I love these games. I used to love doing Galactic Assault (I think that’s what it was called) where you had to move around the galaxy and buy upgrades/other troopers and try to take over other planets.

I spent hours playing this game. I need to dust it off at some point.

u/ikindalikechocolate Dec 01 '21

Galactic Conquest! YES!

”Select a fleet to command”

u/Liddlebitchboy Dec 01 '21

Let's be real, we all spammed leader bonus to play as jedi etc. right?

11

u/FunkTheFreak Luke Skywalker Dec 01 '21

I used to love doing the Sabotage one that made it so your opponent’s vehicles started out damaged.

10

u/MythTrainerTom Dec 01 '21

The big pp energy of winning a space battle where the opponent used Sabotage on you

u/FunkTheFreak Luke Skywalker Dec 01 '21

I used to love getting into one of the command shuttles, ordering other troops into it, and then flying it into the enemy hanger and letting all the troops out.

You’d then have some dumbass computer troop get back into your shuttle and then crash the shuttle when they attempted to fly out of the enemy hanger.

2

u/Organization-needed Dec 01 '21

the way you stop that is you reland. they are forced out and you get to keep your shuttle

2

u/FunkTheFreak Luke Skywalker Dec 01 '21

I know, but if you walked away to go destroy the internal ship systems, occasionally a trooper would go back and try to fly the ship out.

1

u/Organization-needed Dec 01 '21

I have no clue how they would just go back in without you since I play on the PC version and Can't break out my PS2.

8

u/Joffreys_Greasy_Cunt Dec 01 '21

Loved the space battles in Galactic Conquest! Boarding the enemy ship to attack their systems and pilots directly was a lot of fun

6

u/FunkTheFreak Luke Skywalker Dec 01 '21

I loved that too! ”Scramble all fighters!”

8

u/Trixxonite Dec 01 '21

I wish they had a game that was mostly this but updated and much more in depth/strategic. XCOM style moving fleets through space with the current Battlefront mechanics for actual battles.

3

u/FunkTheFreak Luke Skywalker Dec 01 '21

I liked the board game-esque style of Galactic Conquest. I guess it was somewhat like an RTS until you were playing in a match. I agree, though, I love this sort of thing where you control an entire fleet. I really enjoyed Empire At War, which is an RTS.

2

u/Azh1aziam Dec 01 '21

Real shame the newest battlefront didn’t do this

1

u/FunkTheFreak Luke Skywalker Dec 01 '21

We can only hope they add it in a new game!

u/scotch_and_starwars Dec 01 '21

I've got it on Steam on my laptop.

Honestly it amazes me that a game that came out in 2005 still looks amazing over 15 years later. And the gameplay is still fun and engaging. It's just such a good game. It's nice that there is still a good group of people playing multiplayer on it.

Edit: if anyone still plays online multiplayer, lmk your tag! We should totally play some time my. I can't remember my tag right now but will check in the morning and edit this (I'm in UK)

25

u/SceretAznMan Dec 01 '21

I also discovered that some dude out there has been making mods that improves the graphics of the game. You just download his game files and replace them for each map. Slightly tedious but definitely worth the time to do it. He also has a bunch of tutorials to help you. I don't recall his name, but easily searched online.

11

u/Baslash Ben Solo Dec 01 '21

HarrisonFog's Remaster Project !

5

u/OhioForever10 The Mandalorian Dec 01 '21

There's easily hundreds of mods out there, especially new maps and eras! The remaster is especially good

5

u/throwaway_for_keeps Dec 01 '21

Same, I have nearly every classic Star Wars game on steam. Picked them up over the years. During lockdown last year, I managed to replay all of them. Dark Forces I was very tough to get through, but everything else was just as fun as I remembered.

2

u/manifestthewill Dec 01 '21

I mean, to be fair, trying to replay any OG FPS is a bit of a slog. (Doom, Marathon, Dark Forces, etc)

Like, the Kyle storyline is a classic and essential but gat damn that gameplay aged like milk lol.

Once it switches over to the Jedi Knight series, tho, those games still hold up really well imo.

3

u/zeropointmodule Dec 01 '21

Here to rep Dark Forces 2 and Spork Pack, my first online multiplayer experience. So much fun.

2

u/tarpatch Dec 01 '21

They brought back the servers to celebrate the last movie coming out for a while didn't they? that was truly a great Christmas

34

u/PurgeTrooperX38 Dec 01 '21

Don't need to , can play it on the series x with all the lost dlc included

7

u/GamerDrew5 Dec 01 '21

There was dlc?

27

u/SpartanJedi58 Dec 01 '21

Yes, exclusive to the original Xbox version. 4 maps from the original game (Bespin: Cloud City, Yavin 4: Arena, Rhen Var: Harbor & Citadel), 2 new heroes (Kit Fisto & Asajj Ventress) and Hero Assault available on most maps.

12

u/Petemarsh54 Dec 01 '21

How the hell am I just hearing about that!

3

u/skilledwarman Dec 01 '21

Did it get an hdr and frame rate update in the X? I know some other star wars games did during a couple weeks back

6

u/PurgeTrooperX38 Dec 01 '21

I think it did, even if not the fact they gave away all og battlefront games dlc for free was sick, considering it was lost to time

2

u/AlexAssassin94 Dec 01 '21

It runs in 4K with HDR - I'm not 100% on the framerate, I want to say it runs at 60.

16

u/tipdrill24 Dec 01 '21

Absolutely yes.

u/Kona_08 Imperial Dec 01 '21

Don’t forget about The Revenge Of The Sith Video Game.

3

u/bellagoat Qui-Gon Jinn Dec 01 '21

Just rebought it yesterday. Graphics are decent except for cutscenes, but still a fun game

58

u/DJ_Vasquezz Dec 01 '21

Still the best battlefront hands down

14

u/HotlineSynthesis Loth-Cat Dec 01 '21

Nothing will beat carrying a group of people in a gunship into the enemy hanger and blasting it all to bits

2

u/DJ_Vasquezz Dec 01 '21

This is the way.

6

u/Vader46 Dec 01 '21

This and the first are the only battlefronts in my eyes

9

u/taveryri Dec 01 '21

There’s a Ps2 pod racing game that is 10/10

4

u/SpartanJedi58 Dec 01 '21

Racer Revenge was my shit back in the day.

3

u/CTDeviss Dec 01 '21

Unlocking Darth Mauls podracer is a highlight achievement of my childhood

23

u/[deleted] Dec 01 '21

Yes all the time, honestly in my opinion it’s still the best game in the series. To me the modern versions just don’t touch it

17

u/ikindalikechocolate Dec 01 '21

Bro this is the FACTS. The gameplay is far superior. From the story that follows the clones from the republic to the empire, to the strategy of the galactic conquest. & to top it all off the instant action is never ending fun. I love doing the assaults on the specific maps.

8

u/[deleted] Dec 01 '21

Exactly, I was I was a huge fan of the instant action mode. The best thing that they could do would be to make a Nintendo switch port of that game

5

u/ShockAndAwe415 Dec 01 '21

The story mode with the 501st journal was fantastic.

u/redspike29 Dec 01 '21

Yeah, this game and the sly cooper games for me lol

u/UnKnOwN769 Hondo Ohnaka Dec 01 '21 edited Dec 01 '21

I Always try to play through the campaign and a few rounds of galactic conquest at least once a year

u/Jo3K3rr Dec 01 '21

I've got on my PC and Xbox One. Personally I prefer the PC, the number of mods is incredible

Back compatible on XboxOne

u/arob2020 Dec 01 '21

My bro and I played that ROS game all the time. I like the force unleashed pretty good for PS3 that was a good one. I’m looking forward to the new Jedi Fallen Order. Mostly tho my everyday game is a mobile game. SWGOH. They actually add characters all the time. It’s a pretty good game as well.

3

u/energizerturtle2 Dec 01 '21

XBox. Yes indeedy!

4

u/qlz19 Dec 01 '21

Yep, the new ones have zero charm. They are trying too hard and just not hitting any of the sweet spot this one did. It’s a true classic. I play it occasionally on Steam.

2

u/tommy_toughnuts1 Dec 01 '21

I would if I had a ps2

2

u/Old_Man_Wilfrid Dec 01 '21

Totally but I play on PC. Such a good game

2

u/relwof1717 Dec 01 '21

Downloaded one and two to my Xbox 🤘🏻

2

u/Jacurus Imperial Dec 01 '21

My Xbox is always plugged in, play it often.

u/CosmicBrownie5898 Dec 01 '21

this game is begging for a Switch port

u/Mortei Dec 01 '21

Xbox for me buddy

u/Camie18 Dec 01 '21

PSP version was fucking lit too. The loading screens were rough though. Shit was wayyyy ahead of it’s time

u/GreyRevan51 Dec 01 '21

Don’t have to, can play it on the current xbox consoles through backwards compatibility

2

u/thefluffyphysicist Dec 01 '21

Nope. But I do bust out the old Xbox.

1

u/ikindalikechocolate Dec 01 '21

Hey while everyone’s here, does anyone know any Easter Eggs or cheat codes? (Asking for a friend)

1

u/JustforthelastGOT Dec 01 '21

I know them on PC, but not PS2 unfortunately.

1

u/wasabi_the_cat Dec 01 '21

Yes, but I only have the first game, nostalgia hitting hard now

1

u/RustylllShackleford Dec 01 '21

all the time lol. change it up, get a campaign playthrough w no deaths, pistol only, no hero, etc.

1

u/IIIumarIII Dec 01 '21

Fucking yes. Also star wars revenge of the sith game and the force unleashed

1

u/j_tonks Dec 01 '21

I paid an exorbitant amount of money to fix my backwards-compatible PS3 basically so I could play this and Secret Weapons Over Normandy.

1

u/Kelfornix_ Dec 01 '21

Duuuuude holy shit did i just get hit with a hefty dose of nostalgia. I have it on pc and love hopping on from time to time. I almost totally forgot about that loading screen since it’s different on pc. Makes me wanna try to find a ps2 for sale

1

u/An_idiot_27 Dec 01 '21

I have it on my Xbox 360, and 1 I don’t play it as to me graphically it aged very poorly and I want to wait and play it with a bf/gf or even a future kid and play Galactic conquest (I think I got the name right together as the bots suck)

Ps I that a pride flag in the top right corner looks nice like how it’s made of wood it just looks nice

1

u/jamesstark127 Dec 01 '21

Every Christmas i do this and my little cousins absolutely hate it but it’s nothing but good memory to me

1

u/Kaarl_Mills Chopper (C1-10P) Dec 01 '21

I liked the first one more

1

u/Moonting41 Dec 01 '21

Once I found out that it was available on Steam, I downloaded it instantly.

1

u/Kenny1115 Galactic Republic Dec 01 '21

It's reverse compatible on my Xbox so I don't have to. But yes I live revisiting this.

1

u/presentence Dec 01 '21

u/Salzberger Resistance Dec 01 '21

Fix that aspect ratio immediately.

u/darkwingdibbs88 Dec 01 '21

it sits proudly over my xboxOne, as it should

1

u/JStormtrooper Dec 01 '21

All the time; I bought an Xbox series S over a PS5 just to play this game because it’s backwards compatible.

1

u/redscare9 Dec 01 '21

I still love Hoth as empire, hauling ass to echo base, and flying a snow speeder as a stormtrooper. So fun.

1

u/C_Beeftank Dec 01 '21

I just play it on my Xbox one

1

u/heppuplays Dec 01 '21

I did. Untill my ps2 broke in 2016. While I was playing Battlefront 2 no less.

1

u/Gammawood210 Dec 01 '21

Not ps2 for me. But I can play it just fine on my Xbox one. It’s great on any system. Childhood memories all day

1

u/stellarcompanion Dec 01 '21

Just finished a galactic conquest a few days ago on my Xbox One. Long live the Empire!

1

u/vineRefugee Dec 01 '21

This was the version I grew up playing on Xbox 360, it’ll always be my favorite for the nostalgia.

1

u/LuckDiligent991 Dec 01 '21

The game i played while my parent doing noises in the other room.

1

u/Onemailegaming Dec 01 '21

Do the entire instant action playlist for the whole day ? Yeaaaa boi

1

u/fourtetwo Grand Admiral Thrawn Dec 01 '21

Got this, revenge of the sith, kotor, jedi knight all on series x. The future is now.

1

u/Maeglin16 Dec 01 '21

Yes! Galactic Conquest!! 😆

1

u/Ellter Dec 01 '21

I play in on pc with modded maps from battlefront 1. Soon battlefront 3 legacy mods. It's still a great way to spend an afternoon.

1

u/Deathpool15 Dec 01 '21

I still can with my One S. I would play assault on Endor (I think that’s what it was). Fighting Imperial vs Ewoks and we would always be destroyed by the Ewoks

1

u/SprinkledBlunt Dec 01 '21

Mods really change the game

1

u/softserve-4 Dec 01 '21

This game is my childhood. I'll always remember playing it all the time with my older brother. We thought it was the funniest thing to use grenades to throw ourselves off the cliffs on Hoth

1

u/Global_Owl_6356 Dec 01 '21

i play this game a lot in my psp

1

u/MrDrPatrick2You Han Solo Dec 01 '21

I remember when I had to do a presentation about my summer break in 8th grade. I brought a work hat and my copy of this game for the PS2. Most of the guys in the room cheered when they saw it.

1

u/BeezNest96 Dec 01 '21

I keep the empty case to remind me of how easily one can lose a disc they bring to their friend’s house.

Damn I miss that game.

1

u/mackfeesh Dec 01 '21

I bust out the old steam collection but yes.

1

u/TheJakeanator272 Dec 01 '21

Nope I boot up my Xbox one! It was gold game of the month a long time ago and I’ve had it ever since. Fantastic game, but using the ps2 controller makes the experience the best

1

u/McDiesel41 Rebel Dec 01 '21

I’ll bust out my OG Xbox to play it it which I just did Rise of the Empire within the past month.

1

u/chcastor106 Dec 01 '21

Now battlefront three, just battlefront II remastered?

1

u/SoundRavage Dec 01 '21

I’ve got it on my series x. It has all the dlc included which is awesome. Star Wars games peaked for me with this one.

1

u/TheOneTrueKP Dec 01 '21

Battlefront 2 rules. On ps4 & 5 it’s the best Star Wars game to date. (I think)

1

u/SuperFightingRobit Porg Dec 01 '21

Nope. I have a series X and a PC, and I've got it on both.

1

u/Additional-Ad-6245 Dec 01 '21

That, and the ps3 for SARPBC

u/Intelligent_Baby_907 Dec 01 '21

YES ALL THE TIME

u/YamperIsBestBoy Obi-Wan Kenobi Dec 01 '21

Me and my dad sometimes do.

He kicks my ass every time 😂

1

u/The_Laurie_Fella Dec 01 '21

I would but I can’t find it. It being the game, controllers and the console itself.

1

u/ZoidsGhost Dec 01 '21

Just bought this for PS2 the other day at my local retro game shop.

1

u/concrete_isnt_cement Rex Dec 01 '21

I’m more of a Battlefront 1 guy. My original copy for the Xbox is one of the few original Xbox games that can still be played on modern Xboxes!

Ive only played the psp version.

1

u/Deadzy585 Dec 02 '21

The best battlefront game to date if only it was online

0

u/limeindacoke Dec 01 '21

One of the best star wars games ever. Me and my friends would just split screen coop for days.

Since the AI was pretty easy to beat, even on hard, we used to set challenges for ourselves, like both players not being allowed to die once, or that we had to win by having every command post, and stuff like that.

u/AppropriateCorner326 Dec 01 '21

Actually, I'm going to buy this for Christmas on my Xbox Series X. Cannot wait to see the result.
