Gameplay: STAR WARS ‘Battlefront I/II’: Luke Skywalker
The Force is stronger with young Skywalker than you could ever imagine.
The Average Player
There is a truly subtle difference from the Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Battlefront 2015 and its sequel. Skywalker‘s speed is the same but his movements have been refined in the sequel as you don’t aimlessly jump and glitch into the maps at times. When Luke Skywalker swings the lightsaber at rushing Stormtrooper in gameplay it’s the same, deadly and swift. His movements are varied and powerful, featuring wide-sweeping, heavy attack with his lightsaber that can take out large groups of Imperials. From a distance, Skywalker‘s Force Push is one of the most gratifying moves as it sends any enemy flying back, but don’t stop there as his Saber Rush propels you through a swarm of enemies with extreme lightning speed.
Skywalker returns in the 2015 Battlefront sequel and comes out swinging for the Rebel Alliance. He comes back with three abilities that make Luke Skywalker the legendary Jedi Knight he truly is. Coming back is the Force Push but simply named Push, his rush attack that is a combination of but the Saber Rush and his Heavy Strike. However, his new ability that truly displays the evolution of the character is the Star Card, “Repulse”. Luke uses the force to knock down nearby enemies surrounding him. Although this move doesn’t kill a full health player it does a great deal of damage and stuns them for Luke to swing the finishing attack.
Luke Skywalker, out of all heroes or villains in Battlefront I and II has a balance of speed and strength that you may be able to get away with using the Jedi Knight for a great deal of 5-6 minutes. In Battlefront 2015, the flaw to using Luke Skywalker to the fullest extent is the fact that his health doesn’t regenerate like it does in Battlefront II, but his abilities all you to get enough kills. In the video below is gameplay I captured playing with both versions of Luke Skywalker from Star Wars: Battlefront (2015) and Star Wars: Battlefront II.
