Hey all

Newcomer to these boards, I just wanted to ask if I SHOULD buy this game.
I've owned it for years, but I was too young to appreciate how great the online would have been.
Anyway, my group of friends have been searching for a game to release us from the trench that CoD and BF have put us in.
I said Battlefront 2 because it's only 10 dollars and I heard that there was still an online community, even though the game launched in 05'.

Questions:
How great is the online following?
Is the game full of hardcore fans that make it impossible for us not so good at the game (I've only played it on PS2). Such as Doom and Counter Strike?
I CAN play Galactic Conquest online right?
Galactic conquest is only 2 player like on consoles right?
How does the game play compared to the console versions?
Finally..
Is it overall worth it?

Thanks, sorry about the wall of text and everything.

Hiya...

How great is the online following?
yes there's still an online following. Not what it was but still there. It's better on the weekends, but the game still has servers hopping during the week.

Is the game full of hardcore fans that make it impossible for us not so good at the game (I've only played it on PS2). Such as Doom and Counter Strike?
There's a few hardcore SWBF2'ers out there, but generally when Steam started releasing the game, most of the hardcore players were already playing something else

I CAN play Galactic Conquest online right?
No

Galactic conquest is only 2 player like on consoles right?
Single player only, no Co-op

How does the game play compared to the console versions?
Finally..
A mouse and keyboard make all the difference.

Is it overall worth it?
I would say yes it's worth it. However the game goes on sale pretty frequently.. so If you're looking to save... I've seen it go as low as $2.50

Thanks for the input!
I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get it.
Can I play online with a friend in a bot server?
Like on splitscreen in the consoles?
