    How would you get that impression from the Beta videos? A lot of the issues seem fixable but they certainly don't make it D1P material.

    Gunplay is terrible in this game. Not recommended.

    Not sure if I found the gunplay that terrible, it's definitely arcadey as hell and dumbed down..

    But you shouldn't expect BF levels of weaponry and mechanics. It's a star wars game after all.

    The game is actually really fun. Sure, it lacks depth and I don't think it has enough content to keep me interested over a long period of time, but I've been playing with two buddies and we had a blast every time.

    It's also the best looking game of the year by far, and everything sound related is amazing.

    I'm enjoying this alot. It's casual, it's not mega deep. But's it's tons of fun. It looks, sounds and plays great. And I'm a huge SW nerd.

    The presentation is top notch. I think the DLCs will bring more content, but eh, we'll see.

    Good review, and valid points.. though much of it basically, like all the negative reviews, the butthurt boils down to DLC TOO EXPENSIVE, SHIT GAEM !!1

    I got the game for like 30 dollars, I'm rich, and I don't give a shit. When the DLCs come, this game is going to be even more fun. You can probably get the full season pass + game for like 60 bucks if u search cdkey shops.

    That's a good price for a fun game.

    That's because Vader was a fighter type like Luke, while Emperor was a force user type like Yoda.

    Also force throw in EU is common for both sides and not locked to one specific.

    but for movies that is just like every other villian aiming at an hero, ever. when up against Rebels the first time they slaughter them.

    And that's where the game fails. It should have BF levels of weaponry and mechanics (whatever they are), precisely because this is a Star Wars game and it would be cool to have that kind of stuff in this universe.

    I don't know why people are praising that review - it is emblematic of decline. "Game is shit, but we love it because it looks good and we realize that Star Wars is all about money! Pay through the nose to eat shit, everyone!"

    Game is fucking awful. The fact that it looks so good is depressing and a damn shame.

    Are there valid development reasons why it has a significant reduction in features than battlefront 2? Making a Star Wars game was more relevant than making a well reviewed, good game?

    I never really got Battlefront. The Jedi Knight series had pretty good multiplayer all the way through, but they had a huge amount of singleplayer content as well.

    Wonder if this is just the result of EA fucking DICE over. Those idiots still think they can force every franchise into the same business model they have for their sport games. Battlefied 4 was released two years after Battlefield 3, which was a huge WTF moment considering 5 years went by between Battlefield 2 and 3, and then one year later they come up with Hardline and Battlefront. Really? And i guess next year they are going to release Battlefront 2 cause why the fuck not.

    Battlefield 5 is coming out next year, so I guess the Battlefronts will get each two years development time and release with the mainline SW movies. Huge improvement, I know. :P

    Is Battlefield 3 still going? I actually had mind of trying that. Looks like a military version of Unreal Tournament 2004, which i wouldn't mind. Saw the premium edition going as low as 9 bucks. If it goes on sale again i might give the game a whirl. Last decent DICE game from the looks of it.
