Star Wars Battlefront 2

Recommended Posts

First, what platform do you play it on? Do you ever feel like teaming up for some missions, multiplayer etc?

Second, what are your initial impressions?

Personally, I think this game is alright. I play on Xbox one and every time I quit between matches, I get error code 327. Second, when playing in Starfighter Assault, there are several times I spawn in as a pilot and thrusters, no ship is displayed. In Heroes vs Villains, the light saber duels come off as very luck based, anyone could win. Kind of hack and slash when engaged.

The challenge system will encourage players to play for a while, but the level session system overall is quite demanding pointswise to me. I feel the credits, crystals, crafting parts currencies is too much and was only there to encourage loot crate in game purchases. Thank Satan Disney wouldn't put up with the bad press and removed the loot box purchasing immediately.

I'm playing on PS4.

It's not a perfect game but its so much better than BF2015.  The amount of content in the game is what I expected from BF2015, and adding all the DLC in for free was a great move by EA/Dice.

I'm really enjoying the campaign and looking forward to trying the new DLC levels.

I'm not that good at the online stuff as I prefer to play the sniper role and the Specialist class in the game is rubbish. Its still fun though, even if I find the levelling system a tough grind (I'm a casual player so can't afford to sink hours in to it).

@TheHansonGoons I am a huge Star Wars fan and Battlefront 2015 was such a let-down for me, that I vowed not to buy the sequel. It sounds like they fixed a lot of the problems that plagued the first game, but I am still not going to get it. When I get the Star Wars itch, I still have KOtOR and me and the kiddo can play Lego Star Wars. :lol:

Thanks bro! I play KOtOR on my laptop on Steam. Me and the kiddo play LSW:The Complete Saga on his PS3. All of my Xbox One games are supposed to be playable on the new console. I wasn't ever able to find out, because Amazon sent me an expensive brick. ? I have Ft13th on Xbox and a copy for Steam. Looking forward to loading it up on the new console.

Let me know when you get that box unboxed and running. If all works and goes according to plan, hit me up and we can run a few games.

Won't spend my money on it. I don't have time to grind for star cards and heroes. I don't trust EA to keep their pay to win microtransactions in their pants either. Shame because I enjoyed the Beta.

I played it for a few weeks...it was okay. The space fighting and Heroes are the only real good game modes, and the story was a bit of a let down.

The game overall is a let down to me .Battlefront One although less ,has better quality than two.

I've contemplated getting it because I love the first reboot, but I'll probably wait until it goes down in price because I'm stingy.

I was so excited to finally get my hands on BF 2 and then felt like it was a complete let down. I'm actually trading my copies of BF1 and 2 for Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Play on PS4 and a huge Star Wars fan. Was so disappointed with BF2015, I found this on sale through psn around Christmas. I think 40% off so gave it the chance and like it a lot so far. Not my favorite game, but leagues above the last. Love they have Darth Maul in it, my only complaint is EA and their loot box crap. I understand now that the storm has died down, they are thinking about trying to re-implement it. If that is the case they will effectively kill their own game, not even a year after release.

I would like to see a Battlefield style Conquest Large game mode added. Galactic Conquest isn't really my cup of tea considering how different the games are, and how lop sided the game can be when someone gets a heavy vehicle.

I sold this game shortly after purchasing it, something I never do but I didn't find it fun at all. Going straight into a game of battlefield 1 after playing star wars battlefront showed how inferior everything felt from guns, movement and overall gameplay. Such a shame.
