Star Wars Battlefront II


Recommended Posts

I downloaded the trial and am playing it. I have played it for a very short time but so far it isn't Mass Effect Andromeda ;).



So far the graphics are fair to good. Better than MEA. The facial animations have some issues from time to time but way better than MEA was. The game play is responsive and easy enough to figure out for the most part. (playing on very easy)

I have been playing less than an hour of my 10 hour trial so I havne't been able to do much but the first section and moving into the second one. I will give them points for their introduction. There is a fixed character you have during the campaign trial. Not sure if you bought the game if you would have a different one, however it is a female which is different than many games for hero. (if she is a hero considering you are playing as a solder from the Empire not a rebel)

I will post some more of my thoughts on this game during my 10 hour trial period. So far I enjoyed it more than MEA... however, that was a very low bar to obtain :P All jokes aside it is so far a solid functional game without any serious glitches. Haven't played enough to see if the story is interesting enough to engage but the shooting is pretty solid. Reminds me of ME3 shooting a bit. I don't play very many first person shooters like Call of Duty and the such so can't compare that.

review and spoiler (of sorts) (glitch experienced)


You play a droid in the very first parts as you escape. there was one glitch that i was able to repeat. It appears in one of the sections the droid can merge or go through part of a wall for a few seconds. I wasn't sure at first but in third person it disappears then reappears if you move out away from the wall. Other than that no other glitches. Of all the glitches I could experience.. that was very minor.

I am giving it a very open minded review. focus on playability and story etc. Not lore (I don't know that much about Star Wars during the time of this game)

Feel free to chime in. Please, chime in serious reviews, Youtube video reviews etc. If there are spoilers please placed them in actual spoilers :P so as not to mess the game up for others. People that actually played the game are more than welcome to make negative comments based on actual situations, story or experiences. Please refrain from commenting unless referencing actual game play or linked video of actual game play. Thank you.

I heard the actual campaign is really short, like 4-6 hrs and that's it.  I also heard you start as playing for the Empire and then are forced to switch sides about half way through.  (So much for the Empire based game they advertised and promised.)  And again I've heard the game play is decent, but the p2w loot box mechanics are built into the core game and advancing with earned rewards is a serious MMO grind.

It might be that the campaign is really short which would really suck. I am not interested in PVP or the like.

I have I believe 2 loot boxes or something like that already. Haven't opened them. Perhaps I will do a capture if I remember when I do so people can see what came out of those

The game play is decent so far. They seem to have done a good job in the creation of the game. It appears to be solid and glitch free etc. Now the story, campaign being short and such.. well that is decisions that the company makes. So long as they are clear from the start (release) as what to expect.. I can't really blame them. However, that doesn't mean I will buy from them ;)

edit: Update



god dam that tie fighter stage is fucking hard. Dam... lol. no glitches just very hard at least for me.

Some other random captures. You can see the loot boxes you can buy still there. you get some for logging on daily etc. (which is cool)

Some other screen captures as well
