As a huge Star Wars fan, I'm thoroughly delighted that Star Wars: Battlefront is making a return. From the snowy wastes of Hoth to the forest moon of Endor, this is wish-fulfilment at it's finest, now with the added shininess of the Frostbite engine.
If Battlefront is basically Star Wars plus Battlefield, who better than DICE to lead the charge with this new game? And it's shaping up to be something truly special.
We'll be able to take down TIE Fighters in X-Wings, leap into Snowspeeders and "go for the legs" against AT-ATs, and hit the ground as vital cogs in the machine of war as Imperials go toe-to-toe with Rebel forces. Hero units return, and the chance to lead the fight as Luke or Force-fling enemies about as Darth Vader is tantalising indeed.
That galaxy far, far away is about to get a lot closer.
Star Wars Battlefront is a clone of the battlefield series, this time by DICE no less. In it, your job is to spawn in the middle of nowhere, wander aimlessly, then get picked off by a random sniper, or artillery, or occasionally something you can actually see. Wash,rinse, repeat, until you get bored with it, and delete it. Only this time, with Star wars characters and vehicles! As all games like this, it can be great, with a team, who is actually willing to work together, and doesn't follow the every man for himself mentality. With a team like that it's way to easy to win, but it's still fun. If you go at it alone on the other hand, expect chaos, and squeaking, while you experience what it feels like to be a storm trooper, or regular rebel in a star wars movie. Lots, and lots of death...
I'm not gonna act like previous Battlefront games were masterpieces, but they were extremely well done for their time and Battlefront 2 holds up ok in its multiplayer. EA's Battlefront looks like a modern game but feels like that Battlefront 2. It's clearly much more arcade experience than other modern shooters, and they do replicate this universe in a game more realistically than any game previously. Graphics are fantastic, it looks like Star Wars in every single aspect. Sound design is phenomenal, it sounds exactly like Star Wars should. Guns feel like how you think blasters should feel. Large scale battles feel fantastic with all the people running around, explosions, blasters firing etc. But game design wise it just doesn't hold up. Once that initial awe of "F*** YEAH STAR WARS!" wears off, the mechanics, shooting, pretty much everything gameplay-wise is just sub par, not bad by any means and I did have fun, but it's like playing a PS2 shooter... kinda like Battlefront 2. It's way too arcadey for its own good, there's not enough content, no real single player content which honestly has always been the best thing about Star Wars games, and it doesn't modernise in right aspects. I don't want this to be Modern Military Shooter 1563: Star Wars Edition, but it all just feels too shallow, like Battlefield Lite. There is not much-keeping people playing beyond the Star Wars factor. It's fun but shallow.
This game was a welcome addition to the series and it plays well. The unlock system is a little tedious but really pushes my drive for being a completionist. When I first got this I literally spent a week locked in a dark room playing this I was hooked. Unfortunately after time it got too repetitive with the lack of content. I'll continue to play it as (if) more DLC comes out but definitely worth the purchase, just maybe wait for a sale.
It's fun. A lot of people are hating on Battlefront right now, but it's still fun for a casual gamer, like myself. I enjoy FPS games, and this has pretty good game play, decent standard maps and weapons. The big problem, as usual, is the pay-to-win. I've gotten pretty good and can hold my own in battles, but there are some newer weapons that are just super overpowered. And I'm not willing to shell out for more DLC. Overall, I keep going back to play when I have an hour or so, but I'm sure glad I got this on a super sale!
The base game was really good around launch, but with time the few maps began to lose appeal and now I often find it hard to find a game on anything except the 64 player servers. There is a definitely a lack of customisation with weapons, you get the weapon and that's it, although they do try to shove character customisation in with some random faces. I do enjoy the hutt contracts though, I think they work well as a barrier to the more powerful weapons. In regards to the season pass, if you can get it heavily discounted it's worth it, some of the new maps and modes are amazing, the death star ones in particular. However I really dislike the fragmentation of the player base and sometime older DLC tend to be fairly empty for this reason.
