    Campaign: The campaign was pathetic. The story was fan-servicing, unoriginal & predictable. I had high hopes for the story obviously because it's Star Wars and a lot of stuff Disney has put out for Star Wars has been pretty good. This was garbage. It took me 6 hours to get through, it looked fantastic, the sound effects were great, the voice acting was mediocre, but the actually story was pathetic. Without any spoilers, it’s a typical rebellion story of how the empire is 'oh so bad' and rebels are 'oh so good', surrounded by un-likeable characters. It seriously felt like a 6 hour tutorial. Such a disappointment. Multiplayer: First off, there's no private matches. The first thing I wanted to do when I bought this was to do a 1v1 with my buddy who lives in a different state to test out all the heroes. You can't do that. There's only 'split-screen' or regular online multiplayer. The actual gameplay is actually pretty fun. There's minor bugs that can easily be overlooked if the game was fine otherwise. This is not the case. Your progression is based around a gambling source. These "loot crates" that cost anywhere between 1,200 - 1,400 in-game credits give you mediocre items (You earn 200-300 credits every 20 minute match). Someone did the math on Reddit, it would take a player over 4,500 hours to unlock everything, UNLESS you shelled out $2,100 to unlock everything on day 1. Sure they removed the ability to buy the crates with actual money (temporarily), but now if you want to progress, don’t expect to unlock everything in even your first few years of playing the game. You’ll still be beaten by some whale that’s played over 500 hours because he has great ‘star cards’ that effect his passive stats and abilities while you have nothing. Second, you either have to choose to unlock heroes or buy these loot crates. To buy Luke or Vader, it’s 15,000 credits. Palpatine, Leia & Chewbacca cost 10,000 credits. Iden Versio (The un-likeable female character from the campaign) costs 5,000 credits. I’ve been playing almost non stop for 4 days and have only unlocked 3 heroes. You should be able to play all of these heroes day 1, they’re iconic Star Wars characters and the paywall is there to only entice players more to buy these stupid loot crates. I feel bad for the development teams that were only in charge of the gameplay, sounds, and game mechanics. Everything in that department is great, except for some easily overlooked bugs or balancing issues (Boba Fett’s weapons a little too strong & Palpatine is fairly weak). It’s a fun game, but it’s riddled with disgusting greedy marketing practices that makes any gamer cringe. If I could return this game, honestly I would. EA does not deserve people paying $60 for this game at all. They're going to bring back the micro-transactions. If you really want to make a statement about greedy business practices, don't buy this game. I wish I hadn't.

    Amazing Gameplay, Scam Progress System

    This game has received so much negative attention for a very good reason. The campaign and gameplay is amazing, fun, well-built, and addicting, in addition to its beautiful graphics and environment. This game has all the ingredients to be a 10/10, but then EA dipped their grimy fingers in it and added in micro-transactions that directly hinder your ability to advance and compete in multiplayer if you choose not to spend extra money. It is a forced gambling system that broke the game before it was even released. The fact that progression is tied directly to chance and microtransactions on a $60-$100 AAA title about one of the best and most successful franchises in the world, just shows you how stupid big publishers think we consumers are. I did pre-order this game and stayed pretty uninformed until I had already picked it up and found that I was not able to play as many of the core heroes without "purchasing" them at an extremely high credit price. In addition, I found that after 5 quick Arcade Mode matches, there was a time-wall placed on earning credits. This is when I got really mad. There are 16 different Solo arcade challenges, each with 3 tiers. That's 48 opportunities to earn a measly 100 credits each, but you don't even earn them after your first 5 matches of the day. Being that you earn 100 credits whether you win or lose, means that you can scoop up those daily 500 credits in under 10 minutes, and then there is no motivation to continue playing, even if you're having fun (I find that arcade mode is the perfect way to just relax and blast some baddies). And just so you have a scale of what this means: Just to unlock Darth Vader, you need 15,000 credits. There are several more heroes that require unlock in the same price range, on top of the fact that randomly generated crates cost 4,000 credits each. This is a huge and unnecessary problem that has destroyed the potential long-term fun of this game. After far too long, I've finally made the pledge to no longer pre-order games, especially from these huge publishers that constantly abuse their customers. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME until they completely restructure the leveling/unlock system, or until it is released as a F2P.

    most of the controversy over this game has been over the online MP microtransactions, as of my writing this, those have been TEMPORARILY removed, meaning they will be back. Otherwise the online has been pretty fun, but the death star map isnt balanced, is graphically boring, and poorly MP designed, Ive played on little else so far. The cards are earned far faster than those original poor estimates on forums people are up in arms about (and hero unlock prices were cut down), but everyone who had EA origin access or an expensive preorder has been able to buy stuff for days, and its not taken away. The campaign - one of the worst I've ever encountered in any game, giant plot holes, explicit breaking of the timeline in the movies, poor gameplay. you only play as the main character for 1/2 of the missions, though Ill say Gavankar's voice acting is fine as Versio, and the motion capture of her face is pretty well done. They shoehorn in all the rebel heroes from the original trilogy, and try to cover their tracks from the last game (battle of Jakku is in this one, MP map in the last game) and they have 2 entire missions unrelated AT ALL to the campaign story which are just promotional material for the next movie. The AI is trash, the storytelling lame, and the game is short and not exciting. The soundtrack and FX are still solid (which Isn't saying much as they've been around for decades, and the people making the original series created them with 70s tech). Some long range visuals are nice, but only made me look twice on two occasions. Going back to using physical models for the ships and vehicles was a good decision (duh) and most of those look really good. I've stopped multiple friends buying this, hopefully you'll make an informed decision now.

    Very fun FPS and flight combat

    I picked this up on launch day and have thoroughly enjoyed it ever since. In addition to multiplayer modes it also has a single player campaign (that I’ve already played through) which has an overall good story but was a little on the short side. The gameplay is great, and I found myself enjoying the air combat just as much (maybe more) than the ground based fps element. The elephant in the room is the loot crate and card system, which has gotten tons of negative press. In order to improve your character/ship (and also unlock new ones), you need to open mystery crates, which are obtained by spending credits that you earn via gameplay and by completing challenges. Initially EA’s intent was a pay-to-win concept in which you could also purchase credits with real money, but that was temporarily suspended due to severe consumer backlash. Also problematic was that popular characters like Darth Vader and Luke were only obtainable for 60,000 credits each, which would literally take months to earn if you only relied on earning credits through gameplay. (They are now 15,000 credits each, and I’ve already unlocked one of them. Less popular characters are 5/10K) Who knows if/when the pay-to-win element will return. It’s hard to swallow spending additional money for popular characters when I’ve already paid quite a bit for the game itself. For now I’m very much enjoying the game itself.

    Dive into Star Wars like never before

    Star Wars BFII is an impressive game. I pre-ordered it and I've played it for hours each week since launch. I had the original battlefront game and it did not keep my interest for very long. However, this one is more immersive and make me want to spend more time playing. First, the campaign is really fun. It's not extremely long, but it is a full story that is both challenging and entertaining as you progress through scenarios. I would say the campaign can be completed (on the highest difficulty) within 7 - 8hrs of continuous game play if you complete the challenges along the way. Online Multiplayer: This is where I spend most of my time in the game. It's simply amazing. The maps look spectacular and the game play is generally smooth. If you are familiar with SWBF, it has a similar feel, but improved mechanics, interactions and challenges. My personal favorite is Star fighter Assault. I can play this for hours. The one element of the game that I don't like is the removal of character customization. Now, your classes are locked to pre-designated avatars. It's not a big deal, but it was significant enough for me to mention here. It's still an incredibly fun game despite that limitation.

    Hate how good it is...

    So first up, I HATE how good this game is. Mechanically it is solid, runs at a constant 60fps on PS4, environments are amazing, and even when you are getting absolutely wrecked you still feel like you're contributing. All that aside, even though pay to win has been disabled for now, pay to win is a think. You pay money or ingame currency to buy a chance at upgrades and equipment (star cards). I'm not a fan of gambling for recreation and I am sure most parents/players aren't either. You can earn roughly 1 chance at upgrades ever couple hours if you're average ( like me). Problem is, either I have terrible luck or things are weights against items as I keep getting victory poses and emotes. I'd honestly hold off on buying this till EA revamps the progression system. Disney is not down with all the negative press, so hopefully that means things will progress in a more meaningful way. There is offline split screen coop, though they are all "kill x many enemies in Y amount of time" with no other objectives. So it's pretty stale in my opinion. Also, you can only earn 600 credits every 3 hours (1/4 of the cheapest loot crate cost). So there is that too...

    Great Game

    Battlefront II definitely has a lot more content than Battlefront 2015. Campaign has a great story, kinda wished it was a little longer. Arcade is a nice replacement for mission and you can also customize settings to whatever your heart desires, which is a huge plus. My only gripe with arcade is, if you want to play with a friend, you can’t play online, you’re stuck with split screen. Multiplayer is much better, especially the new galactic assault mode. It doesn’t take very long to unlock the characters actually, you only need to put in roughly 5 hours or so of multi time to get Luke or Vader, whom are the most expensive. I’m disappointed that this game is already tarnished by both EA and the fans on loot boxes. To be honest, I didn’t really see any unfair advantages on using upgraded star cards before the transaction was turned off. Since Tuesday, when I got my 3 day early access, I’ve been playing without any star cards as an experiment. I usually came out in the top 5 (I’ve had a few bad matches, who doesn’t?). I’m hopeful that this issue will be resolved, sooner than later, because this game could be one of the best Star Wars game.

    Better but a grind

    I'll start with the micro-transactions. it didn't matter because the card upgrade system was/is just as dumb. Even if you bought all the cards you have to be a certain level to upgrade them. so once they put it back it will likely be worse unless fixed as people will be the player level needed. In multiplayer, there are really three modes worth caring about. Starfighter Assault, the spaceship-only skirmish that effortlessly blends objective play with standard dogfights; Heroes vs Villains, where you get to live out your fantasies of playing as iconic Star Wars characters; and Galactic Assault, the Conquest/Rush-style objective mode with the highest player count of 20v20. best xp gain has been from Heroes vs Villains. basically like the first one if you played it. Short matches with lots of points. Single Player is there now but so simple it's useless unless you want the credits and achievements. worst mechanic left off is still not able to climb. they have ramp areas or short places to jump on or over. there are some things or even areas where climbing over would be so helpful
