      Regarding the single player campaign

      Posted

      This review is only in regards to the story mode, for anyone who may be interested in that perspective rather than just all the multiplayer pay to win loot box nonsense. This single player was terrible. The story jumped around. You'll play as some "heroes" on some missions. You can choose 1st or 3rd person to play in, but not on the hero missions, where you're forced to play in 3rd. Single player feels like an extension of the multiplayer and does not feel like a typical single player game, like say, Call of Duty. What I mean by that is, you start with a weapon. If you don't like that weapon, you can't just pickup the weapon of someone you killed. You either need to find the very rare weapon rack or a certain type of crate (which may appear only once in a level) and there you can change your weapon and equip cards like the mp has. It was also very, very short. I compare to Call of Duty, because those get criticized for being short campaigns. Reviewers will say 6 hours. They usually take me twice that because I play slowly, like to look at the environment, and run around looking for collectibles and stuff. I saw reviewers saying Battlefront 2 story could be finished in 4 hours. I balked at that. I figured at least 10 hours for me. Nope. I finished the entire game in one sitting in 6 hours, and I died a lot and spent a lot of time exploring levels. So if you were to just run through the levels and not have to reload checkpoints, you could probably beat this in 4 hours. I'm not sure how much multiplayer I will play since I work 2 jobs and don't have a lot of time for that. So to anyone who is really buying this because they wanted a Star Wars story game, the story itself is ok, but it's a tad generic feeling, though it looks amazing on the PS4 Pro. Knowing what I know now, and buying it mainly for single player, I would've waited for this to hit $20. I definitely regret buying this right now.

      Do not listen to people

      If something I have learned in this life is that people complain about anything... One or two popular persons agree on an opinion that the XYZ game sucks and everybody follows blindly to do and say the same thing. People are moved by trends... like if they are some sort of animals acting by instinct. Use your reasoning. The game contains double of the content you found on the first one; one of the best graphics and gameplay we have seen in current generation consoles, all future content, characters, maps, etc. will be free, and yet people complain and say the game is terrible because the grind in the game to get a stupid gun is to much, and you need to pay for them.... That is just ridiculous! Same thing happened last year with COD IW. One of the most underrated video games in history. The game was hated with the reveal trailer that did not even show any gameplay. The best COD campaign in COD history with a great flow, not a single load screen, great acting, the best graphics from all COD, best movements and actions.... How can you say a game is terrible because jet-packs, and running through walls in Mars is not what you want..... again, acting like animals. Two or three popular people agreed on the opinion of boots on the ground and quickly a trend was created; hated without reason. Now COD WWII is having more online problems than with any other COD game, with content copied from other games, lots of load screen between missions, and content that looks like from a game of 2010 and I have not seen a sane reaction to that. Again... trends.... like animals.. "this is popular... lets jump to the current". Now reviewers like GameSpot, IGN, and other popular Youtube reviewers are acting like politicians... saying only what people want to hear. When the COD IW thing happened, a lot of youtube reviewers that gave a good score to the game removed their videos to prevent the stupid hate from people. That is something people do not talk about... This is now happening with almost all popular franchises. I bet that no matter how good God of War, The last of us 2, and many other AAA upcoming games will be, the same thing will happen... people will ignore all the goods things about the game, recline over a little flaw and overreact about it. THIS IS THE NEW TREND!!!!

      Battlefront II reinvents the wheel or the yoke...

      Battlefront II reinvents the wheel or the yoke... placing the roll and pitch on separate sticks, inverting flight controls so pulling up pushes you down and assigning them in conjunction with yaw; interpreting childish flight mechanics that pretty much every video game title aces into a bizarre ballet of 'what is going on'. The "solution' leading to more disappointment?: Diving into the menus you can switch the flight controls to 'legacy' (WHEN DID FLIGHT CONTROLS GO FROM LEGACY TO CONTEMPORARY?? WHAT IS THIS) -- even after that extremely nightmarish logic, the controls thereafter remained extremely finicky, putting myself as a flight sim veteran for over 20 years and a fighter ace from Battlefront and even Ace Combat into - how did this happen - who approved this - and why are they not fired for screwing up one of the most important flight schematics in the last thirty years of gaming with the name of Disney bearing down on them! TURNED OFF - so glad that I did not commit to a preorder; and I heard from my friends that this was one to avoid as they too experienced the pay to play nonsense. There used to be a slight division between the empty and premium-filled Ubisoft titles of days past and EA's pop media pay to play the blockbuster; as far as I am concerned -- there is none at this point and EA is following the path of ubisoft delivering on empty promises and the original successes and desperate fanbases of titles going on two decades old. A New Hope was released in 1977...2018 going onto almost half a century, and a publisher has yet to create a blockbuster title that combines all of the popular elements of Star Wars of lightsabers included with the incredibly driven success of its exciting and massive star fighter arena within a satisfying multiplayer experience. Not even Dice/Electronic Arts/Disney/LucasArts! Battlefront was a disappointment with a very shallow take on star fighters even as opposed to the history of battlefield games; the mod "Galactic Conquest' for Battlefield: 1942 on PC had more starfighter action in 2004. oh and better flight controls.

      Where's the rest of the game?

      There was quite a bit of buzz behind Star Wars: Battlefront II. Fans hoped that lessons were learned from the release of the first Battlefront for Playstation 4 and X Box One in 2015. While the developers got many things right, there also appears that they got some things wrong. I feel that fans of the Star Wars: Battlefront series will come away from this game thinking that it took two steps forward and also two steps backward. Let me explain. The online multiplayer is really good. Galactic Assault and Starfighter Assault are amazing and worth the price of admission. Online multiplayer also includes Heroes vs. Villains and Blast modes (essentially variations of deathmatch). The offline component is where this game really falls flat. The campaign, while good, is way too short and is restricted to one player. It is also a really predictable story, and one that Star Wars fans have seen before (many times). Arcade mode is really bad. It doesn't seem like they (the developer) spent much time with this mode at all. It seems almost half finished; what little gameplay is there is basically the same mission type over and over again across the same maps. Light side or Dark side doesn't really matter. There's also no way to play with vehicles offline. Horrible decision there, as flying in the Millennium Falcon, an X-Wing, or a Tie Fighter are big lures for Star Wars fans. While I hope that content updates are forthcoming in 2018, I'm not holding my breath. If you're going to spend a great deal of time playing online, this game is a decent purchase. If you're expecting a great online and offline experience, I can't say that I would recommend Battlefront 2. We're still waiting on a true, worthy successor to the original LucasArts Battlefront games.

      Don't you just love lootboxes and pay to gear?

      Do you like being able to pay for gear and stats upgrades so you don't need to earn it in game? Do you like having gear and items hidden behind an RNG system of lootboxes and gambling like mechanics? Then you'll love this game! You can pay to have weapon and stat bonus increases. Everything is hidden behind lootboxes. They implemented lootboxes and payments so you are more inclined to purchase them instead of earning them through the currently tedious crafting system. Being at the top of the leaderboard during games earns you the same credits as someone at the bottom. There is no progression system. It's more like a mobile game than what you'll be used to from other similar games like Battlefront 1 or Battlefield. Want to put vanity lootboxes where you pay for cosmetic items? That's perfectly fine with me. However, I will not be paying for a multiplayer game where gear and statistics are based on how much real world money I put into a game.

      I loved BF1 2015 despite not having a campaign and paying for season pass which i normally never buy. Now with BF2 I was extremely excited to get free dlc with more maps and a new campaign added, More heroes and great class base system. I knew it had to be a catch when EA has anything to do with a AAA game. We all know by now the dreaded microtransactions (MT) had to replace the free dlc. I don’t mind MT as long as it doesn’t effect gameplay. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case with BF2 even in the beta I played. Thankfully the MT were temporarily removed after a mob of angry gamers brought attention to EA firewalling heroes and making you feel like you need to pay for random non guaranteed items you get from loot crates. Hopefully EA is wise and when they return the loot crates its straightly cosmetics and make progression rewarded with more points for skilled players. I would be shocked if MT wasn’t completely removed from progression to make the game fun and rewarding. I haven’t played the campaign yet nor final build but I am sure the game will be great just like the beta. I did see bugs in the beta and heard bugs in final build. I know DICE will fix those issues. It’s too much at stake. I am sure the campaign is good not great. But BF old games never had a great campaign either. The MP is where all the greatness ly in BF2. Arcade mode is also another mode more beefy than BF2 2015. BF2 will be great game for a long time with a steady stream of great heroes, maps, modes and added story content. I just hope to get a black lifesaber wielding hero such as mace windu added to the free dlc. Dice, Make it happen.

      I'm a pretty big Star Wars fan and have played a number of Star Wars related games over the years, including the original Battlefront games for the Playstation 2, so I was pretty excited when they announced the first Battlefront game for PS4, and though I was somewhat disappointed with the lack of a single player campaign it was pretty fun. This followup is also pretty fun, and improves on its predecessor in some ways, including adding a pretty engaging single player campaign, but like its predecessor it started out pretty bare bones for its offline content, mostly relying on their online content (which you have to pay for a subscription for), and also like its predecessor they have been gradually adding more DLC content to it overtime, which fortunately has been free. I hope when they have finished adding this extra content that it will be a more complete game but for now I'd say it's pretty fun, though more fun when playing with friends, as was the first game, as there isn't much for single players to do at this point unfortunately. All in all though I'd say it's a good Star Wars game, in spite of some negative views do to some controversy involving EA, and is worth trying out, and has potential to be even better in the future.

      A fun game overall despite the negatives.

      The campaign was really well done and even has a bonus story that's included with a free update. Playing through the campiagn can also give you a bit of a head start in the online multiplayer by unlocking some Credits several loot boxes for it. Same for the single player Arcade mode. The multiplayer is fun as well with many different models to choose from. The loot boxes can be a draw back and make it feel like some players with better equipment can easily take on a new player, but I guess a lot of online multiplayer sort of feel like that anyways. I do wish the loot boxes were a bit less random, though. The unlockable Heroes, Villians, and Starships may cost a lot of Credits (and time, too), but there is a game mode called Heroes vs. Villians that rewards the players with a pretty good amount of Credits even if you win or lose. Of course, you do get more if you win. This game mode is a quick and fun way to unlock these characters. I haven't even put that much time into the game and I have most of the characters/starships unlocked, only about 4 or 5 are left. Overall, I'd say the loot boxes are the only major negative about this game, but I am still enjoying it. I would prefer choosing what I could unlock for each trooper/character/starship, but I'll just have to go along with it for now. Maybe I'm just being a sucker for Star Wars, but I like the game overall.
