Ships Ahoy - Star Wars Battlefront

LucasArts Blasts onto Store Shelves with the Release of Star Wars Battlefront for the PS2, Xbox and PC is the expected press release announcing that the new Star Wars action game is in stores, coinciding with the release of the original Star Wars trilogy on DVD: "The team-based action within Star Wars Battlefront is set in 16 unique locations across 10 diverse planets including Hoth, Geonosis and Endor. Players can select one of the 20 different soldier types from each of the four factions: Rebel Alliance, Imperial Army, Clone Army and Droid Army.

The sound isnt the best - it sometimes loops sounds for the rest of the game and I dont notice footsteps from other players/bots at all, but that may be because there is firing and explosions around you all the time. also some sound files seem to be faulty because they make weird noises at the beginning and/or ending.

Yes, the maps are too small, but still they FEEL bigger than BF1942 maps at first because the background fits perfectly and I didnt notice any fog at all. but when you take a xwing, snowspeeder, whatever and fly around you will quickly get that "youre leaving the battlefield" message.

it is pretty simple. the weapons only get unprecise after about 10 shots or more for example. what bothers me is the reloading of most weapons since Ive never seen anyone reload his blaster or blaster rifle before in any movie or game.

there are some side balancing issues. for example the trade federations vehicles are too weak vs. the clones vehicles and you will quickly find yourself without vehicles while the other side kills you instantly with their vehicles and you can do nothing about it. trade federation seems pretty weak anyway. the destroyers (droidikas) are far too wussy and extremely slow at aiming.

the jedi in multiplayer games are annoying as shit because you cant even kill them at all, even with an AT AT firing at them for 30 mins. and sometimes you find yourself trapped because there is darth vader or skywalker in the tight walkway or hallway which you need to pass to advance. sometimes (not that rare) they camp your spawn points... I guess its an server option to enable or disable them, but I have yet to see a server that didnt use them.

still there is much more action going on than in any multiplayer game Ive ever played. if someone says it has slow gameplay, he doesnt have a clue at all.

I don't like arguing. Why can't we all just get along instead of fighting and arguing?
