I didn't try the beta. Did any of you like SW Battlefront I but dislike the beta for SWBF II ?

The speeder is stopped on a crowded street by several combat-hardened stormtroopers who look over the Star Wars Battlefront II game. A stormtrooper questions MMORPGHOD.

Trooper Quboid: How long have you had this beta?

MMORPGHOD: About three or four hours.

Obi-Wan Camaro: It's for sale if you want it.

Trooper Quboid: Let me see your identification.

MMORPGHOD becomes very nervous as he fumbles to find his ID while Obi-Wan Camaro speaks to the stormtrooper in a very controlled voice.

Obi-Wan Camaro: You don't need to see his identification.

Trooper Quboid: We don't need to see his identification.

Obi-Wan Camaro: This is not the game your're looking for.

Trooper Quboid: This is not the game we're looking for.

Obi-Wan Camaro: He can go about his business.

Trooper Quboid: You can go about your business.

Obi-Wan Camaro: (to MMORPGHOD) Move along.

Trooper Quboid: Move along. Move along.

Yeah, I don't know what MacD is talking about. Perhaps he is getting the jumpjets confused with the weapon the jump trooper carried. It was a two shot weapon and after about three clips, you had to get reloaded.

since i didn't get into the beta, i will have to sample this game first. like someone said, the game felt "spongy".

why can't they simply play Wolf:ET and the old X Wing vs. Tie Fighter and apply the infantry physics of ET with the flighting physics of X vs T and call it good?

i have sinking feeling that this game is too "loose" feeling, also.. the game speed seems to be too fast -i think.

Hmm, I don't remember being limited to just three uses. I know that they had a limited use in that the "energy" bar would deplete after a few seconds but it would then regenerate.

What really killed the first Battlefront for me was that character with the jumpjets; I played this game at my brother's place, and was actually having a great time with that character, jumping over buildings to place a few potshots, jumping back into cover...AND THEN I DISCOVERED THAT I COULD ONLY USE THE JUMPJET THREE TIMES!

Blam, instant game killer; best character in the game [IMO], useless after three jumps/using it's most fun ability.
The rest just didn't matter anymore...if they can screw up somthing like that (nerfing weapons, ok...nerfing what makes a game fun...well, no twinky, gamedev), then I don't even want to know what else they can screw up.

's like Doom3 (and this is not a call to a flame war; no-one gives a dman wether you loved or hated doom3, and it's not the point here) and it's flashlight. That was a dealbreaker for me; I play games to have fun, period, and a broken mechanism (or call it a mood enhancing effect, whatever), something which forces me to repettitively hate the action I constantly have to perform,'s too short for me to tollerate something like that in a game, when I have to deal with things like that in life all too often.

While there might be thousands playing, there are also a proportional number of people who have quit from the game being sorely incomplete. Did you try that first patch? That was nice that even EA had to come out and say "dont install the patch", nice.

C'mon, I don't need to rehash the laundy list of problems but the fact is, no game is perfect. One guy might like it while ten others will hate it. We can go round and round about whether SWBF2 is going to be any good but in the end, it comes down to preference. I have a life outside of pecking away at this computer so online play is not that important for me. I, for one, am excited about the improved AI and COOP modes. A few of us like to play COOP at work so the improvements will be a welcome addition.

I think any company that tries to combine multiple genres into one game is going to have a hard time. Just look at the people who hate BF2's lame helicopter flight dynamics. Many say they were better in DC. Just as many say the space combat was better in X-Wing. I think we have to take everything with a grain of salt and play a game for entertainment.

Hey, you might be able to pick stuff up with the force, but English teachers can you to FAIL YOUR GCSES! That's a pretty big deal in the UK you, know!

I am obligated to buy this ... even if it was really just George Lucas' poo in a box labeled Star Wars. I bought the first Battlefront and it wasn't bad. This can't be worse, and there are Forces (ahem) beyond my control at work here. So yes, I must buy this.

At least the Jedi Knight series are really good games, so there you have it. Now just make some more, please.

Don't be too proud of the sentence you've constructed. The power of an English teacher is insignificant next to the power of the force.

ROFLMAO! How deliciously geeky of you!

Battlefield 2 is barely playable? Tell that to the tens of thousands playing it at a time. What kind of crack are you smoking, Battlefront 2 beta was god awful. Laggy netcode, pure retarded chance space combat, weird weapons that aren't even in the star wars canon, horribly unbalanced vehicles, need I go on?

Everyone who thinks this title might be any good simply hasn't had the chance to play it first hand.. let me tell you people, this is the worst FPS I've ever ever played. And I've been playing since Wolf3d thank you. In terms of space battles it ain't much either, I feel like the devs haven't played X-Wing series... their OWN game (and yes, Pandemic is technically not LEC, but so what).

So let me tell you what, if you still don't believe me, download the beta first. Otherwise if you buy it in the store you will hate yourself for years on to come.
