I've got the 16GB of memory, but a 2GB card. It ran very well on ultra for me. I could tweak it for more fps, but it was over 30 anyway and ran fluidly.
The game is just too chaotic to play. As good as it looks and sounds, there's just nothing to it. Spawn, die, spawn die. Unlike the old games, you have no control over where you spawn in on the map--either random point or by a squad member you don't know anything about. You can't run to a hanger and take off in a snow speeder, you just get lucky finding a random token on the map. Typically it spawns you in right by an enemy who promptly kills you before you can get your bearings. There's nothing tactical, it's just a contest of individuals working on their k/d ratio.
I hope they change all of that for the actual game, but I doubt it. What a waste of an opportunity. I've been looking forward to this for a long time, but they blew it. Dropping my pre-order.

I, unfortunately, feel the same as RK. I want to love it, but it's really just a lesson in frustration, compounded by the fact that the presentation is so good, the game itself is just way too unorganized. You don't spawn anywhere tactically, it's completely random, and your always surrounded. No one cares about the objectives, there just isn't any tactical game play, it's really just Team Death Match w/ blasters and light sabers. But it's the game itself that shoots itself in the foot, because just a little more effort would have made a huge improvement.

The force is strong in this game, but it's unfortunately, gone to the dark side...

I'm a massive star wars fan, but after reading reviews on it I don't think I'll bother with the beta...

Yep he nails it exactly for me as well, uninstalled the beta after an hour.

Spawn, pew-pew-pew, death, rinse and repeat, not fun. Maybe the full game will have more who knows. It's a Star Wars game for kids, and that's cool with me as I won't be playing it.

Thanks for all of the posts guys. I'll be passing on this game.

Yeah I just don't get these "big" developers anymore. Ubisoft still seems like king of bozos when it comes to braking stuff that wasn't broken or claiming the next title is a reflection of customer feedback only to reveal that it actually is not.

Yeah I can't believe that they couldn't even keep the good maps and destructibility of BF4, they totally missed the mark, I cancelled my preorder.

I played around 1-1.5hr of it. It seems nice enough, a bit faster paced than the BF series. We didn't see all the game modes in action, so I've keeping a relatively open mind. I was hoping for more of a Battlefield, set in the Star Wars universe, as most Battlefield fans were.

I'll wait and see how this plays out and maybe get it later. I won't get DICE'ed again (re: BF4 launch fiasco)

I am a huge star wars fan. But this game looks sh1t. Seriously outright sh1t.

Just because its got skins and music of star wars, does not make it a star wars game.

This pile of poo really isn't for me and the low down dirty trick of offering prizes to reviewers who get people to buy it is disgusting.

Take it and shove it. This pile of excrement won't see my money.

Sad to see this fail. I got excited when watching the trailers, but they seemed to drop the ball big time with this one.

They should do a Star Wars mod for Arma3.

Well, no- it looks and sound amazing. Brilliantly so.

But the gameplay- yes it sticks badly.

Creatively it seems like a big fail but commercially it may still be a huge success.

Well that is the sad thing. People are happy to sell a polished turd. Worse though is people wanting to buy a polished turd.

Are games that boring that crap like this can sell like hotcakes. Or is the wonders of starwars that is selling this crap

It's definitely the latter. The Phantom Menace did make over 400 million at the box office after all.

Outside of the EA forums, what I hear is mostly critical of the game in general, from mediocre to bad. I have yet to find someone that thinks this is a hit based on the beta. (Yes, it sounds and looks amazing, but that's it so far).

It seems a lot of people are cancelling pre-orders based on what was presented, feeling that the final release will not be worth the admission price.

The recent experiences with publisher reactions to Arkham Knight performance and the escalated pre-order bonus scheme with Deus Ex : Mankind Divided, are evidence that the PC gaming crowd has become a whole lot more vocal and effective and not be lead on by gimmicks for a half assed product.

Return policies on digital downloads have helped that cause too. Gamers have more options to talk with their wallets.

Yeah I cancelled my preorder because I don't want to pay full price for a shallow possibly unfinished game, which will launch in a month and can't be postponed due to the movie tie-in, how much could they change from the beta in a month?

BF4 is a great game now, but it launched in terrible state, let's hope EA can fix this.
