As depressing as it is I'm already fatigued by the game just watching gameplay of it. Certainly could have done so much more with the series but they didn't.

It's amazing how popular the "take something and make it prettier and more shallow" is compared to the "take something and release the exact same thing for the current generation of tech". All they had to do was take Battlefront 2 and slap it into the Frostbite engine.

Yea the content is really shallow IMHO. And the best mode from BF2 wont even make the game (space battles) which might be a good thing because the vehicle combat is extremely shallow and reduced from even what it was in BF2.


And we as its creators don't feel ready to hear your annoyed jabber about it.

For me it's hard going from the relaxing pace of warships and even armored warfare, and going to the crazy pace of a respawn game. I can sleep after playing those other games, but games like this make me frustrated.
Not happy, I was really looking forward to this.

Really not liking the pick-up system for grenade weapons and emplacements.

I think that's my problem a well, the enemy can spawn in behind you and you won't even know it til it's too late, which was a bad design decision. But, it's only one map and one game mode (I can't even play walker assault due to the now well known 100% CPU bug!), so I'm gonna reserve my judgement, as well as my ca$h.

I rarely agree with Mack, but in this case, he nails exactly what's wrong with the game. I just couldn't put it into words.

I'm really disappointed. Cancelled my order. I was really looking forward to this.

Ditto cancelled my order last night and Green Man Gaming already refunded the money to my paypal this morning, hopefully they can do like BF4 and salvage it down the road, oh well at least my other pre-order that comes out same day should be better (Fallout 4).

Damn. I had a hundred bucks in cash sitting in a drawer since July to buy this. Well--thanks for the beta! I know now not to buy it. Hmm... now... Elite Dangerous season two is looking tempting. CQC is fantastic and perhaps it will draw more PvP oriented players into the game to fuel open.

I watched my friend stream it yesterday, and wasn't impressed at all. It doesn't bring ANYTHING new to the table; it's simply *insert online fps here* with a Star Wars skin. Definitely not worth $60+ IMO.

It's also interesting how the recommended system req. are just completely overboard...GTX 970 4gb, Core i5 6600, and 16gb of RAM??

It looks\feels like a cash grab

To be fair, there is a good game here, it's just buried under a metric ton of bull #%&*$#. For me, only one thing can save it from becoming a joke, and that's if DICE can either change the spawning functionality, or at least give us the option via filtering to choose a type of spawning preference.

I was extremely unimpressed. There is a decent shooter in there certainly, but it's absolutely buried under bizarre design decisions.

AGREED. That's what is so frustrating.
Give us a map (needs one anyway), and a map before spawning in, with a choice of spawn points..such as Rebel bases, hangers, OR a squadmate shown on the map with an icon so you know if it's safe enough or not. Also, don't let people spawn in on someone within ___ feet of the enemy. It's not fair to take someone out just to have their squadmate spawn in facing you.

Put the ships in a hanger to be taken out as normal, not just finding perk symbols out in the wild. Give us a battle line, like the video said. Put us on sides, not just thrown into chaos.
These are things they can do and it will save this thing. Maybe they will? If so, I'll buy. There's just no point in pre-ordering to find out. Really, there isn't much point in pre-ordering a downloaded game anyway.

There's still hope.

Yeah we need a more high tech map than what we have, something similar to bf4. I feel like I'm playing Goldeneye on N64. I get it they want it as a throwback to the original Battlefronts but I agree I would like for some more tactical gameplay.

It's not even the old Battlefronts, they had the spawning right.

There are no classes like the old battlefronts. It's more like Call of Duty: Star Wars Sell Out Edition.
