I've played Star Wars Battlefront and you haven't. Here's what I found out

Firstly, it's almost arcadey, with quick weapons, abilities, power ups and movement all designed to keep you running and shooting. Despite the assumptions it would just play like a reskinned version of Battlefield it really doesn't feel like DICE's shooter at all.

I'm ok with an Arcadey Battlefront. Battlefield 1943 was arcadey and it is my favorite BF game aside from BC2.

How did you feel about BF2 (another good example of Arcadey feel)? I used to play the heck out of that, with the "Desert Combat" mod. Would spend a lot of time flying those jumbo jets, and having other players sortee out of them, lol.

OneAboveAll1252d ago

Well, BF2 was also great fun as well as 2142 and even the original 1942. I think that's the reason I liked them the most. They didn't have all these weapon attachments and hundreds of gadgets. It was simpler times and everything just clicked and work and everything was balanced. So IMO, Star Wars should be a great success.

I love that it feels arcadey, makes it feel more like BF2.

To be honest, I'm surprised how much they succeeded in making it play like the old battlefronts!

It looked more arcadey in that it didn't feel like you have to be "good" to have an effect on the overall fight.

It feels like anybody and all people can find a way to contribute without having to be "pro".

Another good infomative write up.. So far it's getting quite a bit of praise from folks that have had actual hands on experience... And those graphics tho' !!

starchild1252d ago

Yeah, the graphics in that coop demo are the best I've ever seen in a game.


LightofDarkness1252d ago

Wow, hadn't seen that. That's incredible, and at 60FPS, albeit with numerous dips. Horizon and Battlefront are certainly duking it out for most impressive visuals at E3.

Perjoss1252d ago

Found it quite strange how the coop demo looked much better than the Hoth demo, imo.

LightofDarkness1252d ago

@Perjoss: less players, more controllable LOD.

Neixus1252d ago

Coop demo probably looks better due to the fact that it's more details in the sand/rock enviroment contrary to the all white map Hoth.

It looks meh to me gameplay wise,but hoping it plays better when I am immersed

iSuperSaiyanGod1252d ago

All I can do is laugh at this post

ThichQuangDuck1252d ago

When it comes out we shall talk

Thunder_G0d_Bane1252d ago

The game does look meh to me. Definitely not buying it at launch but maybe sometime down the line when it's cheaper.

Halo 5 looks incredible to me and that new warzone mode is everything I wanted in that game outside of the campaign.

Halo 5
Fallout 4
And even black ops 3 looks good co op campaign that is.

mafiahajeri1252d ago (Edited 1252d ago )

No couch co-op in Halo sucks my favorite feature in Hali games.

leogets1252d ago

So battlefront didnt impress u but halo 5 did hahaha ffs the troll is strong in u..

starchild1252d ago

Eh to each their own. Battlefront looks like the kind of multiplayer game that I could actually enjoy sinking some hours into. I'm sure Halo 4 will be good, but I don't know when I'll get an Xbox One.

Dread1252d ago

I was also more impressed with Halo 5 warzone.

It just looks much more refined too me.

regardless, I will be buying both, a DICE starwars game looks like soo much fun.

I thought the gameplay style was a screaming call back to the first two Battlefront's (as you'd expect) mixed with some Timesplitters, this is MUCH better than any nitty gritty realistic take they could have gone for.

I'll be buying this one, split screen co-op yearns for me!
