According Remedy's head of PR Thomas Puha, SW Battlefront is "stunningly good", considering development time on the game. Puha adds that "less is more".
Considering that it took two years to make it is a great acheivement. However it also makes it so much worse that they are charging so much for a game that they knew would not be "content complete" before launch. Saying "less is more" is completely wrong in this context - exactly because EA are charging so much more for the 'complete game', when it is lacking in content.
So many of us complained that the game was missing way too much from the originals. DICE repeatedly told us all not to worry about it. Look at it now. To (mis)quote Family Guy: Something something Battlefront, something something incomplete.
I don't have nay issues with the game. There's lot of game modes a decent amount of content.A good amount of unloackables. Gameplay is simple but fun and graphics are fantastic.
"less is more" lol! oh man.. Well good luck with the series..
I can see an argument for "less is more". I used to play Sega Rally for hours and hours, and that only had 4 short tracks. Properly addictive trying to perfect them though. Thing is less isn't literally more, so it shouldn't really cost as much!
It's gotta be hard with a release date set in stone from the start of development. The release had to coincide with the movie. It's a game to be enjoyed in moderation, when you need a Star Wars fix.
Game IS GOOD! BUT... it has 29,99$ worth of content, not $60.
I kind of agree with Thomas Puha. Given the time needed to develop the game and STILL provided a great game with fantastic multiplayer content, I'm not complaining. The theme is spot on and what is there to know more about Star Wars in a campaign? ....it's Star Wars!
"I’really glad #StarWarsBattlefront is simple and has less modes and stuff. I don’t get into many games anymore since they have so much stuff" Really!? Did he actually say that? SMFH!
what an idiot lol smh
Really Remedy ? Are you serious ?
Fire this guy for say less is more on a video game. A game or even their own.
i hope this doesn't mean we are going to get a short game from them? i'll be pissed
gamers want value not empty full priced games!
Clearly you haven't played it because the value is there. Hell of a lot more fun than COD has been for the past 8 years
True...but value (or at least the way it is commonly used) is pretty subjective. Just like FUN.
Less is more.. unless we're talking about the price tag.
EA are masters plunders around the holidays. They perfected the art of stealing without a gun.
+1 for you as I was laughing out loud.
Less can be more, but the price has got to fit it. You don't see $60 indie games even when they have less content (even though some have more than AAA games). This game needed to be $40-$50 for real value. But, it's EA and that won't happen. Heck they have a $70 deluxe edition that gives you early access to 2 guns (can get it in a normal copy) and 2 emotes. Not worth $10 extra dollars at all. The $50 season pass is them just saying here is all the content we wanted to add to the game, but the movie is coming out before we could add it in. So they won't give us the content for free no no it must be worth almost the full price of another game.
It's ok to not make a content rich game, Just don't charge $60 for it and another $50 for the rest.
This game could have been so much more. It could have been Battlefront 3 but it's not. It's just a shallow FPS that will get repetitive sooner rather than later. Just like Titanfall did. I'm guessing EA are milking it for all it's worth (£50 game + £40 season pass) before it becomes irrelevant. A shame really. The lore, history and universe is there to be exploited to create an amazing game but they settled for a Battlefield clone with a Star Wars make over.
There are valid complaints about the game (season pass price, lack of splitscreen and bots on the main modes), but "Battlefield Clone" is not one of them.
Thomas Puha was the editor-in-chief of finnish gaming magazine called Pelaaja. When i subscribed it they used to hail all the simple and no-skill games, while smacking iron fist on anything that had skill curve or a lot of content to wrap your head around. Plus they let their in house fanboys to review games, which end up being really biased reviews. So of course "less is more" for him.
And this is the mouth behind Quantum Break? I say that because he is their PR, not a actual developer.
