Im starting to think outlets are rating the game lower just for the sake of rating it lower and going with the trend. EA does deserve to hurt and burn but its hard to trust these reviews right now.

Read the review, Game Informer still thinks it is a good game, but the microtransaction and the lackluster campaign is the culprit. I heard the campaign is just 4 hours long! What a waste man. They manage to make this worst than the first one that had less content.

If you read the review...youll get it.

First realize that MP is the MAIN component of the a pay to win progression tied with it is bound to be a problem.

I’m getting tired of agendas being pushed in reviews. People saying it’s a good game but micro transactions. I’m going to buy this and never buy any micro transactions. Nor do I care to unlock everything in the game. I’m going to beat the campaign and then just play the mp in bursts between other games.

I don’t believe not buying the game is the answer. If you want to play it then play it. If you want to buy micro transactions then buy them. Don’t let people tell you what to do with your money just because they’re upset about the implementation of a model in a game.

Like I said I’m not spending any money on loot boxes. That’s how I’ll vote against them but if someone decides to buy them so be it.

Like EA gives a crap about your vote, they already have your money, you can burn the game for all they care.

They’d um have my money even if loot boxes didn’t exist if I’m interested in a game I’ll buy it. I’m interested in this one.

I dont think you get it.
If this is successfull it will encourage other devs to do the same...lots of money.
If they do the far will they go?
It may come to a point where you get owned unless you pay more...they can and will take it in that direction.

So yes it will affect you. And it does affect you know if you go against another player just as skilled but has that extra upgrade that they paid for that you a standoff you die and he wins.

It doesn't bother me in the least, quite honestly.

EatCrow391d ago


It will. Unless it gets fixed...which at least in your case I really really hope you get to experience pay to win models affect your gaming experience.

Good all reviewers should mention the microtransactions
