"The biggest issue here is lack of content, for the price of a full game you're not getting the value out of the game. Sure it's got some fun online action, but this becomes stale very quickly having to play on the same maps over and over again."
"It feels like a Battlefield re-skin with some poorly designed heroes thrown into the mix."

So in conclusion, overpriced, low content, feels like Battlefield.

I feel bad for those who will pay 120$ for the Ultimate Edition.

People need to be smart and know what they are paying for before they shell out money for it.

Majin-vegeta1071d ago

Exactly.Gonna wait for the full experience next year.

dirkdady1071d ago (Edited 1071d ago )

Someone or should I say some site is going to get blacklisted by EA. Don't believe review embargoes up yet but better to wait to read reviews from the big reputable sites tomorrow.

H2OAcidic1071d ago

dikdady, not really. I don't think the embargo will follow those who played via EA Access. So EA will not do anything to those with reviews via EA Access since it was the full game.

dirkdady1070d ago

H2o if that's the case I wouldn't trust a review that was written based off of 10hrs of play for a multiplayer title. That's not even enough time to level up to unlock some of the more impactful elements of the game better cards, weapons and abilities.

JasonKCK1070d ago (Edited 1070d ago )

Not sure if those big sites are all that reputable. I'll take gamers over the media any day of the week.

idk, i am not paying more than 60$ for it but i played ove 30 hours on the beta and loved every second and want more!

OpieWinston1071d ago

Well this is one of those games that it's better to just wait for the sequel when they include all the features Battlefront 2 had.


Galactic Conquest
Instant Action
Mass Assortment of vehicles(There were 37 useable)
Space Battles
32vs32 PvP

I usually buy games to support them but after the beta and EA Access I can say that I'm either waiting for the Complete Edition OR just waiting for the sequel in 2-3 years. Where they add the features the game needs.

Hoffmann1071d ago

EA - Its in the Game!

Gamers: No, its not.

Chaosdreams1071d ago

Lol, I almost forgot that slogan of there's...damn now it's just sadly cruel.

Heyxyz1071d ago

Yeah, sadly those words confirm what I didn't want this game to be...I loved BF1 and 2, but I'll wait a little while on this.

OB1Biker1071d ago

So are you going to comment and tell people 'to be smart' in every average or low scored review for this game even if you don't seem 'interested'?
I just can't wait for this game and I do know it many hours of great fun even for the standard edition,

DarkOcelet1071d ago

So because i criticize the game and want it to be better and don't want the Devs to become greedy and sell us small content means i am not interested?

I so wanted to get this game but their 50$ season pass and no campaign made it impossible for me.

WellyUK1071d ago

It's a DICE game if it had a campaign it would be crap... Therefore it's not needed. The game does seem to have a lack of content but if you enjoy the game and will play it a lot does it matter? People WILL buy this and enjoy it. People brought BF3 and BF4 also brought premium so people will get the pass for this.

Also does the fact that because BF3 and BF4 had a campaign make a season pass worth 50$? as I don't remember people complaining half as much when premium was done for those games.

OB1Biker1071d ago (Edited 1071d ago )

'So because i criticize the game and want it to be better and don't want the Devs to become greedy and sell us small content means i am not interested? '
No that has nothing to do with it. You claimed a few times it made it 'impossible' for you to get this game (whatever that means) so you ve been saying your not interested in buying the game, I m not guessing anything.
I just think you made your point clear enough in many previews and such so I was asking if you d keep going on. Your comment seems fair enough but I never understand why gamers keep going on and on in comments about games they supposedly dont want. Many games I dont like for whatever reason and I just move on instead of wasting my time on and on in the comments. You got to admit if many gamers think as you do, many also loved the Beta and will have a blast with this game so if its about telling people what they should like or not like (or not buy) that s kind of annoying.
Respectfully, happy gaming.

DarkOcelet1071d ago

I wanted to buy this game my friend by the problem is simple, it doesnt have half the content of Battlefront 2 had at launch.

And they want to charge 110$ for the full experience?

If that is not greed, then i dont know what is.

ShinMaster1071d ago

Ok we get it, OB1Biker, you love Star Wars...

-Foxtrot1071d ago (Edited 1071d ago )

Hope more sites are honest about the score.

We need to show EA that they've ruined Battlefront and this kind of shit shouldn't be allowed.

It's lacking so much content that it's last instalment had over 10 years ago....10 YEARS, come on.

Even the generic set up the multiplayer has now, Battlefront II had such a great structure, why ruin that.

DarkOcelet1071d ago

I doubt anyone will mention how small and boring the content is.

Very few website did that with Evolve, do you think this will be any different?

I am expecting an 8 or a 9 from IGN.

garrettbobbyferguson1070d ago (Edited 1070d ago )

"Why ruin that"

I'm honestly hoping sometime soon the most recent build of Battlefront 3 will leak. Once it does and people get their hand son it, we'll finally have the sequel the series deserves.

@Dark Ocelet

They gave it a 7

jackwei221071d ago

But the excuse will be :- "But who cares it is star wars"

H2OAcidic1071d ago (Edited 1071d ago )

Hit reply on the wrong post. >.<

DarkOcelet1071d ago

Happens to me, don't worry about it :D

DivineAssault 1071d ago (Edited 1071d ago )

Thats EA for you.. Dice are great devs but EA is behind them cracking that whip.. DLC and the season pass??? Nope! Maybe if a GOTY or a complete edition releases for a decent price..

@ Ocelet, your right but i mean a version with all the content they want you to pay for..

DarkOcelet1071d ago

I doubt Battlefront will win a GOTY.

affrogamer1071d ago

im NEVER touching this game just cuz of the $50 DLC. FOH!

Rookie_Monster1071d ago (Edited 1071d ago )

This game seems like a 7 game when it is all said and done. Oh well, waiting for it to drop to $20 before buying it on Steam now.

Edit below: you are correct, it is on EA origin. Well, waiting for the digital copy to be $20 then.

FlameBaitGod1071d ago

Its probably not gonna be on steam for a while, its EA so its on their origin platform.

Dynasty20211071d ago

A SALE on Origin??

Hahaha, don't make me laugh.

"Was £59.99. Now £59.89"

Rookie_Monster1071d ago

Well then, I just wait for the inevitable EA Access freebie in 6 months then. LoL

pandehz1071d ago (Edited 1071d ago )

I called it.

Its gonna be mild fun for a bit till the movie releases and then bam gone. I am gonna buy it when its bam. 10 bucks hopefully

Clown_Syndr0me1071d ago

From my 10 hours with it I'd rate it about the same.
