Grab It argues that the real problem with Battlefront is not a lack of content. Instead it has to do with the idea of "value for money."
I'm really enjoying my time with SWB so far; I played TDM for ages, then found the dogfighting and started enjoying that. Nothing but fun for me.
Maybe I was expecting something as meaty as DICE usually produces with Battlefield. I feel a little let down with the lack of content and cant help but feel content has been cut to feed it back to us via DLC.
Not disagreeing with you, but if it was a matter of the game coming out now or in four months, would you take the hit to play it now. I am not sure myself, but question just popped to mind.
I'm usually a day one adoptor of games. I had to fight really hard against my natural urges to pick it up because I don't want to support the practices of large companies pricing games like this. I'm really hungry to play it, but this time I'm going to sit on the sidelines a bit longer.
I'd much rather take the hit and wait if it meant more content Im having fun with the game but i cant play this in long sessions like a lot of other mp games. The way i see it, if this was the same game except with a different skin nit relsted to star wsrs or a big franchise (or msybe just renamed battlefield with a modern setting) then im sure many would dislike it a lot more. I just feel like it doesnt have enough for me to continue likein many other mp games
Wonder if it will follow the Destiny model and add content and adjustments over time based on player feedback to eventually end up with what people had originally hoped for.
Apparently there's a sequel planned so I'm guessing in about 2 years that's it for this game, I can't see them supporting it after they release a new one.
Well that would be horrid if they also use Destiny's pricing models by forcing players to re-buy the game.
There's definitely not enough variety or content and the game play has its share of issues. For what it is I play for fun and don't take it seriously as a competitive game. Once I level cap at Level 50 I'll put the game down and move on. Not wasting the money on that Season Pass either which is a complete rip off.
Problem is not content vs money It's quality and content vs money. Quality comes first. The worry here is how they're taking stuff out of games and seemingly increasing the prices.
The game doesn't actually lack content, it's just that a lot of the content is only going to be availble through a season pass. That is the problem people have with this game.
No it flat out lacks content. If u compare it to battlefield or the other two big shooters this year. Cod and halo. Battlefront has far less maps, far less weapons, far less unlocks and customization. On top of not having single player. Its a straight rip off. If it didn't have star wars attached to it, but had same gameplay and content. It would be one of the lamest shooters released in many years.
I pre-ordered it with 30% off, got it for $56. For what I paid, it is doing pretty good in the entertaining department. The season pass was a pain for it's price, but i used the 10% off from Sony to save more.
