I was so dissapointed in Battle front 1.

I got around to toying with it finally.

The stupid Over heating of the lasers, the More than one shot to kill tie fighters. the Aiming system that is totally off kilter. I line it up with the little dot and it doesn't look like i'm hitting anything, unless I off kilter it a little, and THEN I see the sparks showing that it is hitting.

The ground levels are a little nicer to play.

Awesome visuals, not a very well designed game IMHO. Sigh. STar wars desrves better...

Anyone in on the beta?

I played around with it a few hours ago.

I'm liking what I'm playing, though I enjoyed the first Battlefront much more than most did so what do I know...

I'm not liking the cards system that seems to be in a bunch of games now to give it longevity. Even WWE has started implementing it into their career modes.

The air combat has been completed overhauled and even though I'm consistently doing a lot better than everyone else on my team, I still don't really like the controls. Guess they'll just grow on me.

Hero characters I'm not good enough on the ground to play around and tell you how they feel but they seem to consistently kick everyones ass when they show up, as they should. And I don't think Kylo is available in the beta, just Boba Fett and Darth Maul for the villains and Han and Rey for the heroes.

Didn't preorder so I won't get into the beta until the weekend when it goes live for everyone

Ah, lemme know what you think when you get around to it.

Finally got to play as Rey; forgot to look at her moves first so I made a ton of terrible mistakes. But if she's any indicator to go by the lightsaber handling feels different this time around. Controls are the same, but it swings with a bit more weight to it. It's not a bad change, just will take some getting used to.

I wish they included more than Naboo for the beta, but thats how it goes i guess.

Oh, I should also mention that the droid army has a HUGE advantage in that because they're so slim, sniping them is a royal pain in the ass.

I managed to get a game in on friday but when I went to go try it again, the game was unresponsive even after restarts and a reinstall, so I uninstalled it. I had fun for the time that was played though, didnt check out any of the space battles cause after seeing those on live streams, they look like they can give you a bit of motion sickness.

Tried the beta a little bit today.
It's fun.
A definite improvement over the first one. Playing as the Battle Droids is always a treat.
But I think I'll stick with the original on my PS2.

I never got used to the new controls in the few times I played it. It has more control for tight turns and targeting but it loses a sense of stability. Motion sickness wasn't an issue for me, but I play VR on an almost daily basis so that's probably washed away any I may have had.

I was a little surprised/miffed that these guys weren't available to play as...

Hopefully they'll be in some DLC or something.

Cuz I mean, really?

Well, been playing it nonstop since Tuesday. I love it. But I'm easy on games, so.. don't trust me, I guess.

I've been following the drama of the lootboxes and it's been glorious, I never would've thought that this whole thing would've ended up with Bob Iger calling EA and affecting their stock so much
