NFT: Star Wars: Battlefront 2 video game

NYGmen58 : 12/13/2017 10:04 pm
I am not an avid gamer but I do own an XBOX One and am a huge Star Wars fan so wanted some recommendations on this game.

I did not buy the first battlefront game because it did not have a single-player campaign and was purely an online multiplayer game. While I enjoy playing on Xbox live from time to time, I don't have enough time or interest in purely a multiplayer game.

However, I understand the new Battlefront 2 has an expansive campaign where you can play various missions in multiple different star wars eras, which sounds exciting (and from the previews looks incredible).

With that said, I was thinking of getting the game but wanted to get some advice form those who have played it. Is it worth getting the game just for the campaign, or is the appeal of the game still mostly for online play?
I wouldn't say it's an expansive campaign.

But it is pretty good. The voice acting and the writing is damn near cinematic quality. It's not very long.

Visually the game is stunning, and it's more diverse than battlefront 1 now that you can choose space battles for online play.

Buy it on sale, it's fun. Not worth full price at this stage simply because the game is heavily tilted toward players who spent a lot of money on loot boxes early on.

Battlefront 2 is just okay, nothing great

All the initial visuals and battle play is all great fun but it quickly feels repetitive and boring across all modes. They've also totally ruined their player/character upgrading system by making it a convoluted mess. I feel like I enjoyed last year's version a lot more last year, despite its own faults.

I'm a huge Star Wars fan and long for the days of Knights of the Old Republic or even The Force Unleashed. The fact that there aren't any open world-style Star Wars games for modern consoles is so disappointing- I can't imagine the money even with just one one strong title.

its ok... i loved the first battlefront but this one is lacking in the

EA is just a hard company to give money to and the system they implemented made it easy to pass.
Hopefully the game bombs

and this micro transactions loot box garbage gets scaled back.
