Damage done and horrible "servers"

Despite EA shutting down the microtranactions, the credit card warriors already bought their advantage. You'll be hard pressed to find a game without one steamrolling everyone. This game has a good campaign, but it's only a deal if it's on sale. Play multiplayer at your own risk. EA it's pay to win. Also have yet enjoy a lag free game, guess EA is still upset about losing micro transactions and figured this was a good way to get payback. Now I'm getting threats from the blindfan boys, lovely. This game has potential, but with the track record of EA don't hold your breath. These reviews are supposed to give insight to the product as is. Right now this game needs work. I play almost daily and it hurts to see what can be a good game fall short. It's a sad trend that's become standard in the industry. To the blind sheep that sent threats, what's more pathetic? The fact that I wrote a review based on my experience, or the fact that you wasted your time reading then proceeding to threaten me

A great game gone down the drain, but salvageable.

This game has the potential to become as good as the original. Its developers have poured blood, sweat, and tears to try and satisfy what the players want while still appeasing EA's thirst for players' money. But apart from the egregiously unacceptable microtransaction system, the game has some major flaws. It fails to be either a competitive game or a casual game. People who just want to sit back and enjoy playing a night of Star Wars can't because of the advantages other players (who have payed to win) have over them. Likewise the competitive player can't operate to his/her fullest because there is no squad system with which to coordinate maneuverers with friends. Furthermore, you can't pick what map or era you'd like to play on because there is no server browser, so if you want to play a match of Clone Wars you can only hope that the one you've been put in is the one you're looking for. Until all these issues are fixed, I would suggest not spending your money on this game yet.

Visually appealing piece of garbage

Pros: It's visually appealing, but still not amazing. It finally as a "campaign" and "Galactic Conquest."👏 CONS: (Buckle up) 1) COD sized maps. Worse than GTA V load times. 2) MICROTRANSACTIONS or grind for hours through an unintuitive class level system 3) Campaign is trash with an ending so cheesy it seemed like a joke 4) "Galactic Conquest" EA never ceases to amaze when it comes to ruining something that could have easily been outstanding. JUST COPY THE ORIGINALS! 5) EA changed everything good about their first Battleflop, kept what we hated, brought back stuff we hated from the originals, and shamelessly added MT's to a game that shouldn't cost more than $25 6) Constantly stalls out while loading and you'll have to force quit 7) Takes minutes to get to the start menu😆 It's so bad. 8) EA is the Michael Bay of gaming and they never listen to feedback 9) "You hated how slowly you gained credits in the last Battleflop? We made it slower." -Typical EA developer's solution 10) 👎

want to do more damage there's a card for that. want to be harder to kill there's a card for that why try when you can just spend money to be good

too expensive.

looks like they found a way to take the obsurdly monetized systems of madden and fifa ultimate team and applied it to star wars. its not rewarding to play this lottery style progress system. Game looks good, at least.

The only really good thing is the graphics.

The story is okay, arcade mode lacks a lot. Bring back instant action (AI), and galactic conquest because playing online isnt any fun except with friends. Then maybe it'd be worth something. DONT GO WITH THE HYPE LIKE I DID PEOPLE WHO READ THIS BEFORE THEY BUY, THINK IT THROUGH! THIS IS MAINLY AN ONLINE FIRST PERSON SHOOTER AND NOT THE GOOD OLD STAR WARS!

Garbage Updates and Frustratingly Dumb Content

They fixed one or two minor bugs just to have one giant bug where you can't play more than one match without lagging and crashing. It crashed a total of 9 TIMES whithin an hour and a half. After 4 crashes I wondered if was just me, then I invited 3 of my friends to the next couple of matches. Apparently a good chunk of people either crash or disconnect. The only way to progress is to play more than what they would've had you play WITH the microtransactions. Leveling up cards has grinded to a halt by limiting crates and parts by only having either your daily crates or your challenge crates. I'm sick of seeing games where their developers are making halfas##ed games and getting reviewers saying sh#t like "10/10 It has graphics!" Having a visually appealing game does not make it a good game to play. There are more bugs now than when the game first launched. "TOTALLY" worth 60 to 70 dollars.

mehh

its 4hr solo campaign leaves muuuuch to be desired.. multiplayer is ok. some balancing issues but all and all fun...very simplistic considering the money and time invested. heros vs villian is solid. and im stil sour over the cash grab element this game was clearly designed to be vis a vis the loot crate sys

good game, rookie mistakes

Its a good game, visually appealing and a good story. BUT the flying is total ****. Cant evade a tail for the life of you, especially in the campaign. Those ***** can evade circles around your ass, and shoot you at a 90' angle. Could have rated 5 stars, but the dogfighting alone pisses me the ********. EA did the same thing in Battlefield 1 as well. Learn from their mistakes, they did not. EDIT: Originally I gave it 3 stars but I just played the mp and I am extremely let down... just upsetting, really. EA didnt do this franchise any justice other than shame it, so imma just stick with Battlefront 1
