Searched and didn't see anything dedicated to "Star Wars: Battlefront II," so, now that we're about three hours from release, thought I'd get the ball rolling. Post your reviews and drooling here.

i hope them putting Jedi and sith in it dosn't unbalance the gameplay. I liked number one but having players running around with the power to chop the regular soldiers in two and deflect gunshots might take all the fun out of playing as footsoldiers :( we'll see tommorow though

i'll buy it eventually, not right away as money's a issue at this time, really looking forward to playing as a jedi in the huge enviroments, plus the space battles

I hope that flying controls got better they really sucked in the first game to the extent that I purposly didnt fly any of the ships

ya, they were quite crap-tacular, especially the land speeder on the endor level, the turning radius on it was horrid

I loved the 1st one. Waiting for the price drop on this one before I buy it.

I got it yesterday, I love it. My friend was happy to see that we could finally have space battles, which was what bummed us out about the first one. Kind of seems pointless to even keep the first game, this has all the same levels, but better.

It's not an imbalance. And they're not around the entire time. Being a Jedi does make things a bit easier (especially the amazing jumping) but it's not like you're invincible. And if Darth Maul is around one of your spawn points, don't choose to regenerate there.

That was my biggest fear as well. The controls for flying vehicles in the first game were horrid and with entire levels dedicated to space battles, those controls would be inexcusable. Luckily I've talked to some people who have played the demo and they say the controls are definitely improved for flying vehicles in this one.

Yeah, this game will own my soul next weekend if I get done with Call of Cthulhu.

I'm picking this and Ep 3 up on Friday for Xbox.

I'm going to take a break from Cthulhu for a bit. I just wrapped up X-Men Legends II, and I'll probably bounce between SW BFII and Battefield 2 for a while.

I picked it up for my girlfriend just a little bit ago. She told me I could open it and play it now but I told her I'd wait to play with her when she gets home from work. Still its pretty tempting.

thats her test. if you keep it closed and wait for her, she'll give you oral. but who needs oral when you have your xbox? open that shit up, bitch!

I'm excited about this one. I hope it has less lag issues than the first. Such a great game to play online, but battles like Hoth could turn into framerate hell.

Picked it up at Circuit City for $49 and got a giftcard for $10, which means Ep 3's DVD will only cost $5 ;)

Played it some last night, pretty fun!

Man, I've been trying that and it's still a pain in the ass. And yet I still can't wait to play it some more. Thank god I'm behind on Lost and there's nothing else on Wednesdays. :D

Cth
11-02-2005, 08:12 AM
Kashykk was easy. The tank does help a lot.

Now I'm having to figure out what I'm supposed to do with Obi Wan's chapter at the end.

At that point I decided to play online :)

I just finished up the Order 66 stage.

I got lucky when it came time to assassinate the Queen of Naboo.

The courtyard was full of Jedis and I took potshots from the overlook. Jumped down onto the courtyard, and ended up in an enclosure built around a tree.

The Jedi couldn't touch me, and I was free to take shots at the Queen who was running around.

Anyways, onto Mustafar..

My friends and I played 4 player split screen the day I got it, beat the 501st Trooper Regiment thing the same night.

Still, I thought it was pretty frickin' awesome. I love the idea that the clones sort of felt remorse for killing the Jedi... and I love when he mentions after the Empire is formed, and clones started getting replaced with regular people... "We never really got used to the new guys." :D

Yup, I got to throw rocks at some troopers while the other team killed me left and right.

I'm on the next to last mission now.

I only played it for about 20 minutes at Best Buy, but I thought it was much better. Being a Jedi is a blast. I'll have to pick this up soon.
