terrible graphics, too much clutter (PS2 version)
 
I have never had the fever for a game release until BF2....I've been playing BF1 contantly for almost a year now...in a clan, participate in battles, etc etc, log a lot of hours playing BF1 because it's fun to play...so fun that I don't mind playing the same levels over and over again for a YEAR.

Anyway, picked up BF2 at 12:04 AM....came home, started playing...went through training, went online, played a few levels.

I'm horribly let down so far. I dont know how the graphics are done...but on every level, so SOOO hard to see anything...and there's WAY too much clutter on the screen from the heads-up info.

I dunno, kinda seems like lucasarts concentrated too much on ADDING things and forgot about making sure they kept what made BF1 so great....playability.

:blast5:

a few more bad things....
 
Not only is the scrolling text of who killed who a dark BLUE that you can BARELY read to begin with (mixes with the background) if someone votes to boot someone....it exactly overlaps that text...making EVERYTHING in that area UNREADABLE!!! Not to mention a big jumble of text that's not only taking up valuable screen space...but as it moves...it distracts you. I saw this dude just keep voting to boot people... terrible...

Also, you can't tell when you hit somebody. The big thick red circle that shows up when you do damage (in SWBF) has turned into a small thin three lines that's the exact same color as the aiming circle!! So, if there is gunfire or explosions in the middle of your screen, you'll NEVER know if you hit somebody.

Also, has anyone been able to add a buddy yet?

LOL! And they didn't even fix the glitch in the Cantina!!! I can't believe it!

Agreed completely.

To be fair, I've been playing it and I'm getting more used to it.

Thing is...it seems as though I had to learn a whole new game...different feel, etc etc.

Why could LA just EXPAND SWBF1 insted of change so many things?

Kurgan 11-06-2005 01:35 PM

Here and I thought the problem was they didn't change much?

It's true lots of little things change, but I guess that's what you get with most sequels. The only thing people really can agree they want changed in a sequel these days it seems is the graphics...

Honestly I think they should have spent more time on the gameplay. SWBF1 had some serious flaws that needed addressing. But oh well. SWBF2 is the game they "meant" to release all along, according to them (shades of Lucas talking about Star Wars!). Honestly after playing the beta and a few hours spent on the full version I am undecided. In some ways its better, in a few ways its worse, but in many more ways it seems like more of the same.

However I have not played every inch of the game yet, I give it a fair chance over the next few months (as I get more time to play).

Agreed,
Better than I expected.

I bought Star Wars Battle Front 2 fo the PC and i love the Game 100%, but why does the Graphics look like 2D.

I thought BF2 were gonna have Graphics like Ultra 3D or something.

BF1 Kashyyk are unbelievable, but BF2 Kashyyk are like 2D and dull.

(PS2 version)
When I played the game it seemed so much different from the original. It had all the same basic things in it but it seemed like they tried to make the graphics "finer". I liked it better when the colors seemed more bold and together. Another thing was the Jedi option isn't as great as I expected (but it is a good thing they don't control the game).

Besides those issues the game is still fun. It took me about 20 minutes to get used to it but now I am really into it. I love the Space battles (I just won my first one )

I will say that split screen co-op on PS2 is FUGLY! Damn, it reminds me of Rainbow six. I suppose it's the cost of upping the detail. In BF1, it was a lot clearer, but now it's grainy.

Stark Rhavyn 11-08-2005 12:52 PM

Have you guys seen the Mos Eisley map on the Xbox version? Compared to BF1, the graphics are terrible. Looks like a PS2 version.
I guess everyone complained too much about the glow-y, dusty look the BF1 graphics were sporting and the developers took all that out. Well now look what we have.

daventry 11-09-2005 01:40 PM

I have the PC Game and on Geonosis when you look at the sky, its like split in two diffrent colours and the top looks like old Graphics.

Redtech 11-10-2005 01:34 PM

Nutty huh? Got it for PC, playing it on PS2. Damn, you can spot the difference. The targeting sight is actually useful on the PC. I can time when grenades re-arm and everything, right down to how much ammo is left in a SHOTGUN clip. Just by looking at the sight.

No fully 3D game can look 2D.

PS2 version was fine with the graphics, but the only thing that did bother me is the way the frigates blow up, I mean couldn't they just have the debris remaining in the battle making it as realistic as it can be?

Redtech 11-11-2005 08:15 AM

Not on a PS2, it'd really funk up levels when the PS2 is pushed enough trying to do the graphics and the bots. Wait for PS3 if you can.

Snafu7 11-11-2005 04:53 PM

I played it on a PS2 at a friends house, and honestly I was disapointed too. Everything was really cluttered(at least on splitscreen, never had that problem with BF1), but other than that, I really didn't take the time to look around and see whether or not the graphics looked alot better, so that didn't make that much of a difference to me.

Of course it looks 2D, its on a 2D screen (unless you bough one of those new 3D LCD screens)

daventry 11-13-2005 11:00 AM

I play the Game on PC.

Sharp wasn't the first to make them, but they are the first company to release affordable (under USA$ 2,000) 3D lcd screens for the home user.

Check it out here: http://www.sharp3d.com/
Here is their game supported list: http://www.sharp3d.com/entertainment/games/list/

one thing I think anyone should avoid is having extremely high expectations for this game :) Ive been pleasantly surprised by some additions, as I wasnt expecting anything at all
