Thumbs up

When it comes to SWBF2 I think it's OPEN SEASON for complaints, because the game is still in beta.

Guess what Pandemic did? They opened up the beta to the public. Which means WE GET TO CRITICIZE IT! They want us to question it, point out faults, flaws, problems, bugs, etc.

So no, we should NOT be "satisfied with what we get." Pandemic themselves don't want us to do that! Otherwise they would have just kept it an internal closed beta and ignored us.

So telling the whiners to shut up is undoing what the company is trying to do, which is solicite information from us to improve their product for us, because we're their target audience!

Is there something to be said for constructive criticism? Sure. But we need not be quiet about our complaints! And if some people are a little more aggressive, BUT IF THEY ARE RIGHT, why shoot the messenger?

They're not done yet!

The other thing is, in this beta, some things may be different than the final game. So if something is in there you like, be ware, because they might change it before the final version!

I think it has improved in many areas, gotten worse in a few areas, and not changed (where it should have) in several more. So I hope they continue extensive work on it until it comes out, and continue to work on it through patches thereafter (as I'm sure they won't get everything done by that Nov1st rush date).

You're the s
Huh?

That's funny, I thank LucasArts and their third party developers everytime I create a website about a game they've created, without which the site would be nothing! (except for Boot Camp, which is done in character)

Next thing you know we'll be called ungrateful for criticizing problems in a beta (which is the JOB of beta testers anyway!). It doesn't make sense!

Anyway, you make a good point, since this is not a COMPLIMENTS FORUM forum (LucasArts and Pandemic don't even have anything like that), you need not worry about only expressing positive opinions about their work. We're a fan site, we wouldn't exist if we weren't fans. But that doesn't mean we have to keep our mouths shut about these things, even if they sound negative. But go ahead and start your own forum if you want, and put only compliments in it, if you wish. But, and not to ramble here, but why bother testing a game or creating patches at all? If everybody just accepts it in the first version, then there's no reason to solicite feedback or try to improve anything. Think about it...

Yesterday, I got to play the PS2 demo for SWBF2.....Utapau was kinda fun...even though I played for three and a half minutes out of eight. The Space Teaser was okay...IT'S ONLY THREE MINUTES!

I'm sure they can't even hear the complaints over the sound of the money piling up in their bank accounts

I heard there is a code that both levels are playable WITHOUT the TIME LIMIT.

I didn't mean this concernig you personally, but i think the point of the beta is to be able to criticize the gameplay, the graphics, etc, not the acurracy of its content. As I have said before, as long as its really fun (which it most certainly is) why does it matter if Commander Bacara is a heavy trooper? It doesn't make it less and he definately is cool!
I don't doubt that you and many other people compliment them. But there should still be a compliment (sticky) thread/forum.

Because it's not fun if the Devs keep crapping on the details.

This is Star Wars, not some random title.
There are rules and guidelines most Star Wars fans expect be followed.

That's why.

yeah im sure that even 1 seconde they are hearing ''CLIIINGGG'' that means that they are winning money and oover ''CLIIINGGG'' more money, i think that the only ting that they want is winning and winning money (and dont says that these commentaries are from a 13 boy so i am a 13)

the current poll on lucasarts.com may help show the developers that Star Wars games MUST follow Star Wars in some way


I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that I don't know the answer.

*Yawn*

This is Star Wars, the name is an instant money maker. You want the best, try Westwood (before they were eaten alive by EA), or Epic, or ID. You know, people who DEPEND on the strength of their name being unsullied or they'd be down the pan.

You might as well argue "OMFG! There's bad things happening in the world today".


I am the definition of your defeat.
