As much as I love BF1942, I must say this game "feels" better.
SWBF feels like WAR. BF1942 doesn't. In SWBF, you get really intense firefights. It was indeed rare in BF1942 that it gets intense(maybe it's just me who can't find a worthy challenge anymore x_x).
Galactic Conquest doesn't feel right at all. The maps are too large. Sure it's realistic but hey, too large is too large.
BFVietnam feels even less like war. For now, the map design of that game sucks. Seriously.
My only playtime with the BF serie is now down to Forgotten Hope and Eve of Destruction.

I would compare SWBF to UT like Kurgan, though to some extent. It would be more a mix of UT and BF. It offers challenging infantry maps, mixes of both and vehicle maps.

The only thing that bothers me about this game is that the only thing that can bring down a vehicle is another vehicle. I also find that Rebels vs Imperials is way off being balanced, the Imperials will start off with 3 at-sts and the Rebels get 2 speeder things that dont stand a chance against an at-st with a pilot in it. When I play as the Rebels I usually find that the only way I can win is to steal an Imperial vehicle.

Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Syzerian-What? Landspeeders are more powerful then an AT-ST. They can strafe and avoid enemy fire while the AT-ST is stuck there. It also has much lower profile giving it an edge against enemy Shock Troopers.

The AT-ST is supposed to have a missile launcher, but like the AAT's missile launcher, was forgotten.

I don't understand why the tank vehicles are just so tough. No tank should take so long to be destroyed.

Actually, if they only had done like in Bf1942 where side and rear armor are weaker then front armor. It would ease the job of the missile troopers and encourage them to sneak around the enemy and ambushing them.

You have no idea how many light tanks I've blown up with a single shot to the rear.

This game has really random damage that hasnt really been thought out. It takes about 10 missiles to destroy a tank when a star fighter can destroy a tank in half a second and a tank takes ages just to destroy a star fighter when star fighters are ment to be fragile. Ive also noticed that snow speeders take almost no damage from the lasers of another snow speeder.
Battlefront is also extremely unoptimised. My computer is capable of running games like BF 1942 and Far Cry with all graphics settings on max but the yavin and endor maps even on minimum settings are just unplayable.

1-It has random damage, true, but I've never been able to destroy a tank in a few seconds with a starfighter.
Also, I think that even with FF on, you do less damage to friendlies.

2-I get no problem at all. My FPS is ok on both maps. Nothing weird at all.

the problem from the snowspeeder is that its lasers do next to no damage. i've made strafing runs on spawn points only to have troopers get knocked down, get back up, and shoot me down. shooting an atst while in a snowspeeder is like throwing rocks at a carrier (without an army of ewoks to help)

and the droid starfighter can take out a republic tank in one pass. the tie fighter can take out a combat speeder in one pass. the jedi starfighter does decent damage against the AAT, and the only redeeming value of the xwing is that it has missiles. it's lasers suck.

The X-Wing torpedoes are just as useless as its blasters. The X-Wing was so much better in the movies.

I don't understand why the Snowspeeder's blasters are so worthless. They should be able to take down an AT-ST, come on.

Yeah, I agree. And let's remove links to reviews don't give SWBF a full 100% out of 100%! ..er, not...

If someone thought SWBF wasn't good, too bad. SWBF has its good sides. However, you must be able to hear that without getting angry.

SWBF is simply too simplified. There's no apparent reward for employing tactics; it's just "see-'em and shoot-'em". Sad.

Yeah, they should. If they can't, I don't see why not. In Galactic Conquest the AT-ST has been strenghtened, but still T-47 speeders can take it down.

Nope. Airspeeders (they're not only used in polar wastes) are simply tugs with blaster cannons. That's what the tow cable really is for -for towing things. I mean, doesn't the name "tow cable" ring a bell to you?

The blasters are there for self-defense. Plain and simple. They're to take down threats to the trading facility the speeder is assigned to, yes, but no source says they're built especially to defend infantry.

There's a SW universe outside of the movies.

If you don't like it, don't play it

I played SW:Battlefront before I bought it, and chose to buy it *because* it was simplified. I like complex games like Battlefield: 1942, but not all the time.

It's unfortunate you picked up the game thinking it would be something else, but it is fun for me and I like it.

Perhaps, like someone else said, reviewers should NOT have compared it to Battlefield:1942, but instead to Unreal Tournament or Quake... it's much more fast-paced run 'n gun than Battlefield is. This is why people were disappointed - they wanted Battlefield: 1942 in space, and instead got Unreal Tournament in Star Wars.

To be honest, I was basing that on what I know of the game, and from what I've seen from people playing it. I've studied it pretty extensively, though.

I will play it as soon as I can, though.

As for reviewers comparing it to BF1942: They most likely did because people wanted to know what it was like compared to BF1942. You're completely right that there should be diversity in games, though. I don't like CS, but I respect that people want simple games like that. On the other hand, while I like complicated games, I don't like many of those modern jet sims where you have to read the manual for 30 minutes to even take off . And I actually liked The Phantom Menace, simple as it was.

pesonally, I think waxslinger should be banned from the swbattlefront section of the lucasforums. he has had 6 posts here, and not a single one of them was constructive. If he doesnt like the game so much, he should find a different place to hang out.
