Empire Vs. Republic forces, yay!

So did they get rid of the gunships thinking the Republic had too much of an advantage on Geonosis? Lame. They should just have given the CIS better transports to compensate. Oh well... hopefully we'll get decent mod tools! :P

And the AT-AT is nerfed even further? Yikes.

Well anyway, most of the world will be getting the game soon enough, they'll be servers to play on.

But for the meantime you guys with the game have no excuse. Use a batch file and you can test out everything by yourself, with bots or with a handful of humans by hosting... Check out the server administration thread for details!

I just got the game for Xbox (GAME UK) so I'd be willing to answer some questions as well.

It's miles better than the first game. Although I'm confused why it's Maul on Mustafar- it really pulls you out of an immersive battle!

And yes, I've played the BETA, and while it could be that I'm playing on the Xbox instead of a PC that doesn't fit the specs it really has improved graphical effects. The controls are good on an Xbox pad as well. Although it's better than the beta, it is pretty similar to it.

It looks like it should be. Itīs not a that big effect but looks better than JKA. Well the deflected blasterfire goes in every direction very unlikely you can send it back to your enemy.

Errr... Rebel pilots getting into a Clone Gunship to attack an ISD?

Something isn't ringing true here......

To Rebel_Trooper, I'd like to know if Space Coruscant is in Instant Action? (I have asked this question many times, but it's usually good to have more than one source)

Yes Rebels got the clone Gunship. Well i donīt have a problem with that because why not? They donīt have such transport craft so it isnīt that unlikely that they used old outdated stuff.

And no coruscant Space in Instand action or Mulityplayer. Itīs campaign only

theres no space endor in the game at all, and there is no space mustafar even though its in campaign

the background of the menu sucks its just the same as beta, schematics and blueprints.

hunt mode is funny, spears stay in people:

Official "I have SWBattlefront II" Thread

Those of you who have got the game early somehow, pre-ordered it,
or people who live in the UK and DIDN'T pre-order it from amazon.co.uk (unlike me)
Tell us you have it, what do you think? was it what you expected? What don't you like about it? What you do like?
and show us some screenshots, what vehicles and maps made the final game,
Stuff like that.

I haven't got it and i haven't even played the beta (my PC is just... weird)

The campaign mode is 'nails' at times - even in normal mode (not Elite).

Cant wait for someone to mod this game.

Mustafar is messed, obi vs maul for clone wars and obi vs anakin in galactic civil war. Weird.

I have it, great improvement on the original, still lots of continuity errors though but that was to be expected. I dont like the fact that some things are missing from multiplayer and IA such as maps and stuff, the fact that they could have put the commander from the kamino level in campaign onto geonosis in IA and multiplayer but didnt. Im sure much of this could be fixed with mods but much of the game shouldnt have been rushed, that way it would have needed no modding. I like the new graphics, new models, hero system, new maps, improved AI, great Campaign, and altogether improving on the 1st battlefronts features but also including many new features. Mygeeto kicks ass. The hardest campaign level is Hoth. If you liked the 1st battlefront or star wars in general then this game is for you, the pc version would be the best to buy due to the fact that it can be modded succesfully.

Another little annoyance I have is that the levels/missions are all too fast-paced and frenetic. Slowing it down just a little would have allowed the player to take things in and think about tactics more.

As it is, it's just blast-o-rama.

Wasn't that the whole point of the first game? The Battlefront series isn't that original, and I think the main point of it is for the player to live out the dream of battling in the Star Wars universe, not execute breathtaking tactics. Meh, I don't mind.

Well the clone wars had finished when obi-wan and anakin fought on mustafar

and anakin was never part of the seperatists but part of the empire

I think the gunship is only in the space battles. And you cant land on the droid control ships.
