Yeah what Jesse said... no Single Player/Campaign mode outside of a few random tutorials, which forces you to play online. Which isn't SO bad, but then you realize the game modes are all essentially the same, and there are only 4 maps included with the regular game (5 if you have the free Jakku DLC).
And yeah, all of the season pass material, with the extra maps and characters, will cost a total of $50... that's an entire game right there!
The game is apparently hemorrhaging players who are going back to Fallout, Halo, Destiny, CoD... games that offer a lot more variety than just being able to play as a Rebel or a Stormtrooper. The lack of Prequel Content ends up hurting this game more than anything, IMO, as at least that would have added 2 extra sides to play as, and offered a few more maps. Like Walker Assault... how cool would it be to play opposite of the OT version in the game and have Battle Droids trying to stop AT-TEs on Geonosis or Kashyyyk?
And the latest update basically neutered every weapon in the game. I played for about 30 minutes last night. Boba Fett is now worthless as a character since he doesn't have any weapons that heat seek players (Han and Leia still do) and the card weapons (grenades, snipers, etc.) have pretty much been rendered worthless. Meaning you basically have to be at point blank range to kill another player, and even that is a crap shoot because the blasters aren't as powerful.
My point is, good graphics don't really matter if the game isn't good or doesn't have any replay factor.
