Battlefront II!!!!
« on: April 23, 2005, 01:46 PM »
Due out this fall, it looks like there are some good improvements to an already great game!

Check out the Official Site for some screenshots and news.  They have some shots already of a Tantive IV level, Death Star Level and even some space battles!

Already this game is better than Force Commander!  ;D

I think it's pretty cool that you'll get a chance to use a lightsaber, I wonder if that means that you'll actually be playing as a Jedi.  Something I always thought would be a great addition to the original.

I wish they would have done a little more with the Rebel Commando uniforms.  I truely doubt that just because they were green on Endor that they always wear that kind of Camo.  We don't were jungle camo in the desert?

Yeah, the camo on every planet's a bit much.  With skins being easier to create than ever, I think they could've tweaked things so that the appropriate camo was on the appropriate planet.  Give the rebels some kind of positive in their corner.

The Game info section of the site says you'll be able to wield a lightsaber AND use force powers, so I guess you will get to be a Jedi.  I think this is a good idea since the Jedi are such a large part of the Star Wars universe, but I think it could also be a detriment to the game if EVERYONE on a particular server is playing as a Jedi.  Hopefully, the game developers have thought about this and have made ways for normal troops to compete against Jedi.

Another note is that they're improving the AI, probably the worst feature of the original.

Hey Jesse, did you see anything at C3 about the game?

They had kiosks set up...  Didn't get in to play though.  Lines at the con were hellacious, to say the least.  It's visually impressive, but I wasn't ever a HUGE fan of the original...  It's ok as an MP game but since I'm more a SP fan I was never that into BF that much.   :-\

Without actually playing, I dunno what tweaks they maybe worked in.  AI did suck though and I'd say Rep. Commando was vastly superior to BF even so they have some leaps they can make for sure.  Honestly, I'm sort of surprised on a sequal, especially so soon...

I think it kinda sucks that their making a sequel so soon, I would of happily spent money on an expansion pack.
I hope they release another map to tie in with ROTS being in the cinema.

That's the problem with consoles though, which this game was really pushed for XB over most other systems.  The expansion pack idea would've fixed this without having the buyer necessarilly paying $50 or so for a "new" game.  But to market it to who its intended for they pushed a sequal...  Not that an expasnion would have necessarilly been cheap though, of course.

I'm wondering what the popularity of a second one will be.  If it'll really draw people in a lot or what.   :-\

I think it will dol fairly well when it comes to sales.  BF1 was one of the most successful games LA has had, sale wise and BF2 has a lot of fixes and improvements that many people who played the game wanted (ie Jedi and Death Star Levels to name but two).

Couple that with it being made for PC, PS2 and X-Box....I think this game will also do quite well.

I wonder if they'll have a figure for this one if you preorder it like BF1.

If they do, I hope it's a damm sight better than the last we got, I'd just wish Hasbro would release a set of figures from BF1 with the right weapons.
