The force is weak in these people.

1.1

@Jazumin Huge triple A game goes 50% price down just one month after release. Not to mention how bad that game is. No wonder people bought/downloaded it.

Lol! “These people” are the people that has more important things to care about in life than boycotting a video game because they don’t like the publisher.

1.3

@Viktorx2001 Way to miss the point. It’s not about disliking the publisher, it’s about what they have done with the game.

Nice to see Adventures of Mana sneak back into the Vita chart. Been a decent price in the sale for £3.99 and so I got it and it’s rather fine. Looking forward to the Secret of Mana remake.

Battlefront II eh? goes to show even the haters have a price haha

so much for that backlash…..

I am sure ea is laughing right now.They are probably getting ready to re introduce micro transactions

4.1

I can only do so much. I guess not buying a single game from EA so far this gen just isn’t enough lol. Sheep will always be sheep.

4.2

The Sheep in this case are the people who haven’t played the game, yet comment on how awful EA is and that we should boycott it. Please ignore these fluffy clouds and try the game! :)

Doesen’t look like there is much interrest for exclusives.

I just hate how they offered new content for free, but I am yet to actually see any of it included in the map rotations.

I can’t even choose which map to opt for like I could in the last game, and next to no proper customisation choices for Arcade mode, not even offline Starfighters.

When it first released, Crait (the new map) was rotated in VERY often. Now it pretty much comes up (for me) as often as the rest of the maps. I may be mistaken but I think it always comes up after Maz’s Castle.

Finn is also used very often. I always see him being played on every map he is available on (not sure if he can be picked on every map).

Loot box stuff aside, battlefront 2 is great fun and the Starfighter mode is 10/10 imo

How does GTA V stay high in this list every month? Surely after all these sales (plus disc sales) there can’t be many people left who don’t have it

Well, people buy PS4’s, don’t they?

Yup, apparently Sony sold 5.9 million PS4’s over the holidays (Polygon.com) so theres a ton of new customers right there!

Well, it does have a campaign this time around, that should count for something. I’ll pick it up for that at some point.

I’m sure the Last Jedi had something to do with it, too.

Well people need to learn the hard way. But this time bit cheaper.

That’s a shame. I really wish people would stop giving EA and Disney money. Both are vile businesses.

This game is GREAT! Forget the EA haters (most of whom haven’t even played the game). I agree they made some hideous decisions at the start but they have removed the paid crates element and fixed the crippling lag in the first fortnight. The Galactic Assault now has 12 maps (incrudling Crait from The Last Jedi), most of which are epic and all are beautiful!

Hoth – OUTPOST DELTA

Takodama – MAZ’S CASTLE

Crait – ABANDONED REBEL OUTPOST

Kashyyk – KACHIRHO BEACH

Death Star II – COMMAND SECTOR NORTH

Jakku – THE GRAVEYARD

Endor – RESEARCH STATION 9

Kamino – CLONING FACILITY

Tatooine – MOS EISLEY

Starkiller Base – COMMAND CENTER

Yavin 4 – THE GREAT TEMPLE

Naboo – THEED

Also the Starfighter Assault games are really superb with loads of objectives and tunnels to fly through… combined with stunning settings. This is most beautiful game I have ever played (even better than Battlefield 1). Give it a try! :)

@stellababy With the amount of evidence comming out from people who disacted the game I just can’t believe there are people who claim “haters” are responsible for creating this whole situation.

You can like the game all you want, but when EA and Dice lied about cosmetics, lied about whole matchmaking system(which makes you play against easier players who don’t have any high unlocks, after few wins you are matchmaked with people who paid for their consumable “cards”), lied about campaign, I can keep going… anyway don’t call people “haters” when the real problem in this whole situation is EA.

Game looks amazing and I am sure of it, but what else? Game is still bugged for many people, P2W system is horrible, leveling system is just garbage. If you look what’s good and what’s bad… you will understand what’s going on here. Btw… Battlefront 1 had different costumes for characters… EA claimed it would be problem to put different costumes in Battlefront 2… look at the facts.

@Nolidior88 – Have you played the game?

12.3

@stellababy Yes, I have played. I have not bought the game, but I had a chance to play it for 2 hours when my friend got it as a gift. It was really bad experience for me. You can call me “hater” if you want, but I have at least read what BF2 was suppose to become. Lies are lies, doesn’t change the fact game was bad.

Btw. we have encountered so many bugs, it made our gameplay feel like running on broken glass.

I’ll wait until it’s somewhere under £20 and then play it for the single-player. Shame EA seems to have no interest in single-player Star Wars games though. Even just port the two Knights Of The Old Republic games over to PS4 with graphics/performance improvements (but otherwise unchanged) and that would be better than only having multiplayer Star Wars games. It makes no sense that KOTOR can be played on modern smartphones and tablets, but not modern consoles when it was a console series in the first place.
