    I've wondered if I should buy Battlefront II but I'm not sure so I will ask Razer insider if I should or not!

    I usually don't like pressing links to other sites. Maybe next time you can use the poll option on insiders. I would have voted yes.

    If you’re okay with micro transactions, seems a lot of poeple complaining it. Otherwise it’s nice game, tried Beta once.

    It's great so far. Lots of new stuff, and insane graphics. The loot boxes are lame but just don't spend any extra money on anything. It has free DLC instead of a $60 Season Pass so that's basically the trade off of having microtransactions. Also don't get the Deluxe version as it has barely anything in it different and it definitely not worth $20.

    If anyone is on the fence about it get 1 month of Origin Access for $5 and you get a 10 hour trial of Battlefront 2 and tons of other games.

    ^ I've heard some people say that if you dont have the money the spend, it'll take a long time to unlock specific items that help in the game.

    Otherwise, I'd still look forward to at least buying the game. The original battlefront on PS 2 was my favorite! I was hooked on that game forever! If I purchase now it'll be for PC.

    No, because they use anti-consumer gambling practices.

    4528 Hours or 2100$.

    And Belgium gambling regulators are investigation this game for gambling practices.

    THis problay tells you everything on why you shouldn't buy this game.

    And then there is also that: https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWarsBa...ooking_into_changing/?st=ja1miuz4&sh=738ada20

    That's another reason I don't like trying new games. They're always trying to make you spend money on the micro transactions. In my day you actually had to play the game to get extra content.
    Oh yeah, I had the same game. For its time it was revolutionary. I still break it out from time to time to play.

    Hell no EA needs to learn some respect for it's customers & that will never happen as long as we keep letting them get away with these kinds of scams $2,100 or 4528 hours to get all the content of a game already purchased at full retail price that's not an insult it's a slap in the face.

    As long as EA keeps trying to fleece there customers we need to stay away no matter how good the game is. Remember DiCE was firmly opposed to nickel & dime dlc till EA bought them. If I don't stop ranting about how evil EA is now I never will so I will just link to Penny-Arcade as they said it best.

    But EA isn’t Dell;) I’m their regular costumer in FIFA series most licensed football games...(for you soccer right?) games. The technology that they put behind it is incredible. On my origin account I have only two games kinds, Battlefield and FIFA series.

    And I remember saying that in another thread not to long ago! That's to bad when you see a franchise that does so well for themselves get to flippin greedy.

    As a major Westwood fan since 1992's Dune II that one hurt. EA loves to buy great developers just to destroy them.
    Remember Origin, Bullfrog, Maxis, Westwood, etc... & never forget what EA dose...

    You know this is sounding more depressing the more you guys post..lol

    I really haven't been up-to-date on the gaming scene with reviews and what not, but you guys are really opening up my eyes to at least do more research before buying any game out there or the latest and greatest on the shelf.

    It's not Dell to me, its Alienware..... Even though they really are the same.
    Yeah, soccer. The name football is used to describe the American version of Rugby with pads. :big_grin_:
    They had the right mix going until Red Alert 3, after that it went all down hill. I can't even count the number of hours I spent playing generals.
    Westwoods versions of the games are the ones that I originally started playing. The first game manuals I ever bought were related to command and conquer. Even Dune 2. What attracted me to that game was because I've read all the novels. Even the ones written by Frank Herbert's son.
    I wouldn't call it depressing, I'd call it chit chat.
    That's why I come onto Insiders, to keep track of the latest and greatest in the gaming world.

    No and the reason I'm saying is not new. EA is not the best company to put it politely and their business practices and direction for their games are not entirely consumer friendly imo. Now on battlefront 2 don't buy it almost exclusively because of the pay to win micro-transaction system. Levelcap broke down the system in his review I'd suggest watching it he sums up that despite the dev's adjustment the card micro-transactions system is clearly pay to win you spend $90 to max out your character or play hundreds of hours which is not balanced right especially since the cards are straight upgrades with no side effects. The single player is underwhelming from what I've seen with the multiplayer content while better and there's more I just can't get hyped cause of the micro-transactions and the fact that all EA multiplayer games have a similar feel if that makes sense. I can go on about this but I'm sure you get my point.
