    £50 .. it wasn't that good .. why pay console price for a pc game ? £34 for the basic I could live with .. won't take long to lvl up ..

    Played this on the PS4 and it played well, fun as well but there is no way I am paying full price for a muiltiplayer game.

    Wasn't overly impressed with this game, played for about 3 hrs on PC and just gave up. Graphics looked great but it just felt too much rush/shoot/die repeat, no tactical part to it.

    The only feedback I'd give would be putting a bloody single player campaign in it!!!

    Re: Over 9 million people took part in the Star Wars: Battlefront beta

    £90 for the game (with the DLC that you will inevitably need to keep playing it throughout the year) plus several hundred for a computer or console capable of playing it????

    Pass!

    Re: Over 9 million people took part in the Star Wars: Battlefront beta

    I know i was way underwhelmed... GFX were awesome, SFX were awesome, maps were pretty decent, gameplay was total MEH! Way too shallow, no real 'soul'... won't be getting my money...

    Another Hardline type flop, quite possibly?

    Another Titanfall type super-discount after 6 months? I reckon so.

    The only thing that will sell it is the Star Wars subject matter.

    9 million beta players... 8.5 million that have decided not to buy it.

    I've said it elsewhere, if they expand the scope of the game, team sizes, single player campaign etc, then it might turn out to be worthwhile, but not for £90, or £50... no way

    Re: Over 9 million people took part in the Star Wars: Battlefront beta

    I quite enjoyed it, but I could certainly feel the shelf life in it. I could be wrong but it didn't feel like a game that I would ever get nearly £100 of enjoyment from.

    Eh ? But multiplayer offers way more lifespan than any single player game could. It would make sense to not want to pay it for a single player game with a 12h campaign, but to pay it for dozens, if not hundreds of hours just makes economical sense

    I definitely enjoyed it but I don't think I see myself playing it for that long of a time. Also the spawns are totally bleeped.
