    • Total waste of money. Story took less then 24hrs to complete, the story was a weak rehash of blow up the DeathStar. Then only 4 ship types to choose from. Pretty looking dross. Wait till it is free or in the bargain basement.

    • Everything Good about the Game Is Really Because Of Dice..EA Really Needs To Learn After Everything They Did Towards “Fixing” the Battlefront Community. But instead We Got This Simple Win Straight from Dice’s Work from battlefront’s other Starfighter/Story modes

  • Be careful about hoping EA will "get it" for once. It's EA, after all. Their reputation is well earned. As some say, "you can crap in one hand and hope in the other, then tell me which one fills faster."

  • The reason I will not be buying this game is because I dont trust EA to not add in the microtransactions later on. They have a history of doing this after the reviews are now and early sales start to die off.

  • Squadrons is fantastic. I think it has genuine esport potential with fleet battles. It's got a very high skill ceiling and rewards skillful play. Even more so if you can get full teams together working in real formations and tactics this game could really shine through

  • Been a Star Wars geek since the cradle. Watched the original version of Jedi in the theaters when I was 5. Played X-wing vs Tie Fighter on 5 1/4 floppy disk. I said all that to say this, I hate this game. It's boring, it's repetitive, the graphics are weak, and the story is bland.

  • How were you able to target anything without the nose going all over the place? Seriously, for anyone with a standard USB joystick, the deadzone is impossibly huge and stability is ridiculously hard to achieve. Also, how did you complete the tutorial/campaign without being able to load Mission 9?

  • My favorite dogfighting game as a kid was Rogue Squadron. This new game reminds me a lot of RS, and I think they did a fantastic job of making a really fun, solid fan service game. It also helps that I have PSVR. Squadrons is another game ENTIRELY on VR. If you don't have it, I recommend getting a VR setup JUST FOR THIS GAME. It is amazing.

  • Now they need to make a game like gta/skyrim but star wars. With the flight system this has but also ground gameplay. Probably will have to wait for the PS7 and XboxV but would be cool.

  • I really wanna try it, but I’m at least 90% certain it will generally disappoint me. I’m all about the multiplayer experience. Flight combat games have a tendency to be bland im that in the majority of cases, you and your opponent are in a wide open space, and the “fight” boils down to whoever’s ship is better able to turn in order to get behind the other, which means that whichever player is piloting the “better” ship is at an extreme advantage, and the entire experience is almost entirely predictable... *ALMOST*. Imagine playing a typical shooter, except it’s 5vs. 5 and the map is just a open field. This has been my experience. So for me, it would have to have an excellent, meaning with a good story and challenging encounters, and fairly long campaign. I liked all of the Rogue Squadron games, and X-Wing Alliance’s campaign and the sort of Power Triangle function as this new iteration seems to have, where you can divert power to different systems, which IS encouraging, but I can’t shake the feeling that it’s not enough... Perhaps the feeling is more intense because of how much EA has disappointed me over the last decade or so. I am also given to understand that there are only 6 maps, and that, to my surprise, only one of them is entirely open space, the others having actual obstacles which could be used to advantage by players, opening the possibility of additional skill creating a more interesting experience, but still I am hesitant to dump $40 on what seems from the reviews and gameplay I’m seeing to be maybe a third of a game. Sure, it looks pretty, and I bet in VR it’s slightly more immersive, but ehhh... I’m still not sold. I haven’t seen that there are any planetary battles, that is which take place on the surface of a planet, but certainly they could further improve the quality and variety of experiences, as terrain could be used to create caves, canyons, valleys, and so on, again which could be used to advantage. Whatever happened to the good ol’ free demo version of games? I’d like to take the blasted thing for a test run before I buy it.

  • I don't understand the mentality of "it isn't full price" as some outstanding positive when it is acknowledged that there's not as much content in the game to begin with. That being said, I hope this game will be good as this type of game is usually fun especially with a SW theme.
