I know there are already a few topics regarding Battlefront 3 on the forum but no REAL discussion threads. I especially don't want to keep filling the one in the News section with opinions and comments. Also, I wanted to mosty hear the opinions from the JK guys that have played the beta, which is why I'm making this in the Jedi Knight section. So, what have you played it on? PC, Xbone, PS4? And how did you feel about it?
My first time trying it out I only played for about 10 minutes on PS4 and couldn't really get a good grasp of the game, so my original opinion was negative. I've been playing today on PS4 again for a lot longer and I got to start using the Cycler Rifle, absolutely love sniping in this game and I think it's interesting how they made it a card feature. I wasn't sure how I felt about this at first but I ended up liking it. I also like how the sniper has to headshot in order to one hit kill, otherwise it just does 90 damage. I'm also really enjoying the jetpack. It reminds me of the one from Advanced Warfare, but I hated it in that. I've pulled off quite a few sick plays with the jetpack and Cycler at the same time, love it.
Walker Assault is a bit Imperial biased in the beta, understandably so, but I've come close to winning on Rebels a few times. The AT-ATs made it to the generator, we destroyed one and the second one had a sliver of health with literally every single player on Rebs firing at it, thought we had it but he ended up getting the generator just in time. I think in the full release rocket launcher cards will balance this out and Rebels will start to win more. Because of this reason, and the lack of players in turrets or AT-STs shooting at you, I think I prefer Drop Zone better atm. Oh and I got to play as Vader, hate his voice but I was absolutely owning with him.
I do still think the full release is going to be lacking in depth and content however, but I'm sure they have plenty of DLC lined up... Good game all in all, not as great as I think it could be, but it's definitely enjoyable. How long til it gets boring though? Probably not too long lol
