For me the thing that really stood out was the phyics. For example in a AT ST on endor bodies went flying when it fired, which looked great. The vehicles in action look suberb. Graphics look great. It looks like the movies.

I'll gladly host it. I have alot of site space and bandwith to boot, so slow downloads (like freewebs) or little bandwith causing people to have to wait a month for the download (like Geocities) is of little problem. I don't know how you'll get me the file though.

If you need my E-Mail its SITHShadowCat@comcast.net.

It's 5 minutes 35 seconds


The game looks very very great! Even better than i thought! But these things BUG ME LIKE HELL:


- Way too accurate, way too accurate. It may be in my advantage, but still thinking generally i dont like weps to be that accarute

-the torpedo launcher is also fast and accarute, and therefore looks better to take out unites instead...something like a shotgun

-droidekas look too powerful

-strafing. It seems this game will be a strafe fight, moving left and right in battles only



What looked awesome was in geonosis those tanks walking around, it looked sooo good, like in the movies

I think that the acuracy issue will be what seperate the good players from the bad. You may think the contrary, but observer the rate of fire, not too quick, seems right. Also note the ammo limit located in the top left corner, seems some what too limited for recleness. I don't really know how this will all play out, so we'll see.

The droidekas ARE powerful, but they're also slow, their aming is limited to just turning right or left, rather slowly. Good players will find ways to avoid this.

I also see your point on the strafing, but note that some levels will limit this. And isn't this how all fps go, correct me if I'm wrong.

Craftsman, you lied about the pilot being able to build where ever , they can only build on special blaster like icons, check the video again and see what i'm talking about.

a good player is not just someone who can move his mouse well, but implements tactics as well...with tacs implemented he has no problem with the lack of accuracy. Besides, here it looked as if all bullets were hits. In the movies you see bullets randomly flying everwhere, missing...not straight lines. Besides; you HAVE to compensate for the "not reloading"

yes many games are, and its actually ridiculous; seeing players run in cirkles shooting...but in this video it was exaggerated

i hope you agree with me on the sniper looking way too easy, the sniper not moving and stuff

I see what you mean, but when I look at this game, I see Jedi Academy's Siege mode. I love having accuracy as the sniper in Seige, and thats how I get most of my kills, is the accuracy which gives the cross hairs a point instead of the random-shooting -every-where-without-caring-and-hope-you-get-a-kill situation. This video showed good hits from close range, and may have come from someone more skilled against some one who's not. I though the way fire fights happened in the movie was completey strange, how is that almost no hits were made? Just movie dramatization for you.Just looked at the movie, and saw in a bespin map , the part where a guy is on a ledge with grandes being thrown at him, lasers were flying everywhere. But I can see why all this is a concern, but I really must play out for myself before I judge something for the better or worse.

EDIT: After watching some more, I saw that Endor involved alot more of the stationary combat then the other maps, so the circle battle may be limited on certain maps like this.
And I actually saw reloading, if you look at the player, some time they bring there gun up and change clips.

*Puts on Spelling Nazi hat.*

Wookiee Wookiee Wookiee!

Two E's!

Okay, I've watched it now, and here's what I have to say:

The Droideka. Waaaay overpowered. It took out an entire squad of Clone Troopers in a matter of seconds. Also, the Droideka does not lose its shield when it walks. You can clearly see from the movies that Droidekas lose their shield when walking. I can sense the nerf-stick smashing the Droideka very soon after Battlefront's release.

Pilot classes seen to be pretty well-armed for someone who is supposed to be, well, piloting.

The Wookiee bowcaster shoots GREEN lasers. OMG, has the Jedi Knight series had that much influence on the Star Wars universe? Green bowcaster lasers = WRONG!

Ya..spread green shot from the bowcaster is rather silly.

But who knows...those clone troopers being blasted by the droid were probably bots..so...its not surprising they got wiped really fast. I'll watch it again, but I never saw that thing get shot at when it was moving around.

Lasers can be any colours. Remember that the rolling driod thing is very vunreable and certain weopns are designed to take out its shield.
