    EA made it harder to refund as well.

    Serves people right for pre-ordering all the time.

    That said, i still hate EA with a passion :)

    Man, the campaign is just pure fast food, a 4 hour walk in the park, no substance nor gameplay mechanics whatsoever. And the end is, let´s say it´s not there.

    @Monchis Just tried a lit bit of the campaign, thanks to origin access, and the only thing I see is massive graphics, story content or gameplay I didn't saw nothing special so far.
    The optimization in this game though it is excellent.
    I can average 45-60FPS with high settings 1080P with my specs, can you believe that?

    Finished the campaign on the hardest setting. I must be a minority but I actually enjoyed it a lot, expected it to be a lot worse. It's short, true (took me like 6-7 hours), but it's not boring for a bit. Good voice acting, nice cutscenes and visuals are fantastic. I especially enjoyed the fact that it had a lot of starfighter action, as I was horrible in beta at flying, now at least I got the chance to learn the ropes. I'll definitely play it again for the collectibles.

    Now multiplayer, haven't touched it yet, but I liked it in beta, will probably still like it now. I don't mind grinding, but the lootboxes crap is really bad. At least they dropped the season pass, I will never buy a lootbox with real money, that's for sure...

    Since I'm only interested in the SP that's good to hear.
    I enjoyed the Force Unleashed games and even remember renting and enjoying the poorly received Phantom Menace game on the PS1 :)

    Not that I plan to buy it anytime soon, if ever as will probably wait until it's on Origin Access. Maybe all this negativity will help get the price down or onto Access quicker.

    EA is likely to end up losing money with this game, the license is probably a fortune.

    I'm a few hours into the campaign and it is the worst thing ive ever seen. I'm just beating my face against the wall trying to finish it for the rewards. I despise the new Iden Versio character. It is pure torture. I may have to huff paint to finish it.

    Just reminds me of people claiming Wolfenstein 2 or Mafia III were the worst games ever made... and blah, blah, blah.
    The campaign seems to be the one thing about this game people have been talking up. With some stating the story is a bit boring, but the campaign itself is fun.

    Of course I believe your performance, every console port should run like that on 7850/gtx660 level video cards. I had this last card and it used to run ports 50%-100% faster than ps4 first couple of years on console settings, they can´t anymore because lazy devs stop optmizing as soon as games get playable on their gtx1080, not because the hardware can´t handle console games.

    long are gone the days where we had great games from EA, desert strike, jungle strike, road rash, and nfs 2... long are gone the days of a good dev that i used to support.

    HFTS shadows murder performance and just seem to darken everything way too much... Bugged? Even PCSS isn't worth the hit imo vs bumping up the resolution scaling.

    PCSS filtering is demanding and HFTS which features shadow filtering at a much higher resolution would probably be too much in modern games without a very high-end GPU.
    The Division where this debuted even compromised by having night time revert to PCSS if I'm remembering that correctly, still seems to manage pretty good framerates in those images though but the drop in percentage is pretty high.
    (For a 120Hz screen neither would be fast enough to sustain 120+ frames per second at least for that level.)

    Well, since I'm still locked at 60 FPS I played with PCSS and haven't noticed any drops (card usage is very high though), so I can imagine that high frames with it enabled isn't doable.

    Played some more of the multiplayer, I still like it, the gameplay that is. But the fact that in like 2-3 days there are people who have so many purple starcards (especially with starfighters) is bullshit. I don't mind the locked heroes, but the fact that some who either bought crystals or farmed points with starfighter exploit in galactic assault and have such a huge headstart ALREADY is messed up. To top it all off, I can barely last 30 seconds when I get in a starfighter myself... all in all, a very unfair system that ruined an otherwise good (or with good potential) game.

    Yah, the loot cards have really wrecked the MP.

    Instead of unbalancing the game via season pass, now they are doing it via loot cards :rolleyes:

    I've also heard people on youtube saying that there will be paid DLC, EA are just going to wait a while before trying that on.

    EA's greed has pretty much ruined this game tbh, I'm not even going to bother with the MP at this point. I just hope that they add to the arcade mode and hopefully they will add a bot match as well (although it took them 12 months to do that in BF1). I'm not sure why this is always omitted by DICE as the much decried CoD implements it in every single release without fail.

    The SP, while good (well, mostly), was way too short and felt 'bolted on'.

    It looks like the EA game dev that said he received death threats doesn't even work for EA.....

    Should’ve called the player base misogynistic. Nobody would’ve gone sniffing around :p
