Star Wars: Battlefront
Posted 22 September 2004 - 02:42 PM
My first concern is that the game doesnt have enough options to keep you playing for months on in. For example, you try to capture the other teams command posts online to win the battle, but thats all you can do. There are no other styles of games to play.
Another problem i believe is going to stick with this game and console playing is the Lag. Now i was in one room that wasnt too bad on XBL but that host had 768 upload and 768 download and was paying $70 a month for it. I dont think all the average gamers can afford that bill - he was using a business connection. Another thing i just found out, is that PS2 and PC versions are using Gamespy as thier host - the good thing about this is they allowed users to download Server code to run a dedicated server for both of those version - none for the Xbox.
Since Xbox console gaming is all P2P i think is going to be hard for them to get close to having 16 users in one arena. That being said the AI bots that are in the game can be very stupid and not help at all. I think that MS should look into having a centralized server for such games since most users usually have a greater download speed that upload.
The graphics are good and the sound of a LA game are always good, however if i was to do it all over again i think i would have just rented the game first. I think I might even consider selling this one back or on ebay it things dont change.
Maybe Xlink Kai people can host a better game than XBL - i know that could be possible.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to improve the online portion of the game suggestions welcomed.

I do agree with you however, it is a tad laggy from what I have experienced. Definately need a fast connection to serve, but think about it. All those bots and players, theres going to be a little lag if the connection is not up to par.

Jumping into the different walkers, airships,turrets is fun ...just like 1942.
Just compare it to 1942 and not Story Based games.
If you don't like 1942 you will not like this.
If you get bored with 1942 you will get bored with this.
If you LOVE 1942 you will LOVE this game!
If you set up one xbox as dedicated server NO LAG!
It has setup screen in game that gives you that OPTION (make this xbox dedicated server)
GREAT for LAN party! 24 people.

the connections online with XBL are horrible. once in a blue, i'll actually get a good game without too much lag.
