Re: Star Wars Squadrons - EA

I ended up caving and picking this up due to reviews and nostalgia. Just finished the prologue and itís great. Whenever Sony gets around to a wireless vr headset, this game makes it a day one purchase for me.

Edit to add: I didnít realize my PS Plus membership had expired until I just went to play multiplayer. Iíll probably just go through the story and then shelve it until I can play in VR.

Re: Star Wars Squadrons - EA

My sister bought this for me for my birthday and I started playing it last night,

I need a little time to get the hang of the controls. Struggling with the flying. Also, I'm currently a tie fighter pilot and there's a segment where I have to scan certain ships for rebels. That part is so fucking tedious.

Gotta say that the first few missions are tedious and not fun. The banter with squad-mates is pointless and boring too.
I've read that it picks up after that though; so I'm holding out hope that the game becomes fun to me.

Coming from EA, that's a shock. The usually try to milk every dime out of the consumers.

Sounds like I just pissed away my money then. I was hoping for more ships.

I've only played through the prologue so far but this is super fun. Playing on PC with a flight stick. I was a huge fan of the dogfighting games of old (X Wing, Tie Fighter, Wing Commander series..etc), this is a great nod to those game.

This is too bad. According to Origin, I've put in around 6hrs into the game, and while I really like it, I don't see myself playing too much more of it. It sure feels like I've seen and done all that this game has to offer. Some new ships and locals would've been nice.

Any recent new verdicts on this one? It's on sale for $19.99 currently, but I'm still on the fence about it.

On the fence for $20? Read the reviews. It is good.

I wish it was $20 at Target, but it's still $25. I would rather make it part of a local Target run than determine what else to buy from Amazon so I don't feel bad about yet another little package shipping my way to cut down on carbon footprint only for them to ship everything separate, anyway.

If you want to cut down on your carbon footprint, digital is only $3 more on both Live and PSN.

This game is good if you're into flight sims. Between combat missions, the prep scenes are redundant and the dialogue between characters is... lazy. Flight sims aren't my thing but if they were, $20 is very fair for this game.

I ended up getting it at Gamestop *shudders* for $16. Only because I was next door at the grocery store.

So this finally hit $20 at Target this week. Is it worth it? I liked Star Wars Battlefront II but was never a good pilot at all. I like the Battlefield games but was never a good pilot at all. I liked Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order but never finished it. I like Star Wars. One left in stock at the Target about a mile away and I have some free time coming up to play a while next week. Whattaya think?
