Star Wars: Battlefront is here! It looks sharp, sounds amazing, and has a hectic pace that's surprisingly reminiscent of something like Quake. Unfortunately, there are some issues holding the game back. Objectives and map designs feel half-baked. Power-ups are unintuitive, clunky things that introduce randomness instead of meaningful decisions. The overall experience feels more like a frustrating meat grinder than a meat grinder you'd happily throw yourself into.
Thankfully, DICE is on the case. With this week's patch they hope to address the most glaring flaws.
