star wars

well i will start with that this game is based on the popular series star wars and the movie's are not that violent, yes I understand that there is blood in the movie there is not in the game. I know some parents will be paranoid about guns and violence but in the star wars movies there heads being chopped off all the time and people getting shot in the shoulder, and its not even real guns there blasters. Parents if your child is ten and up I think this game is fine.

Terrible game mechanics

I would normally tell you you child would have a difficult and strategic time playing this game. But EA ruined it with the Jedi and the Sith and the other hero’s in the game. Largely in part because these units just alone can tilt the entire battle so sideways there is no room for recovery. It leaves the player more and more frustrated and upset. That in the end they just can’t complete the objectives because they are torn apart on the field leaving no skill involved. It’s not a game for players that want to play to learn. It’s one where EA invested money and just threw it out there to just get money back. With no interest for its consumer player base what a terrible job.

This title has:

Too much consumerism
