I’m not mad about anything. I’m sad that I want to enjoy NBF2 and that I don’t, for whatever reason.
You’re missing the point. The emphasis should be on how the classes play so massively differently in OBF2. Yes, the classes are different in NBF2, but not (in my opinion) to the same extent as OBF2.
I actually enjoy games (like OW, although that’s obviously very different and has lots of characters) with set classes, so that is the class weapon, and that you don’t get to change it up. I’m not saying it’s always the best way of doing things, but variety (of implemented systems) is good in my opinion.
Please don’t misunderstand me. I’m not trying to “complain” that NBF2 is a bad game. I wasn’t even trying to complain that it has strayed too far from the originals (although I feel I would probably prefer it if it played a lot more like them - hell I’d rather play OBF2 than NBF2), I’m sad that I can’t seem to enjoy the game. For me, the gunplay and the squad system just aren’t done in a way that I like. They are however very similar in ways to Battlefield.
I’m not saying “I can’t like NBF2 because it’s basically Battlefield and I don’t like Battlefield”. I’m saying that I don’t like aspects such as the gunplay and squad system, aspects which are quite similar in ways to Battlefield (which I also happen to not enjoy playing).
Comparing a 2005 game to modern standards is a little cruel. Of course its gunplay and graphics won’t hold up as well to most games. That being said I actually still enjoyed it more than the new BF2. And yes, I have played both recently. (this is excluding the space battles which I really enjoyed in NBF2)
I’m not saying that all parts of Battlefield and Battlefront are identical. I’m mainly comparing them in terms of how shooting feels, and squads which I personally am not a fan of. Kudos to you if you enjoy it, I sadly do not.
Maps aren’t always scaling up to be massive. OW maps are probably smaller/same size as OBF2 maps and look how much further that came out. PERSONALLY I THINK that I would prefer gunplay MORE similar to OBF2 (but obviously with some upgrades) to NBF2. And having the maps at a similar size to the older game.
Sorry, that part shouldn’t have been left in there. Was left over from a previous comparison that I deleted. My bad
Okay, this part might be long, but I feel it needs to be said.
You’re mixing two different arguments here. Why I feel Battlefront has a Battlefield feel, and how I am able to like the original Battlefront 2, but not like the new Battlefront 1 and 2.
The very feel of the weapons, irrespective of whether they spew bullets or lasers really reminds me of the weapon handling of Battlefield. Maybe part of my comparison is that I don’t like either, but to me they feel very similar. Again, the squad based system, larger maps (although they might look and be nothing like Battlefield maps) remind me MORE of a Battlefield game than OBF2. The class based system is akin to Battlefield moreso than OBF2. This all adds to why I feel like it has a Battlefield “feel”. In some ways I think NBF2 is how I imagine a Battlefield set in the future with Star Wars textures would be like. As I keep saying, just how I feel on the matter, not trying to bash anything/anyone.
This is my opinion, my “feel”. I’m not saying it’s a clone. Don’t have jetpacks, or half of the other things from NBF2 in Battlefield. But it has somethings which really feels reminiscent of Battlefield. I happen not to like some of those things. That is how it having a “Battlefield feel” is a problem to me. It probably makes it more approachable for most people. I’m in a very small minority of just not liking NBF2’s feel. Not hating on the game, more sad than anything that I can’t enjoy this visual masterpiece.
