The graphics make it look like a console port...which it is. But I'm eager to see how the gameplay works out. If it's fun to play I can get over the graphics...
No demo for the PC is a bad sign....

yea..I can live with so-so graphics...as long as the gameplay is there. Most star-wars games are good at setting decent enviornments as well...I was hoping to try a demo---but oh well...if it stinks...it's not like it's the first time I spent $50 on a horrible game...or the last....heck..just recently I wasted $54.99 on doom 3. =/

Who said there will be no demo? I was at blockbuster today and they had a promo commercial for the game running on the monitors and it said that the trilogy DVD set was going to have a PC demo of battlefront on it.

This game looks like a cheap rip-off of the BF series, only set in the Star Wars universe. At first, I was looking forward to this game, then I saw that:

1. It only has up to 16 characters totaled. Smells like it was coded to work online with the consoles first, then the PC. The BF series supports up to 64. I don't know about u guys, but I want my battles to be big and hectic, and having 8 players on each side in a big battle is, well, not dramatic enough for me.

2. Graphics aren't that great.

3. NO JEDIS! What kind of Star Wars game is that with no freakin' Jedis?!

They should've upped the player count to 35+, and they should put Jedis in there. I know they're super strong, so they should liimit the number of Jedis to 1 or 2 per team, depending on how many there are. Hard to kill, but the limited number evens it out, and makes you feel more special in getting a Jedi class. To make it even more fair, everyone should be alotted a random ticket number so they get their turn in being a Jedi or something.

As it stands, this game looks and, IMO, will be . BF2 is the best game coming out in this genre.

Actually, it'll be 32 for online play and 64 for LAN play (which isn't too shabby).

Can't argue there.

I think they just wanted it to be different from Jedi Knight/Academy.

Woops, ok 32 sounds a bit better.

And about it being different from Jedi Knight....of course it will! Going into war with a lightsabre would make the game completely different from BF. Being able to use force powers and carving people up with a glow stick would be pretty cool. As it stands now, it's just...the same as any other games in its class. Of course, if the idear of using droid armies as an option appeals to u. I prefer toasting live bodies rather than metallic ones. But oh well, to each his own.

It should be OK. I'm not expecting greatness though.
