Despite its polished aesthetic and beautiful looking graphics, it seems Star Wars Battlefront 2 has become its own worst enemy. This article delves into the things that stand out in the latest outing by EA. The review focuses primarily on the game’s campaign mode.
First of all, the campaign mode is a new addition to the game and is a welcome development. It is set in the events following the end of the Return of the Jedi and follows the character of Iden Verso. The story itself is interesting enough as players are put in the shoes of an imperial officer who is slowly coming to grip with the reality of the Empire’s fall.
However, while the premise itself seems interesting enough, the problem lies in its execution. The pacing is extremely rushed and this has a grave effect not only in character development but on the gameplay as well.
This is mainly due to EA’s efforts to pander to the fandom, as players are essentially given a tour of the Star Wars galaxy. In the end, the game would leave you wanting for a deeper and more engaging experience overall.
The OKC Thunder has been on a roll lately. They have won no less than eight of their past 10 games. With a record like that, there is certainly no denying the team is on fire. In fact, they are moving closer and closer to the playoffs following the consecutive defeat of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers at the Staples Center.
Of course, this is not to say that the team is perfect. If anything else, the numbers from the previous games would reveal a particular weak spot for the squad. For instance, in their victory against the Clippers, the Thunders let their opponents score 64 points in the paint, 46 points of which during the first half alone.
The issue here is the fact that their lines in the front court are extremely thin. Steven Adams is their primary big man. Yet, they have no reliable back-up. The problem would be exacerbated if Adams would get into foul trouble early on as they would be left even more exposed to attacks on the paint and the post.
