I'm sorely tempted to buy this game. Have any of you played it and, if so, what did you think?

PS4?

Supposed to 25 for Target's black friday sale.
Might be 25 at walmart right now.

I'm going to be getting it at that price.

I broke down and bought, the first video game I've purchased in 10+ years. Right now I'm just going through the training missions getting the hang of things.

Ahh, then I'm all the more interested in your take.

The VR version of this looks pretty sweet.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

I have PSVR, so I'll have a review for that aspect of the game up as well. Now it just has to get here ...

PC master race or bust, nigga.

This game gets mixed reviews on steam, so I haven't picked it up, but I'm interested in its reception here.

The game starts out ok, the excitement of Star Wars gets you interested. Then quickly you get hit in the face with sjw propaganda and anti-white narrative. What could have been a fun game to play turns into a lack-luster experience with minimal to no options for 80% of its fan base
Which one of you is Zack?

I've been playing the storyline and there's a fair helping of butch women, non-binaries, and minorities as characters but the actual gameplay is awesome. They really captured the cinematic experience of star pilots in the films, and many small details about diverting power between different ship systems, coordinating squadron tactics, and customizing the ships you fly give it a solid immersive feeling. As I said, I haven't played games in a long time, so I can't really give it a meaningful review, but I think it's super fun and my 13 year old does too, although he's still kinda gay for Battlefront II.

Battlefront II was a good game. I'm looking forward to 6 coming out next year.
