We have just played LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens for something like 45 minutes and we must say it is still a pretty enjoyable title. It obviously doesn't add much to the usual formula, other than the fact that you can build several things from the same pile of LEGO bricks and the basic cover system in some situations, but if you're a Star Wars fan and have kids to play with, then it works like a charm. As you'll see, this new episode in the franchise looks really good visually speaking and it's a nice surprise to start the adventure with the end of Return of the Jedi. The 4 videos inside were captured on PC at 1080p while the game was running with Nvidia's DSR 4K.
But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (56 minutes ago)
Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (56 minutes ago)
@Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (56 minutes ago)
the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (1 Hour ago)
and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (7 Hours ago)
@MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (7 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (7 Hours ago)
