Battlefront 1 & 2 were two of my faveourite PS2 games. Many late night alcohol fueled splitscreen battles were had. Fucking loved it.

FRD could have done a good job with the game too, I'm sure, and if that is early footage, it certainly looked promising.

I hope someone else has the liceince now, which I heard is probably the case.

I'll say one thing about that footage. That's easily the best lightsabre battling I've seen in any Star Wars game since...well Lightsabre Battles on the Atari 2600!

Christ, if Force Unleashed's lightsabre battles were like that, it would've rocked my socks off.

The animation is superb.

LOL

Yeah, in Battlefront II there were 'hunt' missions where someone played as the 'animals' and someone played as the humans. The animals could only punch, but could run really fast and jump really high.

Humans had to kill all the animals to win. I'd always shout 'let's play hunt!' and my friend would say, 'no, it's fucking retarded'. Was fun though.

(may have been in Battlefield as well, can't remember)

As long as you could blow the shit out of ewoks, I'd have bought it.

In fact, a minigame where you're armed with the death star and use it to systematically blow chunks out of endor would've got a big thumbs up too.

Well I've seen one of their last builds (on ps3) and it didn't look anything like that. All that lightsabre stuff is mocaped cutscenes.

aye, that sort of fluidity surpasses anything in a game focussed on sword fighting stuff like soul caliber. for it to play like that as just one aspect of a game with a far larger scope is a pretty unrealistic expectation. or if it did it would be because of it being qte based, not all nice and freeform.

I'm surprised at how nice that looked considering it was shit-canned, how odd!

I assume it had a first person view as well though, if it didn't I would have been annoyed if it had come out.

What gets my goat about this is that Rebellion ended up getting the contract for the game..

Let that sink in for a moment. Rebellion vs FRD. I know who I'd have put my money on.

(the PSP SWB game that Rebellion did was fucking atrocious. How they have the indecency to ask people for money for it is beyond me. Good job I didn't pay for it then :)

S'okay, I drowned my sorrows in the way any self-respecting man does - I got really drunk and then have spent all weekend complaining about my hangover. :)

IGN did a story with an ex FRD employee, and it explained a lot about Haze.

Seemingly UbiSoft absolutely butchered her.

Where'bouts, if you wouldn't mind? I'd quite like to read that - obviously with still being at FRD there's always been a limited amount I can say on the subject.

Edit: No worries - found it. I'd rate the accuracy of that article at pfft/10. There's some truth in there but there's also a lot of nonsense. Problem is, for any of you who've worked at a company of any size above a handful of people, nobody apart from those at the very top really have a particularly good idea of what's going on. So what you're seeing is the conclusions of someone who was only in possession of some of the facts.

End of the day anyway, to be serious about it for a moment, we are where we are and I'd rather look forward than back at this point.

I couldn't find it because IGN is such crap. Impossible to find things.

Dudenaughty explained that Haze had gone through a number of major creative and conceptual overhauls, contributing to the development difficulties Free Radical experienced with it. "Originally Haze was a very hardcore thing. In terms of the content, the issues it was dealing with, the gore, the politics; it was a very adult game," he said. "Right at the beginning Haze was set in the modern day in Iraq and it was like Bush-bashing, a politically centered thing. It got re-written dozens of times on [Ubisoft's] request and it ended up being this futuristic kind of thing about something totally unrelated."


It was mainly this. If true I have no idea what Ubisoft was playing at.

Really don't find it at all hard to believe that it was hobbled. Ubisoft seem to have a habit of doing this lately with fairly hardcore games - simplifying them and stripping them of content that would actually make them essential, but instead makes them mediocre.

I know I keep banging on about it but the new Prince of Persia felt so focus-group led in so many ways, that you wonder what happened to the series along the way. Prince of Persia: Sands of Time was fantastic, Two Thrones maybe not so but even so there was still an edginess to 'em. Now all that's been traded in for a bunch of wisecracks and any clever content has been dissolved into a hub-game-led mess of running to and fro.

Didn't even like Far Cry 2 because of the extended periods of non-action in between frenetic bouts of everyone trying to kill you.

What if I was gagged and having a stroke?

Edit: On re-reading that post actually sounds like it belongs in some fetish thread. :D

Sorry I really will shut up with the Ubi-hate now. I can make a pretty educated guess as to how it went, and can fully understand why you feel like having a schizoid embolism, Neko...
