A game that improves on the first in every way scores much less than the original, nice lol. As if there was a proper progression system for the first game. Meh I’m loving it.

Forza defined the Car Simulator Genre, it was always the highest selling franchise in the genre by a HUGE margin. - Izraeil

It kind of sucks. The game looks amazing visually. I'm sure it plays well. Its Star Wars. Its iconic.

The game dipped into the yellow on MC and minutes later EA announced they were going to pull purchases. Coincidence? Maybe.

Its no secret companies place a HUGE internal emphasis on review scores, going so far as to deny employees bonuses and such for not meeting certain scores.

I just imagine all this effort put into the game and then the higher ups slap a bunch of crap on it, spoil the name through poor PR and blame everyone that put in hours of labor making a GOOD game on the low scores.

The whole thing is beyond wild at this point.

As much as I don't care for scores or reviews I'm glad they didn't just give EA what they wanted and bumped this up after the micro transaction reversal.

Stick it to the a******s with the low scores.

While everything surrounding the game is obviously terrible business practice, IGN are just jumping on the bandwagon here. I'd be willing to bet my life that if EA hadn't received all this backlash, but the game remained the same, IGN would have loved it.

IGN is just hopping on the bandwagon to not draw any of the hate onto themselves.

No. The reviewer clearly stated that the multiplayer is not just broken: it is one of the worse in recent memory. Relying exclusively on the loot system to progress was a colossal mistake. I know you guys love the conspiracies but could it be that the game just isn't THAT good ? The single-player campaign too, has glaring flaws.
