Well, personally, I think that the lack of different game modes in BF1 really sucks.
BF1 may have better gameplay in some areas, but overall BF2 is better.
Also, since jedi are playable in BF2 without having to download a mod, that just makes it all the more superior.

I love both!
I like just to shot down some droids
In BF1 i like maps with flying vehicles (example Bespin)
In BF2 i like the clone skins and battle in space (The turrets aim me 2 much sometimes )

BF1 is good for fun, since there's a ton of mods and maps for it. The sides are more balanced (although BF2's are still balanced, there are a few cheap weapons), and the nature of the game seems fresh and lively (not graphic-wise).
BF2 is good for competitive play, which I do quite often (a lot!). Although some features are missing that were in BF1, those features wouldn't really fit with BF2, since it's nature seems grittier (not graphic-wise) compared to BF1. Also, flying doesn't mean instant death! YAY!
So I chose BF2 in my vote.

I like the HUD in SWBF1 better than in 2, but other than that, 2 is much better made and more fun to play.

im with all of u except i like the hud in bf2

SWBF1 doesnt have massive detpack glitches, therefore i like it a whole lot better.
however, i like swbf2's space, but space alone isnt enough to redeem the game against hundreds of glitches in conquest.

The original isn't anywhere near as sloppy as Battlefront 2, plus it has more of a "Star Wars feel."

BF 1 was sooo much better u had smart allies and smart enemys
BF 2 dose have jedi controll and better graphics and better looking clones but the AI is sooo stupid its not funny ive conquered a plannet in 3 mins and 30ish seconds before in BF2 (i was darth maul though and with a little help from the stupidity of my enemys) but when they bring out a BF 3 i really hope they do something about the AI other than that good games
but because of the AI i would say BF 1 personnly
[b] #9 - BF1 - Posted by: gagagigo3 (Member) on 06-03-2007 at 08:09 [/b]
I really like BF2; i like BF1 better because you dont have to get 18 freakin points. Flying around in Rhen Var ruins is real fun, in BF2 that'll take about 9 kills without being killed. THATS INSANE
-bf1 special units immediately accessible
-bf2 special units not accessible from beginning

bfII has to many ep III levels, i liked it balanced, but still, space battles, heroes etc.. to bad it didn't have a hud
i voted bfII
[b] #12 - Posted by: Domm_Commander (Member) on 06-04-2007 at 13:49 [/b]
BF2 has better graphics, more playable characters, and more levels than BF1 so BF2 is my vote.
[b] #13 - Posted by: vonfrank (Member) on 06-04-2007 at 18:07 [/b]
battlefront 2 would be superior to 1 in every way if 2 had splash dammage on the tanks weapons
#14 - Posted by: Metall_pingwin (FileFront Network Staff) on 06-04-2007 at 19:22 [/b]
Better physics, better maps, better gameplay, nicer graphics, better community, no jedi, felt like star wars
Guess what i voted?
[b]#15 - Posted by: Kakashi971 (Member) on 06-05-2007 at 13:05 [/b]
BF2 cuz of all the new maps and gear coming to this place
[b] #16 - hmm tough to say - Posted by: GrdAdmSenza (Member) on 06-06-2007 at 14:54[/b]
probably bf1, sure bf2 has better graphics, jedi, and space, and a new galactic conquest, but thats about it. Sure there were n o playable jedi in bf1, that was annoying, but oddly enuf some ppl seem to complain these days about the fact the AI doesn't get them, ironic huh? BF1 had the splash damage, that was a plus, ALL of the good maps arent on BF2, like rhen vhar harbor(great map), dune sea, and of course the OLD Geonosis all us BF1 players know and love. Plus theres the fact there were levels where you actually HAD objectives, like to destroy the bunker(the yapping narrator was a big help in motivating me, usually did it so hed shut up). Plus theres the flying on the grround, man that sounds odd lol. My vote goes to BF1, why did i ever uninstall that game?

@ #13 & #16 What is splash damage? If someone could tell me, I might be able to put it into my mod. I voted BFII, though mine probably doesn't count for much since I've only played that one.
[b] #18 - splash damage - Posted by: GrdAdmSenza (Member) on 06-07-2007 at 13:22[/b]
splash damage is basically an area affect, it used to be in bf1 that all vehicle weps, lasers and missles had splash damage, making them more effective.
[b] #19 - Posted by: Dune_Titan (Member) on 06-07-2007 at 13:45[/b]
i think bf2 was sloppy and made too fast but it does have more maps and better charaters. bf1 had moe of the starwarsy feel but bf2 has better graphics.
i vote bf2 because there is more mods and downloadable maps, but without that it would probable be bf2
[b] #20 - BF2 Definetly! - Posted by: Gold_Leader (Member) on 06-07-2007 at 14:06 [/b]
I would have to say that I like BF2 better because you get to play as Jedi, do Space Battles, play as the 501st, and a lot of other neat stuff. So that's why I chose BF2 better than BF1 by far! BF2 ROX!!!!
#21 - #13 - Posted by: Gold_Leader (Member) on 06-07-2007 at 14:12[/b]
GrdAdmSenza, there is a place where you can get the maps from BF1 back into BF2. And they have Classic Conquest so you can play it as it was in BF1. They also made it waaayyyy better, instead of 6 you get to play as 9 different inftantry, and they have made more vehicles and different skins for the maps. Like for Kashyyyk, they have camo armor like they do in the movie, even though a little different. Here's the site: http://www.gametoast.com then you go to "forums" and it should be right there. Hope this works out okay for ya!
Sorry for the.... double post.

I put SWBF1 but here are my pro's and con's.
+ Late Clone Wars era Clonetroopers and equipment.
+ No more "Hunchback" infantry models.
+ Single Player Campaign Storyline + Temeura Morrison
- Weird mixing of Clonetrooper color schemes on a map.
- Nerfing of vehicles.
- Utter lack of "Splash Damage" from large weapons, i.e. AT-AT's huge blaster cannons.
- Space game is laughable at best, especially with the devs supposedly using the classic "X-Wing vs TIE Fighter" as inspiration.
- Jedi. There are enough games focused on Jedi, and SWBF was to be centered on the people that really made things happen. The everyday troopers and pilots. The Jedi should have been left as potent NPCs pertinent tot he battle / mission.
- The inexplicable removal of Vehicle Cockpits.
- The inexplicable removal of the PRONE POSITION!
- The inexplicable removal of simultaneous flight and ground fighting. Space? Laughable at best as I mentioned earlier.
- "Hunchback" infantry models that are noticeably bad even during the days of initial release.
+ Toggable Vehicle Cockpits!
+ Standing, Crouching, Prone Positions, all having quite different pro's and con's.
+ Maps that include large scale ground combat as well as flight and maps that include ground AND air vehicles. Geonosis. Hoth. Bespin Platforms. Etc.
+ Not centered around Jedi for once in a long time for a Star Wars game.
+ Vehicles are useful and infantry have situations that make them quite deadly. They also come in a variety of duties / functions.

I like battlefront 2 better but the scoreboard in the first one was way better. The new scoreboard is kinda plain where the old one was easier to just look up at and say hey i'm winning/ losing. also i liked the green better than the blue for your team but that is more of a personal thing
[b] #24 - Posted by: Salty_Bob (Member) on 06-10-2007 at 07:04 [/b]
sorry for the double post but i also liked the galactic conquest in the first where the planets gave you your bonuses better. all the parts of galactic conquest in BF2 are better except no planetary bonuses (which influenced which planet you attacked) and no neutral planets that you have to completely secure (if you think about it, it makes more sense because no one faction controls the planet at that point and each faction is fighting over it.)

#22 The SWBF2 space design came from a different game, one that probably no one here has heard of.
If you played space, i would take your opinion. But as is, i don't recognize your name from in-game, therefore your opinion is... void...
If you play online, tell me the name you play by and I'll see if I recognize you... If you don't play online, you can't make an opinion of the game, because it was designed for online play - however crappily.
As for prone, i think the developers left it out of swbf2 because it's too fast paced. I don't belive Halo had prone - because it, too, is a fast-paced game, and as far as I know, nobody complained about that.
If you lie down, you're dead. In SWBF2, you have to keep moving. Snipers can't just sit in one spot like in other games - you'll be too easy a target for the other guy.
Splash damage isn't necessary. Tanks are enough firepower as they are.
