A "TIE FIGHTER" veteran's lament
I drove to see "Phantom Menace" with my best friend my junior year of high school. I'd just gotten my drivers license the fall before. Prior to that, Star Wars was a much different animal. The "Expanded Universe", as it came to be known, existed, but a lot of it was garbage and we ignored it. So much that we take for granted in the legendarium and mythology simply didn't exist. The most significant addition to the story had taken place from 1991-1993 with the "Thrawn Trilogy". While Grand Admiral Thrawn has once again become canon, this is before any of that was even an issue. "Heir to the Empire" was the gold standard for anything beyond the movies. But how to put that into a visual medium, to see and experience just like watching the original films? Before midichlorians, before Jar Jar Binks, before hackneyed dialogue. But also before the glory of what we now know as the Sith, before the very good storytelling which has since come from some places. There simply wasn't much that existed to fill the Star Wars void.
Growing up, one of my friend's father had what was, in 1993, a "cutting edge" gaming PC. I think it was a whopping 50 Mhz. He also had all the latest and coolest games. It was in his living room, on that PC, that I first played "X-Wing". To an 11 year old, I thought it was the coolest thing I'd ever seen.
That is, until I was 12 and 1994 came along, and I played "TIE FIGHTER" in that same living room. I always sympathized with the Empire to begin with, and now there was a medium that showed what I always knew in my heart o be true: these are just guys doing their job, policing the galaxy, and trying to make the universe a safer place. Sure, Imperial pilots had to kill rebel scum, but they also intercepted illicit drugs, intervened in civil wars to stop the bloodshed, and protected private property and important research. This was, in a word, AMAZING.
In 1996, I finally had my own PC, a scratch built clunker that another friend and I managed to piece together. It had a whopping 8 MB of RAM, 300MB hard drive, and was a 486DX 66 Mhz (if I recall correctly). One of the first games I got was TIE CD collector's edition, which had the expansions and was the ultimate TIE Fighter experience in one convenient package. I even found a group online (the internet was in its infancy then, compared to what it is now) which was a combination role-playing/social club where we'd create customized missions (there was a way to mod TIE and replace "Battle 1" with your own missions. Obviously no voice or otherwise, but it was serviceable).
As I grew older, I played many games on many platforms. As I've gone well into adulthood, I still play games when I can. Obviously it's a lot different now. Ironically, I have more than enough money to buy any game that strikes my fancy - unlike in my childhood where I had to scrimp or save or hope someone paid attention to what I said I wanted come a birthday or Christmas. But I don't have the time anymore. At least, not to spend days and nights in front of a computer screen (or the TV). But I digress....
I've thought to myself for years, that if LucasArts, then EA (or whoever) wanted to capitalize on nostalgia from guys like me, all they had to do was give TIE a proper remaster. The 1998 version with "better" (I use that word loosely) graphics was most certainly not it. The original TIE Fighter, despite its blocky graphics and low resolution had some of the most magical little details.
Take the "iMuse" system. I bet a lot of you kids are saying "What's an iMuse?". The music for TIE was all good old fashioned MIDI. And sometimes getting your sound to work properly was a nightmare. IRQ? Soundblaster? What's that? But once it worked, in game...wow. You see, the music actually responded to what you did. When a star destroyer arrived, you got this little leitmotif seamlessly woven into the background music. When you accomplished one of your secondary goals, same thing. The music changed perfectly based on what was happening in your battle. John Willams's music is incredible, don't get me wrong. But I preferred the original TIE reactive MIDI. Look it up online if you want to see what I'm talking about. It was a LucasArts thing of the 90s; I don't think anyone else has done it since.
Then there were the missions themselves. Obviously dog-fighting was the core of the game, but there was so much more involved. There was no 3rd person nonsense - you were in the cockpit, period. You had buttons that allowed you to look out side or rear viewports, but they weren't really needed. But the variety...you weren't just shooting up other fighters. You might need to inspect cargo ships (you'd target them and fly really close to learn what was in their holds), then disable the ship and escort the assault transports when they came to seize the contraband cargo. Drugs? War materials? Rebel spies? I saw it all! You might need to take out the fighter screen in one battle, but in another the AI was doing that and your mission was to launch space bombs or heavy rockets at a platform.
Which leads me to the next amazing feature: the number of craft. 5 different fighters? Hell, you saw twice that in the first mission! There were plenty of fighters: Z-95s, X-wings, B-Wings, Y-Wings, A-Wings, T/Fs, T/Is, T/Bs, T/Ds, then cooler stuff like Assault Gunboats (slow but heavily armed and armored), escort shuttles, and so on. Medium ships like different kinds of corvettes, frigates, cargo ships, Corellian YT freighters (like the Millennium Falcon) and of course a variety of capital ships: dreadnoughts, cruisers, carriers, several star destroyers. The list goes on and on and on.
It was followed up with "X-Wing vs TIE Fighter", a strictly multiplayer version, then by "X-Wing Alliance" which had another (Rebel) campaign and custom mission capability. Neither game had the iMuse system, and they lost a lot of what made TIE so memorable. Then came games like Rogue Squadron, which was basically an arcade game as far as I'm concerned. 3rd person and no fighter simulation. Just a shoot 'em up. For those who came of age with this game, I'm sorry, but I just don't see the appeal. After a time, you couldn't even play TIE Fighter anymore, at least not without a lot of fiddling. I got DOSbox to properly do it...sort of. But every time I turned off my computer it would somehow forget all the settings and I'd have to reinstall it every time I wanted to play. It wasn't worth the trouble.
Then GOG, then Steam, got the original versions. If I wanted to play TIE Fighter, I could. It was rejiggered to work with modern systems. And while I still enjoyed it, I confess it lost some of its allure. It's held up remarkably well, but it obviously shows its age. It's like looking at the Colosseum: still majestic, but also very, very run down.
Eventually, we got Starfighter Assault, a mode for SWBF. Fun, but still not even close to the grandeur of playing the original TIE FIGHTER for the first time. Don't get me wrong, the graphics are amazing. The sound is realistic. But it's...just...not....the...same. For the last ten years, every once in a while I'd do a Google search to see if anyone was trying to remaster TIE Fighter. Once in a while I'd find some like minded person, but nothing you could bite into.
And now, STAR WARS SQUADRONS appears.
I've seen many subs on this talking about what people want to see. I read what the designers have had to say, and some of it is promising. But I have this feeling that it's just going to be a dog fighting simulation, and Star Wars has so much material to draw from now, that the variety and spice of TIE is going to be lost. There aren't going to be an assortment of craft, where you see a modified Nebulon frigate for the first time and go "Wow! That's different than the movies!" and rather than reaching for something like an assault gunboat, it's just going to be shoehorned variations of what's been in Rebels or any of the current tie-in canon stuff.
It's going to be visually breath-taking, I'm sure. I'm afraid that with its need to tie (no pun intended!) into the more well known current media (Rebels, Clone Wars, etc) it's going to lose the sense of wild surprise that TIE had. And, it might try to appeal to everyone, and throw in all the things that make competitive online multiplayer so unappealing to me: button mashing, a unique meta where you can essentially "game" the system by playing a certain way, hacking/cheating ability (which you sadly see a lot more than you should in SWBF2), or certain "builds" which are just so superior to others in customization that you have no choice but to all play the same. And, it will just be a space shooter sim, without any variety to missions or anything else. (These five fighters play tug of war to destroy a capital ship. Rinse. Wash. Repeat).
Maybe it won't. Obviously I don't know. I'm hopeful, I really am. I want to see a modern successor to what is, still to this day, one of the greatest PC games of all time. But there's a lot more to it than just putting a coat of Star Wars paint on a space shooter.
Here's to hoping they realize that, and let 38 year old me be just as starstruck and amazed as 12 year old me.
A Post-Mortem on Star Wars Battlefront.
2005, That was the year the last home console and PC Star Wars Battlefront game came out. Soon after the developer, Pandemic, would be bought by EA and eventually be shut down. For several years after LucasArts shopped around the next Battlefront game to several developers, most famously (or infamously) Free Radical Games. There are conflicting stories as to why their game wasn’t finished. Some say it was LucasArt’s fault. They put too much pressure and gave FRG unrealistic timetables. Others say it was Free Radical. They were overambitious; they couldn’t get their signature feature, seamless ground to space, working at an acceptable level, and so on. Regardless despite rumors and leaks for years and years, it wasn’t until Disney bought LucasFilm and Star Wars that anything could happen. Disney licensed out the Star Wars brand for console and PC games to EA. DICE petitioned EA to make Star Wars Battlefront, a match made in heaven as the original Battlefront games were explicitly based on Battlefield 1942. At E3 2013 DICE officially announced Star Wars Battlefront for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. On November 17, 2015 the game finally came out. This is an examination of what DICE got right and what they got wrong. This is coming from someone who played thousands of hours of the original games (online too) and hundreds of hours of the new game.
The Good (more good than bad):
The gunplay and core gameplay. Battlefront, at its core, is a simple game. It isn’t meant to be a hardcore multi-level competitive shooter. It isn’t even meant to be on the realistic side of arcade gameplay like Battlefield or Call of Duty. It is purely arcade. The gameplay is all about mobility and map control, not damage numbers and bullet drop. Battlefront gives no accuracy bonuses for aiming down the sights (or zooming at most guns don’t have sights), crouching, or standing still. Your blaster bolts will always go the same place whether you are strafing, standing, or firing from the hip. The blasters all have simplistic recoil patterns if they even have recoil at all. This makes for a very uniform and predictable experience, which in my opinion is a good thing. There are also no customization options for the guns. No attachments and no camos, this is also a good thing as attachments add an unnecessary layer to most shooters and tend to go overboard, just look at modern Call of Duty or modern Battlefield. The core gunplay and gameplay is something I don’t want DICE to touch for the sequel.
Heroes: Starting with Star Wars: Battlefront II Heroes have become an integral part of Battlefront. Being able to play as or fight alongside a hero from your faction is an amazing experience. While the omission of a handful of heroes like Ben Kenobi, Yoda, Tarkin, and Veers was unfortunate, the heroes that were in the game from launch and added as DLC were done well and were great additions to the game. Coming face to face with Vader or Luke really gave an “oh shit” moment. The heroes themselves weren’t as overpowered as feared they could be, a team working together could take them down quickly.
Atmosphere: Regardless of what you feel about some of the maps in the game you can’t deny that DICE is a master of atmosphere and made it really feel like you were participating in a Star Wars battle. The sights and sounds mixed beautifully to make a wonderful experience; hearing the Imperial announcer chiding you for failure, or having that classic Star Wars music swell up during a tense fight really brought home the experience of being in Star Wars like no other.
The Bad (more bad than good):
DLC: The DLC plan for this game was atrocious. Some of the worst implementation of the tired and broken Season Pass system I’ve ever seen. Despite really enjoying two out of the four DLC packs (Bespin and Death Star were amazing), the method of which the DLC was released really sucked. Not only was the playercount not uniform (6v6, 16v16, 12v12, 16v16) but there was no way to play more than one DLC pack at a time. No custom servers and no Season Pass Playlist segregated the DLC to the point where you can’t find a game on the first pack that easily. The Season Pass paid map system needs to die.
Vehicles: There were not enough. Yes, there are no canon ground vehicles for the Rebels in the films, but they could have been drawn from elsewhere. There weren’t enough types of fighters, and when more were added they were AI wingmen only. This also extends into the pickup system. While I don’t have a great aversion personally to tokens for vehicles, I also would not mind seeing them return as empty vehicles on the map. Also, the powerups need to go. They added a level of randomness that was annoying and disruptive to the flow of gameplay.
The Ugly (equally good and bad):
The Maps: Most of the large maps were built around Walker Assault, so they were fairly linear with chokepoints spread out evenly. Half the time they did not work well in other modes, though there are about half that are really good on multiple modes. Maps for small modes worked will with some modes and worked poorly with others, there was generally an overabundance of chokepoints.
The Modes: DICE really tried to make Battlefront a jack of all trades with the various modes in the games, this was a mistake. Walker Assault was advertised as the main mode, but it was only on four maps at launch (expanded to 7 with free DLC and 11 with paid DLC). The other two large ground modes took a backseat to Walker Assault in map design and suffered as a result. The small modes weren’t equal either. The stark differences in how a mode with Heroes vs. Villains and a mode like Cargo played meant that they didn’t work equally on every map.
Unlocks: I appreciate how scaled-down the unlocks were compared to other modern shooters, everything that isn’t cosmetic was available for unlock via credits by level 32 (out of 50 initially and 100 by DLC 4). I do think however that it was still too much. The credit cost of many unlocks and upgrades contributed to a grind, which while not as bad as Battlefield or Call of Duty, was still too much. The addition of Hutt Contracts (akin to Assignments in Battlefield) was unwelcomed. It encouraged unusual gameplay and made it that much harder to play.
What I want to see in the sequel.
What I want is simple; to see the sequel be built directly on the strong foundation they laid with the first game. Keep the core gameplay and gunplay the same. I’d like to see a reduction in game modes. I want them to focus on a core handful of modes like bringing back traditional Conquest, Walker Assault, Fighter Squadron, Hero Blast (a prototype mode that plays like Hero Assault from SWBF2), Blast (TDM), Domination, and Capture the Flag. I want them to keep the playercounts uniform. All large modes should be 20v20 (or as high as they can make it without compromising a perfect 60fps on base consoles), and all small modes should be 10v10 (or maybe 8v8). I want Fighter Squadron to be a full large mode with no bots. I want the maps to reflect these modes more equally. Make them less linear with less chokepoints while making sure there is plenty of cover in open areas and a rationale to capture point locations. I also want to see them take more from the new EU like Rebels and the comics (which DICE has said they are doing!) to add new vehicles and new heroes (like Maul and Ahsoka!).
I want them to focus on the Original Trilogy with a side dish of the Sequel Trilogy (at least until the hopeful third game, then make them equal). Don’t bother with the Clone Wars. I want to see weapon and gadget unlocks done away with completely. Have everything available from the start but make players work for cosmetic unlocks. Finally, I want paid maps to go away. Maps should be free to everyone. Maybe make modes, weapons, and cosmetics paid. For example, let’s say in this game that was the case, everyone would get the Death Star maps for the standard modes, but if you wanted to play the signature mode of the DLC, Battle Station, or if you wanted the Death Star themed skins, Death Star themed Heroes, or the new weapons and gadgets you would need to pay. In this scenario I’d like to see the price of the Season Pass drop to $30 instead of $50, but who knows how realistic that is with EA?
I think DICE did well with Star Wars Battlefront, but they didn’t do stellar. I do enjoy the game consistently, despite occasional bitching about The Bad and The Ugly. I find the core gameplay and the atmosphere addicting. I just hope that DICE can only improve from here on out and I really hope the higher ups at DICE don’t make the same mistake of reducing the Battlefront team to a handful of people before all of the DLC is even finished (less than 15 people put together Death Star and Scarif, and it shows unfortunately). I know opinions on this game are deeply divided and a lot of people like to shit on it because it doesn’t seem to fit their nostalgia of the old games, or because it didn’t include Clone Wars, or because it didn’t have a robust singleplayer (not to worry, the sequel will have a campaign by Motive with DICE supervising!). I still think it is a fun game and deserves a sequel.
