    played this last night i was host and held 7+me with no lag :thumbsup:
    the limit of 8 on a english server is not a problem as you can all go on the same team ,that was great fun :clap:
    after only one night this has gone to the top of my live list of games my only moan is no live3 support

    What's this game like? I'm not a fan of Star Wars, will this affect my enjoyment of this game? What's it similar to?

    not played anything like this before on live it is a bit of halo and unreal i think would be the closest sort of game
    it is very fast paced not to everyone's liking but you get on a good server and you cant really beat it but im a big fan of star wars so not the best to ask :D

    Really starting to enjoy it now - having fun with the probe droids and the obital satalite laser cannons you can use with it. Also great fun using the timebombs that the wookiees have - just creep up on someone and stick it to there back....beep....beep....beep....BOOM!! :laugh:

    Only just got hold of a copy today - PC version though.

    Really does come into its own when played online. The funny thing is I hadn't really done my homework on this title and assumed it would be a RTS. I was very pleasantly surprised when I booted it up to find that I'd got a starwars version of BF1942 :smashin:

    Thinking about this. Might be a bit of fun before Halo 2 main event. What are peoples thoughts worth getting ? Opinion seems a bit mixed at the moment.
    We really need fifa 2005 and Halo 2 for live. There really is very little worth playing on there at the moment.

    Its pretty good. Not played it alot so far but its enjoyable and the graphics are good. Not 100% sure with whats going on all the time!! but i'll get the hang of it. Played it once for about 20mins on 'live', no lag to speak of but not much chatter, or maybe it was just the server i was on, so overall a solid 7/10

    So how many players can play on one server on the XBOX and how many on the PC. On the play.com website it says 1-32 players online then below it says 1-16 players .. now I read in this thread on english servers its 1-8 ? If this is the case then perhaps I need to get it for the PC - I love massive battles !!

    Xbox version can have upto 24 human players plus a load of AI bots But the host will need a T1 connection to handle that. On our Uk Broadband (256k upload) we can host 8 human players plus AI bots. There are alot of servers running with more though just do a optimatch serch and make sure you join a server with a good speed ie it should have green bars 5 bars is the best.

    So even with a 1.5mb connection (downstream) Im limited to hosting 8 players - dam ... I might still get it (if I can find it anywhere) and give it a blast - as long as there are plenty of servers out there with uber matches (okay +16 players)

    See you all on the dark side !
