I'd heard the campaign was a bit rubbish. Maybe if the price of this drops like the first one (£3.99 Digital Deluxe Edition), I'll take a look, but there's just too much that looks better, even as a pretty big Star Wars guy.

a few thousand hardcore gamers on reddit.

Heheh what about 750000 gamers on reddit? You probably know this, but the post from their community support guy justifying the grind to unlock characters became the most downvoted post in reddit's history, to the tune of -750000.  :D

Insane, awesome and terrifying all at the same time.

That'll be robots, then. There's no way that's all organic downvotes.

An odd side story is people moaning about those moaning, and using examples like 'GTA 5 has micro transactions'.  It also has a fairly sublime and technically impressive single player campaign, that I still played on even after finishing the story. I've since seen the transcript from EA's original shareholders conference call and talk about the pay structure they had blueprinted in to this game, and that has actually changed my opinion about if the shit was fully deserved.

I actually watched the live stream Xbox did with John Boyega (spelling) the other day, it was pretty hilarious seeing them wade through hundred of 'how much did JB have to pay to unlock that' sort of heckling and be like 'We've got a question here on how you got into acting'.
