Those are the type of moments that got me hooked on the BF series back in 05', although that is pretty tame to the stuff I have seen over the years.

Still, I can't wait.

This is exactly the reason why I keep coming back to BF. The sensation of storming a building full of baddies with your friends, shit exploding left and right, making decisions that wipe out half the opponents. There is no game that can come even close to what BF does for me.

Hopefully the choppers still have a place in the game, by far the most fun you can have in a vehicle.

Amazing stuff.... Yeah, i really hope the choppers are still in, and fighter jets tbh.
I guess it depends on how large the maps are. But by far, the most fun i've ever had in a Battlefield game was on the El Alamein map. Huge open desert, two opposing bases, jeeps, infantry, tanks, choppers, jets. Amazing.

There are multiple helos (including blackhawks) but no jets.

Well that looks like tons of fun

YAY! Have you guys seen the gametrailers walk-through? You can tag stuff with markers to communicate where to attack. Nice. The drone stuff is sweet as well. I also like how the guy sticks the C-4 on the support beams in the building and collapses it on top of the guys diffusing the charge. This is my MOST anticipated game for next year! ...

console version looks awful...how can anyone play this game without 4X AA and v-sync on? Will wait for the superior version XD

I know it's weird, but even though I can play any game maxed on my PC, I still prefer to play on my 360. I guess it feels more natural because the mouse is too acurate and fast. It seems strange in a more realistic shooter like Battlefield, IMO. Of course, I also like my couch and surround system on my 42" LCD...

Same with me. It's rare I play anything multiplat on my PC. My pc is basically for Crysis and Civ 4 (game I play more than any other).

All of my best friends that game are on XBL so I have the most fun online gaming that way. Plus, like Frozpot, I like couch/LCD/blaring surround sound effect of console gaming. I'm far too lazy to hook my PC up to all that when I wouldn't want to keep it there.

That being said, if a lack of 4xAA and v-sync can really ruin your gaming experience THAT much I feel sorry for you and how many great yet ugly games you are missing out on. Poor bastard...

You're right.. that is strange :P Too accurate and fast? Battlefield... realistic? What?
Commented on 2009-11-21 03:29:13
woohoo it looks absolutely fantastic, fully destrucible buildings this time round though, could it lead to completely flat maps?

Day one purchase for me!

Based on what I've seen from the BETA - bearing in mind that I don't have a PS3 to play it on - this has the potential to knock MW2 off its perch. Sure, it won't get anywhere near the popularity, hype or publicity that IW's shooter has received, but in terms of quality I'd say BC2 very much rivals it.

What? No it doesn't.
Commented on 2009-11-21 04:14:17
Looks like Modern Warfare with destructibility and vehicles. Read: potentially very awesome. Sadly, it just won't have the deep community MW2 will have for a long time.

The image quality does look pretty rough.. I think horrible is a pretty huge overstatement though.
Commented on 2009-11-21 06:05:28
After playing the beta a couple hours today, I have to say that while really fun, it just doesn't seem to add up to the experience i've been having with MW2. Of course I don't have much unlocked so that isn't a fair comparison I know.

I think (hope) the full game delivers as much as it has the potential to. I'm having fun with it, but not as much as I was hoping. Let's hope that's just b/c it's only one map.

Same here mate. Nothing can beat huge screen with powerfull sound. I couldnt care less for playing it on PC just for better gfx. Couch playas ftw xD

I mean how you have to lead your targets, the destruction in the environment, and the speed of movement. The weapons feel real( even if they are tweaked for balance), and your character and weapons have weight. Mouse aim is good for accuracy, but is all arcade. If you'd ever had to fire a real weapon, you know what I'm talking about- Especially if you are moving. Some of the major reasons I like battlefield more than COD...

That still doesn't explain how aiming with thumb sticks feels more natural. A pointer is more fluid, responsive, and natural... and it doesn't matter if the game is "more realistic."

But if that's your preference more power to you.

On PC it will, considering how poor MW2's numbers are and how badly matchmaking sucks for PC.

Personally I think AA and v-sync are a waste of time.

A higher resolution gives you a way better picture for potentially less of a performance loss (not to mention AA's quality often depends on the implementation).

V-sync is a catch-22, if you have a good PC, v-sync is pointless since you wont get tearing anyway (so you may as well leave it off to get maximum FPS), but if you have a bad PC, v-sync just makes it run worse. Pretty much redundant either way IMO.

Really looking forward to this, DICE are mad kents. I'm upgrading all my hardware for the occasion xD
Commented on 2009-11-22 05:08:45
That's not really true, unless you might be using a CRT monitor with high refresh rates.
In fact, the better your computer the more tearing you are likely to experience without v-sync.
