Yes, the reviews are very mixed. I'll be getting the pc-version to forget the absolute broken game Arma II.
It's a gameplay style you either love or hate. I love it. I'm not going to read any reviews about this game anymore. I'll make my own mind up tomorrow. See you on the battlefield.

This game is just coming out at the wrong time. With Uncharted 2, Forza 3, and MW2 coming out so soon, I don't see how I'll find time to get into a game like this. I don't understand why these guys release mid range games in the fall season to compete with games like Uncharted 2 or MW2. Just doesn't seem like a good idea. Oh well...

I'm sure I'll give it a go later when the price drops and I get tired of other games maybe.

I think this game has a very specific audience. The fans of the original and Arma, will surely pick this one up. Especially if you consider how broken Arma II and the support for the game is.

I know.. odds are this game could of shipped 2 weeks ago when there was nothing out and we were all waiting for september to end.

Same goes for borderlands hitting this month too.. surely to be ignored and picked up cheap in November

Mixed bag? I've been seeing this game get almost nothing but 7.5 and above from legitimate publications (leaning more towards 8s and 9s from the top websites and mags). Unless you think ~70% somehow equates to a "bad" score.

I loved arma and arma II but as people have said, they are pretty much broken, there's some superb moments to be had in both of them but almost always spoiled by some sort of laggy buggy event that just breaks the immersion.

If OFP 2 can offer a similar experience minus the immersion breaking broken 3d engine, be it on PC or 360 then they have my money. I just hope the PC version has support for Trackir and allows modding.

The higher scores seem to be mostly for the PC-version.

@Bramski: yes, it has been stated in a couple of reviews that the game is infinitely more polished than Arma II on the technological side. So no worries there.

PC-version: 16 vs 16. Console version: 4 vs 4 (and everyone has three AI partners)
Commented on 2009-10-06 20:08:19
Do you mean 4vs4 so it is 12v12 with the computer AI or its just 1vs1 + 3 computer driven players on each side?

No, it's 16vs16 (12 AI partners in total). Wiskunde man ;o)

Oopps :P, hmm i hope it works but why not a fcking 16v16 with only human players, this kinda suks. I probably rent it or something.

Why not go for the pc-version then? It has an editor as well.

Meh i dont really like pc gaming, i use the PC only for RTS games like AoE, and FM but thats it.
Commented on 2009-10-06 20:52:53 In reply to SchuddeBuikje
I used to be the opposite. I've been a gamer for over 25 years now and I basically skipped the whole xbox and PS2 generation in favour for PC gaming.

Now im kind of a hybrid gamer who will basically use whatever means necessary to get the best gaming experience, platform isn't an issue for me now, I'll even play games on my PC with the 360 pad if it offers a better experience than the 360, be it image quality of certain gameplay features.

Must admit, xbox live is getting really hard to beat these days, they've really nailed the mulitplayer experience.

4v4 with each of those players having a 3 AI team squad holds more potential i think...its not like any actual players going to follow orders you issue them.

true, yet this is what I want. perfect team-play. a utopia I guess?

Just like Far Cry 2 was better than Crysis (imo), i expect this to be better than ArmA2. Sometimes a change in devs (and a higher budget) is what a franchize needs.

Crysis is so much better than Far Cry 2. Far Cry 2 is boredom in a box after the first few hours.

I'm looking foward to the 4v4. I'm a bit tired of the ADD online experience. COD games are great. But after a certian point I feel like an insect, flying around the maps as fast as I can shooting at anything that moves.

That's why you don't play TDM in Call of Duty!

About the game

    alimokrane On a different subject all together. if only the entire world acted like this: [url] (9 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Gears 4 is a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, which is great if you loved Gears 3. @alimokrane: I'm partial to the Embar & Overkill. (22 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Phaethon360: I agree on the enemy variety, definataly but I simply love the little tricks and bits they added here and there. Best weapon has to be the DropShot. Ball of fun! (25 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (45 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz PhaeKO outta nowhere. Rod said he wanted to do it right before doing it different and 343 were the blueprint for this which is why a lot of the Gears community still remains intact. (47 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 That and the variety just isn't there. So many different enemy and weapon types in Gears 2, which was the high point of the series for me. Gears 3 wasn't bad but it was on the downswing for me. (52 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I really dislike Gears 4. Horde 3.0 was a disappointment, and the mechanics haven't changed much since Gears 1. After playing the remake so soon it just felt like more of the same. (53 minutes ago)
