They so stole the reward system from Call of duty 4 ! Fine by me, because that was one thing that kept me playing Cod4 online.

What's about the face mapping feature using the live vision cam. Is it still included in RS Vegas 2 ?
No word about it yet....

Speaking of Call of Duty 4, am i the only one that noticed they had a "sprint" feature also? :- )

It doesn't look much better than R6V to be honest... Though probably the game wasn't a priority for Ubisoft an the most skilled programmers have been working on Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell. I'm going to buy it regardless as I missed COD4 and I want to play the next online multiplayer shooter everyone else will play.

I loved the single/multiplayer play of RB6Vegas... although it doesn't standup to COD4 graphically at all. Hopefully the gameplay will be improved in the sequel. It was already a righteous game IMO, but it could use some help in the "looks" department.

Looks slightly better than the first, bought on release!

they learned from the fans and hopefully have fixed the flaws like random spawning enemies in terrorist hunt, the visuals look nicer imo, and new weapons are expected, nice to be able to see your exp progress in game, also add all that talk about destructible cover and bullet penetration and you got one hell of a game... so what if theyve went the route of cod4 regardless of what anyone think i still think rb6 vegas is better than cod4, firing the weapons in cod4 feels so unrealistic and its as if theres no real big difference in firing the guns other than fire rate. did u see that small clip of the guy actually sprinting, man that is awesome, and seeing as the cod series is going back to ww2 instead of some other era like vietnam i dont care too much anymore especially since hells highway will shame all ww2 era games once it graces the 360, and ps3. rb6 ftw

first one wasn't good.

About the game

What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks I didn't understand why he played so poorly either though. Subasic has been amazing the rest of the tourney. A big reason they won against Denmark and Russia (3 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks @MrWhite: I agree. Penalty like that shouldn't happen in a WC final. Croatia's keeper was screened for almost all of those goals, aside from the deflection (3 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Melmoth: oh god, that is amazing. the sounds and visuals are insane for a sim. (3 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @droezelke: For both them? Mbapp was 20 odd yards out. His positioning was shite. Should never have let that one past him. (4 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke If FIFA didn't object so long to get a VAR, the concept could have been bug-fixed 10 years ago. (5 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (5 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke Then the shot came and as he tried to correct to the right, he was leaning on the wrong leg and went out of balance. (5 Hours ago)
