It's looking really good !! I'm starting to like this game, but only buying until the price drops to 30€. This and the other dozens of quality games coming out this fall...

I'll certainly buy this game before I get Modern Warfare 2 or Battlefield BC and such.

best looking shooter this gen, from my point of view...

I think this looks exciting...Realistic shooters have sort of gone the way of the 2D fighter—not popular, but when they're made, they have a hardcore following because they're often very good.

In fact, the vehicles move better in this trailer than in many of Codemasters' racing games!

i hope the helicopters easy to fly.. the one in bad company was a nightmare.

Surprised theres no planes

I doubt that...this is like a simulator compared to Bad Company. Helis will be harder do control I think...

Probably because the inclusion of planes would compromise realism. Witnessing F-16's or F-18's doing U-turns in the sky in other games, maybe the absence of planes in OFP2 is not such a bad thing.
