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...

Surprised theres no planes
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.

    GriftGFX I'm surprised that performance still matters to you now that the X1X is around lol (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I'd say that most "normal people" would find that performance at this spec beyond acceptable. (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Translation: If DOOM is already running well on hybrid portable (in portable mode) what chance does their next game have of performing even better? I'd say those chances are pretty good, actually. (7 Hours ago)

    KORNdog @MrWhite: if doom is running 560p, with lower res textures and reduced effects at 30fps what chance is there a game on the same engine is going to fair any better? (11 Hours ago)
