I was reading an article on this game in Computer Gaming Wo- I mean Games For Windows magazine and was surprised at how many times the developers talked about how "they wanted this" or "they thought this was more fun". That doesn't necessarily mean this game is going to suck, but it was quite the contrast with Valve's comments on Team Fortress 2 (and most of their other games) where they talked about concern for the gamers experience and actual play testing to determine what was most fun.

reading that article, really makes it seem that EA or DICE truly have no clue as to what their customers want.
Now I know why they make endless sequels to the games that do sell - out of pure luck it seems a game will sell so they want to repeat that success, because originality or even knowing what customers want is not part their business plan.
Its random success.... sigh..

EA need to employ me as a lead game designer !
