C&C rip off is a bit harsh, the first game had some very nice ideas & I really like the new stuff in the demo, esp the mercs units, though wasn't happy when the money ran out and they cleared off

demo is hard but not impossible, there are quite a few enemy tanks that can be captured, once you have them it's easy to hold off attacks and start exploring.

I liked the hammy FMV acting hope there's plenty more in this.

took me a while to get into AOW but really enjoyed it, new units the demo are nice too.

no one ever promised H&D2 co-op in a patch.

multiplayer modes are...

"objective" (two teams, one tries to complete objective while other tries to stop)

"Occupation" fighting over territory

and Deatmatch, you play as Axis or Allies

Co-op is included for new missions in Sabre Squadron.

not many play, but enough, it's not very realistic, more arcade, but good fun

SP was very good and not buggy at all from waht I remember, cheating (flying) & tking was big problem in multi, is why I gave up but it was no worse then amny other games, I think it became very popular online......

"if you were an admin, you had to get a *consensus* (via a VOTE) to get someone off your server. what kinda COMMIE crap is that?"

is feature, not bug

I didn't have any big problems with Vietcong (apart from copy protection slwodown) dont think it was "buggy" game at all. But then lots say Mafia was buggy, didnt have trouble with either

not hyping games is odd thing to do in market dominated by hype imo, you have to get gamers interested by showing them screens/movies, that's why everyone knows Call of Duty.. why have just one screen... whats the point???

and games like HD2 probably sell by word of mouth...

anyway 9 mission co-op is great news

so everyone who disagree with you is fanboy? *rolleyes*

I know HD2 has it's problems and is not million selling popular game like COD/MOH/BF, but small community is on the whole friendly, there are no cheats to worry (moan)about

if you took game back you wont know what server situation now.... is true it's not much different from release in numbers but who cares, I can always find good server when I want so why should I worry how many it sold??

millions doesn't always mean better, look at Delta Force BHD, that was s**t

HD2 was never going to be big multi, it was made 1st as SP game, games like MOH, COD are aimed most at online gamers and have v short scripted SP campaign, you're not comparing like with like.

its just preference, I thought MOH/COD are dull on & offline %), lots of player but not my thing, HD2 has enough servers to play whenever I want, makes no big difference if there are 1000 or 10.

dont know about H&D2 being flop, seems unlikely they would fund addon if it did so bad

stuttering movies maybe hardware, if vertical Synch isn't enabled in setup try enabling it.

H&D2 SP is very good, much better than usual dull on rails stuff of last few years (COD, MOH etc), Multi is good but still very buggy, last patch made it worse.....

although H&D had to do with a bunch of fictional SAS operations where as BiA sounds as if it is a depiction of actual infantry operations with you as a small unit leader.

H&D2 is fictional, but based on what the SAS were doing in WW2. Call me cynical but for all the gloss it's probably going be more game than simulation, basing it on actual events isn't going to make it seem any more real...

expecting it to look and play like COD, AI led buddies, lots of scripting, very movie (Brothers in arms) like.

as much as I want it to be a "real" tactical squad game, I'm not convinced by the blurb, heard it all before, the consultants dont seem to add much other than a level of authenticity to keep the history nuts happy.

run & gun sells, that's what this looks like to me (under all the waffle) hope I'm wrong, dont like COD.

Surprised more people arn't excited about this. Yes, there have been a ton of WWII games. However they have all been straight up shooters in a WWII setting, not a simulation."

*cough* HIdden & Dangerous 2" *cough*

it'll probably stick to what sells most and rely more on scripting and movie like atmos than a squad game with tactics, Serious Sam with a BAR.

yawn.

not modified Mafia engine, Mafia = LS3D, Vietcong uses Pterodons own engine.

Don't know about Vietcong, all I've seen so far is a reasonable multi demo that has been taken over by cheating, tking and registry hacks. Will wait and see about the rest, but what I've seen so far looks pretty good.

As for LOS I finished the SP game yesterday (I think it's better to do that before slamming a game as "cheap" & "rip off ) and enjoyed every minute of it, the jungle setting is far better than anything else I've seen.

is a shame some ppl get so blinkered by a strange loyalty to one game, but that's their loss, LOS is an execllent game & great value.

the music is original, by the devs music engineer Petr Mores, is inspired by Hendrix but not a direct copy of anything he did.
