agreed, the mounted combat is pretty good. the game is not very polished but that aspect of it is superb.

The same reason people read books set in modern times in the real world with characters in it who are similar to them. Some people can only identify with entertainment that is in their normal sphere of experience. in fact, thats true for the majority. Thats why hundreds of millions of people watch soap operas.

BF2 is nice, but I can play a whole round of COD4 domination in the time it takes BF2 to load a map. I load maps in 10 seconds on COD4, and about 120 seconds on BF2.
That alone means I never play BF2 now.

agreed. I'm a trekaholic, but even I wasn't excited by this game. why? because the money-grabbing scumbags made it federation only, with other races to follow in expansion packs.
Fuck that.
I wanted to be klingon, jem hadar or ferengi, but fuck the federation. its such a blatant money grab that it really put me off.

agreed 100% a big disappointment. I love the way if you don't pre-order, everyone get a 21 level head start on you.
what a crock of shit.

all management and simulation and turn based strategy games are spreadsheets. Underneath all the glitz you just have some data and some equations. There's nothing wrong with that. Some games try to hide it, some are more blatant. But it doesn't stop them being great games.

sometimes I suspect Derek is a very very clever marketing guy.
Think about it, we ALL KNOW that a Derek smart announcement will be funny, popular and full of great entertainment. I skim over a lot of blues news announcements about new games that don't immediately sound l33t, yet here I am, here we ALL are, talking about them.
Sometimes all publicity really *is* good publicity, especially if you are an independent and want to get noticed. It can backfire sure, but he is still around, still making games. I know he was around when I joined Elixir, and they have come and gone. I know he was around when I joined Lionhead, and now they are Microsoft... Companies come and companies go, but this guy is obviously still making a living.
He must be doing something right.

if only that were true :D.
Although I did find myself (when working on balancing the game) scrambling around before an election thinking "what's popular I can pass right now, to get some votes?". Explains a lot...

I didn't have any money for artists for the first one, so it looked a bit grim. This one is much better and the simulation is re-jigged and recoded so everything is generally much better. It's not a simple or casual game by any stretch though.
Anyway, this is the beauty of free demos :D.

haven't seen anyone cheat yet. 99.9% of cheat allegations are just n00bs encountering good players anyway.
what kind of twat cheats at a pc game anyway?

agreed 100%. but is there a demo in this case? it seems not. I hope the game dies a painful death, partly due to this corrupt bullshit, and partly due to them not having the guts to release a demo and be judged on the quality of the game.

ME! I can code. It will be l33t.

Seriously, if paramount just made the star trek brand free for use, there would be a ton of new games and projects out there which would enhance, not dilute their branding. They are nuts.
I'd do a DS9 space strategy game immediately.

I agree with you 100%. I bought this game anyway as the first was so awesome, and I was not disappointed at all. But a 2 gig demo is indeed mental. many people have traffic limits, and don't want to tie up their connection for a whole day just to download a demo they might not even enjoy much.

agreed, this is the best game of the year. all you people waiting for the kinks to be ironed out are just missing the best FPS ever made.
