Have you tried turning all the settings up, Ant? The graphics are actually quite nice once you enable all the bells and whistles. Or at least, compared to when I first started playing the game about five years ago.

To be honest, I just recently unsuscribed to the game (after said five years). The game is very slow-paced, and with the gigantic front that the war is fought on coupled with not exactly the largest playerbase in a MMOG, most battles in any one area seem to be comprised of no more than a dozen fighters on either side. Not a "battle" at all, but rather just little skirmishes here and there. And when a place does heat up, all the good toys have already been "used up" and won't be available for another couple hours. This is one of those games where you can drive your tank around for two hours and never once see another tank. Since armored clashes were one of my biggest enjoyments in this game, this can be extremely frustrating.

There's some gameplay changes that are being made to the game to help out some of these difficulties, and it may be that some of my problems have already been addressed. If so, this would be a very fun game for anyone looking for a very realistic simulator to get into. You won't find any hitpoints in this game, it's completely down to penetration mechanics. Getting shot is bad, one bullet is all it takes to kill you. Which tends to suck with the slow gameplay, but...

I was expecting to enjoy this, but geez the graphics are horribly outdated. Worse than Half-Life 1 graphics. Ick!

FP, are you trying to convince yourself that the US isn't broken by focusing on a tiny spat going on in a tiny part of Paris? That'd be sad.


Go to Paris. They are arrogant cunts. I had a beggar in my face in Paris who was dressed better than I was. He had his hand in my face and I just shrugged and looked pitiful. He just shrugged back and laughed to his friends. They walked away but one of the girls came back and pushed a pamphlet into my hand.

It appeared to be for a home heating oil company.

I'll never forget that.

No matter how hard I try.

The game's taken huge strides since it was released. After getting sick of WoW, FFXI and even Guild Wars, I gave this a try and loved it. Currently my favorite MMO.

Even since I joined up a couple months ago major additions have been made.

Now, that's not to say it's for everyone. But if the idea of a game with an unreleting devotion to realism and historical accuracy floats your boat.. or perhaps of an interesting tactical shooter with a view distance of 5-10km, with a fully-featured flight simulator and naval combat game built in strikes you as a great idea.. this is the game for you.
