i was pretty damn surprised they were able to fix the titan lag bug - overall this BF seems the most polished

its kind of interesting to fly titans into each other, or within gun range of each other

plus the gfx are smooth looking now that i have a new card

but teh fun factor is just not really there for me, the whole "been there done that" vibe is stronger than anything the game has to offer... its just fucking boring to me at this point

Ya know. 2142 isn't bad. I'm not getting it. But it's not bad.

I still can't stand unlockables.

PC Zone UK has just printed their review of BF2142, and the verdict is 86%, a fair way short of the boot licking 95% they awarded to BF2.

Yeah, that really doesn't make any sense. Let's give the players that understand the game the best & who have memorized the layout of every map even more power.

It just seems like a terrible way to get new players into the game.

Dice/EA claim that the unlockables would not imbalance the game. They wouldn't lie to us, right?
Anyhow, in the beta, i didn't notice a huge difference with the unlocked crowd, hell, you gain your first unlocks so quick it doesnt appear to make a difference.

I used my regular assault rifle on both sides, the optical camo was cool, but typically used by retard kids and useless snipers (i believe they put that in the game to keep the moron crowd busy). The RDX is good, when you can get it to stick to the vehicle you put it on. The deployable turret was fucking horrible. The one thing I didnt get to use was the top tier unlocked heavy assault rifle, and i think i will try that path first. (if i can find the game for 35 bucks)

I still can't stand the reliance on the vehicles and will skip the huge/slow maps for the heavy infantry maps.

I also hate the musical silos game you play in public matches (2142 is not clan gaming material..too many hacks, bugs, glitches, so i play pub only)
I will welcome the directed firefights that QW will bring.

Not surprising, really -- none of the BF games have been bad (even BF:V had moments of greatness).

The games aren't bad, they can be a hell of a lot of fun, actually.

It's the support for them that absolutely sucks ass. And that's important to keep in mind, because they always need a lot of supporting..

I actually enjoyed the heck out of BF:V. There were just moments that were really amusing...like being in a tank somebody picked up in a helo...then being dropped...rolling and seeing sky, ground, sky, ground, sky, NVA soldier, sky...



While I'm at it, I think the saddest thing was with all the Mod support that BF1942 got, EA should have just released the expansion kit maps to that community (they weren't selling 'em anyway). There were some great maps on there.

The one thing I hated about the entire BF series was having to dump a magazine into somebody to off 'em. Or even shooting at tanks 3 or 4 times with other tanks.

Ah...Forgotten Hope.

I dug Vietnam too...I loved the radio part best. I liked following closely someone who had his radio on and I would put mine on a different station and create a mix of sorts.

Does BF:2112 allow you to be a long haul trucker and carry Space Debris from one location to another and be rewarded for your overall timeliness?

I had many a good time playing BFV. It really got a bad rap for whatever reason... At least the cone of fire in BFV was decent [even after they nerfed the M60], unlike BF2 and BF2142.

I like the unlock system, but I hate the standard 4 class's by themselves.

Like in the beta I played assault class until I unlocked the recon class's carbine rifle (which was nice cause I hate playing sniper). So that with my c4 charges and defibulator and cloak system I could act as a medic and special forces, and get to guys/commander toys undetected.

Elf:

While I too went the way of cloaked commanders-toys blower upper..
I found that in most public games, the commanders really dont know what they are doing, and i'm just wasting my time by blowing up stuff they never use.
I'm sure that's subject to change as people remember how to play correctly.

In fact, I never once played as a Commander in BF2 (did 1942 have that ability?) Anyhow, I really enjoyed doing it in the beta.. and will likely give it a shot tonight when i play.

Then again your playing the demo with millions of noobs. Like any online game you have the inital noob fest, and then they gets thinned out and ya get the hard core guys.

Thats what the favorite servers are for. I play on a select few servers that some pretty set rules. And if they get some idiot in the commander chair they ask them to step down and if they don't they kick them.

But a commander is only as good as his team and vice versa. And 95% of the games I've played in the BF2142 Demo have had no commanders. The other 5% have been great cause they are experienced commanders.

But as you said once people remember how to play the game instead of doing the 'I'm just here to try out X vehicle or X weapon' crap it'll get better.

I'm gonna go against everyone else and say I enjoy it and plan on getting a copy when it comes out. So far with the exception of 2 bugs and splash damage needing to be increased it's a pretty polished game.
