This is for anyone who didn't play it:
I played it to death and absolutely love it. The Caspian border map was brilliant, it felt like Battlefield 2. The map was virtually bug free and I got no lag (the server I played on was 29 ping). I have just read about the other maps and the ones to get exited about for me are the city based maps. I hope they do Mashtur City at some point.
I was playing on ultra settings with no drop in FPS. It does however need a seriously meaty PC, oh and I checked while playing and it's the only game I have ever seen that used more than 4gb of RAM (apart form Crysis but that was only the Mothership fight at the end) so it's a good job I got 8GB of Corsair Vengence in my new rig.
I think this game will suite us in HC mode, the vanilla mode was HC enough if yo know what I mean. Some of the later unlocks, like the sniper scope for assault rifles (yea you heard me right) made the game far more enjoyable as you could headshot on auto from like a mile away!
The hit mechanic for me was brilliant, there was nothing vague about it like in BB:BC2. And the physics on the bullets and projectiles is spot on, next time you play check out the way the trees sway when a missile goes through it...remarkable.
THe game has so much potential, a single life, HC rush or DM mode wold be ideal for us. The small map, Metro felt like a more intelligent COD. Run round on your own like COD though and yo lasted 10 seconds. Team play is greatly rewarded and I especially like the "supression" xp you get. Basically if yor firing at someone and they either duck or run and then get killed you get XP. It makes the heavy weapons really useful as you can supress a group of enemies and get point if they die....genius!
I really can't wait.........I'm getiing trouser action just talking about it ! hahahahaha
See you noobs soon!
