the one thing i absolutely loved about this game was the sound design. That may seem kinda geeky but when you really listen to the game, its much more immersive. Sounds of explosions and echo's of your gun indoors is awesome. This is a much more intense game than MW2 imo. MW2 is a great game, but i think this game has it beat just by a hair.

Story kinda sucks in this game though, nothing like the MW series.
Multiplayer is sweet.

The first one was insanely fun especially with the Desert Combat mod, but BF2 still takes the cake, glitches and all. Teamwork is still at its best in BF2, and the maps are better than those in all the other games.

I'm tired of COD. The first one for the PC was badass, second one was alright, and I haven't even bothered buying MW/MW2 or WaW.

imo:
BF2 > BF:BC2 > 1942 > 2142 > BF:BC > Vietnam >>> Heroes

The sounds are top notch.

That would rape the balance of this game. Snipers don't need to be any more annoying. Besides, everytime BF includes prone it leads to dolphin jumping shit.

Especially with the fkn LMGs. I can't hit shit with those because of the fact that they pull every which way from the standing or kneeling.

Maybe it's just my background in the Corps, but I can't take any FPS like this seriously without a prone position. Call it bitching or whatever, but I just can't seem to get past it.
I don't have a problem with the LMGs and their accuracy. They're more accurate than I was expecting. Rapid 2-3 shot bursts make you untouchable.

I'm talking about laying down suppressing fire. Normally with a LMG you have a bipod that allows you to empty a drum into a concentrated area using longer bursts (not just all at once, then your barrel would be fucked). I dunno.... I know that making snipers more effective is the last thing this game needs, but for a somewhat realistic FPS, it's going to take a lot of getting used to no prone. BUT, everything else in this game (besides normal bugs and tech issues typical at launch) makes it worth the compromise.

I'm glad there's no prone, never liked it in any other game.

although your right about the lmg cover fire part, but honestly how many peopel do you think will do that effectively, as opposed to proning all day and spraying.

You can add anything to a game to encourage teamwork, but if the team does not want to cooperate, nothing will make them.

Yeah like I said, I'm probably making a bigger deal of it than what it is; just RL sort of knee-jerk reaction to want to go prone.

Try the HK416 + 4x scope + weapon handling. I went back to the AN-94 after this setup (same gadgets) and hated it.

I also like the XM8 LMG + weapon handling. I found it to be more effective than the M60 which almost every medic uses.

Edit: handling should be meant as "specialization."

I actually started using the red dot with the An-94, so much better then the 4x. Theirs pretty much no recoil with it with the An-94. I'll be sure to give your setup a shot, I'm tired of seeing all those medics with the m60. Most of the time the rest of us don't stand a chance against it lol.

love this game. been playing the battlefield series long before the first call of duty came out. they both have their pros and cons but i find this game more fun then MW2.

playing it on PC is unreal. theres an audio mode called wartapes and the sound is just too realistic. im not sure how the console versions are but on the PC version, the characters? i guess you can say, say random shit that a real soldier would probably say in the same situation.

who would be interested in a BC2 montage? Kind of along the lines of my MW2 montage for those of you that have seen it.

I don't know why they did this, but they DEMO has been unavailable for play since late feb. I think they needed the server for full release traffic?

It's a shame because the only way to show people how/why you might want to play this instead of MW2 is to put the controller in their hands.

I guarantee if the demo was still live their sales would be higher. It can't be that expensive to keep running.

Haha you, me and almost everyone else. I usually just sit in the gunner seat and wait for someone to be the pilot. To bad the joy stick doesn't work with it for some reason. The best part is watching other people fly it and see them land upside down 2 seconds later lol.

Yep... flying the choppers is rough. I actually directed my UAV into a friendly Apache the other day and we both went down. Not good.

LOL, at the video. In fact an asshole team mate of mine did the same thing. He rammed into my chopper taking us both down. Never though it looked that funny.
