Now that the game is officially out (For some of the world) - well, the time is now to make a thread. For the record, I'd likely be more classified as a CoD guy than a BF guy - by far. I have more play time in MW2 alone than in the BF series as a whole.
I will go ahead and say it for those who don't have it yet - but -
Yes, it is good. As of right now, I would say (I'm not completely done with the SP, 10 out of 13 missions done) -
Best FPS experience since CoD4. It doesn't have the drama behind it that CoD4 - I'll admit that. However, the gameplay itself - the shooting, the movement, the destruction - is just beyond comparison. Not to even mention the graphics absolutely are amazing - I have found myself wandering the desert just looking at stuff. It's outstanding - though weapon detail is a bit lacking compared to CoD.
It's FUN, not stress. I've yet to have the mission that EVERY FPS game has - the one that you just hate to have to do because the mission flat sucks. "Heat" from CoD4 comes to mind, as does the Favela from MW2. I've yet to be angry at the game - unlike playing through MW2 for the first time. There hasn't been a "OMG! I don't want to do this crap again" after you die by some random guy stabbing you. None of the "Checkpoint! Crap, dead. Respawn to checkpoint you died at a second later the first time".
MP on the 360 is a bit bugged right now - basically one combo of map and mode boots you to the dashboard, but it should be fixed soon. Outside of that, it's a riot. Conquest mode is frantic - VERY frantic. A good team can dominate as it properly should. It's been lag free across the board. Shockingly, I havent seen the "Recon Spam" as much in the full version (Where entire teams were all recon), which is very good.
Honestly, I'd give it a 9.5 out of 10 if I had to write a review. For sure, it is a MUST buy. This game, honestly, is so much better to MW2 as of right now it is silly - not being biased. MW2 is, well, will be a VERY good game if IW fixes it - that is my take.
I'd highly recommend it. If you think a BF game will move to slow and be no fun for you, try it. The game in Conquest mode MP wise moves so insanely fast it's not even funny.
So, after that little mini review that lacks info and ratings, who else plans on playing a load of BC2, and what do you think about it? And if any of you 360 guys would be intrested, Im down for Squadding up if you are.
BTW, PC Players, I hear it is better optimized in the full version for more steady and higher framerates.
