Simply brilliant. Maps are huge, well thought out and diverse. Personal favourite map is 'Seine Crossing' which, has the feel of WWII street fighting to it especially when battered about a bit. Writing from experience, you can get killed very easily just wandering about sight seeing. The graphics, due to the blue icons, look more GRAW than BF2 which, is not a bad thing. Made me feel at home. The various AA options and friendly air cover have put a stop to the 'copter domination of BF2. The air side of things normally fight amongst themselves and leave the grunts alone. You even have spawns that start on carriers and beach assaults!

I'm waiting for the slackers that I run with to get the game so that I can try out the Co-Op. Hopefully, it will be as good a the MP side of things.

I really can't find much wrong with the game thus far.


@Zebb. And the guns are the right way round this time :rocky:

Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

Same here... A couple of the maps are a little tight but they're still 100x better than Nowhere or Headquarters. I was in a couple of absolutely insane firefights on The Paris Metro map on Conquest around the center flag. That's a really well-designed area and while it's technically "linear" there's still plenty of room for multiple squads to maneuver.

Feeling sry for a lot of people out there right now for not being able to play the game, from multiply issues. Hope they fix all in a speedy manner.

All has been near flawless my side so far. Probably a first for me. <_<

SP has been really good, not far off the finish. Looks fantastic overall. Yeah it is a generic run forward trigger, kill. But some nice moments, and I like the story so far. The sounds, maybe with my new headset, are the nicest touch for me, I think graw sounds back in the days gave that same wow feeling. Run SP with Ultra settings, averaging 50 FPS now.

MP well not really into it, but I played some games so far. It is a huge world out there, lot of strange maps. Going to play some more of this for sure. Fun having the vehicles in there, I like nothing more than annoying and killing the tanks. Had a littlebird maybe fly over with a MG gunner firing at me. Crouched, pointed at the gunner and fired, he fell out and hit the dirt, awesome.

Maps look awesome, really enjoying the atmosphere on all I have tried so far. I was running high settings in MP with FPS of around 75. Switching to medium I see hardly anything to cry about. Still a very good looking game.

Tried the Sparta server last night, but seems it is just an infintry only server? Have to check if they run a full game mode, but was fun. Hope we can get a gr.net server running soon. Think this will be a very popualar game.

For those with issues... check the warning at the top of battlelog and follow the link to download the punkbuster updates.

A few clanmates of mine had issues from the cd version (not bought through origin) and this cleaned them up.


I'm losing a lot of sleep playing this game... i lose track of time...
Hope i don't oversleep work this week :)

Having a blast though!

Battlelog update for tonight

We are updating our servers





By: zh1nt0 Posted: 5 hours ago 823 comments


Hello everyone!

Itīs sunday night over here at the office. Itīs cold and dark outside but inside one of the nicest buildings located in the heart of Stockholm, sits a team that is working on updates. We at DICE are rolling out a new server update and of course, we are posting the change log to you.

For users, this means that you donīt need to update your client since this is a server side update.


- Fix for crashes usually occurring during level switches. Server providers may see a little bit of memory leakage instead in this situation

- Game servers should no longer quit in some situations where the online backend servers are down. Server will reconnect to the backend once it's up again

- Fix for ghost servers which didn't accept connections

- Kick reasons should better match situations where they are issued. This will help battlelog provide more accurate information to the player

- Connection fixes to avoid players sometimes being rejected while joining the game server on one of the last slots

- Security updates

- Improved server logging

I think I played on Legion of Sparta, because I figured it was in Tennessee?
There was an intense firefight at some tight hallway/market ... that was some intense firefight.
Then some beach assault landing "ala Saving Private Ryan .........
I really need to start remembering names of maps, besides Metro and Caspian....
I added that server to my favorites.

We have reduced the vehicles cos that was the majority view, this may not be permanent we will suk it and see I guess. We would welcome opinion on this from anyone here even if you don't post at our forums we read GR.NET.

I am still not sure about this game, graphically it is just awesome but I'm having issues hearing ppl around me I'm not sure if the directional sound is as good as GRAW is and this bothers me.

The coop bit surpisingly is my fav part so far.

My experience with the sound in GRAW was pure SP

After playing SP and MP in SimHQ Server today, I would vote now on "Sound Better than GRAW"

Played Thunder Run Mission and I was blown away on how heavy, metallic, bass-sy the whole experience was

Fortunately, I was able to bring that SP experience to MP, when I had the opportunity to roll two tanks into the opposing team. Not sure if the other tank crew had prior military background, but he knew the advantages and disadvantages of a tank in specific areas of Caspian Map.
He too was patient not to rush I to an opponent's map.
We peppered that map with our main gun and coax, while team soldiers rushed flanking.
It was an awesome sight and sound.

I can see why you guys really love playing MP
