    I've held off buying this as i played the Beta and thought it was just BF 2142, on a smaller scale.

    Graphics are not as WOW factor as everyone makes out and the maps are pretty linear, forcing you thru narrow corridors.

    I actually like MW2 now, (except for the fact it has really divided our clan) and i look forward to some new maps.

    On another note, there is a very good Star Wars mod out for CoD4 which is worth checking out, to squeeze a few more hours out of that fantastic game.

    MW2 has pretty much divided my clan so I'd be glad if it did the honourable thing and died.

    to be fair, its jsut as easy to set up private games, its just that for some reason this is not as organised as having your own server etc.

    Problem with private games and especially for clan matches are the playing fields are never even due to prestige etc.

    BF2 hopefully will pick up the scrimming mantle from CoD4, you know CoD series in trouble when Codleague - Call of Duty League - Sponsored by GamingDeluxe COD 4, COD 5 News decide to start running BC2 leagues instead of MW2.

    I must admit I played as a sniper but had a shotgun instead. Hide in the bushes, pop out when someone runs by and then BAMM!
    Hmmm.... sounds good!

    Just spent 150 on a GTX260 to be able to play this... and am slightly still dissapointed to be honest...

    Prefer these types of games on a console... But each to there own... I have it on PC and 360...

    Seems good but would be nice for EA to release a game and not out their servers every time... it's pathetic

    Game looks funky, been doing single player to get into it... doomsday device ftw

    I've not found this at all. I think the graphics are stunning (for DX9) especially with everything on max if your PC can handle it.

    As for linear levels (if your referring to MP instead of SP), I disagree completely. Sure, with the Rush game type, you have to head to a specific points but your not limited how you get there in any way.

    "Oh no! A tank!" - Run for a building. No door? Blow a hole in the wall! Just hope the tank does not pummel the building into the ground with you in it!

    I had a spectacular moment last night on BC2, on one of the snow maps in the rush mode.

    Couldn't see a thing as a gunner on the tank I was driving was shooting like crazy at the snow, obscuring my view.

    Didn't see a squad of players laying what seemed to be supressing fire at a building on the road ahead.

    *Squish*

    PipBoy has killed XXXXXXX
    PipBoy has killed XXXXXXX
    PipBoy has killed XXXXXXX
    PipBoy has killed XXXXXXX
    PipBoy has killed XXXXXXX

    As you can imagine the barrage I got was fun.

    Hahahaha! That is priceless! My mate did the same to myself and another mate. We went ahead on a quad bike, he backed us up in a tank. We came under fire so bailed off the quad bike. My mate was too busy blasting at the tank ahead that he just ploughed over us!

    Footie first, gaming after

    BF2 is the first game that's actually wrote "epic fail" on the screen after I crashed one of the 4x4s
