    this one will also have regen health which i am not a big fan of. i was expecting this game to be a bit like the PC versions of battlefield but i guess that was wishful thinking.

    The more i hear about this game, the less appealing it is for me.

    Did the ps3 one have regenerating health (bad company)? I recall teamkilling medics 'cause they wouldn't heal me :D

    I'm sure it was only the assault class that had an injector or something like that to regenerate health... I may be wrong as I haven't played it in ages.

    im going to give my thoughts on why im not looking forward to this game.

    first of all, BC came out around this time last year and a few months ago, it was announced that the sequal was already in development.

    my initial impression was(what the hell? already?). what was going through my head at the time is how this sequal wont be a true sequal, more of a expansion pack game ie(few new maps and weapons.).

    I then had faith that when some of the features would be announced, it would contain some big changes, typicaly on what you see from a proper sequal(BF1942 > BF2).

    Judging from the features thats been announced so far, it doesnt seem to point out any major changes.

    the difference i can see between BC1 and BC2 so far is this:


    • new maps
    • one new MP mode besides Gold rush and conquest(Failure with only 24 player count)
    • less class's
    • regen health
    • can completely destroy buildings(Almost can on the first one)
    • New viechals(still cant fly a plane :thumbsdow) and weapons.
    • perks system(COD/killzone anyone?)
    • kill cam(again, COD?? )
    Those are the features that best stand out. teh question is, does these new features sound like a SEQUAL or a expansion game?

    Lets take a look at some of the features from BF1942 to BF2

    • customized squads that can retreive orders and stratagic objectives from the commander
    • Commander that can give orders(see point 1)
    • new setting/timeline
    • new maps, weapons and gadgets
    • Awards and unlockable items
    • different variations of the same map dependable to the player count(64 players max)
    Now to me, BF2 was a true sequal to BF1942. BC2 doesnt sound promising at this moment in time. dont forget, BF2 came out 3 years after BF1942 and if im not mistaken, used a slightly modified engine of BF1942, not a brand new engine.

    All i want from dice is a SEQUAL, not an expansion of BC1 but atm BC1 is sounding more like a expansion game.

    What i want to see from BC2?


    • every feature from BF2 including higher player count of 64 players
    • Plus many new features not doen before(Dice should work that out, its there job, not mine to think of something a bit original to add to this game)
    Cheers

    Of all the new games coming out this is the one I want most.
    I wouldn't mind if it was online only like 1943 as the game itself was good but the online game was what did it for me.
    Other games like MW online are good but they don't have that same sense of scale that bad company has, you do feel as if your on a battlefield and not a paint ball room.
    If a sniper can see from one end of the map to the other then the map is to small.

    Bad Company is still my fave PS3 online shooter so can't wait for this.

    Have already decided against some of the other hopefuls (MAG in particular) and MW2 I expect I'll tire of very soon like WAW as CODs always too arcadey for my liking.

    OF:DR was my biggest hope but still not managed to get online with it yet!

    Haven't the recent Beta programs been SONY ones though? I think this one being an EA game doesn't guarantee us a key.....although I hope I'm wrong as this is one of my most wanted :(

    Yep...even more so than in BFBC and BF1943 :smashin:

    EA/DICE have called it Destruction 2.0 (BFBC was 1.0, BF1943 was 1.5)

    This quote is from the launch earlier in the year -

    It should help flush out the campers and snipers :D

    Watching that vid reminds me of the utter mayhem you get in BBC when its near the end and its close as to which side will win.
    I'll have to make some kind of BBC2 advent calender, these months are going to drag.

    On the official site they will soon be doing BETA sign ups so sign up there once it's available and they may send you a code.
    Battlefield Bad Company™ 2

    Also on the site it says codes will be sent to IGN.com and Gamespot.com to distribute so keep your eyes on those sites. :smashin:
