    Yes.

    You know, you could just try it out.

    Be sure to watch this video though:

    BF2 is better.

    Hit recognition is bad. Gameplay is meh.

    I love it. With the new Vietnam expansion and the new maps it has become a major time eater of mine. Everything Battlefield does is amazing.

    I recommend Legion At War if you want a relaxed and funny group of down to earth guys, aged 25-55 who play all the time. Most of them are married with kids, so they don't take it seriously at all.

    I recommend Tactical Gamer if you want the most fun tactical experience with an active community. The most fun I've had in any games I've played (BF2, ARMA2) I've had with these guys. Play with them when you have time to burn and can focus, because these guys take gaming really seriously.

    These clubs span tons of games, mostly FPS, so if you get to know them, you will know them for years. You must have the Teamspeak client to fully enjoy the game.

    The only thing the game is missing is the commander. They used to only have small maps, but they've fixed that recently making it feel more like BF2.5. Vietnam is awesome. My name in game is TuffStuffMcGruff by the way.

    BF 2 is still the best BF game ever. BC2 was amusing and fun, but nothing gameplay wise compared to BF 2, and BC2 8!0\/\/$ 50@7$.

    I'm playing but going to quit soon because my ping is huge on any servers (300+) and I have lag :(

    But I have to agree, a really good multiplayer experience.

    Yes!

    Especially if it's 20 euro's (about 27 aud) like here.

    In no time you'll hit the 50 hours, especially with mates.

    Yatzee's reviews are more of a novelty than anything. Trusting any "angry" reviewer for a total picture of the final product is dubious at best.

    Find a decent server that has an active admin team and you'll have some fun. The game's got a hacker problem, but what battlefield game doesn't?

    Having met Yatzee, I know that his reviews are largely hyperbole. But, if he doesn't like a game, he means it. His main view is that there is no such thing as the perfect game, he basically acts out the opposite of a "fanboi".

    I don't want to sink 20 bucks into a game I will barely play. For example, I bought L4D2 on the back of L4D1, haven't played it once, it's that rubbish (Aussie version) and it cost me, while not much in the scheme of things, $20. But, I bought Killing Floor + DLC for $5, I've played 50 hours with mates in no time. Basically, on principle, I don't want a repeat of that. Or should I wait for BF3?

    Oh without a doubt he is 100% sincere, but his standards are so incredibly high sometimes it's almost a self-parody. A game doesn't need to be an art-house shooter to be good for instance, and BC2 is definitely not that.

    Though I'll gladly admit the initial release state of the game was terrible. Bugged up and nearly hopeless in online play. These days its become a very respectable title and a worthy online shooter. You say you've got friends who play it, well you're in luck since BC2 is played best with 2-3 friends. The game is practically designed around squad based combat, so if you were to play with people and work together I'm sure you'd have at least a little bit of fun.

    Cheers. What's the bet I get it and a month later it's 75% off on a random Steam sale.

    I love it personally. I don't know how good it is on PC though.

    But my advice? wait a few months. Battlefield 3 is out October 25th, and it looks AMAZING. i'm pre-ordering soon.

    Bleh. Looks exactly like every other CoD that has appeared in the last 5 years.

    Looks. It also looks like BF2 with a lot of shine applied. I trust them with the MP.

    I definitely do not agree with this. Battlefield is nothing like CoD, except maybe the fact that you shoot people. The entire gameplay is different, and the fact that CoD hasn't changed since CoD 4 means that it's easy to contrast. The differences are glaring, not only gameplay wise, but graphically as well. MW3 looks nowhere close to the visual quality of BF3.

    Because it gives a grand strategical aspect to the game. I remember in BF2142, when we had a good commander that is, we would divide into squads and the commander would devise a strategy on how to win the match. He would be able to talk to squad commanders and give them orders. You really felt like you were part of a larger thing. In BC2 it was a bunch of squads running around trying to get to the objective.
    In short, a commander makes things more organized.

    I think the squad leaders are going to be able to talk to eachother, but i'm not sure. it would be nice though, it would kind of eliminate the need for an official commander.

    No, you need someone who is removed from fighting the battle so they can concentrate on the strategy. Cant really concentrate on strategy very well if you are under fire...

    realistically you cant. but, at least in my experience with teams of max 12, i find it fairly easy to recognize a threat, get people to neutralize it, and then develop a strategy to counter it should it come up again. now that I think about it this method is more than a bit reactive rather than proactive, but it's the best I can work with most of the time. but I do sometimes devise plans before we start losing men.

    I can only hope that the squad leader inter-communication automatically places the people with mics as squad leaders; it would be pretty difficult to communicate orders to another squad when their leader cant tell them anything.
