  • From Alpha to BC2

    Played BC2 last night for the first time since the alpha....wow big difference. The game feels totally different to me. Even though we played rush in the alpha it is absolutely nothing like rush in BC2....much more restricted and straight forward in BC2. I for one am willing to admit I am having some BF3 withdrawals :D. I can't explain it but for everyone who is worried about it being another BC2....it's not. at least not for me.

    Re: From Alpha to BC2

    I think the problem is people have been confusing "not a BF2 clone" with "a BC2 clone". The pacing is different, the weapon physics are different, the ideology behind every game design decision in the game is more akin to the BF2/BF2142 than BC2. We have more realistic and effective cover, the environment is more spacious than BC2... I could go on but I'm bored now.

      Indeed, for those worried it is BC3, your fears are misguided. BF3, even with its faults, is going to be a great game.

          Withdrawals here as well. I played a bit of BC2 Vietnam the other day and it was really hard adjusting back to not having prone, and having a toggle for ironsights rather than hold-on.

            ^^^Yes indeed, BF3 will be epic. The Alpha was great. Prone alone, changes everything.

              Yep, I got the same impression just talking with you guys while you guys were gaming together. Hence why I finally placed a pre-order.

                There were some wonderful new features in the alpha and any negative thoughts on the playtest seem to be the exception rather than the standard. Something wonderful is coming our way.

                    I really hope the prone doesn't enable the campers. It's bad enough when they camp crouched, at least then they can't hide behind cover as easily. Too bad Battlefield loyalists weren't rewarded and they chose to throw darts at the wall to determine those who received Alpha access.

                        As long as they can't dolphin dive I will be fine with prone.

                          Dolphin dive Shotty or SMAW... Please let's not have this, but with more and more reviews coming out from alpha, I may be placing a pre-order this paycheck. Maybe.

                            Dolphin Dive = negative ghost rider
                            SMAW = it will be in the game....it wasn't very effective against infantry in the alpha....not an issue at this point


                            On a funny note, I forget who I was playing with....Jeepo maybe? anyways we saw someone trying to bunny hop in the Alpha......friggin hilarious to watch with this new movement engine they use. I will put it this way....you can shoot while you "try" to bunny hop, you will not kill anything, or hit anything for that matter. All you will do is die and look like an idiot. I don't know how they did it....but they seem to have eliminated the "bunny hop" problem.

                            by saying all this I think I'm still within the NDA...if not mods please delete.

                              I also witnessed someone trying to bunnyhop, short story... it didn't work out to well for them, and it was indeed entertaining to watch.
