Ok i didnt see a thread on this so i thought id start one and the big question is whos playing the game. I just picked it up today for me and my roommate and have to say im pretty impressed so far with the graphics and game play. Theres a few bugs like with any game but there getting worked out fast. Im also thinking about putting a clan together for the game to play on a ladder/league and wanted to poke and see who is interested in the game.

Played some MP.
Completed the SP.
The End.

SP was nice, but clearly below CoD6. The game is certainly MP-focused.
Heavy sniper is useless since the light one has better RoF and more ammo.
SP missions are sometimes unbalanced.

My clan has a server up but alot of us arent liking the game play and the limited amount mods that can be done. We are trying to turn it into our main game but really FEAR was the best we ever had going and thats been down for along time and havent found anything to replace it. I like MW2's feel better but the IWNET thing just kills it for me.

Single player Im enjoying the graphics for the most part has a Crysis feel to it but even at the hardest setting it hasnt been very challenging. I find myself feeling like Im playing MW2's plot all over again at times for some reason.

Unless the game picks up for me online I will feel like I wasted 50 bucks.

All I wanted was something like BF2 or BF1942 with DX11 and destructible environments with the ability to mod and customize later on. That's it. I'm just not feeling it. Same way I didn't really get into BF2142, though there were some nice elements in there. Is it any wonder BF2 is still huge online, almost 5 years later?

Well after spending some time playing the game unfortunately i have to agree completely, the sp had some cool elements and all but overall the game just lacks in many areas. I myself wish i could return the game and get my money back but will simply go up on the shelf with the many other games that i dont play anymore.

After playing BF2 since the day it was released, I have to say that I like BFBC2.
Yeah it has some flaws but remember all the troubles running BF2 when it came out.
My biggest problem is running the game on Directx 10, just not buttery smooth like on Directx 9.
But honestly, I really don't see much eye candy difference between 9 and 10 anyways.

I'm running it on a 5770 and it's really smooth.
I'm really liking the MP; much more than MW2 in fact.

I wonder what MoH will bring up next.
I say that because: CoD 6 - exceptional SP, good MP and BFBC2 - exceptional MP and good SP. So things are pretty much covered.

Im loving this game atm, its actually the only game im currently playing. Have any of you guys tried altering the FOV? The default 55 value is pathetic IMO, makes the game totally unplayable, too zoomed in, I changed mine to 80 and it looks so much better:


55:



80:



55:



80:




There are still a few bugs in the game however, it doesnt have a crouch toggle, v-sync doesnt work, server ping doesnt display, and when playing single player the FOV changes back to 55 after a cutscene plays. Obviously if you havent changed the FOV this wont make a difference, but for me its annoying having to return to menu and re-load after every cutscene.

There are work arounds for the other bugs though, I use software called autohotkey which allows crouch toggle, and I use D3Doverrider to force v-sync.

Ive finished campaign now anyway and im just focusing on the multiplayer, here is my stats card:

Yeah, I'll wait a bit on it. Maybe that's why BF2 seemed good to me becasue I got on it later on and most of the bad bugs were fixed by then I guess. It looks promising, but I have to admit, I'm still having fun with BF2 and it's mods. Maybe we'll see mods with BFBC2? If not, consider it a short lived game.

I usually play with FOV 120 but I didn't change it for this game.

Yep, the game is awesome, I'm having a blast playing it!!!

Here's a FOV calculator, which is based on you monitor resolution and horizontal view:

http://rjdown.co.uk/projects/bfbc2/fovcalculator.php

My resolution is 1920x1080 and with a 90 degree horizontal view, my FOV is 59.

A lower resolution monitor will have a higher FOV, confused now?

This is the ONLY game I have where I had to go so low on the clock.

Even BF2 is pretty touchy on overclocking. The multi-core update did help, but it'll find an unstavle system a lot quicker than most games or benchmarks will.
