Looks like a pimped out version of BF Heroes - which isn't a bad thing!

Seems to have 4 maps on the X360 now as the latter is unlocked when there are a certain amount of kills racked up on the servers!

Hope we do play this it could be fun !!!

Good games last night AhBun and Jelly! Those were the EG peeps i have been playing L4D with for the last year they are a good laugh!

Sorry you got dropped from the party AhBun tried to re-invite you but some one else joined from EG and it was full, btw you are very good at this game

It was good to hear you both again as well it had been a while


A few tips we all should know but i had remind myslef of:

If you want to know what places are called before you spawn (not the squad spawn) on the map it says what they are called.

If one player takes a plane in your squad dont spawn till he bails out and then all spawn on him. (need to plan this before hand)

If your the scout plant bombs on the jeep and run it into tanks but jump out before you hit it and set the bombs off, instant tank death!! (suicide jeeps ftw)

Look at the map before you spawn to see where your most needed or listen to your team m8s as they may need an engi to blow up a tank, or a scout to snipe someone etc.

All tanks are weak from the back and will blow up with one hit normally, they are also weak on the wheel things, but it might take a couple of hits.

If your in a tank and are an engi in the gunner mount jump out while the tanks fight each other you can normally take it out with your rockets!

Yes, it was fun in party mode.
It did take me a little while to get used to Battlefield playing style. It's been a long time.
Well played all.
No flying for me still. I was quite good with air raids though

Hey guys

How does the game feel though? anything like '42? particularly interested in the planes, kinda hoping they've made it fun to dogfight again. It seemed to me that in all subsequent versions of BF anything that involved flying was terribad.

Can you still play all the same tricks? frisbee mines under tanks? run infantry over with planes? wing surf? )

Have you downloaded the demo? (500MB)
You can play online for an hour or so before it asks you to buy the game (which is a tiny add-on).
The tutorial is still playable (according to online posts) without purchasing the game and does have a plane on wake island that you can fly around for as long as you like.
I've tried a bit of flying and have amazingly shot down a few people. Bombing tanks and strafing seems tricky, but I reckon with some practice you could do some damage in planes. Generally though, I just fly around (with the odd crash here and there) admiring the scenery. It all looks rather nice - lovely holiday destinations rather than war zones.
I don't think you can wing surf and there aren't any mines but the sniper class has sticky dynamite which is really good.
Infantry (Engineer) class has a bazooka/thompson/grenades/spanner.
The rifleman class has M1 rifle/rifle grenades/grenades/bayonet.
Like BFBC, you can destroy buildings etc - a nice addition. There is a squad system that makes it easier to get into the action.
Generally, it feels similar to 42 albeit on a console and only 12v12. It's an upgrade. It certainly looks good. Getting into a firefight with most of the opposition is good fun especially with the M1. Everything sounds nice and the guns feel solid.
Download the demo and see what you think.

The 360 now as the unlocked map Coral Sea its just a dogfight game no capping at all its deathmatch in planes. Very good fun but it gets old after a bit.





The other maps are great and worth the £10 alone!

Hi Wedge
Sorry, I assumed that you had an xbox (like a lot of PR people).
If the PC version has more players - 32 and above - it would be even better and more intense than the console version. I forgot to add that the vehicles (jeeps/tanks) are good fun too. Jeeps can take more damage than they should be able to when doing off-road rambling, but that reminds me of 42. Tanks are very lethal with the coaxial mg which is the best way to take out infantry. The planes handle really well with a console controller, so with a keyboard/mouse/joystick (and some talent) they might be even better. Long-range shooting with rifles also reminds me of 42. You can't lie on the ground, only crouch - which was introduced with BF Bad Company - so they might include this in the PC version. If wing walking was possible in 42 you'd hope they'd include that in the PC version just as a throwback to the original. I'm assuming they will release a demo when the PC version comes out at the end of August/early September but who knows.

[Edit]
On the flying front, you can still run people over with planes. I've managed it twice. Once by complete fluke, and the other time it took 3 attempts to remove a stationary sniper from a hill top - I needed a couple of replacement planes. There are quite a few trees that get in the way of ground skimming.
