Yea bc2 is good. I particularly enjoy c4-ing atv's and zooming up to enemy tanks for the kill. I hate the arduous and unfair unlock process though. Veterans have all the best weapons, while new players get the crap weapons. And those graphics are crazy in the trailer.
yeah, that's funny. I was one of the pioneers of the c4atv maneuver. At least, when I started doing it, I hadn't seen anyone else try it yet. I got it from unreal tournament 3. And I just recently finished unlocking all the equipment.
Played Crysis 2 yet Lucid? The lighting is gorgeous.
crysis 2 upped the game, now battlefield 3 can top it maybe...
its all about the shaders and textures
I've played Crysis 2, and I have a gaming pc, so I played it maxed. It definitely looks good, especially when you emerge into the light after walking through a dark corridor, and the awesome lightbloom is even more powerful for a second....definitely awesome, but it's got nothing on those battlefield 3 trailers. crytek, like so many others, sold out, and made it a console port. I doesn't even use dx11.
My jaw dropped at watching that trailer. The graphics look far better than the unreal and crysis tech vids that showed up. The lighting and graphics and especially how they move makes that look real. Incredible.
yeah, about the animation : http://www.joystiq.com/2011/03/01/battlefield-3-incorporates-animation-tech-used-in-ea-sports-game/
also, I can't find it now, but he said something about the destruction system, and how it's next gen in a way that nothing out there even comes close to.
btw, the sound in bad company 2 is probably the best in any game. If you're in a desert, hiding inside the husk of a bus, you hear the perfectly clear and unmistakable sound of bits of sand hitting the metal as wind blows, or tiny creaks. And then a tank fires near you, in a realistically deafening boom.
anyway. top quality stuff
