Agreed, on both points.



A little?

It's virtually immune to small arms and autocanon fire; the TV guided missile is as fast as air-to-air missiles; it recharges flares too fast; and worst of all, there are no man portable surface to air missiles.

You can't reliably shoot it down with anything but another helo, and that only works if you get the jump on them and your gunner has better aim.
Oh I assure you, that will be totally different in BF3

It would be a different story if they were charging money from the get-go, but its included for free with every limited edition which is going to be the main edition sold until they're sold out - just like it was with BC2. Extra BF2 maps, developed by a separate team, completely free, and yet you guys are complaining.

Yeah make sure you research all 4 maps that you're getting for free real good before picking up a limited edition there Viridian.

I won't pre-order this game until it's on Steam, that's the only place I want it from.

They will probably have it for sale on Steam after the E3 in June, or end of Summer, we'll see....
Maybe Steam has to upgrade infrastructure to handle the massive pre-order bombardment they will receive?

Yes love Wake Island, even love the jets bombing spam haha.

EDIT:

And BC2 Vietnam? What a rip off that was. 3-4 maps, which got very boring, very quickly, and a grand total of about 4 new guns and, no singleplayer game, for £9.99? Yeah, I'll be researching the next BF DLC I buy.
Only one horrible thing comes to mind when I read your post:

Not virtually, it IS immune to all "small" arms fire, if you can call the M95 sniper a small arm. If anything should be able to damage it, it's that rifle. It's a .50 cal bullet FFS. It was designed to be fired at armored vehicles (humvee's and whatnot). Yet it's totally useless against any sort of vehicles, except ATV's in BC2. I have gotten lucky and sniped the pilot before. But that is really rare.
