Add better controls to it (although the mod community took care of that for BF2), hopefully add rewind this time, and that would be great.
To any and all:
One of the first thing new comers have to understand, is that DICE is a PC game company. They are not new and have always featured a "battlecam" on their major titles. It was only when Call of Duty and console kiddies found fps and DICE went in head deep into the console market to share what the PC players already knew. That the battlefield platform & backbone offer superior game play.
Problem was, the consoles run arcade games Weill (call of duty, medal of honor) but DICE's open world design eats up a lot of the resources of the xbox/psp, due to their anemic hardware.
That^ is why the console market has bits & pieces of the PC games, but never in one setting/game. Bf1943, BC, bc2 are all off shoots of the bf franchise & none of them carry the bf theme (dun da dun dun...). That is why bfbc2 is small and mostly micro play & run & gun. Same reason on 32 players instead of the traditional 64 players.
Secondly, as u mentioned, the battle recorder is superior to fraps! The is no comparison, as you can pause, stop, rotate around player, change perspective of view, toggle to any other player and resume playing the recorder.
It is virtually an off-line movie of the entire game, in 3d. Which u can move to & thru as a spectator and see how the game was played... from any perspective, or and angle..!
