Not being able to run in any direction other than straight ahead drove me bonkers in BC2.

Only thing that has me worried is his comment about the LAV I really hope they reverted back towards the old style of control for Jets and Heli the BFBC2 heli's were a joke.
I disagree on the ranking speed. The first number of ranks are easy to achieve, (much like leveling in most RPG games.) But once you get to the 20s or 30s in rank, it takes a looong time to level. I've played all night before, (no I don't suck, hohoho), and I've barely gotten halfway from rank 30 to 31. Now COD ranking was a joke, yeah. Very unappealing, IMO.

As for the vehicles, the only thing that made me feel "Special Ed", were the helicopters. I can't fly one of those things, for the life of me. Last time I tried, my entire team raged at me. I just used to excuse that my "cat jumped on my keyboard". How do THEY know I don't have a cat?

To me it looks like they got the best of both BF2 and BC2, some people won't like that and others may not ever read the actual articles, but either way it will be epic when it hits.

Now I just need a good board and GPU for then.

There was only one vehicle, the LAV-25 APC. Controls felt like Bad Company 2, but the cannon firing and sounds were much more realistic, as if you’re in a real APC.
Wonderful, more negative accelleration to be removed.

I actually like BC2 with the exception of too much destruction going on sometimes and with so many people on the server you can't hide anywhere. At first it bothered me that you can't strafe run but after a while I got used to it. It'd be nice if you could look around you while running though.
