From what I've read so far, thank god it's not trying to be as realistic as Arma, otherwise most people would be asleep by the time they reached the objective. I already find BF3 both slow-paced AND camper-friendly (a very bad combination). Having to hold Shift + W for painfully long amounts of time to get anywhere and risking getting taken out by random campers/snipers (they've got all day to sit there and wait) isn't my idea of fun. But that's just my opinion, some people enjoy that kind of thing.
I can't help but feel that the developers are aiming this game at an extremely small and niche crowd, primarily consisting of lovers of previous Arma titles and/or people who enjoy watching paint dry. But I can respect the developers' intentions, they don't need CoD/BF3 fanboys kicking their door down demanding a better experience - it's actually good they're not following suite and keeping their game true for their loyal fans.
The visuals look amazing (as with any game these days), but Youtube 1080p footage of this game will give me more than enough of that Edited by Tippy - 4/20/12 at 7:26pm
