Special forces: DO NOT BUY

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
This expansion takes an already buggy game and turns it into a piece of :turd: I'll start by listing the numerous ADDED problems; I'm not even going to start on the problems that the origional already had.

1) If you've already got an origional unlock you get get the special forces unlock for that kit, BUT, you can only use it in the origional maps. Wow, now how dumb is that? Also on some special forces maps, certian teams get special forces unlocks regardless of weather they unlocked them or not. So, what does this mean for me? I buy special forces but can only play the origional if I want to use the new guns. EA really farked it up this time.

2) Special forces is a mod that has to be switched between, and it takes forever. So if you have special forces loaded up, and want to play an origional map, then you have to switch mods which takes about one full minute.

3) Video settings reset themselves. This was already somewhat a problem with the origional but now it's much worse. If you set the quality to high, it will work for the first map, but will reset to low after that. The only way to get it back on high or any other settings for that matter is to close the game and delete the game cache in my documents. This of course causes the game to re-optimise shaders which will set you back about 5-8 minutes on a fast system like mine.

I just got the game and this is all I've found so far in my two times playing it, and it was enough to make me quit in frustration and want to scream at EA. I would highly suggest staying away from this expansion unless some mericle patch comes out that somehow fixes all these problems. And if you find a solution to any, let me know as well because I could really use it.

Yeah I've heard only bad things about this expansion, most people say that it should have been a patch and they feel like they lost their money

I think we need more companies to do like Raven and just give up on selling games and release free full games like wolf et. I mean great game for free, how can you lose? And they even released patches for it, not like current games that cost $50 and you don't even get any updates *cough, CoD2*cough*

LOL, I played the COD2 demo and that was enough for me to say F*** that. I mean seriously, if the demo sucks that bad, where would the full version be going?

um the full version is one of the best fps ive ever played, it looks killer and is a very good re-creatiion of world war 2, ive hadno probs with cod2 at all the spec forces is a bit dicky but will get sorted in time, its a pity they sell things that dont work properly but that is the same with everything, there must be a lot of pressure from higher sources to get things finished (sort of) especially at this time of the year.

Ok I have some updated information on the unlocks which I will integrate into my first post.

The deal is... now for every rank you get two unlocks. If you've already got an origional unlock you get get the special forces unlock for that kit, BUT, you can only use it in the origional maps. Wow, now how dumb is that? Also on some special forces maps, certian teams get special forces unlocks regardless of weather they unlocked them or not. So, what does this mean for me? I buy special forces but can only play the origional if I want to use the new guns. EA really farked it up this time.

Is BF2 more workable (ie Original)? Worth buying for 50?
And Im srry COD2 is a prime example of companies ripping you off. Took me 8 hours (Generous). And Im no FPS pro. Its a freakin war SIM cmon, lame. As long as plp buy this junk they will keep shoveling it. Kinda have an agenda against EA anyways for not supporting 'Zero Hour' C&C. And others...

Know some good review sites other than IGN and Gamespot? thnks dudes.
