Note to all future developers. SLIGHTLY changing the HUD does not set your game apart from CoD considering you cloned it. There is even hit counters, points splashing on the screen when you kill enemies... this is Call of Duty 8 : /

whoa. Since when did cod invent hit counters, points splashing on the screen? Hell you probably think that cod invented the FPS also. Frontlines also figured some of the stuff figured here. Frontlines had RC cars first also.

Since when did COD involve piloting a chopper, jeep, tank. Or have squads. That video really shows nothing about what you are talking about.

Chopper gunner? It shows everything I'm talking about, it is identical to the CoD HUD with things just being shifted to different corners of the screen and the hit counters and points are glaringly the same. The battle points system works out to be exactly the same thing as kill streaks, kill a couple guys and you get to use a special weapon you activate. The concept of their MP is identical to CoD's. It doesn't matter who created what, it matters that I and many others already own CoD so why are we going to buy a game that is the same thing -.- And for somebody like me who is tired of CoD (I only own one of the games and I'm tired of it) you aren't going to get my sale by beating the dead horse farther for your own profit.

this is where you are mistaken.

Vehicles are actually piloted by the player. As in you need a chopper and a gunner. The chopper doesnt pilot itself, nor does the tank.

Battlepoints are not kill streaks, as they are earned from killing, and doing the objectives required in the match. which allow you to unlock better guns, call in airstrikes, or use them to call in a tank for you to drive. So you can spend battlepoints to a flak jacket, to survive longer, or spend it on an RPG so you can take out the armor the enemy spent their battlepoints on. Or spend them on an airstrike to hit some bunkered up enemies.

It is actually pretty damn similar to what was in frontlines fuels of war. Which as you gained points in the match you were able to unlock higher tiers of skills and abilities.

The game is focused on Vehicle and infantry combat, not infantry combat, and it is 32 players, not 16 players. With maps way larger than COD maps.

If you were to compare it to a game, i would suggest you compare it to bad company 2. Which oddly enough, guys at kaos studio worked on battlefield 2, and a mod from bf1942.

When was the last time you say a group of infantry driving around in a jeep only to get hit by a tank and destroyed in a multiplayer game of COD? How about a tank shooting a chopper out of the sky? How about a chopper chasing a jeep with 4 guys inside across the map while the guys in the jeep try desperately to dodge rocket fire from the chopper that 2 guys are in, 1 the pilot and the other the gunner. If you cant come up with one, well i think you need to go sit in a corner.

Some people are just plain ignorant of the facts. So im not sure where you get the idea that their concept of MP is identical, because i sure as hell dont recall piloted vehicles in any recent COD game, other than what 1 map in WaW, and it was just a tank. So go ahead and skip the identical game, we dont care lol. Wallow in your own stupidity on the subject.

Just picked up this game yesterday for £5 from a local Game store in there sale, have only played this game on Onlive with the 30min trial and I did like it better than most CoD games so tonight after work I will be playing this for a little bit just to get more of a feel for the game.

I played this game at release and beta, and though it's disappointing, it's far from 'awful'. People use way to harsh of words for games, and everything really... the decline of education and proper word choice.

I enjoyed this game and played for the first few month online, but when the community started dwindling and overly harsh reviews stifled new sales and community support, it just kind of stagnated. It has some interesting aspects, and a decent if short single player campaign as well. The graphics are decent, balancing is decent, and overall it's a decent game. Worth every bit of the $5 he paid, probably $20 really. Though I would'nt say it's worth the price of a new game, which is why many felt ripped off and raged... imagine that, online rage over sensless gaming entitlement.

Enjoy the game man, thumb.gif
