I recently stumbled across this render for a mod for BF2. That F-177 looks really good! I hope this game is a bit more tactical and less arcadey than BF 1942.

The game looks good - but I think it may still have that "arcade" feel to it.

Definitely some slick graphics but I'm going to have to agree with NoBunny, kinda looks like another arcade game.

Those bottom screenshots of the game are actually taken in Battlefield : Vietnam. I guess it's their way of testing?

Check out the videos on that site NoBunny linked. They are very very slick indeed.

I'm hoping that there will be a mod that makes it more realistic. I really hate hp systems. I hate the idea of being able to hurt a tank with a machine gun.

EA will never make realistic games, expect BF2 to be no different the BF1942 when it comes to arcade. Be sure.

BF2 will be an multiplayer arcade game, not a flight sim. Just like BF1942.

Check out new "command structure" feature of BF2! That's something really new and really needed. Each side has a commander and leaders. Commander is a bodyless entity, looking at the map like in C&C and communicating with leaders via voice comm. Leaders (each with about 4-6 soldiers) are communicating with commander and their soldiers. Leader in vehicle is also a mobile spawning post.

Commander think of strategy, and he is moving his teams around. Leader will execute commander's orders (issuing orders to members of his team).

I think this command structure might really work much better and much more interesting than wild and unorganized hordes on today's BF1942 servers (and il-2 too).

I think the new command structure may make it worth the price - more control over the battlefield.

btw - I run a Call of Duty:United Offensive server if anyone else playes the game - revco | 66.150.170.134:28960

The server is running one of thoes [I]bad[/] mods that ruin games (Total War 3.0)

Desert Combat was the only reason I purchased BF1942.
