Well I tried it, and wasn't too impressed.

1) What the hell is up with those loading times? Takes ages, and my HD is hardly doing anything.
2) Player controls need some major work, it feels awful.
3) Some of the explosions are nice, the rest of the graphics look a bit bland to me.
4) Feels a bit too simulatory rather than gamey.

meh.. just doesn't come anywhere near UT, BF: DC, BF:Vietnam imo..

It is a Novalogic game. They put out cheesey products IMO. I have liked some of them but cheesey none the less.

The load times were pretty fast for me, probably about 20-25 seconds.

However, the controls gave me fits. It wouldt let me bind any button other than the left click in the options. And when I did, it showed up as "Enter" not Mouse1 like 99% of other games out there. I like jump as my right mouse.. it wouldnt let me do that. In the options the scope is set to \ as default, yet when I load up the game, right mouse is scope? Annoying.

The graphics were subpar to me as well (for a new game). Very little folliage. I know graphics arent the thing that makes a game great or fun, but it helps. The chopper flew like a airborn log wagon, other vehicles felts pretty good.

All in all, not impressed at all. I couldnt get the configuration I wanted though for the controls, so I didnt play much at all. With more gameplay, I might like it more.

Yea I agree with most of the post. I never found a keyconfig I was happy with in any of the DF serries. And this one follows suite. After finally learning how to fly helo's in BF:V, DC/EOD I felt that these were a bit too nerfed and simple to fly. I was expect to crash at least 3/4 times the first time in firy flames. I also thought that the Graphics where dumb down a bit. I played Team Saber (Expansion pack for DF:BHD) and the textures in there looked 100x better. Could they have keep the textures and other stuff in low detail to save download size? And I hate how I have to swtich postions in a vehicle. I have found BF/UT2k4 to be ideal and want that type of system. The game has potential....
