Play BC2 and Vietnam in HC mode. It's much better, plus no stupid map and crosshair.

If it weren't for HC mode, I'd probably have stopped playing games like BC2 and the newer CoDs after two days.
...and I hate running across the battlefield for 2 minutes to get back into the action while some jack wagon on the other team hides in a tree and keeps picking me off before I can figure out where he is. I died like 10 times last night trying to get back to the capture points (playing rush), this guy was just camping the bushes but he kept moving around. With the 9 miles of fog on these maps its impossible to see anything without a scoped rifle and they have the power of a one pump bb gun.

This game is just so frustrating to me. At least in BO there is a kill cam, also you usually know who got you since the maps aren't 14 miles long with 9 miles of fog compensating for short draw distance and pop in textures that load as you move. I found the BF series and MOH to have really crappy game play experiences. They just aren't fun.

I thought it wasn't going to start recording until it was released on all platforms though?

This is the reason I DONT play on hardcore. With huge wide open maps like battlefield games have, one shot sniper kills are retarded. When it takes more shots to kill you, you have time to run for cover which adds another dimension to the game instead of being blasted away from God knows where every time you leave cover. The damage in Vietnam is much higher in normal mode which makes a good balance between bc2 normal and hard

Bullet drop helps a little bit.

I started played the squad death match. Gotta say its a lot better than rush or conquest in Vietnam. I love rush and conquest on BF BC2 but for some reason on Vietnam I hate it. At least I found a game mode that the game feels playable in. The map design sucks for rush and conquest me thinks.
