If that's with your dual 7800GTX system, that's truly pathetic.

It was. I'm now using the SLI value that was used for the Brothers In Arms and with that value, it's a little better. The area I was hitting the upper 20s in is now in the low 50s.

Not for me either. I have the first game it was a disappointment. I was fooled by the good reviews it got, LOL. If it had a demo I wouldn't have bought it. Anyways, looking forward to COD 2.

Why don't you go playing CS and stop flooding forums with oppinions which are ridiculous. The game is wonderful as was the first one and it is not your casual FPS so everybody that looks for a generic gameplay why don't you look elsewhere.

You're being unreasonable and ridiculous. You have no right to tell me what to play and where to look for what. And people who don't agree with you must shut up? What happaned to freedom of speech?

Oh, if you think the first game was wonderful good for you, but please go to the official BIA forum for the PC version, and see for yourself how many people were not happy about the first game.

I like it but I'm having a hard time aiming when not using the zoomed view. It has also taken me a little time to get used to having to tell the guys what to do. For the most part, I'm a casual player and don't want to have to deal with a lot of details. That is, in a game like this, I'd rather someone else be in charge so I'd just have to worry about following orders, completing my objective, staying alive for more than 5 minutes, etc. So far, I've been getting my guys killed almost immediately and that doesn't do much for my morale.

Just got around to trying this one out and played it for the last couple of nights. Graphics are better and the AI is much more aggressive and do not stand around waiting for you to shoot them. They tend to regroup if the situation is not to advantage and you have not pinned them down adequately with your squad. If you are at a disadvantage they will charge you. The commanding a squad is what separates this game from others of the genre.

Staying on the plus side, the game is very stable and frame rates at 16x12 with max AA/AF is very good with gameplay very smooth with a GTX.

I got the game tonight. Runs pretty well and looks pretty good. I'm still trying to get use to shooting though. I can also safely say that someone else really needs to be in charge.

I have tried to hand the responsibility off several times but none of the AI's are scripted to do that.

I think the aiming is better than the first one but still not as easy as some of the of the other games. If you have noticed you have to aim and 'pull the trigger' based on your breathing. I have lucked out a head shot a time or two.
