    Yeah me too.

    I'm back on BC2 for the time being. Seems to be a lot of new players on it at the moment!

    I really can't wait for this, the PC graphics look epic in the promo vids (although it was probably running on a Core i7 Extreme Edition with dual GTX580's).

    How do the helicopters compare to BF2, out of interest? I loved them in BF Vietnam, but in BF2 I thought it was way too easy to get shot down. The minute you took off the feckin missile alarm would just start bleating away continuously until you got blown out of the sky!

    The BC2 helis are a pain in the ass if you ask me. I never played BF2 so cant compare but all the people at the top of the BC2 leader boards are choppa whores who just play the same map over and over again.

    I hope they make it easier to bring down choppas/jets on BF3 compared with BC2.

    I haven't played BC2 so can't comment on that one, but it just needs to be balanced fairly, IMO. In BF2 they were way too easy to take down, and in BFV they probably had it a bit too easy, to be fair.

    I agree the choppers shouldn't be too hard to kill, but conversely if it's impossible to stay airborne for more than 6 seconds they might as well not be in the game! There must be a happy medium somewhere :)

    Yeah correct.

    In BC2 the choppa whores just fly in circles and destroy all the anti air guns as soon as they spawn. It's difficult enough to hit the choppa with a tracer dart to be able to hit it with a rocket. Most of the whores are equipped with the smoke perc which means they can loose a tracer dart as soon as it hits them! It's a joke.

    i wouldnt say it was like COD dude, but after all they all do the same thing dont they. its still a bit glitchy right now which does my nut in but it will iron out soon and then we can fully appreciate it. im looking forward to seeing how COD shapes up this year also

    It took me a few online hours to get used to it and now I'm enjoying it. It's not got me gripped in the same way BC2 did, yet.

    Yeah, it's not quite been as instant a hit with me as BC2 was either. It is growing on me though and difficulty of the online makes me want to play more (just don't get the time). It's still 1,000,000x better than MW3. PSN name realmowat

    well first off id like to say BF3 is fooking amazing, i cannot stop playing for the life of me and the mrs lol, i swear on sunday i played it from 10am to 5.30pm straight through no stopping. my favourite maps are operation metro, seine crossing, grand bazzar, tehran highway well pretty much all of them. i play rush non stop, once i unlock all guns and everything else i shall start playing conquest and the other modes but rush is like porn to me.....im hooked just like i was in BC2.

    campaign was really good i though if a bit short for my liking but its cool as these games are made for online. im waiting for MW3 on xmas as the mrs got it for me so be good to compare the 2 games but it has a great feat to beat BF3 in sound, sight and feel.

    I can't stop raging. Every time I play the map with the tunnel I get destroyed! I only play conquest as I can't stand rush but I've been close to putting the BC2 cd back in my PS3 already.

    Tonight I got the last campaign trophy and have 3 co-op trophies. Once I have all co-op I'm guessing I'll be forced to play multiplayer again.

    Bloody game has left me in a foul mood today. Been off work today (sick, not on strike) and it was a joy to play during the day. No lag, no hit detection issues. As soon as it hits about 4pm all the servers must get busy and it goes tits up!

    I've been trying to get all the ribbons so I can get the "decorated" trophy and got to rank 18 today. Just want to platinum the game and put it to bed before It gives me any more grey hairs!

    It feels like a chore to me now to even start playing this game whereas I couldn't wait to get home and play BC2! I'm starting to find other things to do just so I dont have to turn on my PS3 haha
