I liked it better when it was gold crates.

Posted by S0ndor

Oh so that's how FPS games work.

Posted by Aas

Seeing as this is an online demo, do you need a gold subscription?

my first battlefield. oh wait, that was battlefield heroes.

Here's a fun tip: As an attacker in the first area, spawn as recon, select C4, select "Expanded explosive ammunition", hop down to an ATV, throw all 6 of your C4 on it, drive it up to an M-COM station, blow it up. Destroys the entire thing in one instantaneous swoop.
 
I hear that that's fixed in the final version of the game, though :-\

This game is fucking awesome.

Yeah, "lone wolf tactics won't be enough" my ass. 
 
But maybe they'll change it, I don't mind the car bombs themselves, just that you can kill objs with them so fast. I've had games where as soon as I got in both of the first MCOMs were gone.
 
As a defender you have to stop people from plain planting the bomb like normal (or just C4ing it), and mortar/tank/UAV barrages from destroying the MCOM or the house it's in. 
You have to attack and defend at the same time.

Devs said they are giving the crates more health so that it will take "significantly more" C4 to knock out. 
 
Which is good, because the C4 rushing in the beta sucks. Even the people that say, "Well, you're just not defending it properly," are just plain wrong, because it happens every single round. And I know I do my part to defend against them. It's just too viable of an "easy win" to be countered well enough. 
 
Oh well. When you're not being rushed by asshats, and you have some buddies on your squad, this game is the definitive competitive FPS. Not CS:S, not MW2, this. It has some flaws, but it's great.

They definitely needed this video because I've seen far too many people this game like it was TDM.

First to call douche.
 
Its a really interesting demo, though i think the control feels a little outdated.

BATTLEFIELD IS BACK BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is gonna be awsome
Posted by belaraphon

hopefully people play as a team. i have been in too many games where players un-joined squads and just ran around like fools.

You can lead a horse to water my friends, but a pencil must be lead ;)

Posted by artofwar420

I've played the demo and for Zeus, it's the most fun I've had in a multiplayer game, I think ever.

I agree. I think if I had friends who had this game, and we all played it as much as I currently do, and in a squad.... and we had a team of similarly minded squads, like a clan even, then yeah, I think it might be the definitive competitive experience (run ons are the shit). God damn, playing with a consistent squad would be fun. I got medic.

First let me tell you, I have played the Beta for PC and demo for Xbox there is a significant difference between the way the two handle.  In xbox you can run out of cover and sprint across areas because due to joysticks, people cannot turn fast enough to see you or kill you.  On PC this just isnt possible, if you run out in the open (especially on hardcore) you are toast.  Graphic wise there is a big difference too, now im not the guy who says PC is better because it looks better, the pc has almost 5 years on the xbox360 so that is expected.  However if you want a TRUE battlefield experience with custom servers and browse for low ping and filter the servers PC is for you, either way it is a great game and it will get great scores on both platforms, just my opinion.

Bad Company is awesome. 

Edited by Seppli

Love the game. It's a blast. Literally. Can't wait for the full release.
 
Also - best demo ever! Rarely does a demo have more than a couple of minutes of gameplay in it. The BF:BC 2 demo, despite being only one map and one mode, has extreme replay value. Put in 40 hours so far and there's tens of tausands of people who have played far more than me.
 
Great game. Definitly a keeper.

Posted by ryuken

I'm very pleased with this game, I've been playing alot of waw/mw2 then alot of MAG (still playing alot of MAG) and now BC:2, it's bad ass, the feel reminds me of killzone2 but I like the maps better and the modes better. this game kicks so much ass. and to think I was never a fps guy until resistance fall of man.  
 
btw, the sound is the best out of any of the fps. it feels like I'm there, having a tank fire right over your head is so fucked up, its like you go deaf for a second. ........ buuuuwaaapp........ I love my speakers.
Posted by Agent47CSim2

Demo's great but I use shotgun and C4, in the assault class, to take out tanks as well as enemies. It's great.

Posted by Nintendude

I haven't really played FPS games other than Quake 3 (/ live) and some Team Fortress 2. 
 
I've played this demo quite much now and had no idea what the squad option would change. Team spawning makes perfect sense really and that's why they should explain some stuff about the squads on the loading screen. Thought it would give some more restricted headset talk between the squad members only...
 
Last time I played I managed to get my K/D ration around 1/1 and sometimes even better. Need to go back and try that squad feature now, maybe the game will be even better that way.

Yeah this video seems to be entirely to tell folks to SQUAD THE FUCK UP!

Posted by shuref00t

I've been having a lot of fun with the BF:BC2 demo. It'll definitely be a day one purchase for me. 
 
I prefer playing defense rather than attackers. It seems a bit easier when your whole team isn't totally coordinated, and shockingly nobody talks on the Xbox 360 demo (at least in the games I've played thus far).

Posted by RenMcKormack

Point your weapon or as more commonly known "gun" at someone from the other team or anyone.  Press the right trigger on your x-box360 gamepad (TM).  Repeat process until done. 
 
Battlefield is great.  Putting c4 on a truck/atv is classic old school.  In 1942 my friends and i would load up a plane with charges (same thing as c4 except you get a plunger instead of a remote control) and crash it into the opponent flag.  Also let DICE remake tribes please for the 360 do it BF 1943 style. 
 
any word on re-working the classes? Is it odd to anyone else that the recon sniper has c4 instead of the silnced sub-machinegun engineer class?

But can you shoot down UAVs?

Damn!!! The more I look at this my MW2 is definitely gonna be gathering alot of dust once this releases. :p

Posted by Reverseface

Both helicopters espically the black hawk need tweaking they are too weak and the firepower is seriously lacking. I'm a chopper pilot and love flying them but from past experience with the BF series these are not quite there it's like the black hawk nerf patch back in BF2 days.

I sincerely hope everyone immigrates to BFBC2. The first was so damn good...

Edited by Duckbutter

knowin a dude is hidin behind a wall, so on the other side of it i stick on some C4 and blow him back to Jesus, then run my ass cheeks off because Black Hawk Down spotted me and is tryin to rocket me to death from the sky, jump in a shack for cover but hear a bunch of metal bending, then Blade Running the shit outta that shack because its Twin Towering to the ground, Black Hawk Down is still up there and Josh Hartnett is still tryin to execute me from the clouds, so i gotta stand on top of a building right in the middle of cross fire and Snipe a dude using the Surface to Air Missle gun on my homies, then Rambo my way to the Missle gun, pull the trigger, and blow Josh Hartnett out the sky. 
 
and all of that is why i play the Battlefield Company 2 demo more than i play MW2.

This video should be essential watching for anyone who is going to be playing any multiplayer FPS.
 
That or developers should design their games to force players to play as a team a la Team Fortress 2.
 
Either way, everyone should be forced to watch this video before playing. After a while, they might get that winning the match is more important than their K/D ratio.

emigrate means leave
immigrate means enter.
if i move from US to Italy, i would be immigrating to Italy and Emigrating from the US.

Loved to buzz my team back to life as a medic. Was camping behind a building at the same time and that established a front line, until the building was nothing but debris, then i got sniped, love it.
