Aussies should be advised that they're paying a lot extra on this title (200%).

That is backwards. Going to give the demo a go as well though.

It's currently on a 50% sale - so only a 100% markup??

just installed and had a run on a 300+ ping server

first impression is not bad - definitely will be playing the demo a bit more - but not sure that will translate to a purchase even at half price. The servers being connected to maybe only demo servers - not sure if we can see the full version ones.

EDIT: played some more with a full server and you know what...i would have rather spent $100 on this than blackops. This game runs smoothly compared to the fps lag and horrible rego that comes with blackops on my pc...im quite impressed...yes its somewhere between cod and BC2. its more like ffow on a smaller map size.

Ok I had a run. This is what I found -
  • It played windowed for me (not sure if that is in the game too) with no way of going full screen.
  • The server browser had no consistency. One update and it wont find a server under 300 ping, the next there are some more local servers.
  • When I found a sserver it wouldnt connect me it would just say "loading...."
  • One bloke was unstoppable - he could run 5 times faster than everyone else and was killing everyone instantly.
  • Everything just looks small.
  • The graphics were pretty poor
Verdict - not worth the money - I thought the latest MOH was the closest in style and I am glad I paid $50 for it (as it was far superior) and not the $90 for this.

there is a graphics option dropdown selector for full screen, windowed full or windowed.


MOH now there is a game that is undervalued

I might go back and have a look at it un-windowed. I should have put some good points there as it obviously does have them.
