    I'm not sure about the sniper scope in this. The turn time is way too slow when zoomed in so you can't really track a target if they're running. Also, I think it should be a one shot kill to the chest.

    So, in terms of playing with friends you can either; start a lobby and invite everyone, hoping that you can fill all 24 slots required to start the game, or, do a squad match, invite 3 friends and the 4 of you go into a random match as a team?

    Did anyone manage to sucessfully just join a game one of their friends were in?

    I also flipped my controls over as well so its much easier to fly.

    I knew you could invert the controls, but didn't know you could flip them over as well. This should be much better as it did feel weird steering/rolling with the right stick to me!

    Hmm, this won't let me download the demo, or even access it on the marketplace at all.

    Get bent.

    \o/ Thank fuck for that. I was finding it totally backwards to pitch/roll on the right stick.

    according to some random guy who read the whole ea agreement thing at the start, microsoft send them your "payment details". i can understand generic (or not so generic) personal info, but payment details?? wonder if that's just some boilerplate text that's been left in.

    What a brilliant little game.

    None of the changes made to streamline it have really affected anything and it feels so good to be back in the Pacific, especially when it looks a nice as it does now. If they can just get extra servers sorted out so I do have to spend most of the evening sat in the Main MMen, it would be even better.

    Best 1200 points EVAR.

    /joins in with the rejoicing
    I know it was used in other BF games but having acceleration and braking on the left trigger & bumper is slightly confusing for even the land vehicles.

    This is so good it should be made illegal!

    Apologies to people I sent invites out to / sent invites to me, it was really hard to get a game going or to get into a game but once you do - you're loathe to move!

    Brilliant stuff though, once I'd stopped wrestling with the controls this really felt like classic battlefield but improved immensely. New Wake Island has some ace improvements to alleviate some of the pinch points and problems with the old map.

    I think I'll end up losing myself to this game for quite some time to come. See you on the battlefield later on :)

    Does anyone mind checking this for me? As in, just click on it in Marketplace and see if it loads to the screen where you can download the game/demo, thanks.

    Get bent.

    Weird that I still can't get games this morning, I mean come on who else is playing at half nine in the morning? There should be plenty of space on the servers.

    Maybe they've shut them down for maintenance at a time when they figured very few people would be on.

    a comment from one tester was that they had to take down servers last night at one point and only 5000 could play at any one time!
    Not official

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    I think I need to get a few more of you on my friends list. At one point I was in a party of 10 of us, but could only actually hear LB.

    Whilst I quite enjoyed his gin-powered commentary of the game, the one way direction of any conversation was a little confusing :)

    I did once. Joined through Uglygamer, there were some familiar EG faces there.

    Tried to join in last night. I got a little confused trying to join StarchildHypocrethes party/games and then got stuck waiting for a game of my own to come free. Eventually go online with very little lag (although not til 10ish last night) looks good although the maps are going to get dull quickly - how many get relaesed when we hi tthe kill total?

    I saw this earlier this morning. I guess they really don't want anymore people buying it at the moment!
