Pretty sure 300K of those went straight back to Game or went to CEX soon after, especially looking at their pre-owned shelves.

And?

Do lukewarm reviews and sales now warrant "ultimate editions" of games?

It did well over a million units in well under a month. 375k on day one.

Campaign was fun (if brain dead) but the multiplayer was absolutely tremendous.

But despite the coolness of being able to buy your weapons and vehicles whenever you wanted and the brilliant map design, the chances of this getting another look-in in the wake of Battlefield 3 are zero.

If you never played it first time around though don't write it off

Boom Street Review

The AV Club is terrible at reviewing games.

Some of their writers are hacks, but many of them definitely aren't.

For example, whether you agreed with it or not, that infamous Uncharted 3 review was exceptionally well argued

I'm going to have to try this out. The reviews are varying wildly. I'm still amazed that avclub gave it an A- and made it sound like some kind of demented masterpiece.

There is something very sixy about it though

Battlefield 3 a game that takes all the great things about Battlefield and ignores them in favour of a individual points system that encourages camping over teamwork.

I love Far Cry 2 so much, and this article was absolute toilet.

This is one game that truly deserves a proper, in-depth retrospective rather than a load of hot air about stuff that probably never even happened in the first place.

DICE wants your feedback on Battlefield 3 accessories

EddieMink

6 years ago

All it takes is a Recon with a SOFLAM and an Engineer with a Javelin, working together.

What's the chopper with only two seats that can't be repaired though? Every time I've targeted it with a SOFLAM I've died immediately afterwards, killing the spot. On a map as narrow as Wake Island, it's impossible to survive unless you run for cover
0 0

EddieMink

If you're having trouble bringing down a chopper then you have to work with someone to get the thing laser targeted and use a Javelin (or any other guided shell) to bring it down.

I thought that this was the solution too, but if the Recon soldier who targets it with the SOFLAM dies, so does the targeting reticule.

Again, this seems especially braindead when you consider the way that C4 prevails beyond death

That'll be someone in the.back.constantly i'm repair

Isn't the Viper the chopper with only two seats that can't be repaired mid-flight? If not, I meant the other one

EddieMink

Huh? 8 people shooting non-stop stinger missiles at a chopper and you couldn't bring it down? How does that work?

You tell me. I'd say it was someone cheating if it hadn't happened several times before.

Not only did the thing take multiple rockets, it was also almost impossible to lock-on to it unless you were standing about twenty in-game feet away. By which time you were toast.

It's broken

mines now disappear on death of the engineer

I wouldn't mind this so much if it was the same situation with the C4.

Now, if your tank gets caked in C4 and you're sharp enough to leap out of your tank and kill the chump who's laying it, they can still detonate it once they've re-spawned a few seconds later.

And that is utter, utter bollocks

This isn't really a massive problem, but the utterly fucked up air perks most certainly are.

Once you've unlocked every perk on the Viper and the Frogfoot you can remain completely untouchable in the air. Last night I watched two full squads of four relentlessly pepper a Viper with non-stop Stinger missiles, to sweet fuck-all avail.
