    EA Jacks up all the good games (as Ian)

    EA used to make good games. They made/published Battlefield 1942 and Battlefield 2/Vietname/2142/BC1/BC2/MOH:AA series.
    Then we get to BF3/BF4/New MOH series. They jacked up these games bad. Lets look at BF3. They stated that the game would have enhanced destructibility from BC2. Being able to punch a hole through a building to get from point A to point B. The removed the ability to drop ANY building to the ground and destruct just about anything like you could in BF:BC2. Then come the guns, yes there is bullet drop but the guns keep getting balanced and nerfed or buffed to where they make no sense. Example, the pp-19 drops someone with less bullets than the M98B .338 Lapua Magnum Sniper Rifle at close range unless you get a head shot. Then there is the splash damage from rockets. If you fire an RPG at someone (RPG stands for Rocket Propelled GRENADE), the chances of you killing the player are slim unless you hit them directly. Odd, since an RPG IRL will destroy a vehicle and cause serious damage to bystanders. Granted this is not ArmA II but come on. Then there is the "pay to win" where EA released the ability to buy all the weapon upgrades and weapons in one go without working for them. Next, is the BF4 already coming out soon. Where is BC3?
    Then we can head over to the MOH series that recently came out. It was a nice premise but they botched the Multiplayer and the single player laft much to be desired. What ever happened to the MoH games that took a while to complete the single player missions. The should have followed ArmA II's single player campaign methods as well as their co-op of the entire campaign too. Also, quicktime action scenes are not cool. EA really messed up several series and took alot of the fun out of them. Until EA fixes this, they will not see anymore of my money. Instead Bohemia Interactive will see mine for DayZ standalone and ArmA III. There is real progress and innovation. In ArmA II there was already the ability to drop pretty much any building ingame as well as make craters in the ground. anslate?sl=de&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=de&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=ht -Land-zu-Wasser-und-in-der-Luft-849838%2F
