    Hope they don't release with all the bugs from scratch and make us update with all the patches and blot all their files (and our HDD). God Damn EA, if you have produced 3 versions of Battlefield and if you cannot get this right from start better you stop doing this business.

    Meh, Dice isn't anything special, mod group that got funded out the ass by EA, and it shows. BF 2142 was not WAY too much different than than BF2. Visually sure, but all they really added was the rank system. If Dice doesn't step up on this franchise they will begin to loose a lot of fans imo.

    I am happy to see support for OS X.
