I hope they fix the vehicle control, specifically the aircraft.. otherwise, back to COD for me!

Historically the explanation for the "poor vehicle control" (especially the aircraft!) is that it's a game balance thing. They already have enough problems with people waiting for vehicles to spawn instead of just moving on and playing the game. The vehicles can be rather OP as well, if the were seamless to operate, they'd definitely be OP. Lastly, outside of the cars/atvs non of the vehicles should be easy to us, especially the aircraft, if for no other reason than realism.

(Also to my understanding they've been getting better with every iteration, but I don't think they'll ever make em "easy" to use.)

I don’t know.. saying “difficult controls make it more balanced or realistic” seems to be an excuse for bad game design. I know DICE themselves have given that reasoning.. but there are other ways to address those issues, other than unintuitive controls.

I don't see anything wrong with the vehicle controls, the aircraft are not easy to fly.  It takes some time to get used to them, and once you think you know how to fly a helicopter some bad ass "pilot" gets up there and blows you out of the sky.  A lot to the helicopter is having a crew up there with you, a good gunner (if needed) and a repairman are essential to staying up in the air for a given amount of time.  Or if you're a gunner having a pilot that knows how to keep a target in the window.  Its definitely not easy.

As for the Jets, they're difficult too.  But once you rank it up and get some of the better upgrades it gets better.  Still a bitch though.  But oh so much fun! 

Just hop in a tank.  There is nothing wrong with the controls on those things.  What a blast. 

But this will definitely be a NextBox or bust. 


I didn't play BF3 outside of the beta so I don't really know how the controls faired. I remember them being difficult in previous iterations and they got better in later ones. Even at their worst I would say it was hard to learn but not impossible to master. Crazy ass PC guys totally bought flight sticks for BF2 which I always found kinda amusing.

I read that BF4 was running on an AMD Radeon HD 7990 ‘Malta’ video card. How does that compare to the rumored neXtBOX specs?

I love driving in BF3. Especially the smaller jeeps, atvs, and motorcycles. DICE did Rallisport Challenge on the Xbox. How those cars drive is exactly how the light transport vehicles feel. So I have no problem tooling around while someone else on top shoots. Flying on the other hand is a nightmare. I have no idea how some of these people on YouTube can fly with such precision. I had a hard enough time keeping things straight in the chopper co-op missions. Jets too to a point, I'm not nimble with those either.

Surely this isn't a true presentation of how it will play, the helicopter (you'll see) should have been able to clear that floor.  We'll see. Not sure about the graphics, I'm viewing it from shitty hospital connection so I'm watching it in shit mode. (complete shit mode)

the game looks incredible, and having 60fps on it could be the knockout blow to COD.   

BF4, Halo, COD, Titan Fall.. all 60fps of greatness... i can't wait!

I don't know I feel about playing hour(s) long games but hearing the dice guy say its the exact same experience on the console as the PC and seeing that video of the aircraft carrier battle makes me a belieber.  I want to play 64 mp!
