Map brieging is a MUST. I just hate it when a new map loads and you have no idea what the battle is all about. I don't have time to search the web for all the hundreds of battles that happened in WW2 so that's why I want the info in my loading screen so I have something to do while waiting for the loading to finish. I hate staring at some boring render picture.
Take a look at my post again. Closer this time.
FH2 loding screens cant really look much different then BF2s loading screens. So they will probly just have the minimap, and some map descriptions. Which is just as good, seeing as some FH2 maps will be pretty complex gameplay wise, its best to have a bit of a briefing before you jump in.
I trhink that FH2 should take a cue from BF2's and give some data about the map that the new players are about to play. And even if it gets old, at least it gives you something to read during the ungodly load times.
