Is there any thoughts on the inlusion of: 1. Commonwealth troops in the Pacific/China. 2. Maps representing Partisan action (pro and anti soviet) on the Eastern Front. 3. The Chinese army.
There are a few things why I think that it's worth mentioning partisan operations, primarily because the engine in BF2 is far superior to 1942 in rendering infantry combat.
About a China campaign... I've never really seen a game represent the combat in China or the actions of Commonwealth efforts against the Japanese. China was an enormous front, the combat that took place there rivaled the ferocity and depravity of the Eastern Front. China was a 2nd front that took a toll on them not different from the German campaign in Russia.
China would provide a new, interesting Campaign with a fresh template for level design... Imgaine the Chinese defense of the great wall of China, or the harrowing clash at Burma, battles over foothills, dense jungles, and mountain temples. As much as I love WWII games, France is definately turning into tired level design. There's only so much you can do with Normandy.
Plus you'd have an opportunity to have some new weapons, such as the Enfield 05 and the Owen gun. You'd be able to present the (eccentric) Chinese arsenal against the Japanese and provide the Japs an opportunity to finally have superior armor against their foe, for once requiring the allies to be more mobile than the axis.
I'm aware that people don't usually think of China when they think of WWII, but it needs to be represented somehow. It's not famous, but China was a theatre that played a major role in the collapse of Imperial Japan. While I'd be comfortable with China being one of the last campaigns the FH2 team works on (as it's not as popular as the European and African fronts) I hope it's included eventually.
You guys have FINLAND in FH for god's sake. The Russo-finnish war was shorter and of a smaller scale than the Sino-Japanese war, and far less passionate. The conflict in China was enormous, expansive, lengthly, and personal. It deserves better representation.
And so it begins again..
I wholeheartedly agree and many others will, people have spoke about this for a long time and for whatever reason(s) they weren't included in FH1 but I beleive I heard that it's likely, time forbidding to be included in FH2.
Dont wanna sound rude, but try the search function next time :P Has been brought up many many many times. It might even be there for fh2 because the voicews would already be tehre.

Yea, and the chinese face models as well.
I take what n0e says way too seriously

which chinese? china was experiencing a civil war in addition to the one with japan. you want the communists lead my Mao? or the other guys led by Chang Kai Scheck? you gotta be more specific.
You could almost make a whole mod on various wars in China from say 36-42?ish.
You got japanese, commenwealth, chinese and many many battles. Would be fun, I hope they make it to Bf2.
I have long been a supporter for adding China to the mod, but no matter how much we scream, its up the devs.
I agree, we need china in the mod. What else are we going to drink our tea in?
Seriously though, I'm all for adding China in the mod later on, but I'd rather see other theatres in first.
