Well, the RTR hype is over, the game is losing popularity due to Desert Combat these days, nobody plays RTR anymore and even when I check EA and NVIDIA servers they're very often empty or only has 2-4 players in them. My feelings Secret Weapons will be this way in the long run as well.
The free and popular Desert Combat is winning over the non-free expansion pack with very few new features.
i bought RTR and i never play it, i never really played it much in the first place!
For all you planning to buy it, don't. I'm not going to get the next one either, it looks pretty lame
RtR is boring because you can only use the new features on those maps. And I don't like Baytown or Santa Croce or Salerno. That leaves 3 maps and they're not worth 20 bucks. I like the original maps better. If they changed Secret Weapons to something more realistic then I'd be into it, but I'm getting tired of BF1942 because EA keeps ****ing everything up.
secret weapons looks uber lame, a jetpack? yeah right.
I only like one map in rtr, and thats monte cassino or whatever its called, and i only like it when i play using rtr bonus thingy
what bonus thingy?
Road to Rome isn't that bad, it's just not that good either. Out of the 6 new maps I only liked 2: Anzio and Monte Cassino. And this next expansion... I'm not even going to bother with it unless they remove the jetpack. I mean... come on, a ****ing jetpack!? That's ridiculous. And whats more is it dishonors all the men who died in WW2 by adding this jetpack thing because it's putting a "what-if the Germans invented this" type thing. If I saw a jetpack in Return to Castle Wolfenstein then I wouldn't really care because that game is insane as it is. But in BF1942 that's just repulsive. Why not just focus on HISTORIC REALISM DAMN IT!!! The original BF1942 isn't even as accurate as it could be either! EA/Dice should have spent more time to giv each side their own guns atleast. I mean the Russians and Japanese even use the same Submachine gun for their medic class... and the Mp18 is a GERMAN SMG from WORLD WAR ONE!!! Sure maybe some would still be in use as an emergency weapon but even then why would they sell them to the Japanese if they were made obsolete by the MP40? And the Russians don't even have 1 single unique weapon. And the Americans don't get the M1 Garand or Springfield '03, instead they get the Lee Enfield '04 and '04 scoped... but they're BRITISH guns.
Basically I say screw Secret Weapons. I'm going to wait for Forgotten Hope.
I say F**k EA/DICE! They have dropped the ball too many times. Road to Rome only gave a few goodies like Monte Cassino, and the Mousquito fighter/bomber. It should have been released as a free add-on by EA/DICE. Some folks should get together with Madbull and, using his map editor, create a map editor/object placer & editor. Basically, there are enough talented folks in the BF community to make their own "Battlecraft '42", but one that will allow editing down to the finest of details. And it should be usable by ALL levels of designer skill, from the newb to the Mod God! Once again, F**k EA/DICE! Let's all take up SGT Tallman's battle cry and rely more on folks who mod. Forgotten Hope all the way!
Man this is bullshit. It's just like George Bush. Say whatever you want and he'll still ignore you and do what he think is right! TOTAL ****ING IDIOTS!
I just spent 20 bucks on beer! Ha! Stop complaining and play! Your question is up there with "will this game work with my card", bla, bla, bla, etc.. P.S. Kill all plane campers!
Don't tell me to stop complaining. I hate people that won't let others express their opinions. Perfect example in RTCW: "Panzers are cheap" "Shut up and play n00b you just suck" If the game is no good I'm not gonna keep my mouth shut, I'm gonna complain! If you bought a leather jacket that turned out to be too small you wouldnt say "blah blah blah why the hell am I complaining" You're complaining because it's too small!
