I enjoyed 1943 as much as the next man, but OMFG do EA fail hard online!
That makes absolutely no sense. You liked 1943, but EA fail online? You see the contradiction there, right? You appear to be one of those people who still think it's cool to bash EA. Move on buddy, it's Activision everyone is berating these days! Or you could just give the whole 'X pulisher iz teh suxxors' vibe a rest and just get on with playing the games you enjoy. Just a thought.
It's a different prospect. BC2 is far more involved in teamwork than CoD is. CoD is the layman's choice, it's simple, quick, immediate gratification. Those who want to graft a little harder, to think more and be a bit strategic about things would gravitate towards BC2.
Personally I have no love for CoD. It has gradually gotten worse and worse for years to the point where I can't even be bothered with it now. Unbalanced, trite rubbish. BC2 in comparison has an air of freshness about it... and vehicles, which is the money shot IMO. The Vietnam expansion is looking sweet as.
