I didn't have a chance to read the AAR yet but I played that battle last week. I got crushed. Just looking at the screen shots made me break into a cold fear based sweat.It's late so i'll make this short and sweet. Normal Dude has recently posted an CM:A AAR located here http://www.battlefront.com/community/showthread.php?t=92149.
That could be it. I got a fairly hot new card a few months ago and felt like I had been playing a different game than everyone else for the last few years. Kinda like getting a new eyeglass perscription...You don't realize how bad your eye are until you see how bad your eyes are.You sure this is not the other guy just having a better graphics card and higher settings?
Odd but I can see what you mean. As I've mentioned before there is a much darker feel to the game than CMSF. I think I have equated it to the different in feel between CMBO and CMBB. But it doesn't come across as clearly in these screen shots. Maybe this one:This is hopefully an example of what a few pictures cant tell us. Those screenshots could easlily have been taken from CMSF and so the game looks no different to me from it (with the obvious exception of weapons that is).
I plays closer to WW2 than to 2008, in my opinion. And all the scenarios I have played have been extremely hard for me to win as Russian. However, I blame my suckyplay as much as the scenarios. I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "tell me if the experience differs mechanically from CMSF." Do you mean from a UI point of view or a tactical gameplay point of view?Theres no mention of how the game plays out in relation to a CMSF game. Has anyone played CMA? And if so, can they tell me if the experience differs mechanically from CMSF. Also, I would hope it would be different as if not, what the heck is taking it sooooooooo long?
A bit of both really. I imagine your infantry are still gaggling around, but has the UI changed in any way? Is there a feeling that cover is better or that soldiers choose better defensive positions for example.I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "tell me if the experience differs mechanically from CMSF." Do you mean from a UI point of view or a tactical gameplay point of view?
