There's so many good games coming out this fall, I'm not sure I could choose 1 as the one I'm looking forwad to the most.
Battlefeild 1942, Robin Hood, AOM, MOH Team Assult, H&D2 (hopefully it'll be out by fall).

Why is C3 on the list, That can't be coming out already.:confused:

Jeez another poll

I voted generals, can't wait to see what they have done with that game, C3 isn't something i'n waiting for yet as it will take more than a year before it comes, other game i'm waiting for is swat urban justice, which might become a big hit with the swat movie coming out.

I acctually think that cnc series is better than the commandos series. but I play commandos more currently, it changes from time to time...

We've been fighting spam polls at General Forum and admins are almost at the point of disabling poll feature altogether. Post a poll only when numbers/votes are statistically important and not just because you want to try out nice poll feature :rolleyes: . In this case, poll is not necessary. Poll is closed.

Now that's been said, I, too, wait for Hitman2, C3 and some others. And 1shot, dunno what your friends got there (maybe some kind of beta test release), but Hitman2 is going to be released in september.

Sorry that I did not answer earlier, i was on a weeks trip to a friends cottage.

Hitman 2 is not released, not in any country. Your friends must in that case have the beta, which is both much worse than the original when it is released, and illegal to have if you are not an official beta tester.

Thorup: Salem is tobacco alright, but a lot of other things too. For example some cities in USA, a city in Sweden and the cat in Sabrina the Teenage witch, which i was a fan of for some years ago.

now this (http://www.ea.com/eagames/official/battlefield1942/home.jsp) is a game i am definatly going to buy this summer, if you got broadband try out the demo, in the full game you get to control: tanks, jeeps, halftracks, howitzers, fighters, bombers, destroyers, higgins boats, submarines, aircraft carriers and ofcourse infantery. Only infantery, tanks and howitzers in the Tobruk demo level though but still very cool.

You know if you're looking for a game that's like Commandos try out Robin Hood this fall (I think... it could be fall 2003 but I doubt it)... anyways it's from the creators of Desperados but it has a dynamic campaign and some innovative features which look rather interesting... I'd better get back to playing Desperados which I've reinstalled for the 7th time to replay... can't say the same for Commandos 2... only got 1.5 games out of that...

LOL, Not too many people like Desperados around here for some reason. I personally love the game, as it's a great game, but that's just me.

Anyways Robin Hood is due out November of 2002, but there should be a demo out before then...Can't wait to pick that game up. :)

It's nothing like medal of honour at all, most importantly medal of honour is filled with scripted events, in battlefield 1942 nothing is scripted, nothing will happen twice, also it's mostly based on the multiplayer, up to 64 people can battle at the same time.
And for the graphics they are great, the maps are very large, they even spend alot of detail on the vehicles and infantery and still it runs very smooth.

Actually if you're looking for a awesome game I would look at C&C: Generals. Now that game looks awesome and the gameplay must top charts, because most C&C games I've played have been outstanding, and I doubt they would fail now. I mean what game is better than Real-time strategy where you build you own forces and wage out real-time war.........how cool is that. You guys should look into that game. Looks to be a winner.

If your looking for a good game that's coming out this fall...besides AOM, The MOH Expansion and Robin Hood, try Conflict: Desert Storm.

I downloaded the demo two nights ago and finally got a chance to play it last night and it's pretty good. It's like H&D, except there's not 1st person mode and it takes place during the Gulf War, not WW2.

That company is called Spellbound Studios. www.spellbound.de

The site is only offered in German, they use to have an English version of the site but for some reason it was taken off :(

Vampire Hunter may be something interesting. It's using the same engine as Desperados and Robin Hood, so we should already be familiar with the gameplay style.

Forget about MoH, it's 1 big bunch of scripted events, try BF1942, i got my copy today and spent the last 8 hours playing it, it's the best game i have ever seen by far, compared to this even HL is nothing.

After just playing the demo for black hawk down, I can honestly say that I think the demo sucks.

Before some of you guys start to get upset, I'll explain why I feel this way.

1. The graphics look outdated. Games like MOHAA and BF1942, look way better. Also what's up with the terrain? 100% flat.

2. The controls are way to sensitive. I'm not sure if I can turn this down but I've looked and seen nothing for this. When I tap on the guy takes like 3 or 4 steps instead of 1, like in most normal games. Also the mouse is ver sensitive, which makes it hard to zero in on a target.

3. What's up with the M16? You can zoom in with it, making the sniper rifle useless. Conflict: Desert Storm has the same problem...Don't like that.

4. The demo has crashed for me about 3 or 4 times already. Even had to reboot once to fix it :mad:

5. The game doesn't feel like a war game. It's more like a Quake style game. Keep in mind that it's a Capture the Flag kind of map, however there are so many machine gun post around, so many buildings to jump off of that people are just gonna play it like any other FPS game, which is the Quake style.

6. You can blow up a car with 3 bullets?...ok... :confused:

7. The gernades get tossed a mile.

8. Once you run out of gernades, you still have one left in your hand, but you can't throw it... :rolleyes:

Oh well that's all I can think of right now.

P3 550 mhz, 256K RAM, 13g HD. My little 550 chip is pretty slow by today's standards but it still does a decent job with even most of the newer games. Gotta upgrade that soon, also the puny HD. The GeForce 4, though -- wow!!

1shot1kill
24th Sep 2002, 23:16
Well, 500 mhz is minimum for BF1942, that will be on low detail though, you videocard does help, need at least a geforce 2 with advanced Transform & Lighting to be able to run it. I'm running it on my athlon 800, 512mb ram, geforce 2 mx and i can run it on 800×600 medium detail. (800×600 seems low but it's the best resolution in the game when you got a geforce 2, otherwise the text will screw up) The biggest problem with your cpu will be that you can't use many bots in singleplayer as they use alot of cpu power.

30th Nov 2002, 10:20
It isn't as bad as most of the BF1942 fanboys make out either. It is actually quite good, what MOHAA should've been, but it for no explainable reason runs like a three legged dog, and is rediculously short.

Most of the major and glaring problems in MOHAA were addressed to some extent, but they went and created a whole wath of new ones with this one. The MP code still sucks (but it's better than BF1942 still)

Personally I love watching the MOHAA and BF 1942 fanboys argue it out over which of their glorified quake mods is more realistic :)

Well, to pay 30 dolars for an add-on that adds 3 weapons and 2 maps no it's not supposed to be that way. A good add-on preferably adds a totally new group to the game, ie. in the upcoming BF1942 add-on the Italians are added. Loads of new weapons is a must in a fps, so not 3 but more like a dozen. And loads of new maps, also like a dozen or so, the BF1942 add-on only got 6 but that the maps are 8×8 km explains why.

I bought GTA 3 last monday, pretty cool, i hope they will release Vice City on the PC soon.

I have played all the Warcraft games and the Starcraft Ones as well, and your right it is the same ol' same ol'

I was most interested in how the interface has changed, with its changing angle.. but fairly quickly it became pointless, if you zoom in on the action you cant see anything properly... and the movement becomes very awkward. And at this angle the characters look blocky almost like a doom monster, which didn't blow my whistle

I also think that the control panel takes up far too much screen real estate

I haven't played any MP with it as i haven't learnt all the short cuts yet

I liked the Scenario story, but i wanted more.....

My favorite mission at the moment is the Warchasers mission in the custom game Scenario folder, Just got through that using the Beast Knight and thought it was quite challenging, and better without worrying about the economy

Just cause i'm a commandos fan doesn't mean i dont like economy based games, but after playing a game like total annhilation, the poor production controls really let Warcraft 3 down
