then hop over to our shipyard to begin manufacturing more units.


sounds like everybody enjoys this, definetly will make the game iteresting, now people wont want to attack just the carriers, this will split the defense and offense....interesting tatics

look near the top of the article, you must click on the orange block that says "Movies" and it will take you to their selection of movies.

I noticed that. There was also a stuttering near the end with a Japanese divebomber? but I was thinking taht may be some kind of lag more than a game issue.

Yeah,it just kept going back and forth...maybe its because the turret isn't supposed to turn that far. I bet its fixed before the final release.

well the turrents were really warping from one side to the other but yet the rest of the screen looked really fluid,Im not so sure thats a lag issue..Now the aircraft,yeah that could have been lag..

i think the video on GamesRadar is comparitively old seeing how ign.com, teamxbox.com, and gamespot have not mentioned such a flaw in their "hands-on" time. These sources usually make a note of such flaws in their previews, but for BM they did no such thing.

i remember demos/betas from a lot of flight sims had this problem with gunners turrets on bombers...guessing when there are a lot of controls it takes some time to tweak them just right.

it could maybe be a lagging issue, but like you said one of the other major websites definetly would have mentioned this, the lag was too great too miss

ya, they wouldn't have missed a glitch like that, and it wasn't only a one time thing, it happened twice in their video, but compared to other glitches in other games, this one seems to be a minor one, they didn’t fall through the world, and i think it was only one gun

the more i watch the multiplayer video from GamesRadar almost every ship displayed has this problem with at least one of the turrets. however, watching the walkthrough video (IN HD) there is nothing like this evident, which leads me to believe that this issue has been fixed.

yes i watch all of the videos frequently, having downloaded them...

5 game trailers (in HD)
1 game walkthrough (in HD)
2 gameplay videos (in SD)
