As a fan of the original, I tried the demo last night. All I can say is, these guys really need to make a simulation FPS. That building destruction is simply out of this world!
On a more negative note, back when FOW was released, I treid it but promptly boycotted the game as soon as I found out they had friendly fire hardcoded off with no ability to turn it on (which was definitely not the case in the original SHWW2). Imagine a war where you never had to check your fire, and could blast away at anyone and everyone with no repercussions! Pretty stupid decision by the devs, imo...
Can anyone with the full game of Men at War let us know if there is a toggle for friendly fire or not? I got a very bad feeling when I did not see this option in the demo. Such an awesome system to go to waste like that.
I am a big, big fan of these developers. If you have played the previous titles, the gameplay has barely changed. Only a couple of very very minor interface refinements.
Co-op was particularly laggy on the previous two installments. Unplayably so. I wouldn't get my hopes if I were you.
I havent even bothered to test the new one for it.
Not sure if you were referring to FOW or SHWW2 specifically here, but a couple of buds and I had a great time playing through the coop campaign on SHWW2 without any lag issue. Maybe in FOW things got worse?
