That game does look pretty amazing.... I'll probably hold fire and see how the reviews are and what the comments are like.

I don't like the idea of having to download EA's service, but if it's not intrusive and can be disabled other than when I want to play the game, then I may buy it.

I have it installed on my PC at home, its EA's version of Steam, but IMO no where near as good.

Seems your gonna have to use it for BF3 and probably all other new EA games... :./


There were reports of it using high amounts of CPU power during the BF3 Alpha trial, but that will be fixed says EA.... Place your bets,.

Wow!! That's so awesome! It looks every bit as real as real life! I bet the people who aren't EA fans and who were turned off by the news of it not being avail on Steam are going to change their minds

That really does look good... really really good!

I'm going to hang on a little while to see if it does appear on Steam, as I think EA will probably push it to steam after a while - citing an agreement between the two, but in reality just happy to catch more users the 2nd time round.
