I've heard there's a DIRECTX file missing but you can fix at Microsoft.com/directx site, just install Direct X again, and that might fix it. Buddy told me about it. My system was already patched I guess
It's cool but the busy servers get choppy 30+ up to 64 players and it gets laggy
glitchy just like all the other Q3 engine based games. For those of you who dont know, these games go back from the original Q based engine. Glitchy, and very hackable. Be ready for all the exploited wallhacks and aimbots to come. Just fyi. But decent looking.
EA has gone to great lengths to keep hacks out of the game with the PunkBuster software bundled into their games.
I tried it on Friday night. It is pretty cool. I just don't want to spend any more time then I already do staring at a video screen. I like EA's business model with their games though, very inovative. Video games have come a long way since pong.
