DICE, the company that created the breakthrough online multiplayer, Battlefield: Bad Company, just released another breakthrough game - (in regards to it being a cheap downloadable) - Battlefield: 1943. You can pick it up at XBL or the Playstation online market (PSN?) for around AU$20. It's 550mb download, or there abouts. It comes out on PC in September, sometime.
If you want explodey goodness, GET the those two Battlefield games. You won't be disappointed.
I gave them a bit of stick via Twitter for a late release - (but wasn't their fault, REALLY) - and now you can't get online multiplayer here for lack of servers, or something. Apparently that's being rectified, quick sticks.
Normally, Battlefield is a game you can play online every time you kick it in the guts. Billions of yanks online - (they usually snag hosting) - at any given time and the condition of the Aussie internet makes for a chore getting a game fairly frequently with Call of Duty 4. Battlefield have never had that drama. Usually you always can get a game.
I gave the tutorial a run this morning and it looks great. There's nothing comparable around for the same price. I'll do a vid later when it's up and running because I know EVERYONE who reads my blogs gives a shit.
