Just got the August issue of OXM and it has a XBL enabled demo of BF2. Didn't get a chance to try it yet. If anyones tried it, let the impressions roll.

I've played the Playstation 2 version and wasn't too impressed simply because I am used to the Battlefield universe with a mouse and keyboard.  This isn't Battlefield 2...it's Battlefield: Modern Combat.  I'm going to very much doubt the console versions will be able to hold a candle to the PC version.

It says BattleField 2: Modern Combat on the mag I'm pretty sure, but anyhow I use a KB&M on my xbox with the SmartJoy Frag.

you too? heh smile The only downside is sometimes vehicular controls are messed up.

For instance in Halo2, driving is HARD using keyboard and mouse based on the systems expectation.

here's a visual.

analog X axis   L------------------------[deadzone]----------------------R
when driving if you are going to turn right around, you hold hard L or R on analog and they have an equivilant to mouse-accelleration where you speed up once it's been held for a certain amount of time. (less than a second).

With a mouse, you would just whip it left or right, taking miliseconds. To turn with around while in a vehicle you need to drag the mouse at a decent speed for much longer to get the same turning effect.

Since BF2 plays much like Halo2, I expect the same problems with controls.

I used to have problems driving in Halo2, but I now have a seperate SmartJoy profile for driving. In the driving profile I have the deadzone cranked up to ~80 and it makes it much easier to drive. So when I jump in a vehicle I hit <F2> and when I exit the vehicle I hit <F1>, simple as that.
