    Agreed. I think there are some things that need patching for balance reasons, but there haven't been any bugs I've seen so far, and hardcore mode is just as awesome as it was in BC2.

    Do things look slightly washed out though? I mean, when I am moving, the game looks amazing, but when I am sitting still some of the textures look almost cartoon like.

    Re: BF3 is overrated and overhyped

    At first I wasn't sure about getting BF3 and so I am glad to say that I am really enjoying it so far. I don't feel that it is overhyped - I am finding to be just as fun as any of the past BF games. I have played for hours at a time without any bugs or crashes. I was having some connection issues, but that turned out be my ISPs fault and not the games.

    HC mode I can't comment on. I always found it to frustrating in BC2, so I think I will be avoiding it in BF3.

    You play what you feel like most to play, but do not let HC scare you. Just takes some more think-before-action and teamkill applies.

    So be more carefull, but same is to be said of your teammates who can TK you. In other words: you are also dependant on them.

    Re: BF3 is overrated and overhyped

    I actually enjoyed HC quite a bit when I first tried it. I can remember thinking "Wow, my guns actually hurt people now!".

    But on some maps HardCore became SnipeCore, and the game felt like it wasn't balanced as good as normal (just my opinion). I started getting frustrated and went back to regular servers.

    Re: BF3 is overrated and overhyped

    I agree that Party Join is broken and it is probably the most annoying issue at the moment. Beyond that... I think that the maps are decisively not suitable for 64 man battles - heck, they are 32 player maps with some extra flags. With 32, it is a fine game.

    It's near unplayable half the time.
    Except for the friends thing (which I haven't tried) I've been able to play without issue for 7 hours now. Your luck must be pretty bad.
