I got on the premium bandwagon early. Even though I slag it off a lot, and it frustrates me immensely I will still be playing it through all the incarnations it delivers.
The AK maps, with the possible exception of Armoured shield, are actually really good. They suit different game modes in different ways. But Bandor desert is a well crafted, if a little dull, map for all game modes.
I'm currently working on all the medals, so all I have left is the new conquest and Tank superiority ones. So when I go back to normal game modes .i.e. Rush. Then I'll be able to see how they mix it with the others.
If there is one thing about AK I don't like, then it is Tank Superiority. Badly implemented, badly designed, bad physics and incredible frustrating to play. Especially on large pop servers. They really should have included quads and/or jeeps just to allow people to get to the frontline at the very least. And possible a transport helo, not a little bird or AH, just a bog standard transport that you could rage around in. They missed a trick by not putting a blackhawk in, it's not like they don't have the models already.
And the tank physics. Jesus. The amount of times I've been swearing at the computer because the damn tank is jiggling around like its being blown by the wind. These things are 20-30 ton behemoths and yet they can't sit still on anything other than extremely flat ground. And oh, for the option of a handbrake.
But still. I payed for premium. And a few niggles aside like the gunship in rush, I like the game.
Don't like EA, but I like the game.
