    Think one of the classes will have an aim bot? Seems only logical if one of them can already wall hack and the other can blow up things by clapping. :hehe:

    Maybe another class can fly.. Then again, that's what the airplane is for I suppose :p

    Sounds like they've really thought about making this accessible, simple fun to me.

    Restricting the purchases to non-influential items is brilliant too - they've not gone down the money-whore route. :)

    I wasn't even going to have a go at this, but that interview's changed my mind: review is the decider. :D

    I have to say, the game really was a shock hit at the show. After the interview was over Ben and I had a chat about how a lot of people seemed to have gone to the show interested in little more than Left4Dead and a chance to play that - but then the Battlefield Heroes presentation wowed everyone and the stand was packed.

    I got a chance to sit down with one of the level designers and play a quick game too and though it was clear the game still needed some tweaking (if there's a jeep down on the beach in the final version, then I want you to know that was partly my idea) to get as truly fluid as they want it to be, it's still an incredibly polished and fun game.

    I quite like the idea, being free it doesn't really matter if its not brilliant it becomes more like a really polished flash game you play when your bored. The thing that really puts me off is the third person view.

    I can't wait for this to come out. I ahve been following it for a while now. According to the web site, BETA testing is just around the corner.

    Typo? "
    The three classes are the Soldier, the Gunner and the Commander" - later referenced as the commando. although a commander class would be very interesting!

    I shall be getting this, though I think it will be too casual for me to play a lot, seems like a fun thing to pick up and play. Crucially, as I go to a fair amount of LANs and even now not everyone has even counter strike source - this can be downloaded by all and played for free!

    It sounds like it'll be a laugh. Hopefully it will be accessible enough for me to try and convince my GF to play...

    You should try and find the trailer for it on youtube, its quite funny and at one point you've got a guy on each wing while flying.
