But for all the new "unlockable" toys (which come with increased rank), somehow infantry combat has taken a big step backwards in the future of 2142. The feel of being on foot can be best described as "swimmy" - moving around feels thick and unresponsive, and heaven help you if you are on a moving Titan. Worse still, most of the futuristic weapons feel insubstantial, sound like sewing machines and don't often hit what they're aimed at. Yuck.
But the Battlefield franchise has always highlighted vehicle-on-vehicle violence, and obviously, this is still where it shines the brightest. Returning veterans will recognize the breathless hop-scotching between familiar vehicle archetypes: tanks, Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs) and small, wildly fast four-wheeled buggies. Jets and helicopters are replaced (and combined, sort of) by vertical takeoff gunships and transports (think Terminator’s Hunter/Killers).
