Review: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (Big Download)

Mar 20th 2010 4:54PM Hmm, well the evidence is there is you care to look. Take the leaderboards for example: the #1 spot has 99% accuracy.
Im not usually a paranoid guy, holding firmly that too often too many people scream hacker when its just luck of the draw, but ive seen it.

You're lucky to have admins on the servers you play. Can you recommend any for the people reading this review?

Review: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (Big Download)

Mar 18th 2010 3:52PM You forgot to mention the rampant cheating. Punkbuster is not really doing its job.

Sep 30th 2009 3:03PM IS anyone having trouble with the msmpeng.exe service? I decided to give this a try, but the a formentioned service is hovering around 80-99% usage intermittently.

The problem happens on a copy on Vista business and on an install of Vista ultimate. I guess this is how MS plans on stopping viruses on your ocmputer- you cant use it!

seriously, the entire system comes to a halt to wait for this exe do finish doing whatever its doing. sometimes its 5 minutes, sometimes if 5 hours. Ridiculous.

Apr 17th 2009 11:54PM Richard, that resolution has been released! rejoice!

seriously, a resolution of 1024 x 600 is just awful for todays modern applications, I would probably just increase all these netbooks to at least 1280 x XXXX.
