Its kindof like BFV..

BFV IMHO was in some ways a step back from bf42. Almost like they didn't
learn from what BF42 taught them..

Hopefully BF2 isn't the same case..

i think the strong feelings have to do with extreme potential 
dissappointment, because bf42 rocked and we would all like to see the 
successor game rock, too, because we (or i at least) would love to play the 
game it could be.
