The only thing I don't like is the torsos are completely stationary, it looks weird. But the large expanse of ship-based action looked great. Unfortunately, IGN is saying that part has been cut as Free Radical implodes and the title is taken away from them: http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/946/946015p1.html

My buddies over on the www.SWBFII.com (http://www.SWBFII.com) forums are gonna be thrilled, we still play BF2 every day on PS2, but there's no release date, it's getting sent to a different publisher, and there will be changes - will it see the light of day? Who knows. But I know this, Lucasfilm either lied to me about BF3's existence, or there's more going on.

Dude Free Radical got eaten up (bought) by Crytek a couple of days ago, so if LucasArts is smart maybe they'll see the fan reaction and take the rights away from Rebellion and give 'em back to Free Radical to make the game what it should be!

The new rumor is that Rebellion wants to take the PORT version and simply upscale it to PS3 and Xbox360!!! WTF??? If Lucasfilm was smart, they'd not only give it to Crytek, but take away all licenses from Rebellion - that type of thinking is what ruins franchises. Unfortunately, Crytek's buyout came pretty late, most of the staff is gone, but hopefully they will be able to work out a deal with Lucasarts for the technology and further development.

Dude that sucks! I never really liked Renegade Squadron for the PSP (by Rebellion) The customization was a great idea, but there is only so much you can do on a handheld, so it was all lost in the small screen! I can only hope LucasArts gets their heads outta their butts and hands it over to Crytek!

Agreed, but I get the feeling Lucasarts doesn't want to change horses mid-stream again, and Crytek has very few projects under their belt. But I'd rather see them get the shot than watch Rebellion ruin this franchise.
