the game is so badly optimized it lags even in the trailer. the game's huge but still, not sure if that's normal.
@Folkathen Can't say anything about Halo, but I can about PlanetSide. Some games try to create ambiance: you may hear gunshots in the distance but there is nobody there. You may see jets in the distance that are not really there. In PlanetSide there are really there.
Because PlanetSide has 2000 players on the same map. There are so many players, on the one hand you are not important, You are simple soldier. One of many. Sometimes there is a meat grinder going on and whole Halo maps worth of players die in seconds. PlanetSide is the closest you can get if you want to be a insignificant soldier in a large scale war fighting for your Empire. But sometimes you are a hero. Saving a burning tank by repairing it. Bringing the only spawn truck at the current base. Escorting a damaged troop transport. In PlanetSide victory for the Empire comes first. B.t.w. PlanetSide is free.
@Folkathen Two different kind of mulitplayer-shooter games. Planetside 2 is best compared with MAG. But honestly, PS 2 is probably the first one to actually achieve what games like MAG and Planetside 1 were striving for: legitimate online warfare.
@N4o7A It's free. I guess your computer sucks?
@ICE_PREDATOR Maybe you should get upset with your system, not the game. It's superbly optimized in my opinion. With the sheer amount of shit going on and off screen in this game, I'm amazed it's not worse. Runs perfectly for me.
@ICE_PREDATOR occasional lag, but maybe try lower your settings bro. my shit runs well.
