TLDR: PS2 is basically PS1 with new graphics... except not as good as PS1. Wow great job SOE.
What I don't get is why PS2 is so similar to PS1? And not only is it insanely similar, PS2 actually removes some of the cool features of PS1 like being able to loot enemy packs. Now if you're on a streak and you run out of ammo you just suicide to get more because there's no way to get more ammo short of hacking a console? That makes no sense. And why did they take away the inventory? I had a great time managing my inventory. I could build a load out that was completely different that the guy next to me. Let's take that out. It's too confusing. lol Too confusing?? WTF? Well yeah nether the chimps in our lab couldn't figure it out, so we removed it.
They should have added more things to do in Planetside 2. I was kind of expecting it. I mean it's a sequel right? It needs to BUILD on the first version. Like instead of static bases all over that nobody gives a damn about, maybe allow us to get resources with machines or something and build our own bases. Or at least allow outfits to 'own' a base and get some kind of profits from holding it. Or maybe make weapons in the game not infinite, so we need bases to manufacture them. Basically take PS1 to the next level. Make it a real sandbox. In it's current state it's just a giant Battlefield 3.
Or even allowing us to have some kind of money system, so people don't just suicide rush out there. And I'm not talking about the lame system they have now where you get some kind of resources for your side holding specific parts of the map. Nobody gives a crap about that, and secondly it's not personalized enough. If you had some kind of personal money system, you could have people scavenging ammo and guns from the enemies they kill. Maybe you could then sell them to some guy who has a gun exchange shop set up. Also you could maybe go gather some resources to make more cash, which would then at least give you something to fight over that actually matters.
PS2 is a real dissapointment. Since they made the same game basically, why didn't they just pull out BFRs and give PS1 some new graphics? It would actually be a better game since we'd have inventory back and the ability to loot bodies.
Edit: Forgot to mention, but hope it's obvious, I played PS1 for about a year when it launched. Got to BR 18 or something with 3000 kills. I quit when BFRs came out.
