Remember playing this with my mate, switching to Paratroopers in-flight while Trivium's cover of Master of Puppets was blasting lmao.

The ability to switch units at anytime was a pretty interesting singleplayer mechanic that I thought we would see more of, but it never really caught on. I guess maybe the recent Watch Dogs Legion had something similar, although I didn't play it.

Good observation. Yes, it gave singleplayer a more tactical feel due to the scale. I suppose at that time, with the rise of online multiplayer in the console space, minds were more set on developing new multiplayer experiences.

We had a game on PC with a similar mechanic called "Wargasm". (yes, that was it's actual name, haha). Combined Infantry, Tank, APC & Helicopter combat, controllable from a map like an RTS, but with the ability to jump in directly and fight FPS/TPS style.

It was pretty cool at the time. More "Arcadey" than Battlefield became.
