So for the people who have played it what do you think so far, in terms on quality, gameplay and if its a sequal to BF2?

It’s not possible to have an opinion at this stage. Publically anyway.

Anything critical will be replied with “It’s just a BETA!” Being overly positive would also be just over compensating for the nagging feeling that it isn’t as good as expected.

From the videos, the BETA is a very different beast then what the intended final product will be. It’s a good thing too because the BETA is SHIT! It’s SHIT, it’s boring and it’s so limited. For me, that’s good news. The final product should provide a different experience that produces alot more in the way of gameplay. At the mo, it’s just MW2 but lower frame rates.

nothing about is all that satisfying, sure it looks pretty. but movement feels really awkward. getting unlocks and managing weapons is confusing.

and it often feels like its made for console.

one thing I have felt as though is a turn in the right direction is the fact that with less accurate weapons, awkward/slow/ more realistic movement (not firing while standing up from prone) the game feels like its more about thinking ahead as a team, rather than individual reflexes.

Its not the quickest hands, its the sharpest minds.

Seems to have a totally different flow to anything I’ve played. A lot slower. I reckon it feels awkward cause of the transistion time between stance. Jumping over shit seems to work ok and isn’t sticky. It sucks when my bipod deploys on top of a ledge when crouching behind cover. But prob just something to get used to.

I reckon we are getting 27% of the end product experience with all the stuff that’s turned off and no vehicles. Bring on sharqi and karkand in dx11 :-)

Key binding issue. Come on. How hard can It be?!?!?!

Like L-jae mentioned, “it feels like its for console” which is what myself and a lot of other people reckon even though they stated it to be PC platform. I reckon fuck console and just make it for PC, it would be so much easier and enjoyable! It also doesn’t feel like the original battlefield games like BF2, 2142 and even BC2 which was shit. It almost feels like cod in the terms of running, proning, movement etc. But its only the BETA!

I have to say, the BETA grew on me very quickly. Once i re-adjusted back to the BF format, it became much more enjoyable. Still very buggy of course, but i don’t think it’s in EA/dice’s interests to drop the ball on this one.

As far as a sequel goes… no way. The whole game itself feels REAL different to BF2. I think it’s WAY more involving than I remember BF2. Not just the desire to play it, but the NEEEEED to play it… and get good! So much more complex as well.

p.s. I’m a nxtGen fanboy too… the video and especially the audio on BF3 are out of fuc&ing control!!
