Played it for about an hour an a half. I really, REALLY hate the last M-Com area. (Operation Metro) The defending side is completely open. The adjacent area, which is separated by a street, has two large buildings with multiple floors and windows and the high ground.

Every single time we defended we were peppered with rockets and sniper fire, which was going into our spawn. I'm sure there is a strategy but damn.

Graphics were pretty nice, some clips here and there but it's a beta, I expect it.

I love the vaulting over fences, really makes it seem like your character has weight.

The overall level is pretty cool. Going prone takes getting used to. Still has the same problem from BC 1 and 2 where people still think K/D is worth everything. It got REAL annoying one game when the entire team was laying prone in bushes.

The retooled classes are for the better. No complaints there. Little things here and there I love, like how you can't blow the M-Com, or when you're disarming it can't actually blow unless you are killed trying.

Need more time with it.

That's how it should be. I hate the whole, "both sides have to be equal!" concept, as it is wholly unrealistic.

Graphics are not too bad, looks slightly sluggish control wise but that's more down to the frame rate.

Possibly also the connection they were playing on. I noticed a little lag here and there, but barely noticable.

Wait... the smoke launcher can be used for purposes other than killing people? That's what I always used it for anyway... :p

Yeah, i'm not judging until I play the retail version anyway.

Also, the smoke grenade is the best weapon to humiliate (or get kills) with :p

ahahah
One I can remember is last stage - B MCOM in White Pass, one of the hardest ones to activate if defending team know what to do, whithout smokes you can't reach it..

Prime example of a terrible sniper, no guts no glory.
Going prone after a bad hit, gets up and pops his head around the same corner which gives the advance to his target who is now ready and aimed to scope his direction

I agree. But when the attackers can spawn kill without much effort it gets annoying. I've never been killed by more rockets in a game before. Right when I spawn, dead. It wouldn't be such a problem if I could at least spawn to do something.

When did you play it? At an event or something?

At home. I work at GameStop. My store had five beta codes given to the employees. So I got to jump in last night.

The guy who made this video is AWFUL! He sits there on defense not disarming MCOMs right next to him, doesn't spot enemies he sees as Recon, etc. Just terrible. The exact kind of person I can't stand to have on my team.

Sorry, rant over. It had to be said...

Very goofy physics at some points. 30:08 and 31:11 stand out...

Knifing looks terrible at 32:50. What happened to the stab from BF:BC2? I don't want that lame ass Call of Duty instant slashing crap.

Destruction looks nice at 34:38

I love that the attackers don't instantly lose when they hit 0 tickets. I looks like that just means no more respawns and the guys left in play still get to fight to win the objective. I can't count how many times my team armed the objective and had it locked down, only to lose because someone no where near the objective died and spent the last ticekt. AWESOME change.

Just by watching some of the footage, let me first say that the visuals on the 360 look way fucking better than I expected. I am blown away with what DICE have achieved here in the visual department.

Can't wait to play the shit out of this come Thursday. :uzi:

I don't think the graphics are that special, they are good for how big the levels are and compared to the older ones but don't match to COD. Definitely will be my favorite game tho, just as any Battlefield is :)

Well the console hardware isn't anything special so they are still pretty good but that does come at the frame rate compromise.
