It has this weird problem where you cannot use the left analog stick to use the menus, and if you do, it takes like 5-10 seconds to respond, so you have to use the d-pad, which is annoying as hell.

Also, the destroyer class is useless. Both of the weapons hardly do any damage, and the perk would be useful if you had any good weapons to go along with it. Without any, the shield is pretty much for teammate's use only. It's really weird, because I maxed out the other characters easily and was usually near the top of the scoreboard, but now that I'm trying to max out this one, I'm always at the bottom. They need to amp up the damage on the weapons for the full game.

Otherwise, great demo. What do you guys think of it?

I haven't pre-ordered the game, not even sure if I'll be getting it at all, but I'm looking forward to playing the demo. I got the first one when it came out, and I liked it but got tired of it pretty quickly.

Really? I thought the multiplayer was amazing in WFC. IMO, it's better in this one, and Escalation will again be amazing.

I wish you could start a game of escalation by yourself to test your skills (just like you can play gears 3 horde mode solo) but based on comic con I think its going to be team based.

LOL, I just tried the destroyer, thinking it can't be as bad as you said, I still came second overall, but I just felt so weak and seemed to be getting tanked by scouts LOL, the only decent thing about it is the rocket launcher which you can use to pick off vehicles, but apart from that it sucks real bad.

Back to the scout it is.

I don't know. I really did like it, I got both the map packs, but it just sort of died overnight for me. I forget if something else came out that I got. In any case I'm really looking forward to playing the demo. I wasn't planning on getting the game but if I'm really impressed I may just...

I'm thinking the explosives are weak in this not just the destroyer class, as the Titan's tank cannon doesn't seem to pack much of a punch either.

Yeah I agreed with small problem of Destroyer class because of explosive shooting at players that take longer for them to dies. Single-player story got no problems with explosive but MP do.

Maybe High Moon developers want less one shot kills unlike COD. Maybe?

Edit: Of course demo is great. MP is nothing new to me.

Its not so much the one shot not killing thats the problem, its that it takes like two full clips to kill a scout, the supposed second weakest (health wise), class.

After playing some the multiplayer and using a little of each class I have some thought's.

-First off, why can you no longer dash sideways in car form? I used to love doing it in WFC and pulling off cool moves. I see no reason for it's removal.

-Is it just me or are the graphics no better then WFC? The environment hardly any detail in it. I keep thinking the floors aren't done loading and that they will sharpen up but they never do.

-The one map they choose to show off in the demo is pretty generic and boring to me. Usually multiplayer demo's show off 1 of the best maps in the game so I'm a little worried about this game's quality of the maps.

-And this is a minor thing but I find it really weird to have the option to play as Bumblebee or optimus prime on the decepticon team. I know it's just so we can have more pieces to customize with but there isn't much selection in the demo, so right now I'm playing as a decpticon that looks like a blue Bumblebee and it looks/feels really odd.

Maybe I was expecting too much from this game since I absolutely loved WFC but I can`t help but feel a little disappointed in the demo. And the no co-op campaign was a real downer as well. I'll be waiting for reviews before I pick up this game now.

My Problems:

They have gotten rid of killstreak rewards.

I seem to be having a problem knowing wether I'm winning or losing, as for me the hud scoreboard isn't clear, who has what points.

The Explosives in MP seem very, very weak.

The class customization seems limited, (load-out, not chassis)

My Likes

Everything else



Overall I'd give it an 8.5, while I give WFC a nine, maybe when they tweak some stuff, mainly the explosives, it'll be as good as WFC MP, but ATM its not quite as good.

Havenīt played the demo yet, so you guys can tell how long it takes to max out the classes?

This was the case with the BF3 demo. They picked the worst map of the game, and the graphics were horrible. Look how well BF3 turned out (IMO). While they're probably not going to add a texture pack on release, they're probably not done tweaking yet.

Also, to whoever asked, it takes 6 levels to max out each of the classes, so technically 24 levels.

Iīm really want to play it, I loved the other game, but never get the achievement regarding maxed out classes, because I suck so much in shooter games, so I may pass this one for this reason.
HAd lots of fun in the single player, though.

i must have missed this bit of info. I know they will expand how much you can level up come August 10th per that streaming headline.

as for the guy who never finished the first game, Play conquest and just cap the flags. Also the first game is set on permanent 5x xp so leveling up will not take as long. a good boosting session setup through TrueAchievements you can get it done quickly.

Ok, thanks for the tips friend.
Too bad I canīt open up a boosting session, Iīve got banned from TA, because a stupid mistake xbox live did with my gamertag. It put identical timestamps on some achievements I got offline... :mad:

Anyway, maybe if I start playing MP right from the start, I might have a chance.:p

Im really glad someone else noticed... its such a small thing but it really bugged me! I even thought my controller was on the way out, so thanks for reassuring me their dude :)

as for your problem with the destroyer i cant really comment, i max levelled all the others in WFC but i really seemed to play best as scientist and scout. So for the demo thats what ive stuck too :p

Trewman
08-03-2012, 12:13 PM
im on the fence about the lack of barrell roll for infiltrator. since yea your right it was sooo cool to rush the other team cloak/dash/melee/dash/transform and get out of there before they know what hit them. So on the other hand i think its easy to see why they got nerfed a bit, especially since theres alot of complaints that their STILL too powerful.

cant agree about the graphics and map though. i tend to move around so fast that i dont really take the time to take in the pallette :p and i really enjoyed the map, seemed like a throwback to the first map in WAR!

Yeah, I usually stick to scientist and infiltrator, too. The titan, even though it has the greatest weapon in the game (you know what I'm talking about), I find myself getting annoyed because of it's limited mobility. Also, flying in a jet makes me feel like a badass.

YES! same here i always feel like a lumbering giant in robot form and too slow to target as vehicle. so when you get to literally fly rings around everyone on the map its the best

Rrrright... today i played the shit out of the demo. i played as every class for extended periods of time and as a WFC vet i have to say FoC is....

just as good!

it keeps the fun elements and gameplay mechanics i loved from the first, the great frantic gunplay that makes me want to pick this up over CoD and BF. i have taken on board criticisms from you guys that i didnt even notice before... namely the countdown noise?! and well for me there are things that need tweaking, the things they have changed, implemented or removed completely havent disturbed the game or made me wish they hadnt. Ive read alot about shield damage needing to be increased and explosive damage increased, destroyer needs to be gimped. but i can say that if your not getting the kills you want with a class then either change class or practice! i played the destroyer for the bulk of the day and my scores were just fine, and tbh i hate playing as destroyer. i much prefer the faster classes. the only time my score dipped was when i played scientist and felt compelled to heal rather than kill, but when you level higher you get the sentry gun which will surely change that anyway...
i can deal with the lack of vehicle skills (rolls,boosts,180s) and certainly without getting splash damaged from a bunny hopping no skill player, for the sake of balancing. ive even began to deal with the stranger customisations, like autobot and decepticons sharing chasis but swapping colors. i realise it didnt matter when i was tearing up the map to find some kills. the only thing i would question is the omission of grenades... i didnt notice untill someone mentioned it before but it is quite strange. oh and not being able to pick up enemy weapons... didnt notice didnt care, too busy killing. killstreaks!!.. didnt need them didnt notice. there are plenty of items around the map that act like perks but now people who can get a 7 kill streak arent getting rewarded with even more powerful weapons! makes sense to me...

overall im very happy with the demo and hope they keep it the way it is... roll on the grimlock dlc :p

The first multiplayer was so epic I can't wait to pick it up day 1... HOWEVER maybe I'm just weird but the fact the demo says it carrys over the experience makes me want to SKIP it.... I want to experience everything including all the special mods locked in demo mode, plus almost a given day one update since they can test the gameplay results of the demo

I loath to hear this....

16-0 on tdm with the titan. Energon harvester is fucking broken lol I dunno how anyone can use it and have trouble doing well. Also, people saying the destroyer sucks need to switch to truck mode and discover how strong those missiles are... Scientist dies in two shots consistently, and titans in 3-4 (If they don't hit you with the energon harvester lol)

- The destroyer takes SKILL.
- Stop whining about Damage and Health.
- The titan has the most health so you can't complain about him.
- My normal Deaths are 1-3 and kills are 15-30
- I don't care how "good" you are with the other classes. The Destroyer is fine
- If you can't use it DON"T
- Now STFU and deal with it!
- The titan is the most overpowered guy in the game to me, so its not very impressive

I've got 10 killstreak with the Destroyer so stop whining just because it has explosive weapons. Dear god I did quote the right person numbskull.

Decepticons get Insecticons: Bombshell, Kickback and Shrapnel (and I don't give a care about their alternate names, Slug is Slag and that's that and I'm a Brit).

And seeing that all parts are usable by both factions, I would hazard a guess the same will be the case of the Dinobots and Insecticons (since we can see Dinosaur and Bug heads in the Demo).

Yea I saw the bug and dino heads but I really want the dino forms to be another vehicle rather than just a robot skin. plus I hope that grimloks rage meter doesn't work like an objective style multiplayer, ala 1 team gets 30 kills then grimlok wreaks havoc for the other ten. that whole idea seemed plausible in my head :p
