I have a few issues with it - lower health, STILL not being able to leave at the post-game menu, and the possibility that every Recon will find a good bush to go prone in (flash will help, but then again there's the flash supressor...). I also don't like the map we've gotten here, but I have faith that there will be several other good or great ones.
Ultimately though, it plays reasonably similar to BC2, which I loved. I guess just the fact that I pre-ordered back in May (after "Fault Line" was released in full) means enjoying the Beta was a given.

Yeah for the PC, which they always specified. What do you expect the Xbox is basically a useless brick with a green light on it.

A lot of people fail to understand that the Xbox has reached it fullest potential and games from now all will nearly all have to be toned down. There will have to be a new console by next christmas; they have no choice the market is moving forward quickly and the xbox is showing nothing but horrible ageing.

I was reading an article (cant remember where or which, sorry) that was saying microsoft is under pressure from developers who are angry that they cannot show the true potential of the game due to the old technology.

Dont get me wrong, the Xbox has had a fantastic run, but its time for her to sit down and let the younger, more attractive model come and takes her place. Like im surprised some games even look as good as they do (Gears/ BF3) on 6 year old software.

To those complaining and comparing BF3 on PC to Xbox 360. The graphics cards that are used to run BF3 on its highest settings (the visuals that DICE has presented in all the PC gameplays) are new, they are using CURRENT day graphics cards. Not ones from 2005. Fuck thats 6 years ago! As opposed to the 4 year gap between the original Xbox (2001) and the Xbox 360 thats a big difference.

So to those complaining about he visuals, man the fuck up and buy a PC then. You are using the wrong platform if you expect to be treated with the smoothes running visuals, the best content and community. Consoles are great and have come a long way; but we are in a world that never stops advancing and the PC will always benefit from its promotion of freedom.

I play a lot of betas so I know they're going to be buggy but this one was pretty bad, especially so close to a release date. Even without the bugs and lag, the game just feels like more of the same.

I might rent it, or buy it when it's cheap.

Looking forward to it, but I have my worries for sure. The beta hasn't done its job but it will suffice.

Plays like Medal of Bad Company 3. Certainly not the sequel to Battlefield 2.

I'm not excited for this at all.

I thought it felt a little bit like CoD unfortunately, with the lower health and such.. but I definitely will not cancel my preorder. I'm just a bit worried that release is in 3 weeks and that beta was quite buggy..

Overall I have faith that it'll turn out great. I didn't preorder MW3 and don't plan on it. I think this and gears3 will keep me happy for a while.

I'm looking forward to it but I'm worried on some of the stupid glitches that are in this game. There's a lot of problems and I don't know how they didn't find these things before.

Ditto this. The addition of prone is going to lead to a shitload of snipers and campers in any map with a bush. Don't take this as a complaint, but seeing as how most of the sniper rifles seem to be a one/two hit kill, this could be a very bad thing for any outdoors map.

I'm slightly worried about all the vehicles and aircraft. I don't really want to be capturing a point only to have jet fighter wipe everything out within 20 feet of me.

But overall my first impressions were great. Probably because my first game I went 34/19.

So then I'm guessing that wanted a "useless brick with a green light on it?" Is that why you have an xbox or is it because you couldn't afford a PS3?

you can still get the snipers, more so with the full game unlocks. (getting a sniper with an EOD bot will be funny!)

i know it's a beta and not part of the final game. im still having fun with it and still cant wait to buy it.

Been trying for over an hour to get into a game and still haven't managed to. Just shows a black screen and says that my connection to EA servers has been lost.

Not impressed, to say the least...

Wow, I am amazed at the poll numbers. That many people will cancel because of the Beta? Wow. It got me more excited for the game! I had $5 on it and since playing the beta, I have fully paid it off. Excited for October 25!

how do you "say" how good the graphics are going to be? they said it would look pretty good compared to pc for what the xbox can do and if you say you fell through a rock or the screen flickered, that is a technical issue not "bad graphics"

Im guessing most of them didn't actually cancel. They just want to sound hardcore or something to say they canceled to buy MW2.2 instead.

Although the beta has it's share of bugs, given it's running on much older code than the final version will have..I still think it's amazing. I'm betting once people get into their first jet fight in the middle of a battle, they will think Modern Whatfare?

My only problem has been the servers being dead and then last night trying to play and getting 'No available game to join' or some shit. So if EA gets their stuff together and their servers run smoothly, I know I will be putting some serious time into this game.

Just not being able to get slashed in the leg and die from it like in every CoD game is enough to make me want to keep playing. At least you have to have a reason to use your knife to get a kill in this instead of panic stabbing and being rewarded for your lack of skill at close quarters combat.

Plus the jets...my god the dogfights in the air look so fun. This coming from someone who has NEVER been a fan of any jet fighting game like Ace Combat and the like. I don't mind having different weapons for the different sides..it makes perfect sense since you don't see russian army's running around with American made weapons. Why would you see it in a game? Plus just gives me a chance to get better at different weapons.

Don't worry about him. He's obviously not the brightest crayon in the box if he can't tell the difference between graphical glitches and overall graphics. /facepalm

I am actually enjoying the BETA, sure there are a few glitches here and there, the other day the sky would flash green every so often and i had some trouble killing one player who appeared to be having an onscreen fit but overall it is an enjoyable experience.

As for the final product, I think DICE have taken on board the comments made by most people and will be looking to make the final game even better, of course as mentioned before, none of that will matter if EA can't sort out the server issues, i was so determined last night to play a game that i actually sat staring at a black screen for six minutes only to have the screen finally appear but unable to move with a message saying, "waiting for more players" despite the fact both sides were full and i could see all the gamertags of my team on screen?????

Long story short, i will still pick this up release day.

Yes exactly people saying they are going to cancel their pre-order. Just a bunch of children begging their parents to buy them MW2.5 I for one am having a blast! It's a beta people! "a quality-control technique in which hardware or software is subjected to trial in the environment for which it was designed, usually after debugging by the manufacturer and immediately prior to marketing."

The company wants to make money and the developers want us to enjoy and recommend their product. I am not worried as I know that one map is not the final product of the game, but a very small part of the grand scheme. Can't wait to tackel the SP then hop online October 25th! Add me

As an extreme fan of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (Rank 50, all achievements, etc.) I can sadly say that this beta was an extreme disappointment. It felt relatively sloppy and played more like Medal of Honor than Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

I was definitely going to get this game, but now, I cancelled my pre-order and am waiting for the reviews to satisfy my purchase. Hopefully they just gave us a bad multiplayer map and will fix the bugs, glitches, and graphic errors in the few weeks they have left.

Haha I have a ps3 too and it's a goddamned black brick with a smaller green light on it. And my computer it's useless too, don't even get me started on my oven and toaster. TRASH, ALL TRASH.
Don't get me wrong, I love my xbox, we get on fine. I just don't expect too much from it. So I'm rarely disappointed.

So you're giving up a free expansion pack to wait for reviews that usually aren't very accurate anyway

To each his own, but I definitely can't agree on that one

Essentially. Not just reviews from critics though; I will also take in mind the reviews from the actual players.

The free DLC is the reason why I'm still pre-ordering BF3. I am certainly less excited for this game now than I was before the beta, but I am still optimistic the final product will be much better than the beta.

It's a beta running from old code. It will be a bit different in the retail copy. Also, you do know that the name "Bad Company" isn't in this title right? This isn't Bad Company 3. It's Battlefield 3.

I think you've got it wrong on the community part. I play PC and Xbox games, and Xbox has a vastly better community due to the universal implementation of headsets.
