How is the beta?

Would anyone mind giving a short summary of the beta? I'm so sick of the call of duty franchise and I'm looking for something to play when Gears gets stale.

Look elsewhere, it's terribad. Trust me. Short summary: Everyone proned in a bush, lag, bugs, glitches...

It has some bugs/glitches but what can you expect from a beta?

To me, I think it's fun to play. You get a chance to feel where BF3 is heading towards when it's released. There are some sweet animations like vaulting over barriers. Some destruction (limited in the beta so it prevents some bugs like going under the terrain, but it's fixed now in the final version). The sound is amazing but you have to set it on wartapes to get the most of it. The guns are improved, it takes a few bullets to kill someone but that can easily be changed. If you are spraying at someone and there's no hit marker, it's not the game, it's you. It takes in account of accuracy. When you spray, you'll have massive recoil and your bullets will be over the place. Burst fire and you should be able to hit them.

I always like the destruction of the map in the battlefield series. Is the gameplay more like CoD with just run in and spray fire everywhere, or is it more tactical base? alost is there a cover system?

I have to say i'm absolutely loving it! Yes there are some glitches and every now and then the colour or sound goes (colour is an easy fix by bringing up the menu then leaving the menu). It plays really well and teamwork really pays off. Ive been out of the Battlefield games since BF2 as i didnt ever get on with Bad Company so i didnt bother buying BC2 - i can safely say im in love with it again and i'll be putting many hours in (it does help having a good choice of optics and general setup)

COD is boring now, its hardly changed in 2 years! Yes you can still get bush wookies in this game but it doesnt pay off unless they're doing a good job guarding an objective. Its sneaky, fast paced with close up and long range battles and thats just without vehicles.

  1. You must be new to battlefield. Learn to flank. There has always been a lot of snipers and people who like to sit back in battlefield. I wonder what they're doing? Hmmm... Perhaps defending the objective? Why should you move from a defensive position if you're stopping people left and right, especially the same person like you?
  2. It's a beta, an EA beta at that. What did you expect?

Yes it has great potential and it it deff needs ALOT of work to be ready for the official release, can deff. scratch an itch if your tired of COD... I willl however hold off on the pre order and will rent it first so I know the probs have been handled correctly... I am NOT like most going to bash the game as I know it is in BETA! I expected issues and they are deff present.... I suggest try it before you buy it as I do with most games... Because you just NEVER KNOW! 

I'm going to download it now. What sorts of gamemodes will the game have? is it always objective based or are there deathmatchs as well?

The roughest glitchest buggiest beta ever, thankfully the game is amazing and I'm hooked on playing it.

OP you know homefront the game, well thats what this beta plays like.

Theres 1 map

1 mode

and very inconsistent stuff. oh I can push a metal door but I can't knock over a waste bin or move a flower pot, oh wait I can move a huge cinder block too but not a bin or a flower pot ?

The map.

Boring as heck after a while.
