    Yeah, honestly, I was less than enthused. But I'm keeping my preorder, because I trust it will be so much better in the real full version.

    Me too, exactly how I feel; I'm still totally up for Battlefield 3 all the way. There were a number of things in the beta that I disliked; one of them being the glitches, like you fall off the Metro map from under it, another being all the godforsaken campers; there are more campers in the beta than there are in CoD (which I didn't expect for a war simulator, like BF3), it takes too long to kill someone because the map is too big, and what I liked least is the amount of time I have to wait before I respawn; I don't know if it's just me, but it turns me off all the time.

    Obviously, the beta alone lacks environment destructibility, and vehicles, but still even while those two aspects of the game will be met in the final product; a lot of work needs to be done to improve every thing else. I can't stand waiting over ten seconds before I respawn. The gameplay is also quite slow paced, so that doesn't help against all the campers, and just getting killed every fifteen seconds on some occasions, and then have to wait another ten seconds to respawn is bollocks. You have to be able to charge into combat in no time flat (as in CoD Team deathmatches); but then again, we were playing on Rush in the beta. Above all, it's a beta; and recently I've heard the metro was actually a pre-alpha and the true beta was the caspian border gameplay, which I presume PC gamers got to play.

    Actually, yeah, from what I've read, Metro is not anything at all like the final version.
    90% of all major glitches are resolved is what they say too. I'd have to agree with the whole pre-alpha thing.
    I played the alpha, it looked and felt better than this beta. Except for the wonky squad controls and spotting selection.
    Other than that, it was better.

    I agree. I'm not sure what this beta was accomplishing because the Alpha had less issues. It is very, very stripped down in terms of features [no vehicles, no squad controls, no joining as squad/friends] and if the fixes to the glitchyness are already in, then what are they testing? I believe the "open" beta was a mistake and this should have been kept in house for invitees and MoH purchasers only [the reason they're having this in the first place] because I think people are expecting a demo. They're playing this beta, less than a month away from release and it's nearly an unplayable mess. I was fortunate enough to get in some Caspian Border gameplay on PC and it is truly fantastic though, so I'm not worried about the final product.

    This was indeed a bad move on their part-- looking only at the Beta forums where I'm logging my bugs, the main outcry of the "capslock crowd" is that, "this demo sucks ass." Try explaining the concepts of a beta test to them... Hahah yeah right.
    To be frank, right now, it feels like a more-deadly CoD with longer respawns and some objectives thrown in. I mean hell, I just played a match where my team was abominable (mostly the sixth graders who pick up shooter games, I was trying it out on the Xbox); since the attackers were focusing only on kills, though, we pulled through to a victory unbelievably easily. The top three players were all on their team, but since they just loved camping our squad spawns and shooting, they got their asses handed to them.

    It's just all backwards and frustrating right now. And I'm not getting the point. Was it supposed to attract the CoD crowd? Because it was broken, and the CoD crowd doesn't understand the meaning of the word "beta test," since Activision runs their shit in-house. Was it supposed to impress BF fans? Because their were no vehicles, the servers were down half the time, and the graphics were on "Lowest." Was it supposed to attract the casual game players? Because it's got a hugely difficult learning curve for them...

    I just don't get it, but I'm hoping the full game will be the awesomeness that was promised in all of those sexy trailers.

    You're absolutely correct; the final product is going to be the REAL good fps we've all been waiting for, the true fps that'll revolutionise how a skillful game is played. This is the last straw, how ever; I quit playing CoD because its just not the kind of fps I could convince myself to play. The "pre alpha" BF3 alone already has beaten CoD, but not by all that much. If by any chance the final product doesn't measure up to our expectation as the REAL good fps, I'm going to quit playing video games, and say fuck all to whatever BS they give. If you can't give us anything right, you may as well sign your death warrant.

    lol battlefield 3 lost over 50,000 pre orders because of the beta the game seems over hyped IMO.

    Well, I basically heard there are over 12 million players across the world actively playing the beta alone TIL THIS DAY. That's just the beta, mate. That's certainly a good sign in terms of how DICE will profit when the final product comes out.
