I'm not going to squal about all the horrible physics changes because I haven't tried any of the betas... this was my first crack at it.
It looks nice... very decent gfx effects. The gameplay was smooth.
My first 10mins of playing involved me getting disconnected from the master server twice... EXTREMELY ANNOYING.
Afterwards I was able to play a couple of matches.
I consider myself to be a good FPS player.. but more in the quake realm. These massive battefield games really confuse me at first. So as soon as I enter the game.. my first instinct is to run around aimlessly, and camp.
At one point I spawned near a nice looking aircraft, ready for me to pilot.. Excitedly I double tapped my forward key to run over to it. I died.
Yep.. I ran into the unmanned... motionless vehicle and killed myself. GENIUS! is this some kind of joke?
Ok... so now that I learned my lesson, I decided to attempt to fly the beast (by first walking over to it slowly... very.. slowly..).
Aah! I'm in the pilot seat... but within moments of attempting to accel forward, I begin rubbing the aircraft against the edge of the mothership thing.. and explode killing myself.
ok... 15 mins left before I have to cab it to work (yep.. missed the bus now).
I spawn again... Doh! game over. And I all I learned to do was kill myself in elaborate ways.
Ok.. 10mins left.. new game. I decide to man the gunner of that same vehicle and let someone else pilot.
I start shooting wildly at everything I see. Very entertaining! all the pretty flashing of the nozzle... the most fun I've had since 40mins ago! waiit.. a sec.... omg.. I think I actually killed someone, me look in the upper corner.. yep I killed a guy! I can now jump in a cab and head to work
So are ALL the vehicles available in the demo? All I hear about is people whining about unlockable weapons missing... but all the vehicles there? I spotted tank, jeep, mechwarrior (shut-up.. I'm calling it a mechwarrior), and those air vehcles that transport people, what about the fighter planes? WHERE ARE THE FIGHTER PLANES!?.This comment was edited on Oct 6, 16:13.
