Battlefield Bad Company 2 PC Beta Footage

There's a clip on the YouTube showing off about 10 minutes of footage from the Battlefield Bad Company 2 PC Beta in a very smooth clip in spite of using high quality video settings. A variety of gameplay situations are demonstrated along the way, including firefights, using explosives, repairing tanks, reviving teammates, driving vehicles, and more. You can also view the clip below.

There was a lot of spray and pray in that video. It was tedious to watch the guy running after people with his trigger mashed. When he settled down to light people up with a couple shots, I thought they died appropriately.

Yeah the game is a blast to play and considering it's still in beta that's good news. DICE has certainly received a lot of feedback about it taking a whole clip to kill, which is true more if you are moving (as you point out) than if you are still. Also consider that soldiers in this fictional future probably wear body armor.

The destructible environs are great. Also the dynamic voice call outs are a nice innovation because they apply to what is happening. Unlike in BF2 where you had to manually do them (which had some advantages).

DICE is to be congratulated. Gets me pumped about BF3.

All that said, there are a lot of outstanding bugs and requested features and I don't think DICE has time to fix since they need to go gold probably next week, unless they delay the PC launch. Maybe that's a good idea.
