I played a bit at a friends house last night. I really came away from the experience a bit conflicted. The TTK is absurd, you often feel powerless to really accomplish objectives because moving anywhere exposes you so much and 1-2 taps from almost any gun (save SMGs) at nearly any range will kill you. It felt like hardcore mode dialed up even further. There are various comments online that this is a netcode problem but I kind of doubt it. There was a tweet from a Dice employee implying that they TTK changes are coming so I suspect they just went too far with beta->retail changes and need to rebalance it.

Some of the maps are frankly terrible and with only 8 in the launch pool it really puts a damper on things. The desert map I played a few times was especially poor and felt like going to the dentist.

On the positive side I like the changes to the vehicles. Most of the guns felt pretty good and had unique characteristics. Managing recoil is a thing. Squads really need to work together to be effective. Graphics were good, framerate was a bit chunky in places but I didn't want to mess with his display settings. Too many damned tracers flying around though, kind of silly.

Anyways I don't think I will pick it up for awhile until they release some more maps and do some tweaking to the lethality, if I wanted CoD I would just buy CoD. They claim they will address this so I will wait and see.
