First it makes me install Origin. :Puke:

Then it uses a web server browser that launches the game in a little tab. :Puke:

And I've heard you can only change settings while in game and alive. I wasn't patient enough for the loading to get past 'connecting' so haven't got into a server yet.

didnt need to update gfx driver runs fine.

The web browser thing I dont find too bad, just a few nit picks about squads and key bindings but being a beta not too stressed.

Already had a triple kill with 1 clip of the glock pistol :D All headshots.

The beta lacks a lot of features that the full game promises which is to be expected.
They say the graphics you get on high in the beta are only equivalent to medium on the full version, in my view the full graphics on the beta are equal to or slightly greater than that of the latest crisis game.
The gameplay is quite similar to that of previous title Battlefield bad company 2 on the one map you are aloud in the beta with limited flanking routes, but still enough to get past the defense with a bit of smart team work. The gameplay is broken up with you're ability to do anything other than look whilst jumping over fence's or knifing someone from behind. Which brings more realism to the game.

In conclusion, I think I would enjoy this game greatly once I can shoot the lights in the subway and everything go pitch black, until then it's like playing a suped up version of Bad Company 2. _b

Just wait till the game I can guarantee it will be good :D some aspects piss me off though like the flashlight outside still blinds enough you cant even see them.
But overall the game feels smooth even when on 30-40 fps, few memory leaks? seems most games released lately have some. Also there needs whatever bug it is fixed for chest damage multiplier, kill too quick in chest for BF. Already have two 3 mans with one clip of pistol lol.

I'm not sure if it's just me or not, but every time i go to launch the beta I get an error on the web page saying there is and error with the page itself?

Anyone else having this issue or is it just the web page on the day having issues?
