So I tried the "beta" for Battlefield 3 last night. Jesus fuck what a mess.
First of all, the menu systems make no fucking sense. Ominous bells at that. Once you're in a game, there's no way to exit back to the main menu. You go back to the multiplayer screen, but no way to the MAIN screen where you pick multiplayer, or campaign.
Anyhow.. once you're in the game, bleh. For a beta (one that gets released in 4 weeks) this thing has a shit ton of problems. I fell through the map at least 10 times to my death, players would randomly appear and disappear, the hit counter was TERRIBLE.. i unloaded a full clip at someone and nothing. Players were floating around either on top of the ground, or sinking into the ground (the clipping of death)..
The map we played was the only one available, and the choke points were numerous and stupid. You'd spawn and 5 seconds later be dead without having fired a shot. Attempting to tell who was friend from foe was doubly annoying because your teammates were supposed to have little blue arrows over their heads.. that didn't seem to happen all the time, so you'd open up on your teammate here and there, with him lookin at you like you're an idiot.
ALso, my PS3 froze once in the middle of a game.. dunno what that's about.
In all, a shit experience and with only 4 weeks to go this game NOW is pretty much what you'll see and the end of october with a few minor tweaks.
It has SERIOUS flaws. Like.. almost unplayable flaws.
