You're actually buying the full game, Alpha is just the name of the package.

Actually, what he's saying is that the name is deceiving and it is.

This game doesn't release to the retail public until August/September ~ You're actually buying the game WITH Alpha/Beta access but, make no mistake, this is an Alpha/Beta at the moment.

I'm at work but would be very glad if anyone posts their first impressions. Thinking of buying this so I can start playing when I get home.

Just had a quick run through one of the infantry showcase missions, graphics are great, everything maxed out it ran at 20-30FPS, no more than that. Controls are still a bit clunky, but way, way better than Arma II.

That's because this is an "Alpha test".
