Ubisoft is probably the most habitual of abusers in terms of downgrades and generally shoddy work.
The above completely ignoring the subjective aspects of the game, like mechanics. I am just looking at the visual fidelity, the technical implementation, etc, etc. Not that many years ago this would be considered an Early Alpha level project, with a long way to go. Not Beta approaching release.
Really getting annoyed by people screaming graphics this game looks really good turned up and I would say name one game in the last 5 years that actually lived up to its announcement trailers, I personally can't name one besides maybe battlefield and call of duty but they push the same crap every year with minor improvements. Finally there is performance anyone that has been in a beta knows better then to expect good performance in a beta it never happens the point of a beta is to find game breaking bugs not to run benchmarks, anyone actually following the ubisoft forums for bug reports and performance issues knows that the beta we played is already a few builds old hence the second beta being done at the end of the month.
As for game technical implementation I would say this game is doing a lot of new things out of the realm of what ubisoft can usually pull off, near field voice, almost seamless party grouping, playable pve/pvp enviroments, if your expecting destructible environments and big visual event's this isn't the game for you its a group loot based rpg that just so happens to use shooter elements as its combat system.
Now saying all this I am personally holding back to purchase this game until final release the biggest concern with this type of game is how much content is there going to be and whats the end game, I do agree with you in one aspect this is ubisoft and there is so much room for screw up with them but so far what I've seen the studio's ubisoft is using to make this game are at least trying this time around.
