Whats up with the blurry sniper scope? That sucks!

First impressions is that the shooting part of this game is not as fun or as good as CoD 4 or CoD WaW. The movement isnt as smooth either...running around or moving around the map on CoD 4 and CoD WaW feels better/more natural.

I'll give it some more time....but I may cancel my pre-order.
I think moving around in bad company feels more natural...your gun shakes more and it actually feels like your walking around the map, not just floating around it like CoD4. Bad Company 2 is meant to be slower paced and more tactical, not as fast paced as Call of duty.

4.) The graphics are a disappointment, even with all settings maxed out at 1920 x 1200.
5.) It's not playable.

I know it's a Beta, but we can hardly test it if it's not able to be played...

So that's why I'm disappointed.
It's a beta, the point of the beta is for them to get their servers up to the demand. The point of a beta is to see if they can handle the load, and if they can't, they fix it, which they have said they are doing. Have patience, you're a beta tester, not a player. Betas aren't always perfectly playable.

What's wrong with the graphics? Why does everyone care so much about graphics? I'm running the game at 1920x1200 with everything on low and I think it looks pretty good. The game is fun, that's all that counts. and yes, I was able to join a server and play two games before I stopped playing because I had to run to the post office. I didn't use play now, I used the server browser to find a server with low latency for me.

So basically, your gripes (besides the graphics) have to deal with, not the game itself, but the infrastructure behind the closed beta of the game?

See that watermark in the top right corner? Read it.

I played it.

1. Graphics is awesome!
2. Destruction is epic.
3. Some lag(not much)
4. No crashes yet
5. Very fun to play
6. Seems balanced enough

I am the only one who likes the beta?

This is frustrating....

Am I the only one who can't launch the steam beta? It opens to a black screen and crashes to the desktop
post #939 of 4923
Got a couple games in before the servers went bye bye for me.
Game looks promising. Like every game in the history of the internet the servers are taking a beating at launch. This is what Beta is for.

Gameplay is fun, and I'm more then happy to throw DICE my money after that pile of steaming trash that Activision released. Hell, I'd rather stare at the server browser in BC2 than play MW2.

Try running it from the .exe in the C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Steam\\steamapps\\common\\battlefield bad company 2 beta folder.
