For anyone in the demo please post your thoughts and experiences with it here. So far I’m of the mindset that this game is essentially BC2. I thought the CoD series was silly for more or less putting out the same game year after year, but BF3 really is BC2. I really can’t tell the difference. In all seriousness, I guarantee people will be getting BC2 and BF3 gameplay footage confused on youtube.
My biggest issues with the game thus far is probably with the engine (same issue I had with BC2). It’s hard to put my finger on it, but the game just feels slow, clunky, and laggy. I have a hard time shooting over a rock but other times I’m dying via getting shot through a 4 foot concrete pillar. I might think I dodged a grenade by laying behind a slab of concrete but no, I’m still dead. I can open up on a guy and hit him with 20 rounds and he keeps running but other times I kill someone with a single burst. Oh, I should probably mention BF3 isn’t showing ping times in game (probably due to the same fucked up lag issues that BC2 had where everyone ran around with 150-300 pings in game).
I’m a bit shocked but overall absurdly disappointed. I was really hoping this was going to be a revolutionary step forward in the genre, and instead we get a big shiny turd. What a letdown.
