i posted this in another forum as well. not sure why but this game has a more "arcady" feel to it i think, kindda like cod4 or something.
It's definitely addicting but matches are HELL when the team doesn't push forward, like in BC2.

Yeah, the guns feel way off. It's like black ops and pee shooters. But it's alpha, so I'm not judging.

I think you just go down faster than BC2 normal mode. Also, there isn't much indication when you get shot (BC2 makes it obvious with the red vignette), so I've caught myself running around with <50% health when I thought I was full.

yea you go down WAAAY faster, i am really enjoying the huge recoil though, it's a nice challenge. if you just hold down the button, you aren't gonna hit the broad side of a barn. i really want to change the prone button. it literally takes me 1 second to press prone

I've been really enjoying the Alpha! Performance has been fairly solid too. Running 1920x1080 HIGH I get between 40-80 fps - typically hovering around 50 fps.

2600K going to waste here then by looks of it.

It plays full screen, you just need to tick the option in the graphics settings.

Right, but isn't it running through a browser window? I'm not in the alpha, my buddy is and told me about that.

I think just the server browser is running through the browser window.

It looks pretty good and I'm getting average 100 fps on full detail at 1920x1080.
Gameplay is not bad at all.
For some reason I was only getting around 35 fps at first after updating drivers to 280.19 and rebooting but after shutting computer off while I went to work the reboot is giving me the aforementioned framerate.
