The current Beta is pretty close to release spec imho, can't see much changing between now & release.

And in case you forgot...

Bad Company 2 PC would kick off "very early" in 2010, developer EA DICE has announced the beta will run January 28 through February 25, 2010 along with several other details.

It was released to retail NA March 2, 2010.

They didn't fix anything from the beta to the retail. I remember this well because I was disappointed with having same bugs when I bought it.
Man, does anyone read what I say anymore?

My point was that bitching about a beta is like bitching about your meal before it's cooked.
I remember the server browser was broken, the guns were unbalanced, but I could play the game and it ran well. I bought it release day.

Right, minus the glaring bugs like falling through floors. I seriously doubt they will release the game with that.

There is voice chat. In the com center start a party and invite your friends. Now you have voice chat.

They look fine, better than Crysis 2 looked on release. Textures look sharp and good quality and so does the foliage.
