      Only played for about 10 mins so far and this is coming from a CoD fan. Wasn't a big fan of BF:BC2.
      But so far I enjoy it. I give it a 7-8. After I play some more I may up it. I don't think it will go down though.

      How are the controls? Closer to MW2/BLOPS, or still like BFBC2? If its the former, then ...if its the latter,

      Basically, are they smooth or does it feel there are marshmallows on the end of the thumbsticks?

      What makes this game different (don't count the vehicles) than MW3? Would you say it's better, if so why? is it worse, if so why?

      Q: What are the regular dates for the Open Beta?
      A: September 29th-October 10th, 2011.

      Q: Who is eligible for early access to the Battlefield 3 Open Beta on September 27th?
      A: Customers who have pre-ordered the PC digital download version of Battlefield 3: Limited Edition on Origin, or registered their first-hand copy of Medal of Honor: Limited Edition/Tier 1 Edition, or purchased Medal of Honor Limited Edition from Steam prior to July 26th, 2011.

      Q: How do I join the early access Open Beta?
      A: For Xbox 360, you will receive an email with instructions and your personal early access code. Note your code and follow the instructions.

      For Playstation 3, the early access Open Beta will automatically appear for you in the PlayStation Network Store.

      On PC, you will receive an email with instructions and your personal early access code. Note your code and follow the instructions to redeem the code on Origin.

      Q: I bought Medal of Honor: Limited Edition/Tier 1 Edition on Steam. How do I get early access?
      A: If you purchased Medal of Honor through Steam prior to July 26th, 2011 cut-off, you are eligible for early access to the Battlefield 3 Open Beta.

      To view your key, go to Medal of Honor in your Steam library, and click the "cd key" link. Find the "Battlefield 3 Open Beta early access" key.

      Battlefield 3 is delivered through Electronic Arts' Origin client. (direct download, 47mb: www.origin.com/download )

      Once you have Origin installed, run it and log in with your Origin ID. (This will be the same as your EA account ID used in Medal of Honor.). In the Origin client, click the gear icon in the top menu bar, and then select "redeem product code".

      Q: Is Origin required to play the Open Beta?
      A: Origin is not required to play on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. For PC, Origin will be used to distribute the Open Beta installation and run the game, and is therefore necessary to play.

      Q: Where do I install Origin?
      A: www.origin.com/download

      Q: Where do I go if I have more question?
      A: You can visit our extensive Open Beta FAQ here.

      If you bought MOH LE and registered on the EA site, it enrolled you in the beta program. If you did like you say play the game, you should of recieved an Email from EA with your beta key. It hits PS3/360 for the public on Thursday. So if you didn't recieve your beta invite, you'll get in on the game on the XBOX dashboard on Thursday when it opens to the public.

      For me it's team based. You can't go solo and rack up the kills like you could in MW2/BO. That is why you can spawn in with a squad on there attack point. Also customizable killstreaks ruined the COD franchise IMO. Pure gun skill in BF.

      The reason this game has me at WOW, is the fact that you can use vehicles. That is awesome, even though I thinkk gameplay will get a bit messy, it sure will be a lot of fun.

      based on my limited time in the alpha:
      + gun properties fairly weighted, you won't find an uber weapon
      + physics, guns are not point and shoot when hitting moving targets
      + upgrades, i really like the balance of weapons attachments/unlocks and perks in the BF series
      + larger maps, you can play CQC, sniper, medium range, etc.
      + destructible environments, sniper in a house, blow up the house
      + rewards team play, solo is possible but supporting the team is very beneficial
      -/+ not as "twitch" as MW games
      -/+ pace might seem "slower"
      -/+ different game types than MW, more focus on objectives, less on kill count, kdr, kill-streaks
      - no kill streaks

      Thanks Wilder, very informative.

      I take it you are a bigger fan of the BF series rather than the MW series.

      I played the crap out of mw2, but i find the BF series to be more enjoyable. MW2 ranks you much faster than the bf series has traditionally, which i find to be very addicting but, overall empty and unsatisfying. I don't judge people for playing COD, i think it's a fun game, but my beef with it is the stagnation that success has brought. And the feeling that i've been ripped off for a full priced game with half-priced development and the extremely over-priced map packs.

      if you are having issues joining a server (where it just says "joining") and the loading wheel isn't spinning do the following:

      Close Origin.
      Close web browser

      Update graphics card(s)

      try again, should work now, if not it may be your firewall or your operating system restricting the application (run it as administrator).

      don't forget to post bugs/issues in the forums so full launch can be smooth(ish) sailing for all.

      For me it wasnt so much that battlefield was far superior, its the fact that the people who play it were not so focused on camping a corner and hoping to earn a nuke, but rather working as a team or squad towards a common objective.

      I do enjoy how dynamic battlefield can be, between the different classes and their support roles, to the vehicles, the larger maps and destructible environments.

      I would still play the COD games if it wasnt for all the glitching and camping for kill streaks.

      So my first impressions about BF3. (xbox)
      are the graphics going to be this crappy in the real game? or is the purpose of Beta is to test server stuff. because i was not impressed with the beta really it was just about all the same but with a new map..
      it kinda makes me wish i had a PC!

      On PC I can set graphics to 'Ultra' setting. the beta alone for the two maps was almost a 4gb download, the full game is supposed to be around 20gb. I image for space purposes on the Xbox they only have it set to media settings and are more concerned with playability issues for beta.

      The videos I posted about are at medium settings (PC). I'll record a 'Ultra' settings demo tonight for comparison. i'm sure just as with BF2 and MoH beta/alpha these issues will be resolved and the graphics will look better and have fewer shutters/clitches. Just give it time and make sure to give feedback on the BF beta block

      So what you are saying Boyer is that the graphics on the Xbox will look much better than they do in the beta?? To be honest I've seen some video of the game on the PS3 & Xbox and the graphics really don't look all that hot. I really hope once the game comes out that gets fixed. Besides gameplay I'm sure a lot of people here are very interested in the game because of the graphics that BF has shown us, it's pure eye candy.

    22. 09-28-2011 10:32 AM #497
      Got a few good hours in with the BETA yesterday (xbox) and i think it has potential t be an awesome, addicting game.
      The map transtions are fantastic. the second set of objectives, thetranstion really changes your style of play,then when running ouside for he lat set, the lighting makes it fantastic.
      The maps are HUGE, almost TOO big (for consol size games)
      The mechanics feel decent, there are still a few glitches they need to iron out, i noiced peple falling under the map, also it seems like after running, then jumping to try running again you need to come to a complete stop and start running again.
      I've always perferred BF or CoD so i might be biased, but i think it's looking good.
      Classes are a little odd, but that'll come with time. If they ARE going to include spotting, it needs to be...possible.

    23. 09-28-2011 10:33 AM #498
      looks, plays, and feels like an upgraded BFBC2

      not a bad thing but the beta felt like i have played this before

      then again it was a huge map with only about 6 people running around - spent more time just trying to find the action then actually shooting

      will load it up again tonight and see

      Buy a PC if you're that concerned with "eye candy" -- I'm almost certain that the graphics will be improved in the full version vs what you're seeing in the beta but don't expect it to ever be as good as the PC videos they've been showing. That's just not going to happen.

      To me it felt like a mix of MoH and BFBC2. It's definitely different but still incredibly familiar.
