    I loved it. Played the Operation Metro map with the Rush game mode. To keep it short (I could write about it for ages!) The map we played was more similar to a normal BC2 Rush map but it scaled massively, going from open parks to underground darkness. I just wish i could of played on a 64 player map with jets.

    Playability wise EA have taken the best things from BF2 and BC2 and combined them with some nifty new things to make a truly brilliant game. Knife's have been totally reworked for example as you can both equip it for a one knife kill or use the quick knife button similar to BC2 but that takes two stabs to kill.

    I love how the DICE employee's were there not only to showcase what they had done but to take in our responses and criticisms. Much has changed since i played it and the latest trailer, mostly the UI side of things but overall it all looks very promising and i can't wait for the beta.

    Thanx for the reply !

    I too am looking forward to it but I hope it's not to much like BC2 as I didnt get along with it ! Not sure why but the shooting some one & having to use 2 mags was one big thing for me, also the feel of it felt like CS:S !!!

    May see you on the battlefield so day ?


    PS - What part of Cornwall you from if you dont mind me asking ?

    No worries, i think DICE have cracked the perfect balance between the two. For one you can kill people with a few bullets now and not waste mag's which i also hated in BC2.

    P.S: I live in Torpoint lol, small world.

    P.S 2: My solider name on BF3 will be Merson (As it is on BC2) unless something tragic happens else it will be Merson316. So feel free to add me on either.

    I wonder if this is the same as the alpha build (Which was missing so so much of the game) or if its an updated one where they have added back commo rose, removed the wallhacks etc. Maybe even let people play some better game modes - that Metro map is tiny and not really a good example of what it [should] be capable of, mainly as its a phased one so its really 3 small maps joined together.

    Looking forward to the beta in a few weeks, fingers crossed we get all the updated features then to make it BF3 and not BC3
