The lucky few who got a beta key for Battlefield: Bad Company can connect now to Xbox Live and enter their code to download the game. The others will have to live with our videos. Since I'm as bad as ever with FPS games, actual gameplay footage will have to wait for Snoopers to finally download it too, but here is the Attract Mode of the beta.
What I've played was a lot of fun, it definitely felt like a Battlefield game. Controls were good too, and lag was minimal. The only downside was a very visible tearing of the image.
Update: Gameplay video #1 added.
I'm sure people miss the progression from more recent games tho.. some people are really into that. It's undeniably barebones by comparison. (7 minutes ago)
Have you noticed that you can still be revived waaaay after the "bleed out" period? Still saves a death too.. hah. (12 minutes ago)
It's not just the lack of unlocks.. lack of stuff in general. Battlefield 2 still had more vehicle and weapon variety than BF1. Way more. (13 minutes ago)
On another note, people moaning about unlocks and lack of them need to remember that BF2 shipped with possibly less than BF1 and that is considered the pinnacle of the series... (25 minutes ago)
