So I've been messing around with the Beta today (it was extended one day, and there is no NDA). It's fun. Nothing spectacular, but fun. Simple controls, the medium ranged combat is intense, the short ranged combat ends too quickly for my tastes, and the long range sniping is delicious. Except for intermittent disconnects, bug free so far. I just wish the vertical thrust output on the medium and light chassis had more power.
It's entertaining, so it can't hurt to play. Especially since it is gonna be free to play.
Also, that HAWKEN controller is COMPLETELY unnecessary. The majority of your control use is SHIFT, SPACE, WSAD, LMB, RMB, MMB. And, really, that's about it.
My biggest gripe with it, really, is that their art team is horrible. I get the 'cobbled together' look is their goal, but, like... one literally looks like an old boxy TV on legs. Where's the sloped armor? It's both aesthetically and defensively better looking then a blood thirsty TeeVo. >_<
Took some footage from what I think was my third game ever. Will be uploading it soon.
