This is my review of the current stage of the Bad Company 2 Beta. Remember, these are my opinions of the BETA, not of the actual GAME, which I am still very excited about.
Realism - The realism of this game is absolutely amazing. They've greatly improved the realism of bullet damage in this game, meaning that it takes less bullets to kill people. As you may have noticed, the SMG clip was reduced to 20 rounds, which is the real clip size of that weapon, unlike BC1 where SMG's had 60 round clips.
Sniping - The new way of sniping is great in my opinion. I like the fact that you can scope in, shoot, and then stay scoped in until you scope out and then you automatically reload(?) your rifle. Plus, being able to see blood spurt out of your target's head when you hit them is very gratifying.
Destruction 2.0 - The destruction is not as great as I expected it to be, but it is still cool to be able to level buildings.
Sites - Unlike Bad Company 1 and 1943, you now have the ability to use the sites on SMG's.
Graphics - Well of course graphics will be less than perfect in the first phase of the beta. I'm not criticizing it, I'm just mentioning it.
Squad Play - One of the most irritating things of the beta is the fact that we are currently unable to squad up with friends. This is a major flaw because we need this feature to be able to play as a clan.
Connectivity - Definitely the most irritating thing for me, is the fact that I have not received a single change in my stats. This is because even when I finish a match and it shows the little cut-scene at the end, it still goes back to the main page saying I lost connection. And since the beta does not have in-game saving, my stats do not get altered at all. -_-
It is the morning and I'm a bit tired, so I can't remember all the good/bad things from the beta. Please feel free to post more good/bad things that I have missed.
