    Before I continue I just want to share my background of fps I've played. I was part of the Battlefield 3 beta and I've played Battlefield Bad Company 2 & Battlefield 3. Other fps I've played are call of duty 1, UO, 2, 4 & W@W. All of those games I've played on PC only. Also I've played cops & robbers on an Atari 2600
    Also note that this is a beta

    Next my PC specs:
    AMD Phenom X4 9550 @ 2.2ghz
    4 GB DDR2 Ram
    640 GB 7200 rpm hard drive
    PNY nvidia GTS 450 1 GB GDDR5 (334.67 beta drivers)
    Windows 7 home premium sp1 64-bit
    EA's recommend PC specs:
    AMD six-core or intel quad-core
    8 GB ram
    AMD HD 7870 or nvidia gtx 660
    3 GB of video ram
    Windows 8 64-bit

    First I want to say that this game is basically cops & robbers but on a huge 3D map. There is only one map so far (the one from E3). The "new" game mode heist is like rush but instead of blowing up/defending m-con stations you have to either get the loot from the armoured van that crashed and get it to the extraction point if you are the criminal or defend the loot and stop it from getting to the extraction point if you are the police. Also to unlock weapons you need cash that you have collected in game from heists.
    I did manage to play two rounds of heist with a total of 32 players, each round was 10 minutes long and the criminals have about 100 tickets.
    On my PC I'm playing at 1366x768 on high with MSAA off and get around 25-30 frames per second unless there is a lot of stuff going on then I drop to 10-15. I defiantly need more ram though, 4 GB is not going to cut it this time.
    So far the gameplay is good, the controls I have to get use to again. The only thing I want EA to add is a toggle setting for aim down the sight cause it's annoying to hold down LMB. Since I'm more of a close combat type of player and my vehicles skills are not strong, my play style does not fit this game at all. You need to play as a team to win and use the vehicles to your advantage.
    Overall it's a good start but knowing EA they will mess it up some how.

    Once I play a bit more maybe... My skills are so rusty right now I won't be able to do a proper review yet. I was just posting my initial thoughts so far. It also doesn't help that my computer is really showing its age with this game. Most of my parts are 6-7 years old with my video card and power supply at 3-4 years old.

    Take your time. Get some play time on it and get the thoughts down.

    I haven't played battlefield 4 so I have no idea how bad the bugs are. I've only played battlefield 3 + the beta and to be honest I found the beta better than the final release of battlefield 3.

    Yay! I finally got to take the loot to the extraction point and hold of the police
    I had less than 10 health when the round finally ended, longest 1 minute wait of my gaming life.

    I'm playing on my pc, I don't have the extra ram to run other programs since I have to have origin and a web browser running in the background along with the game.

    Ok my review of the beta should be coming soon, and it will have actual in-game screenshots. Just not sure weather to create a new thread for my review or just post it in this thread.

    My review is coming still, it's just been really hot where I am (close to 30C) and my computer doesn't help cause it adds to the heat. So I should have it up by Friday as long as the forecasted temperatures are closer to 20C.

    My review:
    First I want to start with I'm running the game on my PC and these are the specs;
    AMD phenom X4 9550 quad-core @ 2.2ghz
    AMD 780g w/700SB chipset motherboard
    4GB of DDR2 ram
    PNY nvidia GTS 450 w/1GB GDDR5 ram
    640 GB 7200 rpm partitioned hard drive (15/252/348)
    Windows 7 home premium 64-bit SP1
    Also I'm playing at 1366x768 on high with MSAA off and get around 30-40 frames per second unless there is a lot of stuff going on then I drop to 20 especially when the crane falls. I defiantly need more ram though, 4 GB is not going to cut it this time.

    (Crane after it falls)
    This game is basically cops & robbers but on a huge 3D map. There is only one map so far (the one from E3) called high tension.
    Battlefield Hardline Beta-imageuploadedbytapatalk1405083198.322291.jpg
    (Random screen of map)
    The "new" game mode heist is like rush but instead of blowing up/defending m-con stations you have to either get the loot from the armoured van that crashed and get it to the extraction point if you are the criminal or defend the loot and stop it from getting to the extraction point if you are the police.
    Battlefield Hardline Beta-imageuploadedbytapatalk1405083304.466805.jpg
    (Going to the vault in heist)
    In the second game mode called blood money there are 3 stashes of cash that both the criminals and police are after. The police are trying to retrieve the cash and the criminals are trying to steal the money. Each side has a vault that can be broken into also. I didn't play much of blood money but it did feel like conquest when I did play it.
    Also to unlock weapons you need cash that you have collected in game.
    Battlefield Hardline Beta-imageuploadedbytapatalk1405083356.638447.jpg
    (Load out screen on battlelog site)
    I did manage to play several rounds of heist with a total of 32 players, each round was 10-15 minutes long and the criminals have about 100 tickets.
    So far the gameplay is good, the controls I have to get use to again but a beta update let me change some of them so I was good.
    Since I'm more of a close combat type of player and my vehicles skills are not strong, my play style does not fit this game at all. You need to play as a team to win and use the vehicles to your advantage.
    Overall it's a fun concept to play but I wouldn't pay $60 for it cause it feels more like a DLC than anything but knowing EA they will mess it up some how.

    Just because a game looks pretty doesn't mean it's good. I played the battlefield 3 beta, it looked really good then at launch it had some bugs from the beta and then some more.
