The beta is in full swing and if we take a step back and assess, what do we see?
Do we think this test is having an overwhelmingly positive impact on the already insane hype? Are people even more excited? Have expectations actually grown in the past few days?
Or rather, is it having the opposite effect? Are some testers simply saying it's nothing more than a simple blend of Halo and Borderlands ? Don't forget that anticipation for this game was through the roof heading into the beta, so expectations were already sky-high. Thus far, most gamers seem quite please with what they've seen, but we'll probably have to wait for the full-fledged analyses. The beta is over on July 29; after that, you'll start seeing a flood of feedback.
It's always interesting to see the public's creation to a beta test. Many don't quite understand that it's just that – a test – while others honestly believe they're playing the final version of a game (sad but true). However, those in-the-know are definitely picking this game apart already, and the result is a series of moderately interesting debates concerning the game's current polish level and overall potential.
