I might check it out. I was just going to wait for reviews to come in since I've been burned by Ubi lately, but I didn't realize this was an open beta.

The gameplay video is intriguing, though that stiff camera work belies thumbstick/console controls. I suppose that is only an issue with the console versions, of course. 

Anyhow, I'm not intrigued enough to bother installing UPlay until some reviews convince me.



Shopkeeper:  Take this object, but beware it comes with a terrible curse, it is from Ubisoft!

Homer: Ooh, that's bad.

Shopkeeper: But it comes with tactical COOP gameplay!

Homer: That's good.

Shopkeeper: The gameplay is also cursed.

Homer: That's bad.

Shopkeeper: But you get your choice of toppings.

Homer: That's good!

Shopkeeper: The toppings contain potassium benzoate.

Tried the beta for a little while, did the story missions that are available. I think this one's a pass for me. I was hoping for something a little more realistic and survival-y. It pretty much feels like a Watch Dogs MMO without the hacking, stealth, or vehicles, which doesn't leave much. The gun play is decent but gets very repetitive. I think I'd rather go back and play Defiance, which actually has vehicles, similar cover based shooting, and somewhat more interesting weapons and missions. Also, it's free.

What I read about that game was "there's nothing quite like being sold a tactical shooter, only to empty a full magazine into an enemy's head and watch them shrug it off."

It's a loot-based shooter, which means that guns have stats, which means that they can't let you do one-hit kills with level-appropriate weapons against level-appropriate enemies or the stats are meaningless. Think Warfreem, not ArmA. I would probably be OK with it if the rest of the game had more to offer.

Also, it doesn't take a full magazine if you can put rounds on target.
