It plays like Crysis 2 DLC. Same issues with constant host migration, frame rate and hit detection as well. Roll on PS4/720, this is pushing the current consoles too hard.

CVG - would you rate the MP (albeit as a Beta) as better or worse than Halo 4 / CoD for example ?

Not sure how much that will fix tbh, on my i5 3570k amd gtx 590 (arguably the second most powerful card available currently, although is a dual GPU and initially until sli drivers are sorted by nvidia this can suck) and frame rate is still kinda all over place, even with latest nvidia drivers , and the worst of it seems over. It now seems to hover between 50-60fps with max settings and 2x msaa , but then randomly drops horrendously into 30's briefly, and sometimes on same maps maps with nothing major happening, it can run in 40's.
The lag stinks, with kill cams differing radically to the actual events (I had to shoot someone six times with shotgun from two yards before he died, whilst the kill cam showed him dying immediately).

Not played halo 4, but played reach, and even though I didn't really get into it, I couldn't help, but appreciate, how well it was made. It's a game that really requires you developing skills to get good, not just putting time in to get better weapons etc. There felt a real balance to classes.
This is currently unbalanced, kinda fun, but still nothing special to make it stand out. I'd say black ops 2 is better game, and this has more in common with cod than halo

Technically worse than CoD, but far more ambitious. More tactical, more interesting and plays more vertically as well. The ability to jump and climb makes it superb fun. If only the frame rate could keep up.

@kirankara: I'd be happy with 30fps!!! The PS3 version is dipping into the teens at times, and rapid side to side movement to sight enemies is pointless as everything becomes a vaseline smeared mess! I do love Crysis online, but I love it despite its technical issues.

Crysis 2 Single Player was decent, Multiplayer was good fun but only in classic mode with no armour/Invisibility nonsense. Nice and fast with the guns feeling like a blend of COD and BF3. Was good fun for a while. I'd imagine Crysis 3 will be broadly similar. I've yet to try the Hunter mode myself.
I'm kind of a big deal...
