Pre-ordered the deluxe version, been hurting the beta as much as I can between work and family commitments. It needs some polishing before release but all in all, I am extremely happy with it and cannot wait for the game to be opened up to the wider community. The level design, atmosphere, sound ambience and unique gameplay that this game provides is an experience that I have not had for a long time. My hat goes off to Tripwire for a job well done.

new here. I have certainly pre-ordered and been playing the BETA. Very enjoyable.

I reckon that a tonne of good ideas made it in and that a lot are revolutionary.

the cover system
the fatigue system
the suppression system
the MG deployment system - I often have great success running from prone and having the game drop me straight back into prone setup again as soon as i stop running
the re-enforcement system
the tank interior system\crawl about and cupola look
the gun sight system - adjustable sights in an FPS - when does that ever happen?
The breathing and aim system
The squad system that only allows correct squad weapon ratios

What it does not have:
dolphin diving
a lot of juvinile players wanting a quick fix
hundreds of snipers
People running around on speed never running out of juice
lone heroes - they die quickly with this game and the way it plays

And a few other things:

Oh and a few other things not in ordinary shooters:
Pressing T to reveal the Hud with all of its information on your health is a stroke of genius. It keeps things real while only turning itself on at critical moments like when you are wounded. You can bandage yourself if the wound is minor and then continue. Most of the time the wound is not minor!!

Damage models for men and tanks! My tank has been taken out in many different ways. My engine disabled, my main gun damaged. Being able to face your tank the least damaged side for an approaching enemy.

The squad leader orders system is a little more like what you see in company of heroes where you tell men to take position at a certain point.

the support bar to ask for ammo and assistance, arty etc

Well I've already bought ir it so will play but if the beta is anything to go by I won't be playing MP. Felt like I'd stepped back in time everytime I loaded up the Beta. Not that graphics often make a game for me these are well behind the times.

I like to think I'm not a graphics whore *caresses dual GTX570's* but after playing the beta and playing a few single player missions, the graphics to me are completely adequate to portray a gritty environment and I find myself immersed in them.

Improving the graphics wouldn't really affect gameplay enough for me to demand it. For a sub $40 title, I'm happy with the purchase (even though it'll probably be shelved for BF3 when that comes out...)
