    Waited 30+ mins for an 2:22 minute trailer, first 1 minute is useless...
    Then the game looks like a pimped flashgame. Not impressed at the moment.

    What the hell 30 minutes??
    It took like 5 seconds to load for me. :(

    But yeah, its free so it wont be that great, but looks like it could be fun somewhat. Im getting bored with how TF2 has no real guns really and doesnt reward skill, I guess its my background from playing cs. Also, BF2 doesnt work for vista, what the hell.

    Its free, its a ripoff, we are all going to test it to conclude nothing beats tf2.

    It looks like a hell of a lot of fun to me.

    It's free, but reading up on it a bit over at IGN (preview here) it seems the game will take advantage of microtransactions. Now, the players aren't forced to pay for a better experience, but it is a way the game is intended to turn a profit. A rather disheartening statement in the IGN preview is this:
    I'm not a fan of the "if you have money then you get better stuff" type of game. So if this is taken advantage of I can't say I'd be thrilled.

    Regardless, it doesn't look like there will be anything initially that will keep players from jumping right in and going to town. It'll be worth giving it a shot when it comes out. Will it replace TF2? Nah, but it might be a fun diversion.

    The riding on airplane wings, and everything is just so over the top that it does looks fun. But im afraid its gonna be pretty shallow if you dont fork over money in microtransactions.

    Yeah, something I read in an older post was one thing they are thinking about is if you pay money then you will gain levels faster.

    Again, right now I don't think it's anything game breaking. The microtransactions they're talking about seem like they'll allow players to advance a little quicker if they want or get some cool clothing bits. Nothing that puts anyone else at a severe disadvantage. I'll only have a real issue if they start requiring payment in order to obtain special items that will grant specific combat bonuses. That's the type of thing that swings the balance of power toward those who have the cash to spend.

    ahh... there is the snake in the grass. I was already surprised EA was giving it away for free.
