There is currently a closed Beta going on for this game (it'll be open in a couple of weeks) and I downloaded it and played it today. Its just fantastic - much like playing Battlefield 2 felt like you were in a full scale modern war at times, playing 2142 feels like your in Aliens or Starship Troopers. The technology and effects are spot on. One of the coolest things for me were Pods. Theres a couple of ground vehicles (and air vehicles) that allow you to right click the mouse and blast up into the air in a pod, which then you can direct to an extent, until it comes crashing back down to the ground, allowing you to burst out unharmed and carry on. Its a great way of launching an attack on a control post or to just make some ground accross the map. Anyone else played it yet? I cannot wait for the full version!
