By the way, anyone can download it, not one of those lousy pay to download sites. This looks like a larger file than the "leaked" one from earlier. ----
My review of the game so far:
Basically the same feel as RTCW. As you progress through the game, you can increase your rank as you accomplish things. Engineers can build bridges, built machine gun towers, fences, arm mines and set dyno. Engies can have either a thompson or a rifle with a grenade launcher on it. Sort of like the one on Medal of Honor. This map, the Allies escort a tank to the Axis base where the objective is to blow up a fuel dump. It helps to have a lot of support with you, like Medics since it is a long walk back if you get killed.
The voices are a little funky. One player described the voices as "ghetto as hell". Allies voices sound like Grampa Simpson. (well close to it)
Every server I joined, play was a bit choppy. Ping was about 70 to 150.
Soldiers get their choice of panzer, thompson/mp40, flame thrower, portable heavy machine gun (mg 42?) and a mortor. Mortor is pretty cool but will take some serious practice to hit anything it looks like.
Voice messages are "v" based but totally different from RTCW and you'll have to relearn all the "thank you" etc commands. (or bind them)
That's the short of it.
You forgot to metion how much it rocks,felder :)
Have you noticed if you go into the 2nd wood cabin,you can get free ammo and health off those back racks,to?
According to what I saw on 3dgamers, it looks like it's not the official release, though, just a beta test. Any word on how many maps there will be included in the official release?
6 levels of 3 maps each (in camp mode) or 2 camp modes...3+3=6,we'll have to wait to find out,3dgamers says 6. :)

its an official beta release...crazy huh?:p
Maybe I could enjoy it if there were some good servers. I always get an error (Invalid cdkey (how in the name of f*** is this possible?), low pings only (again, how? I'm using adsl :S), and so on...), and when I don't it lags like ****. :(
I tried making my own server and playing on my own, but that was just plain boring.
Also, does anyone else think the new sounds suck? :/ I don't like the new voice commands and the sound of the MP40, the rest is cool, though...
Wow, so many topics on this...
It's good but to be honest w/ ya @ the moment I prefer RTCW.
The new voices suck, there are more though which is cool.
yeah every time I try to find a server they are either passworded, low pings only! (I use a bloody broadband modem for christ sake) or laggy as hell.
but still, good game.
