    I feel retarded because I didn't pre-order this and have to wait until the weekend to purchase it. I have to sit here and read about how much fun you guys are having.

    Just applied for the Platoon. Game runs 2-3 times better than it did in Beta. I can run on High with a constant 30fps in almost all maps.

    I am running at around 50 at 1080p on Ultra , but scaled down a couple settings and put AA at 2x. This game runs pretty damn good for us with a little older 1 gig cards. It'll at least keep me happy until the 7000 series. I have it on my second computer on a 22" CRT and ultra also (GTX460)and seems to run well. Haven't frapped it yet though. Still do a lot of tweaks with key bindings and crap. The game is fun as hell, but man I'm getting slaughtered. Getting a lot of points , just dieing a lot. The Norm :)

    I'm going to lose my damn mind.... First my Ultra won't work right for some reason, then I get random BSOD while trying to load into the game.....

    So MSAA and even HBAO are obvious big hits but what graphics options besides shadows can/should I lower to squeeze out some more frames without affecting IQ too greatly?

    Just wait until you see how broken the game is nvidiaintel :/ I loved the beta but honestly the beta was running much smoother than this crap they call a final release, even with the latest game patch their are still graphical issues that make it near unplayable on some systems as well as extensive crashing :/

    *cough* immature GPU drivers *cough*

    Maybe because not only is Frostbite II a completely new engine, but its also the most demanding

    Yeah.

    There are def issues but the game is not broken across the board, not even close, especially compared to pretty much all other releases and not just battlefield games.

    Even so wait until you see what I am talking about, it may be a new engine but that is no excuse for a game to be this broken at release especially after the beta....

    Your the only one that has complained to me about this game. So far all im hearing is good things, and even if there are some issues i never let that get in the way. We should all be happy that this game was built from the ground up for us PC gamers rather then the traditional console ports

    I agree on 10's, obviously it's not perfect. But 8's or 9's I can see. I don't rate games on CTD's or any of the other things you listed, unless they don't fix the problems is a decently quick manner. I actually rate the game on the game. And a lot of those issues remain in MP games for years, even the most polished ones.

    Reading all of the "red" reviews. 1 guy says it's a great game, but has to give it a 0 since they blantantly copied COD, another gives it a 0 because it was so bad he was crying the entire time he played it, another "beautiful graphics don't make this game good", one actually wrote a decent review of why he dislikes it (battlelog and such) but no way does that make it a 0, one says the graphics are bad (lol?). And numerous under the 5 rating just say bad SP (which apparently tanks the rating of a series that use to never even have SP), or say it's Battlelog. Almost every review I just listed is a biased or bad review. I ain't a huge fan of Origin, but it's working fine, Battlelog is working fine. These are just rage reviews when their emotions are running hot, and I would discount almost all except the one guy complaining about Origin and Battlelog (the one that gave it a 0) simply because he actually wrote a lot, and his details in problem, but he just went way extreme on his rating.

    When a game is so broken at release that patches actually make things worse to the point consumers are unable to even get the product to load properly I am sure that I might be one of the few TPU members having severe issues and mentioning in here but I am far from the only TPU member who has a nearly unplayable game due to a rushed release.

    Currently waiting 23 minutes for an EA tech support agent to vent to.

    So today my party features don't work. When I try and join a friends party it says "Party not found", when I click "Create Party" nothing at all happens.

    Damn it! I shot down a jet with a tank shell and was spamming F12 realizing that I'm on Origin and not Steam. So no screen shots.

    It was so epic D:
