Welll i downloaded the demo for Xboxlive and i have to say.... if it isn't diffrent from the real game than i want my time back.... seriously...

Oh, didn't realize you were playing the 360 version. It's noticeably worse than the PC version, same for PS3.

I really enjoyed Enemy territory and Return to Castle Wolfenstein's Multiplayer but this was just bad.

No way! Unless your playing it on the Xbox360 or PS3, then I can agree. But if on the PC, then do you like class based team games at all?

I enjoy class based multiplayer games and I played it on the pc. I thought it was terrible. There is nothing special about this game. The environments are crap and the classes are weak. This multiplayer could not hold up for very long at all.

Wow you must've either given up instantly or you just have no clue about how to play the game.
Tell me, what were you expecting from the game?

Saying that both the maps and classes are crap and that you're into class based shooters all in the same post is just tells me that you're terribly misinformed. QW has the deepest Class/Map dynamic of any shooter I've played (and that's right about... all of them from Tribes and up). Every objective on the map requires a specific class to complete (with the exception of Data Brains and Forward Spawns), and that class requires back-up from every support class in order to succeed. It's not just run in and stand on the flag anymore.

And all of this is done without compromising the shooting aspect of it, every class is on the same level as far as combat potential goes (since every class has access to the standard rifle and pistol) and the weapons aren't gimped in accuracy in favor of newer players (I'm looking at you BF2!). You hit where you aim.
Also movement plays a huge part here with unadulterated strafe-jumping goodness, there are many tricks to increase speed such as the basic sprint, strafe-jumping, equipping a lighter weapon in-hand (such as knife or pistol) and ramp-jumping. This opens up a lot of potential for trickjumps and the like and every map is designed with that in mind.

This style of gameplay requires team-play and coordination, something that you'll have to adjust to quickly if you want to stand a chance (the PC community is really the most teamplay oriented bunch of players I've ever encountered in standard pub-play). I admit that the game has a steep learning curve and it shuts a lot of newbies out, for good or bad, but if you stick with it there's a near inexhaustible source of depth to be found there. In every class, map and vehicle there's always a new trick or strategy to learn.

It is really a shooter made exclusively for the hardcore shooter fan and once it grabs a hold of you it won't let go, I'm currently at 200h+ and see no reason to stop, I guess it's the same for every one else with 600h+ as well (the guys in the top of the leaderboard are all at ~1800h+ :P). And if you can't see that then... well... you're to blame I guess (or the games' sub-par tutorial). :)

But saying that the game is "terrible" is not true by any stretch of the imagination.

*Oh and also, I'm not basing any of this on the gimped console versions, your experiece may vary. ;)

I bought it online for 20 EUR last evening and should get it today around noon. (In 6 hours) Exited!

I played the PC multiplayer demo / beta when the game was launched but since I already bought all the Battlefield's and this felt just like it, I wasn't planning on buying it full price. However it wasn't bad at all. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that you lose all your upgrades after every game. But now that I have seen that exact same thing in Frontlines Fuel of War I see it's point. The better you play, the quicker you get your toys.

I got it new at a store for 10 bucks. Best 10 bucks I ever spent.

I felt exactly the same for the first 5 to 10 hours I played of this game (on the pc), however once I realised the depth of play utilising the different classes I became rather obsessed.  I must be at 150+ hours and along with a few friends I still regularly play the game. 

note: I saw this game in my local hmv going for £7!  and that was the collectors edition.

You can't really compare the PC version and 360 version. The PC version is much better and the 360 version really just looks awful for the amount of time it took to actually come out.

the console version of this game turned out absolutely terrible, I'm not even hugely into it on PC either, but I can tell you the difference is huge...playing the demo on the PC is better than the full game on consoles, which is sad.

Yeah the pc version is incredible - console versions i avoided like the plague - with a good reason
