    I played it and its fun, but does seem kinda generic. What i really like is how you can completely customize your different load outs with any weapon or power ups you want. There are three different maps if i remember right, and each team has different objectives at different times. Some of them include protecting or stealing intel, and arming/disarming bombs to name a few. The graphics are nothing too special. I mean they aren't terrible, just nothing to special. I think Section 8 will be the type of game that won't revolutionize a genre, but will still be a lot of fun to play.

    Well fuck me if this didn't come as a surprise.
     
    Just played the beta for half an hour (it's 3 AM here), and it was really good fun. Encourage you to try it out. It's like Tribes meets BF, pretty much, with a good albeit a bit cluttered interface. Combat is smooth and fast, and dynamic objectives keeps it interesting. I went from a ''meh, got other stuff in september to buy'', to a probable day one purchase.
     
    This comes from a guy that is totally starved on team based MP of this kind at the moment, and I have played every single Tribes game, and every single Battlefield game, for hundreds of hours. This is my favorite genre, and despite being generic, this is really polished and seems to encourage teamplay - which is what is most important in shooters like these.
