So, I downloaded Dust 514 after being invited onto the open Beta about three weeks ago and I've had two or three attempts to get to grips with it.

Firstly, because it's the first thing I notice, it looks like butt. Is it running at 420p? Why on earth is everything so muddy after a 2gb download? The game is appalling and I can't figure out why, because some of the videos I've seen on gametrailers looked alright.

Secondly, what? What? What what? Omg, what the hell am I doing?

Oh, a game, I'm in a game! Oh god, what are the... I'm dead. Okay, here we go, this feels like it's trying to be a bit Halo so, oh, I'm dead!

And thus ends my experiences with it. I play a lot of current gen shooters and Dust does not feel like it belongs with the herd yet. I'm struggling to place the purpose of these public betas, they seem as they're as much about marketing as they are about testing. Did CCP miss the point, or how polished all of the other console public betas have been?
