Just downloaded and played the two levels. Boo that the beta lasts only for 7 days.
It's kind of fun - better than my expectations. They do emphasize on teamwork a lot, but unfortunately, without too much in-game guidance, a lot of it is trial and error initially. After you get used to it, the teamwork aspect works pretty well, but I worry it might get tedious after a while. The drop-in aspect is a bit annoying - it interrupts your game to ask for a reload, and resets everything (sometimes without ammo). Production values are good - looks less sharp than ToD and ACiT, but not bad for so much happening at once on screen. It's good to see these characters in action again and it's pretty funny from the levels included.
Final verdict: originally was going to skip, but will reconsider based on final reviews.
FYI - download is 2GB and will need upgrade to PS firmware 3.72.
