That is, my friend, highly subjective
OT: Tried the game and I have to say that it feels pretty much like old one. It's clear that it's not finished, but basics are done etc.
Jets are more controlable and setting your movement direction before jumping isn't really that much needed now. Regular jumps aren't that crucial now aswell.
Many changes towards less complicated gameplay (combination of driver and gunner roles, so Beowulf can actually be piloted by 1 man now; regen system; more Unreal-ish type of gameplay with less accent on some strategical parts of the game, may be fixed with introduction of new maps though...). So I don't really expect other vehicles (Thundersword bomber, Havoc assault air transport and Jerico mobile base), unless, again, there will be much larger maps in the future.
Vehicles work differently now, when they got resistances instead of energy shields. Beowulf and even Wildcat are significantly more clumsy now (especially the former).
Some XP cost numbers are just plain scary.
Armory really looks like it was engeneered by the Department of Redundancy Department at first, but since weapon system changed significantly, it's ok I guess.
That's it, basically. By the way, what would you suggest me to do with initial 250 gold? I'm thinking of getting that Heavy parody, whatever it is called (Doombringer?), while buying Technician with first 7k XP I'll earn.
P.S. Harmless friendly fire set by default is heresy
Though in online environement it's pretty much needed.
