-Free to play.
-Tactical Gameplay that encourages teamwork.
You need to pick up your teammates when they're downed, and tie down your enemies.
-Good variety of maps and custom maps to download. 6v6 or 12v12 quick games.
-Highly detailed character models with good animation.
-Good built in push-to-talk voice communication (not always on).
-Very minimally buggy, very smooth beta with minimal hangups.
-Spotting function by pressing 'Q'.
-Basic variety of starting weapons that feel pretty good: M9 Pistol, M4 Assault Rifle, SAW, Shotgun, M14 Auto-Sniper, added new M16 Burst Assault Rifle which seems very accurate, and the M24 Sniper Rifle which feels like the AWP from CS.
-Added class based system to keep people from spamming the more powerful weapons.
-Different sight attachments to choose from.
-You can have two sets of grenades at a time, 4 different types to pick from:
1 HE, 2 Stun(Flash) (Up to 4), 2 Smoke(Slow) (Up to 4), 2 Fog(Fast) (Up to 4).
-Newbs don't really pick up, tie down or spot. It might just not occur to them, but reminding them or reviving them yourself usually helps them learn.
-Only 1 kind of pistol currently, doesn't seem like they plan to add any others, as they have removed pistol selection entirely.
-No female soldier models. Since this is technically a recuiting tool for the Army, you would think they would target their entire audience. Women recieve the same training that men do.
