At its current state, a simple resounding no.
From the get go, this game houses a multitude of various problems and bugs, underneath shall be the list summary and the detailed experiences after. (All within a half-hour first look at that!)
-Overcrowded Deathmatch Maps
-Poorly Optimized Graphical Settings
-Weird Starting FoV
-No Sense of Progression
-Various, Various Bugs!
Starting from the top, with the mention of broken spawns. There is no need for anyone to corner-camp or spawn camp, this game merrily spawns you either in front of the enemy or behind the enemy; repeatedly without a hitch. There is no spawn protection, so it is a game of cat and mouse repeat deaths/kills. The death match maps are tiny compared to the large quantity of people on them. 16 players overcrowding a map suitable for 8 - 10 players on top of the poor spawn system = some poor smuck getting spawn-killed 50 times over.
Graphical issues with the poor optimization with how things are handled, from other various forum posts, even those with beastly machines are having issues, having to turn things down to medium or lower to keep a frame-rate, this also comes with how my game defaulted my FOV to 100 at start, leaving a weird tunnel vision effect for me (I was able to change; it didn't keep after Apply until the second time). There is literally no sense of progression (from what I was able to play) within the game, everything is automatically unlocked from the get-go, no overarching goal to gain, nothing, just pick what you want and go with it.
As well, as with the overcrowding of maps, I myself was able to fall through the geometry from rapid spawns, seeing under the floor. I was able to rectify it by suicide changing class. These issues were all on TDM and DM, which brings up another issue; the D.O.A. community, there were only two servers with players on it at the current time of this writing, prior, much earlier in the afternoon (peak times) for the US, I seen a server listing of 5 servers, three DM, two TDM with active players. The other large listing of servers were completely empty.
The other issue, be it as massive as bugs, with any new game there are glitches, but this feels more like it didn't get the beta-testing length it needed, I was capable of winning an entire DM by being glitched out invisible (as if I am spectating still) and score 25 / 2. The two deaths were from me trying to fix the issue. On top of such, I've experienced lack of graphical loading, so we see a no-texture model of the gun, sometimes spawning the gun in my hand on top of a ghost no texture model of a gun on top of it, moving independantly. Sadly, by the time all these issues are fixed, the already D.O.A. community; it will be a ghost town. I had high hopes for this game and for me to experience all of this within THIRTY MINUTES of play, it isn't looking to well.
I'd love to play the other game modes... IF THERE WERE ANYONE PLAYING THEM.
