Battlefield 4 demo worth playing or wait until release?

I don't want to waste time downloading and playing something that isn't worth it. I don't have a bandwidth limit but my download times aren't great. I could be doing something way moar important like downloading pr0n and playing a different game online but I wouldn't be able to if I am downloading the demo. I heard the demo lags like hell, is it true?

no its not worth it, dont waste your precious dial-up time downloading it.

It's fun and a good demo of the final product in a sense. Regardless of what they tell you the core gameplay isn't going to change from the current beta so I would base my purchase off it. The map also quickly becomes repetitive with no other maps providing variety.

Tons of server issues though and expect to get kicked out at random.
ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

I've enjoyed it, it's free, no reason not to play it.

Just wait. It's fun, but it's kind of a mess and gets boring fast. It won't keep you occupied until the release. I already went back to BF3 and CS.

Generally I think betas are rarely worth playing. If you have the patience it is actually more fun to just play the release-version than to play a buggy unoptimized beta that is usually about 6 months behind the most current version that the developer is working on.

I would only play the beta to beta test, not to expect anything more than that. That just leads to frustration and disappointment.

its been fun for me so far and the graphics are actually better then BF3's.

Also don't dismiss domination. Its kinda like a hybrid of TDM and conquest.
