I downloaded it and have been playing for a week. Other than a little personal system lag ( I need more RAM ) I've been having a blast, my very first kill was a headshot. Haven't seen anything that looks like cheating yet, but being an online game I'm sure there are bound to be a few of them around.
It is what it is and with a good organized platoon or squad you can faceroll your enemies quick and efficiently. This is not the kind of game you solo, you probably could but it's much more fun with a group to help watch your back.
Amazing Games but this last patch has caused terrible performance issues.
Before the patch I was getting a steady 30 fps but now it's almost unplayable. 5-10 fps if I'm lucky

If you've a 64-bit machine with 32-bit OS, this game will crash every hour or so.
Performance took a hit last patch, but I suspect this will be fixed pretty pronto. Now if they can stop it crashing for me I'll be a happy bunny.
Oh, i7 2.8 Ghz with 4Gb ram, win XP and ati 5830 1 Gb here and it runs fine. Why XP? I hear your cry; lots of reason, think some up.
I'm sporting the following system:
i7-3770k @ 3.5 GHz (3.9 GHz turbo boost), 16 GB DDR3 @ 1333MHz, nVidia GeForce GTX 660 2 GB, and PlanetSide 2 is installed onto a 150GB SSD which also houses my OS (Windows 8).
I get 60 FPS (vsync) in the warp gate and anywhere from 35-50 in large battles (at Tech Plants, Amp Stations, and Bio Labs). The game runs pretty well other than in random areas where performance hitching occurs. They're working on a fix for that.
The game is quite fun but somewhat grindy. However, it is free, so if you feel like shooting some folks you won't have to spend a dime unless the cert grind gets to be too much.
Try it out.

I've been spending a lot of time in the game and havent found any cheating at all (not saying that there isnt, just havent seen it myself). I've hooked up with some great people in squads and have had a great time.
We?re all dead, just say it.

Iv yet to notice any cheats but planetsides performance is pretty damn good.
The UI changes destroyed my game, every time a player runs into and out of my minimap radius my hud goes into epileptic shock. From what I hear this has to do with the map still wanting to add little green dorito's marking players.
On the other hand I love the nerf to "Call outs".
However they still didn't fix playing on low graphics giving the advantage of seeing stealth unit perfectly.
Perofrmance was always spot on for me..
I jsut bursnt myself out with months of beta testing and a solid month of playing after release.. This is a game I will get back to at some poing as it was great fun
Before the patch game performance was not an issue at all for me. After the devs released it there has been a serious performance hit to the game, The game was unplayable in SLI mode for me, but after disabling it I started to experience stuttering when approaching larger battles.
The devs quickly issued a hotfix, but it broke the damage for the TR main battle tank and turrets on the bases. However the next day they issued another hotfix to resolve these issues. As a result I was able to enable SLI again and play the game.
The stuttering issue remains to be a big problem. According to in-game messages from the devs yesterday they are in the prcoess of finding a resolution to the this issue too.
