I'm glad I got to try the alpha, but I'll wait until the beta to decide if I want the game when it initially releases.
I doubt I play much PvP, so all the PvE modes are the main attraction for me. Roaming around old Russia looking for random tasks to complete got old as I got better because the intensity of the encounters was so low and there was barely a penalty for dying.
The strike mode however was a ton of fun, especially co-op. My favorite co-op experience last gen was Resistance 2's mode, and this game's strike mode leans in that direction. What was missing compared to that game is having a ton of enemies swarming from all directions with multiple giant mid-bosses attacking the team, but maybe those encounters come later on.
The raid mode sounds most promising though, which is why I am mostly optimistic for the final release. The weapon/gear hunting seems cool, the sweet visuals will be even better in the beta according to the developer, so I'll try it out again in July before I make a final decision.
