Ive only played 3 or 4 matches because it crashes a lot (Fix incoming) but heres what i thought so far:
Distracting motion blur while running... hell i would even remove the motion blur when walking.
While the game is not in the same GFX league as KZ2,U2,etc its still damn fun and it has a fast 'arcade' feel that i quite like.
The UI needs some polish though many of the texts are hard to read due being too tiny and on top of bright surfaces.
Great FAQ by Massa:

Issues we are fixing:
Framerate hitches that appear to be lag
-Known issue, will be patched.
Crashes at end of match (may be related to bringing up scoreboard too)
-Known issue, will be patched
Also - the beta may say your data is corrupt when you start. This is a patch item, and nothing major. No data is lost.
Stuff we are keeping an eye on, and may tweak:
-Motion-blur when running
-Various balance tweaks (aka, shield strength, leaper strength, etc)
-Level cap may be adjusted during beta
-Melee attacks from behind seeming inconsistent
-Leveling rate may be adjusted
What's next for the beta / R3?
We are currently busy working on our Day 1 Patch for Resistance 3, with many of the fixes and updates based on items you all have brought up here. We will then bring those fixes to the beta in a patch. We may also adjust the the level cap / progression at some point to allow you access to more items. This is still TBD, but we'll try to keep you updated.
