I played it last night. Enjoyable. I haven't been playing any FPS MP for a while, but still had a >1 K/D in 2 out of 3 rounds, and I'm a run'n'gun type. Of course I got most of the kills when I exercised a smidge of patience
Nice sounds on the guns. New animation for jumping over stuff, and it has prone (hold down R3, took me a while to figure that out). The first map was outside in a park, then into a subway station, then back into a semi-open urban area with 2-3 story multi-room buildings. I didn't really notice any environment destruction going on, but I just chose Support as my role, so I couldn't blow anything up on my own. I'll have to pick engineer next time and try to blow some stuff up. The variety of the level design was nice. I almost cancelled my pre-order because I stayed up till midnight playing it, and I don't want to neglect the more meaningful things I have to do. The urge is strong to want to play it more to get better... and unlock stuff... We need to implement achievements and unlocking gear in schools. Like the Arithmetic Proficiency badge unlocks the Calculator
It's amazing how motivational all these meaningless little ribbons are. ATM I'm still going to get it so I can check out the 3D, or I may just wait for reviews. I have to see what the pre-order goodies are. I think you get the Return to Karkand bonus pack with the Limited Edition which should be available for at least the first few months. Otherwise I think Amazon is just giving out special dogtags, meh...
