BTW - I just downloaded and played the new BF3 "Aftermath" expansion.
Looking and playing. Great mix of close quarters and large areas.
I'd say that if COD is frustrating you it's worth checking out but it is a very different game due to the scale of the maps.
They don't have the lag issues due to using dedicated servers but you will have to deal with
changing your gameplay style. You can't run and gun, shouldn't play solo
, and it's much more tactical
if you like that.
I really wanted to like that game and thought the larger maps would be like BTB on Halo but I was way wrong.... it's damn near impossible to drive a vehicle or aircraft and there is no training sims available. If your not in a vehicle your're getting killed by one or a someone sniping. I don't know which is more frustrating, that or the COD lag. I even played the campaign and enjoyed it up to the point where I had to pilot a helicopter... seriously, make the damn game a little more accessible for COD converts and it would be a win.
I played a bit last night, had a few matches with lag but mostly pretty smooth. Downloaded the new maps for Halo and played a bit but they are in a DLC lobby and CTF kept coming up so I left and played some campaign which is actually pretty sweet but so far I liked Reach better. I should be on this afternoon for a bit if you're around.
