good game the campaign is pretty short
the multiplayer is pretty fun lots of guns and customization. the sniper class is easier to use now all you hear running around in a hardcore game is sniper rounds passing by constantly.
So, like most people, I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the latest in the Battlefield series. I finally received it today from Gamefly, and immediately put it into my Xbox360 to try it out. I went through the normal "you must download this new update to play this game" screens, only to be told my hard drive was not an acceptable device. After being told this many times, I went on the EA website for help, since I had plenty of available memory for the download to occur. Well, turns out, I wasn't the only one with this issue. Numerous others were also unable to play the game, simply because, for some reason, the update wouldn't recognize the hard drive as being an acceptable medium to download to. And EA went above and beyond in helping everyone out... by saying they weren't going to do anything, and you should all just go out and buy a new hard drive. EA, you have just lost a long time player, and I will hopefully get others to stop supporting you as well. You make a game that people can't play, and just tell them to go buy something else (that the shouldn't have to buy) to fix the problem that you created.

+ Shooting mechanics are great
+ Variety of different levels (from open space to corridor shooting)
- Story is a mess
- Non existing character development
- Glitches, bugs that vary from randomly killing you to forcing you to restart entire mission
- All difficulties feel the same
- Abysmal ending that makes you wonder: "where is the second half of the single player"
+ Variety of different modes
+ Recon class is now actually useful
+ Battlepacks (certain amount of points earn you xp benefits, upgrades for weapons, dogtags)
+ Testing range (can practice to fly helicopters or try out tanks)
+/- Significant amount of weapons and upgrades
- Same textures from BF3
- Controls are horrible (you use sticks to accelerate, if I wanted halo controls I would just play halo)
- Maps are unbalanced
- Most of upgrades do the same exact thing
no sound, spawning without weapons, crashing (had at least 20+ console freezes during of total 11 hours of gameplay), hardcore elements somehow made to the normal mode (hitmarkers don't appear, reloading causes to waste entire clip), iron sites sometimes glitch and all you see is a big black dot, lag
