So Close to Great

Let me start off with the many good things about this game.
The visuals are great, vibrant and well crafted.
The weapons are numerous, detailed and the ability to earn add-on is always a plus, makes playing for hours rewarding.
The environments are very interactive, yes you can destroy the giant building in Siege of Shanghai but you can also shot the fire extinguisher in the underground objective A. Detail is done right.
Multi-player is fun and there are numerous options for game play.

Now here is the part that makes me absolutely done with this game and DICE forever. And it's only 1 thing but in my opinion it ruins the replay value to the point of no return.

The multiplayer is basically unplayable, at least on XBOX 360. Like I said, when it works its amazing BUT 100% of time it will freeze your entire console. Maybe not on your first round of conquest but after a few rounds, you'll be scoping down an enemy and BEWM, frozen. Which means you have to manually cycle your console. That is correct, it's not just the game that freezes, it's your entire console. I had this game out for 3-4 months, hoping beyond hope that one of the 9 updates they released during that time would fix this issue but sadly no. I must have cycled my XBOX 50-75 times in that period. Its a non-redeeming issue for me, now a days replay value makes a $70 game worth it. But when you get 30 mins in and you're staring at a frozen screen for the 4th time that evening, it's frustrating to say the least. Lastly, the campaign is very short but whatever, I rented for the multiplayer.

This game was so close to great but I simply could not deal with the constant freezing. If you've got an XBOX 360 I would suggest taking a pass on this game and find another FPS.

I had the hard drive issue as well. I can't believe they wont fix the issue???? I have lost all respect for this series and the maker as well, EA, not cool at all, we spend our hard earned money on these games. So all and all I cant tell you a thing about the game, sorry.
