I bought this game the day it came out, and played it for about a couple months before turning it in for Black Ops. I didn't really enjoy it a whole lot at first because I was one of the "COD" fanboys and was addicted to that type of shooter. But I will admit, I was wrong to judge this game so early. This is by far one of the best multiplayer games I have ever played, a true game that requires teamwork and communication to achieve victory. Needless to say I repurchased this game a couple weeks ago. I am no longer in the COD fever and is extremely excited for Battlefield 3! I feel there are many people like me out there who have stepped away from COD to this game.
