I am one of the 3.1 million and I'm glad i didn't listen to fanboys bashing the game before they even played it.

Thoroughly enjoying it with hardly any problems. Only had lag once in about a 1000 matches and have been kicked only a couple times. about as many times as happened in halo and MW2 on xbox.

Does feel good to not have to pay to play it online though. Great game, would recommend to any FPS fan.

I sold my copy (for $122, lucky me) on ebay because I couldn't enjoy my experience with this game, however, I'm envious of the people that do like this game. Enjoy :-)
