Ok they really need to fix the spawning... one some maps I can spawn right behind people 3-4 sometimes 5 times in a row... obviously easy kills... But they do it to me too.. spawn, look 360 nothing... enemy spawns behind me ..dead. Lame as hell sometimes.

What kinda game mode mail? Seems odd you would ever be spawning next to anyone unless they're capping your flag, spawning on squad mate, or playing squad deathmatch.

unlocked rocket pods for jets... although i got the main ideas of dogfighting now, it is still a struggle to bring down a plane with the pilot together. once i shot the plane down, and the pilot got ejected upwards into the sky, and i turned around and splattered him all over the c0ckpit as he was parachuting down.

my main struggle is that once i bring the mouse all the way down my mousepad, i have to lift it up and bring it to the top again, and this break in the turn is what allows tons of guys to get away.

also, does anyone know what causes the jets to shake violently? because it happens to me very often and it is hard to aim when you are sitting inside of a blender.

I plugged in my xbox 360 controller, much much easier to fly with. Button config is a bit weird, but after trying a few different variations i found the default set up works the best for me. I'm still no good with a jet, but it's definitely a lot easier than with the mouse.

+1 here.

Its nothing groundbreaking, its nothing fantastic, its nothing spectacular, but overall its decent enough to keep one entertained. I would say its on par with your standard COD campaign. Not like MW2 was any better than this, that game had a far more ridiculous story. At least the BF3 campaign was more believable.

Yeah it took me about 4 nights of a few hours or less to beat the SP, I just played when I got home from work. It wasn't amazing, but it was good enough. I sure as hell didn't buy bf3 for sp though.
