Has anyone commented on SP yet? That would be the main reason for me to buy this game but I'm hearing some harsh reviews. But then again, most people reviewing this game are hardcore PC gamers that only like MP. No official reviews of the 360 version either.

Had a good chance to put it through it's paces now, the bug on operation metro where you fall through the map is still there.

Connection errors from battlelog, people not getting invites (worse on Chrome), Battlelog not showing server pings etc

I could go on, but it's buggy as hell to put it kindly.

I havent played much MP but from the sounds of it, the beta wasn't beta. If the "falling through the map" bug is still there, thats really sad. They've had time to fix it... and claiming it was an old build while the beta was up was a flat out lie. I had the green flashes in the beta too... I cant speak from experience yet as I havent played retail Op metro yet but it sounds like I was right.

360 crowd is waiting for their bread and butter... MW3.

360 reviews aren't looking promising...

I had a great time with some buddies last night! The game is a blast when you get a squad together

Anyone else having issues with buggy sound?

I played the SP for about 90 minutes last night and enjoyed most of it. The only part I didn't like was laser sighting ground targets from the air... the view is pretty crappy. Other than that the graphics are stellar, and with difficulty on hard I found it pretty challenging... but then I've never played a battlefield game before

Any one with a 2600k or i860/870/ i7 920 - supposedly game runs smoother without HT enabled. If thats the case we are probably looking at the old BF BC2 issue where the multi CPU optimizations in the Nvidia drivers were causing issues.

Worth trying -

The game runs perfectly smooth on the rig below at 1080p with Ultra Settings. It runs typically between 45-70 fps and has only dipped down to the low 30s in a few instances on Caspian Border.

Loved the Alpha, loved the Beta, LOVE the full game.

OMG, how can the textures look so bad on the 360? It's funny though, the whole HD texture pack thing in 2011. I've seen better looking textures 10 years ago on the PC. Running a console with a gaming running off the DVD is hardly the best experience, long loading times, it all sounds worse than the PC.
