Love this game, online multiplayer (the only reason i got it) is brilliant, had it for almost a week and i have played it everyday, time just flys by! not really touched the actual game or arcade mode yet, multiplayer is just too much fun!
You can play deathmatch (all against all) team death match (only shoot the other team) or capture the flag (work together to capture the other teams flag and return it to your base to score) there are also various options for how long a game plays, what weapons can be used, how many people can play in your room, password protection (so only people that have the password can get in)
EA messenger is pants, the preset message system isnt very good and you cant click on your friends and join the game they are in you have to look for them. It doesnt detract from the game really though. No voice chat on this game like you would expect from FPS games on PC or Xbox360, this doenst bother me at all as i wouldnt want to talk to the random people running around on it anyway lol
anyway like i say iv still got to try out the single player and arcade modes, so a whole new game to discover really! Graphics, sound, controls etc are all spot on (im not into all this high def stuff though, so may disapoint some people)
