    Although this has the potential to be a great game, I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole. Every foul-mouthed, immature 14 year old will be playing this. Griefing will be the norm...

    That's why they've got private lobbies. Buddy up with a mature crew and, boom, no more kiddie problems.

Day 1 releases are generally rough, but, so far, the 360 side of things has been nearly unplayable and PS3 is quite literally broken. On the upside, this may encourage many of those infernal tweens and teens to snap their discs in an adolescent frenzy, simultaneously reducing server load and increasing the gameplay experience.

    Ill wait for Christmas time, when this game will go down to ~$40 and the server stress will be less. Hopefully it will still be extraordinarily populated by then.

    Sounds like a good idea for a TechSpot Group/Crew.

    Not a bad idea, actually
