Too bad it doesn't include single player, that's all I'm interested in, and from what I hear, a weekend would be more than enough to play through it several times.

You are correct, and to be honest it's tries so hard to be "epic" that it comes off as an incoherent mess of a game.

Despite assurances that the multiplayer servers would be secure because they wouldn't be releasing "public" server files it was just as jacked up as MW2 in terms of hackers maxing out peoples stats and unlocking everything just by connecting to a server or doing the opposite and stripping everything back to zero. The maps are small, the weapon selection boring. The killstreak little RC car bomb is probably the coolest part of multiplayer.

I don't see how releasing mod tools for the game is going to do any good, unless they release the server code too.

Uninstalled as soon as the $$ map pack $$ was released.
