Scot, well considering what's happening in the world atm are you suprised? Wink Back in the day it was all abou Cold War Russian spies, now it's all Middle Eastern terrorists.

Well apart from getting tapped more times than the River Dance stage I really enjoyed the multiplayer, clearly there's a skill divide to be breached but I'll get there Wink

Might be getting this for Christmas. Almost got it yesterday but I decided to get LA Noire and Mass Effect 2 instead.

Gonna say goodbye to the outside world for a while. Smile

F1 2011 is probably ahead of this on my list, as much as a fan of Battlefield I am.

Apparently, this is my christmas present. December can't come soon enough. Very Happy

I hope you guys are enjoying the game so far? I don't know why, but checking on their website, OXM have only rated this 8/10. I'll be very surprised if COD MW3 is scored higher.

Have only played a bit online, and it's more of the same but better. You know what you are getting, and if you've played Bad Company 2, you can pick up and play.

But I finished the single-player campaign last night, and to be honest, I was underwhelmed. The gameplay was solid, there was some nice touches like the HALO drop (watch the video attached from 1 min on to avoid spoilers). It just felt too much like it was trying to be Modern Warfare, and that was very disappointing.

I'm guessing the H and A stand for High Altitude. L, O... Low Oxygen? I do know HALO jumps are bloody high and fast though!

HALO/HAHO are acronyms that describe methods of delivering personnel, equipment, and supplies from a transport aircraft at a high altitude via free-fall parachute insertion. HALO (High Altitude-Low Opening) and HAHO (High Altitude-High Opening) are also known as Military Free Fall (MFF).

In the HALO technique, the parachutist opens his parachute at a low altitude after free-falling for a period of time, while in the HAHO technique, the parachutist opens his parachute at a high altitude just a few seconds after jumping from the aircraft. HALO techniques date back to 1960 when the U.S. Air Force was conducting experiments that followed earlier work by Colonel John Stapp in the late 1940s[1] through early 1950s on survivability factors for high-flying pilots needing to eject at high altitudes. In recent years, the HALO technique has been practiced by civilians as a form of skydiving. HALO is used for delivering equipment, supplies, or personnel, while HAHO is generally used only for personnel.

In typical HALO/HAHO insertions, the troops are dispatched from altitudes between 65,000 feet (20,000 m) and 75,000 feet (23,000 m).

The origins of the HALO technique date back to 1960 when the U.S. Air Force was conducting experiments that followed earlier work by Colonel John Stapp in the late 1940s through early 1950s on survivability factors for high-flying pilots needing to eject at high altitudes.[1] Stapp, a research biophysicist and medical doctor, used himself as a human guinea pig in rocket sled tests to study the effects of very high g-forces. Stapp also solved many of the issues involved in high altitude flight in his earliest work for the Air Force, and subjected himself to exposure to altitudes of 45,000 feet (14,000 m). Subsequently, he helped develop pressure suits and ejection seats, which have been used in jets ever since. As part of the experiments, on August 16, 1960, Colonel Joseph Kittinger performed the first high altitude jump at an altitude of 19.5 miles (31.4 km) above the Earth's surface. However, the technique was used for combat for the first time during the Vietnam War in Laos by members of MACV-SOG. SEAL Team Six of the United States Navy expanded the HALO technique to include delivery of boats and other large items in conjunction with parachutists.

The technique is used to airdrop supplies, equipment, or personnel at high altitudes when aircraft can fly above surface-to-air missile (SAM) engagement levels through enemy skies without posing a threat to the transport or load.

For military cargo airdrops, the rigged load is pulled from the aircraft by a stabilizing parachute. The load then proceeds to free-fall to a low altitude where a cargo parachute opens to allow a low-velocity landing. Military personnel will later move to the landing point in order to secure the equipment or to unpack the supplies.

In a typical HALO exercise, the parachutist will jump from the aircraft, free-fall for a period of time at terminal velocity, and open his parachute at a low altitude. The combination of high downward speed, minimal metal and forward air-speed serves to defeat radar, enabling a stealthy insertion.

I got MW3 today in the post. I have absolutely no desire to play it just now so I may give it to my folk to give me back at Xmas. Seeing as they can't think of anything else to buy me Razz

I CAN say that the single player campaign in MW3 is EPIC. Blows BF3 out the water in that respect. Multiplayer I haven't tried yet.

Surprisingly, the only reason I want to play MW3 is for the Single Player, I actually liked the story of the MW games.
