Feel like Ièm talking to myself in this thread, but anyway.
The more I play this game the more layers and levels you find, the more I like it.
Did my first Raid last night, over 3 hours of intense game play, so much more than just shoot 'em stuff. Very enduring. I didn't even finish, was nearly midnight and I had to be up at 5am. Can't remember the last time a game sucked me in that much.
Overall, I liked the story mode. Love the PvP, best thing since MW2. Strikes are super fun. Could do free play and public events for hours. Raids are next level. So many aspects come into play. You need to change out weapons and perks throughout if you have a fighting chance of making it through. You need mics and you have to play as an organized team.
The only downfall to that, and this is a factor in strikes too. People leave, they are really bad or just not committed. So brutal when you have a 3 man strike, 1 guy leaves (certain matches won't send in another player) and the other guy sucks. Just played the other day, buddy left right out the gate, other dude was so bad it was painful, he was just dead all the time. Felt bad leaving but I couldn't take it anymore. If you got buddies, or now I've met up with guys on forums a couple times now. It's pretty fun.
