When you think about it... he did very well. on most game footage the player gets killed 3 times in a 2 minute clip! he got killed once in a six minute clip.

some individuals just dont learn...they think by posting negative comments six times they are more likely to be heard.. When actually they just look six times dumber ! This game looks great.. It's one of the reasons why I'm investing in the 360 once again. Game On !

I cannot wait, and you cannot turn off FF and Team killing so that is going to keep it more realistic and crazy. See you on XBL
