I'm 75% downloaded now. The only thing I care about at the moment is stick handling. I'll give my first impressions within the hour. Although it seems in true EA style the servers are f'd

they bought the Medal of Honor: Limited Edition.  The rest of us are waiting until friday when it's open to everyone.  Yes, you'll need xbox live gold as it is multiplayer only.

OK here we go....first impressions.

Yes the graphics are a bit weird at first. I did think OMG these suck as I've been playing smooth MW2 for the last few weeks. Then I stuck BC2 on and they were even worse. After 10mins of play though the graphics started to get better and better as they do when switching from BC2 to COD

The movement is much closer to COD over BC2. The feel of running and rush is smooth and silky but the best thing is the stick handling.

This is going to be made of win for the XIM3. Tiny deadzone....maybe smaller then COD's. INstant full speed when you peg the stick. Only tried MW2 config and that actually wasnt too bad. a bit grainy though. Once I got pasted the first 15 mins the environments really came alive and you start to see where they spent the GPU power over frame rate.

The sound on this game is the best I've ever heard. Easily the star of the show on boot up

Recoil is insanely high which is great. The XIM3 will dominate this game.

There is noticeable aim assist IMHO ... not huge, but definitely there. I've been playing a lot of BC2 on PC recently so it was very easy to notice the aim assist. I reckon this will work well with a ST, the acceleration curve felt ok but only played the one round.

As mentioned above the sound is quality. It does have a more of a COD feel to it, but still very DICE. :)
