well i started the download at 5:00 its 10 till 9:00 now

and twice now it has said- something liek this cannot be downloaded or some shit.


anyway- its back at 1% now and not moving i was up to 32%. they should not allow so many people to download sumthing that it just wont work- They need to make people wait in line or sumthing- instead of the who;e world being stuck at 1% getting .00001 kb/s


what a crock of shit

The automatic update alone took about 5-10 min, and how big could that possibly be.

I dont know about everyone else, but I think 1200 points for this download is insane thats like $22 canadian, it should be 500-800 points tops.

the auto update only took me like a half a minute- but i did it early. and the downloading was moving along fine for me- trucking along as fast as anyother dl. then at 30% it just crapped out- like i said soooo many people just kept dling it. i mean why odnt they cut the people off from it- or increase the bandwidth so that people who are already succesfully dling dont have to deal w/ this.

i have never bought anything off the marketplace yet, and i dont think i will be doing it again, at least not for a long long long time. the low bandwidth has ruined it for me. if they are not going to have enough bandwidth then whynot develop a system that places people in line to download it- like a file sharing program does with music ... poor planning MS

similar packages were released on the xbox for around $20 on a disk at retail, so i think its a good deal with all things considered. i havent purchased it yet but im sure i will when i get some extra $$.

that sucks about the slow DL, everything for me lately has been damn fast though. how big is the package? i cant see anything taking 4 hours to download.

I tried to download it last night. The DL got as far as 38% when I went to bed.

Woke up this morning and the DL failed.


I started it back up and it began from 1%.

five minutes later it was done.

well if you haven't got them yet or someone hasn't told you yet- the new maps are great. they are big, which adds a different twist to the game. the newly relit maps are cool too- add a whole different aspect to them. the new campaign is really tough on muliplayer- plan on havin at least 8 people in order ot beat them. it definitely was worht 15 bucks.

the maps are huge and densely populated.

to me it feels like the AI is even "smarter". they tend to seem like they try to flank you more often and there are also more trucks with mounted guns around - 1 shot kills from them suck.

im loving them so far
