So far I enjoy the matches.
You really will notice a very distinct difference in the game play, in that the difficulty is slightly harder, but not very much so.
AI will capitalize on your mistakes DEFINITELY, and I have almost lost several times. I've also been pinned several times.
I have won every match, but this time it feels as if I've had to work for each and every one of these victories. I can't just win with my brain on autopilot anymore. Must be focused.
However..... bad part...
The Community Creations and online... the servers in general are HORRID.
They are FAR worse then last year. I attempted to access Community Creations no less than at least 40 times. I only got through 3 times, and all three times, I was immediately disconnected before I could download ANYTHING.
These servers are complete fucking shit, and they are even worse and more infuriating than last year.
Also, Community Creations, for as much as they just plain don't work, have also FROZEN my entire system twice, causing me to unplug my entire Xbox and restart again.
This is really bad news and I hate to say it, but these servers are immensely worse than last year.
Last year was extremely jittery, and unstable, but they could work with persistence.
These servers are completly, utterly broken, and just simply do not work. The method that it kicks you out with it's also instant and almost without prompt or warning, making even the method that made last years terrible servers tolerable, nonexistent.
