Amazing game, however may be lacking for some

The game play is one of a kind, the campaign is deep and sophisticated, and ultimately Epic was able to build off of Gears 1, which was by far a personal favorite. However, I play online mulitplayer primarily, and at times the experience is lacking. Patches have been released to fix lag and glitches, however there are still soft-spots.

With the complexity of the gameplay it is no wonder that it may lag at times, and the patches are improving it somewhat. If some aspects seem unnessecary, and it annoys you that much that they exist, they can be avoided, and never really decrease the integrity of the online-play that significantly.
