Exactly... it wasn't a slam at all. The GR preview was just recognizing all the single player notes BF3 cribbed from Modern Warfare. I don't think it's a bad thing at all, and from what I gathered, neither did the previewer. It just sounded like it felt familiar. He was extremely positive regarding the normal M-COM multiplayer play. Since it changed the least from the previous iterations, he spent the least amount of time on it. It was great, and still is great... which is good to hear.
