1). I bought it digitally, the price was only a few quid more than most shops and websites were charging, but since no one had it in stock that few quid was worth it. And just because you don't agree please don't call me an idiot.
My apologies, I should clarify, that comment wasn't referring specifically to this game but any purchase through MS GoD, the pricing is insane, and by purchasing games this way you send the message that this pricing structure is okay.

2). Sorry if you didn't enjoy it, but I found it really fun if a little stingy with plot exposition. Many others did as well, including most reviewers.
It's not that I didn't enjoy it, it's that it's overhyped for what it is, the AI is appalling, the missions are repetitive and there's what 5 maybe 6 actually variations, it's fun sure, but it's not a good game, it's fun like Doom is these days.

3). And so what if it didn't look AAA? It had more imagination and originality than the last four CoD games put together. Even if I'd hated it I would still consider it thirty quid well spent to encourage more experimentation and less stagnation in gaming
My comment wasn't regarding the fact the game has been announced as profitable before launch. You hit the nail on the head with the CoD comment, but I'm not convinced this game is in any way more 'experimental'. I would say it had potential, it was a great idea, but it was poorly executed compared to what it could have been.
