I bought it. So far, I don't regret it. In fact, I regret buying L4D2 more than MW2. I haven't seen many laggy games, and 90% of my games have been lag-free/hacker free, so I don't mind the matchmaking system at all.

I got it as part of the Best Buy "Buy 2 Get 1 Free" deal. While I am still ticked off with the matchmaking bull, the game itself plays very well. The additions are nice, removals of features is of course not good, although, it's nothing game breaking. The only time I have seen a laggy host is when I was the host, thanks to some lovely Rogers P2P throttling. I've gotten dropped twice in the total of 30 or so hours i have put into it.
So, it's nothing amazing for a PC game, but the game itself is still very fun. And as always, I will pick up a keyboard and mouse before I think of touching a controller.

It's great! Play it only if you finished the CoD4 campaign though, or else you'll ruin it and you won't understand the characters at all.

They're actually pretty fun to deal with. When I play with my friends, we usually play "Who can knife the hacker". Helluva good time. That is, if you don't count the deaths you get running towards him in an open field.
