Yes! I pre-ordered from Amazon and it was delivered on 10th. Servers are up too so I have had a few hours of playing the MP and a quick look at the 2 Nuketown maps (Zombies and 2025)
Early indications are looking very good - 1-2 issues with the servers and a few updates (tweaks). It feels more like Black Ops than Modern Warfare. Maps look very good (of course I am only comparing with previous CoD games). My only criticism of the MP is that score streaks are NOT assigned to Class (like in MW3) and so this feels a little like a step back however I much prefer the 'score' streak system to 'kill' streak as this rewards the player for ALL in game efforts The 'Slayers' will have to work very hard to get enough Kills for the big rewards but those that play objectively will get the rewards easier (but then they are putting themselves in the firing line more and probably more responsible for the team winning matches!). However everything else seems much more 'polished'. Quick Scoping is possible but it isn't easy and I can't see to many running around the map using their sniper rifle like a shotgun (you are always going to get some that will try!) Camping isn't recommended as you won't get your score streaks as easily and there are so many counters (sights that show, perks that don't work - like ghost etc).
I haven't tried the Campaign yet or played 'Zombies' online - Just had a quick look at it offline! I must say that the Graphics have impressed me too and they are certainly better than the screenshots and videos. Whilst I will say they may not be in the same league as some games (uncharted, BF3) they are certainly the best I have ever seen in a CoD game. Even the level of detail in the maps is better than in any previous game (inc. DLC).
I know it is still early but I think this certainly has the potential to be the best CoD game to date. Early impression though is very good!
