I did (bf3 for 360).
Bought the limited edition from Walmart for the same price as the normal one. The LE gives you access to the first expansion pack when it's released.
It's a lot different than black ops that's for sure. I've only played for about an hour - mainly due to the ea servers being crap on launch day.
It comes with 2 discs - 1 for multiplayer/co-op and 1 for single player campaign. You also choose to install the high def version or scaled down version.
You can also sign up thru ea.com to get more features (a pain in the azz because you have to log into 3 separate sites to accomplish this and they all crashed yesterday- the message boards were full of posts like "I keep getting error message" etc. total fail)
Actual gameplay: my first thought was "I don't like it". Keep in mind ive been playing black ops for the last 6 months so that's what I'm use to. I know there's a learning curve so I'm dealing with that. Multiplayer is set up like an updated system of bf2mc in that you can choose which server you join along with map and game mode.
The few maps I played are huge. Gonna take a while to learn all these suckers. The vehicles are fun...especially the jets although you'll have to wait in line for them.
The soldier type/load out system seems cool. Lots of gadgets I look forward to unlocking.
I'll wait on my official review after the servers calm down and I get the hang of it, but right now I'm thinking I'm going to like mw3 better.
