I do agree with Wheelman regarding the unnaturalness of the weapons; they sound cartoony and weak, as do the explosives. It will take about a half-hour to set up weapons and emblems, etc., as the interface is indeed "busy". Overall though, awesome game.
I don't know if it's just me but I think the game sounds good. Sure the guns aren't realistic but I think everything, especially the explosives, sound awesome on a high quality audio system. Except for the death machine and sentry gun though.
I do agree about the menus. It took some getting used to but I can fly through them now, not as quick as mw3 and blops though.
