Alan Baxter from wedotech.net talks about the top 10 things that annoy him about Modern Warfare 2 in this entertaining article. Check out Alan's points, seeing if you agree with them and let us know what else bugs you about the game.
Well his numbers 1, 6 and 10 are to do with the people playing the game not MW2 itself. I agree with the glitches point, but the rest are just same old bandwagon noises, sounds to me like he just sucks at the game.
Oh I don't suck mate, I own ;) Still annoyed by these aspects though.
If you own why do you get annoyed by campers and n00b weapons? Stats? I find no weapon over powerful, and I can deal with campers easily. I have more trouble with rushers with Cold Blooded :)
A good game is designed to prevent people from doing that kind of stuff without being too annoying. They could've stopped boosters by having a points-per-week limit or have some kind of in-game reporting system. They could've made camping less effective (admit it, it's nearly impossible to stop camping) by removing prone or taking away the scavenge perk.
Did you see all the threads on the BF:BC2 about not having prone. Developers, like everyone else won't be able to please everyone all the time, its impossible. Your dammned if you do, your dammned if you dont.
Thought it was top 100.
its the unlablanced Killstreaks. In Objective based games everybody is going for a high kill count instead of the objective.
BC2, like KZ2, has gigantic maps, in comparison to MW2. Prone would make snipers waay too hard to take down and break the game.
This list is lame. Mostly whiny complaints for people who can't adjust their gameplay. There are easy ways to change your gameplay to deal with noob tubers and campers. Half of the items on the list have nothing to do with what the developers could or couldn't do. And the reason why this list is stupid? It didn't even mention the number 1 reason that made MW2 absolutely broken: the terrible respawning system.
he must not be good. i feel like he has an excuse for everything. who doesnt hate noob tubes and campers especially when they ruin your kill streak.. my advice is to get better learn where they camp and learn where the spam spots are. if you want tanks play battlefeild. seriously mw would not be the same. even more crap for you to complain about when you get owned by them too. and btw host migration works and its pretty awesome. i would really love to see a hardcore mode that does not allow kill sreak awards/perks just so i can play against people who rely on aim skills so i can get better as well.
Buy Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Then all your problems will be resolved and you can get back to having FUN!!!
Just as I would with any game out there. The devs can't make a perfect game for everybody, there will always be aspects of every game that we don't like. I will say however that the biggest complaint I have about MW2 is the complainers. Those that constantly complain about the game and yet they continue to play it. If you hate the game so badly then stop playing it. There are other games out there and perhaps the grass is greener on the other side of the fence for you there.
There will always be people who find things to comlpain about in every game. At the end of the day, as far as shooters go, and the COD franchise, its an entertaining game. Worth the price tag IMO with good online playing. No game will ever be considered perfect by everyone. That's why there's so many to choose from, and they keep getting better.
...the contributer is the one who might have wrote the article and is defending his cause in posts 1, 1.2, and 1.4 ... and this is one of the many MANY why N4G fails, imHo. "Thought it was top 100." ~SupeerStebbi Well... there's easily enough material from that broken PoS "game" to make a top 100 reasons MW2 fails article... and stay away from the whiny points.
I don't see why people get so annoyed at campers. It's just one way of playing the game. I do get annoyed at the fact that the same idiots on my team get continually killed by a guy sitting in the same spot. Is it really that much trouble to go round the back of him and then try to kill him? Getting killed by a camper once is fair enough because you didnt expect him to be there. But getting killed five times by the same guy is just ridiculous. There's no really overpowered weapons, although one man army and noob tubing gets annoying.
#1 campers: I hate ppl that complain about campers... EVERY GAME ONLINE THAT INVOLVES SHOOTING OTHERS HAS CAMPERS!!! I have 2 classes made for campers and both have smoke!!! #2 noob weapons: im dam good with a 203 but i only bust it out when i keep getting killed by it... its also used on one of my camper killer classes #3 no party chat: doesn't annoy me at all #4 poorly designed maps: i agree with this but all shooters will have choke points and depending on your skill level you can defeat these... again use smoke #5 lag/game ending: P2P servers... deal with it #6 boosters: main reason i dont play free4all #7 glitches: tell the truth i dont see this much on PSN anymore but with that care package glitch it almost made me trade in my game #8 lack of decent perks: I like the perks but imagine this game being like Socom without kill streaks... thats what makes ppl camp the most... kill streaks #9 no vehicles: i would love this but then again the maps are WAY 2small and the game would be much different if it had them... i remember my first online game (Socom 3)and running a group around in my humvee and dropping then off along a tree line setting up a offensive postion that covers a huge amount of ground... it felt real and fun #10 immature kids: dont find this much on PSN but i wont lie.. they are there. I mute right away when i hear a preteen even if they are not talking sh!t... i also mute ppl on my team that are mad and b!tch about getting killed... if your not talking about in game positions i mute also. anyway there you go... thats my take on MW2 hate... the game is great fun when your in a good room with a good mix of runners and campers... a team full of campers will make for a very boring match
The problems about campers in MW2 is that the way killstreaks are made, it rewards camping.
I am probably a camper, well atleast that's what my stats say but in all honesty I just play stealthily and ALWAYS crouch. While I agree campers are annoying on objective based stuff I agree it's par of the course but as technology advances we'll see less and less of them with stuff like destruction not even walls will save you.
I don't have a problem with campers as long as they don't sit on roof defending a flag that the enemy has taken with no intention of helping to capture it. TDM or FFA was made so you could do nothing to help your team, not domination.
widely regarded as a game for kids,noobs,glitches,campers and retards....poor maps and no beta phase mean this game is the bastard son of Cod4.Activisions reluctance to give Infinity ward the time to make the game half decent and or Infinity Wards arrogance in thinking whatever they released would be awesome equals thee most overated let down game in history. The good news is Infinity Ward are no more and whatever the new studio does next will be watched closely for a repeat of this fiasco by real gamers desperate for a return to form.
OMG LAG LAG LAG LAG LAG!!!
Pretty lack luster article. It should be titled top 10 reasons I am about to whine about MW2.
this topic never dies
Give me a new Modern Warfare 2 game mode which bans any kind of perk or kill streak being used. Call it something like 'Call of Duty Classic' and return the game to being just a great FPS without the kiddies.
Whats wrong with killstreaks and perks? they add a LOT of variety and customisation the the game Don't like it but want to still play COD? Play a COD online that was made before COD4 like COD2 Want something newer? pick up a newer quality online FPS like bad company 2.
IW became obsessed with perks after CoD4, created more and ended up unbalancing the game play. Who really wants to sit in a game where a guy hiding in the corner is rewarded by yet more game unbalancing kill streak rewards like an AC-130 or a nuke..a nuke FFS! yeah that really makes it fun to play having the match ended early. Its not too much to ask for one extra game mode and leave the kiddies to play with their comic book perks and kill streaks.
No "5 hour campaign"? Fail list is fail. The short campaign is one of the biggest reasons CoD MW2 is fail.
Well, I only see a short campaign as a real problem if its all that the game offered But it isn't as well as the campaign you have Spec Ops, and as well as those you have the most popular and addicting online game available on consoles.
MW 2 focussed too much on multiplayer. I really don't play multiplayer. -____- All my friends play is MW 2's multiplayer. It's a paaaaaaain.
harrykid32...it sounds like you fail as an online player, not the game's campaign. Everyone knows that you but CoD for the multiplayer. You saying the game fails because it has a short campaign is laughable. Stop living in the 90's.
This, I agree with. A lot of these shooters need to be like one of these shooters: MAG, Metro 2033, or KZ/Halo. If you are going to emphasize the multiplayer to the point where single player is negligible, make your game like MAG and just throw all your resources at the multiplayer. If your shooter is very story driven, make it like Metro2033. If there's a legitimate story to tell to give reason for multiplayer, make your game like KZ or Halo.
5 hours... including loads times. The amount of player controlled time is more like 4 hours.
http://img265.imageshack.us... I have the platinum for the game, I'm pretty sure I know what I'm talking about. xD
only problem i have with the game is commando and glitchers. can't complain about campers because well.. its a war game.
play KZ2! New maps are AWESOME! BEACH HEAD is WICKED! the gun on top of the encampment near the beach, if you are an engineer and repair it, is soooo satifying, its surreal! Killzone 2 satifies MY fps fix entirely! <on topic> mw2 is a good fps by what I have read,(I wont buy it for my own reasons), but there are alternatives.
Be camper is every multiplayer game issue. Well every one camp I bet he camp too pff.
Camping is too effective and is therefore prevalent. Nothing really new and feels WAY too familiar. Exploits are widespread and rruin matches. I gladly quit for BFBC2 and never looked back. Destructible environments kill camping. Exploits are nowhere to be found. Vehicles make the game fresh.
Ten is not high enough of a number im afraid
Did anyone get a feeling of impatience for Killzone 3 after playing MW2? I did.
I dont get ansy for games very often. But, oh teah! This will be HIGHLY anticipated by moi!
You forgot the worst issue: Crap Online! The game forces you to camp..so I don't see the complaining.. Getting in a match with other people that have a distinct advantage over you is cheap. And I'm not talking about personal experience either.. Thats one thing..but you have to push through hours on hours of cringe inducing pain until you finally "get good." Its a bullcrap attempt at online in my opinion. I sold it after I beat the campaign.. Such a waste..
They only found 10!?!
Is it bad that I thought this was going to be a list of all the glitches?
this article is truth. people who acuse this guy of being crap at the game or complaining are probably the ones spoiling this game. people are playing for their stats and ranks, meaning if some dude is camping with dual 87's, you are gonna do the same. people who you might think are crap at the game are the ones who refuse to resort to the cheap noobish tactics which more and more ppl are resorting to. this game takes no skill, as it wont get you anywhere in a public mw2 lobby. killing a guy with a grenande launcher, instead of using a bullet, is not skill.
Alright I'm sorry but I don't care what perk you have on. Your SMG is not gonna somehow do more damage than my freaking 50 cal sniper rifle. That's my biggest concern with MW2 its so unreal is frustrating. Why is it I shoot you freaking 3 times point blank with a shotty and it doesn't at least knock you down. Yet you shoot me with like a pistol or something twice, one of which shots totally goes to the left of me but still some how counts as a hit on me kills me. Second thing that pisses me off is the map rotation. Honestly I play like all the crappy maps a billion times before I get to a good one.
Why is this not in the Multiplat section?... Anyways, I have always been a critic of this game. The glitches are the worst. I feel for an online game this is just unacceptable. The kids thing no one can fix really. Is there a list of all glitches and proposed fixes? I feel this game is unbalanced, too floatly, noob friendly and I HATE AUTO AIM. Anyways thats just me. I know its all some people talk about...
people saying "blah blah campers arent bad, or stop crying about campers" <your probably campers.. i hate campers.. why should i run around getting a high killstreak to go round a corner where a guys lying down picking off anyone coming round or into where he is -_- also the campers, say your playing gametypes like search and destroy..where you get one chance per round only to die by a guy hiding with a heartbeat sensor.. or when your own team becomes full with campers and you use your skill to take out some guys and plant the bomb.. while they sit in a spot near the back of the map with there heartbeat sensor or noobtube ready gun and dont go to defend the bomb where your taking on multiple guys causing you to lose.. thats why i hate them, but its totally down to the killstreak rewards. but my main issue is that the game itself is too 'noob-friendly'.. i mean the previous games you had to learn how to play and develop abit of skill to do pretty well in games, in mw2 everything is handed to you on a plate with some perks that were clearly not thought out. i mean why earn 3 kills for a uav when you can use heartbeat sensor.. why go for chopper gunner when you can get a carepackage.. yeah lets give them a perk that lets them run double the speed 'lightweight' so that in game modes like s&d they can be in the enemies spawn within 10seconds..and can end the game in 30 seconds or lets give them a extra distance melee perk which teleports them to the enemie/through the enemie/ past the enemie/through bullets and give em a kill lol.. or lets give them oneman army so they can change class.. c'mon guys i doubt anyones gonna realise you can just make two classes and have unlimited noobtubes lol basically it has lots of issues.. maybe due to activision rushing infinity ward, or no beta.. either way its ruining the franchise
10) Immature community full of underage kids Doesnt really bother me as i've grown used to it in the previous call of duty games, doesnt change the fact there annoying though! @ least you can mute in the lobby this time! 9) No vehicles Doesnt bother me either, cod4 never had them so i'm not fussed that mw2 doesnt have them, besides its a fps, i dont like vehicles in fps, there annoying and it takes no skill. 8) Lack of decent perks Kinda agree with this, i mean alot of the perks are similar to the ones in cod4 but ones like commando...who ever implemented that should die, oh and lightweight too, it completely ruins the game, i mean i know cod has never been ultra realistic but when someone stabs you from 15 foot away, your like hey how did they get a jetpack on there back?!!! 7) Glitches plaguing the game Yes, countless ones, The blame rests squarely on IW's shoulders, dont beta test a game then expect to be critisised, they were basically arrogant and came with a..."no game beats ours" mentality. KZ2 says hello 6) Boosters Never experienced this in cod4 and now i experience it numerous times a day on mw2, once again its IW's fault with there stupid logic behind a respawn & killstreak system 5) Lag/game ending To be honest games ended more on COD4 than MW2 but i think the lag is actually worse on MW2, on cod4 i would have 3 bars and it would run very smoothly, on MW2 i can have 4 and it still lags, dont know how but it does, anyone care to explain? 4) Poorly designed maps 100% agree, how do you go from maps like crash, overgrown, strikedown, vacant! etc to estate, derail and afghan. Personally there isnt one good map when it comes to search and destroy, no wonder they brought back crash and overgrown in the stimulus pack lol, idiots. 3) No party chat N/A. I have a PS3. 2) Noob weapons Yep, completely agree again. Worst weapons ever, seriously akimbo shottys in a cod game? just no n icant be bothered ranting cos nearly every weapon is just wrong. 1) Campers There were campers on COD4 & [email protected] so its not something i'm suprised about but there is definatly more, thanks to more camping spots and the introduction of stupid killstreaks. ................ Dont get me wrong i think the game is addictive to a certain extent, although not as much as cod4, not even close. But when i lost on cod4 or even [email protected] i could accept that but on mw2 its always a nuke, a predator missle, a ac130, an idiot camping camping on the stairs on skidrow with dual shotguns, getting stabbed across the map. N i dont suck, thats so lame you guys say that cos people have issues with a game, get real, infact my kdr and win/loss ratio is higher than it was on cod4, yet its still not as enjoyable. think i'm lying, add me: nvussmokey
