Modern No-fare: 5 reasons NOT to get Modern Warfare 2

Call of Duty 4 was considered, by most, to be a great game.  The single player campaign was interesting, the multiplayer was fun, and it played great.

Activision is releasing it's newest Modern Warfare game, starting tomorrow in the US.  But plenty of controversy has broken out on Activision and their new game.  Especially surrounding Bobby Kotick, the CEO, president, and board member for Activision Blizzard.  Some journalists have gone as far as calling him the Satan of Gaming.  Their new game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is receiving various oppositions, and perhaps in good reason.

There are plenty of reasons not to even join this new Warfare.

  1. The PC version is a complete downgrade - More expensive, only 18 players in matches compared to up to 64 in COD4, Hackers won't be kicked/banned instantly and......heck, check it out for yourself: The ways COD:MW2 is inferior to COD4 on PC
  2. You have to access Steam (On PC) in order to play online - A blatant exploitation to get people on a third party site.
  3. The World at War Effect - World at War coasted off the success of COD4, and now Modern Warfare 2 is following.  It's even copying parts from COD4 like World at War did, only slightly changing the situation in which the event takes place (Example: World at War's slow motion kill ending).  Example: Modern Warfare Reuses COD4's Training Scene
  4. Disturbing scenes - You either play scenes in which you terrorize and kill citizens, or skip them and loose part of the experience and story.  Lose, lose situation.  Watch at own risk: disturbing scene
  5. They don't care - As online petitions bust 200K in some situations for dedicated servers, Activision ultimately doesn't respond.  As long as they're getting paid, they don't care what their customers think.  Just wait and see how that plays out as they make changes and/or lack of changes to the online and such.
Are you really prepared to spend $60 on THIS game created by THESE people?

Please actually read the blog before commenting. I know most of you are already making up your minds when you read the title. I bring up some very valid points on why IW/Activision don't deserve your hard earned cash on this game, but it's not like I can stop you. Now quit being so hateful towards a human being because it upsets you that they are pointing out some problems with your favorite game series.

Also:
#6: The tech has gone unaltered - Console versions are stuck in native sub-HD resolution like they have been since COD2. While other games have advanced, MW2 has not. IW hasn't bothered to fix this, as we enter the 4th year of the 7th generation of console gaming.

COD4 never had 64 players online. The first two reason are irrelevant to console gamers. The World at War Effect? That's stretching it if you ask me. The explanation is stupid not even a reason. Disturbing scenes? You kill civilians in GTA IV and many other games, grow up, it's a game. You must be a Jack Thompson fan. The last reason, again affects PC gamers. Yeah, this blog sucks.

"COD4 never had 64 players online"
PC version.

"The first two reason are irrelevant to console gamers"
The console community should care about their gaming brethren on the PC.

"The World at War Effect? That's stretching it if you ask me. The explanation is stupid not even a reason"
How is the game recycling scenes with slightly changed settings NOT a reason?

"You kill civilians in GTA IV and many other games"
How many games have missions in which your objective is to kill unarmed civilians?

"You must be a Jack Thompson fan"
Because I find a required (Or skippable with the loss of story and gametime) fps scene where you terrorize an airport to be disturbing? Okay....

Bnet3432448d ago

COD4 PC is 32 players dude, NOT 64.

The console community should care about the pc version? Uhh no. It doesn't affect them. Just like the PC community didn't care about the 360 community in L4D. That's just a stupid reason, you're telling people what to think.

"How is the game recycling scenes with slightly changed settings NOT a reason?"
I haven't played the game yet so I can't comment but alot of games recycle scenes. Halo 1, Assassin's Creed, Killzone 2. This also doesn't affect multiplayer.

"How many games have missions in which your objective is to kill unarmed civilians?"

ITS. A. GAME. Get a grip. STOP GRASPING FOR STRAWS. Alot of games, GTA IV including one of them.

"Because I find a required (Or skippable with the loss of story and gametime) fps scene where you terrorize an airport to be disturbing? Okay...."

Yes because you sound just like him. ITS A GAME. Can you read? ITS A GAME. lol it's a disturbing scene. geez.

I'm done arguing. I'm not going to come back here to go back and forth. Your reasons are dumb, this game will be good and fun.

Here's one of your comments:

"LOL @ the bots
I suppose it's easier to downplay the load of PS3 exclusives than to list Xbox 360 exclusives."

You're a fanboy, I hate fanboys, good day. Your blog sucks.

Kigmal I have DEFINITELY played 50+ player matches on CoD4. It wouldn't be surprising to hear that it supports up to 64.

I agree that the console community shouldn't really care... BUT they should care about being raped up the arse with inferior games every time with crappy matchmaking. Console gamers just take what they're given - the PC version of the game has the same stuff but the PC community didn't stand for it, because they know a game should support dedicated servers.

RamoUP2448d ago

wow those are you're reasons man they aren't good at all..HATER!

superfedya2448d ago

You're absolutely right! MW2 is a terrorist simulator!

HolyOrangeCows2448d ago

...That's not really what I'm saying...

thorstein2445d ago

I take it this is sarcasm (on both your parts.) Console version rocks and IW was quick to fix any launch problems within hours!!, I can see why I wouldn't want the PC version though.

TheBand1t2448d ago

My 60 bucks will be going to Bad Company 2. At least the PC community isn't getting a huge shaft with that one.
