So MW 2 will be more like special forces missions only? I loved that first mission, in COD 4 but it was too scripted/limited.

MW 1 was already special forces only. The SAS and Marine Force Recon are both real-world special operations forces (although admittedly, there wasn't a whole lot of actual recon in the blazing gunbattles of the John Wayne, i mean Marines, portion of the campaign).

I can only hope you get to play as Spetsnaz. if the trailer is any indication it could be really cool =D

@ Match.

I can only hope and pray that with a 'New direction" Maybe we'll get to see the otherside of war. I mean I was deployed and saw some crazy things and the truth is it's never "good vs bad" it's opposing ideals. If they can harness that.... it will be even better then COD4 I feel. But either way I'll still be happy =D Here's hoping

Sadly, the trailer suggests that IW probably intends to once again villanize the "evil Russians" as they did in Modern Warfare 1.

But there's always multiplayer =D

I think the last level on the plane where you rescue the VIP will be more like the levels in MW2. More tactical and less all out warfare.

They didn't villainize the Russians... It was a group of extremists... The Russians themselves didn't do anything.

If you're going to say they villainized the Russians, mine as well say the same thing for the islamic extremists you fought.

just CoD4 with a new story. I doubt it will be leap and bound better than CoD4. I might be wrong! after KZ2, it's really hard to be impressed by anthing else!

Lack of split-screen hurt the value. I LOVE that game, still play it, but since COD5 was packing split-screen, MW2 best have it. (same engine).

chaosatom3785d ago

I would like to have this option in more games.

Resistance 1 had it in campaign and R2 had it online, but a combination would be truly amazing.

N4Sony3785d ago

Not just competitive.

Thanks @ above for specifying that for me! My bad team!

2FootYard3786d ago

My copy of Call of Duty 4 had split-screen.

chaosatom3785d ago

that was offline and off-campaign tho.

N4Sony3785d ago

Sorry, I should have specified. I meant co-op campaign

matchgrade3786d ago (Edited 3786d ago )

I wish people would seriously stop overanalyzing the name change. IW just wanted to streamline the title so that it would be a title and a number (Modern Warfare 2) instead of a title, subtitle, and then a number (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2). It's a trivial adjustment, and I think people would stop treating it like a divine signal from the FPS gods only decipherable by those bored enough to figure it out.

Amen... All this game needs to be perfect and make KZ2 look average is Chuck Norris
