Modern Warfare 2: embarrassing mistakes in gamescom presentation?

A visitor of gamescom 2009 just recorded a video, which shows some scenes from a Modern Warfare 2 presentation. Strange: The protagonist of the game dies. But not by a bullet hail of enemy troops, but in a crash with the snowmobile. After that incident the demonstrator aborted the presentation.

Crash or not that is one impressive looking title. The Snowmobile chase was intense! Hopefully they'll have any bugs worked out by release.

"Crash or not that is one impressive looking title."

For a Wii title.

For a next gen game the graphics are absolutely embarrassing.

fusionboxer3562d ago (Edited 3562d ago )

In every presentation of this snowy area infinity ward has never shown anything past the snow mobile section. It's no bug, glitch, embarrassing mistake during their presentation or whatever. The presenter probably just wanted to show you can crash on the snow mobile and ended it there.

It just seems like their (IW's) way of saying "Look your controlling this thing and it's not just another shooter on rails like in past vehicle sections of our games".

Also what's up with all the recent hate on Modern Warfare 2? Infinity Ward has yet to fail to deliver an engaging "short, but sweet" experience through it's scripted events, multiplayer and responsive game play so why?

Sure it's no uncharted 2 (omg uncharted), but it's still a title to look forward to along with the rest of this years amazing line up.

shingo3562d ago (Edited 3561d ago )

he didn't crash or anything, that's how the demo build ends.

what a lame news story. i had to watch the whole vid to see the part they're claiming, but it isn't there.

why on earth is this story approved?

ShabzS3561d ago (Edited 3561d ago )

and if you think this game looks like a wii game then you need to get your eyes checked... iw knows their sh*t...

other wise show me an fps running on 60 frames with the ammount of action on screen while looking that good... otherwise gtfo

I don't believe that was a bug.

However, after the AI bugs in COD4 I wouldn't have been surprised had it been one. If there is one thing that IW can't do it is AI. COD4 was one of the most tightly scripted, linear games ever. Death by Developer in the Bog because you thought creatively is the very mark of how narrow that game runs.

When you have a story to tell, you automatically induce a certain amount of formula or linearity to a game. However you can build in areas of free roam encounters. IW isn't capable of engineering pockets in a game where you are able to have mini sandbox confrontations with AI. There is hope because Naughty Dog does this better than anyone.

AnttiApina3561d ago

The OP implified that the action was impressive.
Go back to play your top notch graphicfests.

The gameplay and the feeling is the most important aspect.
Good graphics are just a way to enhance them.

D4RkNIKON3561d ago (Edited 3561d ago )

Yeah I totally agree, this game will have multiplayer gameplay the likes of which will blow our minds with awesomeness, but after playing killzone 2 religiously for so long, the graphics in MW2 suck something awful.

ShabzS3561d ago (Edited 3561d ago )

respect to gg and killzone 2 ... but.. uhh.. 60 frames per second ?

Blackfrican3561d ago

Hmm, a soldier shooting his pistol sideways... Might as well put KFC sponsors on his snowmobile, bling him the hell out, and have 50 cent throwing out one liners.

foxtheory3561d ago

It may not be 60fps, but it looks just as smooth as MW2 and has the same amount of action. I'm not trying to say one is better than the other, but KZ2 has lots of action on the screen and looks good at the same time.

beavis4play3561d ago (Edited 3561d ago )

1. my appreciation of KZ2 just went to a much higher level.
2. it didn't look like a glitch in the presentation. it just looked like what could happen if snowmobiles were going that fast and were that close together.
3. infinity ward has got to be kidding with this, aren't they? voice acting that is beyond terrible and enviroments that look awful. plus, don't even get me started on the gameplay of the anyone could hit ANY target while riding on those snowmobiles. (considering the speed and roughness of the terrain). lol

edit: at're kidding right? and i guess ME2 will be substandard under your 60fps theory, right? because i wouldn't agree there either....ME2 looks to be an incredible game.

DonCorneo3561d ago (Edited 3561d ago )

you can actually beat the game without killing anybody.. just keep on running to the next trigger point and let your immortal teammates do all the shooting.. LMAO!!!!

multi is a actually good, though. this is the only game where i was was able to kill the same guy/gal 5 times in a row in about 15 seconds.. or getting killed twice by the same airstrike.. thanks to the broken spawning points..

LazyDevs3561d ago (Edited 3561d ago )

It doesn't matter to all the fanboys posting Killzone 2 this and that. No reason for MW2 to beat Killzone 2 when Killzone 2 is not as even as good as MW1 gameplay wise. The one and only Killzone 2 has going for it period is the so called graphics.

Guy above you might let your squad do that on easy or normal but it won't happen at higher settings.

Domenikos3561d ago (Edited 3561d ago )

Everyone will get this game (including me) for some multiplayer pandemonium...

cant wait for MW2

krouse933561d ago

Actually I watched it twice and he crashes into a team mate i think or another dude on a snowmobile and he flies up into the air and dies thats not how it is supposed to end.

umair_s513561d ago

What's with the MW2 hate? I say hate activision not IW.

morganfell3561d ago

MW2 is the club Activision will employ to bludgeon gamers. Kids too dumb to realize will keep walking into swing range. You either send a strong message to them or you just bend over. Take your pick.

jwatt3561d ago

The reason why there is so much hate towards Modern Warfare 2 is because it's very popular and it's not exlusive to the ps3. When something becomes the top dog, people want to see it go down, It's like that with everything. COD 4 is one of the best games I've played this generation. If you don't like it that's ok but alot of people are going to buy it becuase it will be one of the top shooters this year weather it's ps3 exclusive or not.

Hobadoon3561d ago (Edited 3561d ago )

"For a next gen game the graphics are absolutely embarrassing. "

Absolutely embarrassing?? That just shows you how F'ing stupid some people are on this site. I still say about 15% of this sites members are actual gamers. The other 85% are PMSing fanboys.


cyborg69713561d ago

What the phuck does the ps3 have to do with anythind d!ckhead. The reason for the hate is because my grandma can get an airstrike. It's a twitchy heavy aim assist not talent fps that any1 can pick up and play. Mag and operation flashpoint look better than the same old cod MP. Maybe it's because I've played all of em. But the ps3 has nothing to do with the hate phuckturd.

beavis4play3561d ago

i don't base my opinion of the game (mw2) on previous infinity ward COD offerings. it's also not based on the perceived popularity of the games. it's based on the info presented (like this trailer) by different sites.
what i've seen on this footage (and other trailers) does NOT impress me at all. i'm sure those who have bought into the COD series will "eat this up" without question. for those who enjoy it.......good for them. but i'm not buying a game just because others love it.
as for not liking it because it's not a ps3 exclusive.....i can only speak for myself. and i DON'T buy (or prefer) games solely based on if they are exclusive or not. i didn't buy infamous. i didn't buy LBP even though i LOVE animated games. (i played it in walmart and thought it handled kind of "wonky") i may not buy FF13vs if i don't see enough to like. i did buy bioshock; looking forward to mafia 2 (both are multi-plats; and would buy ME2 (the story looks kick ass) and L4D1/2 (zombie killing like what should have been in RE5) if they came to ps3.........these are NOT ps3 exclusives and in fact are currently 360 exclusives.

get over yourself. i don't pretend that everyone has to like (or dislike) what i like/dislike. so don't make false assumptions about others opinions just because they aren't in line with what you believe.

II Necroplasm II3561d ago

You people are stupid to downplay those graphics. We all know if it wasn't an Activision game, you all would be like "oh hell yeah!!!"

I noticed the only people really downplaying MW2 is certain PS3 fanboys,go figure...

This article didn't mean anything anyways.

Hobadoon3561d ago (Edited 3561d ago )

Most PS3 fanboys are downplaying the graphics. For some reason graphics mean everything now to those douchebags that only own Sony's console and gameplay always takes a cold 2nd... Hell, sometimes even 3rd...

Like I said, N4G contains about 15% gamers. The other 85% are PMSing Fanboys. I would hate my life if I were in that 85%... And I think most of them do - hence why they come here to either:

a.) Bytch
b.) Bash
c.) Complain
d.) Moan
e.) Praise only their respective consoles
f.) All of the above

Unfortunately, option F is the most seen.

beavis4play3561d ago (Edited 3561d ago )

you two come off as two of the biggest whiners /moaners/complainers on the thread. why don't you quit complaining about others and stay ON TOPIC? everyone has a right to voice their opinion on the game.

morganfell3561d ago

Absurd jwatt, absolutely absurd. COD4 is more of a threat to HALO3 than it is to PS3 gamers. The PS3 doesn't have a weekly blog showing the competition for number 1 game on PSN. If anything 360 gamers can't stand the gut blow that a Multiplat game is more popular than HALO3.

What 360 gamers love is the fact that a popular game is Multiplat and the PS3 version gets shortchanged on Bluray because of DVD9 limitations.

Gobot3561d ago

"Most PS3 fanboys are downplaying the graphics."

It's Call Of Duty, you know the gameplay is going to be good, you'd think the graphics would look better...

Hobadoon3561d ago (Edited 3561d ago )

Yeah... From all of our 3 combined comments out of 25... lol Thanks for that, now I really do understand the meaning of Irony haha.

I'll do you a favor and step out of this ignorant debate so you all can get back to hearing yourselves complain.

Dumb... Dumb... Asses...

Bob Loblaw3561d ago (Edited 3561d ago )

"I noticed the only people really downplaying MW2 is certain PS3 fanboys,go figure..."

That's because us PS3 owners have played LBP, KZ2, MGS4 and other games that look way, WAY better than CoD4 and MW2. Some of LBP's textures and objects literally look REAL, as does KZ2's Magnum, and a lot of stuff in MGS4 is photo-realistic. Anyone who's not solely a 360 fanboy will tell you that those 3 games look better. Sure LBP isn't an FPS and MGS4 is technically a TPS but you're talking strictly graphics so those games are relevant. I own 360 and PS3 and I even think Gears 2 looks better the CoD4 and MW2.

Not to mention GT5 literally looks REAL!

So I don't get called out for being a liar and a biased PS3 fanboy, here's proof that I'm a multi-console owner:
GamerTag: CALVAD0S (with a zero)

Send me a message and I'll reply to show you that I do indeed own both consoles. I play my 360 more ATM and my 360 profile shows that I've had XBL Gold for over a year but I have way more Trophies on PSN (almost 1,000 trophies including 12 Platinums). See, I love both consoles equally ;)

I'm going back to hitting 10th prestige on WaW so I can have all the WaW achievements on 360. I have all other WaW achievements on 360 except the 2 for prestige'ing. I have all the Trophies for WaW on PS3 but I want to get them on 360 too XD

beavis4play3561d ago

25 comments of people seeing what is presented (in the trailer) and responding is not's just each individuals critique of what's been seen.

what you and necro have done is just complaining/whining at others (not to mention name-calling.....very childish)for voicing their opinion. and, in the process, YOU AND NECRO have become the "complainers" that you were talking about in you're respective posts.

yea.........the irony went waaaaaaaaaay over your head.

they will get it fixed by the time it comes out

peeps3561d ago

get what fixed? driving into a snow mobile at that speed probably would kill you lol

LazyDevs3561d ago

To complete #$%@'s such as above. Do we really need to start nitpicking on every game about it not being realistic and this can't been done in real life? I mean really a post apocalyptic world with guys that have red lights for eyes.

Buttons3561d ago

Mr. Kojima would like to disagree...

Raf1k13561d ago

Didn't Kojima himself say he didn't think MGS4 was what he wanted it to be?

LazyDevs3561d ago

Again he said game not cut scenes.

Daz3562d ago

Looks like he hit someone ;p i didnt see no bug

NaiNaiNai3562d ago (Edited 3562d ago )

what so bad about it, He was going like 80MPH on a snowmobile and smacked into another one, if you don't die well, your chuck norris.

*wow beaver. only you and a select few would start a stupid console war over this, get a life bud, or a girlfriend, either or both.

Ninver3562d ago

LOL funny thing is he was playing it on the 3fixMe.

Oh and Mr. Norris doesn't waste his time on a 3fixMe. He is too classy for that turd.

JonnyBadfinger3562d ago (Edited 3562d ago )

Whats your point Beaver??

Is it that all mulitplats are shown on the 360 because its the developers platform of choice, or is it that only on the 360 that a awesome death like that is plausible. I would be stoked if this was in the final game.

But being able to land at HUGE jump like that would be far better than dieing. But i would wouldnt be upset if that happened to me during game. there are worse ways to die.
