Before you start reading I would just like to state that this is a review of the single player campaign and it will be spoiler free, so you can read on with confidence that your experience of the game will not be ruined. (Posted by Asim Tanvir)
Its about f**king time.
Has anyone like me already made full preparations for a Modern Warfare 2-intensive day and already called in sick for next tuesday and cut off all ties with siblings?
I'm sure MW2 is good, no, spectacular! It's multiplayer will be the real award winner, but when it comes to GOTY, single player usually wins out, and I'm afraid MW2 is no Uncharted 2 in that category. Those 2 games represent the very best the industry has to offer. Best multiplayer (ever) award goes to: Modern Warfare 2 But in the end, GOTY goes to: Uncharted 2
Its like a week away from release, aren't Activision confident about this game or something? The embargo must be up soon, but so is the games release date, guess they have no belief in the game then haha Can't wait for the game though lol PSN ID: Sitris
Well we already know its AAA, still I also just want to read on HOW awesome it is. Cant wait for this and AC2.
expect this review to be taken down momentarily
Yeah, i have had mine preordered for many months so i am certain it will be good haha i only preordered games i know will be good, CoDMW2 is definately one of those titles, still would like more facts via reviews on how good the story is. I personal thought the firsts story was one of the stronger features :) PSN ID: Sitris
I'm still wondering where are the reviews.. IGN? Gamespot? Eurogamer? 1UP? OPM? OXM ?
Most of the Dragon Age reviews didn't drop until yesterday (3rd) on the games release, I'm sure we'll see most MW2 reviews by the bigger sites sometime later this week. My guess would be Thursday/Friday before the weekend.
Where are the reviews? The publisher has specified an embargo of when the reviews can be released. The first offical review will be posted by the highest bidder. Activision always withholds the review scores Prototype, UA2, Gutar Hero 5, and Wolverine,
Activision will buy the reviewers
Opinions are like A**holes, everyone has one and they're full of S**T I for one think it will be great :) PSN ID: Sitris
Oh how original.
I expect IGNorant to give it a 9.5+ and call it the best thing ever since slice bread, the bots will laugh it up and call KZ2 and U2 a flop, even though we have the option to play it as well.
Me and the 10s of millions of gamers that get it and enjoy it will totally regret our desisions of getting if Activision payed a website to review the game lol Your trying to convince me the game will be bad is your choice, but i don't see any hard facts. I see the engine graphically is the same, but there is alot more going on in the game, the co-op adition sounds great, so show definative proof of the game being 'Bad'. PSN ID: Sitris
Oh Im buying the game as well because I didnt bought Modern Warfare so it wont be more of the same for me, but I at least hope the reviews are accurate and are not driven by hype or $$$$
No disrespect guys, opinions are everyones choices, if you don't like it don't get it. MW2 looks great, as i loved the first. It reminds me alot of Halo, the first was great, the second made a few changes and 3 did almost nothing different. But we all know how the game sales and people playing it turned out :) I would imagine MW3 (or whatever it turns out to be) will probably be the same problem as Halo 3, more of the same, but still good haha PSN ID: Sitris
This is what this game is for me
I has a tits and even this gams cannot play with em. LOL THINK ABOUT THAT! If you buy this game then all of a sudden the tiny parrot will sing its last song before swimming into the endless sea of its. How many of it can you has? I say perhaps 10 millions will buy it. But even lol that you know the parrot in here!!!! LOL.
Enough. Jesus, I am so tired of PS3 fanboys. This game is multi-plat, what makes you think ONLY 360 fans will enjoy this game? I know tons of PS3 users just as pumped for this game. You look incredibly insecure to say you never bought the first one and experienced it like others who have, but you believe that this reviewer is full of lies and other reviewers will lie or be influenced to lie. It looks like you're paranoid and scared that this game is going to be outstanding and take the limelight from any other games out or about to be released. I only see PS3 fanboys on this site bashing this game. Jesus Christ; grow up and enjoy the game. This game is going to be epic, don't go into it with fanboy goggles on.
I find it Kind of strange in the last paragraph that the reviewer says "The closest to perfection a FPS can get". If thats the case than wouldn't it get a perfect 10? If an FPS can never achieve "perfection" then why is there even a 10 on the scale?
Well, he does say it isn't really much of a leap from CoD4. So maybe that's why.
he did say "closest to perfection" not "perfect". Hence, the 9/10.
MW2 needs the mojo! For a 10, you must create a unique game, which defines the genre.. Like Half Life 2..
It is supposed to be like the original, but improves the formula. If they wanted something that's a whole new experience IW would have made a new IP.
Can't wait for this game, it will be great :) PSN ID: Sitris
Bob Saget and Steve Ballmer did the whoopie on Brutal Legend and wifes chests.
Well, all I wanted from mw2 is a continuation to one of the best war stories ever told. If this is to be trusted, I'll be satisfied. Not day 1 though, sadly. I'll buy it used in a few weeks. edit: Thanks, I just wish other people will do the same. I really love IW but hate activision. Wish the best minds from IW would quit and go somewhere else. Leave treyach to milk CoD and they make something else.
I admire you for actually having the will to wait to get it used.
I have the prestige edition pre-ordered haha, i just want them to sit in my room (the night vision gogles that is, will use them but only for lols), that and CoD on PSN and the game of course, for Ausy prices it will only be like 50 dollars more :) I was lucky i got it cheaper than full price haha to make things even better, parents are paying as it is a B-Day gift, along with ACiT yay lol PSN ID: Sitris
Im getting it used as well
Maybe if a ton of Americans get it and Brits don't, then Activision won't price hike anymore hopefully. I actually got a good deal on this game off Amazon
whats with all the ps3 fan hate for this game? Got something to do with it being multiplatform?
It's because they are jealous that the majority of multiplatform games look and play better on the 360.
you see, the hate is coming from the PS3 side due to the lack of being able to experience MW2 on the superior service of XBOX LIVE... cue everyone clicking disagree :)
Just LOL @ everyone hating on this game. Other than the pissed off PC fans, the rest of the gaming community has no reason to hate on this sure to be AAA game. I dont care if Activision is full of it, and couldnt give 2 sh!ts if the price is raised in some other country, hell it would still be worth it even with the price raise. You people have no standards do you? How do we prove what is a good game? Sales dont according to you, and now reviews dont? WTF? Oh, well how about the fact that MW2 is only the sequel to what most call is the best FPS this generation, and also that its coming from a developer that hasnt made a game that isnt AAA? "doesnt do anything new, same as CoD4" BLAH BLAH BLAH Trying to find another reason to hate on it. So customizing kill streaks, more perks, more weapons, better graphics, EPIC single player (war in DC will be epic), and brand new to CoD there is co-op in the name of Spec-ops. Not to mention the game ships with more maps than any other FPS. Oh yea, and its a sequel! Some people here just cant handle the fact that its competing with their favorite game, seriously get over yourselves.
There are reasons to at least be skeptical of MW2 based on the way CoD4 played. While I did play the hell out of it, it still had many flaws. Some have been noticeably fixed like host ending game, while other fixes are still up in the air like grenade spamming at the beginning of the match, horribly placed spawn points, hit detection being extremely off when shooting from a distance, and super small maps with only a handful of different routes to take. I'm on the fence about MW2 especially when Bad Company 2 and MAG are on the horizon. I am paying close attention to see how this all plays out.
Anyone on 360 side dissing this game???? no dint think so. Something to do with Egos of people on the other side. Maybe self confidence issues. Dont know but this is gonna be hell of a game and will be played to death on LIVE.
Hit points and spawns naturally get smoothed out as IW enhances and optimize their code. Since they're using the same engine as before things like that get polished pretty early on. As for spamming nades, I'd be surprised if IW didnt do anything about it. People have really made it prevalent that its a problem, we'll see on that one I guess. And the maps are indeed larger. They said they added texture streaming tech and they said in addition to more detail on screen, they can have much, much bigger maps.
The biggest reason I resent mw2 (I loved CoD4 and CoD2) is because they find it okay to charge more for a game. If we support that, we might end up paying $70 for Uncharted 3, Gears of War 3 and CoD7. You could say that it's not that much more than what we pay already but it's the principle behind it all. I could go see a great movie like Up for $15. And I could also see a terrible movie like any stupid comedy out nowadays for the same price. If movie studios had the same mentality as activision, Up would be $20 because it's really good. Why should we pay more because they say it's worth it? I'm putting my morals before my enjoyment and I'm gonna wait to buy it used. edit: "Some people here just cant handle the fact that its competing with their favorite game, seriously get over yourselves." I don't care what it's competing with. It's wrong. People have to learn how not to be so self centered. Your happiness doesn't have to come first. Stand up for what calls to be stood up for.
That's good to hear swift. I will definitely keep a close eye on the rest of the reviews and if they succeed on everything you say then they can add one more to the millions they will sell this year.
you know I really respect that. My problem is that people are transferring that hate for the (possible) reason you listed, onto the game itself. You cant justify that at all. Even if they charged you $100, you cant justify hating on the game itself and ignoring the (in this case very high) merits. Edit: @ above thats good to hear, although with the other games you listed, you wont really be losing out no matter which you choose. I personally feel that you get that "complete package" with MW2. Cinematic single player, crazy multiplayer, and sweet co-op....
1 word: Uncharted 2 and 1 number I guess lol If Uncharted 2 can be $60 so can MW2, Uncharted 2 is probably the best game I've ever played, probably one of the best games ever made. I started the Activision petition, I was VERY against the things they said and the prices be upped. It didn't affect me, but it was still utter crap. I'm still against it and still plan on renting this from Gamefly. I still have Uncharted 2 MP, Infamous, Tekken 6 and Ratchet and Clank, I'm in no hurry for this game.
Gamers Unite. PS3/360/Wii/PC stick up for one another.
@swiftshot93 I agree with you. I do not support IW or activision on this game at all and have been telling all my friends who want to get it, to buy it used in a few weeks, which most of them are doing. I was one of the people very vocal about boycotting this game based on the price increase, I think it's totally unjustified ! having said that, some of the comments from some people about the game being a MW 1.5... or as I remember one comment going on about how the game had " last gen animation " i mean come on... If people want to hate on it, hate it for the right reasons. I really don't get all the hate about it not looking great. I think it looks great and will be just as much fun as the last one. what I hate about it is the way activision have treated us as customers. what I hate is IW and the way they are treating the PC gamers ( whatever excuse they have for the server issue, I am not buying it )... As much as I think MW2 will be a great game, There will be other great games from developers who actually support and appreciate their fans. There will be games from other publishers who appreciate and support their customers. and I would rather support them over IW and activision.
Yeah, I don't like that either. The game itself isn't the problem; it's activision. We all know IW is gonna make a great game. It's just that price increase could be the catalyst that makes all AAA games cost more. Which would suck.
Can't wait for COD7:WAW2:Back in Time1944 ;) On topic.. WIll get both BC2 and MW2 and i'm done. Nothing beats these two games for online play. WHich i do most of the time.
http://forums.bestbuy.com/t... Anyone saw that? Do you think it's fake? Because it is so ridiculous...
IT'S ABOUT THAT TIME...When tons of reviews, from people...NO ONE has ever heard of, will post their thoughts on MW2. I'm sure this will be the same as COD4, which is great....but spare us the reviews from MAXIM magazine, Playboy, and these irrelevant and uncertified people.
OUTSTANDIG! I will deffinantly get this game when it comes out. Infact, I am thinking about getting the 250 GB MW2 bundle....looks awesome! To bad PS3 will not get this bundle.
This guy sounds more like a retarded child than that of a credited reviewer. I would stay clear of his ignorant rants and pathetic site and wait for real reviews, ones that you can trust come to light.
"To use a movie analogy, if Modern Warfare was The Godfather then Modern Warfare 2 is, without a shadow of a doubt, The Godfather II." That's a funny line. It's actually a good analogy and I see what he's getting at but it does sound a little like a 'well duh' moment.
Will be great we all know that go and buy it. i might have said stuff like not a big improvement on MW but that does not mean that people shouldn't buy it. Its on PS3 and 360 and they are the same on both platforms buy it. Who gives a [email protected] about what Activision has done to increase prices, thats just an excuse for some people to blame the game and this game is the same price as any other if you buy it online. i don't like the higher price that why i bought it online. I wanna see more reviews but for some reason Activision doesn't want the free publicity. i don't understand the reason, getting people to change their mind about the game is done through reviews. @ The END - its true that i haven't used XBL but i have never had problems with PSN and the features that XBL has over PSN are not something that i care about so will there still be a difference? and i think your reasoning is not right in your above post. (i didn't press the disagree.) MW looked and played that same on both consoles so why are some of the people above me presuming that 360 will have a better version? (DLC is only delayed a few weeks and shouldn't be a problem). making yourself happy about 360 version looking or playing better without facts is pathetic.
my brother in law has a PS3 and I love it... he has had issues with PSN here lately and in the past but he rarely goes online so it does not matter to him... i know i pay 50 bones a year for XBL (4+ dollars a month but yes it adds up over the life of the system) but I have had nothing but good things to say about it... I am buying this game mainly for multi-player so I would no doubt buy it for the online experience that I have no complaints about... Sure the game will be great for both.. just reading comments like most of these idiots on here say for example-- where does KZ2 have ANY purpose of being brought up... amazing...
