that what happens when you don't have an open beta of the MP mode.

IW is really on a roll!

WildArmed3720d ago

lol.
most games come out with some issues now.
What happened to polished games? o_O

MGRogue20173720d ago

Problems??

I haven't come across any & I've completed the game, 7 hours altogether.

Multiplayer seems fine too.

Lionsguard3720d ago

Yes, because it's not happening to you, it's not happening to no one else. So far I haven't been able to invite any of my friends and it's frozen on me once. Nothing too serious but yea, let me invite my friends damnit.

hakis863720d ago

Lol, that picture is going to hurt someones feelings :P

@skv007: UC2 was actually very polished IMO

nycredude3720d ago (Edited 3720d ago )

Spent 4 hours playing the sp and I am at DC now. With the exception of several levels the game almost put me to sleep. I don't know what it is but the game is bland and the graphics OMFG IGN's 10 for graphics is without a doubt the most overated BS I've ever seen. Only 2 hours in before and I was already thinking I will trade this in when I am done with sp. I loved the first MW and IMO it's the better of the two. It could be that it was something fresh when it release 2 years ago because MW2 just feels so played out. It is IMO without a doubt completely overhyped and doesn't deserve 9.5 to 10. I would say between 8.5-9.

Imagine my surprised when I tried multiplayer to find out it wasn't working and frozed on me while looking for players!

I am officially spoiled by Sony exclusives. This game can't hold a candle to Killzone 2 or Uncharted 2, heck both Rachet games on the Ps3 is more fun than this. Crap. Trading in after sp for Assassin's Creed and GOW collection.

Sorry for sounding so negative but I bought into the hype and I am really disappointed. Too much brauns and not enough brains. This game is nothing but a testosterone fest geared towards younger players.

This will be the last COD game I ever buy.

Edit: This game is severely overated. The tech is last gen low res crap, story is complete crap, clipping, multiplayer is broke, so much of the same shiat that has been done 5 times before in just this franchise and yet all the reviews are 9.5 to 10 across the board!? WTF happened to gaming reviews?

nix3720d ago (Edited 3720d ago )

first they make you pay for the gimped game, then show promises of updating it with a firmware.

this is here to stay, guys. sadly, this is here to stay.

can we collectively do something about all this?

@nycredude:

you know.. all the "over-rated" rating is a good thing. people will soon stop believing the sites who's reviewing. i stopped believing in IGN when they reviewed Heavenly Sword and GTA IV. one was under-rated and the other one was over-rated.

it's good for the industry. hopefully, people will wake up one day.

and yeah.. 10/10 for graphics was the killer!

WildArmed3720d ago

I havnt played U2 yet (I'm working on it!), but judging by how polished UDF was, i can expect the same calibur on it.

MGS4 was a really polished game too.
I guess with multiplayer involved something is going to screw up

TheReaper423720d ago

i didn't get to play uncharted 2 yet. Been busy testing out the MAG beta.. can't put the controller down..

Apocwhen3720d ago

"first they make you pay for the gimped game, then show promises of updating it with a firmware.

Stop talking FUD. They've already pushed out a patch to fix the trophy issues and say till will have another on friday for party invite issues.

nix3720d ago

Orange Box says "hi".

i was talking in general terms - the next gen industry. not MW2 in specific.

Syronicus3720d ago

If you think it is fine then you have not tried to invite your buddies into a lobby and then start a game. Host migration is a bit off and the invite process is buggy. I trust they will fix it byu friday but until then, even in MP the best way to play is solo.

sikbeta3720d ago

Why this article don't surprised me....

r3xmund13720d ago

Finished SP (veteran) 7.5 hours, levelled up to 29 MP All achievements & unlockables FINE!

This story is flamebait, traffic hungry trash!

nycredude3719d ago

Reaper and Sky. If you haven't bought MW2 yet, save your money and buy Uncharted 2 instead. It's by far the superior game and experience and is an example of how to develop a game for the fans, not the money.

Alcon3719d ago (Edited 3719d ago )

I've got some problems.
I played yesterday during the night (on the PS3) for about 2h online without a problem. I started to play again today, but after some time, while I was in the lobby I couldn't do anything anymore (as if it froze). So I quit the game and restart it but now when I try to get online I'm stuck at the Online Status, so now I can't play MP.
Hope they fix this sh*t soon.

edit: BTW: since the first patch (1.01) I have problems syncing my trophies. Never had a problem before this patch. I don't even know why they needed to release this patch, because it's clearly a broken one

Beast_Master3719d ago

I couldn't connect with any friends, but the trophies seemed to work fine. I think I agree with everyone else this version is missing something, just feels bland. When looking back on this series I think more people will remember the original MW more fondly than this iteration. I even had a few guys on my friends list that where playing MW2, and by the end of the night where back to MW1.

frostypants3719d ago (Edited 3719d ago )

I find it interesting that PC fanboys like to complain about their games getting "console-ized". Releasing a game with this many bugs and patching it later used to be restricted to the PC world. In this sense, console gaming is getting PC-ized. This is unacceptable. Having an HD and internet is great for allowing improvements to a game, but not when it's used as an excuse to sell unfinished products. The higher level of QA for console games was one big reason I bought one to go with my PC in the first place. This sucks.

How did IW manage to release such a buggy version of what is essentially an update of an older game? Having any MP issues at this point is ridiculous.

Greywulf3719d ago (Edited 3719d ago )

They made Modern Warfare, and I'm pretty sure they understand how consoles work. They didn't upgrade the engine, so whats the excuse?

No, this is what happens when you have a company that knows people will buy it no matter what.

But hey, everyone is so excited that MW2 will sell more than tranformers! So.. thats better than having a good game. There is a reason people boycotted this game & Activisions actions towards gaming. At a time where everyone is hurting financially, they raise the price of their game at the same time as removing features for the original supporter of the title. Now the game is more buggy and less polished than the first..

BUT man is that airport scene sweet!- right?

Doctor Phil3719d ago

Im sure I would love this game, if I didn't have KZ2.

When playing MW2 i feel like a balloon with a gun, drifting around in plastic-land killing Kent-dolls. But it is kind of fun in it's own way.

mikepmcc3719d ago

All lies, the game is not "plagued" with issues, after completing the campaign and level 10 on multiplayer. It still baffles me why people are hating on this game so much, it's fantastic.

Either you're lying or you haven't updated your trophies.

MRMagoo1233719d ago

why would he have to be lying i have completed single player and i have no trophies i only just got the ability to collect them today via the 1.2 patch so i have to go all the way thru veteran again to get them.

on topic i think the mp is fine untill i got the newest patch now when i go to mp it stays on connecting to matchmaker server and doesnt go anywhere i am hoping its just IW making new servers for the amount of ppl playing the game i got to lvl 30 by the end of last nights session and i wanna carry on today sometime.The only problem i have had besides that is the one i mentioned above and that was not having trophies they wherent even in the trophies section it said the game had no trophies till the new patch today.

STONEY43719d ago

Yeah, I've heard about the trophy issue, so ignore the last comment.

swiftshot933720d ago

If they can fix trophies by Friday then that'll be cool. They should be on friend invites too.
Also we need a patch to get rid of the dumb kool-aid crap off the screen when you get hit. The old system was much better.

mikepmcc3719d ago

lol, it looks like someone threw a jar of jam in your face. I got used to it though.

T3L3PROOF3719d ago

I also think the Blood on your screen is annoying, it gets very distracting and it's hard to see where you are going when you are getting shot at.

Also another thing that is annoying is the way we have to invite our friends, now we cant invite multiple friends at once, they are never able to connect, and it over floods your INBOX. Not to mention. I think I.W. messed up on the online on this one, hopefully they will fix it though.

MRMagoo1233719d ago

you ever think that the point is the blood on the screen is to make it harder to see where you are going and disorientate you i mean you are getting shot after all thats the whole point.but then again maybe thats too much logic.

i3eyond the Circle3720d ago

No probs for me so far.

Been enjoying every minute.

Sorry for the people experiencing this tho.

4point7BillionLoss3720d ago

a patch consisting of a 74 hour download followed by a 3 day install for the PS3 version coming soon.

xbox patch will download AND install in under a minute and fix exactly 3 buggy glitches.

poor droids

MastaMold3719d ago

Activision & IW don't care much for the consumer, ppl be wise when u spend money

don't buy garbage. The More You Know!

ELite_Ghost3719d ago

4.7 b1tch. U have no fwcking life....

Danusaf3720d ago

I am pissed about these issues.. I got the game for both ps3 and 360 and I am pissed about the problems that both are having.. The multiplayer is loaded with problems on the 360 and there are no trophies loading up on the PS3...

I can understand the multiplayer issues.. But how they hell did the trophies problem not get fixed before the game came out!!! Did they not test it or did they just not give a crap!!????

On top of that there is way to much clipping going on... have u seen the guy sitting on top of the hummer at the beginning of the game.. if u look inside the car, his legs are almost half way through the car!

velcry3720d ago

You buying it for someone else in your household too? Like, you game on the Xbox, and your brother games on the PS3?

Because otherwise I can't think of why anyone would need two copies of this game, on separate platforms.

talltony3720d ago

I got it for 360 and my bro is playing it on ps3 Right now. But maybe he has friends on both consoles and just wants to play with them. Btw I just beat it and it was pretty freakin sick even on veteran.
