Sledgehammer: Forget Battlefield, MW2 is the game to beat

MCVUK - Call of Duty developer Sledgehammer Games says its big adversary is Modern Warfare 2, not Battlefield.

Studio head Glen Schofield has played down Modern Warfare 3’s rivalry with EA’s Battlefield 3, insisting his main focus is to live up to the 2009 FPS predecessor.

Do not insult all of the ps3 fans for his "redundancy". He is just a troll.

@ Admiral Snake,

Uncharted 3 is god, now get down on your knees and pray.

@ Bereaver,

Sell your PS3.

Did you (edit anyone) read the article or just the flamebait title. The article is quite reasonable. Its about the living up to their fans and so need to beat MW2.

Baka-akaB2923d ago (Edited 2923d ago )

Still come on ... what reaction do you expect ? MW2 was successful but horrible in most aspects , how do you expect anything else but mockery around here with such title .


Scratch that .They do mention it being a benchmark , so basically the same as the title but expendable .

They do deserves the rolled eyes and mockery then

Daoshai2923d ago

I enjoyed MW2 multiplayer, as do millions of others.

gamingdroid2923d ago

I'm actually thankful they aren't setting BF3 as the benchmark. I don't want BF3, I want MW when I buy MW3.

If I wanted BF, I would have bought BF3!

After the beta, I will most definitely pass on it.

MrGunny942924d ago

Any game can beat MW2... any.... i had more fun playing DOOM 1 then this

InNomeDiDio2923d ago

than and then is not easy for people who don't speak English that much. I made that mistake very often when I was in school years ago.

*who doesn't

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

As long as ppl can understand each others message ... job well done ... other than that nobody's here to write hamlet ... deal with it and stop bein grammar nazi.

Say that to the other 11.9 million they will simple ignore you and keep playing MW2

BALLARD322924d ago (Edited 2924d ago )

lol MW2. What a horrible game. They sure aren't setting their standards very high are they?

EmperorDalek2923d ago (Edited 2923d ago )

The only people that think MW2 was a horrible game are Battlefield fanboys. Spec Ops in MW2 was possibly the best co-op this gen (IMO), the Campaign was short, but varied and fun (BC2's SP was garbage in comparision) and while BC2 had better MP, MW2's was still good.

garenteed that you were about to say "The hackers and glitches made it crap". After over 30 hours of gameplay, I found no glitches or hackers (PS3 version).

So tell me, how was MW2 "terrible"?

Baka-akaB2923d ago

MW2 was mocked for various reasons before bf3 was even hinted .

And the numerous glitches you didnt find have been patched to hell over the years

ZombieAssassin2923d ago

When I bought Mw2 I hated BF games since Bad Company was such a let down and I sold Mw2 after less than a month of having it.

It's not just BF fanboys, most people I know who are hardcore CoD fanboys thought Mw2 was one of the worst especially map design wise.

gamingdroid2923d ago

I insanely enjoyed CoD:MW2. Don't know what the hate is about, but there seems to be trend. Get popular and a small niche, but very loud group will start to dislike it.

Happened to basically Gears of War, Halo, Mass Effect and of course CoD.

The only one I haven't heard that from is Uncharted... that game is revered like the second coming of Christ.

qzp2923d ago

The only game thats as shitty as mw2 is bc2. I had more fun with cod4 than any bf and i'd be the first one to say mw2 is garbage and a let down. There goes your "fan boy" theory.

EmperorDalek2923d ago

"And the numerous glitches you didnt find have been patched to hell over the years"
I started playing it in 2009, so I didn't get most of those patches.

I agree that some of the maps were bad, but some of them were good. But even if you didn't like the MP, Spec Ops was great.

Why did you hate it? none of the haters have answered my question.

BALLARD322923d ago

Just because someone doesn't like CoD makes them a Battlefield fanboy? If you're going off my pic, that means nothing.
To answer your question, compare CoD4 to MW2. Simplicity is what mad CoD4 so great. MW2 was a mess out of the box. You had glitches galore(all games have them but this was particularly bad), horrible balance, and game breaking features i.e. perks, killstreaks, etc.. And like you said, the hackers did also ruin it and thats a fact. Horrible security in the game. So please, keep calling anyone who likes quality a battlefield fanboy.
