Metacritic had a user score of 1.4 out of 10 for about 3 or 4 days. Next thing you know a score of 5.6 shows up over night. All of the new reviews looked like cut and paste responses you'd find in an email but praising MW2.

Activision has turned into the new EA. Just another publisher I'm never going to touch again.

My question is what makes it a bad game? There are people convinced this is the worst game in the world? I have played games FAR worse than this game and Ive been told those arent even near the bottom of the pile.

Graphics? Well at least its on par with current games, its not distratingly bad, and the art is consistent at least. Ultimately games shouldnt be judged on graphics alone, there are some really top notched graphics games out there and to say none the least suck in every other aspect, then you have games that purposely gone backwards on grapics and they're alot better than some of the crud churned out.

Sound? High quality, no annoying voice overs or horrible music or misbalanced sense of sound though the pacing of the game.

Controls? Smooth and easy to pick up and understand, there are shooters out there that has thrown this out the window before and CoD isnt one of them.

Story? Thoughtful and compelling enough to pick up the player motivate him to finish, there are games out there that can pick up a player then drop them from wanting to finish, though it was a short story of a game it was crammed packed with action.

Replay value? This is a faltering value on this game, even the people say the hardest mode was relativly easier Im not sure if this is was a result of fixing a problem in the last game the 'infinite' enemies but it probably is.

Yet there are those that this game irks them to think this is the worst game ever published, be honest this game is far from the worst, however its not the best out there either.
Things you think that would have improved the game?
-Probably the option for dedicated servers on the PC version
-A west coast US campaign involving the fresh out of boot camp marines having to deal with a situation they're wherent prepared for (which I think they where doing but had to remove due to publishing schedules, which explains the golden gate bridge map)
-A set of Special Ops mode tailored to allow 3-4 players and matchmaking for those missions as well, and maybe a few more missions that are more of a mini game like a 'horde' mode than just survive a few waves that already exist.
-Multiplayer Improvment? other than the dedicated servers the pc gamers want, would love to see non combat rewards for prestige mode and probably a few more maps (lack of variety in game styles right now)

Any game that could have been improved isnt the best game out there, but I think infinity ward knows they raised the bar again on terms of presenting a story though a game that can rival hollywoods ability to tell a story.

At the risk of getting e-lynched: I love MW2, single- and multi-player.

Personally I love it so far, single player was awesome and multiplayer despite the lack of dedicated servers is proving to be just as addictive, and sooo much fun with the new class options Very Happy

And in reply to the person on about game spot deleting reviews, you missed the bit where you can actually see what they deleted, I’d hardly call the following a review....

Not played the game but no dedicated server = fail (1 star)

I hear somebody’s already prestigeed twice on XBOX / PS3 leader boards btw, anyone confirm? Surprised

people prestigeed on the PC version arround day... 1? that's just how awesome VAC+IW.net is.


now I am in agreement that IW.net is good for the casual gameplay, that is if you manage to get a game with no hackers about, but not for competitive FPS, and that's the main gripe.

also, the fact that IW shat on the face of the modding community means that they intend to implement a P2P/microtransaction/DLC model.

some FPS survive with such method, BUT, they are f2p

some people have reported wallhacks/aimbots from day 1 and they either took too much time or haven't been banned yet.

Oh please, don't even start the whole hacker argument. It's nothing but the exact same "Terrorist" argument, which the government use to control you. It's simply not something that matters.

For what it's worth, I have been accused of using wallhack twice since MW2 was released. People who label others as hackers only do so because of their inability to explain how you just killed their 1337 ass!

I guess you haven't seen the 11 billion youtube videos out there of people using aimbots, no recoil scripts, and wallhacks in mw2 have you.

I used to think that, but with actual release i changed my mind.

In principle MW2 is probably an average shooter overall, nothing special, but gameplay wise and balance wise they only completely ****ed up a few things, could be worse. Online besides that is pretty much a disaster (which makes it average with poor quality of other recent games).

But as casual player:
I still want to play on a clan server so you just play regulary with same people, that is more fun than always with random people.

My ports are confirmed to be open, but it still says strict, limitting me in games.

Way too often terrible lag with the p2p crap.

Way too many errors, host migration failed, could not connect to host, lobby closed, hell even error messages telling you to reconnect to xbox live when playing on PC!

Long time between games, and takes too long to get into a game quite often. When you finally in a game and you start next map you get host migration failed or something similar and you can start searching again.

Sucky replay value, only a few maps, some of them crap maps, very short games, no custom maps -> you quickly have enough of those maps.

With dedi servers we would get custom maps, so better replay value. When you are on a good server it wont suddenly start lagging, sure it can happen sometimes, but nowehre near are frequent with p2p. Yuo dont have port forwarding to worry about, you got admins (granted they sometimes are not the brightest people, but still better than nothing), it is just better in every possible way, p2p doesnt add anything.

All these things make what could have been a great game nothing more than an average game. That it is now pretty much confirmed that virusses are being spread via IWnet also doesnt improve it.

Anyone else notice that any footage in the MW2 reviews on the PC version on both IGN and GameSpot is all from a concole version?


And they make no mention what so ever about any bad things?

The only bad thing both places mention is a short story but thats is made up for be a 'AWESOME' multiplayer mode...

Did then get a script each from infinity ward to read out of or they pull all adds or what?

Activision didnt allow reviewers to test the pc version before release, and since basicly all reviews these days are before release and otherwise you are outdated, they probably didnt bother to do a real PC review. From a dutch site: (Tweakers.net)

Quote:
Zoals jullie wellicht al hebben gelezen, hebben we een Modern Warfare 2 review geplaatst op basis van de Xbox 360-versie. Dit is geen bewuste keuze, maar de enige review-mogelijkheid die ons werd geboden door Activision.

Which translates roughly to:
We made an Xbox 360 review since that was the only possibility Activision gave us.

because when you spawn a few 100 feet in the sky and are getting shot at by a constant barrage of sniper fire that is just their good skills. (from halo 2 not mw2, really cba to buy mw2, never a fan of the cod series)

You naff. I've already pre-ordered mw4 for $90 and it should be out first quarter 2010. They say its rumoured to have an even moar intense 5vs5 multiplay and SIX hours of singleplayer content.

Also:

Over half a billion is sales in two days for the us and uk market alone.. My god. Now EVERYONE is going to start acting like EA. All gaming is doomed now if the indi devs and online shops start jumping on the OMGPROFITS at the exspence of a proper game bandwagon.

Half a billion in sales over two days for a $60+ game with a total of 5 hours singleplayer and a lulz 9vs9 multiplay says otherwise. ugh
