MW1 is great.

MW2 is a complete failure, 100% marketing game with nothing in it. The solo campaign is 5 or 6 hours long. The multiplayer is not hosted and limited to 9vs9 with a very crappy system called IWnet. And the game is pretty expensive.





So you better wait Battlefield Bad Company 2 and play something else until then. smile.gif

I have to disagree...

Tho I haven't played the multiplayer, and can't say anything about that...
Yeah, it's short, but not any shorter that the first one... It's very entertaining,
And had me with all those movie like mission, just like the first one...

And really wasn't that expensive... I payed around 57 €

But this is just my opinion, everyone has their own..

I think the game rocks

Cheers

I think its great. The online got much better however the maps are okay. I've beaten the campaign and am halfway through on Veteran. It's a pretty fun campaign. It was expensive but who cares. Bad Company sucked to begin with why buy number two?

Well, we don't really disagree. The solo campaign is probably as great as in MW1... but I played online during 2 years with MW1 and I just can't imagine switching to player hosted games with all the disadvantages that gives.

(If you are not located in North America then most of the games will be full of lag.)

It's just a huge disappointment for the online community. In fact, there is no more community. The game is completely closed. But the day they will patch that and add dedicated servers I will buy it for sure. smile.gif

If you check on the internet, there are a lot of oddities with the multiplayer. For example, some people find hidden modes, most likely to be "released" in some later add-ons. Hope those add-ons will be free otherwise you will pay twice for the same game. wink.gif

So if you want to play solo, go for it, if you want to play online, forget it. tongue.gif

I get your point mate smile.gif

I've played both of them on Xbox360, and never really played
them online that much, cause I don't want to pay for extra 60€
to do that, so I've settled for the campaigns, and they ROCK biggrin.gif

Maybe I should've been more spesific creating this thread... smile.gif

Cheers

I've got it for the Xbox360, but I only play online Free-For-All. I usually rank higher in MW2 than I did in COD4.

I'm g pop 70 if anybody wants to friend me and play online.

Well I'm in America so I guess I get where you are coming from, I never usually get lag, but every time I am in a game with a 'Brit' as they are called on MW2 or someone else from Europe the lag gets bad.

Way too short!!! ohmy.gif

I feel like I was ripped of, I beat the campaing in under 4 Hours!!! The game is awesome but only half as long as the first one, the spec ops mode gives another hour playing time but that is still not enough for a Game this expensive!

The great multiplayer makes up for it a bit but the singleplayer value of this game is really bad!

I think many are in agreement that this games multiplayer made it all worth while although I have to say I am a little disappointed that I pre-ordered it when I was expect so much more from the campaign. They spent almost 3 years on it so I expected a little more but I still enjoyed it.

Though short, i found the campaign to be great with some fantasticly "cinematic" scenes (just beat it last night) ..haven't tried spec ops so far but i guess i'll wait until my brother gets it so we can team up.

I think the multiplayer is awesome too, i got hooked in just 3 matches. I've got MW2 running on my pc despite all the commotion about no dedicated servers, im in the uk and not experiencing lag 99.99(9?)% of the time.

Get this game regardless of which platform you're on, but clear your schedule...

-- I don't know how you go about adding people on MW2 for pc (anyone wantr to enlighten me? I haven't actually looked yet in fairness tongue.gif) but if anyone wants to add me/find me/shoot at me my username is VikingKong

I think i will not support this game in any way. Since here in germany there is a huge problem with violent games MW2 has thrown the discussion way back because of its insane level of brutality (The level where you kill everyone at the airport, even civillians). It surely doesnt lead to aggressive behaviour when you play it but it is a dead giveaway for those that race against egoshooters and "killer-games". Show those scenes on tv and you have won... A country where any egoshooter or similar is extinct.

Besides that its way too expensive. It just dropped to 44 Euros here but for 4-6 hours of gameplay and half of multiplayer functionality it is just too much. I can buy games like Fallout 3 (ok, no multiplayer) with hundreds of hours of fun, i pay for the game plus 5 addons only 40 Euros.

So what i think of mw2 is that it is a huge PR thing gone wrong.

Just saw this topic!

I got a ps3 in Christmas and MW2 in january, and I must say I love the game. I haven't played single player much, but I've already put almost 100 hours online and it rocks, there are thousands of players any time of the day and it works quite well. I find multiplayer so awesome that I never find the time to beat SP campaign laugh.gif though I have to do it because the four missions I played were great too.

This would have been a great game if they changed a few things. To much Killstreaks, Shotguns, Akimbo, Maps, Deathstreaks and It's just too easy to be good at.
