Giving the game a 10 for its visuals is absolutely b.s. Considering that its a multiplatform.

Graphics should be somewhere between 9.1 - 9.3.

 

 

OMG...

I'm sick of this completely false idea that some how games have gotten shorter. Does anyone remember Golden Eye? It was possible to beat the game in 40 minutes for **** sake. If you think the single player is too short for your taste that's one thing, but to claim that a 5 hour campaign is some kind of revelation in the fps genre is laughable. Not every fps is HL.

As for for people complaining about the 10 for last appeal. MW was one of the most played games online of this console generation, millions of people have spent 50+ hours with this game online. Infinity Ward has made the online experience a major focus and deservedly so due to the response of its community. If online isn't your thing then no it doesn't have a lot of lasting appeal, but then the game isn't designed with you in mind, it was designed with the millions of players who buy these games with online play as a focal point of the experience. This is like complaining about the lasting appeal of Oblivion if you hate open world rpgs. If this type of game is your cup of tea then yes the lasting appeal is a well deserved 10.

I know reading reviews is to hard for a lot of people. The review clearly states that if you are buying the game for the single player you might be disappointed and should consider renting it instead. I know thats hard to get from looking at a number. Pro tip: spend 5 minutes to read a review before you rip it apart.

Lastly IGN is not one guy in his basement. Mark Bozon gave this game a 9.5 some other editor reviewed Uncharted 2, these are the opinions of different people and are not directly comparable. To say Uncharted deserves a 9.9 if this game got a 9.5 is absurd considering these are reviewed by different people with different standards.

So many absurd posts in this thread that seem to be propagated by people with agendas rather then well formulated opinions or arguments.



music by Hans Zimmer eh, dident know he made also music for games



   

Improvements are caused by people who complain

killzone 2 's hype is nothing compared to cod mw2...and while that might not be saying much theres still a very big difference.



"They will know heghan belongs to the helghast"

the online hype for KZ easily surpasses MW2 but that could be my perception due to spending alot of time on N4G

And people were complaining about ODST? A 4-5 hour campaign is ridiculous, especially since they've been developing this for what, two years now.



themanwithnoname's law: As an America's sales or NPD thread grows longer, the probabilty of the comment "America = World" [sarcasticly] being made approaches 1.

Why is that whenever something becomes mega popular everyone starts hating on it?

 

The hating is on the review, not the game.

 

So the game has iffy graphics and isn't even 720p...so what.   However saying these quality of graphics is a perfect 10...bullshit.

Have you actualy played it yet? if not how the fcuk would you know ANYTHING about the game or graphics.....

The game looks and plays amazingly, by far my favorite game of the generation, play it and you will see why, and yup, graphics are easily a 10, its cod 4 on steriods.

People have complained that Killzone 2 got 9.5 for graphics on IGN and COD4 MW 2 got 10. Well they arent the only ones who thought MW2 was better. GameTrailers review said the only game they played with equal or better was Uncharted 2 visually. That says alot. Who cares if it's multiplat, and who cares if it means the PS3 isn't the all powerful machine you were lead to believe. Be happy it looks fantastic. It feels much more like war than KZ2 partly due to visuals.

surely you have played KZ2 completely to know that

Actually no. I have played through about 70% of KZ2. Not all. But Even from playing through the first 3 levels of MW2. I agree entirely with the reviewers on this one. MW2 is up there with Uncharted 2 in visuals. In different ways. But when compared to KZ2, MW2 wins.

Oh good christ, take the fanboy goggles off just for a minute.
