Modern Warfare 2 Disappointing

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Modern Warfare 2 Disappointing

 

Well picked up this game yesterday. Had been playing uncharted 2 ever day before buying this. I loved COD 4 and was hoping for an improvement in graphics and gameplay. First off, I was disappointed with the graphics. They look outdated, the same as COD 4. Gameplay was also the same. Dont get me wrong, the game is fun but I was hoping for so much more. I just feel that for ps3 owners with killzone 2 and uncharted 2, the bar has been raised considerably. Maybe modern warfare 2 has not lived up to expectations because of the limitations of other consoles as it is cross platform.

Anyone else feel the same way?

i have quick question. how does online work for this game.

if a friend is over at my place, can he grab a controller and play online with me? or is it like COD4 and only one person can play at a time, and I have to tell my firends to go home so i can play with them.



I think your friend has to be at his house

Well yes it looks worse than Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2, but that does not matter. It should not be directly compared with either of them, because this is different type of shooter. Those are both more tactical, whereas CoD is a lot more frantic and more about action that methodically taking out enemies from behind cover. And the online is even better than KZ 2s

The online RULEZ.. it´s a lot better now, it´s similar to LIVE...

You open the lobby, click on INVITE... then will appear a list of friends and what they are doing.. you will have options to join theyr game or you can invite then...

On Coop missions you can invite the other person, goes as a message to your friend in his house.

It´s the best!!! :) really loved!

Hi Demon123, I have to admit, I didn´t bought Killzone2 or Uncharted 2 just because I was sooo adicted to Moderm Warfare OnLine that I just waited for MW2 and I am just playing the online component... I didn´t liked the Killzone demo, I prefer COD4 single that time... as I played Uncharted Online DEMO and wasn´t appealing to me...

So... I think it depends of the persons taste and likes/dislikes.. as I am a noob and don´t have soo much time to play... I think if I had 1h+ per day to play... possibly I will share your opinion.. but I always get in trouble changing controls themes and etc..etc.. so I kept myself into MW2 and one demo that I really like but didn´t bought was CASTLE Wolfenstein... about controls and mood..

Uncharted 2 has great mood but Killzone 2 hasn´t.. soo, noobies prefer MW2, hehehe

ohh other thing on MW2 is the mood/enviroment and sounds, are really appealing... I think better than what I saw in Killzone 2, but not so great as what I got in Uncharted 2 demo.

MW2 meets my expectations, but because I didn't have that high expectations compared to PS3 exclusives.

It is of course strange games like Halo and Call of Duty (or certain sports games) don't receive a similar penalty for being so similar to past titles, while for other games like for example Ratchet & Clank: TOD (which had quite a bit of unique gameplay, like the great sixaxis controlled flight sections) do.

So there's clear bias involved, especially from the US press it seems.



Naughty Dog: "At Naughty Dog, we're pretty sure we should be able to see leaps between games on the PS3 that are even bigger than they were on the PS2."

PS3 vs 360 sales

Just sit back, enjoy the games you like actually and wait for Crysis 2 PC version. If you have a PC for it, you wouldn't be able to complain about anything :)

it still means that i can't have friends over to play, we need to each be at our own place.  which is gay.  i like gaming with actual physical interaction not over some damn headset.
