This is AMAZING!

TNT the broadcaster of the NBA Finals in the US failed when they showed the trailer. They only played 30 seconds of it, and then cut back to the game! they showed the complete trailer at the end of the game, but it was quite a nonsense!

anyways, trailer looks amazing, can't wait for this game!

Evilly good stuff, looking forward to the MP reveal. I'd be interested to know how much IW can improve on that element.

Really nice trailer. I just hope they do something about the infinitely respawning enemies and the absurdly accurate grenades the AI uses....

Great trailer. That's how you show off your game when you know your graphics engine is one of the best out there. Impressive stuff.

FireWire - the re-spawning of enemies is something that's being dealt with according to the developer.

They've claimed they're working on this stuff. I guess we'll see. I love Call of Duty, but it definitely has some serious issues surrounding the single player campaign. I haven't played Call of Duty 4's SP.. but it was no different in the games that preceded it.

I have some issues with the MP as well, but I doubt they will be addressed. The progression is simply too popular for them to abandon. I guess it's okay though, since clan play is handled by a mod anyway..... but I have issues with the modders as well.

Great but flawed game. If it weren't for a few things I think I'd call it one of the best games ever.. and despite not being able to make that claim, it's still the FPS I've spent perhaps the most time on. The combat is nearly perfect.

Yes, they have confirmed that the endless spawning will be adressed.

About the trailer: Everything, literaly everthing what is shown in the trailer is scripted. Does that look spectacular? Yes it does. Is it impressive? No it isn't anymore. At least that is my opion. I was a huge fan of Call of duty when the franchise started. Now, after 5 iterations and 1 expansion, I'm dead tired of the scripted events in COD. This generation of games should evolve into intense gameplay without the completely scripted events.
About the graphics: looks the same quality wise as COD:MW.

wow epic!

can't wait for modern warfare 2 and guys, only play this on veteran mode ;P

WOW, just WOW!
Commented on 2009-05-25 12:26:42
Heh, just like with COD 4 and WaW I'll probably only play MP at first thanks to my friends. Looks great but nothing unexpected.
Commented on 2009-05-25 12:36:47
Let's hope it's a longer game then the previous one. These games are fun, but way to short for the price we pay.

It's beyond me how people claim this looks bad. Sure, there's a few bland scenes in there (snow level) and some bland lighting and textures now and then, but overall this game looks amazing.

The attention to detail is nothing short of stunning, the art is truly fantastic. The environments are rich and probably the most believable I've seen in any game so far. Graphicswise this game is an absolute stunner, and at that it's also multiplat and running at a staggering 60 fps...that's nothing short of impressive.

Btw, I like heavily scripted moments in my single player campaigns. Fuck this so called fake "open world design" so many games fail to achieve. Just get rid of the infinite spawns and unfair AI and I'm in!

Great trailer, but waiting to see some gameplay.

Thank you so much. There is still hope out there if they are gamers like you. Scripted events are to make the cool happen while your in the game. Im probably one of the only few who plays IW COD's just for the single player campaign.

I remember COD2 and its scripted events. I was totally sucked into the whole WW2 fiasco. It was awesome. COD4 came out and I have beat the campaign on every difficulty at least twice.

For some this scripted events give us a great cinematic experience. And the game looks good. Period. Its the 5th year of the xbox 360? what more do you want?

People moan too much this days. As said before, just remove infite spawning and we are good to go. Can't wait.

On grafic side of things engine show its ages mostly on effects like dust,fire etc.But textures ar very nice colored so game look fresh.I belive MP would be very fun like in part 4..I played part 4 and 5 on playstation 3 platform and i really hope for dedicated servers this time for beter online expirience

Very well presented trailer imo! I think graphically it's a mixed bag, looks mediocre in certain scenes but fantastic in most of the others. Overall looking really nice, just can't justify a buy for me since I'm not really into reaction-based multi-player (yeah I'm not great, but I do prefer other kinds of online play)
Commented on 2009-05-25 13:42:35
The only thing "bad" about scripted events is that they lose the edge when you replay the game. I just hope the fix the knife when online.

day one buy for me! i still play the multiplayer of cod4...
mordern warfare was one of the most intense and detailed ego shooter i've ever played.
can't wait anymore... give it to me now! ;-)

This looks fu*kin awsome!I played MW1 and spent more than 1500h on online playing.Cant wait for this!!!
Commented on 2009-05-25 14:19:37
The fact that COD's campaign is so scripted is pretty much the reason I enjoy it so much. Okay, so it's incredibly linear, but what a fucking thrill it is. I mean, in my opinion, the best campaigns are the most scripted campaigns. Sure, it's not so great the second time through, but it's still awesome while it lasts. The multiplayer aspect will be spot on as expected.

Oh, the trailer was awesome by the way. Despite what others say, I think the game looks stunning and is a visual improvement over its predecessor (albeit slightly). That landscape - I think it was in Rio - looked gorgeous.

another day 1 must buy.
