The first 10 minutes: Modern Warfare 2

It's D-Day for many gamers today with the much awaited release of Modern Warfare 2. No review planned, but enjoy these first 2 videos to be followed by 2 more. Definitely the most spectacular FPS ever released, that's for sure.

I've corrected that for you Blim. ;-)
It's definatley spectacular but i wouldn't go so far as to say THE most spectacular.

ya that title will remain for bad company 2 if it holds true to whats been promised, but MW2 is looking wicked, im hoping to get a copy today, if they dont sell out

Would be spectacular if it had mods, custom maps and dedicated servers. Not much point without them.

Sure hope this isn't going to be a trend.

Yep, the most hyped game ever. To me it's more of the same (yes I have the game on PC). Multiplayer is ruined because of the lack of dedicated servers.
It looks a bit better graphics wise, but not much. It's just more over the top than the first. More explosions, more gunfire, etc. but the game is the same.

isnt this game only like 4 hours long, 10 minutes seems like a lot to spoil for such a short game

don't troll. the game is short, but for example http://www.joystiq.com/2009/11/10/review-call-of-d... it took the reviewer 10.5 hours to finish the game.

10 and a half hours? seriously...lol i think the last 2 cod games combined didnt even manage to take up that amount of time. and it wasnt trolling, cod games are known for being very short (but very VERY sweet) experiences. to see 10 minutes of the game seems excessive for such a short game imo.

on easy 7 hours on veteran up to 10 hours
Commented on 2009-11-10 14:08:02
honestly it looks just like CoD1 with a new coat of paint. I didn't understand the hype for this series then and I don't understand it now. BTW I was in the beta for CoD WaW and played the demo for CoD4.

Bring on Bad Company 2 :-D

Playing it now, but have that feeling of been there, done that, wearing the T-shirt already. Good job I got it mainly for the MP and for 26 squids.

cod mw:1 had most memorable moments in all fpsers out there im getting this one for sure. Solid 60 fps + full package of awesomenes + solid MP im in.
Commented on 2009-11-10 15:35:15
Most of the hype is going to MP.

Yes the Online part of this game will destroy any game out there for the next year or so.

My hunger for fps games was satiated by Killzone 2 and thus i doubt whether would this bring back the hunger
Commented on 2009-11-10 16:07:12
I just don't get the HYPE :S

A game that can be accomplished in 5 hours doesn't deserve all this credit. Today's developers can make so much variety when they have so little gameplay-time.

It's MORE DIFFICULT to make a game that has about 10 hours of gameplay or more AND still make it exciting to play.
Epic made 9-10 hours gameplay of Gears of War 2 and it never stopped being fun - now that's something to be hyped about.

I'm not stupid enough to pay 50-60 bucks just for 5 hours of gameplay. I'd rather wait. aaand please don't come with argumentations about "multiplayer" is the most important content. IT IS NOT! The Single Player Campaign is the HEART in all games and should be TOP PRIORITY - once again - Infinity Award have failed in my eyes.

Infinity Ward failed pretty hard in my eyes too--but your assertion that single player is the HEART in all games.... is wrong. Just play something else, if you're not a MP fan.

I've played over a thousand hours of COD4 online. You don't get much better value than that in gaming.

Wow. Such hate, and I guarantee it's because of the PC iteration's issues. Nevermind that the Devs obviously put a ton of effort into the games single player( even if it is short, it's still more than 98 percent of what other devs put out). The work is quality, and even if it is derivitive of itself- it is still well done. I am sorry they let some people down with the whole mod/ server( I am, it's clearly important to the PC community), but at least give them credit for the stuff they DID accomplish. I think the anger over the PC stuff had spoiled this game for some before they played it, and it never had a chance. I'm not even that crazy about the game, but with as few really good devs there are, the entitlement mentality and sheer arrogance of some people drives me crazy. It certainly wasn't smart to piss off such a loud segment of their fanbase, but did you ever think that this time they just wanted to focus on other things than those features? It doesn't make then evil or greedy because they didn't have what you want in their game. Some of you guys sound like a bunch of children. Speak with your wallet people, but the game is STILL quality...

Probably about as much as consumer complacency drives me crazy.

you know you want it Grift. Just get it for the 360 and you'll be fine with your consciousness and cause! We'll tell your l33t PC friends you never bought it (....for PC) :P

I don't think most of the clannies out there, at least the ones who haven't been involved for the last 6-12 months, are even aware of most of the issues with the game.

Winster/Cryoss: dooooooooooood
Winster/Cryoss: we gota play some cod 6
=6thAD=Neo Bogard </3: yo
=6thAD=Neo Bogard </3: I'm not buyin it
=6thAD=Neo Bogard </3: :/
Winster/Cryoss: waaaaaaat
LOL! Oh well...

And I've said it before: If I wanted the Xbox game, I'd get the PC version! ;)

But seriously speaking for a second: I'm sure there's a good game in there. I adore Call of Duty's basic gameplay mechanics. I actually think it's the best combat out there, still.

It's being buried in excessive silliness now, but it's still under there somewhere.. and I certainly don't fault anyone for liking the game.
Commented on 2009-11-10 18:12:28
I finished the campaign in 6 hours, very good game but I still liked the campaign in Killzone 2 alot better. I'd give MW2's campaign 8.5/10 and Killzone 2's campaign 9.5/10.....Uncharted 2 game of the year for me
Commented on 2009-11-10 18:35:08
Well, I'm loving it so far (MP that is). Only played 2 games, and while the overall core feel is the same, it all just feels so fresh and awesome! The sounds and graphics are just that bit sharper and snappier, and I'm really diging the new interface.

It's still way too early for a good judgement, since there's still so much to discover (and I'm sure I'll come across some annoyances too). Getting to learn the weapons, the maps, the perks, the killstreaks and so on. I also like the little touches like the 'revenge kills' and such. Damn, this game will definitely keep me going for another 1000 or so hours, just like MW1 did...AWESOME!
