    Im assuming it is just a way to play online or something like a 3rd person view deathmatch mode (think socom). I am sure the game runs native to FPS. and TPS would be the alternate option.

    Still don't know what possessed them to do this.

    It says a minimum of a 3.2 P. My second gamer is 3.0 P4. But my card is far better then their recommended minimum card and I have 3 times the ram. What are the chances it will still run it.
    If nothing else the Lan games would be cool if the multiplayer sucks.

    boise, I think you can overclock your 3.0 p4 to 3.2 easily, but I dont think its going to make a big difference in performance. With a p4, I think you are looking at minimal detail with lowest resolution and maybe acceptable FPS. Just curious, how is your pc running the first modern warfare COD4.

    Bad news then, neither console or pc is getting any kind of lan gameplay option.

    Also, if you can play the first one, expect similar performance from this one.

    Great at about medium setting and 800x600 rez.It is the second gamer I have posted under my posts. It is an MPC and is locked for OCing though. I've had game before that a video card made up for the lack of CPU speed. I hope this is the case. Some games now though won't even let you load them if you don't meeting minimum requirements.

    I play Call of Duty 5 fine on this machine too. That bites if they won't have lan. Could you find an empty server and play on that ? I'm confused on what all these screw ups they are doing to the MP options. Why didn't they leave that part just like COD 4. That was what made it such a success.

    They won't leave it alone because they see a large void in the pc market for the potential they have to get extra profits post sale. They spend too much time drooling over the money console players hand out and think they can get the same from the pc community. So, they cut off all cords that could allow any kind of multiplayer/mods for the game to get around them getting money for DLC. I won't be surprised either if they charge a monthly fee to play online.

    If you go back a few pages there is a link to comments from the CEO of Activision. I think things will come to light after you read the article. :shadedshu

    they are trying to turn the pc into something its not. the reason we play games on the pc is we like dedicated servers, we like mods, we like 50 player team death matches.

    when you take these things away you are left with a platform that is crippled for absolutely no reason other than they think we will all run out to buy it for a small fortune (£50 in the uk :eek:) then be left with a crippled game that you cant play with your friends as soon as they bring out an update because they thing we will all we willing to spend even more money on a game we already paid for.

    you can almost smell the bs as they try and sell the maps as expansion packs or something.



    as the late great george carlin said: ITS ALL BULLSHIT AND ITS BAD FOR YOU!

    no richard, i'm angry for the sake of mother fucking high latency. they should have just made this game to where pc players can v.s console players. then it'd be worth $61 for the sake of slaying i mean playing consolers.

    She is 26 and has had 2 of her own. Right now they are living with me.
    Please take her and her husband and leave the grandkids:laugh:
    I'm torn , but I have worn out everything else I own. A little tired of COD 4.
    I like the look of BFBC 2 , but I don't want to wait another 6 months to buy a
    new game. What do you have that you could ship to me :roll:

    Yeah they have some new maps. I may check it out again.
    The SP was pretty good, but not enough to do it again.

    Woot.. Just what Obama needs to see for his "anti gaming" thoughts.... Soon, we might be just looking forward to the 5th barbie paradise game...

    I'm sorry.. But, this would just make me, not even want to play it... It's realistic... But, damn...
