    I shutter to think what 29 years of video gaming and my IDPA training have done to me. :eek:

    "For those of us looking to pick up the game on PC, a few more things need to be noted about Modern Warfare 2. Infinity Ward has worked to make sure the experience on PC is identical to that of 360 and PS3, and while I'd say the team has succeeded overall, that's so a good and bad thing for various players. On the plus side, you're getting the same amazing experience as the other versions, and those that want a game that's easy to jump into online and connect with other players will find it with the PC version of Modern Warfare 2. What that also means, however, is that the PC version is also locked to the same restrictions as the other versions, so 32 person matches are a thing of the past, you can't create dedicated servers for match hosting, and that also will result in a lack of future mod support and PC-specific expansion. While this is definitely a downside for those familiar with the expandability of PC gaming and freedom that comes with a more open source platform, IW is essentially forcing the PC version to play by the same rules as the console offerings, and thus making sure anyone that wants to jump in and get the intended Modern Warfare 2 experience can do so across any system. It'll hurt the hardcore PC community, and but it's a decision IW made."
    - Mark Bozon, IGN PC Reviewer.

    The game got a 9.5, and this guy is definately a hardcore PC gamer. Picking up the game tonight.

    I dont see why it had to be a playable level tho, why not just a cutscene just as effective if not more effective.

    Been watching my brother play through it. On the 360, and i had no problem in that scene/ level as you firstly have the option to skip it.

    If the ratings authoitys had a problem, it would have been refused rating and wouldn't have been released. Remember it's just a game, yes could happen but if games such as Manhunt are allowed i can't see why this level wasn't.

    The multiplayer on console is actually quite good though :) and so is the Special opps on splitscreen.

    I think them making it the exact same as console on the pc is stupid. People get the PC version for the extras that a PC can do. Whatever, they wont get my money.

    this game has gotten groundbreaking reviews, and ive seen the gameplay live: its golden.

    Dont go by what other people tell you, about them not wanting to buy the game because of this or that. That just makes you weak. This equates to not buying this game = you are a weak person. Good day, Sir.

    MW:2 is not for me. I am a multiplayer gamer and not console and 9 vs 9 is just dumb and a waste of time. Over priced and over hyped.

    I support PC gaming community which this game is clearly leaning in the console community. Game devs are trying to take what creates a PC game out to make it as bland and unmodifiable as console games. THIS is why i wont support this game by paying for it. If a big company like IW starts heading this way others will follow in their foot steps. Using an over hyped game like this will just be the spearhead to their crusade because they know people will purchase the game based on its popularity.

    Buying a game based on what others tell you(reviews included) would make you "weak" under your same logic. :laugh: It works both ways. Life is about deciding who to trust.
