    The thing is, what is the point of the mission? It doesn't feel anything like "Call of Duty".

    To be perfectly honest, that mission makes me want to get the game. I know, you probably think I'm fucked up.. But mowing people down is why I play FPS games.

    To give you the perspective of Makarov. In the mission you are actually undercover as a terrorist, and are forced to partake in that event.

    That doesn't sound Call of Duty. It smells CIA.

    Well keep in mind that the other COD's don't really have a story, they just follow a guy through the events of WWII.

    Ive just started playing MP for like 30mins & already it seems like the game is failcake - since its 9v9 in TDM & most higher level players have 50.cal snipers it seems a real camp fest.

    I suppose 9v9 is more personal but I can say that Im already taking a huge dislike to the MP aspect of the game....SP however is passable, I could probably replay it a few times.

    is it just me or does MP really really fucking suck?

    Another problem is Steams feature to let you see how many people are in that current game/server. because now you actually waste time joining a friends game not knowing weather the servers full or not...

    I f**king hate this 9v9 bullshit - MW1 will ALWAYS be the best out of this consolized peice of crap. f**K IW & the cursed bastard child they call Modern Warefare 2

    Taken from the Steam forums;
    The game does require that it can communicate outbound only on 3 UDP ports for the IWNet matchmaking, port 1500, port 3005, port 3101. It's unusual for outbound ports to be blocked except in the most restrictive settings, most users won't have to do anything for this to work even in a university type setting.

    To host, I believe you may need port 28960 open for UDP incoming (this is what some people are setting up port forwarding for). But again, you shouldn't worry about this as you never really need to host.


    I did that, and mine's now open. I've even hosted a couple times (only way you can tell is if you leave, it says that it's trying to find another server for them). Also doing this helped considerably with finding <100ms servers.


    Tbh, if you cared to pay any form of attention, you'd realize that the .50cal is the DEFAULT sniper rifle for the default Sniper class. It isn't a high-end rifle anymore, since you also start off with it in your 'Custom Kits'. And to stop finding nothing but "camp fests", play Domination, where players actually have to move about to get shit done, sure you'll still find SOME campers, but no where near as many as in TDM.

    And to clear up any confusion about the default classes, they're not very basic and simple kits, they've got higher level stuff than most lvl20's, so you can have a "preview" of the higher end equipment and perks.

    well I apologise for being completely shatterd after a week of 2-10 shifts that has left me totally exhausted & unable to grasp the basics of the game.

    good day to you sir.

    Well don't take your frustrations out on something else that you've obviously don't even fully understand it, and then come on here and rant about how shit it is even though you "are unable to grasp the basics of the game" in the first place.

    Take a break, once you're no longer "shattered", try the game again and come back with an intellectual view instead of an emotional one.

    I totally agree - EA deserves much praise for finally bringing in widescreen support. BF2, Pre-CoD:Mw2 games are definitely more enjoyable.

    Pitty this new addition to a successful franchise leaves a very very bitter taste in my mouth. If they ever make another CoD - their gonna need to do some serious sucking up to fans to make up for this shenanigans. & I bet they will too! I bet the next CoD game will see the return of 32vs32 & Dedicated servers. & that alone will be a testament to how incredibly lacking MW2 was, pitty the games released so they cant really do any big modifications to the game.

    i think they'll get out of this rut and release a true CoD 5 and 6 - the numbers are missing from WaW and MW2, so they're like "side" games to the series

    well im not sure about that.... this whole Console Vs PC business has been going on for a while & console ports are slowly starting to appear more n more on the market. I Fear its not going to be that difficult to shake off.

    while i hate console ports some have been very good and are slowly getting better we have to face the fact games are gonna get ported more and more which im not adverse to it means more games for us to play what i want to see is better support and better optimization

    example Brothers in Arms hells highway horrible game on PC with the dev refusing to patch the issues

    good examples Masseffect and now were seeing more games released of there time hell SF4 and RE5 were nice releases my point is more games is good as long as they fucking work pardon the french.
    i think some devs get flak for no reasons some games made for pc epic fail because there rushed hopefully companies learn to polish there work a bit more and release it for us PC platform has unreleased potential but i can willingly deal with that for lots of games that work and play and get fixed properly

    well whatever, I really cant see myself falling head over heels over MW2 almost enough to brand it 0% content.

    but at least the Co-Op SP missions are nice, at least its not all crap. thats the only good thing i can think of about the game.

    Well despite multiplayer sucking hardcore i think the SP version is just awesome. Better than the first. I really dont see whats so bad about that mission. I mean come on you can do ALOT worse in other games. Postal 2 comes to mind actually. Nothing beats pouring gas on somebody and lighting their sorry asses on fire then they run into the library (or mall) and catch every one else on fire. How bout beating your local police lady with a fucking shovel. SHOVEL!! Yea, so mowing people down with a submachine gun is nothing compared to that. Last but not least, GTA anybody? I can rape your mother in that game and the cops will walk by and not even give a shit.

    I think the panty wastes of this world need to wake up and smell the slimey piece of shit thats in their cup cause thats all this world is anymore. And for people to bitch over a game is pretty pointless too. Its a game. If you like it then buy it or find other means of "aquiring" it. If not then sit back, dont buy it, and enjoy your 60 extra bucks in your pocket. Done deal.
    El_Mayo and HookeyStreet say thanks.

    That was the first game that ever inspired me to throw a controller. *shudder*

    For $40, this would be a great game I think. Not for $60 tho, not even for $50. If you give us less content, you need to lower the price, not inflate it.
