I test most of the games before buying them. I do own the whole NFS series, Battlefield games, COD4 and COD5, Mass Effect games, Dragon Age and a few others that are really awesome. :D
Well thats a bit different from...
I don't pay for the game. Never have. xD Except a few games that i want the limited editions like Mass Effect etc.
Just saying, with a high end rig like yours, not as if you cant afford the games, I have pirated for a long time mainly due to not being able to afford games but since having my steam account I have gone legit now as I am able to get a good selection of games at good prices and like the ease of use of steam, browse/buy/download!

I want to play the game asap. And if i was to pay $60 i would have never been able to get a rig like mine. So better just downloading it :D What harm can it do? :p

The Call of Duty series took a downfall when CoD 5 was released, it was a abortion of a game, CoD4 and CoD1 are probably the best, MW2 and CoD4 are almost alike, CoD BO looks almost the same as MW2. Its literally like a update for the game, that costs $120 (Aussie Dollars) I wont be purchasing this game, after watching the previews, gameplays etc.
whole heartedly agreed with this man.
however, im prepared to give it a chance, as alot of friends and work mates will be buying and i'm sure of having bare laughs on this game. hope its not a massive letdown like what treyarch always seems to be releasing

I don't understand all the hate towards Treyarch. I enjoyed WaW, although I may be one of the few that did.

Remember that guy Infinity Ward? He was the one that f'd everyone's experience on PC with MW2 by blatantly ignoring every request for information before the game was released. I remember cancelling my pre-order because of the pure disregard of PC gamers, the one's who made the COD series profitable in the first place.

At least Treyarch learned from IW's mistake and is making an active effort to include PC gamers. Yes the engine is old, but that doesn't mean the game won't be enjoyable. If you don't try it, you'll never know.

I didn't see anyone hating on it because it's treyarch (at least not yet). I see everyone hating on it because it appears to be just another overpriced rehash.

Why do you guys think MW2 is still 60 bucks? They know that if they lower the price down for MW2 people will just buy that. But when MW2 is 60 and black ops is 60 people will just buy Black Ops cause its newer, otherwise its the same COD shit.

I'm personally going to get the first thing that goes on sale between Black Ops or MOH.

I liked WaW too,Also it was Activision that gave pc users the :nutkick:with MW2 and Infinity Ward just had the bad idea of IWnet to get out of the contract.

WHy buy MOH they just released a patch on the 2nd and now you have to pay for it.:nutkick:
The patch is essentially free the only thing they give you the option to buy is the King of the Hill mode which is still wack, heck even MW2 had King of the Hill mode as a standard. It seems like every game company is looking for a method to take your money and its getting rather annoying. You pay $60 for a game title then they charge you $10-$15 extra for game modes that they probably already had done with the game in the beginning or in COD's case charge you for maps they already had done in previous games and of which most people had already technically payed for (assuming the bought MW 1). Worst part of it all is they are successfully ripping people off who either don't care, aren't aware, or have money to throw away.

I honestly think most people will enjoy the SP campaign on this. It has some VERY nice little touches to it and great cinematic interactive scenes (the Russion roulette scene in Vietnam springs to mind).

It isnt groundbreaking, but it is a fun shooter with a good storyline. It has a few nice vehicle sections also. Piloting the Mi-24 Hind Gunship is pretty cool and the mini-gun is a nice addition to your arsenal :D

At the end of the day, if your not a Call Of Duty fan, you may want to avoid this. But, trust me, the CoD fanboys, like myself, will lap this up. Bring on Modern Warfare 3 I say because i want to know what happens to Soap & Price :D

LOL, yep it does have a few movie clichés (even one 'borrowed' from The Last Castle ;) ) But, I really did not mind this, it adds to the gameplay.

Actually m8, the game has some very nice weaponry in it. Personally, I loved the G11, mainly because I had never heard of this prototype assault rifle, or ever seen it in a game (maybe I have but just didnt realise?).

I understand why most PC gamers regard the recent CoD titles as games made by Satan himself. But, I cant help liking them. Being a console only guy now, Im quite easily pleased (and I would rather play something than nothing at all!). But if the game was shite, I would say so.

Me being on PC has nothing to do with it lol

I've been a COD fan since the 1st game. Then the COD2 came out which was an evolution for the series. COD4 was a revolution for fps games. After COD4, the cod series have been taking a step backwards.

Since I've been a fan for so long, I know what's quality and what's not.

It's not IW/Treyarchs fault, it's Activision. Since COD4 was such a blast, All Activision sees is dollar signs, they don't give either developing team enough time to come up with balances, fresh ideas, fixing glitches/bugs/exploits...etc

They're like "k you have 1 year to take the cod4 engine, come up with a theme and put a ton of stuff; no questions asked". A new COD game every year? C'mon now.

When Starcraft 2 came out, it was an instant success and definitely well worthy of the 1st one. Now imagine if they released a new SC every year, it would be utter crap. You can't balance a game and fix every bug in one year.

What new content have they released for Cod4? or WaW? I guarantee they won't release any new content after BO goes retail.

Lets take Team Fortress 2, it's been out for a few years now and STILL gets new content and patches and is all around fun.

After every new game, they completely stop supporting the previous COD titles.

It's not IW/Treyarchs fault, it's Activision. Since COD4 was such a blast, All Activision sees is dollar signs, they don't give either developing team enough time to come up with balances, fresh ideas, fixing glitches/bugs/exploits...etc

They're like "k you have 1 year to take the cod4 engine, come up with a theme and put a ton of stuff; no questions asked". A new COD game every year? C'mon now.

When Starcraft 2 came out, it was an instant success and definitely well worthy of the 1st one. Now imagine if they released a new SC every year, it would be utter crap. You can't balance a game and fix every bug in one year.

What new content have they released for Cod4? or WaW? I guarantee they won't release any new content after BO goes retail.

Lets take Team Fortress 2, it's been out for a few years now and STILL gets new content and patches and is all around fun.

After every new game, they completely stop supporting the previous COD titles.
I like getting a new CoD title each year. Because by this time the old one starts to get stale anyway!

People still play CoD 4 and WaW today, even if new content doesnt get released for them. Modern Warfare 2 is still VERY big and will still be played for some time.
