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

The game got a 9.5, and this guy is definately a hardcore PC gamer. Picking up the game tonight.
Show your pride with your pre-order cancellation.
Theres plenty of other games that i play without dedacated servers that play fine for me,
tho it would be nice to have them i dont see it as a reson to boycot a game, imo if you like the game buy it if you dont then dont buy it
Picked up the last copy from HMV in Oxford tonight.
Downloading through Steam now and will leave overnight and play through some tomorrow. I'll let you know what my thoughts are soon.
I dont see why it had to be a playable level tho, why not just a cutscene just as effective if not more effective.
I thought you had the option to skip that level?
okay who else bought the pc version. cause before i started installing it, it said wont unlock yet. but why release it to retail if u cant play it for 3 days?
ya can but why even include that is it just me that thinks that was a bit wierd
obviously a PA stunt i guess
i dont think the pc version unlocks just yet
but why release it to retail to just sit on your shelf???
does it need to use steam to activate it?
well second disc is installing now. it opened itself in a steam installer. and before the install started, said its not unlocked yet.
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.
Damn, I hope not :shadedshu
IT WORKS. the install finished. then the update/play now window came up. play now worked just fine.
So did it need steam?
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.
Same. Thats why I'm waiting for Bad Company 2.
Same here. Bad Company 2 Beta starts soon. I already have a key for console and waiting for the pc beta key.
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. It works both ways. Life is about deciding who to trust.
Its the same price as every other new release here in NZ, I recon Bad Company 2 will be better for multiplayer tho
