    BC 2 will be much better and also a great PC game. Dice will deliver after seeing what IW has done they can capitalize on it and make a mint.

    negatory brother. The difference is the review is based on an unbiased system, from a professional. Also, im not getting it based on the reviews. Never do, it is just a nice fact to state.

    Just for the record, that post was made in all good fun:toast:

    The multiplayer is tight, and fun. The multiplayer previously was loose, but fun.

    Not going to buy it now even if a later patch brings back dedicated servers I know where IW heart is and its not with the pc gamers. They should do strictly for the console kiddies now.

    That is the lowest reader average I have ever seen


    lets take a look at some of these:rolleyes:

    DIS IS DA WURST AME I AVE EVA PLAYED:p
    Multiplayer is pathetic compared to COD4
    Absolutely terrible.
    9.5? Try actually playing it on PC
    The Biggest Failure of 2009
    More money for less

    Its not that the game is bad, its just that its not worth 60 dollars in my opinion for a Call of Duty 5 Redux with less features and costs more than 5 did on launch, and the reader average shows that I am not alone with that thought.

    IGN and Gamespot gets paid for some reviews on higher hyped titles I think.

    Its not an unbiased system. Its based on advertising money. The same media giant fired a veteran reviewer because he wrote a review saying "Kane and Lynch" was a bad game. They had received a ton of advertising money for Kane and Lynch ads and after a warning to write a good review instead, he was fired for not saying good things about an advertised game.

    I am not saying MW2 is bad but I am saying the review system on these sites are full of sh!t.

    Even Toms Hardware did an article about the guy being wrongly fired and they are a really tame media source.

    Those reviews are not just pc people. I know a few guys that have it and say even worse things about the entire game. I am glad I saved my money .

    my only dislike with steam is when third party games screw up in offline mode.

    Company of heroes requires a disk if steam is in offline mode - great, if your game came from steam you dont have one.

    Lost planet (a steam exclusive) didnt even let you run SP in offline mode :(

    LOL When a crack is made and distributed by a release group it is a crack. If you choose to download the crack and use it, you are cracking the game with the crack given to you.

    So when I said, "they could always crack it" I was saying they could download the crack and crack it(cracking a game with a crack). The "crack" has been available since weeks before launch as you probably already know.

    Empire Total War also got groundbreaking reviews.... Professional game reviews have gotten to the point where I don't trust any other than Yahtzee's..... (yes they are that bad)

    You just said how the reviews are great, and that we should buy it, but we shouln't go by what other people tell us? lolwut?

    Lastly, I am a weak person for standing by my principals and not supporting a game that I have been waiting months for? Uh... ok?.... that doesn't really make sense... but ok.... :toast:
