Don't get me wrong, looks nice and all, but to me, it sounds like 60$ for what is nothing but an upgrade to the last game. A bit the L4D2 bullshit.
As far as the game is concerned, I guess it'll please fan of the genre. Seriously, people seems to love cheap ass multiplayer where everything is about backstabbing people in every possible ways. Its a lot of fun in a way... but I don't know of a game that frustrates me with retarded death that I had no control to possibly avoid except dumb luck, and this goes over and over and over again.
I guess it does give you a feel of real life, because you know, in war, everything is far right? Too bad, games have to be as annoying as real life these days.
Anyway. I'd still get the game if it wasn't so pricey.
I don't really understand this paragraph. So, you want to be able to control the way you die?
Well, in a way, yes. I mean, what happened here, someone threw a grenade at me from far away and it explodes the very moment its close enough to kill me.
I couldn't even see where he was.
The result is: No matter what I could possibly do, no matter my skills, I was doomed. I died, and had no way whatsoever to get out of it.
There are lots of other things like that, but generally you can "protect" yourself with good positioning and knowing the map, and all that jazz. Still, too often I just felt I didn't just die because I wasn't good enough, but I was just "cheap shotted". Do note that I'm a Unreal Tournament kind of guy. I like in your face show off where skill determines the winner, not putting a knife in someone's back So its fair to say CoD is just not "my" style of shooter.
I still enjoy its incredible atmosphere, however. In multiplayer, the feeling that you are really at war is... well, just insane.

I've seen a few people complaining about this. Games have been this price for quite a long time, why are people still "surprised" at this?
Here, for me, because its just another CoD4. It doesn't even look different. I'm personally sick of gaming companies pretending they can just enhance a game, label it "new" and stick a 60$ price on it.
I paid 60$ (was actually 70$) for the first CoD4 and don't regret it, even if my 360 is broken now and I didn't play it that much, because it was really a new game.
Wow, just the fact that they limit the PC to console standards torques my jaws. I LOVE my PS3 but PC's are above consoles and they dont need to be limited to consoles. I hope borderlands does great, because thats the game ill be picking up instead.
