    Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

    OK. So I was being a total loser and decided to wait in line at Futureshop here in Calgary AB, Canada for the midnight release of MW2. So while waiting in the cold (-5 or so), and in a large lineup, I get to witness some of the game while standing. The Playstation bandwagon with hot chicks dressed in military getup, where handing out these tickets. I grab the ticket and go into the bus to play. Kinda cool I suppose (killing the civilians was kind of fun), but was it worth the wait?

    I head back out and low and behold............the line did not move an inch. So I continue waiting and I have some people behind me talk about why they shouldn't be in line but are too scared to be at home alone (they are with their boyfriends) because they just watched that horrible movie called "Paranormal activity" (Might I add the movie was crap and was not even scary at all. Actually, I think Polterguist scared me more then that trash movie). I turn around and use my whits to make everyone else look like douche's and or tools. Yeah, I'm cool.

    So it was around 0002h on Tuesday morning and the line started to move a bit. I found out from a local spy (whom might I add should be asleep cause he has school in the morning and he is only 14 years old), that they where only letting in 5 people at a time. So after waiting 25min, I get in. I then wait in line at the counter behind 3 other people. I finally get up to the lady at the country at approximately 2 mins wait, and I ask "Do you have the PC version?" Cashier chick replies "No, we did not get any copies of the PC version". I was furious. I wanted to jump over the counter and punch her face. But, I cannot hit a woman (cause its wrong guys, unless she looks like a man and she hits first), and it was not her fault. So, to make my evening at least somewhat successful, I bought the PS3 version. Just to throw it out their, I hate playing First Person shooters on a console. The Controllers suck just as hard as a native hooker with no teeth.

    I get back home, throw the disk into my PS3 and away I go. The game starts off showing a bunch of Afghanies being trained on how to use a rifle. Your character then shows them how to use the rifle. Then it moves on further into the conflict in Afghanistan. After that, you play the mission about killing civies. And blah blah blah (I wont ruin the game for you).

    But here is what I am going to get into. It was not worth the wait for 30 mins in the cold, or the 60 bucks it cost me (damn I am stupid and now poor). The game has a good premise and some missions are fun. But it was short and not all that sweet. I mean, I expected at least more then a stupid cliffhanger ending that means absolutely nothing for me other then the fact that the developers are going to create a 3rd Modern Warefare just to milk the **F&!*@1 series (sorry for my rude language). Not just that, my internet provider (telus) is a douchenozzel and now it is difficult to even connect to the PSN network just so I can play the game online.

    But, once you beat the game, there is an unlock-able. Some stupid special forces mode that I did not even bother to play, as it sounds gay. But you do get to play Co-op on it with a buddy, so unless you got friends (I think I do), then it may be fun.

    The graphics of the game are nice. I the blood splatter to the fire and water effects are nice. Kind of like in Bioshock (if anyone of you here has played that), would know your vision can get clouded by the water. Cool eh?

    Anyway, this game is worth a purchase, unless it is for less then 60 bucks (less then 50 would be better). But just wait, there will be another one for a milking good time.

    Why can't I play the Russian invaders? Why would I want to play a game where I kill my own country?

    No. It is not in the game.

    They are getting rid of that mission. As it was offensive in my opinion, it is just a video game. Face it, like most western movies, Russians are mostly the bad guys (or the germans) and a lot of them get killed off.

    I played online today, kind of boring to be honest.

    I have already played a cracked copy on my PC, wich I downloaded using Bitorrent
    gameplay is good, but the entire storyline makes nonsense.
    To be honest I prefer COD4. Everything was more realistic, exept for the stolen Russian warheads.
    Infinity Ward dosen`t even have the minimal idea about what Spetsnaz are.

    Stupid game, should be outlawed. There is a level in it could "No Russian", you play as a terrorist and kill everybody at an airport. They don't even throw any cops at you really till the last part, OMON came. I found it offensive, I am not even Russian [ethnic Serb living in America ] but I found ti sickening.

    The entire world would never allowe a game to come out if you flew planes into an American building, but they allow you to play terrorst killing Russians. There country to this day deals with terrorsim, their people experniced it much more than Americans. Yet, did they care? No, of course not.

    Russia should make game just like this, but turn it around.

    Why you guys can`t just enjoy a good game? (this one is not a good game though and it`s not worth 60 bucks either)

    Who cares if you`re "killing" russians or americans, if the gameplay is enjoyable, the graphics are superb and the plot is good (and the game must be as close to reality as possible, as long as this does not affect the gameplay). Modern Warfare 2 was not the best game I`ve played but it was a good one. (I am talking about the PC version)

    Personally, I think the Battlefield franchise is better than Call of Duty.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops portrayed Spetsnaz a bit better (they apparently recruited a former Spetsnaz to do all the stunts), but if you're looking for an unrealistic story line, look there, apparently Spetsnaz were issued AK-74s in 1968 xD

    Better than most computer games that don't seem to realise there are any Russian rifles other than the AK-47.

    I still like the old Operation Flashpoint Red Hammer game, and Crysis is fun with all the weapon modifications though the AK is a North Korean weapon it is still fun.

    Well they do have some game developers of their own.

    GSC is Ukrainian but there are Russians working for them, and you might have heard about their old game called Outbreak... which I thought was very underrated.
    They have also done the Stalker series but that is set in the Ukraine.
    ...the number of walk throughs I have read for STALKER that talk about the military soldiers in the game as being Russian is amusing and a little sad.

    Also there was talk of the Russian government spending money on a game to promote the Russian Armed forces a bit like "Americas Army".

    Personally I think such a game would be very useful if you made it accurate enough that you could use it for training as well as recruitment. Obviously a cut down version available free, with a more complicated and in depth simulation including artillery and airpower etc etc for military use.
