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.
