    We all know that this game failed to live up to its massive waves of hype - it didnt even come close. Its a good game, but wasnt anything amazing. Best thing going for it was the graphics, take that away and its a pretty average FPS IMO. Online is terrible and bland and boring. No enough modes, maps and weapons. Got boring really fast. Thats pretty what killed it for me, the game was very barebones...I mean 8 maps cmon.

    I thought everything was fine but they took too long to fix the lobby/joining stuff. It took them months to realize that when you joined a friend's game you wanted to be on their team? :eek:

    There were enough modes, but the round robin with all of them wasn't very fun. Going 7 different game modes in a row is a good idea until one team wins the first 4 and the game becomes boring for both teams.

    There are enough weapons, they are just not balanced enough so everyone ends up defaulting to 2-3 of the weapon times (sniper, shotgun, rockets)

    8 maps, but they came out with a lot more pretty soon after release. The second map pack is pretty good imo.

    You're not actually running through them. The camera is from the view of the gun so your gun is just passing by theirs :rofl:

    controls are okay. it's the motion blur to hide the fact that it's only at about 30fps that kills it for me, because it makes your aiming jerky, no matter how smooth you want to be

    plus, the single player was truly lacking. especially the friendly NPCS
    rico has to be the worst teammate ever

    I wanted to hear what people had to say about this game. I wasn't a huge fan of the first one, I might just pass this one up.

    it didn't live up the hype because ppl hyped the fuck out of it

    sloppy controls and excessive motion blur. it's one of the few games to give me motion sickness.

    Having to unlock all the weapons online, didn't like the level layouts. I also didn't like the turret building.

    The levelling system where you always go up no matter what, didn't like that in COD4 either.

    I thought it looked like "Yet Another Generic FPS" to begin with from all the promo materials... then I played the demo... :ugh: Dog-forsaken controls, I tell you...

    Maps were ok. Weapons were neat, especially the lightning gun. Multiplayer was cool but I was way behind the curve.

    the lightning gun is probable the most gratifying weapon to use in the game. you just need to shoot near an enemy and you get to watch them roast to death.
