I was a little worried with the earlier talk about this game being a prequel, but even though I don't want to buy another COD game having not touched Black Ops in months, the continuing adventures of Price and Soap are just too enticing to not check out.
Can't help but buy this game
I was this way with Black Ops, I told myself I was done with COD, but after seeing some of the game from a friend I went out and picked it up, but I ended up only playing it for a little over a week.
I'm telling myself I don't want to buy MW3, and this time I probably won't "crack" like I did last year, seeing as how there are going to be way more games coming out around then.
Skyrim is coming out the same week, I'm getting that instead :\ i'm burnt out on Call of Duty.Well this settles it. Skyrim is a much larger priority for me that MW3. I'll just give it a rental a couple months later and blast through the sp.
Given the pedigree of the studios involved the game will probably be fantastic. I wouldn't mind getting it for the campaign ,not really to see how it ends but to see how they get to the end. The single player in MW2 might not have made any sense but it was a damn fun ride from start to finish (except maybe the Brazil level).
I dont know, i think im gonna buy it none the less, though MW2 was a bit of a downer with the horrible matchmaking and such on the pc. But COD still remains one of those only franchises, that still has that fast paced quake feel to it. Which i really like in multiplayer shooters (but maybe that's just because it still has some quake tech in the engine :p )
If the campaign is actually worth playing, Spec Ops isn't just a re-hash of the Modern Warfare 2 gametypes on different maps, and the multiplayer makes at least some attempt to differ itself from previous Call of Duty's...in any way...I'll probably cave and buy it.
I'll most likely rent it or borrow it from a friend to play through the campaign, maybe take a glimpse at the multiplayer. However, if the multiplayer isn't massively different from previous iterations, I'll gladly be buying Skyrim instead.
I feel like this game for me will be for CoD what DA2 was for Bioware in terms of my lasting interest. CoD 4 was an AWESOME game, one of my favorite MP shooters of all time, probably second only to TF2, MW2 was a hoot, but they need to keep makin' interesting and engaging games or I'm just going to give up on the series, and probably won't come back even if they make the perfect MW game. I'm hoping this won't be a DA2 situation.
@Laketown said:Indeed.you could just rent itOr just read the plot write-up on Kotaku?
I regreted buying MW2. I had some fun with it, but it wasn't my kinda game. I was incredibly tempted to buy Black Ops, but I ended up not buying it in the end. Now that I've already skipped BO, I think it'll be easier for me to skip this one too. I think I'll just go with Battlefield 3 this time.
for some reason i play every cod game after the midnight release and see how high i can manage to climb the leaderboards online before it all breaks. i play with a small crew so its always fun to see the new stuff they put in and learn the formula all over again. then i complain about how annoying some things are, take a break, and come back in a couple weeks and try again.
