Story was a huge dissapointment for me. Just was expecting more "wow" moments I had in Uncharted 2.
 
However the multiplayer is amazing and even though I got bored of Call of Duty 4's multiplayer, this one seems very fresh and exciting.

great review, great game

One of the best video reviews Giant Bomb has ever done. Much like MW2 strikes a delicate balance between arcade and tactical shooters, so too does Giant Bomb manage to maintain a professional tone while still coming across as personable. Well done.

Can't get my fucking copy yet... And now Sainsbury's are sold out, I am pissed off...
 
EDIT: Scratch that, my dad got it for me, what a legend :D

sooooooo keen to play

Posted by SleepyDoughnut

Man my excitement was a little reserved with all the overhype and overconverage giving a bad taste in my mouth, but I'm getting pumped now. Boy that multiplayer looks fun. Too bad I'll have to wait until winter break since my parents didn't let me bring my xbox to college :(

I really hate that Metacritic lists this as a 100 score.

OMG TITS!
 
... oh wait....

Posted by Radeya

Great review. Can't wait to get the game!

Edited by Death_Burnout

Check out that friggin' last Shotgun!
 
I actually really wanna play this, unexpectedly, i thought i could just let it slide for a few weeks but hell no.

Edited by Jedted

Am i the only one NOT excited for this game? 
  
I'll admit, the ability to shoot down UAVs does sound pretty cool though.  I geuss the trick would be to shoot em down before they spot you so it must be pretty hard.

This video review pisses all over ign's. Nice job jeff.

Posted by CashBailey

Excellent review, Jeff.
 
I shall be purchasing this fine product tomorrow.

Posted by Chaossebba

I'll most likely get this for the PC despite the whole server controversy.

@Jedted: You're not the only one not excited. I just find it way overrated and repetitive.

woah woah woah woah.
 
i had to rewind when jeff said this: "it's around 5 hours long".
 
what?
 
5 hours for a game of this magnitude? sure its not about the SP but are you crazy? dude screw that.

Pretty much as expected given the length of the COD 4. I agree, its pretty weak, especially for those mainly interested in the single player (such as myself) but all the COD kids only care about the multi anyway so they likely won't even notice.
Posted by TwoOneFive

wow you guys banged this out!

Edited by Lazyaza

So basically its the same as the last game but with prettier graphics and a predictable truckload of extra stuff?
Still not my cup of tea then, good to know, thanks Jeff.

I am with you, in fact ARMA 2 looks and sounds cooler than this.
MW 2 cannot beat this:

Also the fact that MW 2 does not let you have dedicated servers or mod it just make it inferior to cod 4.

Some of the additions in the multiplayer make the game...too game-y and silly, pushing it further away from the tactical shooter ideal.  Why not just put Mario and Sonic in there...and blue shell bonus for the worst player?  Actually, there is a blue shell equivalent...a homing RPG, for fucks sake.  Different strokes, and so on, but I really hope they don't do this to future BF releases, simply because of MW's broad appeal...

What's a UAV? I prefer BF, did you know you can actually fly stuff in that game (BLOWS MY MIND......)

But MW2 has a homing RPG...oh wait, that's actually stupid.

You can also do that in ARMA 2

@kingando420: It shows the positions of enemies in multiplayer. 
 
But I agree whole-heartedly with this review; I've been playing it since Saturday myself and it just blows COD4 out of the water. The campaign, while still short, is crazy fun and has some absolutely incredible set-pieces and one incredibly atmospheric level. 
 
The multiplayer is just magnitudes of awesome above COD4. There's just so much going on at any one time, it feels a lot more hectic. As well as one thing Jeff really didn't touch on, the vertically of a lot of the levels. In the previous games everyone was usually on the same plane for the whole match, with a few tiny exceptions. This time there's all sorts of roofs and walkways, second floors and balconys that people can climb up. You need to be really aware of your surroundings this time; prepare for lots of "cheap" deaths from players who know the maps better than you.

Meh, this honestly still doesn't get me really excited for the game. It looks like a neat improvement on their old formula to be sure, but when the main design philosophy for anything starts to lean in the direction of "dude, explosions!" I tend to lose my interest fairly fast. 

Posted by Jaqen_HGhar

Meh. One game I'll never play I guess. I am not into the MP, and if I where I would definitely not buy it, as I would have bought it on PC. But only five hours SP? And it just seems like a normal shooter with some cinematic bits thrown in. I just cannot see why so many want this game.

Agreed.  For some reason I'm not to into it right now.
Posted by Dethfish

Yeah....I really want to play this now.

Posted by dagas

Sounds good, but I have more than enough games to play already and I bet i'd be owned my people who played MW1 for hundreds of hours.

Posted by Ghostiet

After watching the review, I kinda feel a bit better about it at points - mostly about the co-op. Still, the lack of dedicated servers is a shitbowl (I lost every single reason to upgrade my PC) and I feel Killzone 2 is better paced for me with the mode-mash-up. So sorry, MW2 - Uncharted 2 first, then Ratchet & Clank, then Borderlands and maybe MW2. Rented. Someday.

the VR came up faster than Gamespot..sweet!!now if only i can find this in Singapore..unlkely..:-(                                                                                                                                                                                
EDIT: FOUND THE GAME HERE MAN!!double price coz its imported copy but totally worth it..popping disc now..see u after i finish it!!                                                                                                                          

Posted by TheDoorman

Dude you can shoot down UAVs.
Posted by Parsnip

5 hours, that's kind of short. I was hoping that they'd make the single player longer this time after the shortness of cod4. Oh well, sounds like a rental.

Posted by Shaanyboi

I'm sure it's very well-crafted... but the "America F*** YEAH" attitude and the fact that this is still JUST ANOTHER MILITARY SHOOTER don't make me feel like i need to get this anytime soon

Posted by IKenjiI

This game just killed my 360, E 74 message and i only got to play 1 hour... Took a day off work and stood in the rain for hours to get it.

Posted by SumDeus

I've had it since thursday, most fun I've ever had playing a game.

Posted by Kohe321

Great review Jeff! Getting this as soon as possible!
