Wow. This completely blew my mind. I don't think I've ever played a shooter worth it's salt with portions on American soil. Freaking outstanding. This has doubled my excitement for this game.

Wow.. someone referenced Glenn Beck and they weren't using the words "is a complete moron" or "stain on humanity" after his name...   That fact alone scares me. "
It was implied im sure. "

Wow, someone slipped a political discussion into a video game discussion. Way to go! Cause that's what I want when I turn to video games, a discussion about politics instead of an escape from reality.

im sure this game will be great for people who love this kinda thing, but really....this trailer did nothing for me.   That being said, i would love to enjoy an fps game, but a game like killzone2 left a really bad taste in my mouth....uggggh killzone2 *shrugs*

My interest in this game's campaign just tripled. COD4 was a great shooter, but the campaign was totally Tom Clancy-esque in its boringness (To be fair, it had some outstanding narrative here and there.). Good to see IW isn't afraid to fuck some shit up.

I would normally say: Hey, clueless twits: why don't you shut it and take your broken, tired, empty political boilerplate out of my video game forum?
 
But since that time has passed: Oh noez, the world hates the USA! Whatever will we do? Maybe if we elect a complete puss that apologizes to everyone during every speech he gives (and he gives a lot of them), they'll stop. That worked in 1976 didn't it?

"
You are forgetting the dealiest war in American history took place on American soil!  (civil war)
 
This story looks so preposterous in a bad way, trying to act like its high concept when it had no deep message. It might as well be another generic war movie considering the campaign is only going to last around 5 hours. Prepare for disappoinment

Pretty good trailer. I don't think it's necessarily supposed to have a huge "message" against the U.S. in general, but against modern conflict overall. Oh well. I don't care what "moral" the story is supposed to have, I just want some exciting, solid gameplay.

That's what I'm inferring from the lines too. I really liked this trailer. The new villain seems pretty awesome.

Your right, political hatemail has no place in a videogame forum. 
 
Anyway, your right again it better to shit all over everyone, shoot your guns in the air like you just dont care:-). Its better to be negative, and not give the new president a chance, because what has he done fore ME lately. No no no things were better in the good old days with god old G. W., there was a man who new how to, drink, hold "god" speaches, be religious, scare people with nasty orange allert on the domesday-clock and use money:-).... Those were the good old days. 
Why oh why did things have to change, oh what a shame. Praise the lord mighty Jebus, why has thou taken mighty G. W. from us in this time of need:-) 
 
Lets all not think about tomorrow and play another videogame! Jehaaaaaaaaaw

@Three0neFive:
no shit sherlock.  If everyone thought this way, we would have only one COD game.  I am aware of what it will be like, but still would have liked to see the improvements , ( if any ) that the makers of this game have made.  Call me crazy but before I fork out my hard earned cash, I like to see the goods.  I am sure you just go to a car dealership and buy a car without looking at it or taking a test drive because it looks like a car... duh....

I watched this plenty of times, and well I cannot wait to play the game. But, I really hope that don't use this as their intro to this game. Only because Infinity Ward used one of their ads for the CoD4MW opening  and it really got annoying.

I am the only person in the world who thinks that CoD 4 had awful shooting combat and an annoying leveling-up system.

Oh. My. Shlong... this game looks freaking good. I was a really big fan of the Modern Warfare and i am really looking forward to this! 
 
Only thing that bugs me is the whole D.C invasion... okay it is kinda cool, but if i wanted a really big war i would buy COD 5! 
 
Perhaps it's like the flashback mission in Modern Warfare, but this is a flash forward...or an online map (which would be epic)

The capital attack could just be a multiplayer map or some sort of "flash forward" mission...

It always cracks me up watching somebody wearing a suit while carrying a machine gun & robbing a bank (or whatever that guy was doing).  It seems you would want to wear either jogging clothes or military gear for serious bank robbing, not a suit...unless that's what you want to be buried in.

Seeing the capital all messed up and and being over-run, makes me feel all giddy and epicness inside. Should be a awesome chapter to defend the US.

Fuck you, Infinity Ward.
 
The fact that you would even release a bastardised PC "version" is an insult.
 
If you just came out and said "console is where the money is, we aren't making PC games anymore. Goodbye." you might retain some respect.
 
But no, you have to treat PC users as if we're the same mewling cabbages that make up the majority of the console playing demographic. Twelve year olds and soccer moms who have no idea they are being fleeced and wouldn't know a dedicated server from a Wallet Inspector.

@Zatoichi_Sanjuro: Don't you think you're being a little bit harsch. Sure there might be some flaws to this game such as limited customisation (gamestyles, obviously not the characterstuff lol), I mean think about it. IW is one of the most dedicated gamestudios out there... Besides everything is'nt a 100% confirmed yet. 
 
With a risk of speaking out relevans, there is this unfairnes about gamecontent. Games released to (PC) usually ends up with mods, new maps and even editors of wich i am sure is easy to apply to a console as well, extending the life of the game in general. At the same time we pay up to 200 SEK extra... That's unfair.
649 sek = 360 Game, upon release.  Give or take ofc.
479 sek = PC Game, -||-

If the game as a whole is an anti-war message (not saying I think it is, just that it could be), it's as if maybe in the end, the Americans lose, or all of society in war will pretty much die out. Which is kinda dissapointing. I don't know, I just don't see with the way this is going, (as I see it so far) will make everyone content with the conclusion. Although I do hope for a whole new level of emotion in a game, which this looks to pass any I've seen before it. Maybe that's also why they wanted Hans Zimmer to do the score...
