This was the first review from Yahtzee that I did not think was hilarious, but not in a bad way but in a way in which I completely agreed with everything he said. There were no great exaggeration or hyperbole in this one just the Lord's truth.
The game is a 8/10 game with a rapid fan base. I picked it up first day ; not first midnight but first late morning so I was quite excited ; and after looking at how pretty things looked I thought about how I do not care about anyone... about how stupid it was to be in the states because there was no story during all the "We are under ATTACK" levels.
I loved the first Modern Warfare but this just felt like a bit more spit-shined rehash, story rehash, gameplay, plot twists, first person getting murdered, etc... REHASH!
I played through "co-op" with a friend following the stunningly lacking and plebeian single player, but "co-op" is too nice a phrase for chunks of level rehash (I sure am using that word a lot, eh, if the shoe fits...) it was mildly entertaining but felt like some kind of bot team versus mode, no story or anything to flesh like they made it sound like it would be.
Then I jumped into multiplayer... and after two hours and a few level up's jumped right back out. It looked a bit A BIT nice and kill cams were more detailed but it was still the same thing I spent nearly a hundred hours on the first time I played it... when it was called MODERN WARFARE!
This is a bit of a textzilla rant, but I was just so happy to hear someone felt the same about it as me, it is an okay evolutionary (not revolutionary) derivative sequel to an impressive (for its time) game.
