I love most sports, but football is the only one that if i watch I might get bored. I'm with Jezlad I like sport games, but I'm also with you other guys as after a while I do get very bored, and would rather play COD anyday!

I would think running round killing people after a while would get boring, but I haven't been as of yet...

Lol i can understand Jez's point on the fifa front. To any football fan games like fifa and fm10 (bit meh if you ask me, preferred 09 for some strange reason) are enthralling and can keep us occupied for months whilst they are tiresome to anyone else. I dont know why but I love it

On the MF2, I finished the single player with a friend in about two sittings. Neither of us understood the story whatsoever, it was ridiculous and rather underwhelming. Neither of us could understand why the russians and americans didn't nuke the crap out of eachother rather than an invasion

I enjoy online mode simply because their is alot of competition between me and my mates but once again it will become tedious after a while. Also I amrelative new to and thus terrible at FPS so its a bit of a running joke and i like to try and prove them wrong. Also its pitting yourself against other people and there is a certain buzz to it but maybe its because i've never really played video games, sports ones aside.

kudos to lillian thorne for the awesome sig

I've played it a fair bit in the last week, and, while first impressions were extremely positive (it looks fabulous, the range of weapons and new perks is great, the kill streak options are very impressive) the more I've played it the more I realise that they have actually screwed up the formula that made CoD4 the best shooter of all timer. As has been stated, the respawning is totally f**ked up, with people spawning right behind each other. Only this evening I respawned behind a guy, killed him, and after I took a step was killed by another guy behind me. Bullshit.

Another gripe is the seriously limited number of levels used in free-for-all, which I play quite a lot. So far I've only seen 6 of them used in ffa, Rust, Terminal, Highrise, Afghan, Estate, and Scrapyard. The lobby is also a pain in the ass, and I'm finding the connectivity to the online mode frustrating, getting thrown out of lobbies completely at random. I thought it was my connection, but I tested it with other games and it worked fine.

The campaign mode was ludicrously short, with the afore stated plot holes. All in all, when I add everything up, I find it extremely frustrating to play, and don't get the satisfaction I do from playing CoD4. They really went over the top trying to improve on perfection, but unfortunatley fell far short.

the problem is that people do not realize how nuclear warfare is fought, russian would never be able to nuke america and vice versa, they are 2 of the greatest military superpowers known to man, with the technology available to make nuclear war next to impossible with todays modern defense systems.

also there is casualties if somehow these defenses were lowered (a task as close to impossible as it can be), if america nukes russia, russia retaliates, casaulties on both sides would be beyond counting.

next is politics, if russia nukes america, every neighboring country to russia would go on high alert, and may retaliate themselves, meaning russia now has several fronts to contend with, and america would be unable to nuke russia because of the UN.

and there are dozens, maybe even hundreds of other reasons, most probably hidden from public eyes, but allot known, this BS about countries nuking the crap out of each other stems entirely from Hollywood, and overactive imaginations and poor education by the world.

Invasion also means the capturing of land and resources, something both russia and america are very interested in as evident from todays military and political climate.

I'm actually amazed at how wonderfully accurate and deep MW2 goes in that regard, they have avoided being a hollywood movie by doing this

and how is that?, do people not yet realize that silencers for shotguns and LMG's do actually exist in the modern world?

a little 5 second searching does reveal this to be true

Come on guys, let's not discuss the storyline in the open like that. Some of us would actually like to be surprised by the game when we get it.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Pro Evo > Fifa.
That's what this thread was about, right? :D

Also, Modern Warfare 2 is a pretty good shooter; action-packed, if a little short single player.
