I’m remembering why I first bought Modern Warfare 2, after being so hesitant in buying it in the first place. Fun online, especially playing with friends. And that’s about it. There’s nothing really else substantial to it. Fun can only go so far before becoming repetitive and dull, so I’m remembering why I sold it…
I guess it comes down to what the game can offer me in the end. It’s just that I don’t feel like Modern Warfare 2 can offer me any more than what, 10 to 15 minutes before I start thinking it’s boring again? What’s up with that? Games, well modern games, especially games like Call of Duty really need to show longevity, maybe to some the quick pick up and play feel to the game gives it that longevity, but there is no substance to it. Activision have keep reeming out a dull online experience where other shooters seem to bring to life.
Of course I’m speaking of Bad Company 2. Online seems to just scream WTF at your face as you try and take cover, yeah try to, and if you do manage to get a good spot, surely in about 5-10 minutes expect a hailstorm of grenades, bullets and missiles to come your way. Or even a helicopter come crashing into and all over your body. It’s fun for that reason, there’s a fair bit of uncertainty when playing Bad Company 2. Feeling like you have to properly cover all flanking routes to make sure you don’t get any of those sneaky bastards trying to line up headshot from behind.
To be honest, it’s hard to camp, your constantly being forced to go forth into battle as the map area advances and with the destruction 2.o, it’s certainly a tense online experience. If Call of Duty had destructible environments and map progression then it would be the best fps out there. Oh well.
