i'm pissed at activision due to their removal of dedicated server support for MW2, so there was no way i'd ever buy the game...

but i did watch a playthrough on youtube. :P i have to say, the plot is one of the most ridiculous things ever. XD

i heard the airport scene was removed from the game for the russian release. that's understandable.

Fair enough about the plot. That's entirely a matter of opinion. But getting annoyed at dedicated server removal. That's almost bordering on petty.

well, considering that the game's main appeal is the multiplayer, and replacing dedicated servers with listen servers means GUARANTEED unbalanced play (host advantage)....it's kind of a big deal.

then again, if you're coming from the console side, P2P servers is all you know so it's not a big deal. ;)

Your a PC player? It suddenly becomes clear ;D! My apologies.

it's quite alright :)

it really seems that it's a reversal from IW's previous position, though:

Just beat MW2 on Veteran mode after beating it on Hardened.

Let me just say that I was wrong. MW2 should've been an 11/10. The single player campaign is truly spectacular and always keeps you guessing. Though to be honest,
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Also the "No Russian" level in that game was a bit gruesome. I can see why so many people freaked out about it. No biggy, though. It gives you the option to skip the mission and it also asks you at the beginning of the game if you would mind things like that. If you clicked "No", then it's your fault. Don't blame Infinity Ward.

Didn't see this topic coming up, but I knew something like this will pop up XD

Anyway, as long as players fallow the rating code for the age matter, the violence doesn't really seem a problem to me. It is okay to some blood stain around XD

FFT is the coolest place on the internet ^_^ wait...yeah ^_^

Well, there is a game called ‘The Labyrinth’. It's not exactly violent but more of horror.. N I did play some games over age limit when I was younger.. No harm done. Generally violent games are PG 15 unless they include some sexual thing.. So I'm fine to play now.

Blood's not exactly repulsive to me, killing n all were okay- Those games which people consider violent are fun, except it's a bit annoying when it's me who is being shot to death or being killed..

I'm not gonna play that at all for the fact that it doesn't follow the Divine Comedy WHATSOEVER.

Never tried, but still sounds worth a try.. Hmm, violent games are kinda useful in a sense that they r good for stress relieve.

The Divine Comedy is an epic poem written by Dante Alighieri in 1308 AD. It's composed of over 14,000 lines of poetry which are divided into three canticas:
Inferno,  Purgatorio, and Paradiso.

In none of them did Dante fight the seven deadly sins(physically, that is).
