2 Calling this a shooting game is a JOKE!!!PlatinumNexus | 05/02/2010 | See all PlatinumNexus's reviews (15)When I first brought this game i couldnt have praised it more. This is mainly due to the fact that most people who got the game on release day play shooting games properly. Now that most people have it, I just find it a JOKE to call this a shooting game. Dont get me wrong if people played this game properly, like just after release it would be brilliant. Fact is i can count the deaths on 2 fingers that occur from being SHOT in each match. It seems that the only thing people use guns for is to attach a grenade launcher and then either use that, or knife people. This game is a brilliant game spoilt by people who wont play a shooting game properly. I prefer the good old days of the original xbox the home of the best online shooter ive played yet (Rainbow Six 3) for the simple reason you were only ranked by kill ratio and everyone was friendly, yet on COD: MW2 there has rarely been a match where i havent had insults thrown at me and a friend for no reason whatsoever. Also COD is simply a cheater heaven where their so obsessed with their rank they will cheat so they can go up that extra level... CLEVER YOU!!! Funny thing is since Rainbow Six 3, the best shooter ive played was a call of duty, call of duty 3. All i hear is it getting slagged off yet that game i never ran into nasty people and i always had fun because it was FUN and SIMPLE, with no complicated ranking system, weapon attachments or stupid perks, which i think are just glorified power ups and something for people who just cant play shooting games. All in all fun shooters have dissapeared and in place we have to play rank orientated games full of cheats and nasty people.With 95% of my deaths comming from grenades, grenade launchers or knifes its a JOKE to call this a shooting game. I give it 2 stars for the fact when i first got this game, it was brilliant until people brought this who quite simply are way too dedicated to ranking up.
