FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What do these ratings mean?

when i bought this game, i wasn't all that sure if i should have or not. i got sick of WWII games after cod2: big red one. the last world war 2 game i enjoyed was medal of honor: rising sun. but to my surprise, this game is everything i expected it not to be. one thing i have realised is that somehow shooting people in the campaign gives a bigger sense of self-accomplishment than what call of duty 4 does, and somehow that makes all the difference.

The campaign is amazingly better than i expected. the old call of duties (especially cod3) had very boring campaigns which never made me want to keep playing at any point. but this one didnt really have any bad levels or boring moments. it may not be as cinematic as cod4, but as far as cinematics go, metal gear solid 4 is the best, so it doesnt really matter.

I haven't really had a chance to play the co-op mode, simply because the controllers are $100 australian (so 7 controllers are worth the price of an 80gb ps3? gimme a break), and i have attempted to play the only co-op but had a bad internet connection at the time and couldn't even get through the whole level without the playstation signing me out of the network. but from what i've played of it, it wasn't all that fun anyway. even when the connection was good, i never even gave the online co-op a thought.

The online part of the game is the only reason i bought it, and i'm not at all dissapointed so far. the thing that makes the call of duty games so addictive online is that they make you feel really good about yourself after killing just one person, if you can get a kill streak of even about 5, then you will want to own the game if you don't already. it's just so fun. however, i do agree with GR on the unwanted addition of tanks. i have always thought they would be a bad idea, and it turns out i was right. i have never used a tank, and frankly i dont ever want to. there are certain players who will just stay in the tank for the entire game and get easy kills while the rest of us have to kill the enemy while trying to avoid the tanks. the tank is definitely not a good addition, in fact, it's a setback.

The dogs, however, are one thing that i like. they will, most of the time, get you three or four kills if you can get the 7 kill streak needed to unleash them. and you cant really say its unfair to the other team beacuse they're not all that hard to kill.

This game does have it's flaws, but the online makes up for everything. The only real dissapointment is the tanks. the online mode is supposed to be the perfect part of the game, but there is a hole in that logic, but thankfully, not all maps have tanks, and at least call of duty: modern warfare 2 shouldn't have any tanks. hopefully 

if anybody would like to add me as a friend on the ps3 network (i know it wont work, im just hopefull someone will read this) my name is damo1337
