The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

What do these ratings mean?

Modern Warfare 2.5?

Alright well once again, I wasn't as gitty about this release as the last one seeing as Treyarch always takes the last MW and mods it up and the last one got old...QUICK.

As always I will start with the good and work to the bad.

The story mode is once again incredible with a good story line and crazy moments...Maybe too many action moments for my tastes but I'll deal with it. And once again the zombies are back for brrrraaaaiinnnnssss...and still really nothing has changed.

The graphics are a little lacking if you can tell, but my main concern and yes this is the bad part of the review is the online gameplay. Once again the lack of skill to kill someone is there and did they bring back the recoil from the COD: World at War for all the weapons because I can't hit the broad said of a barn. So really any good kills comes from up close. Oh and if any of you remember when I said camping was a problem...not anymore!!!! And is that a problem...kinda...

I'll explain....

Sure we all hate campers, but they're so many ways to get from one area to another that sniping is almost eliminated unless you play a defense based game and even then...have fun trying to hit something.

The perks are alright...To get the pro versions which don't seem like pro at all you have to do way more than before. That and once again the weapons...have no purpose. I am a support gunner...LMG user as you can say but I can't hit anything...okay well I'll spray through everything...wait I CAN'T!!! The hardened perk is useless because I have only found ten walls I can shoot through and barely hit or kill anyone!!

Also, did anyone notice since COD:MW2 that when you have the drop on two opponents and you shoot and kill one, when you aim at the next your chance of hitting or killing them is reduced greatly.

Also...I want more restrictions on these killstreaks...They still over power the game completely and mixed in with horrible respawn points that I feel still haven't been fixed...I could careless about this game.

I am not going to buy another COD until they fix the base problems of ACCURACY. What is the point of playing a FPS when you can't shoot and kill what you aim at? I am very disappointed in this great game series. I understand that you want to make better from Modern Warfare, but keep the base skilled gameplay and then add on from there. They are giving the noob or less skilled player the chance to play, which makes skilled gamers like us a headache when we know they only are killing us because the game devolpers want EVERYONE BE GREAT...

And on that note, I'm going to get 20 bucks at the exchange and buy some beer.
