Good game, but flawed too much.
I barely play this anymore, I bought this game hoping for a compelling story, wonderful multiplayer, and awsome graphics. And the game only delivered one of the threee
, great graphics, the other 2 are somewhat lost during the infinite respawns of enemys in story mode, or the people who yell out "YOU SUCK!!!" so much in multiplayer that you just want to bash your head into the wall. Both the story mode, and multiplayer are fun, but only in very short bursts for hte multiplayer, and story is only good when you replay the levels 4-5 times over, so you can actually understand whats going on and once that happens, you won't want to play it anymore because you'll resent the game for taking so damn long to get into it.
The story mode is just kinda bad, You play as a Marine who is raiding an middle eastern village, and S.A.S member Soap, whos out in russia killing Ultra-Nationalists. Now, what is an Ultra-Nationalist? The story never says, it just says, kill them, and hope you live through the process pretty much. The marine side has slightly more detail, your chasing after a terrorist who just overthrew the goverment and likely has a WMD. Both of them inter-tie, but at first you won't understand why your even playing soap until a few levels in the game, and even then, you'll still wonder why your playing him until the last mission of the Marine, which is when the story actually sets off.
The multiplayer, is pretty generic, Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, pretty much the same as every other FPS, and just like any other FPS, it has a level system, but the slight differnce is that you can unlock things for your character to be an even better badass! You start at level 1 only being able to pick a class, but as you level up to level 55 you'll able to create your class, and customize him anyway you want to the weapons he has on, to the perks you'll get (things that help your character, like Martydom drops a live grenade down to the ground when you die to kill the person who just killed you if he's close) pretty standard stuff, only thing new is the classes. Once you reach level 55 you can prestige, making you level 1 and you lose everything, Camo for weapons, perks, weapons, everything, just so you can "enjoy" leveling up your guy again, which isn't alot of fun once yu get into the 30s. The multiplayer is decent, but you can't get into any Cage Matches hardly without something asking for your help farming headshots for Camo that their going to lose when they prestige (if they chose too), which is pretty annoying unless you actually want to too.
Also, the multiplayer has no lag that I have ran into as of yet, which is a good thing.
The Graphics are really the redeeming quality of the game, they are just plain badass, enough said. Overall, this is a good game, but it just has way to many flaws.
~Story is good, but you have too play through the game a few times to actually get it
~Sound is excellent
~Multiplay is lag free
~Classes are fun to make.
>Multiplayer makes you want to kill yourself after awhile
>Once you beat the story and actually "get" it you won't want to replay it
>Game never explains why exactly soap was killing Russias anyways, yes they were gonna kill alot of people, but that doesn't happen until you have interfered.
>Respawing guys in story mode just ruin the game, you can stay in one spot and kill 100+ guys, but then realize thatif you just ran into their hidey hole and killed the two guys, you would have already been out of there 15 minutes ago.
This is a good game, but theres really no replay value after you get to a certain points, after that its just dull and boring.
