Also (if anyone plays WoW and has been raiding ICC) We pulled two of the Valkries at the same time - cue 5 minutes of us fighting them with 40 adds, most of which were healers. Made my AOE so much more fun to watch

God, that trash is horrible.

I played MW2 for the first time last night. It's actually really good fun. I was expecting because of it's over-exuberant fanbase it was going to be overrated. But it's really not. Me and 3 friends just had a good time shooting the hell out of each other. :D

the story is good in the single player, the multiplayer is fun. everything else is pretty boring although there are some cutscene sequences which are fun

the story is rubbish (but who plays fps for the story, apart from bioshock) single player is boring, multiplayer isnt bad but timesplitters 2 perfected fps multiplayer years ago

The story's fucking shit.

They should stick to making the shooting and killing fun instead of trying to give it a lame storyline that looks like a three year old wrote it. Other games have good storylines and they do them well. MW1 had a fairly realistic, plausible storyline but MW2 was just ridiculous and frankly stupid. They really need new writers.

Sorry, but I don't buy into the hype of Timesplitters' games that it's fans have. It's decent at best.

single player is good but nothing to rave about but the multiplayer is nigh on perfect, on 2 and 3 anyway

Multiplayer really isn't perfect, or close to it (in my opinion.) I've played ti with friends many times and wasn't thrilled.

but they were bought by Crytek and have shelved the game until 'the market demands it'
