Online Gameplay as good as MW2 ? Not IMO.
I love the campaign mode, there a few areas where you don't feel you're doing anything apart from going along a conveyor belt and pressing X when your told to, but thats only now and again. However i wanted to review the online aspect.
I've been having a blast online on the xbox and personally i don't think the game play is as good as it was on MW2.
The customisation features are great, also like the wager matches and the numerous types of online games there are.
Where i find the game falls down are - The guns have such a massive distinction from each other - The Ak74u is far to good imo. You can shoot someone with the Enfield be hitting them, and if that person has the AK74u they start shooting back and still kill you with body shots from mid range. Obviously a difference between weapons is required but there's taking it too far some guns are just useless and unfortunately they're the ones you start with.
The maps are too small there's people everywhere you can spawn and be shot straight away, sometimes you cant even move without being shot, most games you end up with 20 plus kills, and for me a whole lot more deaths lol.
A lot of the maps seem to be centred around an area which has nothing in it, you go into that area and get shot from every single direction, i don't see the point.
I felt with MW2 if you played tactically, sneaking around, camping when necessary and playing as "dare i say it" it was real, you could do really well it was more of a tactical game. Where as i feel with this game tactics are out of the window, its the more fire power and a lot of the times how lucky you are as to how well you do, its more of an arcade shooter.
If they had taken MW2 added the new customisable features and game types it would have been a far far superior game.
