Can anyone comment on the story? One of the things I loved about CoD4, and that kept me from being annoyed with its linear gameplay, was that the story and characters were so strong. I know this one is supposed to be "hardcore" and some trailers make it look good, but... are the characters there? Basically, is there a Captain Price in the lot?
The story isn't all that great. It jumps from the pacific theater to the eastern front in Europe basically at will, and naturally they're bound by history so there's no way to make a connection between the two theaters like in CoD4. The voice acting is good, but there's no real connection or camaraderie you feel as you play though. You'll end up playing most of the SP missions in co-op.
But don't get me wrong, it's still enjoyable. Like CoD4 it's short and sweet, so it's doubtful you'll get bored as long as you're not expecting an absolutely mind-blowing experience like the last CoD game.
