Wow, Loved CoD4 and haven't played this one yet. Might go and buy it.

EDIT: Bought!

Go and check some stores maybe? I just checked a popular store here in Sweden and COD4:MW cost 249SEK for 360 and 239SEK for PC (GOTY Edition with 4 extra maps). That is about $30 or 23.

Well over here in the UK it is shown as 14.99 so I could not resist buying it.

Meh, game is ok.

COD4:MW was much better in my opinion.

Maybe it's just me but after playing all these other games, especially Crysis, I just can't get into ultra-scripted games anymore

HAVE to go through this corridor, HAVE to kill x number of germans in this room, CANNOT open doors yourself.

Meh.

Crysis ftw !!!

Linear games usually make for more exciting and cinema-like experiences... open-world games make for slower, more immersive experiences. Both are awesome when done right, and in my opinion CoD does linear right.

I know, but WAW is much more linear than previous COD games, from what I have seen on the first 3 levels.

It's almost annoyingly so.

I would get this if I didn't already have a copy that was included in the eVGA 9800 GT I bought a couple months ago.

Of all the linear WW2 shooters I have played, this was easily my favorite (a lot better than CoD2).

Crysis was as scripted as any COD game. Dunno where this great opinion of Crysis came from as some open ended game. I'd say if you want open ended then GTA IV would easily win that catagory. Crysis was a tech demo with an ok story. COD games are always amazing stories. I loved the end of COD4. COD WAW was a great SP experience too. Both are much better than Crysis or Warhead.

You guys have your own sub forum. Now get back in there

COD games always have "great stories?" Hmm, I am willing to bet many people would argue with you on that.. CoD gets the action/shooting right, the stories are pretty minimal (well, when I think about it, MW had a passable plot).

Okay, bought it, it downloaded fine and I started playing it last night. So far I'm not sure if I like it or not. The first mission had a really tight playing field, as in I couldn't go off the track much without hitting the invisible wall. The second mission was better but I'm still not sure if it's a keeper, that being I play it more than once, or a throw away. Will update after I play it more.
