I’m not the biggest first person shooter fan, lets get that out of the way to start. I am however a sucker for advertising and i’ll admit that I got caught up in the hype for Modern Warfare 2 (Killzone 2 and Halo: ODST). I’ve been playing games longer enough to be able to finish any type of game but since yesterday when I loaded up Modern Warfare 2 (MF2) I just don’t think I have what it takes to finish it.
I’m up to the fourth or so mission, the one after the airport scene (which to be honest I didn’t have any feeling for, good or bad) and to say that i’m confused is speaking lightly. The first three missions I just sort of ambled forward hoping I was going the right way. I had to die a lot to figure out I wasn’t a few times. Now i’m in the slums of Rio and it’s really just a grind to get to the next checkpoint let alone the next mission. I just don’t think I care enough to grind my way through. I’m mad enough that this game wants me to grind my way through. I know it’s realistic to have people from all around shooting you but come on when I can’t see a things whats the point.
You know what! I’m starting to feel like this is bad game design rather then being crap. Infinity Ward are just lucky that the multiplayer is so nice and comforting that I don’t think i’ll find a reason to sell it.
