Not really relevant but I wanna put my thoughts down for the singleplayer that I recently played at a friends placed.
Basically a polished turd. Overall nothing particularly wrong to a significant extent but nothing particularly right either. Shooting mechanics felt off for most weapons and I ended up only using a select few throughout. The game is also mostly just recycled over and over again too, nothing much we haven't already seen gameplay wise already but I liked the helicopter missions, especially the one when assaulting the boat. Lots and lots of scripting too but not to the extent of MW1 I don't think. Levels are still really tiny. There were also balancing issues where you get owned by sheer numbers and you constantly die from no fault of your own. Moronic AI both ally and enemy to boot. (The amount of times an enemy charges suicidally into our ranks and starts shooting me while my allies ignore him, rage inducing.)
I liked the story though, thought it was really well done. The ultimate revelations of the ship at the end were pretty underwhelming but everything leading up to it was extremely well done. I started to see it coming a bit off cause i'm just awesome that way
but I liked how they did things that at first you'd think they were just lazy developers like Reznov being behind you but only Mason jumping off to safety only to discover it was all intentional. Nice touches.
Was it bad that the most fun I had in the entire game was the WW2 level?
Oh I just don't really care about the modern setting.
