    Was just going to order COD MW2 for PC when I saw the reviews...

    -2 stars on Amazon from 154 reviews (including 96 ONE stars)
    -3 stars on Play

    Jeez....is it really that bad (on PC)?

    its great in single player but the multiplayer side has been ruined somewhat, mw1 still owns on that side of the game. Still a great game tho.

    Probably because someone told them they could have got it free on the torrents. 11GB mind with 40,000 trying to download it so quite a wait.

    The lack of dedicated servers destroys the multiplayer for a lot of the fairly serious PC gamers hence a lot of people aren't happy about it.

    :-D

    I know I'm gonna get flamed for this but what the heck, after 5 pints of John Smiths tonight I don't care

    War gaming on consoles with a joypad in small, limited number servers is for kids.
    War gaming on PC's with a keyboard and mouse with up to 64 players online (al BF2) is for grown ups.

    The PC version or MW2 seems to have been ported fom the console version with seriously curtailed online play - which for PC gamers is a big kick in the Goonies. It would have been better if they had delayed the PC version until these issues had been resolved to give PC gamers the online experience they crave and are used to. I've not played 5 minutes on single player on BF2 on my PC as it's NOT what the game is about. War gaming on the PC is all about joining a busy server (hopefully with TeamSpeak or Vent) and shooting real people around the world from Copenhagen to Canada. For PC gamers, MW2 has had is a severly curtailed and therefore worthless game.

    hahaha

    I don't think the issue was anything to do with porting it from the consoles, I think it was a lot more to do with limiting piracy. Whatever the reason I think it's a bad one and worryingly they're not on their own either, the lack of LAN play in RA3 drove me to utter frustration and just gave up on it in the end as trying to play with another PC in the same room was too problematic despite both copies being legal. Doing it illegally would actually have been a lot more convenient!

    It's a great game on PC

    Its probably the worst game ever made

    hence the 10,000 threads opened in the space of 2 weeks on this site alone regarding excited children who have no goonies.

    I guess this seems to sum up peoples opinion about this issue

    seems unfair though to give out one star reviews based on the online aspect of the game. even if the online play is compromised 2/3 stars seem to be more appropriate if the single player is good in itself.

    If the dedicated server removal is an issue - Then you'll be crying like the rest of them.

    If however that doesn't bother you, then it'll be fine. MW2 is a cracking game.

    Lets say the egg BF2...became the chicken when RP was made :-D

    360 and ps3 multiplayer is ruined by the same approach. Play only the maps we say you can and when you don't want to play that map and you decide to exit and look for another map you might like to play it counts as a loss in your stats. Terrible system for all now. So at least now it's fairer. lol:

    ^^^^^^^

    This.

    Listen if your like me and wanted the game only for MP then you will not be disappointed because in a nutshell it bloody well r0x! I thought P2P servers on PC would be dire but it's been spot on touch wood!

    The thing with this is now you can just slide into a match where as before for me it was a pain updating the server list, then looking through only to connect to one of a million Hardcore servers!

    The guns, perks, killstreak's and care packages really have made this an absolute joy to play, i don't think i'll be going back to COD4 any time soon!
