A bitter slap in the face of PC gamers.
If you have been living under a rock or you simply don't follow the gaming community, you probably don't know that the dedicated servers have been taken out of the PC version of the game.
That's right, no more dedicated servers.
It has been replaced by IW.net and an automatic matchmaking system. Admin control over hackers has been replaced by Valve's VAC anti-cheat system. Don't get me wrong, I love valve to death...but VAC doesn't work most of the time. In TF2, we rely on admins to ban the hackers.
Say hello to disconnecting hosts and laggy connections. Say goodbye to custom maps, mods, server rules, etc.
It is truely a sad day for all PC gamers. The PC version is now the EXACT same as the console version. Do you like playing with 64 people? Too bad, guess you have to manage with 18.
As a PC gamer, I ask of you...please don't buy this game. What's funny is that activision will turn it around by looking at the statistic saying it proves PC gaming is in a decline and not worth it. It is really sickening to my stomach that these people would do such a thing to us PC gamers. Just sickening.
The single-player is way too short to be bought for 60 dollars. Borrow it from a friend when he's done. You'd have to be crazy to buy the game for the single-player, what is that like 10 dollars an hour? Christ.
Gameplay doesn't vary much, and in MP is further disbalanced by retarded things that just seem to make the game "easier". For example, 25 kills in a row gets you a nuke that kills everyone on the map. The airstrike and heli were already dumb. Want to turn em off, can't...there are no dedicated servers.
IW has made the game so easy, a caveman can do it.
Please do not buy this game.
