Yeah the blood looks stoopid man yo dunnit?
What's with the Linkin Park, Lies, Greed and Misery song? Are they trying to sex up violence like they done show in that documentary Fahrenheit 9/11?
I hate this kind of thing. In my mind it's extremely crass to have a heavy metal/alternative rock track playing alongside acts of violence. EA should not be pumping it out in their marketing material. If you like high octane music along with your FPS gaming then that's fair enough, it's a personal choice. Just don't sell your games like that.
I would use a vomiting smiley but there isn't one so I'll use the mad one instead,
. There that's better.
Okay, all self-righteous indignation asides, the game (without the soundtrack) looks sort of all right if you take away the arcade-like CODMW online fast-play element. At least the graphics are all right and there are silly/nice gadgets to use, which gives the game a less serious bent. And maybe that's why I'm being all Daily Mail, is modern warfare meant to look like that? All cartoon violence almost?
Have EA got it totally wrong here and gone way too far down the route of satisfying burgeoning adolescent male yobbery? I don't know but I prefer a slightly more serious and sedate campaign mode myself. Anyway, too early to tell (hopefully!)
