Modern warfare was a great game on release lets not beat about the bush here,but on the Playstation at least its been totally ruined by hackers and only next week after nearly 18 months are IW addressing the problem for Playstation gamers.
They have done themselves absolutly no favours with the console crowd and i fear that many thousands of gamers will boycott there future products unless they are mind blowing games.
Totally agree T2D. COD4 Modern Warfare is a superb game. Pity that all the new COD incarnations got taken over by the money men!
There are many other great games out there but to me it's the control system that made COD so successful. The speed and weight of control are excellent. Whenever I play other games, no matter how much I enjoy them, returning to COD felt easy and like coming home!
I loved Killzone 2 and thought the controls were extremely realistic. In MP however that isn't what you want. And it compounds the horrible feeling of lag when it occurs.
Many of us loved the modern contemporary weapons, but I believe that if KZ, BFBC etc. had the same responsiveness of control then COD would not be as successful as it is today. Killzone is amazing to look at and will take a lot of beating from a console standpoint.
PC games played with a mouse can obviously deliver the fastest and most responsive controls. No doubt about that. But for people that can't find the time/funds to make the most of that platform, it's about making the best of a joypad.
From a console gamers point of view, it's the weighting and responsiveness of the control system that makes it so great to play. It's just a pity that that pick up and play very quickly format attracts all the lager lout gamers aswell.
Knowing how it works is completely different to understanding how it works.
