    So I had a couple sections on SBMM and some other multiplayer stuff that I ended up cutting from the video cuz it’s too damn long. I’m thinking about review Warzone 2.0 in a separate video or at least doing a gameplay/highlights video for it but we will see.
    Also I had sex with your mom last night. It’s good to be back.

      @Oscar O'sullivan I wish they continued the story of cod ghosts instead of leaving it on a cliffhanger but they is a cutscene where somehow (don't know how but not questioning it) rorke survived being shot and drowning in a train cart and after being impressed with Logan (you) he drags Logan away and telling Logan that we are going to destroy together (considering that Logan has broken arm after rorke breaking it and kicking hash right in the face knocking to his left) and they is one more cutscene if you wait throughout all the credits (no joke) showing Logan in a pit in the middle of the jungle (my guess rorke dragged Logan to the very same pit he was thrown in to by the federation all those years ago and gave Logan the same treatment that the federation gave to rorke and most likely broke Logan just like rorke)

      That down the mountain mission is probably based off a special forces mission gone wrong

      Question for you act man which mission between these 2 is the darkest mission (in your opinion) 1: no Russian from call of duty modern warfare 2 the original (as well as the remastered version) or alone from call of duty modern warfare 2 made in 2022 bc I think the mission alone is just as dark as the mission no Russian if not darker

      MW2019 even had lines at the start and end of multiplayer matches such as “Who dares wins”. It should have Hassan being the way he is because an important family member to him was imprisoned or killed because they opposed the Shah of Iran which leads to his radicalisation and ending up being an agent unintentionally of Shepard. I think the double crossing should have been in the perspective of Alejandro and happened just after you up meet up with graves with like in all of the game multiple choice actions like in Black ops two. You can either end up dead with you getting to play Rodolfo as you storm the base looking to kill Graves after you are rescued from the prison because you were captured or Alejandro gets captured first person perspective including being knocked out with the gun. Hopefully the story is better next time and after that maybe a reboot of ghosts.

      @紫銅隊長 long post but: movement being number 1 alongside the ADS being too slow and the ttk being too fast. The visual recoil on the guns are disgusting. Too much red (blood inpact) screen visuals while being shot at if that makes sense. The characters look weird, the UI is the worst of any cod game ever. Perk system is complete trash. The maps suck and all basically feel the same. Large warehouse buildings akin to warzone in mp maps. There’s no predictability and the team spawn system is repulsive. They nerfed aggressive players with things like nerfing dead silence and having team spawns. The art style doesn’t look good at all. So yeah that’s why that game is a downgrade to the last three cods. You had mentioned that it was one of the best FPS and a lot of ppl disagree.

    I honestly thought that letting Hassan go was a pretty dumb plot point too. As you said he crossed the boarder illegally, assaulted someone, attempted murder and was an arsonist, but how about we list all his crimes…
    1. Assault with a deadly weapon
    2. Illegally crossing the boarder
    3. Arson
    4. Attempting to murder a law enforcement officer
    5. Successfully murdering a law enforcement officer
    6. Acts of terrorism
    7. Associating with the Cartels
    8. Theft
    9. Grand Larceny
    10. Possession of illegal weapons
    11. Trespassing onto private property
    All this shit and you’re telling me that they “weren’t allowed to arrest him”? As someone who trained in the Military Police Corps I gotta say that is a load of bullshit. I mean, MPs are pretty careful about who they arrest and I’d say that even they would be willing to jump on that guy pretty damn fast.

    • tapircrusader88

      from a development stand point it seems like originally they were going to have Hassan die and then focus on Shepard but probably realized the plot point would be to similar to 2019.

      Frederick Cooper 29 days ago

      I can't let this scene go solely because as far as I could tell the only people who knew where he was then and there were Shepherd, Laswell, Soap, Ghost, Alejandro, Roldalfo, and Graves. That's it. Who tf would even know they disappeared his body in the middle of the mexican desert? Even then what prevents blaming the cartel specifically, it's not like they are trustworthy. This plot hole bugged me something fierce.

  • Cabnbeeschurgr
    Cabnbeeschurgr Month ago +465

    I think the story was made more low stakes on purpose. As cool as the world war 3 scenario from the og mw2 would be in a modern game, it simply doesn't fit with the whole stealthy spec ops "bravo 6 going dark" style they had for 2019. Obviously this campaign takes a lot of inspiration from movies like Sicario and Zero Dark Thirty, where the focus is more on small, surgical operations rather than an all out war. If I had to guess, mw3 will be Makarov causing ww3, and that'll be the big finish.

    • McLovin 99
      McLovin 99 26 days ago

      Correct me if I’m wrong but this game will have a Year 2 and in the updates they’ll release more missions to this campaign which will explain why this campaign, although amazing, didn’t feel too high stakes. The second addition to campaign will probably ramp up the stakes to lead into MW3. If I’m wrong though, this campaign was very fun regardless.

    • Juan Manuel Penaloza
      Juan Manuel Penaloza 26 days ago

      Yeah but the surgery is pretty much touch and go. I mean, Mexican Special Forces were seen operating in US soil. Mexican villages and towns took a pounding from an AC-130. Univision and Fox News would have a field day with these stories and we'd never hear the end of it.

    • Remington _ ACR

      Makes it more realistic imo. Keep in mind that countries are almost always at war. It doesn’t have to be both sides invading each other for whatever reason. I like the whole kicking in the back door style missions.

    I had the coolest experience in DMZ, I was in the airport thinking it was just a random new design and then while under fire and not sure where to turn I suddenly realized that part of the airport map layout is from MW2 and I instantly knew the map layout from all the CoD MW2 I played back in 2009. First time I ever experienced nostalgia like that and it was unexpected. I should have expected it considering it's a remake of MW2 but I had lost faith in Activision's ability to do things right. Well done on that one Activision 👏

    I'm pleased to hear you bring up the gun name issue, because that's something that really pisses me off. It's a modern warfare game. All of these guns are recognizable, it's not like we wouldn't notice. Maybe it's literally just to save money on licensing.

  • MOTO 357
    MOTO 357 Month ago +85

    So my take on the low stakes campaign and hear me out here is that I felt like they wanted something a little more realistic. Not every sf mission is the fate of the world. Also if you jump straight to the gate of the world it’s like alright well what are we gonna do with the next game. Kinda like how mass effect had main story’s that were all leading to the reapers arriving in the third game.

    • GoodDoggo
      GoodDoggo Month ago +7

      i don't think, thats what he means. I think he means the vulnerability of main characters, they don't have a lot of support from the US gov, and what they do is "skirting the line of legal" so characters being in actual danger is never really a threat. Since all the main characters have plot armor

  • Brandon Baum
    Brandon Baum 25 days ago +18

    This biggest plot hole to me is when laswell is captured, even though that mission is awesome, it serves no real purpose to the story, it’s not like Hassan captured her and you have to fight until the end of the game to get her back, you just go and get her right back, it’s almost like it was just a way to bring in Farah for a cameo

    I really feel like the plot could have been tensed up slighty more and link better together of the missles were tactical nukes or something. Put some more tension and stakes into the matter, maybe even link them together with the broken arrow accidents? (American accidents where nuked were lost or disappeared)

    I find progression is better than previous call of duty. The attachments, camo challenge, and platforms is spread out to encourage (forced) us to use variety of weapons and I think it awarding to suffer the worse weapons in order to unlock attachments and camo for my favorite weapons or unlock better weapon platform rather than give up on it completely.

  • Dr4iners4christ
    Dr4iners4christ Month ago +2

    My whole issue is with the classic MP. The SBMM in my opinion really makes all the small inconsistent bullshit worse IMO. It's a fun game if you can get into a casual lobby, ya know maybe a little sweat here and there, but grinding anything in this game that cannot stand a chance against meta options is annoying especially with how complicated the UI and weapon attachment unlocks are especially since most fucking weapons in this fucking game work better without attachments its like why even grind?
    I like to grind out different weapons, I like the fast arcade gameplay, but I rarely have the ability to really do it. The only real fun I can consistently have in this game without abusing the skill based algorithm through reverse boosting is using an RPG.
    But most of the time, I'm forced to play with meta weapons, camping and just holding sightlines so I don't get absolutely fucking pubstomped for playing call of duty like an actual call of duty game.
    I hate how most of the weapons work better without attachments especially at the high level IM FORCED to play in (even worse when I can actually play with my friends who are better than me for an hour before it crashes) because of some stupid algorithm all because I'm not fucking brain dead in this game.
    Don't get me wrong there was always stupid BS in call of duty especially 2009s MW2, but it was stupid enough, casual enough and more importantly fun enough to sorta just let it be and I wasn't automatically matched up with TEAM SWAMPASS every time.
    It just this game feels more geared towards cultivating the metacels and e sports team Sweatnuts community which wouldn't be an issue, but don't force me by fucking do it with SBMM.
    Also the MP content for 6v6 sucks, And still sucks with the release of season 1. I like DMZ but there's not that much to do, and it just feels like battle royale with some extra lazy padding. I also like warzone, but just sometimes I don't want to wait 15 minutes to gear up, wait like an extra 10 more minutes of just running around for 2 minutes of fast shooty gameplay.
    The campaign is one of the best though I cannot complain about that.

      i feel like this game is a major improvement from vanguard fs, and i can't stop playing the campaign personally. but i feel like it's a downgrade from mw2019. i wish we were able to use all of the weapons and customize multiple loadouts of our own for multiplayer and i wish we had more features offline (i.e. all of the maps, kill confirmed, SND, cyber attack, free for all, etc.)
      i strongly believe though that the game is going to get better if infinity ward spends their two-year contract with mw2 wisely and not have it squandered by activision. or it could get worse and make vanguard a much better game.
      all we have to do is let time take its course. if i have to rate this game, it's definitely a nice 7/10.

    Remember kids, the original director of the first call of duty has been quoted as saying "we weren't going to include shotguns at first, why would we right? At first, some thought no one would use them, others thought everyone would and they would ruin the game. Eventually we changed our minds because we wanted to give kids with handicaps and other cognitive or physical disabilities a fighting chance. They deserve to play call of duty too. We decided that no regular player would use them since it would show the other players they weren't skilled at the game. We assumed the shame would be a big enough deterrent and it wouldn't be an issue. " -Ken Turner director call of duty 2003

    Actman has lied to us about this game. This is one of the most broken COD’s since the first month of Cold War. The game crashes, random ping drops/laggy lobbies, SBMM being way out of control, and perks/field upgrades that just don’t work half the time. The title should be “Why is MW2 so bad/meh”. Don’t be fooled by these content creators they will lie to you to make money. Don’t buy MW2

    Mabye it's beacuse you have not played enough of the mp in the game, but the multiplayer has such strong SBMM it's not even fun trying to have fun. I have a 1.4 kd, witch is not even that good. And every time I try to play the game I play 3-4 fun matches and then the game sends a swat team to eliminate my fun the next 9-15.
    It's not that I don't ruin games for others aswell, it's the fact that we are all beeing graded like it's a school. Everybody knows that for a school grading system to work the whole class has to be graded all over the place, but what makes it fun is that everybody, smart, dumb, unintrested or trying are all mixed in one slushie. If everybody was smart there whould probably be no class clown.
    See, games nowdays are not nesseseraly bad, but they all lack caracter. They lack all the other grades from your grade.
    Now the campain is ok, but at the same time it does not make me intrested enough. The campain has great visuals, but there are so many characters that they all slowly lose their identity. If I am going to play thr game for the campain, I whould 100% rather play God of war or The Witcher 3.
    Usually I agree with you Act Man, but this time I strongly dissagree.

    Modern warfare has always been about revealing something realistic about, well, modern warfare. Be it Clean House, civvy casualties, or NO Russian, IW always has something to say about the nature of warfare. In this game, it's a simple misplacement of missiles with a small under the table deal that leads to a larger cover up that ends up screwing up everything. Its something that has happened before IRL, and will happen again. I'm not saying the plot is 10/10, but I think a 5 is a bit disrespectful.

    One thing that's killed CoD for me, and no its nothing serious, but the menu music. CoD4-BO2 had the BEST menu music. But also, General Shephard, not a fan of who it is that plays him compared to 2009, and the voice actors being completely different for these reboots. They should've gotten the OG voice actors

    Yeah the actual reviews for this game day otherwise. Even calling it awesome is a pretty big statement especially when people are saying the first one was waaay better than this one and the reviews for this game are not good at all. They took to many good things out from the first one to replace with even worse gameplay mechanics. And the writing is apparently really shitty and boring. So yeah this game is far from awesome. Look up a video called why call of duty franchise has gone to shit and you definitely see what I'm talking about.

    I was really bummed when Shepard just ended up being the “twist” villain again. Especially since the scene where he betrays you in the original MW2 is one of the most memorable moments in gaming history. Would have been cool to write his character as an ally, that would have been an actual surprise since everyone and their mother knew was going to betray you the second his name was mentioned

    So many people complained about this mission simply because it's a driving mission while they also give you options to switch to different vehicles and shoot at Al-Qatala who are shooting back

  • Ivan V Ivanov
    Ivan V Ivanov Month ago

    My main and only guess on the weapon names is that's it's not based off money rather those weapon companies don't want their weapons associated with call of duty anymore. I'm not sure if that's it, it's only a guess. But it's what I hope so they have a reason to not include the real life names

    • ENiX
      ENiX Month ago

      The real reason is actually lamer than anything we could have thought of. The real reason COD uses fake names on real guns is to avoid adhering to the specs of it's real life counterpart.
      It's so they never have to worry about players complaining about how unrealistic the M4 knockoff is. They never have to worry about accurate muzzle velocity, RPM or recoil because it's not real so it doesn't matter. Fake guns gives fake specs and it means if a gun is too powerful they can retune for future players, and gun nuts/players who know their shit, don't like that.

    Does anyone else wish that instead of rebooting the Modern Warfare series, they just made a prequel set before the first game instead. There is also 4 years in-between MW1 and MW2 where they could have made games for. Imagine we have the original Ghost, Soap and Price, along with other characters that were still alive before MW2 like Roach and Sandman, on new missions. There was so much potential there, but instead they chose to reboot it and now we have these knock off versions. Don't get me wrong the actors do a fine job, it's just hard not to compare them to the original characters.

It has bugs, crashes, and weird glitches I haven't seen since older games released in 2002. They push to make microtransactions, have a small map pack for release date, and... there's more but too much to even go there. Let's make all players the same!!!! Welcome to the new Call Of Duty!

    Strongly disagree with the multiplayer part, i am a casual player who is above average player. Every game is like i am trying out for a CDL comp. It is a struggle using off meta weapons against above average players and complete the camo grind, its never a relaxing experince! Maps, radar, perk system, spawn points etc... all cater to a certain play style and forcing you to play a campy style. When did it become ok for game devs to ask for money that we played and then force us to play or use that product how they want?! Multiplayer for the casual below average i can see it being enjoyble any higher its a rough time of constant CDL games... im a casual to just better than most.
