Modern Warfare 2 with DLC

The game is what I expected....Modern Warfare 2 with just a DLC. This is not a bad thing, but at the same time I personally got burnt out with playing MW2 which makes MW3 kind of hard to get into. I am going to play the campaign (to finish the story) and a little bit of the multiplayer (which normally I would just play the multiplayer). I really hope that COD can introduce some in life into this series since it has not changed much since MW1. I would not buy this game since it should have just been a $20 DLC for MW2. Fun, but just a rental game.

Ok the best game just went down to garbage. I am returning my copy and getting my money back.
The graphics are very nice, guns are nice.
The campaign was the bomb and captivating to the last mission.
The downfall of it is the same problem with online game.
First there is the server migration not often as MW2 but still there, the server match making is still horrible. When I quit a match it put me back to it 3! times to the same game. The difference when I am level 25 and then put in a match where everyone is level 70 and above. Then there is spawn campers by the dozen.
Other thing that kills the game is the COD Elite and what ever that is. When I entered the online menu in the game a pop up window asked to download it. That's is it, how greedy can you get, the best selling game and there offering better service for paid subscription where they should give the fans something free for their loyalty.

Battlefield 3 takes this year top spot.

Remember when shooting games took skill and it wasn't about who had the biggest explosives? I have always hated the squirtgun fight known as the COD franchise but I enjoyed the challenge of hardcore search and destroy. It took some sort of skill if you could avoid the under barrel grenade launcher at the beginning (or spawn tubing) but then on this pathetic remake of every other COD game they bring in the fully automatic grenade launcher. Are you serious? Now there is no fun left to the game at all but for some reason they still included the hardcore game modes. Now the map packs that have been the same layout for every single one of there games just with different scenery require you to pay $60 for a 12 dlc subscription to get 1 or 2 things when they decide to give it to you is just dumb. This rip off they call a subscription is also giving other companys the idea that they should do this as well. 1/5 better games with cheaper DLC with more for less!
