Tag: Infinity Ward
I wanted to point out that Modern Warfare 2 is a great game for the Xbox 360 (and I am sure PS3 as well). What I don’t understand though is Activision wanting so hard to destroy its name.
They fire the top people behind Infinity Ward. Why? Because they guys asked for their promised cut of the profits that Activision wasn’t delivering. They also insisted that the direction Activision wants to take the product into..was wrong (Activision wants to squeeze the title for all the money it’s worth..vs bringing us games of rich quality). Some of the top MW2 designers followed the fired Infinity Ward leaders by resigning some time after.
Then they charge $15 for a map-pack expansion that only gives you 5 maps. No extra guns, missions or anything special….just maps. To make it worse, most of the suck. They are camp central, or allow it to be too easy for one team to spawn-trap the other…both scenarios that kill a game’s fun factor. At a price of $15, that makes this map-pack the most expensive on Xbox Live (I don’t know about PS3). The fact that it sucks…just makes it ever more then rotten.
So I say “SAY NO TO ACTIVISION” and start boycotting their games if you can. Hopefully the creators of Infinity Ward that were terminated, will get back up and start a new company. This way they can once again bring us games of high quality and in the customer’s interest (and not to nickel and dime you like Acitivision wants).
If you have the game already though, keep playing it because it is fun. Just remember that Halo Reach is about a week or so away so all this will become yesterday’s news anyways, as long as Halo Reach delivers what it promises.
