Ok now i dont mean to diss COD 2 as a mutliplayer game, but i was a little disappointed with it. Firstly COD 1 was a huge success and I understood why they used the quake 3 engine, but COD 2 is just pure ass, I think the developers could have afforded to license a new engine than just add bumpmapping to the quake 3 engine, and badly at that cause it lags like a bitch in DX 9 mode. Secondly the developers were lazy as shit they even used the same death animations from the first game, its 2005 theres ragdoll physics these days and the gun models blow compared to the first one which had superiorly detialed and modeled weapons. Now I may sound a bit materialistic cause im complaining about the technical side of the game, but i have to say the single player is shorter than the first one and I can only play throught it once without getting bored compared to the first one which I finished 5 times.For such a successful game franchise to be cutting such large corners, Im really disappointed. Thought the multiplayer is great, but a repeat of the first with new guns which is also a downside, Infinity Ward all I have to say is tsk tsk tsk.
