From the yahoo post...
As of the time of writing, review aggregation site Metacritic puts the game’s various versions around the 75% mark, a very far cry from last year’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which wound up averaging in the mid-90s. Combine that with a couple of standout low marks from respected outlets Giant Bomb and IGN -- both of whom give it a disappointing 6/10 -- and it’s clear EA has wound up off-target.
Against MW2; please... It would appear to me that both Giant Bomb and IGN are biased toward the console. I have not played the official version but IGN seems to be off target a bit. Based on the beta for me though.
IGN called it “one of the most unstable console releases [they’ve] seen so far this year,” citing bugs with graphics, sound, and gameplay progression. Even Gaming Trend, despite an overall overall positive tone, wonders if competition from a certain other game might have lead to a rushed release. Our advice: wait until November, when we’ll see how the Call of Duty half of this head-to-head plays out.
Console release? On a PC? Really? Sure I would much prefer a game with matching only or another with one provider like back in the day with pragmatic... Damn, I may just have to buy this game to see the difference between the two.
