Ooh, I might get this just for the single player campaign. I could mess around with the multi between BC2 sessions too.

If I've never plated a Modern Warfare game, is this worth my time, or should I skip straight to the (much-discussed) sequel?

Edit: And jeez, it took the thing this long to get down to $15? Mass Effect was $5 not too long ago...

Hah! Saw this right after playing The Passing on L4D2.

Pretty good deal imo. How's the multiplayer in this one?

Took long enough for this to get to a considerable price. Probably still won't bite, though; I'd only play the single player and I have enough games right now.

I have this on retail disc, but it's still an awesome game on PC. Feels dated now, but it's still solid.

Has dedicated servers and is played a ton, IIRC.

According to Xfire stats, more people play this than MW2 using Xfire's MW stats compared to Steam's MW2 stats.

Bah, I own the game but the box is seperated from the CD case and CD. I need to find that...

Since when did they stop putting the CD key in booklets =/

Crap, and this month I promised myself I wouldn't spend any money. I already spent $15 on Force Unleashed, but it was because I had come upon some extra money.

But I have wanted to play the Modern Warfare games...

It's worth your time. The single player campaign is really good, short, but worth the price. It has a really good story, and memorable characters for an FPS. And, for what it's worth, I think there are more people playing CoD4 multi than MW2 (and possibly BF:BC2).

MW2 has a lot more action and excitement, like you're playing through an action movie, but the story is disjointed, confusing, and at times preposterous. Every new mission jumps to a different character, with 6 in all, so I was often confused as to who I was, where I was, what I was doing there, and why. But it was edge-of-your-seat nonsensical excitement!

Personally, I enjoyed them both. The first has a great story, while the second is filled with action and excitement.

The CD key is on the back of the CD case.

More PC people play CoD 4 because it has dedicated servers unlike MW2 which uses p2p like consoles. CoD 4 is a lot more fun with dedicated servers because server hosts can police their own servers, reduces lag, and can have up to 32 people playing on one map rather than the capped 18 on consoles and MW2 PC. Games are also usually longer as well so you can get 100 kills or more in one game.

Definitely worth it for $15.

Better than MW2 on PC?

I used to own MW on 360 ... loved it, but sold it in anticipation of MW2 (because obviously the sequel was going to be better :cry: ) ... didn't love MW2, sold it ...

So is it worth picking up again for PC?

Thanks for the mini-review! I am now strongly considering a purchase. Only my backlog might stop me.

The SP is short but well worth it (beat it in a weekend on the PS3). I might have to jump on this deal.

If you want to play it again, yeah. PC version didn't have any issues, had dedicated servers, got all the map packs for free, and was generally a good game. Since you already know your thoughts on the game for 360 then barring your computer not having enough grunt to run it well (Kinda unlikely, I seem to remember it scaling well) PC version was/is good.

I think this is a bit of a Fuck you to the MW2 map pack coming up. "Hey, why buy a MW2 map pack for $15 which has two MW1 maps in it when you can just buy MW1 for $15".

That Star Wars mod looks awesome! Does it have an active community what so ever? Anyways for $15 this seems like a sure deal for me :D

If you want to play this online, keep in mind...

Punkbuster + Steam Overlay == No Go

First of all, annoying as hell setting up Punkbuster correctly (gotta do some manual updates of the Punkbuster files cause of UAC, it's all in the Steam forums).

Second, even after it's all setup, you need to disable Steam Overlay to play this game otherwise Punkbuster will kick you (Steam blames Punkbuster and Punkbuster said they won't fix it). No overlay, means no Steam Friend IMing.

Single player was fun though, short-ish though. I took it pretty slow the first time I played it, done in 6 hours.

Oh god that kills the temptation I had to re-buy this for Steam. They did this (Punkbuster kicking you due to Steam overlay) in Battlefield 2 as well which enrages the shit out of me.
