    As usual, the Cool Factor takes precedence over realism. Then again, if you're looking for realism in Call of Duty, you're playing the wrong series.

    the more i hear about this the less and less i want to try it.

    first the loony price tags, then the console exclusive editions, 50 cent "bigging" it up and now this.

    it looks like the hype machine is running rampant again.

    Not fussed about akimbo guns, just want the game already. And not to spend £40+ on it.

    Realism? There is nothing remotely real about COD. When I first started playing it I had a hard time getting used to the laser beam speed and accuracy of the guns because I normally played Delta Force where you have to adjust for bullet drop and travel time. After firing a shot the gun goes back to the exact same spot it was at previously. The maps are also entirely too small. It is still a fun game don't get me wrong, but it is not realistic in any way shape or form. Don't get me started on the helicopters and air strikes, I can chain them like a pro, but I'm pretty sure any real life military does not require you to get kills in a row before you are allowed to ask for air support. Realism, yea....

    I suspect the opposite is normally the case in real world combat. Its doubtful that a commander goes "Oh dear my men have too crazy skillz. Lets send in a chopper."

    LOL!!!!!!!!!!! completely true!

    The reason I probably won't be getting this game is:

    #1 Price tag for a Modern Warfare mod
    #2 The hype they and their fans are creating
    #3 Lack of team play in previous Modern Warfare multiplayer, I thought it felt more like a pimped out version of Unreal Tournament(gameplaywise) or Counter Strike... Cool but not "60$-because-we're-special-cool"

    It will still have infinite spawning enemies until you move up to the next crate/wall/corpse

    Typical shallow, overrated, overhyped console nonsense. Not buying it. This is the type of game console gamers buy every year like mindless guppies.

    Realism? ROFL, COD is one of the most unrealistic shooters out there, totally a mindless arcade action game.

    I like CoD:MW :( one of my fav's.

    I've just been playing on this "Tactical Realistic" server on WaW and got told off plenty of times for not ADS with my pistol (still don't get how that's unreal but nevermind) so I can just imagine this online for this type of server :-

    Admin : ElRando. 1st warning. Always ADS with pistol
    ElRando : I Can't !!!

    Agreed. Realism is NOT Call of Duty. "Hollywood Realism" is Call of Duty

    first of all, dual wielding .50AE Desert Eagles is extremely unrealistic, even in real life. the amount of recoil that the weapons generate is ridiculous. for instance

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKMhFIkfA9k

    most people can barely even handle one of these weapons, let alone two. also, the idea of the desert eagle being a weapon employed by the military is ridiculous. the weapon is too large and cumbersome to be used in any combat situation, ammunition is very expensive, and clip capacity is very small.

    edit: found this on youtube.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtKl8RP4jRs

    there is no way in HELL that any soldier would ever want to do that in a combat situation.

    i really dont know if im going to buy MW2 now..like you guys have stated..the $59.99 price tag is epic fail and now the akimo Desert Eagle garbage?

    lame.

    I don't think this will be option most people will use. More or less sounds like Infinity Ward was listening to the 10-16 year olds on their forums.

    I have shot pistols akimbo and can say that it is purely 'I want to try it for the effect'. I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn doing it, that's for sure! (But it was fun! :D )

    Kinda sad, but eh... who cares? Its a game, its going to have unrealistic super human abilities tied into it. *cough* Crysis *cough* Real soldiers would be laughed at using dual weapons. No hype or movie styling will make it any better either.

    Dual Desert Eagles? You would need a nano suit for that?!

    Dual Sig P226s are semi-accurate...

    Of course no one really uses those.
