Beta conclusion – anticipation turns to skepticism

That’s what GameStar readers are saying about the MW2 beta

In addition to the raw numbers, we also wanted to read your opinion in text form. This creates an ambivalent picture. For community member CakeDeluxe, the beta was a complete disaster because of the game design:

More technical issues than I’ve ever experienced during a CoD beta, terrible interface, winning campers – for me it has little to do with tactics, poor balance, […] loveless cards, you have to play against bots in some modes.

There are also direct contradictions about this. For example, Realchicken answers:

For me, the beta cards are extremely successful. Reminds me a bit of Counter-Strike in the 6vs6 modes. Not too open, sufficient coverage and also a perfect size. Previously had something to complain about in the cards in every CoD or in every beta, not here.

Captain Cola puts itself somewhere in the middle, criticizing the similarity to the series’ predecessor and happy with the planned extended support for CoD Modern Warfare 2:

I thought it was ok but sadly it doesn’t really look any better than Modern Warfare [von 2019]. It felt faster to me, which is quite negative for me.
It is of course positive that it will be supported for two years. I still occasionally play the last three parts, but of course it’s always more interesting with new cards etc.

Sgt.DC gives an overall positive impression and refers to the Ground War mode, which is good for him as an alternative to Battlefield 2042:

I enjoyed Ground War the most, but I’m also a Battlefield veteran. After 2042 it was very disappointing, I am in a good mood here.
