Awesome saving all my money to get this game so serios ..
I can't wait to rock this game. It's seriously going to be insane!
Thanks for the info...
I'm really diggin the whole unnecessary Roughness Acheivement...
This game is going to be awsome thanks for the info.
Actually the spec-ops mode is a multiplayer co op so they have co-op achievements
Those are great! Cant wait to add 1000gs to my gamer-tag. They should give something cool if you get 1000gs here and in Modern Warfare 1.
Never heard of the Spec Ops missions. Is that like terrorist hunt in R6:Vegas?
The opportunity to rank up in multiplayer is its own achievement system, and as such it's good there aren't MP achievements. Good call.
69 stars Achievements is insane because you get 3 stars per Veteran-Difficulty in Spec Ops levels so there should be a total of 23 missions or so.
i honestly think this game is going to rock the world. its not possible for it to be bad
if IW can keep a steady stream of map packs like COD 5 i will be stuck playing for ever
Wow I am sure glad they are making more achievements based on online gameplay. It was annoying playing countless hours and not having any achievements for online. This is going to be awesome :)
Man I'm going to be drained from no sleep and going to my classes, but MD 2 is going to make everything better. I cannot wait til this game drop I'm going to jump right into the single player.
Cant wait for the game! Sadly im low on money..I need a job D:!
