Thanks this game is going to be great
I agree with everyone that has said that this game will kill there sleep schedule, lol I won't be getting much sleep either, Red Bull here I come.
lol, defend burgertown
HAHAHA! Nice Bloody Pikey's and there diamond eating dogs! They definately need a "Desert Eagle Point Five-0" achievement! Otherwise it might just say r-e-p-l-i-c-a !
Royale with cheese just sounds hilarious
"Defend Burger Town" AHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Please tell me that was a Snatch reference! One of Brad Pitt's best IMO.
Anyways, I think Infinity Ward needs to throw in some multiplayer achievements along with ways to stop people from getting them with help from others. Maybe splitscreen too while they're at it.
does anyone know where to find a list of explanations for all of the unlockable titles in multi-player mode? it's not all that apparent what they mean a lot of the time. similar to achievements i guess...
Too bad my XBox broke and I won't be getting another shot at these for around a month and a half
this will be the next game my brother will get
I have been playing Modern Warfare 2 and the multi-player is challenging because everyone cheats online with rapid fire controllers and they hack the server to speed up the game or other stuff. If anyone has any ideas on how to level the playing field please let me know.

I'm 3 achievements away from completing both MW and 2.
I wish there were a few more Mulitiplayer achievements>
Going trophy hunting....
Definitely one of the easier games to get Platinum for, as long as you had a good co-op partner that is.
I never could finish up the Spec Ops missions because a few require a second person, and I could never find anyone who could play worth a flip.
