Prepare your sides for the splitting of a lifetime, because this is comedy you just can't buy! IGN officially gave the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 a 9.5, but when you compare it to the average reader review, something doesn't quite add up. That's because the reader rating for MW2 currently stands at 1.3!
It seems that a lynch mob of PC gamers, angry over the lack of dedicated servers and 9v9 multiplayer cap, have descended upon IGN's reader reviews like piranha's on a tampon. Post after post of vitriol and hatred have been heaped upon this game and "Insanity Ward," with such scathing reviews as:
I WAS TRYING TO PLAY THE SINGLE PLAYER, BUT I THINK I MUST HAVE BLINKED OR SOMETHING, BECAUSE I WAS AT DA END OF THE GAME BEFORE I KNOW IT. THIS IS WHAT THE SINGLE PLAYER WAS LIKE: SHOOTING GALLERY, FAKE MOVIE BIT, SHOOTING GALLERY, FAKE MOVIE BIT, SHOOTING GALLERY, OVER. IT WAS THE WURST.
This game more fail than the Gov't run health bill that was just passed.
There is just too much hilarity for me to post, so I urge everybody check it out before IGN cleans it up. For posterity purposes, I've taken a few screengrabs as well, because I believe this should be recorded as a great and historic event. I truly believe that this is the greatest moment in American history.
