  1. Terrible Performance
    by Valkade Cavel, USA - May 28th 2016

    My 2013 Macbook Air meets ALL the minimum requirements for this game, and I WAS able to play it reasonably well. I was having a great time.... for about 15 minutes. Then it crashed. I thought, "Well, alright, some big games do that every once and again." and it did. It crashed again, and again, and again, and I had to restart the entire game every time. If it arrives on sale again, then maybe try it for yourself, but I would bide my time. The game itself is good, with good performance, the crashes are just really tidious.

  2. Give me more! More CPU!
    by kruemelkeksfan, Germany - Sep 6th 2015

    The game is another typical CoD: health regen and never-ending enemy spawns. Graphics are not much better than those of MW1 but damn, this game needs some monster-machines. I have to put the settings on minimum to keep it playable, while MW1 runs without problems on medium settings (therefore looks better).
    A little gameplay-change is the heavily reduced recoil. Weapons now shake a bit, like if the devs wanted to say: "Look, it shakes. We sure thought about recoil and and we love recoil-GFX, but it shouldn't really impact gameplay." I got no problem with this, it just changes the feeling of the game a bit from "spray'n'pray" to "spray'n'hit-everything-instantly".
