Beta conclusion: anticipation turns into skepticism
This is what GameStar readers are saying about the MW2 beta
In addition to the raw numbers, we also wanted to read your views in text form. Here an ambivalent picture emerges. For community member CakeDeluxe, the beta was a complete disaster due to the game’s design:
More technical problems than I’ve ever encountered during a CoD beta, horrible interface, winning campers – for me it has little to do with tactics, bad balance, […] loveless maps, you have to play against robots in some modes.
There are also counter-opinions directed at this. For example, Realchicken replies:
For me, the beta maps are hugely successful. It reminds me a bit of Counter-Strike in 6vs6 modes. Not too open, quite opaque and perfect also in size. Previously I had something to complain about in the maps of every CoD or every beta, not here.

Captain Cola sits somewhere in the middle, criticizes the similarity to the series’ predecessor, and is happy with CoD Modern Warfare 2’s expected longer support:
I thought it was ok, but unfortunately it doesn’t really look any better than Modern Warfare [von 2019]. It felt faster to me, which is pretty bad for me.
Of course, it is good that it will be supported for two years. I still play the last three parts from time to time, but of course with new maps etc. it is more and more interesting.
Sgt. DC gives an overall positive impression and refers to Ground War mode, which is good for him as an alternative to Battlefield 2042:
I liked Ground War the most, but I’m also a Battlefield veteran. After 2042 was very disappointing, I’m in a good mood here.
