I wanna see if it is worth the purchase even without dedicated servers. I guess that's the plan behind the promotion.

And that last comment is why I hate MW the original and will never, ever pay for 2. I bought 1 and was constantly frustrated with tools who lurk in a corner, get 10 kills, then get a heli and keep on going. Being a giant douche should not win you the game.

hackers, cheaters, laggy IWnet, non working VAC that is not banning anymore, map rotation that does not work, etc etc. Makes sense that they have a free weekend. Paying players are leaving this game like rats leaving a sinking ship and potential players who actually read reviews avoid this game like the plague. Enjoy the download and prepare to be headshot......a lot.

I got this game as a gift for christmas on steam, but I haven't played it for about 2 months. It's honestly not worth it. And just a word of warning to those of you who have not played online yet. You will most likely get lit up, since everyone knows the maps inside and out and will camp in some obscure corner, or ran around with commando and marathon perks on. What a great game (sarcasm)

I've been playing BC2 since early March and haven't looked back once :)

For the first couple weeks, I liked this game. It just got old and tiresome very quickly. Those of you who decide to take advantage of a free weekend offer should keep that in mind. Trust me, the first time you sit in a lobby waiting for an eternity for a game to start, or run into a texture hacker and get nuked within 3 minutes of a map start, you'll understand.

This is due to all the bad publicity around them firing their 2 top guys and others leaving. They want to milk the consumers into buying their future, crapier products. That is, of course, if you don't hate them already.

I wouldn't play this game if it was free. Not out of spite (which I have for Activision), but because without dedicated servers, it's not worth my time. Being able to admin a server to keep cheaters @ bay, to allow legit players the opportunity to play in peace is paramount. That & map tools to be able to make a shit ton of free maps, like MW1 has (over 500).

Sounds like you are a bit butt-hurt.

Get lit-up much? Blame people that know the maps... its not like almost every fps gives you a 40% advantage when you know the maps inside and out...

Because PC gamers care about dedicated servers, if there is no dedicated servers, who is going to police hackers/cheaters? How about lag, you should be concerned about that too. How about Infinity Ward that back-stabbed PC gamers for no good reason at all and by charging $60 for less features? Giving this game a chance is not going to help.

I won't bother with why I got frustrated with MW (and quit playing it) since most have heard or experienced it before anyhow. So when MW2 came out I was interested UNTIL I started reading why ppl hated it even more. Never bought it, never will. IMO I'd say the valve promo this weekend is a confirmation of the rumors that sales are weak and ppl don't like MW2 for many reasons. If they would have just stuck with the formula they had with MW BUT fixed the many aggravations ppl had with it they could have had a winner with MW2. Instead they are ending up doing free weekend promo's just to get rid of inventory and recover investment losses. ...and that's my opinion...
