    I've only been playing the Campaign up til now, but so far it seem great. Granted, much of it's more of the same from CoD4, but the story seems pretty good (the 'controversial' mission serves to introduce the direction of the plot) and the action's certainly pretty frantic at times. Hardened is proving to be quite a challenge so far! I'm having trouble picking my favourite weapon so far between the infra-red sniper rifle and briefcase-controlled air-to-ground missiles...

    I'm not really sure if I should be considering trying the online until the game's official release, just in case I upset someone from Activision/Sony. :ninja:
    Sounds great! I'm sure you can go online without any problem, plenty of people have it early surely.

    Activision said they are resetting all leaderboards and player rankings on the 10th of November. I'm going to play the online a lot anyway, so I'm just going to concentrate on the campaign/trophies if I get it on Monday...

    Wooooo! Got my first (and probably last) platinum for Uncharted 2. :woo:

    It took me all of yesterday afternoon to get the final 20 treasures which was a PITA, other than that, only the Steel Fist Expert trophy was much hassle.

    I was a bit disappointed to only hear the normal "brrrinngggg" you get for acquiring a trophy, I was expecting to hear a fanfare or something .

    I have to say, the one disadvantage of having MW2 early is having to resist sharing any story spoilers. Suffice to say, it's superb so far - and has just had a rather unexpected development! If anyone does want any advance info on any aspect the game, feel free to ask - and I hope you all get your copies nice and soon! :yes:

    I've finished the campaign too :yes: I thought the levels in the final act were brilliant. I literally gasped at the tv as the events unfolded one after the other :yep:

    I'm hunting for a good deal.

    Hah - I'm not that far yet! Just finished mission 5 of Act 2 (potential spoiler, though I've kept it mild)...
    Spoiler:
    Show
    ...and discovered who "prisoner 627" is.

    I'm definitely looking forward to seeing where it goes from here! How many missions are there in total?

    £37.98 from Coolshop - it was the best of the recent pre-order prices. It's the kind of price that Uncharted 2 is going for at the moment, so it doesn't seem too bad to me (even if Sainsbury's seem likely to be rather better). :cool:

    Can't quote you Illusionary because I would then see what's in the spoiler!

    I was hoping more on the lines of £30?! :p:

    Any chance the supermarkets will drop the price way down when the game gets released as they undercut each other?

    Yeah :eek: I shant spoil it for you then, but it is seriously epic.

    It's about the same length as CoD4 was, so about 6-8 levels or so in the final act.

    I've been testing the splitscreen multiplayer too. Yes there is a 3rd person mode and it's lulzy, and the ranks go up to 70 now, not 55 :eek3:

    :gasp:

    Prestige mode would be a right pain then! I think I'll be using my usual reach-the-highest-level-and-stay-there approach when I play online.

    :eek: I only got up to level 17 in CoD 4! I'd expect to be playing MW2 somewhat more though...

    So that's what Cristiano Ronaldo has been doing while he's out injured :hmmm:

    Contract Clause - Cristiano will not turn up for a game if he is playing Death Match on MW2.

    £80m well spent.
