I was new to MW2 too. I've had no need to buy any of the others COD games - but since completing the story (which must mean the game was easy, cos I'm rubbish at this sort of thing) I've been multiplaying online - so less interested in the story anyway. If anything I'm thinking about MAG or Battlefield Bad Company 2
Thanks guys, so far i've not stepped up to the challenge, but its still on the cards. Any advice is very welcome. I'm thinking to get COD4MW then progress from there, as like DaytonaX i'm new to this sort of game, and really want to play online. Thanks again
There isn't a connecting plot between the Call of Duty games and only a very weak link between Modern Warfare 1 and 2. The first Call of Duty and COD4 are probably the best games in the series but the first game probably doesn't hold up too well today. If you want to try it you can find it for PC or get Call of Duty Classic on PSN or XBLA.
As far as the recent games are concerned the single-player is much better in COD4 than World at War or Modern Warfare 2. And I even think the multiplayer is better than MW2 (better maps, less of a constant barrage of killstreaks, 1st person 1v1 cage matches) but I'm not sure how many people still play it and the graphics look pretty dated.
No you dont mate. Theres no connection between both games. COD4 is the easiest and the best game to get into quickly. MW2 has a lot of problems, although it is fun. Its a lot more difficult (the crap maps dont help!)
