Indeed. It'll be some obscure setting. I had it before with a game and it was something like tessalation or something like that. Unfortunately, I can't remember what game it was.

Still enjoying the campaign for the most part. I could do without the ďhistoricalĒ chapters that involve sneaking around as a 6 year old, but outside of that, Iíve found the missions to be fun and engrossing. I do wish they were a little less scripted and more open, but I guess this is the only way to credibly drive the narrative. The zero dark thirty style missions are pretty kick ass and Iíll probably end up playing those a bunch of times. Happy that they have included a couple of those nighttime house raid style missions.

They could broaden the appeal of the campaign if they would permit some pre-mission planning and weapon/kit selection. They did this in Infinite War.

Anyway, I get the feeling Iím nearing the end...itís been a fun ride.

Yep, still enjoying as well....but definitely on rails although seems to work for the story and such.  Agree on some of the missions, won't spoil it but the one embassy mission where you have to lead the person through the office.....seemed like a total waste of effort putting into the game....IMO :)

Just out of curiosity, what do you guys think about what the campaign does regarding the Highway of Death thing? Taking a real American military engagement and blaming it on the Russians instead in-game?

Did you notice that, and if you did, did it effect how you perceived the campaign?

Itís a fictional engagement in a fictional country.

For almost 30 years, the highway of death was known for the destruction of an armed retreating enemy. Now, all of a sudden, according to the learned gaming press, itís being reported as a massacre of surrendering troops so it can be equated with a game that is depicting utter fantasy. I swear, these idiots wake up every morning to try to figure out what controversy they can manufacture for the day. I guess in the next CoD historic revisionism will turn them all into civilians.

I will say, however, that the Russians certainly do get a particularly bad wrap in this game. This, together with the absurdly blatant Kurd like allies who get abandoned and labeled as terrorists by the Americans is just another underhanded way to ostracize Trump and US foreign policy.

...and by the way, attacks along Highway 80 included not only American aircraft, but Canadian, British and French, as well.

I was wondering about this too.  I saw a post on reddit that casually referred to the "highway of death" as a "war crime."  I couldn't even wrap my head around it.  Have these idiots heard of My Lai?  That's a war crime.  One of these days I'm gonna hear that the sacking of Carthage was a "war crime."   ::)

Came back from holiday, 7GB patch and the game runs fine. However, there are proper annoying stutters during cut scenes and even on the loading of the Infinity Ward logo at the beginning of the game.

I'm going to wait until they fix that before I go back to it.

The game is beautiful though.

Will this come to Steam?

I don't want another 3rd party managing my games.

I eventually got this working with no stuttering on the cut scenes. I read somewhere someone saying that the cut scenes were playing whilst the mission was loading in the background and so moving the game to an SSD would help. I did that and the cut scenes work absolutely fine now.

It could've been another patch (as every time I go to play there's a new patch) and there was a new patch last night and new graphics drivers...so it's possible it's one of those two.

But if anyone else is having an issue and you have space on an SSD, try moving the game to that drive.

Anyway - I can at last go and enjoy this.
