    I wonder what other games let you do this.. and can we expect more Ice grappling in future games?

    ....... wish they incorperated a few enemies to kill and fling off the face of the ice cliff...

    now that wouldve been radical!

    what do you think?

    heres a vid of the ice climbing in action

    I wouldn't call alternating left and right click gripping gameplay.

    Yeah, it's a quick time event (here). It's quite common on linear games and it's nothing special.

    Bahahaha!

    There's much cooler things in MW2 like the last level which I won't spoil but if you know what an Aussie rappel is, it involves that and a knife.

    I liked the idea & perspective of the ice climbing, but found it annoying. I don't know if its just carpal tunnel or arthritis kicking in, but my fingers didn't enjoy it at all!

    Seketh: I think there's quite a big difference between what you do in the ice climbing situation in MW2... and a QTE. Main point being you don't HAVE to press the next button. You can just sit there and hang out if you wanted to. The only way to progress is by pressing the next mouse button. But if you press it and let go of the previous one too soon.... you fall. QTE's are more like what you see spammed constantly in God of War.... whereas if you don't press a specific button within a specific amount of time at just the right place, you're screwed.

    all i was trying to say, is that i wish that they couldve added a few things.....that all in all, its a great idea, and was asking a question about if people think that it should be included in games (of course with better function and feature....


    so bottom line point is this::

    its a great concept....i didnt mean to say that the Ice Climbing in the game was great....

    what i meant was, that it was a great idea, just needs some major adjustments, battles and more actions.

    You're right though... it is an interesting and relevant piece of gameplay that breaks up the normal 'shoot everything in your path'. I mean they COULD have just spawned you on top of the cliff face, but they added in that extra little bit of you getting there. So yes I agree, the idea is good. I'd like to see more of this sort of 'pre-battle' intros in other games.

    wouldn't even call it that. It's no different from climbing a ladder in any other game.... except that they decided to have this one be at the beginning of a piece of the story to show how you managed to sneak up to the base on the frozen mountain peaks. They just added some extra activity rather than pressing W (or up on the control stick for those console players), to make it slightly more involving, and fun.

    Hell, i messed around to try to see just how fast you could climb that cliff. As it turns out.... not extremely fast. lol

    And you needed to post that.. why?

    On topic, I thought it was a cool little addition to the game. It would have been cooler if it had a few extra quirks but it satisfied me. I like the building up to the situation in MW2, unlike getting dropped off by parachute etc.
