1- i can already tell you haven't even bothered to check the reviews, because most reviews will rate the off line and on line play separately. in fact, i don't believe i have ever read a review for an online fps that did not rate the online game play.
2- i'd be willing to bet that every single online game created has had patches since their initial launch... it's not like C2 is the first or the last for that matter. patches are intended to improve the game play, so online fps should be better after some time.
3- again.. it's just silly to think everybody who reviewed this game had an axe to grind. they didn't, the reviews are what they are. gamerankings got their rating from using 41 reviews from different sites and magazines... it's definitely a fair rating, like it or not.
4- just about EVERY fps is a sequel of some sort... good lord how many bond titles are there now? this is a moot point.
5- i'm not going to ask the fans because, obviously, their opinions are biased. i mean really? go to the C2 message board and ask which is better... then i'll go to the GE message board and ask which is better... then i'll go to the MW3 board and ask which is better... i think you get my point. i see what you're saying about getting the details from the people who actually play the game, but there's no sense trying to explain away all the reviews on this game... they are what they are, take them for what they're worth. either you like the game or you don't.
Combat in C2 = jumping around spraying incredibly inaccurate guns at each other or trying to blow each other up.
I haven't checked the reviews recently, no.
But I know for a fact that many of the launch Con2 reviewers did not play multiplayer. I remember this distinctly because I had not purchased it yet, and had to wait for online reviews.
Most games might have patches, but not all of them have game breaking glitches at launch.
Regardless, I wasn't saying Con2 was the ONLY game that should have its launch week reviews tossed. I think that's good practice in general with games that recieve significant updates.
I just looked at the gameranking reviewers, and it seems that they did not include the reviews to which I was referring. So apparently they agree with me.
007 was pitched, AND received as being a very unique and independent game, throwing back to the 64 classic. It was given special status.
I'm not saying "Ask the fans with polls". I'm saying refer to reader reviews, instead of professional reviews. Reader reviews aren't going to be comprised soley of reviews from devout fans. And while the reviews are generally going to be a little higher, they will be higher for both games you are comparing. And we're not concerned with the score, we're concerned with the comparison, and this I believe provides a better comparison.
I'm not explaining away anything.
The review scores are just numbers, and they don't mean anything unless you understand the context.
A perfect example is what I said before, MANY conduit 2 reviews had comments saying how much of an improvement it was over the original, and yet they gave con2 much harsher scores than they gave Tcon.
If such a large score discrepancy can exist between Tcon (72), and Con2(66), while the reviewers are openly admitting that Con2 is an improvement in almost every way. Then you can bet that this information is important when comparing Con2 and 007.

The two games are very different styles.
Also, having fewer shots to kill does not make the game faster paced. There is much more action and pace to a FPS besides the number of bullets fired.
What makes a game feel fast paced for me is, the number of decisions you make per second, the number of actions you have to make per second, and how many tasks you are doing at one time.
So a game where it takes one bullet to kill, it took a single button press. a single decision, and then... Im left trying to find somebody else. Meanwhile that person I killed got sent to waiting to re-spawn that much more quickly.
You said 'first off' twice.
To the OP.
We aren't trying to ruin your board. We're just saying hi.
