Can the four "play 'X' game type for 2 hours" achievements be unlocked via hardcore mode?

Thanks

Good to hear. I've found that Hardcore mode has quite a bit less of the stray-bullet deaths!

Care to explain what you mean by this?

So far, I've found that the biggest flaw within the multiplayer, if any, comes from placing the DICE style of play into a series of much closer-combat oriented maps. The strengths of Bad Company 2 came from the appeal of stalking and hunting in the multiplayer. BFBC2 felt more patient and skillful because of the specific type of realism that was achieved in the game. This realism doesn't translate well into the MW2 style of fast-paced, small-mapped warfare. What comes from this combination is DICE's realistic weapons and MW2's rumble pit play style--something fantastic in theory, but in actuality, with bullets flying from every direction in maps where end-to-end can easily be seen, leads to many frustrating and seemingly uncontrollable deaths. So, Hardcore mode takes away our crosshairs, making the online experience much more enjoyable.
