Ok all, for those of us who have played the demo, what do ya all think? Please post all your thghts, who knows, the makers may even want to read this. After all its only a demo and some parts need improvement, mainly the physics engine ... the hit troopers die the same in the old COD, that was a let down. What do you all think so far? :uhm:
well i think that they should have made it so you could cook grenades (like in United Offensive) but otherwise i quite liked it! i cant wait to get my hands ont he real thing
I liked it but I hope they put sprinting back in and quick saves. I miss the health bar too and in MP will suck without. Someone pointed out in another forum that just think about campers and this health regeneration. They'll just hide whenever they get a little low then come back. For SP that's ok I guess but not for MP. COD2 had competition from DoD:Source and Quake 4. Q4 is not a WW2 game but it is a FPS game. For $20 though, DoDS is a good deal. I just hope COD2 rox!
Personnally, I like it. I kinda wish the mission was a little bit longer thou. Graphics engine is a lot better than CoD or UO, should be thou as its a new one. Player/Gun models are really nice. As for cookable nades, someone will make a mod for it, already is one for the demo.:D
gameplay is exactly the same as the original, i went off the original cod coz the gameplay seemed aged when i played newer games... the grafix are actually BAD! the AI is STUPID! when u get shot.. u neva die, once u get shot u go into shelshock and if u get hit again u die... as long asu dont get hit again after shellshock ur health restores... its poo AND the battle chatter system is dumb.. "gerry in the window with an MG!"... "YES I f*cking KNOW I'M GETTING SHOT BY THE c*nt!" personally i think its awful.... more of the same that CoD broguht us... compare that realism to todays games and it isnt good, and thats what we've been treated to in this new game... very dissapointed
to be honest i was disapointed with the demo. good points 1. Improved graphics bad points 1. The health system or hiding to recover is possible the lamest idea ever. I played it straight on veteran and walked throught the game with realitive ease, just ducking behind a wall when i got shot, in cod1 and uo it was a challenge. Also its totally unrealistic, thats why i liked cod and uo in the first place, they offered a more realistic gameplay experience than the likes of quake, unreal etc., the health system goes a long way to remove that realism. 2. Weapon select, why the hell cant you scroll to select your weapons? i had to manually change it so it'd do it for the enfield and thompson but grenades, smoke grenades and binocs are seperate and have to be used by different buttons. That seems like a backwards step to me to not have that option. 3. AI, or rather lack of it, other than shouting out the same comments repeatedly like 'flank the mg42' the is no display of intelligence, a greman tossed a nade into a corridor where a solider was standing, he just leaned againts the wall then got killed. another nade was thrown in and another guy ran TOWARDS the nade to try to run past it to safe instead of back which would of been easier and safer, he died too. 4. Linear gameplay. Maybe its just this map but to me it seemed that uo had more options of pathways, throught some rubble or something than this does. In the demo you have a tiny path to follow. 5. Still has stupid infinte enemys on mg42 positions, if you wait and pick off the guy on the mg42 they keep coming from nowhere to run on it, the only way to kill them is to flank it as your told (forced) to. 6. No sprint, another step back from uo. 7. The plane fights overhead at the start are stupid, if you watch them you cant help but feel that it was a total botch job. 8. No sign of any gameplay improvements. Other than improved graphics all other features have remained the same or gotten worse.
I'm downloading the demo now. Ill rate it after wards
Yeah, cheers guys. Actually what youve said here is just like what theyve said around the whole world! Nade cooking, sprint key etc...come on COD2, please read and change the ops.
If anyone wants cookable nades in their demo, PM me with your email addy, and I'll mail you my COD2 cookable nades mod. When you get it, just drop it in the COD2 demo 'main' folder and go start your game.
There will NOT be any sprint in the full version of the game by default, but I'm doing a mod for that now. It was felt that the general consensus was that the majority of the COD community did NOT want sprint and cooking available by default. Believe it or not, most people in the community think sprinting and cooking is lame.
Also, a lot ot things were 'deliberately' left out by IW for the modding and mapping community to have fun with.
hmm that just sounds like an lazy way to do things or else a rushed way to make sure the game is realeased when it is. Also it seems like they're trying to milk us for more money, no dout they'll release and expansion pack for it like uo with sprinting and vechiles etc. that they could of easily put in cod2.
