I recently have gotten into this particular PC venue because of the online multiplayer capabilities.I am kind of new to the scene, but I love this game and what it can do.I have a problem with a few things though.I can't stand all the bunny hopping screw offs that I come up against online.I voiced my complaint during a match, and the reply was that,"people are so quick to condemn something that works".My reply was that no one in WWII would jump around like that to keep from getting shot.Their reply was that this is a game, not a simulator.I told them that the idea/concept of this venue was to replicate WWII in a fashion that we could experience it.He then replied they did not have the health packs laying around in WWII.Valid point taken.I also recently read where someone was complaining about the Russian Machine gun and how most players are drawn to it because of the heavy fire rate and magazine load.This person also went on to say that he was sure that every Russian fighter used it back in WWII,sarcastically speaking I'm sure.Now I know that there are going to be many good/bad points on each side of the fence, with no set solution in sight.I ask of the rest of the gaming world who loves this particular venue, is this just a game that allows you to kill others online with cheesed out manuevers as ,bunny hopping and, the newly famous, jump up & and go prone in midair "trick" or a simulator(with arcade like qualities) to experience the action of WWII?I personally think the game is terrific in which a person can gain skills to many effects as shooting,flanking,counter flanking,and other strategies.I do not use the bunny hop METHOD(you know who you are & what I mean) or the jump & prone trick because it is a cheesy way to get an advantage for a kill.Just my opinion.As far as the camping out & sniping that, to me, just follows what most real soldiers would do in war.I know, I know if you can't beat 'em join 'em! Well not me players,I will take it like a man and give it like a man, no matter what. :moon: Thank for Listening, Give your two cents worth!!!

These are commonly posted points. I consider CoD a game, it was made a game and will remain a game. A WWII simulator would probably not be much fun, as realism can only go so far before it crosses the line in to no fun stupidity land.

Erm... You could try a game called WWII online, quite a good MMOFPS... Vehicles and stuff, land sea and air combined in a massively multiplayer scope... More realistic than COD... Bullets drop in height when you fire them at long distances, realistic damage and some nice little features... I think they're doing a 30 day free trial, but I'm not sure if it's still on... Whatever, IMO it's worth the DL. That could be what you're searching for.

Call of Duty is a game. If it were a Simulator, the engine would be being used by the Armed Forces. Games like Operation Flashpoint or Beachhead are used by the Armed Forces because of their realism and authenticity. Call of Duty is an FPS not a Soldier Sim.

Hey Mistik, i agree,the more i play the more they become easier to handle.What I am trying to figure out is,how come in some cases you are all over a person with your selected weapon,you've fired upon them first and continue to fire but, they just seem to only take one or two pops at you and then you're history.is that an aquired skill?same goes with the tanks in UO.i have been sniping on hurtgen on a TDM my guys are way far away, i am supporting them in thier engagement,i hit my targets not with head shots.they have thompson blazing and running at me and they connect with a headshot & you know the rest....I don't want to seem like i'm complaining(i love this game) and i am becoming better at it.i just don't get the inconsistencies and how a person can hope to ever get to the top of the ladder with these things happening in the game.I really hate the guys who spend half of their time calling you a hack or worse when they aren't having a good game.i don't expect to rule everygame(i have actually pulled a few out of my ass a couple of times and won)I live for those moments and hope they will come more often.Is it better to join a clan and learn how to find out little tricks?I discovered something the other night playing with some clan members,they used their grenades as trip mines in allies. How is that done can anyone tell me?

My opinion is that CoD is more of a game then a simulator, mostly for the reasons posted, id it were a sim, the army would use it....
