Praet0rianI hear that that sucks.

Nah, it depends on what type of gamer you are... If you like COD deathmatch games you probably won't like it, but if you favor more tactical FPSing, it's quite good fun... Even though you die quite a lot... Well, I found it quite immersive, despite the graphics, although I don't really care if they're super good. It was rather fun for me... Hiding under bushes waiting for tanks to pass then shooting them in the sides with an ATR and imagining them going "S**T!!!* In whatever country they are. Plus, I like it when you're really in a badly bogged down battle, and air reinforcements come... The Allies had a pretty good airforce last time I saw it... Plus, you can watch plane dogfights... Well, that's my opinion, dunno about you.

RevenCall 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.

Heh, don't forget America's Army. :D It was even MADE by the Army. :p I'd consider Call of Duty just a game. If it were a simulator, you'd only have 1 life in the game...

I dl'ed WWIIOL a couple days ago, $20 for an activation code, and then you get 30 days free. I cancelled it the next day because I didn't like it. I get to play it until that 30 days is up, but I think it's a little too realistic. Like said earlier there is a line that can be crossed, and for me, WWIIOL crossed it. I also don't have the patience to read a huge online manual for a game just to understand what is going on. When I did finally find combat I was stuck in this building with a bunch of other allies and it was being blasted by two German tanks, so it was impossible to do anything. It is realistic though, just too realistic for me. If you are looking for that though WWIIOL may be a good way to go. Just hope you like reading a huge online manual. =P

I also didn't like the quality of gamers that were playing in that battle. Not to say all of them are like that; just you know, the 7 I did see in like 2 hours of playing, seemed like a bunch of 12 year olds playing their parents' account's.

I agree. People might actually start following the ROE and fight as a unit. Personally my favorite two WWII games are Forgotten Hope and the tournaments sponsered by BFE, and CTI-44 for Operation Flashpoint.

WOW, you bothered reading the manual? I just asked the people, they were really helpful to me... There's even a help channel which you can tune into. Most of the people I played with were mature, and 1/2 of them were experienced... Heck, I even met a 2 star general who had been playing for 2 YEARS! See what I mean, you either love it or hate it or don't have any money to pay for the monthly fee. Anyway, I think that should wrap it up, back to the COD stuff hopefully now.. wink wink.

I believe from what I remember on their site that on Sundays they have scheduled training. This weekend I am going to check that out. I went on their training server a couple of times but no one was on. That was mid-week though. I'm going to continue playing it until my 30 days is up, maybe I judged too early, so we'll see if I can get the hang of it. Do you play it Whitlow? Or have you? If so, would you say that it's worth the money? I was just looking for a new online fps at the time. One thing I didn't like is that I have to use my joystick to drive tanks and such, I know it can be changed, just seems complicated.

Well Operation Flashpoint came close enough to real life not only through its overall realism, but because of its two-torso-shot-kill and how you can only save once per mission.
