i like 1
I didn't vote cause I find them both equal. I definatly like the American campaign in UO better. I like the first part of the British campaign from Vanilla CoD but the second part of the British campaign in UO is better then the second part of original. I like the very beginning of UOs Russian campaign better and the ending of oringial CoD's Russian better but inbetween is the same for me. So I'll make a diagram cause that was probaly hard to understand. Good parts of Vanilla Begining of British Ending of Russian Good parts of UO All of American Ending of British Beginning of Russian Ok I guess UO is slightly better
Definatley CoD for me, I think that in UO they took the game away from its strength. Being an FPS The tank missions in regular CoD were an awsome addition/change of pace to compliment the FPS part of the game. But in UO, there were far too many vehicle bassed missions, and that took the game away from its core. Besides, the vehicle missions weren't all that great anyway.
For atmosphere and immersion the opening sections of CoD Vanilla (Danwville) take some beating. When did you take cover behind cow corpses before CoD? I remember playing the demo of that repeatedly until the actual game came out. Defending the bridge (is it Pegasus?) with the plucky moustachioed Brits is also good although the seemingly endless supply of marauding Germans stretches your credulity a tad. Satlingrad is immersive and cinematic and a bit more measured on the number of enemies. I don't much like the chateau - it's too straight up and down. I can't remmeber the other missions too much so that speaks for itself. UO is good but I still like the start of CoD best. I hate the airborne mission in UO - it turns into a tedious chore when you keep dying and just trying to nail enough bandits to survive a few seconds longer - a good idea but didn't work for me. The Foy mission is evocative in a similar way to Dawnville (my favourite MP map too - controversial I know). I thought the ending of UO was much less focussed than CoD. On my first run through, the game seem to have ended arbitrarily when I thought I still had enemies to repel etc... It seemed quite random. Don't get me wrong they're both excellent games. CoD2 has a lot to live up to. Have I rambled on long enough now :naughty: :o
