Is it just me or does Quake III engine need to go away and stay away? I mean, it was good in it's time, but this game just plays and more importantly, FEELS lame. I'm not usually the pessimistic poster or "troll" that bashes games and other things people enjoy, but there's just something about Call of Duty's weaknesses that irk me and has made me feel so inclined to speak on the matter. If this game came out 2 years ago alongside Medal of Honor, I would probably consider it a great game. But the gameplay, graphics and sounds are all mediocre in my opinion. The voice acting is way too over-the-top and it feels like WWII ARCADE, as opposed to a historic WWII simulation. But hey, the game won many people over. I downloaded it, installed it, played it for 2 minutes and uninstalled it. I'll wait for Brothers in Arms and hope for the best.
bf1942 is way more arcade then cod. How can you not notice that? At least in cod you can take a tank out from one shot in the rear, unlike orininal bf.
Hence why I only play the forgotten hope mod (when I did play the game, it's uninstalled now... too much mp3s taking up my precious memory space). Which in my opinion mixed the perfect balance of realism and arcade action. I never once mentioned BF1942 in my post though, so it's kinda weird for you to bring something like that up.
the game is really really good for my taste, the damage system in tanks really sux, but TEAMPLAY IS 10/10
a map called KHARKOV is the best, 2 main streets, perpendicular to a railway that is the middle of map, tanks and tank destroyers for both teams, and a world of empty houses with unlimited panzerfausts, but, the server is 22 players, 11 each team, 5 by each way, 2 in tanks and 3 covering and iwth a secondary bazoka if the enemy comes, the battles in the railway are huge, and when u are experimented, u can call artillery strike 9/10
I just tried out the demo and I gotta say...wow... What an action-packed game! Never been in that frantic of a situation since...well never! I'll definatly go pick this up!
The demo does this game no justice. Especially the feeling you get during the russian missions, and the british bomber mission was good too. Also you get flamethrowers :naughty:
i think that this game kinda prove that its not always about good graphics ..
BAM you are Right The demo is good cause original COD is good as SP but sucks as MP too much Quake like with bunny hopping
It ceases to amaze me how people call cod up arcadish when playing this which has no iron sites all external views no player leans, realistic ballastics and more hopping goes on in FH then UO.
theres something about iron sites that adds so much to the game then the XT pc turtle symbol light up for a hit and leaning around corners and ducking back for cover seeing great tracers fly by. Feels so much more immersive and less arcadish, like red orchestra too. BF2 should be what we are all looking forward to and has all the above. But when you buy EA you know there will be massive cheating. That il2fb game is very good becuase you know no ones cheating something none of these fps seem to care about, PB is just a false reassurance but we all know and have seen that they do in fact pass PB online. same has went on with all pb games cod sof1 sof2 bf bfv novalogic and many others.
I hope novalogic makes a wwii sim with the hugestmaps and 124 players, they really need to work on thier drivable vechiles but the airwar is fantastic and so is the troop movement iron sites leans and rolls.
wait till BOA comes out I textured a bunch of models in there :)
