@Pyjama, are the graphics good then? I've played a Wii enough to notice it's not a graphics beast tongue2.gif

Really? I quite like Wii graphics, because they deliberately don't try to be realistic, and I think the result looks better than games which do.

Ts4EVER;4682172On the sniper at rifle: apparently the soviet did experiment with that concept. While the running-and-gunning with it in CoD is bullshit, it might actually be a nice idea for FH2. Since you'll have to do an AT-Rifle and a scope for the mosin nagant anyway, why not modelling some sort of home-made scoped AT-rifle? Not spawnable of course, but what about a super-rare insider pickup kit on the highest building of Stalingrad? ;)

Did the Germans ever scope an AT rifle? Only reason I ask is that I heard about one of the top German snipers that used one occasionally to take out enemy AT guns. So did he get these jobs because he was just really good at sneaking up close enough to use his iron sights on these AT weapons or did they scope a handful of these AT rifles?

"The more shots a sniper fires, the more chances the defenders have to locate him, so they often try to draw fire, sometimes by offering a helmet slightly out of concealment. A tactic successfully employed in the Winter War by the Finns is known as "Kylmä-Kalle" (Cold Charlie).[25] They used a shop mannequin or other doll dressed as a tempting target, like an officer. The doll was then presented as if it were a real man sloppily covering himself. Usually, Soviet snipers were unable to resist the temptation of an apparently easy kill. Once the angle where the bullet came from was determined, a shot of a large calibre gun such as a Lahti L-39 "Norsupyssy" ("Elephant rifle") anti-tank rifle was shot at the sniper's direction to eliminate him."

This sort of implies that if you use an AT rifle as an anti-sniper weapon, then the weapon would have a scope to compete with the large range a scoped rifle would have.

Here's a Wii game that's really taking the engine to a whole new level. The Conduit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The Conduit" reminds me of Mass Effect. Anyone played that?

That looks pretty cool. It's weird, though. On the cover, the ball-thing is on the left hand, and in the screenshot, the ball is presumably in the right hand.

Superb game, it beats the hell out of CoD4: Modern Pansiware.

Yeah, like others have said the sound of the 1p weapons are really dissapointing, but the game offers lot of action, great effects and improved graphics to the CoD series. An impressive heir of CoD2.

Von Mudra, it has loading screens, and good ones, btw, with a mix of real videos and 3d animation, download the patch and update maybe your graphic drivers, it's a problem in your end. And in my opinion most of the missions are nicely designed, Peleliu is a blast. But as others have said the hardest level gets ridiculous with those goddamned grenade spammers bots, it kills the tactic factor of a hard level, BiA:HH got this perfect, CoD still fails in this.

The MP part is a crap, like usual in CoD, but well, I never was a fan of its MP side, just SP for me.
