What does an engine have anything to do with anything? That's like saying you wont play a valve game unless they make source 2.0

People keep forgetting that even though there's a new CoD every year, it's also alternated between different developers. That said, even though they basically have 2 years to make each game, they're all pretty awful.

2 years is way too short of a development time these days. Not to mention, at least with the last few CoD games, they can pull stuff from the previous games to use in the new releases and market it as something "new" and make you pay for something that you may already have.

Been very disappointed with the way Activision has been pulling the CoD series the last couple years. CoD4 and WaW were pretty good and I have quite a few hours logged into them. I thought MW2 was going to be fine, until I started noticing hardly any graphical changes, same basic gameplay, and the annoying server finder in multiplayer. I bought BlackOps thinking it'd be slightly better, but all I ended up buying it for was Zombies. That pretty much lead to not buy MW3 and no other CoD game until SOMETHING major changes with the whole game, not just using the same basic feel over and over again.

At least with Source, Valve is using the same basic engine, but adding new technologies with every release of it, but with the past couple CoD games, it's looked terrible and pretty much the same. I told my dad (who has bought a majority of CoD games) not to get MW3 because of how similar it was to the previous games, but he went out and bought it anyways. He basically played it for a grand total of 20 minutes on multiplayer, saw how terrible it looked and his score ended up being terrible (something like 2-15, which he normally gets somewhere in the 10-4 ratio) and went back to BF3. I don't know how CoD players can say that the game looks and plays fine, but it doesn't.

We'll wait and see what Actvision says about this "Iron Wolf" game and what it actually turn out to be. The first thing that comes to mind when I see "Iron Wolf" is the stand-up roller coaster that was removed at Six Flags Great America. Was possibly the roughest steel coaster I've ever been on, especially since you stand-up on it. My ears were in pain after getting off of that. I'm glad some other Six Flags park is getting that POS.

I agree, but I don't know about 2 years not being enough I mean ubisoft seems to do a fairly good job with AC every 2 years, though I suppose technically the last 3 were 'parts' to a single game.

edit: In hindsight comparing AC to CoD development time is probably pretty stupid seeing as ubisoft have a huge team working on AC and CoD has a small team both in infinity ward and treyarch.

Well. They're calling it an "epic first person shooter", and you don't just toss that word around. That word means serious business.

Well, it's different if you've been working on a series, since it's technically been in development for quite a long time from the 1st game to the last. If you know how to utilize those 2 years, then you can turn out a pretty great game in that amount of time. Metroid Prime is a great example of a game that had a short development time (something like 18 months) and it turned out one of the best games ever for the Gamecube, and ranks up there with the Half-Life series, Bioshock, and many others. Had a Metacritic score of 97! Heck, playing the Wii port of it, it's still a great looking game.

This almost feels like they've pulled the previous game, re-arranged the levels, redid the voice acting, and threw in a couple new maps. Something that sounds like it took less than a year. They've really done nothing too technical to the engine itself, which I'd expect to take a bit longer. I guess having a year to do development, 1/2 a year to put it together and the rest playtesting until release would put working on a new engine on the back burner.

Although with MW3, you've got the whole Infinity Ward breakup in there too, so I guess I can blame part of the way the game turned out on that.

Cod is a good singleplayer game but only if you own a console and gamefly subscription, I don't think its worth paying $60 but for a rental it should be ok to have a quick 5 hour fun.
