Whats so 'great' about COD4? - Page 2

post #11 of 102
CoD4 blows as a competitive game.

Reasons:

1. Hardly ANY recoil on the M4 and all you do is spray.
2. Jumping/proning/crouching do not cause you to lose accuracy while firing.
3. The interface to move around is terrible.
4. Shooting through literally everything is just stupid.
5. You straight up REGENERATE to full health. What a joke!

You can run around in that game and act as randomly as humanly possible and become good. The game takes no skill whatsoever compared to any other competitive FPS. I have played CoD and CoD2 for a long time and CoD4 is definitely a joke compared to either of them.

What skill is it to see someone and quickly right click while holding mouse1? Not to mention that if you don't kill them you can just shoot everything near them to finish them off (they'll be behind SOMETHING you're shooting at)

The game is good for multi player because of how it looks.... but that's about it.

Well for one, you can't customize the guns. They give you a gun, you run and shoot. That is about as advanced as the game gets!

You can't put a silencer on/off.

You can't toggle with scopes.

You only get night vision on certain missions (some without it, you actually need it!)

You can't blow open doors. The other people do it for you.

There are no tactics what so ever! Only tactics you have is what type of damn grenade you want to throw!

All these things that R6 has and COD4 lacks. Yet R6 never took off as much as COD4

The gaming world is backwards

Now i am not saying this is a bad game, i just don't know why people recommend it so highly!
the game is fun,it is easy to pick up but i played the game at the hardened difficulty level and it didn't look like to me that i could survive at that level without tactics.
only thing that cod4 has over other recent fps,is the story and its presentation other than that it basically cod2 without the stupid WW2 weapons and weird russian accents.
didn't play R6 but isn't it stealth based which makes cod4 and R6 quite different,how would you expect them to compare in tactics and gameplay?

INSANITY

the best FPS i have ever played ..and i have played them ALL !!!
That is a little extreme. I have played a lot of the FPS titles that came out this past fall. CoD4 is only better because the online community is so strong. There is always a game, never lag and people dont hack.

IMO, the best game, gameplay/strategy/learning curve/innovation would have to be Crysis. Fully customizable guns and the nano suit. It took a while to learn to play and there was a lot of hacking (the reason I left) so there were a lot of defectors. CoD4 captured the masses last fall and so it has the bandwagon effect. I have played CoD since the beginning and this is just a re-skinned CoD2. I do however have a good time when I play and I get good value for my precious online gaming time.

I think the reviewing process how made us so critical of the games that we can't even enjoy them. Pick a game and if you like it continue to play it. If not, sell it and get another. Different strokes for different folks. Be happy we have so much variety.

Yeah if you haven't played the game on hardened or veteran, you shouldn't really be complaining about how easy or linear it was.

Being able to customize weapons and put friggin silencers on and off...that's never been in CoD. This is not one good guy versus a million bad guys like in R6 or Crysis, this is an army versus an army and having one guy be all tactical while the other good guy grunts just do what you would expect would make the game lose a lot of realism.

I COMPLETELY agree. IDK if it is the latest update (1.5) or what, but it seems like they reduced recoil even more. I'm a sniper by "trade" (Scout/Deagle in CS:S, nothing else, and always use the sniper weapons in any other game), and the lack of recoil totally defeats the purpose of sniping. Why take ONE shot at at a time, when you can slap an ACOG on an M4 and hold the trigger down and get pretty much the same accuracy. Who would ever think I'd miss the "realism" of CS:S LOL.

Recoil on the M4 seems pretty realistic to me. M4's don't have a lot of recoil, small, light bullet. My AR-15 doesn't hardly kick at all.

You need to play online dude. You can add scopes, silencers, and skins for your weapons.

I play on Clanbase and MPL(smaller less known leauge) and such with my clan. I think it is great fun even tho the M4 is the weapon of choice you have all sorts of people using diffrent weapons. It is actually really challenging and its not all about spraying at walls. We have some tactics as we talk over TS. IMO i think it is great fun on Clanbase and MPL. Also if you just run around in a match i promise you will die.

Also the M4 might not have recoil but the RDS waves around all over the place.
