CoD4 vs CoD5

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So I already have CoD4 and I played it A LOT. Before I bought it I heard a lot about this game and people were always raving on about it.

As for CoD5, well I havent heard that much about it. I played the beta versions and thought it was OK but nothing more than a CoD4 mod

Is it worth the buy, are there more people on CoD5 than on CoD4?

CoD5 is really just a reskin of CoD4 but surprisingly enough I enjoyed it more. I thought the single player campaign was much more fun and the multi player maps are much more fun to play than CoD4. There's something so satisfying about calling in dogs over a helicopter but that's just me.

I've owned them both and for a while CoD4 was my favorite fps and I had that unexplainable hatred for CoD5 but that all went away when I actually played the game.

It's alot like comparing gears 1 to 2 in my opinion. It's pretty much a reskin with more open maps and impressive graphics, but if you didn't like the original this won't change your mind.

Seeing as how I just said 5 was better than 4, I should probably get to going before I start getting flamed.

I'd really didn't like COD5 Nearly as much as COD4. like said 5 was just a reskin. I liked the campaign and the multiplayer much more in 4 than 5. Graphics took a step down in 5 from 4. I am a huge fan of 4 (made it to 10th prestige online, all gold guns) 5 was really a disappointment for me.

I'm pretty much with Cinema on this one. I promised myself that I wouldn't spend $50 on something that barely deserved being called a mod. To my surprise the game started to grow on me. Although I did hate leveling up to unlock certain weapons at times it gets better as you go.

I haven't messed with single player as much as multi. The sound is a bit weak IMO but the graphics are awesome along with the gore. I have yet to play this game competitively so I can't have any input on that. If you like the WWII feel, this game will rank amongst your favorites (maybe thats just me). I can't wait until DLC comes out with new maps. The maps that were in the beta seem bigger in the retail but it could just be me.

On a scale of 1-10, I would have to give this around a 8-9.

I personally think that Campaign of W@W is horrendously unoriginal, ripped off from several sources, like COD2, movies like enemy at the gates, ect ect. Sutherland's voice acting does not save it either. The guns sound weak and whimpy, in fact the entire sound engine is horrible, all the voice acting sounds like its on another dimension, it does not blend in at all with the game. Plus the story has no continuity, and unlike Modern Warfare, I did not care about the characters or whats going to happen to them.

the multilayer would of been a lot better if it the sound engine was revised, I mean I really hate the way guns sounded in the game. but the multilayer is a direct rip off of Modern warfare just reskined with some bigger maps.

COD5 was a waste for me.. It was COD4 really.. Never had a chance with CAL.. Which was about right, as I was IM for COD4.

COD5 SP = Movies + Movies + Movies + Rip of other games..

all it is..
buy cod4

COD4 is better than COD5 hands down.

And here is my take on it.

1) The sound is horrid in COD5 and you certainly don't hear enemies walking towards you like you did in COD4.
2) The interface is a reskin of COD4 as stated so nothing new.
3) The perks are all the same, but reskinned except with the vehicles as there is a vehicle perk you receive as well.
4) Speaking of vehicles the tanks are overpowered in multiplayer. Once one team has the tanks they often tip the scales and it doesn't take a genius to use the tanks, but it does take a crazy amount of fire power to take them out.
5) Some people like the dogs, but it is hard to tell which direction they are coming from given the horrid sound and to be honest I don't think killing dogs in a game is all that fun or appropriate.
6) The multiplayer maps are def. bigger and allow for more people, but they aren't as strategic in my opinions. The battles feel more chaotic.
7) Story line in my opinion was better in COD4, but the voice acting was probably better in COD5.
8) The one perk COD5 does have over COD4 is Zombie Nazi mode. Man, it is great times....

All in all COD5 has some different maps that people may like and Zombie mode, but it lacks quite a bit as well and in more cases than not I think COD4 outclasses it. Plus I think World War 2 has been used way too much in video games. But, I put that aside and still think while it is a decent game, does not beat out COD4.
