CoD 5

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I'd like to get back into FPS on consoles, the last CoD I played was Call of Duty 2, so it's been a while, I usually stick to PC for that genre.

Have any of you guys checked out World at War yet? Got any opinions.. is it entertaining, is it lame. If I get it it'll be on 360 instead of PC so I can play with my pals who come over and i'm kind of slim on fun games since I beat the games in The Orange Box, and GTA 4 is just not so fun anymore.

I really love it. But, it all depends on whether you like the modern day or WW2 genre. If WW2 ain't for you, then CoD4 is the way to roll.

You'll no doubt get a load of haters in this thread saying how Treyarch just copied IW and how it is rubbish, but don't listen to them, it's a very fun game. As i said before, it just depends on what you like

COD4 and COD5 are both awesome games on PC, i assume they are great on console if you like to play like that.

Agree.
CoD W@W is almost the same as CoD 4. They both look good and have captivating storylines.
Its all about whether youre into WW2 or realtime.
I have them both and love them.

I'm going to prove you right on this.

Treyarch copied Infinity War - IMO. Last time I checked, IW first implemented the specialty perks, and leveling up. COD WAW simply copied this, and its blatantly obvious since cod3 pretty much blew. COD2 was way better than Treyarch's COD3. I'm not trying to play fanboy, but COD WAW is simply a knockoff of cod4 except it takes place in ww2 era.

I own both, and definitely regret buying COD:WAW

I will admit some of the co-op stuff is pretty cool, but other than that I think its pretty much fail.

But that doesn't make it a bad game. They took success and made it even better. In my opinion, they have made it more fun. Plus, the game hardly cost a lot... £20.

you have to be kidding me?!? They took success and made it worse, no real improvements on anything. No new ground is broken here. And adding excessive gore is not breaking new ground.

let us know what you think. I tried playing the game while not being overly critical, and I am sure I would of liked it if it wasnt for the weak sound engine.

Sound engine? Your *****ing about the sound engine? Christ.

I'm kinda into history so naturally WaW was pretty fun for me. Graphics are more "polished", campaign is more "epic" in sense, way more enemies on screen, and the zombie mode is hella fun. Plus, whipping germans with the PPsh-41 is insanely fun.
