From my perspective, I feel I am the only one who really feels this way about the Call of Duty games that from Call of Duty 4 they have all been very over-hyped and over-priced,
So just to get an idea on what I would say the rest of the hardcore gamers out there think about this franchise I thought I would come to the great Overclock.net.

Also what do you think of people that only play Call of Duty and say that that is the best game out there when there are stellar titles like Killzone 3, Alan Wake, Uncharted and God of War III etc...
There is so much more to gaming than "CoD" as some refer to.

Please comment and vote in the poll if you wish.
Thanks in advance.

post #4 of 65
It's fun, but yes. A bit over hyped. Just like Halo.
At the beginning it was all great, then it got worse and worse.

It is over hyped, I haven't touched a CoD game since CoD2.

Overhyped? Yes

Good game? Not so much, I'd call it barely tolerable.

It's very overhyped. I'd say glitchy, mediocre online play that gets boring quickly, coupled with extremely frustrating single-player campaigns with a generic good-vs-evil plot that I never remember once I beat the game.

Overhyped indeed. Overpriced? That too.
