Glad I didn't preorder it.
  • maps are too small

  • the HUD is incredibly close, so you have no wide range of vision (yeah yeah, you have a mask/helmet on, so what)
  • the gameplay feel, the killstreaks, the sound it makes when you kill somebody and how it shows the points...MW2
  • 'Hardcore' settings, and the graphics are still comparably worse than Crysis 1
  • controls are clunky, and good luck trying to switch suit modes in the heat of a battle

Basically, only the modern day CoD tools will enjoy this. That's the TL;DR summary.
It's obvious you didn't play much..
1. You can use Q and E to switch to armor mode/cloak mode.
2. Advanced mode alone beats Crysis Wars on max(graphics wise).
3. I don't enjoy any CoD past 4, so you're wrong about your last "statement"
4. You can change the controls, jack up the sensitivity, use e/q to switch to the suit modes (using the mouse is for *******) . (noclunkyness unless you don't know how to do these simple things)
5. The game isn't "too fast paced" I don't know what you're playing but this isn't that bad..Try playing Unreal or Quake.
6. Maps are fine, one map is small(rooftops) and the other is quite large (pier).
7. You're being ignorant as ****.
8. Kill streaks are gay, customizing your load isn't.

Im honestly unimpressed, played about an hour and a half and reached level 7. It feels like im constantly lagging, and maybe I am, but my ping is only 152, I dont know if this is due to servers or my connection but it feels like there is significant delay. Also, I do think the gameplay feels a little fast paced and it bothers me to no end that while the first shot out of stealth will drop all your energy it will not actually do any dmg, if i aim at someone's head and fire it drops me out of stealth and takes my energy but the shot will not kill the target. Also, it feels very limited, this may be due to the demo but there is very little variety and 90% of my deaths consist of people spraying 30+ lmg rounds at me.

Edit: I am also pretty sure that I was getting significant micro stuttering with my 295, it ran smoothly at hardcore for a while but then it started stuttering, I turned it down to both gamer and then advanced and it still stuttered.

152 ping is a no no. Anything over 65-80 is "lagtastic."

Alright, I normally get about 38 in TF2 and BC2 so I guess its demo servers or something on my end. Additionally, did anyone find the sensitivity to be absurdly high? With my mouse at 3200 dpi I had to put the sensitivity to 5% to get it to what I like.

I first played it on a server in Amsterdam or somesuch and even with a 300 ping it didn't feel overly laggy. It certainly wasn't good, but it was better than most games would be at that ping.

Basically, only the modern day CoD tools will enjoy this. That's the TL;DR summary.
The maps are small, but I wouldn't say too small. Nuketown is too small. These maps are small enough to generally ensure that there is something going on, but even on Skyrise, which is the smaller of the two, I had long periods of no combat. It's not Battlefield, it's not going to have massive maps.

You can't speak to the potential for teamwork the night a demo comes out. Half the people in a given game were playing for their first time and had no clue what was going on. I played a few games of the dropship gamemode (it's like a hybrid of CoD headquarters and domination) and I felt like the only person bothering with the objectives. Luckily everybody else was so bad I could hold it singlehandedly by going into armor mode and tanking ten million billion bullets.

The HUD blows. I don't like how it rocks, the alpha on it is too low which makes it hard to see, and it's just generally crappy.

The gameplay does feel very CoD-ish. It's very easy, you create a class with perks, you use earn killstreaks. The only real variety comes from the suit modes, which is nice since there is very little variety in the weaponry (at least in the demo). I don't want to say that the suit modes are overpowered since its still early, but if you forget to go into armor mode and you engage someone in direct combat who DOESN'T forget, you lose. Period. You are so tanky in armor mode it's ridiculous. The cloak is remarkably effective. I was curious to see just how hard to see a cloaked target would be, and it's quite difficult. It doesn't guarantee a kill either if you use it to sneak up on someone who is fast and capable (or in armor mode).

The killstreaks didn't dictate gameplay like they do in CoD. First of all, you have to collect the dog tags of your victims to earn them, which means you cannot simply camp somewhere remote and shoot people at long ranges. You have to run over their corpse. The orbital strike is very unwieldy and not particularly effective and the gunship takes a while to get, but seemed quite effective, but not gamebreaking.

I don't really care about the graphics. It ran quite well on Gamer for me (70-80 FPS most of the time) but I will say this: they need to label which one represents low, medium and high. Gamer, advanced and hardcore don't tell me anything. The controls felt clunky to me at first, but I got used to it. If I had advanced binding capabilities I would certainly bind armor mode into my fire key because there is no reason not to go into armor mode.

Yea.. I agree multiplayer past COD4 hasn't been my favorite. I went back to CS. and thats the truth. I'm not just bashing. I love the SP on all COD's.

I'm still trying to make an account. The Servers are getting their asses kicked. Still hasn't went through after 20 minutes. I'm about to close and try again.
