Re: Call of Duty 5 SUCKS! Dont waste your money!

On the release day for a fairly major game, I'm able to find ONE review. One.

What's up?

Re: Call of Duty 5 SUCKS! Dont waste your money!

I bought it because I read a review of it in the XBOX magazine awhile back. The way review sounded it seemed like ti was going to be a great game, but all it is is more of the same like COD 3. One thing I heard was you had more paths in order to attack something like in COD 4, but in reality you are really stuck going down endless trenches and halways in order to get to your objective.

Well anyway, it is good to have friends in high places. I work with a guy whose wife works at the local gamestop and I did him a favor once so she took it back and gave me a full refund instead of making me exchange it for another copy.

If you really want to play it I say wait until the price goes down or play COD 3 since it is essentially the same game. It is not worth 60 bucks.

Re: Call of Duty 5 SUCKS! Dont waste your money!

Pkerr, I started out on easy to get a feel for the game then switched to the hardest setting and it still was stupid. The other characters get in the way, always seem to be standing behind you when you are trying to move to escape a gernade or enemy fire.

I got it yesterday because I pre-ordered it from gamestop.

Re: Call of Duty 5 SUCKS! Dont waste your money!

Found another review - very positive - here:

http://cheatcc.com/xbox360/rev/callo...warreview.html

One note about multiplayer: some possible balancing issues in kill streak rewards:

All is not rosy with the Multiplayer mode, however. Kill-Streak Rewards are too powerful and stay with you after you die. Achieving five kills is challenging but certainly attainable. As such, lots of players will be unleashing overly-intense mortar strikes and the resulting series of 'earthquaking' death is annoying. Once you've gotten five kills, getting seven is a no brainer, especially with a well-placed artillery strike. Moreover, because rewards don't disappear after death, players are best served to hold onto the reward until they die. When they respawn, they can then 'Unleash the Dogs' and have their puppies take out another seven victims, restoring the power and fueling a vicious cycle of broken mayhem. Players should lose the reward if they're killed; use it or lose it, I say!



Fortunately, a patch has been developed by Treyarch that addresses the overpowered artillery strike and a number of map hole exploits found in the beta on day one, so the retail online game should be quite smooth.
My experience in the Beta is that the 5 kill mortar strike is VASTLY more powerful (in that it covers more surface area) than the airstrike in COD4 ... that might get annoying.

http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/call-of-duty-5/928937p1.html

Gamespy gave it a 4 and a half.

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/927/927055p2.html

IGN threw it a 9.2!

Starting to get pretty optimistic here!

Activision embargo, probably.

Those issues were already fixed a couple of weeks ago, including the on-going KillBonus thing. As for the strike power-yeah, it covers a big area but once you realize there's a pattern to the shells landing you can (sometimes) escape. I've actually stood in the middle of one, watching my panicking teammates die and shells land all around me without being touched. You just have to remember the final shell comes a bit late and off-angle from the rest...

I'm waiting to see how long it takes Treyarch to fix the dog glitch. I found it on my own and haven't really seen anyone else use it so I'm staying mum, but there is a way to survive a direct dog attack without killing the beasties.

If you go to the link Twilight (?) posted that I quoted here, there are a number of different reviews in the bottom left column.

I'm gonna pick it up today after work!

My feeling is this: it's probably not much more than a heavily skinned COD4. But I fuckin' adore COD4, so if it's just more COD4 in a different setting, fine with me!

Competitive coop sounds brilliantly fun, too.

Enjoy Gears 2, it's effin top notch stuff.
I am so far.
I finished it last night, and it was incredible. Just when I was getting to the point where I'd had enough and was ready for it to end, it changed things up in a big way and I was cackling like a lunatic right through to the end.

Bring on Gears 3. Now.

Some news on what would be the 6th COD game (IW) it has been pushed back from Q4 2009 to Q1 2010 to allow extra work though don't expect it to be called COD 6 my guess is something with Modern Warfare in the title again.
Wow, Activision can't be happy about that. What are they going to do without a big COD release at Christmas time?
Guitar Hero: Call of Duty edition, obviously!

I went out and bought a copy of Far Cry 2 and I like this game MUCH better than COD 5.
