Seems fine/good. Plays very much like other ground based cods. I skipped the last couple modern ones so it feels fresher again than someone that has been playing cod non-stop perhaps.

I have played plenty of mw2/3 + blops 1-3 and there is no way you can call this terrible if you like cod. This is the mcdonalds of gaming, you know what you are getting.

This is pretty much it. It's a CoD game and if you haven't played one in awhile you might enjoy it.

Lots of cheesy tactics like diving to the ground anytime you see an enemy. Prepare to get frustrated by try hards.

Oh good, it's BF2 all over again.

So is the M1A1 good? That was my favorite in CoD2. Nobody used it and it gave you the fastest movement in the game.

I wonder if the reason they've been putting so many WWII era guns into IW is a hedge for when Dubya Dubya Two players say, "gently caress this boring poo poo," and come back to jet packs off the ground...

I think it's more of IW being creatively bankrupt and just throwing them in because they have no idea what the gently caress they're doing.

The Carbine is fun and good. Compared to the Garand it requires an extra shot to kill at close to mid range, but the high fire rate gives you more of a chance on these tiny maps plus it isn't heavily affected by aimpunch/flinch like the Garand is.

They already remade COD4. They added micro transactions, ruined the spawns, and charged more for the dlc than it originally cost.

I'm not sure if it's a loading, or some weird HDD issue, but my game has this sorta micro stutter that is really, really obnoxious. Game doesn't feel smooth even though it's running at 80+ FPS.

Maybe it's just because I skipped the last like 4 CODs but this felt really fun. After playing Destiny 2's garbage PVP it felt fun to actually shoot a man and kill him. I only broke even for the most part but it seemed pretty fun. Like the Gibraltar map a lot, not as crazy about the Ardennes.

Will probably pick this up even though I'll probably just keep playing Destiny.

Same. The last CoD I played was MW2's free MP weekend. Before that it was way too many hours of 4. It's different in that everyone is zooming around, but still fun.

Not $60 fun, but I'll enjoy playing it some this weekend.

I'm pretty sure this game has now ruined my shotgun fetish in other games.

Other games simply don't have incendiary shotgun shells.

I'm going to have to buy this, aren't I?

Destiny.

Ardennes looks like it was cobbled together in 15 minutes on a whim. That map is a little underwhelming, but the other maps are alright. It's hard for me to hate on a game that has a silenced Grease Gun in it...

goes to world war 2- an era that has been mined the gently caress out by cod- with even worse supply drops

Now that I think about it, I haven't tried Advanced Warfare 1 at all. Looks hella cool somehow.

No. There is never a chance that CoD PC has a player base.

Not buying this game but I'm having enough fun with the beta. I've not played a CoD since Blops1 so not having that burnout is probably a big contributing factor to enjoying the game. Loving the unironic STEAM reviews raging about being able to be a black woman.

Haven't played a CoD since the first Blops and I missed the console beta. Most of the criticism I've seen so far is that it's just like every other CoD, so assuming I barely remember what that even means and I'm not burnt out on it, is it fun?

I've been getting most of my FPS fix from Battlefield 1, which I'm still having fun with, but I am oddly kinda ready to play a WW2 shooter again. I know CoD is way twitchier than BF and has insanely low ttk, so I'm slightly worried that teenager reflexes have atrophied to the point that I'll just be getting mercilessly slaughtered nonstop, but the new modes look interesting and the dedicated servers + high tick rate sounds very enticing.

I've actually found the opposite, as an aged 34 year old. The low ttk means that if I play smart, flank, and get the drop on people, I can kill them much more easily. In other fps games, even if I get the drop on people, they can do some crazy 360 no scope bullshit and turn it around on me.

Weird. I definitely ran in to a couple, but it was like 2 in over three hours of playtime, didn't seem terribly widespread.
