Call of Duty is Still Pretty Great

Every year CGM thinks It's done with Call of Duty, but, without fail, resolve ends up falling apart and CGM finds itself picking up the latest entry to the franchise a couple of months after its release. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Black Ops 2 is Awesome

COD4: Modern Warfare was groundbreaking. Since then, it's been the same engine rehashed with nicer textures but no increase in polygons or anything really. Not to mention, 95% of the community uses SMGs because they are OP. Nuff said.

That Many people use SMG's ? I've always liked AR's. It bother's me not to have range on a gun.

@3-4-5

You don't need a pistol/secondary. Use the PDW with the Overkill Perk (add a 3rd attachment) and just use Extended Clip (67 bullets/round), any reflex or acog or whatever you feel you like the most or none at all, and depending you could use the long barrel for longer more accurate shots and FMJ bullets to go through walls...you get the idea. 67 bullets in one round, and it takes only a few to kill...well you get the point. No AR has that many bullets in a round and the bullets are just about the same damage modifier.

Are you kidding me? Have you played the PS3 version?
ape007  +   1129d ago

Title should be "COD might have some of the worst hit detection on the planet but its still a great game".

Black Ops 2 is terrible, MW3 was a copy and paste job, black ops 1 was a mess.... its like an indie game gone wrong.
AiirJordann23  +   1129d ago
You say its terrible, but you buy it anyways and if you didn't buy it or play it, how can you say its terrible?

AiirJordann23  +   1129d ago
Don't come at me like an asshole I didn't come at you like that it was just a fuckin question so how about you actually play the fuckin game for more than 10 days and then talk shit about and if you don't like it go play battlefield and get off the cod article fuckin retard
ape007  +   1129d ago
maybe on your ps3 bit it's rock solid on my 360
i8urCAKE  +   1129d ago
No.
Summons75  +   1129d ago
If the year was 2008 sure. What's gonna be their excuse next gen when call of duty still has outdated graphics, same boring and uninspired gameplay and half the game missing because its dlc? Sorry activision really needs to rethink cod and give it fresh new gameplay before it can be considered good again.
sdozzo  +   1129d ago
They keep the graphics down to lock frame rate.
Allsystemgamer  +   1129d ago
Rage?????????

I know the framerate is locked but please....
csreynolds  +   1129d ago
With respect, what does frame rate matter when multiplayer lags like a b**ch (at least, on PS3)?
ape007  +   1129d ago
CoD's smooth gameplay is second to non
Summons75  +   1129d ago
Yeah, yearly online lag and cheat-fest ftw!
Ares84HU  +   1129d ago
I can honestly say that I enjoy CoD but not because of it's online. I don't play it much online. I Enjoyed only one CoD for it's online and that was CoD4. I liked the story mode in all of them so far. They were pretty cool to play through and the additional modes each game had like the zombies, the co-op missions and the survival mode were all great.
darren_poolies  +   1129d ago
I loved COD4 & MW2, wasn't a fan of WaW or BO. Liked MW3 (and to my surprise it was the COD I've played the most since 4) but it was just a copy and paste of MW2. And so far I am enjoying BO2 but I have barely played it because I have too many other, better games that I need to finish (Far Cry 3, Dishonored, Borderlands 2, Mass Effect 3, Gravity Rush) I only really play it when my friends are on. I hope there is a major overhaul with the next COD to make it refreshing because I am quite fatigued with the franchise but I am not holding my breath.
CYBERHATER  +   1129d ago
COD World At War. Enough said.
PurpHerbison  +   1129d ago
Only COD I played for more than a month was the first Blops. Kind of had fun picking all the sh*t tier guns. But overall... Just not good enough.
danitanzo  +   1129d ago
I've had fun with BLOPS2 on WiiU, just to play with my brother with online multiplayer, one with the gamepad and one on the big screen. I've skipped over many past COD's though...
csreynolds  +   1129d ago
Call of Duty is great only under the following conditions:

- when multiplayer isn't lagging, disconnecting, or punishing you with lag compensation because you have better internet than everyone else
- when your match/party isn't populated by obnoxious school kids
- when the game's dysfunctional spawn system doesn't have you constantly respawning into enemey gunfire
- when hit detection works
- when the lobby isn't hakced

Sadly, these conditions don't present themselves or come together often enough for my liking... *frowns*
