Gadget Mill: Lately we have gone back to playing the Call of Duty series on our PS3. This includes games such as the legendary Call of Duty 4 up to the latest Black Ops 2. As you would probably know Black Ops 2 is packed with way more features and customisation in comparison to Call of Duty 4 which is more or less plain and simple in comparison. However with that said and to be honest we seemed to be enjoying ourselves way more playing the classic COD4 in comparison to the other later titles.
Our first instinct for this was that it was all down to nostalgia reasons – playing old maps such as Crash, Crossfire etc. Doing so did have a slight impact on our feelings towards the game. But the more we played COD4 the more it felt fluid and balanced. So we decided to give Black Ops 2 a shot again to figure out what went wrong; after all Treyarch did emphasise how balanced Black Ops 2 was meant to be right?
