CVG: World at War needs to stun or it could damage the franchise says senior producer.
Here is how you can refine it, set it some where else besides WWII.
I don't think WWII needs anymore redefining.
Agreed, enough WW2 games already. I will still be playing Call of Duty 4 long after Call of Duty 5 releases.
none of you have any idea of how good it might be, don't be so quick to judge
you can redefine a dead horse as many ways as you want. It is still a dead horse.
have said it better. i think they need to stop doing this kind of games for awhile. this is just me but i dont see cod5 doing well. what attracted alot of new ppl like myself to the franchise was because they moved from ww2 story line to something modern that alot of us can relate to (wars happening now). oh well i shall take my business somewhere else cod5 is NOT getting my money
See you all in COD 4 for another year!
I can see it now. Where have all of our sales gone?
its been "redefined" way too many times already.
With Hell's Highway coming out soon that will be enough WWII gaming we need. Modern Warfare is what fans want and enjoy, the better guns and atmospher. WWII was fun last gen but now that we have been given a taste of how much fun FPS should be they want to take it away and give us left overs.
But but we added flame throwers!!! So....you want a cookie?
I actually like WW2 games, I'll be picking this up (if it's actually a good game).
Yes I enjoyed COD4 but stopped playing it about a month ago now (too many kids playing it now and there is little to no real team play). What annoys me is that everyone is so anti COD5 before it has even been released. Hell, we have not even seen any gameplay footage as yet nor do we know much about the single player campaign other than a few details about where it will be set. I still have fond memories of playing through COD2 (COD2 single player was much better than COD4 single player) then enjoying many hours playing its on-line mode. Now, if COD5 is potentially going to be COD2 but on steroids with the same addtictive on-line play as in COD4 then this could definately be one to watch out for. So what if its set in WWII, if the games merrits more than outweigh the period it is set within then people will buy it. As a final note, after playing Battlefield I just hope they increase the map size of any future COD4 game. Would make it a challenge for snipers anyway.
I'm gonna wait and see how this title turns out in the finished product before trivially casting it aside. Mainly because Treyarch knows CoD3 doesn't have the best "rep" for the series and IMHO that should have inspired a need in them to prove themselves this time 'round. Couple this with the HUGE success of IW's modern game, it only seems natural that Treyarch feels the need for their next CoD NOT to be considered a step backward in gameplay even though they're taking us back in time.
i think this will probably (maybe hopefully) be the last WWII game we see from the cod series. the reason being that the series was being developed by two separate studios, Treyarch and Infinity Ward. since infinity ward was working on cod4, it only makes sense that treyarch was working simultaneously on cod5, and given the release time, could not scrap all their development based on the recent success of its sister game. just a theory. ;]
...that Infinity Ward have said they could not make another modern warfare game. In my opinion there still has not been a COD game that has captured the real emotional intensity of WWII. You watch a series like Band of Brothers or World at War, or even a movie like Saving Private Ryan and no COD game even comes close to invoking the same emotions and feelings you get when watching them. COD4 may be a highly polished shooter but its still too clean and pristine and has the emotional depth of a spoonful of water. Sure there are some great moments of action but you never really got a feeling that you were figthing in the same streets where many had died before you, or where unspeakable acts of horror had been performed.
yeah i see what your getting at, but whens the last time there was a WWII game that did that? i think they are afraid to go there, for fear of controversy i suppose. i agree though, given the setting, i believe it should be emotionally provocative. they need an excellent storyline though, maybe just follow one single character and his journey, instead of taking little dips into several different people. that way we could form more of an emotional bond with the character. maybe if they get kojima to develop a cod game haha ;p
i will wait and see on this...
Just because this game is set in WWII won't automatically make it crap. WWII is not a dead horse genre and it can be improved upon. That being said, this game WILL suck massive dirty nutsacks if Treyarch dev's it. They make crap plain and simple.
flame throwers will be a nice touch. just think about when you shot someone using one Booooooommm their vaper. But I don't think this will do as good as COD4
boo-hoo, quit your f*ckn crying! If everyone made a modern shooter then im sure after a while you would get sick of playin modern shooters. battlefield:bc,cod4,farcry2,fe ar,blacksite:area 51, and on and on!there is enough kind of shooters to go around for everyones taste. if you dont like ww2 then dont play it, but just quit your f*ckn crying.
The only COD I played was 3 and I wasn't at all impressed w/ how they depicted WW2. I've haven't played COD4 yet.
