OMM's Top 5 Console Online Multiplayer Shooters:
#1 is CALL OF DUTY 4: MODERN WARFARE here's why.....
I approve this article. I dont agree with R2 and Socom though. I would put Rainbow 6 Vegas and COD W@W there instead.
Love the multiplayer in World at War. Enjoy it much more than Modern Warfare. Actually, I am downloading the War Map Pack 1 for it right now.
bah...no need to have wold at war on there with modern warfare already up...while waw has vehicles, MW2 still crushes it easily imo....and I would say R2 is far superior to world at war as well... I've never played Socom...considered it, but then saw how gimped it was at release from tech problems...then other games kept coming out and it was too late...but even after all that, its still very popular... i'm just surprised they have 3 PS3 exclusives up on that list...and only 1 360 exclusive...No Gears 2?...I know Gears 2 had a horrible release in terms of crappy online...but so did Socom, so that shouldn't have mattered...
gears online is still broken today, unlike socom which is pretty much fixed because i havent experience a lag since 1.40 came out
Socom! Is he serious??? That broken, buggy, glitch ridden mess of a game that even after 6 months still isn't fixed nor does it have the features advertised on the box and manual. That game is complete sh!t. The other games, yeah I agree with, but Socom? That game has a 63 on metacritic for a reason. And NO, it is not fixed like he says. The latest patch screwed up the spawn points, you spawn all over the place (opposite sides, in rooms you can't get out of, on roofs, etc.) Slant Six are such amateur developers who release patch notes that say they fix, X, Y, Z, but only fix X, then break A,B,C. I am still waiting for the fix regarding reload interruptions that were SUPPOSEDLY FIXED with 1.3.
i dont know how you can not like socom... personally, i think socom is one of the best tactical online shooter on any system this gen. the only feature on the box that its missing playstation home... everything else that states on the box is in the game- only trophies and home were the missing features but trophies already have been patched in. most ps3 exclusives dont even support home, yet they have "playstation home" on the box cover. looks like you havent been on socom for a while because the game has no lags since 1.40
i think its all preference.
call of duty 5 should not be up there because the only differences between that and modern warefare are the maps and campaign.
socom seems like if you get into it and look past the graphics, its a really fun and addictive game. Im getting it in the next month or so.
resistance 2 is fun, but resistance 1 should be in its place
Slantsix messed up a great game... really screw and buggy.. and i was a big socom fan back on PS2... they still haven't given us trophies yet.
what???????? WTF i have couple trophies from socom you clearly have no idea what you are talking about trophies have been patched in a while ago and the lag been fixed since 1.40
