Looking at recent developments in the Call of Duty franchise and it's history, we consider whether the next game will really be on par the rest.
lol what expectations ?
Agree. After Black Ops I almost do not care about the series altogether unless they say "We did something new" then showed me it then makes it not turn into a lag, hacking, and bugged COD. Also too many better games coming out.
If the expectations are to be a horrible game that is overrated and sells alot of copies then yes it will.
600p resolution.....yeah it sure will live up to expectations
depends on what expectations! LOLZ
no, but most of you will still buy it
I don't know, will it be more or less identical to MW2?
Well judging by the quality of BO the quality can only go down.
(unless your post was sarcastic, I don't even know anymore) They said that for CoD4 too, and they were sort of right. Which is why the last four CoD games have followed the exact same recipe.
the expectation are for it to be the same thing over AND OVER again.
By expectations, I hope you mean getting a lot of money cause thats all Activision cares about. And I'm gonna admit that i'll end up buying anyways just like all the others who hate CoD. But if MW3 isn't good and just like the rest of CoD titles then screw CoD forever and I'll just play Gears of War 3 or Battlefield 3. *EDIT* Actually theres tons more titles come this year and next year and CoD isn't up there.
So, you hate the CoD franchise yet you still buy the games? I'm confused. The last CoD game I bought was MW2 which I bought purely out of hype. I returned it in less three months. I knew Black Ops was going to the be exact same so I just rented it for the single player.
I started off at CoD 3 for Wii but it didn't have the online experince. Than I got MW2 on Xbox which was actually fun and then when I got Black Ops it just felt alike, actually even worst although it had zombies. So pretty much I hate CoD but I buy it because I know all my friends will buy it and I want to play with them and this would only be my 3rd online CoD game so its different compared to many others who bought CoD 4/WaW and the other titles.
You mean my already very low expectations? Yes. it will. Actually, it might even fall below that...
I must admit, i already didn't like most of the CoD games. Especially Modern Warfare. It was rubbish. But Black Ops was awesome, so now i'm kinda looking forward to the next one. It'll take me a lot to buy it though, as Black Ops cost me a small fortune
I dun no what with all the hate towards MW2 that game was a fun ride through single player. And mp is a blast when I feel like being a noob and praying and spraying...
single player? that was the sorriest excuse for a narrative. everything felt tick tacked.
not as good as COD4
they never have before lets see the next COD do something different for once....have like the French Rev, or napoleon campaign....WW1? WW2 (not that its different but its been a while)? American Rev? war of 1812? civil war....common there are tons of era's out there stop dude broing and having very inaccurate depictions and stop thinking its 1952 and we are at war with Russia they are our greatest allies right now and one of the few who can stand the US
Well the weapons before ww2 aren't great for a shooter, ww1 weapons were ok, but the military tactics for infantry were beyond stupid. Rdr had old west weapons but the lack of decent aiming/ a zoom feature was a major turn off to me.
No then you'll complain about the bugs, shitty multiplayer, short campaign and how its another rehash...then proceed to buy the next installment.
i need to see a new engine. improved physics and the sort.. something like DICE is doing with Battlefield 3.
@spektical Yeah but were talking about activision and treyarc here, i'll bet they will use the same engine till we are on the ps4 and xbox720. They make money out the ass, yet they can't ensure that they release a decent running multiplayer component on all platforms. No other fps i know has the same amount of problems, despite selling so many units as cod. Wanting a new engine and better physics from cod, only after it's sales start to nose dive, and activision has to scramble.
The only game i had some high expectations was MW2 and it kinda failed on that but still was/is a fun game to pick up and play but that´s about it. Black Ops in the other hand just felt more or less of the same about the previous titles but still alot people bought it. I really dont know what Black Ops had to do to be more appealing to the average consumer.Maybe marketing had something to do it probably. Now about the next CoD game I DO have some hope that will deliver something fresh because of Slegehammer games that i barely dont know nothing about.
There's certainly potential. If Sledgehammer upgrade the engine, and make it anything but noob/casual gamer friendly, I might give it a chance. Developers need to take chances and do something different, especially FPS devs. If the next CoD is crap, I expect people to take notice, look past the marketing and not give into what has become a grossly overrated franchise. I'm sick of people accepting and buying mediocrity on a regular basis.
NO MORE! PLEASE!
Dont like no buy. Many do like many will buy. simple cant deny that.
Honestly in my opinion, the Call of Duty games have been disappointing since the first Modern Warfare. Long gone are the days of 'fun' Call of Duty games, the original on PC along with United Offensive were some of the best gaming moments I've ever had. Unfortunately the 'Casuals' have took over, and they are now turning them all into games that anyone can pick up and play, which is the main problem. And the fact that they seem to be getting further and further away from the times of the 'Good' CoD games. I just hope Battlefield 3 this year can steal it's thunder, as the BF series is the way forward for the more 'Hardcore' gamers. Let the casual's have their fun.
if they mean bugs in the game then yes! yes it will!!
I expect the same. No expectations here. Don't want to buy, but ill end up buying it anyways ... only cause I have a ton of friends and co-workers that only play COD, and playing with them is good times.
Friends don't let friends play COD.
Ill buy it for the story after its in the 10-20 dollar bin at gamestop but damn after black ops I wanted to fkn break it. Never been so led down by a game.
