Videogameszone had the chance to take a first look on Modern Warfare 3. They write: "Great action, but no innovations".
when was the last time a FPS was innovative... its all been done to death there isn't much you can innovate that hasn't been done already
not completely true! on some platforms devs know they must try harder! & on top of that it's 64 players! - http://www.youtube.com/watc... - http://www.youtube.com/watc... - http://www.youtube.com/watc... some things I have never seen before! But essentially fps's are the same devs have to add little features to evolve it..
Oh god Red Orchestra is gonna be AWESOME!
Yeah, too many people complain about not enough "innovation" but what exactly does that mean? Obviously something "new" that works well is always a plus. But you can make a SOLID-AAA game without re-inventing the wheel.
@ EYEamNUMBER1 I was just about to ask the same thing. Everyone's jumped on the Battlefield 3 bandwagon but from the 12 minute trailer they've shown, it's the same tired FPS formula; man that heavy gun, take out that sniper, man that turret. Same generic set pieces in every FPS today.
It's the MP for Battlefield, the SP is really just a nice addition. 1942,Vietnam,BF2 and 2142 had no SP and I was perfectly fine with that. Who knows how many PC players will even realize it's there.
THIS GEN: Condemned - Heavy Melee in a FPS Bioshock - Exploration/Survival Horror Portal - Puzzle Shooter, Physics Borderlands - FPSRPG, Online MP Integration System Killzone 2 - Cover, Warzone MP Mode, Mirror's Edge - Free Running in FPS Fallout 3 - Open World RPG Far Cry 2 - Fully open world FPS BRINK - Team OBJs, Individual OBJ Based Shooter These were definitely some titles that were a big innovation to the genre. Of course, with these, being said, I guess they are running out of fresh ideas. All though I have to say I AM ALIVE was looking kind of awesome, but we will see if it comes out.
No its not just fps thats not being NOT innovated. Its call of duty. You would think that after so many iterations, they would at the very least add something new. But its the same thing. Now its just for the profit. The game no longer matters to activision. Just the sales they get from it
If you created the most successful shooter ever & put out the same game every year & people bought it more than the last time 3/4 years in a row would you be motivated add something new? I hope Dice kicks ass!
Exactly, why would IW or Activision want to waste their time thinking of innovative ideas. And I guess they're also worried that if they change it so drastically they could risk loosing the thing that makes CoD games so addictive.
i hate all the innovation complaints. to me, that just means a game is so well made that the only negative thing people can say is that it's not innovative. where in the gaming community did innovative = great?? cod has developed a tried and true formula, why risk that on innovation when they can just tweak what is already great?? there is a growing cod hatred building...but not because its a bad game, but because its top dog.
no its honestly cuz its pretty bad, don't get confused. It has some of the worst sp ai which for me ruins the game, your guy floats around like hes in a hover car, online is filled with bugs and lag. There are thousands of videos of just how crappy COD can be online with direct hits not registering, quick scoping, guys out running bullets to the side because of lag, knife issues, and some of the worst spawning i have ever seen. The thing is, is that its just way to easy and made so your mother can pick it up and get 10 kills, thats why it sells. Once you figure out the spawning and what guns to use u go 30 and 1 like every time and its just not fun. Plus the game has just been getting buggier every time and the way over priced map packs. It has nothing to do with it being so well made.
maybe i just have a different definition of bad than some gamers. bugs and glitches are never going to go away, so im realistic. bad is this stuff - unplayable lag, no party system, very few maps, very few game modes, horrible hit detection...the list can go on and on. these are things that other fps, which don't sell well, have that cod does not (for the most part). i'm not saying its perfect, but its better than any other alternative. does that make it good or great?? maybe not. but please people lets be honest - the cod series is some of the best online multiplayer on consoles that a fps fan can find. i dare anyone here to name a game that's far superior...i don't think you can. all the hate is from all the success.
yes it is good but the truth is mw1 was the best out of all of them. the gameplay isn't even close to the best fpss out there because everything is unbalanced and glitches. The hate isn't because of the success, its the fact that their success is causing them to not care and produce worse games than the one before it. COD has the most user friendly menus and options but not the best gameplay.
It isn't as much pure innovation as it is just changing up a few things within the singleplayer. Make no mistake even COD fans will eventually get tired of the franchise, they need to find a way to keep COD from getting repetitive.
They need a new engine more develop time and a freaking BETA to help rid the game of bugs and glitches. Idk but what do you guys think is this real or fake??
its COD, they dont have to even try and it will sell millions for the name alone, even if a COD sux everyone still plays it, its so bad
honestly i like action but action is worthless without story. the story is the WW3 not much people have done it. and also this beats going to russia or middle east in every FPS. besides Battlefield3 (does that take place in the middle east?)
always someone promoting Red Orchestra on every FPS thread lol. innovation in this field has to be small (i'm talking FPSs only) players are used to a certain way to play, and don't expect completely different experiences when going from game to game. (Like in a RPG, Dragon Age, to a FF game is completely different)
I get what you're saying, but why shouldn't we expect different experiences? There are hundreds of ways to make an FPS innovative but developers this gen won't use them because they're afraid the game won't sell. So instead they all follow the leader (CoD) in order to try make the most sales.
They'll leave innovation to the better development teams. I wish it all died after Call of Duty 4. There is no god.
I really question how this game will turn out...Black Ops had high expectations too and was a let-down. How many more COD games do people need at this point if the gameplay remains the same?
