Sledgehammer: Infinity Ward “the best FPS developer out there”

“We’re standing on the shoulders of greatness on Modern Warfare 2″ says Sledgehammer Games’ Michael Condrey on trying to build an even better Call of Duty, but working with Infinity Ward has enabled the two development teams to constantly push each other towards “excellence”.

3 years ago I would have put them up at top 3 as far as fps devs go. Valve #1 Bungie #2. 3 years ago DICE were whoring themselves to the console so they weren't even top 10.

The problem is the core of Infinity Ward stuck together but go under Respawn. So I see this comment as "Respawn Ent. the best fps dev out there"

Id Software and Valve > Infinity Ward

Heartnet2516d ago

Nice to know a good developer is behind the game :)

And lets be honest not many developers have had as much experience developing First Person Shooters as infinity ward have :) even if a bunch of em left.

There Certainly up there ^^ much better than Valve for Fps id say.... alot better lol Valve are good with stories and shiz but when it comes down to the core mechanics of a shooter there not up there

jriquelme_paraguay2517d ago

and who are Sledgehammer to say this with autorithy?

Crazyglues2517d ago (Edited 2517d ago )

yeah exactly what I was thinking, remind me again what FPS game Sledgehammer made that was loved by millions.... ???

-Because I don't remember anyone saying Sledgehammer is an Awesome developer..So to claim your the best FPS developer is like a little crazy


Heartnet2516d ago

Arent new developers allowed to voice there opinion anymore ? :S

If they are way cant we get a cod in high def?
Wow look at all the cod sheep disagreeing in here. Noobs.

theonlylolking2517d ago

It is because the xbox 360. You should see the article that M$ forces devs to do stuff and make the PS3 on par with the 360. So if it aint in HD then it is because of the 360.

Dice is not the best FPS dev out there. Their online FPS are almost exactly the same. MOH, battlefield, Battlefield bad company, etc... Those games all are about the exact same online.

BF3 is just BF2 with pretty graphics.

OdinFallen2517d ago

@theonlylolking You sir, fail at life and everything in it. Oh yes, MS forces devs to do things /s. If you want to look at a company that actually has great influence in how a dev handles a project, go look at Walmart.

@cyborg I agree that the CoD fans will be CoD fans and have been sorely disappointed in the graphic quality of the games since 4.

Boody-Bandit2517d ago (Edited 2517d ago )

What about Valve, id, DICE, Bungie, Crytek or Epic (Unreal Tournament not Gears <(TPS)?
Infinity Ward, seriously?
Ah no.

Heartnet2516d ago

yeh.. they have a bunch of experience plus they have the most popular FPS out there currently so yeh... They must be doing sumin right.. even if you dont like call of duty..

I wudnt say Valve, Crytek or Epic.. No they do other things right but not FPS im fraid *sad face*

Ace_Man_62517d ago (Edited 2517d ago )

DICE?! DICE?! Oh give me a break, how about VALVe or Irrational Games or id Software or even CRYTEK UK (a.k.a. Free Radical)? idiot

egidem2517d ago (Edited 2517d ago )

Well, they are working alongside Infinity Ward, so why would anyone expect them to talk trash about them???

They are good at what they do (Call of Duty Modern Warfare series) but calling them the best because their game sells a lot is just silly.

Heartnet2516d ago

Its not cuz there game sells alot.. if they are working with them and think there a great developer taht the team has worked with or worked for then Why not say it?

but yeh they wudnt talk trash about Infinity Ward ^^ but then again they didnt have to say anything at all tbh

Buho2517d ago

COD4 sh*ts on DICE and their BF games. Say what you want about IW, but they made one of the best FPS games ever.

JeffGUNZ2517d ago

I agree, COD4 was one of the best games I have ever played.

Chocoboh2517d ago (Edited 2517d ago )

You're kidding right?... BF2 blows every CoD game out of the water. I have so many hours and dogtags then every CoD game I have played just from BF2

edit: I mean yeah, the mods, the dog fights, the infantry battles over flag captures were more intense then Call of Duties "run and gun spin and noscope"

ZombieNinjaPanda2517d ago

Just to clarrify Chocoboh, he's talking about Battlefield 2, not bad company 2, before anyone starts talking shit saying Bad Company sucked (it was a good game).

Either way, Call of Duty 4 was the only good modern game that Infinity Ward created. Last gen was good, the rest this gen sucked wang.

"Infinity Ward “the best FPS developer out there"

oh god I hope you're joking... DICE say HI

KingDustero2517d ago

Lol these devs are so high of themselves. They're average at best, but they think they're better than everyone else. The games they make are some of the lowest quality wise in the industry.

I'm NEVER going to support another CoD title in my life. All these sequels are just cheap rehashes. The devs are just way too full of themselves as well.

ND could very easily make an FPS that destroys CoD in quality.

Parasyte2517d ago (Edited 2517d ago )

The title is misleading the actual quote is "IW are ARGUABLY the best FPS developer".

Personally, I don't think they are. That honor would have to go to DICE, Guerilla Games, Insomniac, id, or Bungie.

PCE2517d ago (Edited 2517d ago )

@DoomeDx: ND made an FPS game? Please show me it, I want to play it sometime!


ND made no FPS game. Get your facts straight. They made 3 third person shooters, some platform games, some old fighting game, some adventure game, some RPGs, etc. But no FPS game.

@ DoomeDx
