OXM UK: "Bodycount isn't a perfect shooter by any yardstick, but it's better than sodding Transformers blooming Dark of the kerfuffing Moon."
My problem is it isn't Black 2. At the time Black 2 was a visual stunner with realistic gun play. They never took it up a notch which is another reason. The zoom in aim may be like Black but sequel (even spiritual sequel) needs to keep up with what is basic stuff like sights. It is releasing Black now. Black was good but if it was released now it would get the same stick. It doesn't have to be battlefield 3 but it still needs to be good and this game isn't. The actual gameplay is pretty bad as well. It needs to keep up to date while offering something new. This was taken a major step back. edit I forgot to mention a big part was destruction like Black's being gun play. The destruction wasn't that good
I think the only thing that's flat-out wrong with it is the cover system. Other than that, it's a fun, silly shooter.
i think you should forget about that score it got and enjoy what you paid for/ rented/ borrowed. making something like this is pointless, not like it is going to make reviewers re look their reviews for a better score. So then what's the point?
it deserves 54
"Bodycount isn't a perfect shooter by any yardstick, but it's better than sodding Transformers blooming Dark of the kerfuffing Moon" Not really no . It perfectly deserves its trashy scores . It's not pretty , it doesnt have a good gameplay , and can't even perform the most basic ia tasks (like not having orons throwing nades at themselves near explosive barrel , because you aint moving) . It's too easy to pretend people dislike the game because it's not from the Battlefield/cod mold . Plenty of us still like fast and nervous fps like Quake ... and this even even near the quality of Quake 1 (in 2011!!) The article mention "The Club" , a meh but indeed still fun arcade shooter from Sega and bizarre Creations . But Bodcount isnt even half as good as the club Stuff like Brink and Bulletstorm , arent military shooters and still have their public , even if met with mixed feelings
I wholeheartedly agree. Game was nor good. At all. Unfortunately. Even Black, which released last gen about 6 years ago, is arguably better. So disappointed ... :(
With a market saturated with fps games, your shooter most be above average to get some attention, and honestly bodycount screams GENERIC imo.
I think i have to agree with him. Reading the article and viewing the video this game don't look that bad. This to me will be a budget pickup in 3 or 4 month.
I just wanna know is there a option to make controls normal, not that weird L1 half press stuff. If i can put controls like we all want, then i'll get it.
53.01 - Done. Quit your jibberjaber, worthless article!
game sucked as a whole. the worst FPS and maybe worst game i ever played
Game rocks! Its fun, It's fast and shit blows up real nice. I BARELY ducked for cover and the skill system was OK but I didn't really care cause I was blowing things up hella-good! What needed to happen was true co-op play in the campaign, not horde comp-stomping, that's been done to death. And personally I could give a rat's ass if it was supposed to be Black 2 or not. I hated Black. It was dumb. Then again you could say that about ALL FPS. Its the same shit over and over, wash, rinse and repeat. At least Bodycount makes it fun like Bulletstorm. So reviews are pathetic. If you bought it and played it then you know that it's a lot of fun. If you played the demo and you didn't like it. At least you tried the demo and you found out it wasn't your cup of tea. But please, don't entertain the idea that one shooter is better than another. Its all the same crap. You bob your virtual head and murder digital fools. WHAT A UNIQUE CONCEPT! Only been going on since Wolfenstein....when was that, oh yeah May, 1992.
