A great series spoiled by lack of passion
Lmfao at the pix agree with the article.
Lack of passion is probably the best way to describe the development process behind recent CoD games. They make just enough to seal the deal and to get along with industry journalists, then little more. It's still based on the solid CoD4 formula though, so it's still very playable.
But the question is, after seeing this done 5 times in a row within 5 years already, is it still very playable? Sure it works, but do we really want to support this kind of game development that lacks innovation and improvements but still manages to destroy the competition when it comes to sales year after year?
I know I don't, but I'm not going to go around shouting "COD sucks" either. It is still quality entertainment as far as I'm concerned, but I'm way too fed up with it to actually buy it myself.
Good luck convincing 9 million+ people that CoD has a crappy development process. Copy and paste and change a few things here and there and it will sell millions even though it's the same 2007 formula. S.S.D.D. They don't really care how the industry works. They just want their cod fix and to play with their friends so if all their friends are buying mw3 then they'll be buying it too.
That formula won't work forever. People said the same thing with Guitar Hero too when I asked why on earth are they buying the same game AGAIN?
I downloaded it and couldn't even finish the campaign. I don't see the reason of buying it for the mp considering you have the last 3 cods to choose from for the same mp.
What (non COD fans ) people forget is COD delivers what the fans want. The fans do not care about having amazing graphics with a complete gameplay redesign. Why have a massive overhaul in gameplay and graphics when the core fans are fine with it.
I'm a huge CoD fan...been a CoD player since CoD 2, and I would love new graphics, a new hud style, a change in the menu look, new animations...to make it short, I would like to see a new game, with the same fluid arcady movement. You telling me a new engine would make that impossible? Activision is just too cheap, and don't care about the consumers.
"The fans do not care about having amazing graphics" Uncharted 3 looks better than Uncharted 2 or 1. Gear of Wars 3 looks better than Gears of War 2 or 1. So does Resistance 3 compared to 2 or 1. They are all sequels and yet they look better and better with each iterations. Their fans still loved them even with the hated "better" graphics. So, why can't CoD at least try to do the same?
What CoD fanboys forget is that most of the people complaining about the series were, at one time, CoD fans. When I think about how little the franchise has changed since I started playing, and given that they've had YEARS to do so and MILLIONS of dollars in profits to do it with, I just get pissed off.
i'm a cod fan and my problem is that they just put no effort in to it. its a bunch of small maps overly congested with terrible spawns. I dont know if the vast openness and team work of bf3 ruined mw for me or what, but i am currently hating mw3
your justification for this rehashed map pack is really really astounding. to be fair, your attempt at reasoning for activision's lousy so-called "new" game makes you sound like the Lloyd Christmas of gaming. congratulations.. :D
Why did you put it's metacritic score in brackets? /s
what does everyone expect? the original people behind Call of Duty are now gone
Since they're still using graphics from MW1, calling the new one MW2.5 seems kind. Isn't this really MW1.75?
The namesake is what is carrying the franchise. Those who originally had planned out the series certainly aren't working on it now...Its been tossed around developers like a chew toy. It should have stayed with 1 developer....thats why we are where we are today. These people think they can do no wrong by releasing a game with the same engine times over and the sales agree with that...The fans may not yet they contradict themselves by buying it...It may not change by next year either.
