NextGEN Gamers looks at the complaints sweeping the web that going back to WWII for call of Duty 5 is out of touch with what gamers want.
to return to Treyarch either. So much for COD5 being a first day buy for me.
Ye Compared To Infinity Wards COD 4 Treyarch are going to have big shoes to fill like size 200 shoes !
For me it won't be a buy at all. Going back to the WW2 genre is like having a brand new Viper and then going back to the very first model. No one in their right mind would do that...so why do that with a great franchise?
call of duty 4 was my first and with the way things are looking soon to be my last call of duty game i will be paying for. untill infinity ward picks up the series again. it still amazes me that after the outcry they are still going on with the project, thinking or gamers dont know any better what we tell them is what they gonna listen to. well good luck to cod5 it shall not be getting no business from me
Whats the WII genre, I'm not familiar with that one.
I don't think he wants to go back to a COD where there's a Wii version. Like COD3
I really don't mind the WW2 "genre", that is unless it is done right. Games such as MOHAA, COD etc were absolutely fantastic and are still fun to this day. People get bored with WW2, but at the same time fighting in the middle east is starting to run it's course as well... We'll see what happens with COD5 ;)
Just wait for Killzone 2 and Resistance:FOM2 and k!ss COD5 goodbye!
At first it looked like it was WII as in Wii. Somebody needs to add another W in there.
I'll be skipping COD5. Killzone for me as far as shooters go.The whole WW2 theme killed it for me.
iw pulled a fast one on treyarch, they probably didn't tell treyarch what they were doing and treyarch found out too late. Treyarch probably spent months planning the concept art,storyline, features, where they wanted the series to go and when cod4 released outside of ww2 trearch was left with a decision restart and lose months of planning or go ahead and release the game ON TIME. I think that they made the right decision activision wouldnt have been really sympathetic to a delay. i think that cod3 did stink i am in no way a fanboy for treyarch. In fact i only played the multiplayer for cod3 and the hit detection was a mess the shotgun which was supposed to be a one hit kill close up didnt do anything my friends and i would joke that the shotgun was a poison pellet gun because you would get the drop on somebody fire they would still be alive and kill you then they would run one or two feet and then finally die.
COD5 is built on the COD4 engine.
Finally played through COD3 last night, wasn't terribly impressed. I saw where they really tried to stay faithfully engaged with the cinematics, music and pacing, but too many small things left me kinda blah through most of the game (especially the end). Most frustrating was the 'ok, i'm ready' hit detection, at times taking 2-3 head shots to take someone down. It was alright, but I felt like longing for more COD2 with running and nade throwback. Mm, will be watching this one with one eye open.
But a franchise like Call of Duty only deserves to be given to the best. Treyarch isn't the best.
the WWII setting has been reborn into so many games that if i ever see one again i think i'm gonna puke..they should have just continued with the modern warfare and not the same old and bland bull$#!* again..
Why i dont want WW2 anymore ? Call of duty 1 ..2 ..3 ... medal of honor .. day of defeat , brother in arms etc etc ... At some point enough is enough . Every genre repeat itself , but WW2 solo and team fps are the worst offenders . They dont even bother looking differents .. use the same textures , same dull lightning , same sounds for steps on wooden floor or metallic sounds . And just because countries were at war doesnt mean the sun stopped shining and became some grainy , yellow or grain dull color filter you know ? When the only differences in such games becomes weither or not they include vehicules , enough is enough . It will also happens eventually to middle east based game , but they still got soom breathing room .
I've been playing WW2 games for as long as I can remember. How about nothing more than it's so over saturated, like xbox live is with arcade games, that it don't matter no more? Sounds good to me, yeah? I played 1 great war game in my life and that was Nam shell-shock. That game was gritty, visceral and had a lot of heart. It was the best war game ever made. the filter they used for the look was so dead on it made you feel like you were there. the even better part, it was in Nam and not WW2. it reminded me a lot like Hamburger hill, actually. To the below: Sure you don't. Cared so much you didn't even post in this thread under me. You're a ghost among men, now get outta here ya damn dork.
and u lose my dollars. Im Sick of WW anything, been there, shot that, seen it on Hitler channel er "History Channel'.. if i want to relive a old war movie ill watch it.
I'm just tired of the Call of Duty series in general. I couldn't really play this one as much, because it's the same game with modern theme. There are subtle differences, but mostly multiplayer. I don't want another COD, I won't get on this bandwagon with everyone else, there will be plenty of other games for me to play: LBP, Fable 2, WKC, Res2, K2, FFXIII, FFXIII Versus, Infinite Undiscovery, Star Ocean... the list goes on like that folks. Glad I own both next gen systems so I don't have to get cornered playing a game that's hyped up that I don't really care for.
ILL PASS ON THIS ONE JUST LIKE I PASS ON COD1,COD2,COD3
I might give it a try, theres not that many WW2 games taking place in the pacific war (maybe because Sony and Nintendo might get offended). Anyway the hole flamethrower thing looks cool and im welling to give Treyarch another chance.
No more WWII, jeez! we sill have Brothers in Arms comming out.
I don't care if I use a Tommy Gun, G36 or a Plasma Rifle. I'm more upset that Treyarch is doing COD5 rather than it being set in WW2.
Agreed. WW 2 games are proven to be more balanced, that is until Treyarch totally destroyed the CoD formula by going arcade thus destroying CoD as a WW2 franchise. If they bring CoD back to it's roots then it should be fine...unfortunately CoD 5 will take place in the Pacific which is pretty much a death sentence. All Pacific theater WW2 FPS sucks.
we really need another major/earth changing type war so we gamers can have some new material/shooting grounds. so what we are all saying is that... "WAR HAS CHANGED"
Why? Because the genre's been beaten to death...Multiple Call of Duty and Medal of Honor games, not to mention a handful of lesser titles (Hour of Victory). CoD4 was a refreshing departure from the WWII genre, and although modern-style FPS games are a dime a dozen, CoD4 was different enough (esp. the online mode) to stand out. CoD5 better be something special.
Enough is Enough. WWII was been done to death weather it's in American History class at school or playin Brothers in arms or Call of duty 1,2, and 3 at home everybody get's the point. Either make something up or base it off the war in Afghanistan (which I don't agree on either) But anything but WWII PLEASE!!!!
My console will not see Call of Duty 5 ... ;] If i want to play COD in WW II then i can buy COD3 any time.. Its modern days right now, and i think the games should be made in modern times.. not futuristic crap with lasers and crap like that.. They will realize that COD5 in WWII was not the right move when they see the sales of COD5. Maybe this will make them change their minds next time... Why cant great developers like Infinity Ward and Crytek team up and make the best FPS ever ??
not only it returns to ww2 but also trayarch devoloped it,two problems at once I hate when most people just say"why, ww2 again" and totally forget about the minds(game studio) that creat it see that's not the only problem it's trayarch who make this one if INFINTY WARD ARE MAKING COD5,NO PROBLEM I'LL BUY IT
get over it i say,Infinity Ward will be back with a modern COD and you won't have to cry about either situation when that happens.
It's guys like you that need to get over themselves ... No gamers with an ounce of logic would accept going from a good team to a mediocre one for the sake of having a game from the serie each year . Just imagine if blizzard decided they should have a starcraft or a warcraft rolling every year , while the all star team make their own .. it would suck
im beginning to care less where the setting takes place. i have been playing ww2 games for a long time also. it will be good to see a real* nex gen wwII game. just make it good and there should be no problems. activistion is notorious for WW2, they made 1 modernwarfare game and thats not going to change anything. sure it was good, but if they feel they could go bak and make an awesome ww2 game then i respect that. just make it good like cod4. did you see thoes screen shots with the swords? that sh*t looks crazy yo. they know what there doing. and i respect them for being one of the few skilled devs out there that knows how to work the ps3 dev kit. ; )
I love the WW II francise. But this stems from the fact that I study military History and really have found WW II to be unique for many reasons. I'll see how this game goes out. I didn't really like COD3 that much. But if they do a good job with COD5 I'll play it. I've nothing against the WW II gnere. I wonder does the author of this article with to play the bad guy? COD4 did infact have that good vs. evil in there, just not as blatant as previous titles.
Treyarch gets so much unjustified hate just because COD4 happens to be good. It's not like COD4 developers were that great to begin with, they simply hit the jackpot with COD4.
You're entitled to an opinion, but saying infinity ward just got lucky and "hit the jackpot" with cod4 seems pretty stupid to me. I've played countless hours of fps over the years on consoles and pc from way back to the first doom. COD4 is one of the best fps games i've ever played, and thats saying a lot. Everything about it, from the maps to the balanced weapons to the amazing attention to detail just screams high quality work. You don't end up a product that good from luck. I'm not hating on treyarch, but it just seems idiotic to hand the series back to them after what iw managed to do.
Thats a moronic statement. They might have gotten lucky and hit the jackpot with the first CoD 1 if streaks like CoD 2 and CoD 4 combined thats a track record.
Plot, Storyline and single player campaign. Modern Warfare...hmm not so much but the Multi-player is better because of the Weapons. Expect a better campaign for COD5.
I am a huge WW2 history guy, so I am happy to see it come back personally. I loved COD4 though so I am torn.
I love COD4. I can't imagine going back to WWII for yet another run through the trenches with a tommy gun. Blech. Plus, Treyarch is no IW. Speaking of which, can we please please please get some more COD4 maps?
Wow did that article suck. It was highly incorrect and the premise was more like CoD3 vs. CoD4 compared to CoD5 vs CoD4. The writer also assumes throughout the entire article... No new perks? Bad maps? No air support? I wonder how he knows these things... oh, thats right... there HASN'T been any official statement on these things. "Lexx" should get his facts straight. Also, CoD3 was in production for 9-11 months. Not 2 years like CoD4 and CoD5.
Me myself, I've had more than enough WW II gaming but if it's done totally different then the same ole same ole then just maybe it could be fun, but since it is WW II it just goes to show that Treyarch isn't listening to anyone but themselves, I mean they must be afraid to make a modern day game, I can see COD 7,9,11 will all be WW II games, lol:) Lets hope not.
history shows that infinty ward cod games are the real cod games,just see while trayarch cod games are average to good(they don't touch IW's) trayarch: cod:finest hour cod2:big red one and cod3 infinty ward:cod1 cod2 cod4 even before they split from ea and join activision and form infinty ward, they created the classic medal of honor:allied assult(pc only) conclusion:infinty ward games are the real war games(with all respect to trayarch).
WE WANT MODERN WARFARE!
Not keen on the return to WWII. I think I would also rather have waited longer for Infinity Ward to make COD5. Bring on more Modern Warfare.
Every time I play one of those WW2 shooters I feel like I played the exact same area before. Maybe I'm doing something different in each game but its the same area I played through in other games.
