Why I Traded Call of Duty: World at War

"Ok, ok. Just before any of you decide to chop me up for the title, shut the fuck up and listen to what I have to say for one second. It's only fair that I get to defend my reasoning. Sit back, get yourself a cup of coffee and some Advil, and be prepared to either punch your monitor in anger, or cheer with acknowledgment.

First off, let's get something out of the way before I'm pummeled with radiant curses and insults towards my mother's sexual sanctity. Those of us who convolute our time in online gaming should just acknowledge that Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is the king as far as multiplayer goes. Forget Halo, Resistance, Gears of War and whatever else you think is the best multiplayer game; numbers show that CoD4 is dominating the online genre on consoles (except on the Wii, of course). So get off your high horse and join the revolution."

Basically I see World At War as the job Infinity Ward would have done if they had placed their gane in WWII instead of going modern. While I think IF would have been even better than Treyarch did with the game, they did incldue a pretty cool zombie mode which I really enjoy so hats off to that at very least.

I was VERY skeptical at first of the whole return to WWII thing but I am having a blast with the multi. Once you reach the appropriate levels and get the gun add-ons, its a blast.

Nothing beats COD-4,nothing. Counter Strike on the PC might come close but if anything Killzone-2 looks close to dethrone it but we'll see how that turns out.

You have not embraced CS then if you think CoD4 is better. A 1998 game that's still alive and kicking, says alot already. Back that up with endless mods and 64 player support and well......CoD what? Someone can make a CoD4 mod for CS and that would probably still be better than CoD4. Graphics do not make a game, if you're thinking that's what KZ2 will do. Sure they help alot, but ultimately the gameplay will decide whether a game is great or not.

Counter strike is actually a sloppy game based off a mediocre engine. The way the community plays it and mods it is what makes it amazing. But don't call it the best game ever when the game itself is clearly outdated.

And I've never seen a CS game come anywhere near 64 players. Don't invent BS.

iiprotocolii3702d ago

Although I will say that CS was a good game, it's pretty much dated. Though I'm not going to slam it, I think that there are much better online titles that offer better online play. I gotta give it to them, though. They've been around for ages and still manage to remain up top even with all these new titles being released. Sure as hell the game is outdated, but it holds a freakin' strong support from PC gamers. You got it totally right, matchgrade.

Bolts3701d ago (Edited 3701d ago )

If you haven't seen a 64 player CS game then you don't know WTF you're talking about or you haven't played CS in a decade or so. There are plenty of 64 players CS servers out there, just look them up on Steam. There are even 100 players CS servers too believe it or not, but most of those are only up during LAN events.

Nevermind dude, these are the same people that think resistance 2 "invented" 60 player mp.

@ Matchgrade

Have you ever playd CS? I haven't played it much since 2004/2005 when it first came, but even then, there were lag free 64 player online matches that graphically, looks better then than resistance 2 looks now.

I've played COD:WAW multiplayer for a good chunk of my time and i can say that it is no COD4. It does really just seem like a filler game. The zombie mode is something i really did like, but since my internet connection isn't the best ever i often can't find a room to join and even when i try to host one no one joins my room. Personally i'm thinking that in a couple of months i'll trade COD:WAW in, gotta make room for Killzone 2

I played the demo...meh. This has to be the first article I have seen with a writer so afraid of back-lash for his comments.

More like holding off the rants until the point gets across. I actually encourage any talk. People's feedback and opinions are what's relevant to an article.

caladbolg7773702d ago

As is the trend nowadays.
