What makes Call of Duty: Vanguard's issues worse is that it essentially feels like a 1:1 reskin of Modern Warfare 2019 with a WW2 aesthetic.
Couldn’t agree more. Played the beta and it was garbage. Maps are awful, guns sound like crap, graphics are mediocre, and a tiring WW2 setting that no one asked for. Thank goodness I was able to get a refund from Sony. I’ll be playing Halo Infinite this holiday in its place! BF2042 also looks great but it’s not really my thing.
WW2 isn't tiring if done right. DiCE even made WW1 awesome. Think about that. Sadly, the two big juggernauts (BF and CoD), both failed to come up with a compelling, fun "modern" WW2 shooter. But to compare, I'd even say BF:V, in its current state has more soul than this Vanguard crap.
Unfortunately at launch BF:V avoided the major WWII battles we all want to see in a game like that, apparently on the grounds that they've been done too many times. Fortunately they added some good Pacific Maps in the DLC, but a lot of people had already checked out by then.
Hell Let Loose was a more realistic WW2 done right. Man was i having fun with the game especially with teammates giving out orders. Felt like real war.
Halo Infinite making me wish I got an XBX, I love multiplayer shooters but holy crap, there hasn't been a good one for AGES!
Call of Duty has long lost its way. Pitiful and sad.
It had brief respite with MW 2019, which pulled me back in for the first time since BO1, but not even 2 games later and they've already burned that good will with 2 soulless cash grabs. I only hope MW2 in 2022 can somewhat bring it back round like it's predecessors did, but I'm not holding my breath.
I'll buy it strictly for the campaign only like I have for past COD games.
never bought cod for campaign lol, MP only, i will however be giving this shitshow a miss this yr
Shows you’re age. Cods campaigns from the very beginning have been pretty entertaining. Used to be people bought expansion packs for the campaign, multiplayer was just an extra
I looked dull by the gameplay i saw. Which one of the companies made this one?
Sledgehammer Games. They have been slowly deteriorating with every new cod.
"Soulless" is a damning word for a videogame in my opinion. It says so much.
Based on both the alpha and beta, it's a harsh but accurate analysis. They basically took the bones of MW 2019, made them worse and slapped WW2 textures on it. Me and my buddies deletes the beta after 3 rounds.
Reskin of 2019, absurd. It was very enjoyable just needs to take more risks and offer new modes.
Isn't that every COD though?
Sledgehammer Games are slowly deteriorating with every new cod they produce. It's almost as if they're doing it deliberately. Must suck making the same garbage every two years. That's insanity.
YeAh I think it is hard to keep the creative juices flowing when they are constantly working on the the same type of game over the years
No matter who bad the reviews are for the beta . The new CALL OF DUTY will be one of the biggest selling games of the year . Every year millions of players drop off but millions of new players jump on cod train
Yep. Are we surprised?
Yeah it is I tried to like It but I'm going to pass
game is trash at this point
At what point was it considered good? Lol
But am sure the better version is on ps5 must get at least a 9.1 on ps5 and 6 on all the others
COD went to hell, after Black Ops 2.
Oh well, it's been at least a few years or more since I last enjoyed a COD game, was considering this one.
