    Re: Call of Duty: WWII promotional material leaks online

    Good The WW2 COD games were easily the best in the series, and whilst I did really enjoy modern warfare..nothing quite beats the "ping" you get from an empty M1 Garand. I have not finsihed the latest one yet (still only about 50% through the story) which is unusual for me as I generally prefer the heavily scripted single player experience that COD gave you. I just really cannot be bothered.

    The recent games have tried to change this original formula - things like being able to choose your weapon loadout, flexibility to do missions in different orders, adding annoying special abilities to single player...all of those things have pretty much ruined what COD was always about - good simple gunplay and good scripted stories.

    I really hope they strip things back to basics for this new one and realise that all those extra bits of fluff they added are simply not needed. Or just remake COD 2 in a new engine with 4k textures, that would keep me and many other fans just as happy.

    Sounds like they're also trying to head off Dice at the pass with their inevitable revisiting of WW2. BF 1940 with BF 1941/1944 DLC seems probable.

    The Americans didn't enter WW2 until 1942, so I doubt they would set the game before that time...

    Sure they would. Then you can buy the AMERICAN ARMY DLC with loads of extra skins and guns.

    Honestly this game has raised an eyebrow, but little more.
    COD2 was easily the most fun I have ever had in any computer game ever. I racked up thousands of hours worth of time in it and have very fond memories.

    The issue with COD now, is there is no way they could go back to that. The brilliance of the game was that it was simple. There was no weapon add ons, no progression system, no perks, no "call in" bonus'.... it was just purely competitive and relatively slow paced game play thanks to the huge focus on bolt action rifles.

    Kids these days don't want that, they expect fast, they expect flashy, they expect e-peen rankings and rewards, they expect maximum customisation. I'm not saying all of these things are guaranteed to ruin the game, but when the developer spends huge amounts of time gearing something up around the "extras", its almost inevitable that the core game play suffers.
    BF1 has warmed to me a bit, I have managed to get a bit of enjoyment out of it but I still find myself stepping away from it from time to time, frustrated that it just doesn't feel competitive and as engaging in its pure game play as it should be. I find myself playing the game to achieve the "rewards" rather than just to get better at the game and rack up the big scores.

    This game will end up being a rinse and repeat, run and gun, fast paced spray fest with limited value to those of us who just want to enjoy the competition.

    Re: Call of Duty: WWII promotional material leaks online

    Love that the CoD2 fans are out in force today ... count me amongst them (along with '4, CoD2 counts as one of the best of the series in my book)

    Would like that they retain the good story lines from the earlier ones, and if they want to do a simplified "load out" setup, then count me in. It might be a good thing to play a level through with pistol and rifle, then replay with SMG, then with full on machine gun, etc. It's this kind of "what if" that kept me going on that game for so long. Heck I'd be playing it NOW if I hadn't - ahem - mislaid my copy. And it's why I'm still playing Just Cause 3! (despite finishing it on XBox and PC months ago)

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Hope they pull it off, COD 2 was great fun, sniping people from the top of the ship.

    You can still pick it up from steam, surprised to see that its still a whopping £14.99!

    If there is enough of us we should all try and get it installed and play some Carentan CTF/S&D

    A battlefield 1 style alternate WW2 maybe ?

    I would probably get this, the last CoD I bought for PC was World at War.

    I got MW2 for PS3 under peer pressure from people at work, but never really got into it. Always went back to the WW2 versions.

    I would only play story mode as well, not interested in online play, probably the fear of being a noob and getting shot up as soon as I spawned.

    In its prime, It was a lot like CS in that sense with online play.
