    Re: Call of Duty 5 confirmed for Wii and DS

    Good news in that the Wii gets some much deserved big franchise action, BUT why oh why have they decided to go back to the WWII setting??? As much as i liked the old cod games, this has taken a step into another direction scenario wise, and I cant see the logic of them going back

    Disclaimer: Its late and maybe i didnt read the article properly. But I swear they said it... Read it and back me up!!

    Re: Call of Duty 5 confirmed for Wii and DS

    No, that would be a bit too extreme, but i think that the potential to create a better cinematic gaming experience (which lets face it is what the cod series is about) is greater if they kept it present day. The technology, vehicles and weaponary availiable to point the picture are a bit broader.

    To flip your question on its head, who would actually like to storm another beach? Or blow up some more flak guns? I know I'm being general - and i did think that Moh Airborne was decent, so I acknowledge that the WWII genre isnt dead, but just seems a bit odd. Cod4 has been such a roaring sucess that i thought that they would at least produce one more like that.

    Oh well - it'll still be great whatever really. Gotta love this series havent you! Feel like getting the original and cod2 out of the cupboard now...

    i agree, im not knocking the WW style games as they were indeed fun but COD4 for me was a massive leap forward in modern FPS playability, i still cant get enough of it.
    would be good to see them make another title in this kind of time but with more branching scenarios like in COD4 with the sniper mission ect, what about a stealth infiltration, helicopter sniping support (im just spitballing with these ideas) i just loved the latest installment and would like to see more from this era before going back to WW themes

    Well it's being developed by Treyarch so you can pretty much predict already that it's going to terrible.

    Re: Call of Duty 5 confirmed for Wii and DS

    WWII FPS's have had their day. Infact they've had their day and they've had it several times over. I'm bored with them and refuse to buy any more games that have a Thompson as it's main weapon and the objectives consist of blowing up flak cannons, planting bombs on subs and storming beaches.

    WWII games were great, but they're just getting dull and painfull repetitive.

    I loved CoD4, I played CoD1 and enjoyed it, but was getting fed up with WWII shooters then. Didn't play CoD 2 or 3, and won't be playing CoD5 if it's yet more of the same. CoD4 stood out from the crowd, much like Crysis did and they both deserved my money.

    I can't wait for Operation Flashpoint 2... just, thought I'd lay that out there.
