The campaign is an awful lot of noise. Terrifically designed noise with some of the best audio I've ever head in a game but the pacing is just constant action and it can get a bit boring.


That’s disappointing. I’ve just started the remastered first one and the pacing is great. Plenty of moonlit creeping to be done before the action starts.

Have you finished it? Or is this just ‘so far’ from what you’ve played?

I've played six or seven missions and that's what it seems like so far.

 

Even the two Spec Ops missions I've played involved slaughtering an entire country's army and then their allies join. That mode has been massively disappointing so far, hoping for some gold later on because it was the thing I was most looking forward to and so far it lacks the level of creativity found in the original Spec Ops.

spent 3 hours straight on the MP, no jump shot wankers, no merry go round nonsense just a visceral rush of gaming coke and not since mw2 has this series been so good.

 

not played half the maps but the ones I have are so well designed, that bridge one is just amazing, the sightlines are so well thought out, went 21 for 6 sniping, cant wait for for spec ops and ground war

MW2 was the best one for me. Can’t remember if that was non stop shooty or not. Seem to remember it wasn’t.

 

Always found the Rainbow Six and GRAW games to be a great counter foil to COD but not been drawn to either for years. A general decline in all jingoistic FPS games over the years.

Bit early for that, no? Honeymoon or genuinely great? On the fence about this but definitely could be swayed.

wow,

 

that Piccadilly mission is going to cause a shit storm in the media.

I can't see what's so controversial that it'll cause a fuss. It's not exactly No Russian as you're playing as the good guys and the sight of terrorists attacking a major city isn't exactly new. We (unfortunately) had London Has Fallen a few years ago where the entirety of the Met were all secret terrorists so I doubt this will register.

 

It's been the highlight of the game so far for me.

The only published reviews so far are from sites who attended the game's "review event", and they're only luke-warm to fairly positive so far. Nothing that's screaming at me to buy the game. Campaign seems decent but there are question marks over the MP modes (no FFA yet!) map design (either great or terrible, though it seems a bit early to be calling that) and TTK. Spec Ops seems dire.

 

Probably best to sit it out for a couple of weeks for the honeymoon period to wear off, but of course by that time every fucker will know the maps intimately and be all levelled up. Ungggh.

Did you play the Beta?

For me that was enough to make it the first CoD I have pre-ordered in bloody years.

There’s always a honeymoon period. Advanced Warfare was raved about for a week and shat on ever since. No matter how good COD is, a significant part of the fan base (not to mention Activision) will always seek to ruin it.

 

One of the big probles with CoD is that they never, ever get the balancing right. They're always to-ing and fro-ing. Blops IIII was incredible for like a month before they fucked it and also added in the microtransaction fuckery.

Dipped a toe in, but not enough to decide if I liked it. Looked promising though. I want to buy it but don't want to get burned, again.

I was super skeptical but by the end of the weekend I was entirely on board. It's such a difference from recent CoDs, even WWII. The problem I have is I don't trust Activision to fuck it up despite all their noise about 'only cosmetics'. However it has to be said if anyone's got the foresight to see where all this lootbox regulation talk it'll be a monstrous company like Activision, so who knows.

nah no knee jerk, really really solid and they've got rid of the horrible stuff, quick scoping, jump shooting, etc its gone back to what made the early games classics.

no doubt, but the daily mail brigade will be all over it.
