I have been playing Call of Duty 4 Modern Warefare and I think its a pretty fun game. Lately I've been noticing some games that are shooters that are similar to Call of Duty and I was wondering which games are worth playing.

I think it was Battlefield, Medal of Honor, ands Killzone have been mentioned. Are these games fun? Are they better the CoD? Are they almost as good as CoD? & what are some other good first person shooters?

....Ayyye.

#3 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4826 posts) -

Erm...

#4 Posted by Geno (6477 posts) -

Metro 2033 and Crysis are the best shooters of this generation. STALKER is also pretty good but a little unforgiving.

#5 Posted by Athadam (697 posts) -

None of those games have the same feel that Call of Duty has. If you've only played the first Modern Warfare, why not try the 2nd or 3rd one? What do you like about it? The singleplayer or the multiplayer? 

#6 Posted by TehFlan (1944 posts) -

You should try Duke Nukem Forever.

#7 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4826 posts) -

@Geno: But those are all great games; he said he wants some like CoD.

Ooooooooooh...

Yes, try. That's as far as anyone should go for that game.

Try Quake Live?

#10 Posted by hmmisee (156 posts) -

I heard Dwarf Fortress is similar to Call of Duty.

#11 Posted by mrfizzy (1541 posts) -

I found that Medal of Honor was no where near as bad as I thought it was going to be. However it is not as batshit insane as COD, they went for a more "gritty", realistic presentation.

#12 Posted by Vinny_Says (5719 posts) -

Borderlands has the "feel" of CoD in my eyes, but the two could not be anymore different in all other aspects.

But then again just saying you like CoD4 gives me no information. Do you like the singleplayer? the multiplayer? the setting? the rewards system?

#13 Posted by udabenshen (178 posts) -

Blacklight retribution is fun and free.

#14 Posted by PenguinDust (12551 posts) -

If you want to try something that's a step up from CODMW, try the two Rainbow Six Vegas games. They move at a reasonable pace and have a decent arsenal. It adds some tactical gameplay, too since you'll direct your teammates to flank or surprise the enemy.

The closest experience in MP is Battlefield 3.

Yeah, you might get some better suggestions if you gave people a better idea of what it is you like about CoD. 
 
The platforms you play on would help as well.
#17 Posted by saoakden (129 posts) -

Yeah, I was not thinking clearly when I posted this. Probably my worst forum topic I ever posted on this website. After I posted this, I started looking into the games I listed and I realize that CoD gives off a different kind of experience. I should try those games out for myself when I get the chance.

@Vinny_Says: Yeah just saying I liked the game doesn't give out a lot of info. I like the single player mode and I like the multiplayer of the game.

#18 Posted by Imsorrymsjackson (855 posts) -

Singularity is worth a punt.

#19 Posted by clstirens (847 posts) -

Battlefield 3 is good, but it's "slower" paced than CoD. As in, run and gun works sometimes, but often you'll just get yourself killed, fast.

#20 Posted by saoakden (129 posts) -

@ProfessorEss: In more detail, I have CoD Modern Warefare for the Xbox 360. I like the story in the singular player. I liked how the game was set in modern times unlike previous games were they were set in WW2. I don't care when the game takes place. It can be set in the old west or the year 2030 and I wouldn't care. But if they take place during the same era and don't do anything to make it different in the next game, then I start to worry.The multiplayer was fun. being able to go up against other players, even though people would take me out with a headshot oor something.

#21 Posted by supamon (1333 posts) -

@saoakden: Just curious here but what other games do you own? Is CoD the only franchise or genre you play?

#22 Posted by zudthespud (3283 posts) -

Crysis 2 multiplayer is a complete imitation of Call of Duty, if that's what you are looking for I recommend it.

#23 Posted by saoakden (129 posts) -

@supamon: Are you refering to first person shooters? If so, I also play Halo. But I only played Halo 3.

#24 Posted by Emperor_Jimmu (249 posts) -

Have you considered video games?

#25 Posted by saoakden (129 posts) -

@Emperor_Jimmu: Huh?

#26 Posted by Zaccheus (1797 posts) -

What is happening here? I'm so confused. I just see a troll trolling everyone, but I think that's just my internet jadedness talking. I don't know what's real anymore.

#27 Posted by SexyToad (2760 posts) -

What do you mean similar? Similar as shooting games or similar gameplay? Battlefield is way different than Cod. That have jets, tanks, random are, huge maps, lower health, no Healy regeneration, and more of a team based game. Don't get me wrong it's a fun game. Look up gameplay at YouTube to see if you like it. Medal of honor I would say is the closest to the gameplay but i don't remember it being good. Just get the news cod, modern warfare 3 is really awesome, and get modern warfare 2 if you are into the storyline.

@saoakden: I'm sorry, I'm not being helpful. This is just the most open ended question ever asked. It reminds me of a question answered on My Brother, My Brother and Me; Recommend a film other than The Lake House.

If you enjoyed Halo 3 I can't help but suggest that you give Reach or ODST a shot. I enjoyed both quite a bit. 
Battlefield is also another solid suggestion. It has a lot in common with CoD but the vehicles add a whole different dimension. 
 
I realize these are pretty straightforward suggestions but frankly I think they're the popular ones for a reason. Plus popularity usually means it's quicker and easier to get into multiplayer matches.
#30 Posted by Jimbo (9863 posts) -

CoD 4 was pretty much the pinnacle of this particular brand of FPS, imo.

I assume it's either that or the poster is just really, really, really young. Like maybe ten or so.

So you don't play any other games? Halo 3 and Modern Warfare 1 are the only games you have played?

#33 Posted by believer258 (11984 posts) -

Crysis 2 and Homefront are close enough, though Call of Duty is Call of Duty and nothing worth playing is exactly like it. Battlefield looks close but is different in several enough ways to make it quite different.

For good first person shooters in general, though, try Bulletstorm, Halo Reach, Crysis 1, Bioshock, Singularity, and FEAR.

English isn't your first language, is it?

Are you putting this into Google Translate?

Csgo when that comes out. Also serious sam 3.

#35 Posted by saoakden (129 posts) -

@supamon: In terms of first person shooters on the 360 yes. Believe me I played a bunch of other games. I have played at least 28-30 games on the 360. Oh yeah I almost forgot, I played Black Ops, I liked the game but I only played like 4 levels. That's because it was my stepbrothers game and he traded it in at gamestop.

@believer258: English is my first language. I only use google translate to translate english to spanish.

#37 Edited by Seppli (10251 posts) -

@saoakden:

Do yourself a favor and get Battlefield Bad Company 1 & 2 & BF1943. Campaigns are enjoyable enough, and depending on preference multiplayer-wise, they blow CoD:MW & sequels out of the water. Battlefield 3's Close Quarters DLC has similar gameplay to the Call of Duty type of games, and is quite successful at it too.

Also - were you born yesterday? No offense intended, just curious. Oh, and here's a montage of BF:BC 2 Vietnam - t'was hella good...

CS:Go isn't like CoD. =/

#39 Posted by Alexander (1721 posts) -

Personally I feel you will be disappointed with the single player in any Battlefield game compared to Call of Duty. Unless multiplayer is your thing Battlefield is middling.

I think while not an FPS Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 1 & 2 are pretty good. They have the scale and setting similar to Modern Warfare and the campaign is really good, they're much more forgiving than the original game.

Another Tom Clancy title would be Rainbow Six: Vegas, again it has a decent single player, again it's more forgiving than earlier games in the franchise and it's a first person military shooter in a modern day setting.

The above titles can be picked up dirt cheap on eBay.

If you do want to do multiplayer, and only then, consider Battlefield.

Hmm, you really think M2033 is on par with those two FPS titans?

Ya but its a good game.

#43 Posted by supamon (1333 posts) -

@saoakden: Well, the problem is Modern Warfare has pretty much cornered the market for modern shooters so there isn't a lot of choices for modern shooters except for Battlefield and Medal of honor.

You didn't state whether you minded sci-fi but there are quite a few good sci-fi shooters on the market. There are plenty of good suggestions in this thread already but I'll say try Bioshock series, Syndicate, Halo Reach/ODST and Rage.

Yes. Metro is also one of the few shooters that provides a story other than canned action movie melodrama (which unfortunately even Crysis is a little guilty of). Bullets as money is an interesting mechanic, and it lays claim to a certain degree of pacing and atmosphere that is somewhat unseen in games as a whole.

I really didn't like Metro 2033 all that much, but I'm right there with you with Crysis. Might be my favourite FPS of all time.

#46 Posted by saoakden (129 posts) -

@supamon: Thats what Im starting to figure out. Call of Duty Modern Warefare was given to me as a gift and I just tried it out.

I really don't mind sci-fi shooters. The Sci-fi games come out with interesting weapons and interesting gameplay. I mentioned I played Halo 3. I heard of Rage, it sounds interesting. I have defintely heard of Bioshock before. I never bother to pick up the game when it first came out because at the time I didn't own a Xbox 360. I want to pick up the Halo games but I need money and I have never heard of the game Syndicate. Some of the other games that were mentioned earlier sound interesting as well. I think a few people mentioned Crysis 2. I'm not 100% sure who brought it up on this forum.

#47 Posted by ToTheNines (752 posts) -

A game like Call Of Duty 4.. hmm.. Nope can't think of any.

#48 Posted by Grillbar (1872 posts) -

batlefield 3/bdcompany 1 and 2?

#49 Posted by SockemJetpack (408 posts) -

Blacklight: Retribution is decent. More customization and it's free too.

#50 Posted by Sackmanjones (4739 posts) -
@saoakden A lot of people are hot and cold on rage but I liked it. It's a bit slower than those shooters and there is some roaming around but the shooting sections are great. Also it's only 20 bucks and I'd be willing to bet the 2 other halo games are also around the 20-30 market.
