I am stuck with no money with only Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3 to comfort me. I have played them both into the ground being a brigadier in Halo 3 and having all but one golden gun in Call of Duty 4. I need something new. I also own Mass Effect, a very cool game, alhtough it starts slow and the amount of story variation isn't nearly as impressive as KOTOR 2. GRAW 2 is my tactical shooter, another great game, but the multiplayer is limited with its lack of cover system and icky controls.
I am quite the xbox lover but the graphics on PS3 can sway me if they are good enough (I'm looking at you Resistance 2). As you can see, I like to shoot. Alot. Even on computer, Counter Strike: Source and Americas Army keep me awake very late at night. Now for the good stuff.
I considered buying Call of Duty: World at War (let's call if COD5 for now, W.A.W is not a pleasent acronym). However, what stopped me was the fact that, well, its in World War II, and I have already had my fair share of that (thank you Day of Defeat: Source). By the way, Day of Defeat: Source has the best Kar98k the video game world has ever seen.
One thing that made Modern Warfare great was that it wasn't WWII. You didn't know how the story would turn out, so you paid more attention. IW handled the American and British sides very well and they intertwined perfectly. But the best thing was, you could now get all the modern weapon love that you wanted. Blastin' with an AK is definately way more fun than just that lame ol' M1 Garand. I'ts just more gangsta. Another thing, "aperture sights"? Are you kidding me? C'mon Treyarch, you are ruining my good WWII fun with your plagerism. Infinity Ward should beat your asses. I just saw the video review of COD5 on here (nice one btw) and I have to say: "Is that the exact same game?" I mean seriously! Look! The yellow xp bar at the bottom, the directional pad inventory, the map thing. It all looks pretty much the same, right down to the +10 you see when you get a kill. It really does look like a mod or re-skin.
I'm not saying I don't like WWII games, Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway looks and plays great. The tactical twist actually keeps me interested rather than just another shooter crazy run around. The gore is awsome too. My carpal tunnel is kicking in so I'm gonna go eat something, later.
