Yeah! CoD 4 on the wii, just like the other versions, just worse graphics and possibly worse controles.

Wii sucks. Woo!

I don't think any machines for the next 5 years will be able to handle Price's mustache.
 
EDIT: Aw jeez, they're gonna play with the low sensitivity settings. This isn't gonna be pretty.

I think i like the idea of Cod4 on the Wii more than the execution!

Modern warfare 1 is great, but this doesn't interest me at all for some reason.

Posted by wolf_blitzer85

Well if you have absolutely nothing else to play COD 4 on....

Posted by XaiaX

They show the nuke in the intro? 
 
Huh. 
 
I guess they figure you already know about that by now.

Well the graphics are pretty good for the Wii, but that's like saying the graphics are pretty good for the PS2.

cod4's maps were so much better than MW2's :(

@Erik: 
at least better controls than the ps3/360 version 
Posted by Griddler

The thing I don't like about this (And other Wii FPS's) is the weird window you have to move the cursor to in order to turn.

Oh my god. I haven't seen graphics that bad since early-era PS2. Hell who am I kidding, even X Squad looked better than this. Jesus christ it looks fucking HIDEOUS.

It's weird how the gun moves and not just your whole body. Makes sense, I guess, but still..

Haha really? The impression you got from that video was "hey these controls look smoother and more accurate than the regular ones!"? I mean I know there's a learning curve involved but even so, you're never going to get the precision out of a Wiimote that's comparable to mouse or controllers.
Posted by JackSukeru

Hm, maybe I should play COD4.

Posted by SammydesinasNL

I wonder what it would look like if they remade the opening cinematic on the reflex version.
Posted by lukeyk

Call of duty 1, or Mw for wii. 
 
Ill go call of duty classic anyday.

Worst version of the game but  there are some people out there who only have a Wii.

Dual analog is anything but precise. It's terrible. At least with a Wiimote I can actually point at things quickly and precisely.
 
Not saying I'd buy a downgraded version of a game I played to death with a mouse (which IS superior) but still.

Why does everyone give the Wii a pass "Looks pretty good for it being on the Wii"...  No SCREW that.  It looks like shit.  I'm sorry but the Wii really is not for this kind of game.

Posted by Scooper

If you've only got a Wii and have been dieing to play this game (not that dieing to play it obviously or you'd already would have) I can see this being an exciting game.

actually I played this game myself and I never said better than mouse and keyboard
Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff

Seems like a pretty good port. Surprised at how well the online works. You got into matches quickly!

Posted by Driadon

I will admit, I might rent it to see just how good Wii multiplayer CAN be done.

The wiimote is NOT precise. Maybe you could argue it's accurate, but there's a difference between accuracy and precision.

that co-op is so weird, interesting how they are just like hey have a friend play as your extra gun arm.

Wonder how Claude feels about this.

Never had any troubles with precision on my end.

I <3 Quick Looks, but guys, stop it with the training levels already. 
 
They are boring, uninteresting, and not fun to watch (or even play for that matter).

This looks like it handles like a nightmare.  Can you imagine doing the Epilogue on Vet on this?

Awesome 'jump' there Jeff!

Edited by Noodles

I really hope this game tanks. Publishers need to learn that a straight FPS isn't what Wii owners want to play, we have other systems for that. Give us something unique and fresh, something that utilizes the Wii's strengths instead of emphasizing it's weaknesses. /sigh

Yeah sorry, but "Quickly and Precisely" is something that the Wii Remote does not provide.  Dual analog is way more accurate than that.
Posted by Light_Bahamut

I wonder if the Wii MotionPlus could possibly help with FPS controls. I'm not sure how, but they could figure it out. Because as it stands, they're just frustrating approximations of more precise control schemes.

Okay, if you insist,, but that doesn't change the fact that dual analog is dragging a slow inaccurate stick around and hoping that autoaim takes care of the rest.
Posted by Deusoma

Admittedly I've never played Call of Duty 4, but this looks pretty good for a Wii game. Having another reticle moving around in "co-op" mode looks like it would get really distracting though.

Jeff didn't bother trying the other control options, so this video isn't a very good representation. With the advanced settings you'll get more precision than you can ever get with an analog stick. 
 
Also, you can enable leaning with the nunchuk, which works pretty well. It's better than having the feature totally cut out anyway.

I think it's great that the wii finally gets COD4, but why so late? Why did it take Activision 2 years to do a port? (or was it 3 years?) Also, why didn't they do MW2 as well? Sigh...proof why the Wii doesn't do well... they get ports so late that Wii owners buy other Consoles! 
 
Also, why did they use the same intro as the one on the PS3, PC and Xbox versions? It's like advertising GREAT graphics when you really get a guy in a ghille suit that looks like a walking shit ...
