Pretty disappointed after all the hype. Far too much video scenes in between action. The actual gameplay is not bad, but doesn't feel as good as the earlier CoD and Medal of Honour games. The amount of storyline is plain boring and the game itself is way too short in campaign mode.
Plus the added scenes where you have to wiggle the stick around before pressing one of the buttons is just plain tedious, its like playing some kind of mobile phone app for kids!
Not the sort of game you'd come back to after finishing.
Very linear, almost to the point where you're just going through the motions. Each mission is different, incl tanks, AA guns etc they're all short and very little choice in play style.
Story is engaging 'enough' and the graphics are good as expected.
Expect 3-4 hours of gameplay as an average.
No real tutorials.. either in the initial set-up, games/maps. Thrown in at the deep end.
You are apparently 'matched' with people in the same rank (zero) however end up being instantly killed by people who obviously have superior equipment, and stats (?)
I managed to sneak up behind an enemy player and emptied most of the magazine into them before they turned around and one-shot kill me. Very unbalanced.
I play games (single player and online) extensively.. gave up after an hour on this one online due to balance and it's not user-friendly with no assistance/tutorial. Played a map where you start out as a crayon (true story) no explanation as to why you're a crayon, and what you need to do. Just 'work it out for yourself against all these others that have already done it hundreds of times'.
No wonder they are dropping the price ..... its awful!!! worst version yet ...... and the matchmaking and hit detection omg ..... its been bad for a while to be fair on this series but the clan convinced me to get .... damn them lol ...... ohhhh how i hark back to the wonderful days of COD 4
This may seem like a minor complaint but upon receiving the game it was a localised Arabic version. I contacted the seller who kindly informed me the game is playable in English and if I wasn't pleased I could simply return (which I have). I am just slightly irked that the image advertised for the game (The UK edition) was not what I received.
Was Dubois buying it as the previous CoD games have been crap. Sledgehammer have went back to basics and this bring the original feel to CoD back. Does take a little time to get used to not double jumping etc.
Loved the game and environment! The only reason I did not gave 5 stars is that I have to spend another 35£ to have full access to the game via the Season Pass. Do not like pay for the game and in few months have only half the content available, just doesn't seem right.
Really enjoyed opening story line and as I continue playing this game it seems to be coming more and more interesting but I will have to wait and see what the game has been like once I have completed it.
