  1. I'm buying this for my son for Christmas.

    Anyone know if it's as good as the others?

    Not played this one. Had the previous COD which was excellent. No reason that this one won't be the same.

    I really enjoyed the story of the game, although felt it was a little short.

    I've played it on xbox live a few times, but just get killed every five seconds. I swear some people must live on their xbox to be that accurate at such a loony speed.
  4. I share your pain Ted...there was I time when I could give my son a game, but now I just watch!

    Still haven't got this, played all the COD games since the beginning.
    Anybody played Battlefield3? I found that a really good game too.

    I started to get royally sick of the CoD series after MW, since it just seemed to be the same game time after time after time.
    (I still maintain that the original CoD4:MW was the last great FPS we've seen* and everyone has copied the format since.:cool:Smile:

    Problem is, they also copied themselves.
    More damningly, they never addressed the cheating issues that have plagued the game (and still do) and almost totally handed themselves over to console development (it's all about the money).
    BF3 is a far better game, but I'd already vowed to boycott EA after the travesty that was BFBC2 and had no plans to purchase it.
    Unfortunately my brother bought me it for Christmas, so I had to show willing for a bit while he was up visiting. :Grin:

    MW3 was F2P on Steam a few weeks back for a weekend and some friends I have on gaming forums (who hadn't already tried it..preferring BF3 instead) gave it a go, and the reports that came back were not good.

    ftr FPS I reckon were groundbreakers were:
    Day of Defeat (Original, not Source)
    BF1942 with the Desert Combat Mod(s)
    Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (which is still pretty well populated online even after five years) :cool:

    Totally agree about COD4, I was amazed when that came out. I still go back and play it now. The newer versions are basically copies but I do enjoy them.

    My boyfriend loves military/war games and was all into this game for awhile. He's since moved on to other games.

    On this most days, I love it.. Play with my lad on xbox live.. If you need the practice then play the zombies it's great fun.

    COD4 is expected to be a big improvement (so Dan my wee man tells me).

    There is a prob with some of the games and hackers,

    If you levels are not high enough you tend to be left with the stock guns which are pants so kills can be harder to obtain as you may well need more hit than the guy /girl trying to kill you with a far better weapon.

    Still I love playing this on line. As for the swearing etc can be a prob but just switch off mike or bar that individual.

    COD Black Opps my lad has them all..

    He is 11 and can beat me every time and I thought I was quite good :-(

    My daughter is an avid gamer, just like me. And, for obvious reasons, she doesn't play this game as she's only 8 years old. Still, she is way more proficient at the games she plays than I'll ever be. It's fun raising a second generation gamer. These are the kids that will be shaping the future of our gaming experience as they mature and demand far more sophisticated, interactive game play.

    Finally got this about a month ago. Story way too short as is usual these days.
    Online though is great. Finally worked my way up to some decent weapons so I stand a chance.
