Call of Duty:WW2

Postby ray245 » 2017-04-27 07:18am

It took them forever to return to WW2. Sadly, they removed the Russians and the British campaigns, which used to be in every old CoD games.
Although this should be the actual trailer instead.

Just read an article on it, it was really emphasis the grim darkness and horrors of war. Sound it was inspired by the WW1 Battlefield game...

Inspired by, copied same difference
But seriously this is WW2, we have SO many theaters of war but god forbid you don't show the Normandy Beach landings on one of the shitty beaches.

One of these days we are going to get a game with in Normandy featuring Sword, Juno or Gold.

If we went by these games WW2 started with Pearl Harbour, then the Americans went straight over to Normandy to kick Hitler's ass. :P

Still pissed at Activision for having broken co-op for World at War and Cybertron for their Steam versions. Sure, there's a work-around, but I shouldn't be required to fuck around with VPNs and LAN hosting while playing a game from one of (if not the) biggest video game publishers out there.

As for the game, it seems they've finally scraped all they can from "modern" and "5 minutes into the future" broshooters barrel and are taking a step back to WW2. Not even my words, Infinity Ward gave Treyarch shit for World at War. A lead dev at IW saying in interview that the game was a step back from the "progress" they made in Modern Warfare and that the inclusion of Nazi Zombies was awful.

And I liked MW, but fuck that guy.

Though supposedly Sledgehammer really has their shit together. IIRC, these were the guys at EA who came up with the concept of Dead Space, which was the only remotely original idea to come out of EA proper in forever. So it might be worth a look, but I'm going off a lot of old memory and annoyance at the series.

IW has a horrible development culture. They removed sprint in CoD 2 when another dev team added in for the first COD expansion game. They refused to entertain any notions of depicting the Pacific war and many other fronts of WW2, and spend their time recreating Doom.

They deserve all the shit being thrown at the dev team for coming up with Infinite Warfare.

Well, the trailer looks impressive, but I'm not sure how I'm better off buying this than all the numerous other WW2 shooters already out there.

Really disappointed that this will be yet another generic US-centred WW2 game.

Yup, but its a purely reactive response to the success of BF1, which has everything but Americans, other then a few American small arms, and so the suits at the top no doubt had no grasp of this appeal at all.

But hey maybe they can put in some of the less amazing American history, like when the Army Air Force killed the head of Army Ground Forces with massive carpet bombing.

Call of Duty 2: Big Red One actually featured Operation Torch and Operation Husky, though you can be forgiven for not knowing or remembering.

To go back to the days when the Call of Duty games gave equal time to the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union. Hell, Call of Duty 3 even had Canadian and Polish campaigns.
