Request: Add Negative Review for a player being an idiot. One the gives terrible and stupid advice such as suggesting to turn off your Xbox will fix a problem. I’ve had a few players today already think that restarting your Xbox 360 will fix the Xbox Live Servers so that finding and starting a game in Call of Duty 4 won’t cause any problems. Lol.
Another Request: Add Negative Review for a player having 56k or any other terrible connection (or located in the middle of Africa or another country whom I wish not to play with anyways).
I take back on what I said about the update (originally thought it was bad ass), have learned half the stuff I thought I read about what would be released in new update was not true at all/not there.
Guide is much faster. x2! Should of been like this ages ago but it still needs a little work
No Group Chat – seriously? Why has this STILL not been added after 2 YEARS.
No Clan Support – same goes with above. Still nothing, why?
No Friends List Grouping – Wish they’d add this so I can group those on my friends list per game, clan, real life friends, etc etc.
No Friends Comments – Goes with above, basically the same.
Profile – not as great as I thought it’d be. Not that I care for the feature but nothing to get excited over either. Go use Facebook.
Friends of Friends – just useless, will be used for the first week and die afterwards. Probably already have those friends on my friends list.
It seems all their updates focus on the Dashboard Blades and Marketplace. I know I am not alone when I say this but I rarely use any of those feature yet alone purchase any content (waste of money). Yes, sometimes I’ll download a arcade game, demo or video game trailer but that’s very rare and really it. I use the Xbox 360 to play video games among almost everyone else I know.
This is just a short list so far, I know there are other features that were added but I have yet to use them such as video content and using XviD/DivX. Xbox Original Titles seem like a waste of time and money. I’ve played some of those games before and probably those that will be added in the future. New games today are better, I believe they cost $15 (over priced I think) and unless you have a big HDD, you are limited to those you purchase/have to delete or upgrade HDD.
Call of Duty 5 among other Activision games such Guitar Hero 4 and a new Tony Hawk title were announced yesterday. No surprise to me as these 3 games are awesome, especially since Call of Duty 4 rocked so much and sold a lot. Same with how fun Guitar Hero is.
Finally, I am writing a review on one of the greatest games I have ever played. Now given it’s single player might be a little short, I beat it in around 10 8 hours on Veteran first play through (I’m use to COD Veteran Difficulty), it’s still a great game no matter what you say. I’ll start with single player, the graphics are insane, the feel the game gives you as you play through, I enjoyed a lot. What I liked most about the game is the sniper level, given they could of made shooting the sniper at that one point of the level easier and more explainable, it was still so much fun prior to crawl and take out enemies and afterwards when your running to extraction.
Multiplayer is what makes this game so much better, it has to be one of the best multiplayer games I have ever played and their are few of those in my opinion. I am addicted to it sort as I was back in the days when I was addicted to MOH:AA and Call of Duty 1/2 online (Never got into 3 nor enjoyed it). It’s ranking system may be fast but it’s really not that fast after you get in the 30′s and have to reach 55. Rather your good or not unless you cheat and boost which just means you fail at life.
But what’s even better is that there is a ‘Prestige Mode’. What this is once you reach level 55 and fill it’s bar (basically as if you’d fill the bar to reach level 56). You are given the option to enter Prestige Mode and start all over again stating you are an “awesome player” but technically, this is not entirely true as I have played with higher ranks and MOST/99% of them suck so badly. What happens when you entire prestige mode? You look your rank of 55 and start at 1 again, you are given a special badge for each prestige mode you enter (there are 10). You have to rank up to get all your weapons back, you start all over with challenges and being able to create classes. The only thing you basically do get/keep is a new shiny badge and you keep the ability to change your clan tag. There is nothing wrong with this though but I do they should at least unlock all challenges because by the time you unlock the other challenges in the deeper ranks, you’ve completed them prior but don’t get credit for them and you’ll end up going into prestige mode again most likely before you even finish any of them.
Online plays smooth though, it will get even better with the recent updates they have been talking about doing to fix a few some problems such as dropping the game if the host whom 98% of the time you have no idea who is. This update will pick someone else to host it instead. I am not sure but hope in the next update that it will not find you games where they are almost over and of course, you are on the losing team. That or have a minute left, so many scenarios I have been in and sure others that have played the game a lot and understand what I am talking about, have been in too.
I know the game doesn’t have any stat recording like Halo 3 has. This was suppose to be in the game but they pulled it out. They say it will be coming though, I am guessing they should have this for us on their 2nd update though this next update would be awesome to through that in with. I enjoyed that about Halo 3, especially how you can check your stats online (website).
Overall, this game gets a 10/10.
Where to start… this game is absolutely terrible in almost every aspect. It’s aiming system is absolutely horrible, ‘sticking’ to objects is not worth it and barely works half the time, the A.I. of both your team and the enemy are terrible, and so many other things are wrong with the game. As you play through, my brother and I are going through co-op at the moment, there will be parts where the game is just stupid and a lot of it comes down to everything I just pointed out and I know I am leaving a few things out but I’ve said some of the main problems already.
The game could of been better, playing it, I think it could of been. If maybe they had testers to fix out the bugs. They could of made their aiming system so much better, one way they could of at least made it tolerable is if they enemies went down quicker. It takes almost a clip from a P90, Assault Rifle or SAW to take an enemy down, if not more. If you run out of ammo, MOST-OF-THE-TIME, not always, your ‘teammates’ will offer you some so you can refill, they should of just made it unlimited because it’s annoying. I remember doing the bank mission, like 3rd/4th level, first thing you do as a team at the beginning of the game, having to pick up other weapons because while he’s working on the safe he can’t give you ammo and sometimes (at other points of the game) they just won’t give you ammo when you need it.
Overall I give this game a 6/10. I just can’t seem myself to give it any higher. It almost has no replay value because you will not want to replay it unless you have to for any achievements missed. I know about it’s multiplayer, I have not tried it but will at least play it a little, it sounds cool and I was told to check it out because it’s a pretty good concept. I also may come back and update this review a little as I play through the game more and finish it. I’m not sure how far I am, it seems I’m near the end but I could be wrong on that.
