Well I got it for Xmas from the lovely GFs Mum .......after a debacle with Tesco Entertainment...nubs
I haven't finished the campaign, but when i do will review that.Multiplayer
It gets good
after level 30 ......you'll have learnt the maps and worked out your style, unlocked a weapon that suits you and turned off the multiplayer music
its pointless and distracting.
Initially play feels sluggish almost heavy compared to MW2 and weapons are more homogenised with few standing out in a particular area, leading to less specialismsMaps
maps are small none, sniping on a grand scale is non existent, although my personal favourite sniping spot is on nuke town, tiny map!Action Dive
pointless but funak74u
overpowered piece of nubcake nonsense
this gun has high damage, high accuracy, little to no recoil and similar range to an assault rifle it needs balancing.perks
initially feel ineffectual, but with pro versions carve your play styleQuirks
as always games are all very similar, but its the little things that impress me the attention to detail, one of the reasons i love halo is its a rich series full of little quirks and thoughtful touches.
camo, facepaint, reticles, emblems - all these are awesome, we play games for fun and personalised fun is even better, i've got a little wheelmen logo on my gun, and every time i rank up it gets a little more complicated, i've stopped buying weapons and perks with my cod points now i buy new layers to get creative with.
if i die which happens less frequently of recent, ill drop my gun and some enraged prepubescent "gangster" will pick it up and see on the side is a wheelmen logo with HWM scratched !!!
party call out notifier - if your in a party it notifies when you talk in game with a different symbol instead of no notifier, little bit of programming means i can be in party chat and not miss out on as much.Killstreaks
arent as over powered at low levels, their kills dont count towards getting your next one and are more varied and fun.
dogs are scary napalm is dangerious and the big ones are over powered, but if youve let somebody get that may kills in a row, its probably best to end the game quicker
The RC!!!!!! man this car is awesome like a mini warthog that explodes, and i've recently discovered left trigger is hand break!! try it you will be reluctant to remove it for the sheer fun it is to drive around.Down sides
unless dedicated servers start to happen its gonna be a bit laggy at times and host is still gonna prevail, but this cod deals with it best.
i do miss the specialisms, but im sure with higher ranks new stuff will be available.
I do miss scavenger claymores, my pp2000 and the M21, but games move on and i look forward to the g11 and its low scope! and im getting good with the CZwhaterver pistol
view, hiding in this game is trickier the view is quite wide angle and unless your already hidden ducking out of the sight-line of an enemy is pretty much pointless as they will be able to see you round the wall, its hard to explain but it works like a wide angle lense.
hope this helps people.
COD and Halo are the two big hitters in first person shooters and this one is really growing on me.
