It's CoD. Always been the same. It's like the Michael Bay of video games.

I'm enjoying the MP. Which is why I buy the games anyway.

I’ve only played the campaign and it’s a bad CoD campaign

Okay, I’ve got up to the tanks and I quit. I can’t remember the last time I was this bored playing a video game

Oh my god this is the single most painful video game experience of the year. The combat is really slow, the characters are so cliche they make me want to be ill, there are a couple of nice, smaller set pieces, but for the most part they are confusing mess and I’m not even sure what’s happening. The stealth has to go.

This is just. I don’t even care anymore. I’m not even listening to the orders the NPC’s are giving I’m just running around killing people until it lets me stop “Get their flanks, we have to be quie—“

BANG BANG BANG FUK YOUR QUIET

That sounds like a lot of effort

I'll tell you what it is for me, it's just a really sour combination of slow, peak around cover combat + weapons that aren't satisfying or fun to shoot + enemies that are surprisingly bullet spongey - sometimes for some reason + dull combat scenarios. I'm trying to think of one point in the game outside of Stealth which wasn't me either on a turret or sitting behind a sandbag. There's just no variation or craziness which past CoD's have had. It is painful to play.

I don't even believe it's the WW2 setting, I'm not a believer in bad ideas I'm just a believer in bad execution. Which is what this is. It's just entirely unexciting.

Well if you want to murder Nazis there's always Wolfenstein.

Saying that I've played very little of it and am confused on what to think of its weird Terrence Mallick/Tarantino mashup style

It's similar to what I remember of earlier CoD's. Problem is the cool explosive set pieces have been done to death and the setting is still very familiar, despite not being in WW2 for quite some time.

I've not played a CoD since... I can't remember. It's been a while. The Spacey/Troy baker one I think.

If I was to want a good SP FPS - I'd choose Wolfenstein. If I want to get shot by twitchy 12 year olds on speed or play Zombies - I'd choose CoD.

The last one I played was Advanced Warfare as well. And for the life of me I can't remember anything that happens in it specifically, but I remember thinking both about that and Ghosts that they were call because every level had something in it that was different. It felt like the shooting stuff regular was just a bridge to get to the next cool thing. This is just the same thing over and over every level.

"Daniels, get in there!"
"Daniels, clear 'em out!"
"Daniels, get on that turret!"
"Daniels, get that vehicle!"

Also, and I understand it's WW2, so there are only so many creative liberties you can take on something so familiar looking, but this game is boring to look at. Like it's sharp as shit but just aesthetics wise it is so overwhelmingly grey.

I will say, because I'm not looking for reasons to be negative, I just done the plane level and that was actually cool. I haven't seen a game do plane combat in that way before and I liked it.

There you go. I found a good thing to say.

Well, it took me 13 matches but I finally got 10 kills in multiplayer

This not for me, it’s far too difficult

Anyone else having major server issues with this? I'm constantly just warping around all the time. I got a double kill in the last match and felt pretty good about it, but then when it was shown for "play of the game" my shots weren't on target at all. Just bad connections favoured me instead.

My first match today I went 1-14, my last match I got a kill steak that enabled me to drop a bomb on two people. I do not understand how to play this game.

Equip an Assault. STG44 till you unlock the FG42 or Bar. Lay down when you reload ready for anyone coming to kill you for shooting and appearing on mini map. Equip the requisition basic training perk - letsyou build up the score streaks n have some fun at least.

Best I can do for you.
