It seems as though infinity ward has lost all of their capabilities to make games these days as im sure ALOT of you will agree as ive been hearing nothing but bad things about it ever since the game came out. LOOKS like Treyarch did a better job at creating "call of duty" than infinity ward themselves.......
Me being a very dedicated cod player, its hard for me to say this but its come down to this game being an entire letdown.
Here's a list of all the things that drove me to this decision:
1. Game Is extrememly fast paced, much more so than all of the other call of duty games ever released. so this leaves you with one option only, RUN AND GUN.
2a. The maps are INSANELY small and its nothing but a cluster-F.
2b. These small maps have MILLIONS (yes literally millions) of back routes so you and your team members are consistantly getting shot IN THE BACK.
2c. Theres is NOT ONE out in the open map at all.
3a. Hit detection in this game is complete GARBAGE. When i shoot someone with half a clip, no matter the distance with a m4a1 and get all hit markers, i EXPECT THEM TO DIE.
3b. It seems as though my first 5 bullets do nothing ( mostly on laggy servers). Even being laggy, this should still not happen, then by the time i actually start to get hit markers, im already dead b/c it takes everyone else 3-4 bullets to kill me with any gun. ( i swear people throw skitttles at me and i die sometimes)
3c. When im shooting at someone and decide to pull back for cover, i expect that cover to FREAKIN cover me! not have the game over compensate for some bs latency issues and give someone the kill when theyre not even shooting anything but thin air or into a 8ft thick brick wall.
4. Problems with the kill streak system.... For one, this just happened to me last night.... it was rather funny actually..... the whole other team, a group of 6 people or so,ALL had support class on. ALL with emp. Domination game, dont remember the map, but my team was winning like 140 to like 100. the other team midway through, activated an emp... before that emp had ended, id say like 2 seconds before it did, they threw another one up.... and then after that one, another one, and so forth till the game ended. I stilled killed alot of them so i didnt care much but that is an exploit that is RIDICULOUS. having emp's active for all of 6 minutes is pretty stupid in my opinion.
5. Sniper rifles...... Hmmm lets see, if you make the .50 cal a one hitter quitter then make it a ONE HITTER QUITTER. Not a One Hitter Quitter***** with asterics. (*** may not only kill in one shot if u hit him in the throat or if u shoot him in the back. or sometimes u just plain wont kill him with one shot no matter where u hit him)
im sure theres more things i can come up with. and im sure i will!
Bottom line is that Infinity Ward had lost their touch and should have stopped making games after MW2. Call of duty 4: modern warfare was by FAR the best call of duty that was made and after that everything went down hill.
AND for all of you that read this and think im a noob, im not, i average over 3.5 K/d in all of the cods that i own and i know how to shoot a gun thank you very much :)
so unless all of these things are miraculously fixed in the next patch for the game, i consider this one a WASTE of 60 bucks. Thanks IW!
