I just bought it today, and I think it’s awesome. What do you think of it?

I like it, but there are entirely too many elements that remind me of COD:WaW, and I wasn’t crazy about that.
I like the revamped zombies. The anti-climactic sound effects (like the grenades) could be more exciting.

I think it is better than the last one. Definitely better than Medal Of Honor.

I’m liking the fact that it is more graphic with the violence part. I am still shocked since where I had to take out a guard with that sort of twisted blade and it showed how it went all the way in the back of his neck. Awesome.

I also like the upgraded zombies. The guns kind of suck on that part though. Imo.

Apparently there is an assassination mission with Fidel Castro as a target, that kind of shit turns most ordinary, mature, non autistic people right off, despite their politics.

@mammal It’s a game. so you have to look at it that way. There have been many games with assassination missions in them. I don’t see what the big deal is because it’s Castro. He definitely doesn’t have the reputation for being a humanitarian. Out of curiosity, would it bother you if it was Hitler or pol Pot?

@Russell_D_SpacePoet but he does have precisely the reputation of being a humanitarian, that’s the problem Castro was/is a humanist, and is still living and why on earth would you mention Castro in the same sentence as Hitler or Pol Pot? other than Pol Pot had leftist leanings. i think it’s pretty sick and unhealthy to bring kids up on this shit.

Love it, but wait…..we’re all noobs at least for now. Let the ownage commence :¬) By the way, the r.c bomb, nice touch if a little gimmicky.

@mammal If parents are letting their young kids play this game, I would have to question their parenting skills anyway. Was Castro not working with Che? Che was racist and murderer. Birds of a feather maybe? All that aside, this game is not a kids game.

Games fall under this wonderful category known as fiction. ITS NOT REAL. A story can be however the hell the writers make it, it doesnt really matter, because at the end of the day, its still just a video game. Movies depict assassinations all the time are they horrible for it too? I think “most ordinary, mature, non autistic” was the autistic thing really called for btw can differentiate these things and life and see it for purely what it is. FICTION.

I haven’t really enjoyed a Call Of Duty game since the 1st Modern Warfare but I’ll probably pick this one up around christmas or something when it gets cheap, but for now, I’m sticking to Left 4 Dead 2. At least there are no laggy servers.

And as far as the fiction idea, I mean, really. It’s a game.

Plus, I thought some of the other Call of Duty’s were far more tasteless than this. I mean, who remembers the airport mission from Modern Warfare 2?

And less and less people play Call of Duty for the singleplayer, too.

@Russell_D_SpacePoet maybe the virginal dweebs that created the game, like to fantasise about assassinating leaders who think universal health care and education are a good idea, who knows? anyways, kids still play these games cert. 18 or otherwise.

@mammal ohhh fun sweeping generalizations.

@Russell_D_SpacePoet its obviously not a kids game, that’s why its rated M. but parents let kids get it anyway because it’s JUST a game, thats it.

Russell_D_SpacePoet's avatar

@jballzz Point being? Like I said in a previous post, I have to question the parenting skills of someone who would let their underage kid play this game. So, should the game have not been made and distributed because there are crappy parents that don’t pay attention to what their kids do? No. If that logic held true, alcohol amongst other dangerous things would be illegal because they are not for kids but kids still get them.

@dverhey That is a VERY good point. That mission bugged me. I didn’t shoot one civilian the whole way through that one.

I love it. I just don’t like the servers sometimes. I went an entire day getting kicked out and connection interrupted in every game I was it. It was absolutely annoying, to say the least.
