Campaign on Veteran is driving me nuts. Those vehicle sections are the worst because they die too fast.

Yeah, it's one of the worst COD campaigns I've played so far. The medkit requirement does not work with how COD handles health loss, so on Veteran you take two-three shots and you are dead. If you run out of medkits you are basically screwed. Not to mention the ridiculous aim the enemy has on you and the camera shake when you take a hit. To top it off the friendly AI is dumb as sh**.

Eesh, waiting for my copy next week but I dont like the sound of that. MoH AA and COD2 D-day missions are still top class set pieces, how can they fuck up this legacy.

Sounds like I might be playing through the campaign this weekend and selling it on Monday. I only bought it for the campaign.

Yeah the sense of scale is so messed up. It feels like the whole war is condensed down to the size of a basketball court. The point du hoc mp map is the same way. Its so tiny yet filled with so much crap.

It's a run and gun game now, with no real sense of strategy or teamwork.

We haven't unlocked the s mines yet, but if people start running through them unscathed like they do with claymores, that will be it for me.

i maybe misundertand, but you say it is awesome they forbid party chat (so, no teamwork play), yet you are disappointed the round length doesn't allow teamwork ?

Hrm thoughts so far: average singleplayer. Biggest issue is other games have done it better and i dont feel the fear and tension of some of tbe more significant moments..

Zombies is fun though.

First campaign mission was boring considering what they had to work with. Should've been much more epic. They should have went full Band of Brothers and had some boot camp training mission beforehand to make you care about a few of the characters you were in the first mission with. Their short attempt at making you care about a few characters before the mission was kind of lame.

I couldn't play MP last night due to the servers being down. I get home from work today and I can play a bit but the game messes up after my first match and it locks me into playing a second game when I just wanted to go back to the menu. I play the second game and the game freezes on the post game menu. Had to force quit the game and log back in. Not a great start for me so far. I love the whole boots on the ground change but the time to kill seems way too fast but I'll roll with it for now and I'll see how it goes. But maybe I'm just getting too old or I've been playing too much Destiny since that seems like the TTK is getting faster every year.

Zombies seemed relatively fun in the one local match I did just to test it out. I'll have to try that online.

It's really buggy right now. The menus/system is also kind of confusing

Yeah, coming from that, it's a huge downgrade. I only played the past few cod games very briefly, but I thought those sounded a lot better than this one. Might have been my memory playing tricks, though

It's a joke that you have to quit the game and load it up again if you want to get out of a MP match. I want to play MP but I don't want to be stuck playing in the same lobby over and over. I want to go back and update my loadout. Guess I'll have to do zombies until they fix this.

The game is completely fucked up on the Xbox. Load times are terrible, error messages, the screens in between a match just freeze and donít show me unlocks and if Iím even getting my XP then I had to quit a match and take a loss just to get out of a lobby, challenges and Mail not working, nobody in the headquarters with me and plenty more issues but Iíll stop there..... fix this shit!

Figured Iíd try zombies since regular MP is not working and now I canít even get in a match, error code 4128 multiple times, about to give up for the night. This needs to be fixed tomorrow, no kids and the wife working, rare Saturday to myself and I want to relax and play this for a chunk of the day.

I tried the zombie game and it was kind of weird. Like, there wasn't much of any hit feedback when I was shooting them. Did they drop that boarding up windows stuff? I only tried once before and I remember that being a big part of it

Also, where is the menu that explains what the different division perks are? I saw a picture online, but I can't find it in the game

Isn't working for me either. I get that this is pathetically the norm for a lot of games these days, but it's not leaving a good impression in the slightest.

and to me it's the Best WWII game i've played, and best Call of Duty title by far.
Loved every minute of it.
And,
the Graphics are awesome, Colours, Tone, Grit and Sound (minus some bug where some gun sounds weren't registering)


Played on PS4 Pro and on a 4K TV.

They need to sort out the results screen, I thought it was just the beta but it's here in the final version, who thought it was good idea to have a result screen hang for 5 minutes while it loads headquarters was OK needs the sack.
Headquarters should have a load screen not have the game load it after every match

To be fair, the WWII sub Reddit and official CoD message board don't have much activity either. It will no doubt be one of the best selling games this year, but it's not the monster it once was.

I don't get all the complaining. First CoD since MW3 for me and I'm liking it.

Campaign was alright, nothing special but still better than what Battlefield does. It feels like they tried with the characters to go for what Band of Brothers did but a 5hr campaign with some cutscenes in between won't do it.

Zombies seems funs, cant wait to play that with a friend. Feels og again.

MP is finally going back to what made cod so good. No bullshit just you and your gun and the occassional killstreak.

Aside from the loading problems (thanks, HQ) I really like the game. The only thing I donít like is that killstreaks are way too expensive for what they actually do. UAV being at 500 makes no sense either. Many killstreaks are very underwhelming as well, especially with how much they cost. Paratroopers are basically just bots that are on the recruit difficulty. What a waste of a streak lol.
