To quote Eets: "Best war game eva!", and honestly, he was right. Linky (http://www.echonetwork.net/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1121&perpage=20&pagenumber=1)

The Sp was great (especially the russian missions) although at some missions you found yourself alone and trying to blow something up. Not quite the thrill I wanted but that went by as the next mission most likely would place me in a dangling car chase.

And as for the Mp, gametypes as "behind enenmy lines" and "search and destroy" will make this game a trully must get. The only downside on the mp i found was the jumping. Ive seen ppl jumpin around on the battlefield without getting hit decently while they shot one soldier after another. Maybe they need to make a patch where you wear out after jumpin too much, i donno. Ive also signed the punkbuster petition to ask activision to include punkbuster cause it would be a shame if this game would be left alone as off the cheaters.
But those are just minor glitches that can easily be fixed and shouldnt keep anyone from buying this game.

I've played the demo, and I must agree that it is the best war game EVER!

But I can't get the full version because my parents don't want it :(

Well as you see by the thread Pad linked too, I was highly pumped up to buy this game after playing the demo's, but then the reality of how short it was was thrust upon us and I was greatly disapointed and decided not to buy it. I have since changed my mind and decided that even though it is short, I'm sure I'll get my moneys worth with the MP, so, I'll be buying it after xmas. See you on the battlefield Groovster. ;)

I have it, and while it's certainly very good, it's by no means a BF1942 killer. But anywho, I do play it online, and I use the same name for everything online more or less (CapN'Colostomy>uB<, or LӧTM><) , so if you see me, give me a yell.

I'll be getting BF1942 next, so we'll have to hook up for that one as well.

Sounds good. Do yourself a favor if you do get BF1942, and go here www.desertcombat.com . It's a mod that makes all the vehicles and equipment in BF1942 modern, and there are tons of servers running it. Great fun.

Not much room to be a sniper in that server, and I don't care much for S&D. I like TDM.

Ha! My parents were the same way, but I convinced them. :D

I got an ally in my "responsible sister" and convinced her to play the demo, and she was hooked from the start. So, with her backing my requests for a game that is rated with blood (even though it's more of a hit detection) I swayed my parents into not caring anymore. Hurray ;)

Call of Duty?

Got it.
Played it.
Loved it.
Shelved it.

Now a certain little game called KOTOR is ruining my life ;)

Seriously though, COD is a damn good game. I'm in favour of short games as long as the quality is amazing all the way through. On that front, COD delivers beyond expectations. Nothing makes you feel more like you're in the middle of a proper battle. This game comes "The One Recommended". Have yet to try it online, but I'm sure it'll be a blast when I do - probably not as good as SP since there will be know scripted goodness, but fun all the same :)

Well, I beat it earlier. The Soviets get to do ALL the cool stuff. And the Enemy at the Gates type intro to Stalingrad was badass.

I bought it for my husband for Christmas. It was $29.99 on an After Thanksgiving sale. Luckily I know someone who works for Best Buy!! Its regular like 49.99.

Anyways. I checked all the reviews and it got rated very high. I'm sure he'll really like it :)

Wow, you got away 20 bucks cheaper than I did. Congrats! I'm sure he'll like it too. Can't wait for some custom multiplayer maps. The ones out now consist of alot of cqb, which makes it hard to be a sniper. I still manage to kill more than I die, (I got my first double kill, one shot two kills, the first night I played online) but I like the big wide open sniping type maps like you get in the Delta Force series a little better.

So how was MP like in Call of Duty? I dont have it. :(

I only have the SP Dawnville demo

CapNColostomy
12-01-2003, 08:04 AM
Eh, it's pretty much like any other multiplayer game out there. It has it's ups and downs. I'm noticing an increasing trend in "bunnyhopping" which I don't care much for. Not because they're any harder for me to hit with a sniper rifle, but just because people look like jackasses doing it. But it's really pretty fun if you like these sort of games. I've always liked military style fps's (except that piece of crap Counter Strike ;) ) , so it's right up my alley.

WOW:eek: And I thought I was getting a deal at $42.99!

Anyways, I am sure he will like it. The thing that makes this game so fun, is that it is easy to follow along and operate. Unlike alot of FPS games, your not having to spend hours on end looking for pick up items and hidden doors. Plus, you always have the other members of your platoon with you, and they actually help you out, providing cover while you blow up tanks and anti air-craft guns. You-ll be blown away by the graphics. The actual game play is really quite cinimatic. I really felt like I was in the crap, when I saw my platoon dragging other wounded soldiers to safety. It's also very hard to put this game down, even though it autosaves at several places, you still won't wanna quit! :D

I have not played online yet, I am holding out for some buddies to go on the servers with. I'm sure it will be fun! :p

How about those sound effects, man? They're some of the best I've heard. It ALWAYS sounds like there's a damn war going on everywhere. My wife's constantly screaming over my speakers "TURN THAT DOWN!!!!"

I run my PC through a home theater system. Can you imagine? :p

The headset just doesn't do me any justice on this one. :)

*jealous of home theatre system...I run my pc through spliced wires into a stereo, so it sounds better than the factory speakers, but is NOT a home theater system by any stretch.

How are you coming along on single player? Made it to Stalingrad yet? If so have you got to: Drive the tanks? Those were fun.

I just got CoD yesterday, it was awesome!

But is there a way to change the shadows? Because there arent any shadows.

CapNColostomy

Sorry and thanks, leXX. And is that how it's done? [spoiler]? Not trying to be a smartass, I really just don't know how, since I rarely know things before someone else does and have never tried using them.

And Crow, I'm not 100% positive, but I seem to remember there being a shadow on/off option in options under video. But since that's the most obvious place to look, I'm probably wrong.

to use spoiler tags

you write this without the *

I hope that helps some....


This game sounds great - I'll have plenty of fun watching him play it.

I too am guilty of the spoilers, I just figured only a few of us were even looking at this thread. I knew better, I am sorry. I'll use spoiler tags too.

Again, sorry leXX. :(

Sounds great, the only thing is I don't get home from work until around 11:00 pm central time this weekend. And it'll be forever until my days off rotate back into a weekend off. But if you're up that late this weekend, I'm game.
