COD 4 Better?? I Don't Think So

Everyone is saying that COD4 is better!!?? Sure COD4 does have faster, better, more advanced weapons and aiming, but I think WAW was a more raw, purely intense, action packed game!

More enemies for sure are in WAW, Enemies everywhere! and not to mention that they seem more intelligent....even if you think that they aren't, you still have the crazy ones that run straight at you, seemingly with a grenade in each hand. Longer more intense battles prolonged game play. The trenches are your friend. Weapons are, and do seem about 70 years old and some are more accurate than others. This just made the game more challenging, and not any less fun. Not only does there seem to be a balance of the variety of missions, but also the variety of actions and goals in the missions themselves. I'm trying not to spoil the ---- out of this game, but I really wish I could write about all of the awesome specific things that happen in the game because there are more of them than in COD4.

I guess the game could be summarized by explaining that WAW has more of the historical aspects of everything that has already happened. This may disappoint some people while it may excite others. So basically, if you like history then you will probably like this game more than COD4. If you are more focused on current or futuristic styles of games then you will probably not like this one as much as COD4. For me the historical aspect added a sense of urgency and necessity to win. (You know....don't be the guy that failed)

The technical aspects of the game were flawless as expected. NO SLOWDOWNS! Smooth and fluid even with all of the gunfire, explosions, and massive amounts of enemies. Graphics were also amazing as expected. The only stipulation with this game is if, for some reason you have never played any of the Call of Duty's, then you should probably print the controls diagram from Gamefly. The game just drops ya in there to do battle with limited on-screen prompts. But WHO CARES! I'm clickin' KEEP IT

everyone know the COD franchise was the greateest eer, i share the same ideas. The only thing missing is tht whenever a new map pack comes out and you dont have it, they have it in the original match making lobby, and since i rented it i had to go into lobby, go out cause i didnt hae the map packs and repeat this till a lobby was playing a non map pack game. They should make it so there are map packs designed so if u want to play the 2 map packs to to the 2nd map pack lobby, all in all it was a great game.

WOW!!! this game is sooooooo sick. I didn't think it would be better than Modern Warfare to be honest, but I was wrong, at least in my opinion. I think the controls are smoother than part 4 plus the blood and reactions when you kill is so much better. It is WW2 with better color and drama than part 3 and sure as heck better than Brothers In Arms by FAR. Dont listen to the bad reviews on this either. It is a must BUY. The graphics are insane and the last two levels are so intense. Down with the Japanese then on to the Nazis. Treyarch is fantastic and should do the next Call of Duty as well. This is by far the best WW2 game to ever grace a gaming console and really brings back to life the idea of reliving the most disastrous time in human history. 60,000,000 dead over all.Wheeeew, game on and HAIL the PS3!!!
