I know people on this forum aren't all that into FPS and PC games, but was anyone lucky to download the demo. I really liked it, looks great, and feels great. The controls took me a while to get used to, I kept tapping ctrl to crouch (Damn you Battlefield 2!). I thought the original was better,though that was one of my favorite FPS. Any thoughts?

The demo was too short but besides that the graphics was orgasmic.

Ya, I agree. I finished the mission, and I thought okay that was cool what's next? I've never seen a demo that short. Made me mad.

Its a demo, be happy its more then 1 min long. I felt it was too fast paced for my liking.

It definetly had a more arcadish feel. I wish the smoke grenades played a bigger role, I threw one in the path of turret and it hit me twice, I could've just saved the grenade and ran and still have the same health. I was expecting more considering it was 650MB.

Ya, I wonder how it is for the 360. I'm assuming the PC version will be better, but if you don't have a good PC the 360 is probably the way to go. I know the 360 has 32 multiplaye rwhile the PC has double that. Then again, it might be nice to get a really good launch title for the 360 like CoD2. I'll probably be impatient and just get it for the PC.

Get the PC verison :)

main reason I still play Call of Duty is the online multiplayer not to mention I really still am not great with console style FPS controls.

The game looks awesome!

I believe I said I was getting the PC version. I did download the demo... I don't see why people gripe about console controls, I think it's smooth and intuitive. Not as good as PC, but still good.

Actually if the leaked boxart for the 360 version is to be believed it supports up to 64 players too.

So you basically don't like WWII warfare...

I just played the demo now. Two things came to mind. Firstly, it'll run on my laptop without stuttering and even on lowish graphics it still looks pretty hot.

Secondly, just..wow.

I never played the original (and I don't know if having played the demo of COD2 has just ruined it for me) so I had no idea what to expect. To be honest I was expecting it to be, well, a lot less intense than that. The Medal of Honour beach landing scene barely raised my pulse, so imagine my surpise when I tried this. I loved the way the soldiers all kept talking to each other, in fact, the audio in general was just immense. I loved the sprays of particles everywhere giving things a really chaotic feel.

Suffice to say, I've got to get it when it comes out.

Sort off topic, but does anybody need a copy of COD 1 from PlayStation 2? I have a couple of copies I need to get rid off...

I don't know if it is going to be 64 player on the XBox. I haven't heard anything about that. And that cover looks a little too similiar to the United Offensive box art for me to actually believe that will be the box art.

I wasn't really saying that YOU should get it for PC, sorry for the mix up. I am decent with console style controls but in a multiplayer enviorment I find that a mouse and keyboard offer more precision. As far as the single player no problem :)

Ya, PC takes the cake control wise. More access, more precise, better reaction time, etc. etc. Just played the demo on hardest difficulty, it's about 2 hits and you're dead. Does anyone know how the health system is going to work? Is it just going to be regular old FPS or something strange like the demo? Did they scratch good ol' number and bar to make it more realistic like Call of the Cthulu (spelling?)?

I despised the first game's total lack of friendly AI (they were simply scripted actors that didn't actually do ANYTHING. They didn't shoot other enemies, they didn't help you, they just ran around to add atmosphere) and shit-ass-lazy level design (it's like the developers watched Enemy at the Gates and decided to base a level or two off of the movie, then Band of Brothers and decided to base some levels off of the depicted actions, etc). There were also some extremely painfully mindnumbingly boring missions where shit just respawned for a while and you just sat there and blew shit up. Over and over and over.

Seeing game companies just recreate Hollywood's vision of WWII is so damned annoying (Medal of Honor Spearhead was another blatant Band of Brothers clone. It didn't even TRY to hide it).

Everyone is saying CoD2 addresses most of the issues of the first game, so I may give it a whirl on PC. Doubt I'll check out the console version after the painful experience of playing Finest Hour (which managed to be worse than Breakthrough on the PC!).

Credit where it's due, multiplayer in Call of Duty was the shit. One of these days I'll have to reinstall United Offensive and get playing online again...good fun there :)

(on a tangent -> Soldier of Fortune 2 is another game that was completely worthless in the single player but had highly enjoyable multiplayer)

Here's an experience from playing the Russians that I didn't quite expect since this is a FPS afterall..... I was up in a building firing on the enemy and saw 3 soldiers down on the snowy road out of the corner of my eye. I fired my machine gun at them thinking they were the Germans and killed all 3 of them. BAM a screen pops up and says 'you are a traitor" mission failed. This game is super imersive to the point of not knowing who is where alot of the time and when you are not really paying close attention to detail everyone looks like the enemy! Try this game it's great.

It looks alright from what I saw on TV. Personally most of the war games today are too similar. I'd like to see an updated 1942 series game pop up or have you at some point as a tail gunner in an airplane. Maybe work as a spy or hitman in WW2 and shut down mines, factories, or blowing up bridges or buildings. I still think the original Wolfenstein kills most war games on how you start as a POW and fight to freedom. Now that's an awesome plot.

I think Im going to pick this game up for the Xbox after I get some more money for christmas. Not sure yet.

The game looks sweet, and I love war games. So why not?
