Call of Duty WWII
« on: March 30, 2018, 10:54:05 am »
Though it is a slight improvement over recent installments like Black Ops 3 and Infinite Warfare, it's still a lower tier CoD game that's a bit disappointing.  The graphics are good, but the game play is pretty redundant and the weapons are kind of shitty for the most part.

I actually have this on my laptop right now. My brother bought me a new one as a New Year's present, alongside one for himself. Then, he installed this, and new DOOM, to test out the graphics. The latter is obviously great (though I haven't played much of the campaign after checking out every map in Arcade mode). This, though, I played for like 30 minutes and never touched again. I just can't stand this kind of "cinematic gameplay" somehow; not sure if it's entirely rational but there it is.

Perhaps I might like it more if I give it another chance, similar to how I hated Life is Strange at first, but liked it quite a lot on the whole. Still, I doubt this'll be happening any time soon. I would be more likely to give a second chance to, say, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. I actually was very interested in that game back when it came out nearly five years ago. I saw all the heavily mixed reception, but still felt like giving it a chance sometime. Then, I saw it was being given away, jumped at the chance... and its reputation was way too justified. I didn't expect great story, but I also didn't expect something this rote and uninspired from the creators of Bioshock 2. I would have probably enjoyed the gameplay...if the whole thing didn't slow down or outright crash pretty regularly, on the same machine that easily handles DOOM on Ultra settings.

The new DOOM was absolutely fantastic.  Doom and Wolfenstein are the games that really got me into FPS back in the mid-90s.  Doom 1 and 2 are still 2 of the best shooter games of all-time imo.  Final Doom was still pretty good, but a definite drop-off from the first two.  Doom 3 that came out a few years ago was complete and total ass - I couldn't even get through it because it was so shitty and I was having such a lousy time playing it.  This DOOM absolutely redeemed itself, and I hope they sequel it but keep everything basically the same.

Yeah, this CoD game is a big disappointment given the positive ratings it had garnered on the heels of two terrible entries in the last few years.  But I saw some saying this gets it back to Modern Warfare or Black Ops level, which just isn't remotely true.  I'll get through it because I'm not having a bad time with it...I'm just disappointed because I expected so much more.  Hopefully Battlefield 1 (which should be here within the week) is better.

Our most famous game critic at the time, Nomad of ag.ru/Riot Pixels, got a ton of hate for saying Doom 3 was disappointing. He didn't even give it that bad of a score (70%), though he did say it would have been 50% if it wasn't for then-great graphics and the hope modders will turn it into a real game.

As for 2016 Doom, pretty much the only thing I would like to see improved is to see some environmental damage. I don't ask for it to go all the way, Red Faction-style, where explosives can literally collapse walls, as that would interfere too much with its amazing level design. However, it would be nice if it at least the small stuff, like the lights, plot-irrelevant consoles, etc. got destroyed or damaged when you shoot at them. It's particularly weird that you tear "live" zombies apart in all kind of ways, but the corpses lying around are wholly indestructible: shoot them in the head, and nothing happens. Other than that, it's practically perfect for what it is.

What's funny is 70% was being ultra-generous.  That was a 3/10 game right there.  First off, it wasn't played like a DOOM game at all.  90% of the game was played in the dark.  The monsters were redundant.  The weapons weren't all that cool and they barely gave any ammo for them on the upper levels of difficulty.  The graphics were really good, though you couldn't notice them as much in the dark. 

Yeah, I could see where the environmental damage needs some improvement.  I think the overall feel of the game and backdrop - especially when you get to Hell.  The demonic voice is outstanding and the blood and bodies on the fringes of the screen are super-impressive.  I really, really hope that the sequel essentially takes the exact same game and just creates new maps with an updated story.  But, yeah, if they made it so you EVERYTHING on the screen is at least somewhat destructible, that would be pretty cool.
