    A good Vietnam era game. Though with all the shit they've released in the last decade I have almost no confidence in this franchise.

    I'm happy if they do a good job with it, I love WWII stuff. Been a while since we've had a good one. Hoping for a really great campaign.

    I'm actually more interested in where the franchise will go after this one now it's returned to its original era. It's done everything else that's worth while, Activision have milked it as far as it can go.

    between AW and IW the performance was really shit so i am hoping they focus on that more than the visuals.

    Cant wait for completely unsuitable theme song on reveal and mass dislikes on youtube regardless of what they post up.

    Be interesting to see how they do customisation which is such a big thing in CoD games now..

    also needs tanks from WaW & Dogs!

    Should also I dunno, make some actual engine updates! bf style destruction would be good.

    looks good potentially, but looks like they 'gamified scenes right out of Band of Brothers

    Waiting for the jetpack DLC.

    Edit: In all seriousness, I don't know what to expect. The fact that I haven't seen any media about this (any marketing or making of vids which usually show groundbreaking new tech/engine, etc) might mean that A) they've just copied and pasted assets, changed it with WWII skins and did a save project > WWII.kek. Or maybe I am wrong, and they put the time and effort into making this game and going back to their roots that made us oldies love gaming, and they're going to surprise the fuck out of us.

    Money talks, so I am leaning to the former.

    For a generation of kids this will be their first exposure to what call of duty once was. I'm sure most of them think blops or modern warfare were the first games.

    I'm pretty neutral on this one. Call of Duty 1 and particularly 2 are some of my favourite games of all time and really 'connected' me to our WW2 history and encouraged me to do a lot of reading about it. But given that the original teams from those games are no longer part of any of these franchises any more I will take a firm "wait and see" on this one.

    Why? Because it would a challenge? :lol:

    I thought the same about Mount and Blade: Napoleonic Wars, but then a couple of years back I played it on a customer's PC and got hooked. Yes it can slow down combat quite dramatically because you need to be careful with every shot you take as reload is so long, but I immensely enjoyed that challenge. It was a refreshing change from emptying clip after clip safe in the knowledge there's almost an endless supply of more ammo and you reload in no time at all.

    could they roll right back to the era before rifling ? You would never hit a damn thing :thumbup: Shitty guns in BF1 was amazing but pre-rifling? It would be ecstatic.
