Pandering, Then Broken
on May 11, 2011
I usually don't get around to reviewing a game but this was so frustrating I had to write. I played the original COD 1 and 2 and really liked them. This one makes me follow guys around and treats me like a child. "Crouch" it says. "Throw a grenade now" it says. "Good job, you are awesome!" it says in one of several European accents.
But the real problem was half way through, which is as far as I got. On Mission 11 of 18, I'm behind some Scottish sniper telling me to follow him exactly... NOW! He takes off running and I follow him but we "get spotted." We get restarted over and over. I should mention that I'm damn good at games!
I check a walk through, even a video one, and it doesn't seem I'm doing anything differently than the video. I try about 10 more times and uninstall the game.
The game looks really good and has great motion capture (player animation). But it's all ruined by being treated like a child by the game and, what must be, a broken script in the middle mission.
