Hey, Call Of Duty fans: Let's do a little comparison between "Joint Operations: Combined Arms" (specicially the "Combined Arms" version) and COD (any version), shall we?
What's the point of having a sniper rifle if the enemy is always so close to you that you can just throw a grenade (or a rock)? Such is the laughable world of COD and its sardine can maps. In Joint Ops, the maps have no borders - you can fly, ride, drive or run forever in any direction. You can hike up a mountain side and rain down some death with a sniper rifle from over 1,000 away like a real sniper actually can. That's 10 football fields end-to-end! But if COD is all you play, you have no clue what this is like. You probably think snipers shoot their targets from just across the street. In COD, that's all the CAN do.
How about the ability to have up to 200 players online in the same map in all out full-scale warfare? Oh, that's right - COD maxes out at 64. But then again, those sardine can maps only allow for that many. Get's a little crowded in there, doesn't it?
Tanks? APCs? Aircraft? Jeeps? Mounted guns (and even missiles) on all vehicles and aircraft? Dirt bikes? Yup - Joint Operations has them all, 100% pure user-controllable. COD? Nowhere to be found. Sorry, you're on foot, you brainless grunt. Snore.
And for all you vehicle haters and "knife and pistol only" screweballs - you can totally exclude any vehicles or weapons in Joint Ops if you want to. Total flexibility.
Weather: In Joint Ops, you can even control the weather and time of day. Want to fight at night in the rain with nightvision? No problem. Add some thunder and lightning for some truly engaging atmosphere. Air quality and haze factor? Make it slightly hazy, totally foggy or crystal clear, and to any degree. It's all up to you.
Parachuting out of a helo? And while your buddies cover you by manning the two miniguns? Yup, JO's got that too. Joint Operations is all about combat realism. But this is nowhere to be found in COD. The best COD has to offer is sliding down wussy ropes in single-player mode only, and even then, you'll never be the pilot. In COD, you're not even trusted to pilot or drive vehicles. How's that for insulting?
Armored vehicles like tanks and APCS, all different types, too, and you get to choose, drive and fully man them - Joint Ops is where its at, baby. But nowhere to be found in COD, other than immovable "eye candy" objects to hide behind while your enemies "prairie dog" you from the next mountainside over. Oh, wait, that would be Joint Ops. In COD, your enemies will be "prairie dogging" you from across the street because of the laughably claustrophobic maps. Insert incredulous scoffing here.
Calling your own artillery strikes by operating, aiming and firing the artillery yourself - Joint Ops has it. Nowhere to be found in COD. Matter of fact, you can't even call in artillery until you make a certain rank. Sucks to be you.
Hand-carry guided missles like Stingers and Javelins to use against enemy aircract and armored vehicles? Only in "Joint Ops: Combined Arms". You have absolutely no idea how deeply satisfying these weapons are to use, I cannot stress this enough. This apsect of the game lone is indescribably thrilling. In COD, you only get a taste of this, and only in single-player mode, and only when you are directed to do so. Imagine enjoying this in multi-player agaist all enemy vehicles. Stop drooling, you look like an idiot.
Joint Ops Combined Arms gameplay in general is so far more amazingly epic and huge than anything COD has to offer that it's like swatting a fly with a sledgehammer. Vast battlefields spanning MILES and MILES. Long-range weaponry. Extremely powerful armored tanks and vehicles, as well as incredibly devastating aircraft. And for every weapn and vehicle, there is an equal weapon to counter/destroy them by individual players. Javelins can destroy tanks. Stingers can destry helos. Tanks and Helos can destroy each other, etc. No vehicle or helo can dominate a game and can be taken out by handheld guided and unguided weapons. It's a totally even playing field with as many role, vehicle, weapons and fighting-style that anyone's gaming fetishes could ever demand. None of this entire paragraph can be stated about any version of COD. Zero contest whatsoever.
Sick of playing COD and only being able to experience cool things in single-player mode, only to discover that none of it exists in multi-player mode? Don't you feel ripped off? You should, especialyl since it's all the single-plyer stuff that Infinity Ward slaps on the package to sell it. Sick of playing "dumbed down" jousting matches of endless, boring "run and gun" because the developers have you locked into tiny little sardine can maps that don't allow for aircraft and vehicles? You should be. With games like Joint Operations Combined Arms being out for years, there is no excuse for these pathetic limitations and missing elements of true combat and warfare.
Map size, huge issue: imagine jumping on a dirt bike and going off into the distance and going "Evel Knievel" by jumping over hills for a while? You can do that in Joint Ops. COD? Not even. In COD, you can't even walk in any direction for more than a minute before bumping into a very unrelaistic map limit barrier. Gee, that's realistic, isn't it? If Infinity Ward wanted to go for all out realism, they should make your voice echo like you're running around inside a gymnasium - because you are. Whatta joke. If you think this is how gaming is supposed to be in a multi-processor, SLI-graphics world, then you've been smoking breakfast.
Rank and Weapons: Every map starts out with everyone at the same ground level in rank, and any rank awarded during gameplay is for status only and does nothign to change gameplay. There are no "old guard" elitist jerks with superior abilities and weapons to spoil the game. Every weapon available in Joint Operations Combined Arms is available to you during gameplay from the very start of every map, including the abiluty to roles and associated weapons as you see fit and unleash absolute hell. Oh, that's right, you play COD or BF2, and you can't do that because you have to make a certain rank before you're allowed to touch certain weapons, commands and features. Sorry to hear about the money you wasted.
Speaking of price: Joint Operations Combined Arms is only $20.
Though there are not nearly as many servers to jump on compared to COD, the gameplay alone is worth it. 1,000 servers of COD is still COD - it just ain't Joint Operations Combined Arms.
Come play Joint Operations Combined Arms (make sure it is the "Combined Arms" version, which includes the "Escalation" expansion pack), the game that STILL makes all versions of COD and Battlefield look like a joke. The graphics aren't as good, but still worthy of praise and a small price to pay for utterly amazing - and unparellelled - gameplay and features. You will not find another game that will allow you to do what you can do in this game. Not by a LONGSHOT. Speaking of longshots, Joint Operations allows artillery, tank, sniper and all other weapons fire at ranges 1,000 yards plus, often actually disappearing back into the haze of the atmosphere. You actually NEED scopes and binoculars in Joint Ops. Imagine that!
Nova Logic got this one right, and in a HUGE way. Nobody else has touched it since, including Nova Logic.
Come see what you've been missing. If you're going to be addicted to a PC game, this is the one.
Big maps!: It can lead to some walking if you wreck your bike or jeep, but some realism in that as well. After knowing the maps you rarely walk, unless you want to invade on foot. Sniper lovers can find places to hide and get kill after kill. Careful, the kill cam can give you away, or mislead the victim.
Level playing field: If you join today, you have the same weapons available as the number one player. No "you are stuck with crappy weapons until you prove yourself against vets with huge fire power" This trend has me urked. Why start a game unless you join in at the release? Hate that silly idea. If anything the vets should get the crappy weapons. Right?
Vehicles!: Bikes, jeeps, tanks, BTRs, APC's, multiple types of helicopters. The game is very dynamic. We have players that only roll in tanks, or choppers, or only in jeeps and and on foot. You can pack 20 people in a helo and attack bases with stingers and Jav,s. Then air drop the riflemen with medics with parachutes to take a base. Very team-based for vehicles with assist points awarded for driving your teammates to where the opponents or bases are. So much fun if you TS and change the plan to fit the situation.
Stats!: I love to see how I did for the week. How I did against other players. ect
Expansion packs: There have been multiple expansion packs released that are free to download. IC (international Conflict) and TIC (Total International conflict) that have weekly battles you can join. Advanced Warfare 2 pack that has a ton of co-op maps you can play by yourself, or with others. There are about 75 maps you can play on co-op, many of them have won awards. Best of all, they are free! Yep, all of them are free. There are even free programs available that you can use to make your own maps. Many of the used maps in the weekly International Conflict battles are user created! Fun stuff for developers.
The knife kill: You can, like in many games, knife kill your opponent. I love that. So up close and personal. :-)
This is an old game. A really old game as far as PC games go.
Graphics are not in par with the top new games. It has not personally distracted me from playing. I am not looking for total realism, just a fun game. You can max out settings have some pretty good graphics. Older PCs can spin up the game. You just need to find that "sweet spot" as far as graphics quality used. There are players in the UK with crappy computers that have their sweet spot figured out with their poor ping, and they rule in game!
Number of Players: The pool of players that regularly play is getting smaller. There is a 100 person server with only 30 players on sometimes. We have new players joining regularly that get hooked though. Numbers depend on the day. Not unusual to have 60+ players in on a week night. Had almost 80 in this last Sunday.
I have tried many of the new games. There is always something that turns me off. The "weapons level up" is a big one. The tiny maps are another. Nothing has me hooked like combined arms. Tough to play, but once you learn the maps (where opposing team will be spawning and going) learn the vehicles (how to fly and drive) and where to hide (you get points for just being in the enemy zone) the game is addictive. I play every chance I get, and check my stats every Monday morning. We have players leave to play other games, but many of them come back to play the game they love. Look for me! The acronym of my player name is PGP. When you kill me I will most likely say "ns" or "n1." Look forward to gaming with you. :-)
Well worth the price. I purchased three copies for my home network for myself and my friends to play. We have spent uncountable hours playing this game. It runs great on almost every system available. Well worth the purchase if you are into multi player military fighting games. It also has a good single player campaign. Put simply...Buy This Game!
