The Call Of Duty series has been going now for some years now, and we can all remember our first game we got. I have not played the original but the second installment when I was at my friend's house quite some time ago. By the time Call Of Duty 3 came out, I bought it. And how I adored it...
There was something different about the game. Yes, we were still fighting the Axis, replaying through the Second World War, but then it felt different. I never realised that it was a different developer, and while many of us have an automatic reaction that if a different developer is making the game, they are making a more mediocre version. But this game was different and unique sharing good points with bad points. Every game has this.
So what made Call Of Duty a good game? By now some of you may still think it was not a great game, prehaps an "embrassment" to the franchise but here is a list of reasons why I loved it:
Now this all came from the first game I got. Then I got CoD:MW. Once again a different developer, a different game. It took a new twist, away from the WWII scene, which saddened me at first, but I quickly got adjusted with a great game. I admit IW are a great developer, just as much as I think Treyarch made a game just as good.
Moving on to CoD:WaW, I was glad to see us back in the muddy, desolate trenches and playing some awesome. This time we seen ourselves as an American fighting the Japanese for a lot of it. And here is more reasons why Treyarch made a great game.
I know I seem like a hypocrite, but people are already discussing how bad the installment will be. I even heard it in a cafe. To go in with such a negative idea is wrong. Give the game a chance when it comes out but stop thinking about the bad and hink about how we have a great installment just out, and try to be encouraged to see Treyarch will bring out a game just as good.
I could right so much more, but I probably have bored you more than some History lessons but I feel we are too ignorant to the developer.
So please show your appreciation to Treyarch, even if they don't make a game as good as IW, you have to admit they try and did well in their own right.
Thank you for your time...

I never played WaW just because after playing CoD2 which was a pretty good game, I played CoD3 and realized it was the worst first person shooter ever. Most boring cutscenes ever, tons of grenade spam, boring multiplayer, boring gameplay. I don't know why I even finished the game, but it was the worst thing I've ever done in my life.
Also I had had enough of WW2 games so I just stuck with MW.

I am of course talking about Poisson, a map I will never forget. It had a town centre and open spaces, vehicles and sniping points. It really did provide a great scenery, except for those poor cows. There was also the forest, where snipers thrived and Eder Dam, with sniping battles from all side and warfare in the dam.
My best online experiences to this day.

I agree with you.
WaW is pretty sweet. I'm not saying the SP was better than MWs, after all it's all down to personal taste isn't it? Bit I found it much more enjoyable than MWs.
From storming the streets in evication toshooting down the zeros, I thought it was awesome.
Onle however, was a flop in my opinion. Making one weapon, THE most pwerful and accurate weapon in the game, topped with stopping power, spoilt online, nad it took me FAR too long to level up.
On another note, I absolutely love the IW fanboys here (like the one above me).
One minute, it's BOO HOO WAW SUX TREYARCH MADE IT COD3 WAS *****.
Then it's, BOO HOO WWII IS BORING D
I'm sure if IW set the next COD game in the WWII era you wouldn't all be crying.
