Do EA seriously think that they can compete with Activision? (MoH Vs CoD)

    As usual, too little, too late. MoH was enjoyable, but far too linear and way too short! Can we officially say that CoD has the military FPS crown? I know Black Ops isnt even here yet, but if WaW and MW2 is anything to go by, its going to be far superior to MoH.

    Linear and short is the trademarks of CoD as well, so I'd say no one deserves the FPS crown!

    Linear and short are going to stick with us for some time more. Even crysis 2 is going down this path. And you know why...

    Anyone who claims that MW2 isn't linear, short, predictable and very consolised to the point where PC features are deliberately left out is in a dream world.

    Plus don't count out a game which is unreleased - call of duty was heavily stagnated and didn't get the time of day until COD4 came out, and this MOH could be EA's COD4.

    Still I agree - they all suck at the moment so I give the crown to TF2 for safe keeping until a truly good military FPS comes out.

    LOL, but a good story goes a long way. By the end of MoH, I didnt really give a shit about the characters, but with MW2, I did.

    CoD titles are about 7 hours long, this MoH was about 4 hours. A 7 hour long SP campaign plus a great MP, is fine by me. But a 4 hour SP campaign and a crappy MP isnt.

    Im talking about the console version btw ;)

    Tbh, I'm not defending MOH here, but its just worth stating that in COD MW2, I didn't care a bit about the characters. I did in MW though, in the 2nd though, they opted too much for the cheap cheesy hollywood twist, which ended up in nearly everyone I was interested in, dead. :toast: Its like they took bits from every cheap B movie blockbuster and said, here, we want a fight in the white house. We want the General to be a collaborator with the ruskies (I forgot the story though, maybe I'm wrong here). We want a classic run & gun in the favellas. :laugh:
    That said, whilst MW2 was forgettable, MW was great, even though it was still highly scripted. It seems they cared back then. Anyways, it was good for 2007, not good anymore.

    My money would still go with EA, just for the Battlefield series.

    With the first game I kinda cared about some of the guys, but not in the second game. And the plot itself isn't very brillant either. It works and that's about it. YOu do have a point about the lenght of the game tho. MP I can't really say anything about as I'm not into that kind of thing.

    Remember, most of the team that made COD (Infinity Ward) have jumped ship.

    If the MP on MoH was good, it wouldnt be too bad, but it isnt :(

    Black Ops is Treyarchs baby ;)

    I think you mean 'waste' ;) Were talking about games here, not diets :D

    CoD: Black Ops will not be able to touch Bad Company 2 in multiplayer. Thats just the sad fact.

    Because Im limited to the console versions, the CoD MP suits me better than the BC2 MP. But thats just me personally. PC wise, BC2 MP offers more variety.

    Heh, I haven't played any COD games since COD:MW. I guess it shows. XD

    The new MOH only interests me a little and COD doesn't interest me at all. Both true most likely because I don't play MP in them. Pathetic little campaign + MP = pathetic little game to me. :(

    Console or PC it doesn't matter. The CoD engine cannot do the things Frostbyte can do. They have turned CoD into the Chucky Cheese of first person shooters.

    CoD - World At War was great, good SP and great MP (well I thought so anyway) :D

    LOL, I dont know much about Chucky Cheese cos Im British :roll:

    I do judge a game mainly on the SP, maybe Im just a loner lol and the Battlefied Bad Company 2 SP was pretty boring :(

    One thing I will admit, no MP game compares to the original Battlefield 2 on the PC.

    CoD originally comes from the team that came from MoH, the originally incarnation of the series. Reviews of the new MoH are lukewarm. Not a must play. Black Ops looks promising though.

    I will put my money on MOH just because it's more realistic and less sci-fiction (MW2) ;).

    Call the crown what you like it. COD just happened to head to consoles before Battlefield did, and thats what got them the fanbase, anyone I know who switched to actually trying Bad Company 2 ended up liking it more.

    Yep ! I bought MoH though and it isn't bad. About what I expected. Got to love itwhen folks don't like something they say it is a total waste of money and imply for everyone. Thank goodness we can make our own decisions and not have to abide by there opinions. Reminds me of movie critics. If you are bored with what you are playing and have an extra $60 go for it. :toast:
