Sorry, my phone won't allow me to post on comments. It is really surprising that a COD has that much content. Impressive. Glad your about done!

Well...not sure I would call it that much content.

To get my money's worth, I play though on every difficulty level. That means this is my forth (and final) play-through.

It is a different experience on the harder difficulty levels. I don't think I really understood the second to last level until this last play-through.

At the last checkpoint you are assaulting a building, and eventually trigger a set-piece. On the easier difficulties, it is really easy to just run up close, take cover, and occasionally pot shot some enemies. On the hardest difficulty, I finally understood the need for the sniper rifle and rocket launcher you can find laying around, and the different cover available. That stuff just wasn't needed before, and now I understand the way the level was meant to be played. I also figured out what exactly triggers the set piece (I think).

Same thing with the last level on the second hardest difficulty. There is a section on the parliament floor. I mostly just killed people on the easier difficulties. On the second hardest difficulty, I figured out exactly who to target to move the objectives along.

Granted, a lot of the harder difficult only stems from the waves of grenades that the enemies throw right on top of your head even if they shouldn't be able to see you. And their crazy accuracy and reaction speed. And the fact that they all seem to wear crazy good body armor. It is unbelievable the number of times I put a rifle bullet into someone's chest, and instead of acting like they got shot, they just take aim and near insta-kill me instead. So that part of the game just kind of sucks.

Completed Call of Duty: World at War level Heart of the Reich on Veteran.

Only the last level to go.

on 08 December 2015

Sweet! How many hours did you put into it?

on 08 December 2015

Without that Wii Channel that accumulated your game data, it is tough to know for sure. I think I was around 60 hours for Modern Warfare, but I played some multiplayer on that game. Maybe 40-50 hours?

on 11 December 2015

At the last checkpoint of the last level now. Almost done.

Season's greetings! I would like to personally invite you to join this year's PC Secret Santa event, thread link below. Please drop by and help us make this holiday season a bit more merry for everyone. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Thanks for the invite. I am going to pass, as my PC still sucks.

That's why we're doing GOG too; you can totally run a 90's or mid-2000's game!

on 30 November 2015

Hmm, I will think about it. My current rig is 10 years old with only a handful of upgrades. So mid-2000's would probably be my limit!

on 30 November 2015

That's all I ask! :-)
