Treyarch, they have made numerous types of games most of which have been good.


Infinity Ward are an overated one trick pony.

Treyarch's best rated game gets 85%, and that was using IW's tech. IW's worst game is 88% (CoD 2 on 360). I would much prefer one amazing game every 2 years rather than 2 average games a year

So now mid 80's would be considered average?  *sigh* Glad people aren't as picky as you I suppose.

That is their best game ever, and was just really similar to MW, but worse

Okay but that still doesn't make the game average.

WaW is good, the rest of their games are average at best

Well I personally enjoy CoD3 more than WaW, but I'm in the few and far between section in that regard.  What about Spider-Man 2? I found that to be quite awesome as well.

Guess what, what IW thinks players want and what players actually do want are different things also.


The co-op modes on WaW always have a crapload of people playing them...but of course all those people in fact dislike the co-op, they play it because they hate it.


They have the evidence right there that people like it, R2 also had many complaints when it was removed. BUT IW KNOW BETTER.


Facts and memory should do the trick.

When MW was released, CoD3 disapperead from official LiveActivity Charts. Today, almost 24 month after its release and in spite of a "sequel", MW is still here, almost at the same level as WaW.

In spite of reduced installed base at the time, MW sold more units on PS3 and X360 than WaW, and I seriously doubt WaW will catch up next year.

But just remember the games themselves.

2 years later, ppl still remember clearly many incredible moments from MW : night cargo attack, Helico flight over the city, the whole Chernobyl level, the saving the pilot/nuclear explosion/dying part, the C130 bombing, the slow-mo final, the plane rush...

Frankly, from WaW (and I finish it), beside the night attack at the begining and the very ending at the top of the parlement, there is nothing else.  The rest was "been here, done that". The "parlement charge" was especially pathetic, with just 12 guys rushing (the whole russian forces !) and after that, only 1 or 2 guys coming to replace deads. Sorry, but the Volga River mission of CoD 1 was far more intense and impressive 6 years ago.

It's not that Treyarch are bad. They can do decent games (especially when they get the right "tools" from IW in fact), but they lack the talent of Infinity Ward.

Yeah, they have made some "good" games, but they are mostly average, you don't associate them with AAA games like you do IW. I did really enjoy their CoDs, but IW's are just 10x better



^Yea true while I do enjoy all the CoD games, CoD2 will remain the best (4's overrated lol) and remain my fav one.

So I assume Haze is your favourite game of all time.

If not don't come back to this thread.

 

This don't even make sense.  DOn't come back to this thread until you can type somethign that does.

That you must get on :P.  Although many people might not like the 8 player max. MP, I found it to be just as fun as any other.

I doubt I'll have time for MP, but I'll certainly play through the single player, I'll try veteran too

 this is what you'll be doing at some parts when doing veteran, you've been warned.  The only quarrel I have with SP is the not-the-sharpest-nails-in-the-box friendly AI.
