So.... what did y'all think?

Of course I'm stoked because I'mma fan boy, but they announced so much that I wasn't expecting. And Day Zero access? Damn, work (and my wife) is gonna hate me.

Below is the full reveal with Sledgehammer.

Ok, coming from a guy who is not a CoD fan boy I think some of the new concepts look interesting. That being said I don't think I will be buying it, at least not at release.

The halo jumping and cloaking doesn't bother me too much cause I am use to Tiitanfall which has it. I just hope it lives up to the hype and isn't a disappointment.

I go all the way back playing the first COD game but dam now this is coming from a COD fan boy WTF. is this halo or is it Titanfall this is not a cod game all of this flying jumping crap is just crazy.this is not a game that I will be picking up at all even if it was free.what's wrong with just running and gunning on the ground and not all of this flying like birds. I was just not happy with the new look I guess I will hold off until next year. when I can play a COD game with out all of this flying in the sky......

Cloak shouldnt be in there, I know it promotes camping because I see it all the time in Titanfall.
Otherwise this game looks amazing so far. Call of Duty had to do SOMETHING different to keep it fresh and this is that something. Game looks very fast paced and fun to me and the only thing I want to know is the damage. Do you die in one or two bullets or is it like Black Ops 2 and you can survive a few bullets? It is almost impossible to tell watching a video how fast you die in this game.

Ok, now that I've had time to rewatch everything again, here's my take on some of it. Again, this is just my opinion, but comments welcome. 

  • Booster Jumping:
  • I believe it was FrenchFry or Infamous (?) that mentioned that SH was working on this game around the same time frame as Titanfall, so not sure who's idea it was first. Whatever, I don't mind it. Yeah it's a bit too futuristic for me but if we are going to have the whole "Feels like Call of Duty" feeling, it should be integrated perfectly in the controls, making it not to be so much of a factor for me. This will somewhat eliminate jump shots because we'll be boosting. Should be fun.


  • Cloaking:
  • Again, this doesn't bother me. To me, the battery life on our backpacks is so short that this isn't worth fussing about. Plus, even with the extended battery perk, who's to say that everyone will be using cloak? There are so many more options and from the gameplay I've seen, you do produce a small blur when you are cloaked (much like Titanfall).


  • Pick 13:
  • LOOOOVE this!! SH gave much props to Treyarch during the presentation but that's because they are using so much from BLOPS2, and that's what the players wanted so that's we got. I like the idea of not having to have scorestreaks (and BTW I love that scorestreaks are returning) and adding more perks if you want. Kinda gives you the "Specialist" killstreak permanently by adding more perks, if you so do that.


  • No Ghosts 2-shots kills?:
  • Maybe some will notice, and maybe some won't but from the real gameplay that I saw (not the premade version on the reveal), it looked like you will be able to turn on an enemy. Add that you can boost, and it will make it even more difficult for them to kill you and in turn allowing you to make the kill. Check out some of CharlieIntel's videos and you should be able to spot some shot counts. I'm watching the presentation again with commentary from Pucket and Fwiz and they both said that the health is like BLOPS2. So that's good news.


So for me, this is a must-buy. SH isn't focused on fish that swim by you in the campaign like IW was, and it legitimately looks good. You can tell that this is built for nextgen. There is so much we will have to learn but so much will be familiar.

And I agree with FrenchFry that SH had to do something different because reviewers kept saying the same thing after every COD: "Same game just with different maps". And although I don't mind that, I welcome the new challenge.

So flame away.  I'm sure I'll have many more comments but these are the things that stood out the most. Oh and Day Zero!!!!!!!!!! Yeah I like that.

Um where to begin. Still COD name but thats it.

Rocket packs, boosting, and cloaking.. Um where and who had it before Titan even was thought of???? Oh yeah Halo!!

Not a fresh idea at all, but while this is my first impression I will reserve my final opinion untill i have played it for a week or two.

I think a new FPS might come out for people that have been turned off by this futuristic stuff and want a more traditional call of duty type game.
I have only been able to watch one of the real gameplay videos that Charlie Intel posted up, but it is hard to tell how quick they are dying and they are on a perfect LAN connection in the same room so it isnt really the same. I will have to look up those two guys videos because I definitely want to hear what some of the big youtubers that have played have to say about the game.

I have no issues with the jumping, boosting, cloaking. It depends on how they balance the gameplay. Too early to say how that will be based on videos. Will go look at Charlie Intel videos, thanks for that info. I think if they are going to use the potential of next gen they have to start thinking in 4 dimensional game play.

I'm not sure what I think about it... I was totally excited about Titanfall when it came out, and the fun really wore off quickly for me. I would almost rather have picked up Ghosts, but I'm not made of money.

The COD character setup looks really good to me - considering I haven't played COD since MW3, there looks like a ton of specialization options. I'm hoping to focus on the strengths I used to play well with and be able to ignore the stuff I don't care about.

Not sure if I'll like the jump/boost feature for me, but I know I'll need to be able to kill people using it. I'll give it a shot to see how it feels but it seems like it would play more like a Halo game, but faster-paced. On the fence here - I'll just play it and make up my mind later.

I'm not a fan of the cloak function, but I like the radar and shield versions I saw on some of the youtube vids I watched. I also liked the new game mode featured in the Pucket and Fwiz video.

I've already paid this off, and I'm still willing to give it a chance instead of requesting a refund. I can say I'm excited about it, but don't want to set my expectations too high... rather be pleasantly surprised. If I don't like it, I'll still have Destiny and BF4.

Was watching the multiplayer modes and one of them reminds me of grifball from halo. The uplink game. The game looks like a cross of halo, crysis, and titanfall all in one. As long as I can survive longer than in ghosts, I am all ready to go. Have my atlas pro version all paid off. Decided against the new assassins creed unity. No time between this, Destiny, and halo collection lol

Looks amazing, the chances of them making "the same ol' cod" are pretty slim. The masses have spoken and people want something different. I personally hope they balance all the abilities well and the game play good because it looks frickin awesome.
