    Default Is Call of Duty ever going to revisit World War II?

    After watching Saving Private Ryan yesterday I became nostalgic for the older CoD games that took place during WW2.

    I have a copy of CoD3 still lying around, so I played it for a little while earlier this afternoon.

    It was fun to play to a point, but it was also a wakeup call as to how far the franchise has come with regards to graphics, gameplay, and lag because it was a decidedly mediocre experience. After realizing that, I immediately longed for a new CoD game that took the evolved improvements of the series (the aforementioned 3 areas) but went back to the classic environment of Allies vs. Nazis.

    I just now remembered that they did do this once, sort of, with CoD World at War, but alas I never owned that one and it was still somewhat dated compared to where the franchise is now. I'd like to see them take the template of MW3 or perhaps BO2 depending on how that turns out and then go back to that setting again. Plus that game was the Pacific theatre, not Europe, which is my favorite setting for these types of games.

    Does anybody agree or does anybody think this is likely to happen in the next couple of years? Perhaps around the time Black Ops 3 would theoretically come out?

    I like that time too, and I liked WW from what I remember.

    World at War is probably my favorite COD game of all time. If you are nostalgic for the period get a used copy. I don't know what the multiplayer is like this far along in the cycle, but if people are still playing it, it'd certainly be worth it and the single player is more in depth than current COD games which basically discount the mode altogether. Also, the Zombie mode was fantastic in my opinion.

    As to whether they will ever revisit it, my guess would be probably on the next system. On the current consoles, there have been so many WWII games that it probably wouldn't make much sense to do another.

    The thing is, World War II games got MASSIVELY overexposed for a long time from about 1999 (when Medal of Honor came out) until just a few years ago. It's going to be awhile before you start seeing them again.

    Hicks, World at War did have Europe missions, but from a Russian perspective. I enjoyed those a lot more than the Pacific theatre, but there wasn't enough to really recommend it.

    See, I usually just don't bother with the single player anymore; I had no idea.

    By the way, wouldn't you know it that the very first (time in years) CoD3 game I hopped into the other day had a TKer in it.

    I just hope they can provide a war in which a knife is more lethal than a nuclear bomb. Oh wait.

    I would just appreciate a CoD where shooting someone prevents them from sprinting directly towards you into melee range.

    Not only that but the speed in which you can melee is insane. There's been times where I've shot at someone and received no hitmarkers. That means you can remove a knife from its sheath, plunge it into a mans heart, and tea bag him quicker than it takes a bullet to travel.

    Yeah, lag sucks, lol. Its the reason I refuse to play Battlefield. I once lit up the back of a dudes head with a LMG at POINT BLANK RANGE, didn't even get a kill, he turns around and shoots me with a pistol.

    Fortunately lag is usually not on my end anymore; it's almost always the game or the other player(s). I have to say fiber optic has been my favorite type of Internet connection to game with to date. Very solid/fast, and that's with the cheapest download speed that was offered (15Mbps). Definitely recommend it. I've come a long way from when I first started playing online shooters on my PC circa 1998 using a 28k then later 56k modem. God that was terrible compared to now.

    56k? What the hell is that? (I've had cable internet for half my life now , just replaced the modem and router to be able to have DOCSIS 3.0 speeds and gigabit ethernet)
