At first when i got it (release date) i thought it was a great game, however, after reaching level 40, it said it couldn't connect to the online service, and once it did reconnect, my level was reset, which really pee'd me off, cause it took me alot of killing with bolt actions to get that far. I have also realized that pretty much every SMG, has little to no recoil at all, which makes them a sprayers dream, unlike in cod4, where some people see you spawn and wait until you at least shoot before firing at you, people actually sit and wait for people to spawn and kill instantly, i really liked the game for about the first week, until people started joining with insane levels (level 55 on 1st or 2nd prestige)
i googled around and found out somebody has cracked the mpdata like cod4, meaning people can get high levels without even trying. it annoys me that the reload glitch from cod4 is still in cod5.. lets hope at least treyarch will get rid of it.. because its hardly realistic.. and put some recoil on the more powerful weapons...
however, the game is fun with a few friends.. but playing in public is pretty much ruined if you ask me, it needs a fair few patches before its at least playable in public, well, thats my opinion, i just really don't see the fun in somebody spamming there way to the top with recoiless smg/mg, there is just no skill involved, in my introduction thread, i posted a screenshot, it was to make a point, i said in the server that smg's and mg's hardly need any skill, some of them didn't like my comment, and told me to use one (which was my first time using one) i mowed them down one by one, got around a 24 kills streak at one stage, and won the round.
i have actually found myself playing cod4 more than it.. one day i may play cod5 more, but not until a fair few patches have been released. lets hope IW at least release cod6 more playable.. anyways, please nobody take this post into offence, this is just my opinion on the game (which i had high hopes for).. anyways, whats your thoughts?
