Thoughts?

maybe a repost but is cod waw that much better than cod4 online or is it pretty much the same just different guns and maps? I have cod4 and would be upset if I bought waw and it was not alot better!

no absolutely not- to me and all the regulars i play with(cod4 for a lonnnggg time and now cod waw) its competely different. cod waw has its "perks" i guess you could say.. if you like unusually large maps, awful weapons, STUPID ASS TANKS, and always way too many people (regardless of how big the map is there can always be too many people), then youll like waw more, but cod4 still stands way above it when it comes to gameplay

EVERYONE is level 65 because of the 10000/9000/8000/etc... a kill maps, so theres no legit way of getting good guns. people jack up your health on the "hardcore" maps and make them the same as regular games.. co-op zombies and co-op campaign is pretty fun though

I guess everyone has an opinion on this and I am no different. I have played both and like WaW better. It will take some getting used to though. It is easier to kill and be killed. I am not sure what SY04 was meaning when he said "EVERYONE is level 65 because of the 10000/9000/8000/etc... a kill maps" The most kills in one game I have ever seen was around 150. It was on Dome, WaWs version of Shipment. It was nothing to see around the same number of kills on Shipment. Maybe he could clarify, I might be missing something?

My obsevations

I like the modern guns better in Cod4.
I like the maps in WaW better.
The game types are almost the same with exception of War in WaW.
More people on WaW so you stand a better chance of not being stuck in a match with a bunch of gold crosses like CoD4
I like the perks in WaW better.
More glitchers in WaW which pisses me off, especially when you get shot from under the map. They seem to be trying to fix some of this.

I probably missed some but this is just off the top of my head.

no thats not the number of kills- its the experience per kill. every few games i join are THOUSANDS of experience a kill, so you level up like crazy. i had to restart my guy cuz i accidentally joined one and got my level 12 guy to level 39 with like 10 kills...

my observation: I love COD4 btw

COD4:much better gameplay overall
Teams aren't always fairly balanced, but I like a challenge
Modern guns are great,red dot sights, gun attachments etc.
Maps are adequate in size for the amount of players
Detail was great when the game was new (still looks good to me)
Love the camos
Dislike random grenades but that has to do with the players

COD WAW: Nice maps, ambiance sounds.
I like some of the new perks like flak jacket, bigger clips and toss back.
I like how when you prestige you get an additional create a class.
I dislike tanks... no skill needed
This game seems more like a "campers" game and I'm more of a run n gun player so I dislike it in that aspect.
It also seems like the game spawns you into danger ALOT! which pisses me off

I haven't played CoD4 online, but, can attest to the fun factor of WaW. My roommate was big into both games, and like other people have said, the guns on 4 seem to be better. The guns on WaW have a lot of recoil so that can be annoying, but bursts seem to eliminate that. It only takes a few shots to kill someone anyway. Getting dogs is badass (7 kill streak), and the maps seem to be either really good or really bad for me at least. There are a couple that I consistently do well on and others that I consistently suck balls on.

ive only played cod4 online, but from what all my friends have said about cod WaW i wont even bother getting it at all. If you play in any sort of league, its garbage. Cod 4 is better in every way, well i will say WaW is pretty.

That is the problem, it all makes since now. PCs punkbuster kinda works for known hacks. No issues like that with PS3 or 360.

send me an invite peoples!

I prefer COD4 as I like those weapon types better and it seemed more of a sniper game to me as that's what I like to do, but this is hot right now so people are always always playing.

Like mentioned above I get spawned in a lot of danger zones, mainly playing Core matches and the dogs seem unfair to me.

When I first played WaW I was like aww this is kinda crappy because of the guns and the WWII era, but after months of playing I can't go back to COD4. I guess it kinda grows on you, plus it's different, I was getting bored with COD4. Xbox 360 peeps send me an Invite, I'm not a pro but I don't suck either, Xbox360 gamertag WICKED98SNAKE.
