COD 5 for the Wii...
« on: March 05, 2011, 12:05:45 AM »
A while back when I first got the Wii I picked up a few games I wanted to try.  One of them was Call of Duty 5.  I've been an avid FPS player on the PC since Castle Wolfenstein and DOOM came out and played COD 1/2/3 for years, so I was looking forward to trying it out on a console.

Well, I don't know how it plays on the XBox, but it totally blew on the Wii.  Worst FPS experience I've ever had.  After about a 4 hour trial I was ready to pitch it, but I put it on the shelf for a couple months.  Finally got it out to give it another chance.  That one lasted about 15 minutes, then I gave the game away.

There wasn't much I liked about the game, but one of the worst things was an extremely long cutscene at the beginning that you couldn't bypass.  I just couldn't play the game on the Wii.  Blame the console, the controller, or my ability, but if was totally frustrating.  There was absolutely nothing enjoyable about the game for me.

I've heard there were people that liked it, and even did well playing it, but I wasn't one of them.  Anybody else try it?  And if so, what did you think?

Well, the best Xbox FPS is CoD: Modern Warfare 2. The best FPS IOP for the Wii is Goldeneye 007. I'm a level 53 out of 56 and I run and gun with the Sniper. If you pick it up, you will have to play me. And I hear that Conduit 2 is pretty good, but is alot like HALO, if you like that.

tJ and I have been talking about both GoldenEye and Conduit.  I don't have either, after the CoD experience I didn't try any other FPS, but I think I'll be picking up both of the above to try out.  I really miss multiplayer FPS nights...

Hey theJude, what level are you on Goldeneye, and what do you do. I.e. do you camp, run and gun or something else.
