Call of Duty is a first-person shooter video game developed by Infinity Ward and published by Activision. It is the first installment in the Call of Duty franchise,[2] released on October 29, 2003, for Microsoft Windows. The game simulates infantry and combined arms warfare of World War II using a modified version of the id Tech 3 engine. Much of its theme and gameplay is similar to the Medal of Honor series; however, Call of Duty showcases multiple viewpoints staged in the British, American, and Soviet theaters of World War II.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is the fourth installment of the main series, and was developed by Infinity Ward. It is the first game in the series not to be set during World War II, but set in the modern day. The game was released for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo DS, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on November 7, 2007. Download and retail versions for Mac OS X were released by Aspyr in September 2008. As of May 2009, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare has sold over 13 million copies.[8]

Some games have been developed by Gray Matter Interactive, Nokia, Exakt Entertainment, Spark Unlimited, Amaze Entertainment, n-Space, Aspyr, Rebellion Developments, Ideaworks Game Studio, and nStigate Games. The games use a variety of engines, including the id Tech 3, the Treyarch NGL, and the IW engine.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Multiplayer raises the bar, delivering the most thrilling experience yet with a focus on tactical, grounded gameplay and player choice. The game offers a new level of online action across a variety of new weaponry, maps and modes. For the first time, Multiplayer serves as the center of the game’s narrative as players explore each Specialist’s role and unique playstyles. With the return of the Pick 10 Create-a-Class system and a new Gear category, gameplay becomes more customizable than ever, giving players choice on how to equip their Specialist. Combined with the ability to unlock devastating Scorestreaks, players will have the opportunity to be powerful on their own or unstoppable as a team.
Call of Duty was developed by Infinity Ward, a new studio formed in 2002 originally consisting of 21 employees, many of whom were project lead developers of the successful Medal of Honor: Allied Assault released the same year. Led by Chief Creative Officer Vince Zampella, development began in April 2002, and the team grew to 27 members by May 2003. Using an enhanced version of the id Tech 3 game engine developed for Quake III Arena and an in-house skeletal animation system called "Ares", Infinity Ward set out to develop a new World War II-era video game that, unlike many of its predecessors, placed more emphasis on squad-based play with intelligent assistance from teammates during large-scale battles. The team also extensively researched weapons, artillery, and vehicles from World War II to enhance the authenticity of animation and sounds used throughout the game.[4]
I bought this game when i found out it had Bots for offline multiplayer. I dont have GOLD membership, that means i cant play games online. So bots was my only option for multiplayer. This game has 2 modes available for bots TD & DM. The bots play well, very competitive AI. I can hop in to play anytime & have fun. Worth picking up because it will keep you entertained.
I'll start off with this because it's short and it's my personal opinion on their choice in cosmetics. I'm happy to say the prosthetic limb is gone along with anything that doesn't really fit the WW2 mold, but they've still kept in some of the rugged appearances to give players a unique look. I can't really fault this because it is a video game and many players like having a way to distinguish themselves on the battlefield. The base cosmetics each have a "camo" you can unlock by completing challenges and you don't buy them. There are cosmetics you can purchase in store, but the looks you can unlock hail from the days of Red Tiger camo in CoD Modern Warfare 1 when it was an achievement. There's not a ton to choose from at the moment, but I imagine as the game continues on, we'll get more of a wardrobe.
For the first time in the series, clips from online gameplay can be recorded. Some specific features that have been removed from the PC version of Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 return, such as lean,[27] mod tools, the developer console[28] and dedicated servers.[29] Dedicated servers are exclusively provided by Game Servers.[30] Steam is the exclusive platform for Black Ops on PC, and the game is protected by Valve Anti-Cheat.[31]
Spotting. I don't know the full mechanics how this works, but I've seen very few markers above enemy's heads for their location. Muzzle flare, bullets, map markers and direct line of sight have been my spotting methods. People may be able to have better takes on the spotting systems (like Recon players) than I will, but overall I don't feel like the enemy has constant knowledge of where I am. Someone please comment how spotting works and I'll edit it into this section here with your name referenced.

Battlefield is a series of first-person shooter video games that started out on Microsoft Windows and OS X with Battlefield 1942, which was released in 2002.

The Battlefield series has been played by more than 50 million players worldwide as of 2012,[1] across 11 games and 12 expansion packs released since its inception in 2002.
Edit: Apparently people misinterpret the way I mentioned the patches being slow. I admit that I should've worded it a bit clearer to avoid this confusion but I'll try to make sense of it now. I'm fine with content and balance changes coming biweekly or even monthly, it's the fact that they group all the fixes into these patches as well that is a terrible decision in my opinion. A much better system would be to split fixes from these larger patches entirely, and make these fixes come at a greater pace. The amount of bugs and blatant oversights that could be fixed in a short amount of time are numerous in this game and it would do the game an immense amount of good to fix these issues sooner (I'm talking about stuff like barely getting any currency at 50 or changing assignments whilst not having to quit etc.).

I'm not even gonna speak about how unfinished BF5 is with it missing multiple core gameplay modes and features. From a design perspective it feels like every single release since BF4 has been a massive reduction in everything battlefield. From 6 mans squads to 5 man squads and now 4 man squads to the extreme and I mean extreme lack of vehicles and down sized maps focused on purely infantry combat we even have a lack of weaponry and customization that previous games did far better I don't consider you giving me the ability to unlock a golden pasted shit weapon good customization. I don't ever feel the epicness of a match starting where everyone gets in vehicles and drives off to war all I get now is a 2 or 3 vehicles driving by. We don't even have a watered down version of naval warfare at all a feature that existed in both 1942 and BF2 games over 10 years old.... The UI is easily the worst UI i've seen in a modern video game and nothing even compares to the slow and anti user friendliness of it.
Computer Games Magazine named Call of Duty the sixth-best computer game of 2003, and the editors wrote, "This game ups the ante in the WWII shooter arena, and makes everything that has come before it seem as outdated as France's army."[26] The editors of Computer Gaming World presented Call of Duty with their 2003 "Shooter of the Year" award. They remarked, "Call of Duty won this category without a shot fired—there simply was no debate."[27] It was also nominated for "Best Game" at the 2004 Game Developers Choice Awards. While it did not receive that award, it did win Infinity Ward the "Rookie Studio of the Year". Chuck Russom was also presented with the "Excellence in Audio" award for his work on the game.[28]
Call of Duty: Black Ops has received generally positive reviews from critics. GameSpot awarded it 9.0 out of ten and wrote "Call of Duty: Black Ops bears the series' standard superbly, delivering an engrossing campaign and exciting competitive multiplayer."[106] Edge magazine was less positive, giving it a 7/10, writing that "As polished and pretty and fun as Black Ops often is, it feels more like a yearly update than a sequel [which] isn't distinct from its predecessors in any important way".[122] Several reviewers also complained that the game felt too much like a rail shooter, with PC Gamer branding it "barely interactive".[123][124][125][126]
Warfare is no longer limited to the trenches. Fights take place underwater, in outer space and even on jagged rock faces. Diverse missions and battlefields have you rappelling down buildings, floating in zero gravity and taking aim inside a helicopter. The diversity of gameplay keeps the action epic and redefines what it means to be a soldier in the field.

Same CoD Same problems, This is fundamentally still a Call of Duty game and as a result we get the same problems that have plagued the series for years. Spawn points they are as inconsistent as ever. Drop Shotting back and still annoying as ever and balancing can never get right they either nerf something to hard or buff it and even a month post launch its not fixed and will probably never be fixed as it is just a part of the Call of Duty engine so unless they get rid of it which they won’t there not going away it a free criticism of the franchise.

The American campaign begins with Private Martin, a newly enlisted member of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, completing basic training at Camp Toccoa in Georgia, United States, on August 10, 1942. Afterwards, the action shifts to June 6, 1944, with Martin forced to undertake a solo mission to establish a landing zone for soldiers participating in Operation Overlord. Under heavy fire, the paratroopers are scattered, leaving Martin in a mixed unit formed from various companies. The mission closes with Martin and his allies seizing a nearby town from German forces. In the second mission, Martin and his unit are sent to drive out the remaining Germans from Sainte-Mère-Église and disable several Flakpanzers (anti-aircraft tanks) as the events of June 6 begin (D-Day). A paratrooper is seen hanging from the town church. The third mission occurs later that morning, with U.S. forces fending off a German counterattack. The fourth mission has Martin, Pvt. Elder and Sgt. Moody driving from Sainte-Mère-Église to Sainte-Marie-du-Mont along highway N13 to deliver an important message, while fending off German assaults. The fifth mission, the Brécourt Manor Assault, occurs on the evening of June 6, with Martin's unit destroying German artillery positions attacking the landing force at Utah Beach. After the mission, Martin learns that his unit has been assigned to several secret missions. The first occurs in the sixth mission, with Martin participating in an attack on a secret German prison in the basement of a Bavarian manor to rescue two British officers, Captain Price and Major Ingram. He then learns from Price that Ingram had already been moved to a more secure POW camp for interrogation. Thus, the seventh mission has Martin, accompanied by Price, infiltrating the camp and rescuing Ingram in under ten minutes before the arrival of German reinforcements.
The NPD Group named Call of Duty the eighth-best-selling computer game of 2003.[6] It maintained this position on NPD's computer game sales rankings for the following year.[7] In the United States alone, Call of Duty sold 790,000 copies and earned $29.6 million by August 2006. At the time, this led Edge to declare it the country's 13th-best-selling computer game released since January 2000.[8] The game also received a "Silver" sales award from the Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association (ELSPA),[9] indicating sales of at least 100,000 copies in the United Kingdom.[10] Call of Duty ultimately sold 4.5 million copies worldwide by 2013.[11]

This is probably my favorite Call of Duty since Ghosts. I was never a huge fan of the futuristic flying jet packs and wall running of Advanced Warfare, Black Ops 3 and Infinite Warfare. WWII was refreshing in that regard, however, I really started to get burned out on WWII due to the really small maps, horrible rewards system and hokey costumes that you know never existed in the 1940s. Black Ops 4 is really refreshing. It's very fast paced and fluid. Even though there are no jet packs and wall running, nothing ever gets in your way. Getting around obstacles while shooting at the same time makes the game play super smooth. I really like the weapons (so far) and the graphics are really good. The user interface is a little confusing. I think video game companies in general could all benefit from having an actual UI designer on staff. As for the new Blackout game mode, maybe it's because I have never played any of those last man standing games like Fortnite, but I just don't do very well. It's like unless you get a decent gun within 15 seconds of landing on the ground, you're screwed. Also, the graphics in Blackout are terrible in comparison to normal multiplayer. I get it though, for a map that size they had to make compromises. Overall, I give Black Ops 4 a 9 out of 10.

Call of Duty® returns to its roots with Call of Duty®: WWII—a breathtaking experience that redefines World War II for a new gaming generation. Land in Normandy on D-Day and battle across Europe through iconic locations in history’s most monumental war. Experience classic Call of Duty combat, the bonds of camaraderie, and the unforgiving nature of war against a global power throwing the world into tyranny.

Secondarily, those complaining about it taking a long time for weapons to kill somebody obviously don't know what they are doing. I feel they are complaining primarily because of the MP trench gun which is the default gun on the assault class. This gun is intended to be used by getting very close to somebody and spraying them with it. It is not an accurate weapon nor was it back in WW1. Use corners and cover in order to move close on opponents and you shouldn't have an issue with the guns if you use them to their strengths. Either that or they are trying to take out enemies at a distance using iron sights and are too use to their high tech red dot sights. There are optical gun classes that allow having a more conventional sight picture if that's your style.
