I have played it and I definately recommend downloading this demo! The team has done an excellent job of improving upon MOHAA. I was just telling my brother a minute ago that I thought this game might turn out to be my favorite FPS. Have fun.

Seems like you are always surrounded by squadmates and a lot of things happenning at once...very cool.
Doesn't seem like another fps shooter that 'you alone take on the entire german army' etc...

The developers have admitted that they took ideas from recent films. It all started with Band of Brothers and I am sure Enemy at the Gates is their role model for the Russian front.

I played it. If you liked MOHAA, you will be pleased. Personally, I didn't see anything that knocked me out. Prettier graphics, perhaps, but that's about it.

It seems to be heavily scripted, just like MOHAA. That's why I got bored with MOHAA very quickly. Each level plays out like a puzzle and feels too structured for me.

If a FPS developer can one day give us some real dynamic action, I might then be willing to give them some of my hard earned cash.../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

This is a fun demo - Somehow I get serious Frames Per Second with alot of graphics. It looks good, and probably the biggest enhancment to the game is the 'down-the-barrel' view or 'iron sight' view for shooting the guns. You don't have to, but you'll be much more accurate and I think it makes you feel more like your 'there' when you shoot like this.

I'm waiting for the MP demo now...but I'm sure I'll buy it - I love all first person shooters it seems like!

That was the second game I got when I first got a computer. (Janes WW II Fighters was first.) I wish that they would/could recode that game for todays better graphics. I-76 and Carmegeddon 2 were my favorite driving games. Now it's NFS Porsche Unleashed and Papyrus's NASCAR 2003.

But for the last 4 months it's been all IL-2.

I liked it, even though it is a little bit Hollywood. I thought the movements of the soldiers could have been a little better but oh well. Christ, talk about alot going on audio-wise, the sound effects were definitely not created with the elderly in mind. I didn't really see if there was any sort of communication with your squad-mates or not, but it doesn't seem like it due to the scripted nature of some of the events. Disappointing in some ways, pleasing in others, but definitely intense. I'll buy it, I just can't pass on a good WWII action game.

Yep Dl it this mornig went to bed played it for about 20 min befroe I left for work. Feels Like a cross between Mohaa, Deadly Dozen,and maybey B1942 but wasn't able to see if it included interaction with vehicle like 1942 does.

I like the way the AI teammates work together. They are no where as stupid as Mohaa was.


It did feel scripted though as pointed out above.

Of course the graphics where a real treat.


Wel worth the download I burned it off and passed it around tonight to my 56k'er buddies here at work.

Yeah, but its only short after you've played it thru once. If you play it for the very first time on max difficulty that little map seems like a metropolis. Nothing beats running out into that field and 4 seconds later getting cut down by the MG42s...

Then you take it alot more seriously.

MOHAA was fun until after the tank mission. The infinite enemy spawn was perfect in the submarine level and the nazi house, but it was way too much to go through in the factory and you have to go through the mustard gas stage perfectly to survive the last level of the game. After playing the demo and learning you won't be a lone wolf in this game, I hoped they won't throw some cruddy level design at the end of the game.

I like the Carbine, I went thru the entire level using only it and grenades on max difficulty the first time. The FG42 is pos in my opinion. Totally useless except at range.

Aviar and Freshness, if you would like to play a game where your squad mates act intelligently and dynamically then try Vietcong. Both your mates and the enemy act intelligently and act/react differently every time you play. They respond well (often verbally) to your commands unless they are under too heavy of fire, injured, or think another action may be more important.

Vietcong should have gotten more recognition than it did. I have played all types of games for a long time and Vietcong was/is really revolutionary in many ways. The squad/enemy AI, team interaction, and overall immersion is the best I have ever seen. The importance of using cover is also raised to a new standard. Anybody who is even remotely interested in this type of game should give this one a chance, I almost missed out but I'm glad I didn't. You'll be impressed from the opening scene until the end.

The M1 Garand is where the real money is, that gun just plain rules. The BAR is pretty beefy too. I love how you can look down the sights of the guns, it's done absolutely perfectly and adds so much to the immersion IMO, way cooler than "hip shooting" all the time. Now if I could just find a way to turn the crosshairs completely off...

The demo being heavily scripted turned me off, and I felt no real sense of danger.. considering your squad is endless. I sat there and shot squadmember after squadmember and they kept bringing up reinforcements for the dead guys.

Other than that it's full of fantastic action sequences and cool graphics and sounds.

Vietcong does this very well also, and yes, you can turn off the crosshairs completely. I played through the whole campaign like this on the most difficult (Vietnam) level, and it was tough but rewarding. There is just something cool about having to pull your gun up to take the shot accurately, shooting from the hip is almost like shooting blind. And it certainly adds to the immersion like you said. Now whenever I play another game I find myself wishing I could turn off the crosshair.

It looks and sounds very good, but I think the level was a bit too easy. I played it through on "hardened" level first time and finished it. It seems to much like Quake or Half Life for me. At first, in the open field, I was hit by a mortar blast. My health dropped bu 80%, I was lying on the ground, the only sound from my speakers was like ringing ears. The graphics became blurred and in slow motion. I thought, wow, this is amazing. Then, the effect wore off, I crawled up to the wall, saw two medical kits, shuffled over to them and I was fully healed and I thought, "oh, crap....it;s quake with WWII skins, just like MOHAA.

I'll still get it though.

Hidden and Dangerous 2 should be coming out soon. That might be the one to watch for. The first would have been brilliant if they cleaned up all the bugs.

There's no question the AI is what sets this game apart from MOH. Squadmates work like a team, covering each other, spreading out, taking cover, etc. Perhaps it's largely scripted behavior and not truely AI, but it FEELS real enough.

This has the makings of a great game!

Is it a moderately accurate simulation of combat, or
a Quake-type game like MOHAA?

The more accurate WW2 foot combat sims I've seen
so far seem to be Hidden and Dangerous (but unlikely
capacity to carry and swap between a large variety of
weapons, and some buggy AI, but not Quake-like) and
the Invasion 1944 modification for Operation Flashpoint.

Okay, I've played the demo six times - once on each difficulty, but three times on hardest. On hardest, the enemy like to throw you grenades back, on easiest they seem to walk around chanting "shoot me, shoot me, shoot me". /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

The AI is scripted firing positions, nothing wrong with that, it works well to keep the flow of the game. Team motion is much like in vietcong, in terms of vaulting over obstacles & suchlike, and the Iron sights are also similar.

It's no flashpoint, not even Ghost Recon in terms of a Sim. It's really more of a extra-cinematic Vietcong with more heavily scripted AI. The graphics are nice, and very smooth.

It's not too hard, and it's not too easy. If you run out into the open on hardest, you almost always get killed. One hit is about all you can take. It's not a sim, it's a cinematic action game, and it looks like a very good one.

And we will get the PPSh-41 Burp Gun! And run alongside T34s! First action game I've heard of to include some Eastern Front action!

I agree with Aviar. The game is just like MOHAA. Action is EXTREMELY LINEAL. At the end the game consists in run, stop, and kill a dozen of enemies behind a wall, in a way that reminds me that of classic arcades like Virtua Cop or Operation Wolf. This, or using the crazy aproach (tm) consisting in start running and firing like crazy into enemies position receiving a lot of bullets but killing them all. Realism is 0. How come someone with various bullet impacts in his legs could still run. I got direct machinegun impacts on the chest and was still kicking ***. lol what a crap.

Still, graphics are good, and that's why I played this demo for more than 30 minuts before uninstall.

I think the best thing about CoD is that when you get hit by a mortar or arty round, the world goes slo-mo, and sound just bleeps out in a low hum, like in AA when you get hit by a frag. Eventually, time speeds up, and the way they coded it it sounds really cool!

Also, unlike MoH, the characters seem to have weight on their shoulders. In MoH, they walk along, light as a feather, but in CoD the men step down and their legs lightly buckle under the pressure of their body. It's sweet.

Have to disagree with the crowd. Tried it & didnt like it. Too cartoon-ish & arcade-ish.

My choice in order would be

bf1942 ( ability to ride any vehicle )
Operation Flashpoint ( you have to think! )

Its only better than MOHAA because the enemy does not infinitely repawn.

It appears to be decent game, but the Demo is far too easy, even on Veteran setting.

The reason you start out with a Carbine vice the Garrand is due to your position as a paratrooper. If you look closely it even has the collapsable stock. Pretty cool though, I might buy it when it hits the shelves.

I'm mightily impressed with the graphics and sound that didn't cause any stutters or pauses at all. Very immersive feel.
Noted how easy it was to shoot a buddy in error, and, unlike MOHAA, you killed him. Have to admit that at the very end scene, I shot all my mates just to make sure I could.
Now you may think that's desperate, but I found I couldn't kill the team leader and spent some minutes wandering about picking up assorted weapons and firing them at him too. Got into a fit of giggles as he called out 'Ouch' Urgh' 'Aargh'but just wouldn't damn well die . . .

Heh. The FG-42 is hands down the best weapon in the demo. Obviously you neglected to try it out in full-auto mode. Press the "M" key and give it a whirl. It'll dump it's clip in like three quarters of a second.

Two huge improvements over MoH:AA that no one has mentioned:

First, your accuracy drops substantially when you move. That will totally change the way multiplayer battles are fought. I forsee less of a quake style frag-fest and something a little closer to real combat. The tremendous damage advantage rifles have over the full autos will help, too.

I forgot the second thing.

graphics great, gameplay good, sound awsome, but i guess they want to make it appealing to younger players so you have to make it where you can survive alot of mess ups. haha but where is the quake armor? lol.

The FG-42 *is* a heavy support weapon! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

But seriously, I have no idea how you could not find it useful in close. I'm pretty sure the only weapon with a higher rate of fire is the MG-42, which makes it pretty lethal in close, and it's got a scope for when they're not! Best gun at any range.

Well, I played all the way through it last night on difficult settings. I really did enjoy it. I noticed that the graphics were very smooth on my system, and I'd say that gameplay left me wanting another level. Good FPS, although I am much happier in the cockpit of one of 1C's fighters.

Hmm, I didn't really like the whole "movie with a mouse" gameplay, but it was less noticable then with MOHAA. My favorite things? The M-1 is actually pretty effective, and accurate, and, you aren't forced to carry certain weapons(i.e. 1903 sniper), and you can carry a far more realistic amount of weapons. Not sure if I'll fork out the money yet, but we'll see /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Overall, it seems to be quite an improvement over MOH.

I downloaded it as soon as it was released (thx again, for releasing it not just to subscribers, Fileplanet!!!)

I saw the pictures and read the stories. I tried to keep expectations low, however. The Quake-engine is a little outdated and it was quite nice to see what MOHAA did with it at that time.

But CoD blew me off my seat. The atmosphere is jaw-dropping. I seldomly ducked in front of my computer. evading the incoming tracers, but the sounds and graphics are a blast. Yet it runs on my machine with 1600x1200 with perfect settings at brilliant FPS.

I can't wait for the multiplayer-part. I heared there was another demo coming with MP? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Because it obviously runs perfectly even on slower machines, this will be an absolutely MP-hit!

If you didn't try it yet, do it ASAPs!!!



(hint: Don't duck behind wooden walls or feel save on wooden floors. The MG42s will shredder them to pieces.)

(Another hint: Pick up the other weapons. The K98 is a nearly one shot one kill weapon and the BAR is plain fun - but then, don't expect it to be a sniper MG like the one in MOHAA (jump off a 3 story building, shooting the sniper at the other end of the level his right ear off, while falling)
It's got LOTS of punch, but it's definately not a sniper rifle.)

It's a great demo. I give 60% to the sound effects and 40% to the graphics, imo the sound effects were just amazing.

Someone mentioned Operation Flashpoint, I still play that game occasionally, it's 2 years old but still a great game and good immersion with 5.1 sound.

If this game is realistic, it will have the following attributes NOT found in games like MOH:

1. You get to carry ONE primary weapon. (In MOH you can carry around an M1, a Thompson, an MP40, two sniper rifles, a Panzerschrek, a pistol, etc. all at the same time. How stupid.)

2. There are no jugs of "health" that will magically fix your gunshot wounds.

3. Getting shot should either kill you or seriously impair you ability to function.

4. Enemies don't need to be shot multiple times to kill them.


If this game doesn't have these elements, I won't buy it. I mean, why bother having a WWII theme if the action is so unrealistic? Battling monsters in a distant Galaxy is just about as realistic as MOH.

COD appears to be highly mod-able (is that a word?), so I have no doubt there will be some great realism mods that come out. In fact, there are many already available, less than a week after demo release. Just hope there aren't too many.

The AI seems really believable, emphasizing teamwork, so with all the arcadish features stripped away (huge loadouts, massive ammo, miracle health packs, etc.) this has the makings of a great game.
