A New year, A New Call of Duty. That has been the case since 2005. This used to be fine because the quality of the games and the creatively was extremely high but recently Call of Duty Fatigue has really taken hold. I would say since Call of Duty Ghosts (2013/4 years) That the Franchise has struggled but this year is different because instead going farther in the future there going way back, Some would say to there roots. Now I haven't bought a Call of Duty NEW since Ghosts, so I wrote a list of how this New Old Dog can win me back.
1. Change the Name
Here's five titles for them to use ( Free of Charge)
Call of Duty 5
Call of Duty Band of Brothers (Rumored Co-Op Campaign)
Call of Duty Fight Against The Third Reich
Call of Duty The Greater War than One ( Maybe Knock on Battlefield?)
Call of Duty Not a Dumb Name
2. Do Something Truly New
A lots of the problems with Call of Duty is that it has spent so MUCH time in World War 2 it's hard to say what they can really explore. There going to have to give these to new Cod players WW2 classic experiences ( Normandy, Fall of Berlin) but at the same time add enough new to drag some of us who have played most of the CODS since 2. I wouldn't personally mind playing French resistance soldier, in Nazi occupied Paris it would almost have a Wolfenstein Feel to it.
3. If You don't do something than blow the roof of the house
4. Make Some Memorable Characters
Name One Character in the Last Five Call of Duty Games, I'll Wait
2015:/Blops 3/ None
2014:/ADV Warfare/ Ironside/ Kevin Spacey
2013:/ Riley The Dog
2012: Old Man Woods/Alex Mason's Kid
Now that we found that to be fruitless. It's time for Call of Duty to start making some memorable characters again.
5. Co-Op Campaign (Rumored)
Would this fix all of Call of Duty's Problems, No but it would definitely be a step in the right direction. A Couple of things to keep in mind about a Co-op campaign. Hopefully it isn't just shoehorned in to add an extra bullet point to the back of the box. Also I hope levels are bigger because last thing we need is two players trying to get through corridor, just getting stuck all of the time. Also a Split Screen campaign would be amazing, Star Wars Battlefront 2 is doing a split screen campaign , so there are no excuses this time COD!
6. Multiplayer:Stick to the Ground
7. Cool Side Mode
Sidemodes have been a staple of the franchise since 2008 and they used to be great! Whether it was Zombies on World at War or Specs Ops Missions on MW2. There used to be a lot of great/fun side activities. I don't think I want Zombies this time. I would rather have a Specs ops mode set in world war 2. Where you have to save hostages from Nazis or infiltrate a base or heck why not we kill Hitler this time. Also since this kind of rebootish game will zombie main guys be back or not, if they go the zombie route? I don't know what there going to do maybe something new but I doubt it!
8. Don't bank completely on Celebrities
I can tell you what actors played in the last three Call of Dutys but not who they played and that is a huge problem. Don't get me wrong they can have big actors in Call of Duty but recently the actors have over shadowed their characters. I think they need to go back in time where the character really didn't look a lot like who they were playing. Sutherland was Roebuck, where Kevin Spacey was Kevin Spacey. It would simply add that extra level of immersion. It would also let this new Call of Duty game characters stand on their own rather than a real life actor.
9. Be a Dude Not a Hero
In the last few games you have played as a complete god! not in the sense of even being a elite soldier (CIA,SAS) but just plain Rambo. Don't get wrong this isn't worst thing but it I would like it and I think the majority of people would like it if we went back to the Cod 2 or WAW where we were just privates in the army.
If you're going back anyway, why not have some old characters show up from time to time. It doesn't have to be a huge thing but a couple of cameos or nods would be appreciated because Call of Duty ora or history. COD does owe so much to it's world war 2 setting
Agree, Disagree? Are not going to buy Call of Duty WW2 regardless of what they do?
