moh has nothing on CoD. i played that game for the first few missions and it stunk. on the other hand, CoD was awsome. it was such a different experience compared to the moh series. the scripted ai maide it heaps better.

I liked MOH, and I liked the SP of CoD, both are great games. As for the CoD MP, I dont think its anything that great, I did enjoy MOH MP more, but Im too busy playing RavenShield in MP anyways

Thumbs up

The sound effects in CoD are WAY better than those in MoH. The graphics are much improved, along with the animation and AI. Playing MoH now, it feels sticky and completely stiff. The game is also far more intense, especially during the Russian levels. On hard difficulty the game is just as intense as it gets, without ebing a quickload fest.

I think many people are forgetting that this games uses the Quake 3 engine !!

Think about that for a second.
A four year old engine, thats still impressing users today.

I think the game is absolutely superb, and just soo atmospheric.
Who cares if everything is scripted, it's just done soo well.
The Russian Red Square level, is amazing. And makes MOH normandy beach landing, look like a summer outing in Blackpool.

The game also shows just how violent and horrific, the war was.

I love COD, and look forward to many addons.

I am unimpressed with COD-I liked MOHAA better-and the sound in COD isn't very good-MOHAA is better (especially gunshots).

I agree
i find Cod more interesting from Mohaa and it is more realistic in many ways

Anyway if you set the game graphics to EXTRA the graphics are way better from some other new games that i know. But a 256 mem graphic card is recommended

What utter rubbish.

The sound in COD is fantastic.
The sound of bullets, pinging off every surface, is fantastic.
The mortar 'incoming' sounds, then the explosion sounds, are incredible.
Then you have the aircraft roaring overhead, in the russian levels. Plus the excellent tanks in the same levels.
The Russian level when you are trapped inside a crumbling building, with the machine gun bullets ripping the building apart. And the tank shells smashing walls apart, is fantastic.
Then the awesome effect when a shell lands too close to you, and your hearing goes for a few seconds, is nothing short of breathtaking. Name ONE game that comes close to that effect.

I think you should visit your local doctor, and tell him about your hearing problem.

Probably his sound card has a problem...and not his ears

I am already playing CoD for second time and the sounds are great with Eax 3 enabled

Not a problem with ears or my sound system.

I run a true hi-fi 6.1 system out of my fotissimo3 and I run EAX no problem.

I'm thinking it's you guys with the crappy Klipsh or Logitech MMC setups that are thinking the sound is so good in COD.
