I was really looking forward to this game. I'm on the 9th mission (out of a total 14), and here's what I've experienced thus far: 1. My friendly A.I. teammates "pop out and in" of the enviornments and sometimes "airwalk" to objective areas above ground (instead of using stairs). 2. The friendly A.I. teammates stand in the way all the time and are some of the dumbest fighters I've ever seen in a game. This has lead to many unnecessary deaths. Nowhere near the quality of COD2. Also, why are three friendly soldiers standing directly in front of a single Nazi soldier unable to kill him? 3. Grenades seem to be rather ineffective. Enemy soldiers standing directly on top of them are, at times, not phased (much less killed) by them. 4. The sounds of the guns seems very sedated - sort of like how Doom 3's guns were. They lack the visceral punch of COD2. 5. Why are there so many exploding barrels everywhere and why don't enemy soliders get killed when one explodes next to them? 6. Why is my character unable to walk over the smallest objects on the ground? (e.g., small rocks, a piece of lumber, etc.). 7. Why is it that when I'm prone and being shot, my character is literally blown back a good 10 to 15 yards back instead of simply taking damage in the same spot? 8. There are no sounds when you pick up ammo or other items (other than guns). You don't know if you picked up any more ammo unless you happen to look at your ammo meter. 9. I've been killed multiple times when fighting in houses by guns sticking out of solid walls - sort of like how the flags sometimes stick out of walls on multiplayer capture the flag in COD2. Clearly a mistake. 10. There are major problems with the online capabilities for people utilizing routers. I've only been able to get into an online match twice out of 20 attempts. I was told by Activision that they are working on a patch which has something to do with the game not working correctly with routers with firewalls built into them. I really don't mean to be pessimistic, but compared to COD2, this game is a major disappointment. Unless the multiplayer is improved after the patch, I'll be trading in my copy very soon.
