I for some reason crave a WW2 shooter and hopped on Medal of Honor: Airborn and turned on the PS2 and played Medal Of Honor" Vanguard and also played some World at War. Am i the only one who agrees these modern shooters are getting boring? :3

lol the slurp in your thread title took me to a different place......

No I was never into these kind of games. I thought the modern war shooters were made to counter the fact that everyone was getting bored of WW2 shooters.
Eh I'm the last one to talk about it I played one and it felt like I played them all.

Modern shooters and to an extent Sci-Fi shooters to me, for the most part, are garbage

Stuff like Battlefield, Call of Duty (onwards from 3), Bodycount, Bulletstorm, Crysis, etc. are awful

I prefer shooters like Bioshock, Doom 1 and 2(not 3, I don't even consider it a Doom game), Call of Duty 2 (The last good Call of Duty), Left 4 Dead to an extent and the like.

I like WWII over "now".

Something that's satisfying when ramming that bolt back before firing your next shot, or not being able to fire 600 rounds per minute with every gun except the sniper rifle and pistol.

They just been the most popular things for so long that it's getting a little stale

2 was Big Red 1, IIRC. It was damned awesome. 3 was my favorite though.

YES! Unfortunately the series went downhill from there.

I own the 10th anniversary pack, but I've never gotten around to playing Allied Assault, Operation Spearhead, Breakthrough, or Pacific Assault. From my understanding, aren't these the same games that made up Frontline on the PS2?
Damned amazing game.

The only gripe I have with Airborne, outside of unskippable cutscenes, is the fact that there's really no depth to the actual missions. You get your briefing, jump from a plane, and and blow up your objectives. That and I have to uninstall PhysX to install the game.

Frontline is kind of a spin off of MOHAA. It has some of the same levels, for instance Omaha Beach, but it also has levels that MOHAA doesn't and vice versa. MOHAA is the better game IMO though, because it's on PC, better graphics, gameplay etc.

So I take it that Call of Duty: World at War is just what this thread ordered?

That is the second worst WW2 shooter I've ever played, behind MoH Airborne.

The only WWII shooter I have is MoH Airborne, and Origin won't even let me play it. At least you guys can scratch your itch...

Got around to installing it, and yeah, it's a lot different than Frontline. I'm enjoying it. Just now cleared out the bunkers at Omaha Beach.

I swear, the PS2 version, which was heavily gimped compared to the PS3 and 360 version from what I heard, is probably the single worst CoD I have ever played.

The singleplayer is great. I think Stephen Spielberg created the MoH franchise, or at least helped with MOHAA. If you've ever seen Saving Private Ryan you will definitely see similarities, I won't spoil anything though :). The multiplayer is the best part of the game though, I was hooked for years as a kid. Pretty much all the maps are great, and the expansion packs are equally awesome. You get to play as other factions in them, like the Russians. I could write a book about how much I love this game, lol.

good times. now i gotta go find a copy of the game again. :o

I miss Call of Duty, and Call of Duty UO </3 The new CoD (and Battlefield) games make baby unicorns cry.
