Holy Shit this has really badly aged...

I just played a couple online game, and even tough i manage to perform very well in some of them, i can't bare the slowmotioness of that game... I remember back when the second game was released... how much of a major improvement i felt it was to be able to run...

The character walk so slow... like REEEEAAAAALLLLY slow... the aiming and all still decent tough(only it feel a bit weird to aim with the joystick instead of the left trigger) but yeah, the way the character seem to be in slow mo will probably be the reason why i won't play a ton of this game even tough there is people. Too bad, i don't even have my lieutenant second class yet...

Also i was reminded how shitty the spawns where in that game... yeah its like GOW3 i know, but in GOW i dunno, its faster pace and you can push them back easily.

Here even tough the match ended in a draw(said we won, but it was 23/23) at some point i spawned only to be shot in the back in the church (my spawn) The guy was camping there. Once i knew i was able to kill him on respawn and manage to kill 3-4 guys that where entering the church... but this is when you understand we can complain all we want on COD spawns... damn there better done than in this...

Anyway old game i know, its free so well :P i remember i had a good time back then on it, especially doing terroriste hunts, probably the only game ever i prefered the coop mode to the VS... lol

My only issue has been the awful controls. I don't remember them being as randomly placed back when the game first came out, but other than that I don't think it's aged THAT poorly. I wish Vegas 2 was free so I could compare, but I remember that being quite a bit more fun, mainly because I didn't need to go through the hardest difficulty carrying a shield (which makes movement even friggin slower).

Its really how the game is paced... as soon as you are in a corner surrounded, you can't escape since they have plenty of time to shoot you, and you can't melee, wich also kinda screw things up when somebody is close to you, it end up in a random shooting fest... hoping to down him before he does...

Second game at least let you run, wich helped a lot. Control where still a bit clunky, cause it was never meant to be played too arcade style, instead more cover style and all, but still it felt a lot smoother. If you compare COD4 that came about the same time, outside the annoying cheaters/hackers online, the game still feel very smooth both online and offline.

Graphics are a bit aged as well, but this is not very important to me, its really about the controls like you said.

BTW why your name is in purple? Are a member of the staff?

You can always remove armor from your chest, arms, shoulders, and legs to increase your mobility and be able to move around faster. It's basically the same thing as sprinting except you're more prone to gunfire.

I tried both and to be honest i never saw that much of a difference, not enough to make me feel like "oh cool, im moving faster" and the armor and all make my character look way better

I just think this game lacks a running button, wich they corrected with the second game. Of course R6 will never be as arcade as COD or anything and i accept that and i like that style too. But i was just pointing out this game is dated in term of MP. The machanics shows it, and the way the MP is made, especially TDM with the ridiculous static spawns.

In any case, for a free game and the time be that it get dead again online(wich will surely not take long, wth the release of GTA and the other games soon) its ok to play a bit of it. I doubt tough i could bare getting a hight rank...

I remember i did most of it in Vegas 2 by doing team leader, wich is not the same thing as the VIP, and it paid a lot of XP. no static spawns and it was kinda fun. Terrorist Hunt also gave you XP for every kill... in this one you fail you loose everything. I remember how much TH we did on Villa and Import/Export , good stuff

I loved doing the campus in this one, but damn it annoyed me to fail on the last 2 or 3 terrorist and loose everything.

Wait 5 mins to be able to play... even if its a NO STATS player match(i should be able to JIP and play immediately)

Match end... host turn the game into attack and defend... wow, what a time waste...

Yeah, the game has aged terribly. Also, as I play the game on Realistic again, I recall how fucking abysmal the checkpoints were. Doing Dante's Casino, start the level, and I get through two wide open areas, start rappelling, get killed because my incompetent, worthless AI teammates won't shoot anyone that I target, and then I have to replay the entire thing. Such a fucking joke.
