    So far I like it. I have only played 4 games and they were all Team death match. I haven't tried to other game modes yet. But surprisingly the guns are pretty good.

    My gamertag is TheOneBlade if anybody wants to meet up and play.

    Treyarch is the company behind COD 5. So they probably did COD 3. And i never played COD 3 online so i cant compare them.

    I like it. The new chances are cool. Like instead of a helicopter after a 7 kill streak, you get to call in the dogs and they go out and kill the enemies. But they can be killed. So far i only called in the dogs once and the game ended.

    Ill add some more differences later as i continue to play.

    Treyarch makes it. I didn't think COD 3 was that bad, it just was everyone was making a WWII shooter

    Differences Between COD 4 and COD 5 that i was noticed:

    -Last Stand was taken out
    -After a 5 kill streak an artillery strike is called
    -After a 7 kill streak you call in attack dogs
    -There are 4 choices of perks to choice from, the first three are the same idea as COD 4 but the fourth group is for vehicles only
    -There are vehicles to choose from in certain maps (i used the tank for a few minutes and kill 3 people at once, it was great)
    -No more claymores but there are mines instead
    -To prestige up you need to get to 65 instead of 55
    -There are 5 custom classes like in COD 4 but after you prestige up once you get a new custom class. More classes unlock after you prestige up. After you prestige up to 10 you can have 10 custom classes
    -There are some perks listed but no info is given yet so i can only guess what they do. I think when you reach level 64 there is a perk that radar is always turned on. Just a guess.
    -There is a capture the flag game mode
    -Of course there is a flamethrower. Cant use in beta.
    -A special grenade is a gas grenade that acts like a stun grenade but is makes your screen all blurry.

    So far this is all differences that i noticed worth listing.

    I found out while watching Xplay that while you play the story mode and co-op story mode your XP still adds up. So you can unlock stuff for multiplayer while rocking out the story mode. Hopefully the story is as good or better then COD4's. I might play the story more then one time now.

    I'm pretty sure this wont touch COD4. Which means COD4 will still be fine.

    after playing a bit last night, here are my impressions.

    Coolest addition: When in game enemies have red names (like most games), team mates have green (like most games) but people in your party have BLUE names, which makes it awesome to find out where your buddies are and super easy to team up. Probably not a big deal to people that only enter with full parties, but for me I normally only get one or two friends in a game at a time this is awesome.

    Worst Addition: The weapon balance right now is awful. The bolt action rifles take 2 shots to kill someone, so essentially everyone is using the MP 40 or Thompson. Also Juggarnaught made it's way into this game and is annoying as ever, making it like a 3 or 4 shot kill with the bolt action rifles...good luck trying to kill them if they are running.

    The game feels a lot like CoD4, and isn't nearly as good right now. If they fix the weapon balance I would say it could be almost as good...

    basically wait. Unless you were a member of the CoD4 website, then if you merge your membership you get VIP status and a code about 12 hours later.

    The way they ran the BETA for 4, everyone who was a member of the website eventually got a code, they just started with older members first.

    I thought it would be similar to CoD3 which had a great story, but was pretty dull online. However, the multiplayer videos looks a lot similar to CoD4. It just sucks that it's coming out a week after Resistance 2 & Gears 2. Why? It should be dropped in Spring 2009 at the earliest. It's way too early. My entire PSN list is still stuck on CoD4.

    I've been stuck on it for 6 months. I got away from it briefly when Madden came out but after a few weeks of not playing I popped it in. I'm right back to spending 20 hours a week playing the damn thing.

    As for COD5. I'm disappointed to hear Juggernaut made it's way back in. In my opinion, it should be gone. I should not have to put 10 rounds in a guy to kill him. The worst is when you blast him in the head a few times and he turns around and gets a kill.

    Sorry man, the extra code i got, i gave away already.

    Also the beta has upped the level cap to 24 so more guns and perks can be tried out. I think they also adjusted the playlists.

    its actually up to 44 now

    I agree with what ultra is saying about the bolt action rifles. But this game seems like it will be really solid, so dont even think about it being like COD3 because its not. Think of it more like a type of COD4 style game. I like how you can revive downed teammates with the revive perk and the maps all have a nice look to them. It looks really promising IMO.

    Also on G4 tv they said that when you beat the game you get a special game mode called zombie Nazi. Its a game where your squad tries to hold out hoards of zombies to see how many levels you can complete. One of the guys that worked with the game said that you can board up windows to keep them out of the house and that it goes on forever but its really hard and wouldn't matter because you wouldn't make it that far. COD WAW team only got to level 23. It reminds me of the game Left 4 dead that will be coming out in November as well.
