I am going to respectfully disagree. I was very happy with the return to old school COD gameplay, like Capture the Flag. I found that the single player took me back to the first couple of COD's. I enjoyed the trip down memory lane, for I DO NOT get much enjoyment out of COD 4: Modern Warfare. The gameplay seems LESS chaotic to me, and the maps larger. There are fields of wheat to crawl through and lots of rubble. The guns are slower, generally as well. It is a great improvement on the Genre, leaving Day of Defeat way, way behind. The online gameplay is a reminder of the games that drew me into online gaming in the first place....COD (1) and BF1942. Solid, nostalgic and jungian images, archetypes fighting it out to the death, though this time the death is a little more gruesome.
