I am about to get a game to play on the system I ordered from circuit city this morning, and it is a choice between cod2 and quake 4. I was hoping you guys could tell me which game I should get for:

1) Singleplayer?
2)multiplayer?
3)multiplayer (live)?

I would really appreciate this.......

Call of Duty 2's single player mode is much better than Quake 4's. It is more intense and more interesting. However, Call of Duty 2's multiplayer is nearly unplayable. It constantly drops games and is very laggy. Quake 4's multiplayer is very fun and frenetic on the other hand. Overall, I'd get Quake 4.

Feel free to add my on live when you get one of them, I've got both. biggrin.gif

Thank you for that fast reply, I was leaning towards quake 4 anyways mostly because I heard of the unplayable live for Call of Duty 2. I'll be sure to pick up quake 4 tomorrow won't be playing until the 25 though. We all know why...

My GT is CurlySpade if you want to add me.

how about adding Perfect dark zero into this to, rather than making a new thread. Consider that im a big fan of perfect dark 64, i really dont want a game that only has single player, i basicly stopped playing video games till i started playing online, Quake 4 verses pd0 multiplayer.

i own both quake4 and cod2. and i dont touch q4 since i got cod2. the single player on both are good. but cod2 is overall better (alot more depth, alot more intesne imo)

as for multiplayer, cod2 isnt as bad as people make it out to be. sure i get into the odd laggy game, but lately ive been host and it doesnt lag at all smile.gif

even when im not host, laggy games seem to only be about 1/4 of my time. if it lags quit and go into another.

i guarantee you youd enjoy cod2 more then q4. the controls are beter, and its just overall alot of fun

Well if you are a big fan of PerfectDark for the 64, I would not suggest PDZ.

I too am a big fan of the original and am pretty disappointed with the new vesion.

Perfect Dark Zero is to Perfect Dark as Super Mario 2 is to Super Mario 1.

Ehm..as long as it doesn't have Luigi and his gay jumping maneuver that took him 10 feet into the air, and slowly back down while wiggling his feet.

I rented Quake 4 for 5 days, dam game was boring. I thought I was in the past, nothing new or exciting here. Online was just like anyother FPS I played 5 years ago


COD2 awesome,, online, I have the odd lag, nothing more than you would except from any live game. I don't know why people are complaing. 8 players sucks, but I then go on xLink Kai (for free) and play via system link 12 people ROCKS

If I had to rank the Games it will be

1- Call of Duty 2

2 - PDz

3- Quake

Call of Duty is super intense

PDz Letdown from prior game

Quake nothing new to add from previous versions of Doom

PDZ single player is decent, but not great. The multiplayer is horrible. I jumped in to my first game where no one could figure out what was going on. If a game is not intuitive enough for gamers to play it without reading manuals or going through tutorials then IMO it is not a good game.

I listened to Major Nelson's podcast where they interviewed a guy from the PDZ team, and did you notice he said that he would go in to multiplayer matches and tell people how to work the game... who would ever figure out that you could have dedicated chat channels, or that you can plot a waypoint on the map?
