I got Farcry, and I freaking despise it. It's no different than the regular xbox version, and the graphics and effects are all the same. I knew that before buying it, but I had read that the online was great. Well, I've only been able to play 1 online round so far. Everytime I try, there aren't any games to connect to. and the round I did play, didn't impress me in the least. So...back to the store it goes....

So I'm considering PDZ, or perhaps CoD2. I hear PDZ's single player isn't all that great though, but the reviews say the online is awesome. Well, the reviews are also months old. So I worry about lack of people playing. I did have CoD2 at one time, and it was really good, but I figured, since I have it on PC, then I should get a different game. Now I'm considering getting it back as well.

Is the AI in PDZ really that bad? How's the controls? And is multiplayer populated well, and alot of fun?

PDZ single player is fun I dunno what people are refering to it seems alright at the begining but when you get used to it the games a blast. The multiplayer is fun, nothing beats playing on Old Town on Infection and hiding up in the mall or another base it reminds me of dawn of the dead.

You can expect many many different opinions in this thread.

since the question was asked, it was pathetic. dont ask why, I wont waste anymore typing on the matter.

Hated it. the AI was horrible. Maybe worth it for $25 if you're desperate for a 1st person shooter.

I liked MP alot but the SP mode is garbage. If you like LAN/Live play, give it a run. If you want a good story, wait for something better to come along.

PDZ is one of the best games I have ever played. FPS with no jumping, now that's realistic

GRAW has no jumping what are you trying to say?

PD0 is a blast online if you find a good group of people, but i HATE the AI they are either retarded or completely hard. You can be hitting them with an AK and they will just pop you with the falcon one shot in the head. or they just lame the mech things

The controls are what really hurt the game more than anything.
People can complain about the single player AI which doesn't matter in an online multiplayer game, but the controls do. And they are sluggish.

I rate the game an 8 out of 10 at best.
It's probably worth the $25 but I'd rent it before dropping $50 on it.
Pick up Ghost Recon Advance Warfighter instead (if you haven't bought it yet)....

laugh.gif Im confused bro

how can you rate it a 8 and say its only *probably* worth $25?

an 8 is worth full price...

or what I'd rate it...how about 8 minus 6? yeah thats my rating, and thats being nice beerchug.gif

next week I will be giving "Rating 101" for a small fee, have paypal ready!

GRAW is good too, but is a totally different game. GRAW is stratigic FPS and PDZ is not... IT all depends on your preference. IF yuo liek strategy then GRAW is your game, but I prefer Arcade so I like BF2 MC over GRAW

I thought the game was awesome. Multiplayer kicks ass on team deathmatch desert with snipers love.gif Alot of people hate it but I love it. Go rent the game and see for yourself. PDZ is alot better than BF2:MC combat though so if you liked BF2:MC you are going to love PDZ.

Your gonna constantly get responses like its "garbage" or "the multiplayer kicks ass" because the truth is the MULTIPLAYER KICKS ASS! those that say its garbage are ppl that probably didnt give the game or the mulitplayer a chance. They stuck with single player and just written off the game. Nothings wrong with that though cause theyre ppl that just dont care for MP online. With that being said, I DO. I play it alot and it feels different enough for my to keep trying to master it. Rent the game and try it urself.
