I have finally got to play COD Vanguard, and wow it’s hard work to stick with it. On the positive it’s a beautiful looking game, and the play mechanics are typical COD, which in my eyes are the best FPS gameplay.
But the story and the characters are just awful. As an Australian, the token Aussie is as cringe as fuck. Looks like they pulled up every possible trope and stereotype they could think of. Only thing missing is some Crocodile Dundee catch phrases. The cast of characters is unbelievable, and maybe that’s where things go south for me. When dealing with WW2, I have a historical expectation of it. If it’s a game like COD Infinate Warfare, or Zombies, or Metro Exodus etc, I’m not bothered by who the characters are, or if it’s a bit cringe, I just play it for the fun. With historical wars like WW2 etc,.I want it to be historically accurate as I want to be immersed in what WW2 was really like. They really fucked up that experience for me.
