I just got an Xbone a couple weeks ago. As I expected, the game plays a billion times better on Xbox than it does on PS4 (anyone who has both can agree). But as I started to enjoy the silky smooth gameplay, the ugly side of the game started to show more than it has in the last month or so.
Quickscoping is terribly OP. I'm sorry if you disagree, but it is. I think maybe 75% of the people on the forums would agree. 20% would say it isn't. And the other 5% would say that I can stop playing the game and I just suck. But come on, be honest here.. Do you really think it's fair to use the scope aim assist to get a one hit kill from across the map... Without aiming down sights? It was supposed to be removed on launch.. But I guess IW got scared of the 10 year olds that made death threats to Vonderhaar for "nerfing" snipers in BO2.
The hit detection is perfect for me now, and the game rarely lags. Which brings out how the health really works. I never thought the health was too low, or that it was unfair. But now that I have a game that actually works.. And the health is just way too low. In the MW series, you generally had low health with grenades and explosives doing high damage. Now, falling off the smallest ledge can instantly kill you.
Maps are terrible. It's not the size of the maps that's the problem. It's the layout. I understand changing up the 3-lane layout.. But was this the next best thing? To make every map like Aftermath and Downturn?
This isn't really anything to do with the actual game (well maybe..) than it does my atrocious luck. I've been playing Clan vs Clan. I figured, 4v4 on small(ish) maps, with all the BS taken out of the game, with everybody playing the objective. Well apparently I figured wrong. Every. Single. Game I've played since yesterday night has been terrible. I literally just got put on a team with 3 other kids who were definitely under the age of 12. And it's funny, because the enemy team is ALWAYS filled with MLG pros. Again, this may not have anything to do with the actual game (maybe some really bad matchmaking algorithm?). This might just be my realllyyyyyyyy bad luck. But it's still frustrating and it's something I wanted to say.
I really wanted to like this game. I still do kinda-sorta like it. But it's really boring. And it's really frustrating to always be put on teams with kids under the age of 12. Like I said before, the game runs perfectly. Rarely any lag, awesome hit detection. No frame rate drops. But the ugly parts of the game have really shown themselves, and it makes me not want to play the game.
