    I actually liked Call of Duty Modern Warfare: Mobilized.
    It was a good game. I loved the gameplay. It was addictive.
    This looks good. Not graphics-wise but through gameplay.

    Shouldn't this be on the front page?

    Well 2 player co-up sucks. I liked playing with 2 of my friends in COD together.

    I'd be happy if there was a Download Play in this one.

    The other CoD DS games were pretty good but they cramp the fuck out of your hands. It's the main thing that's put me off from really finishing all of them.

    That's why I have a DSi XL: Less hand cramping.

    Doesn't look too bad, but why do those developers always seem to think that jamming loads of crap on the touch screen is any good? I mean, what the hell? Two different buttons for guns, a grenade button, a zoom button, a stick (?) button, a mini map, a timer, the number of bullets in your gun and the number of bullets in stock, a return button (or something like that, it looks like it at least) AND another black bar that doesn't seem to serve any purpose... If you ask me, that's a perfect example of overkill.

    Looks great tbh. Bad thing about the last COD for the DS was the lag when the enemies would come out behind doors/walls. Hope that is fixed in this version. Not to mention the online was a bit horrible. Small maps etc.

    Meh, although they tout all these new features, I doubt it'll be THAT much of an improvement from the first few DS Call of Duty games. Which isn't to say that the previous ones weren't bad or anything, but unless it turns out phenomenal, I doubt it'll be worth getting.

    I'll remain optimistic, though.

    For a title like this, they should've waited for the 3DS, they really should.

    Finally.
    My stepfather has been asking me for over three months now when I will put a new FPS on his DS, since he has already played all the FPSs that are already available. Now I can finally still his hunger for crappy FPSs. [​IMG]

    Also, since when -check the map on the second screenshot- is CoD about killing cherries?

    Or maybe on both. With the transition from GBA to NDS, a lot of titles were released on both systems. Another Call of Duty title for the DS wouldn't surprise me.

    Seeing the franchise is popular enough to let them milk it dry, they will keep releasing games for all consoles and handhelds (although I'm not sure if there are any for the PSP) until said console/handheld is completely dead.

    And even then they might still make games for it only to never release them.

    J/k.

    Nah, this looks just as bad as the other CoD DS games. They sucked balls. Rubbish controls, hard gameplay. Much prefer the 360 versions.

    FPS games on DS are good but it hurts my hand.
