    Give it to Infinity Ward if you want it not to fail.

    And also; as a CoD-player, I really like the way they're getting out of the WW2. The first two games were ok, but IMO the fourth is even better. It's no just the new enviroment/era, but there's no issues in the gameplay as far as I'm concerned. (In CoD2 the climbing was still somwhat buggy)

    maybe i am being dense, but what the hell does "set in an entirely new military theatre" mean?
    Are we just talking new "futuristic" environments/weapons?

    lol :D

    Very good!

    Damn, wish I'd thought of that

    There's a nice old theatre near the bottom of my road, I'm sure they'd be okay with it. It's a chinese takeaway now.

    Basically it means it won't be WWII Europe or modern day in generic middle eastern country/Russian/Ex-Soviet Bloc. It could still be WWII or modern day, just in a different place, like others have said, WWII Pacific, or a different location in modern day (China, USA, something like that), a different war in the past (e.g. Korean War, Spanish Civil War, etc.).

    What I would like to see is a WWII game where you play as the Germans, we've played as the bad good guys now, why not the bad guys? Although I am pretty bored of the WWII setting now, I don't think playing as the Germans would be enough of a breath of fresh air for it.

    What I would like to see is them getting rid of the ****ing terrible respawning enemies mechanic, that destroyed CoD2 and CoD4. It's a shame because CoD4 had such a great single player, only to be ruined by having to run through a wall of bullets to progress anywhere.

    Seconded. I got stuck on a point in COD4 and basically haven't bothered with it for a while because of the insurmountable odds of becoming swiss cheese in less than sixty seconds.

    COD4 sucked, time to upgrade the gamepley from 1999, trigger points, endless spawn points with dumb enemies, small levels with no interactivity, unrealistic guns. Call me unexcited.
