Plus I am, without doubt, totally hopeless at that type of FPS game.

Mind you, I recall playing LFD2 with Bison and TCT a few years ago and that was a lot of fun :-)

Meanwhile, I've been enjoying Sniper Ghost Contract Warriors or whatever it's called. You're right Geek, it is a great way to relax after a hard day. Very satisfying to watch those bullets making skulls explode.

You can switch invasion mode off right?

I mean it sounds great but some 12 year old dick riding round in a kubelwagen trying to knock you over is not my idea of down time

Yes, you can turn it off. 

I read a bit more about 5 last night.  They added the ability to play entire missions co-op which is kinda neat but they stripped out the co-op spotter/saboteur mode from 4.  That's a shame because it was really fun.  One player acted as a sniper/spotter and had to spit and tag objectives for the other player, the saboteur.  They would have to sneak around and try to complete said objectives.  It player out a lot like a FPS version of Commandos 2 but there were only a handful of maps featuring this mode.

The other thing they removed is the tripwire mine.  Speculation is that it was too easy to take out other human players in invasion mode with these so they got rid of them.  Big mistake IMO. They should definitely be in-game if you turn off Invasion mode as they're invaluable tools for covering your flanks in single player (and it's fun to blow Hitler's nether regions off with them on the kill the Fuhrer maps.

The only thing better than the high velocity neutering of Nazis is the high velocity neutering of Nazis at a discount.


(Although if you bought 4 then I guess you'll be neutering Giuseppe, not Hans.)

Can’t praise 4 highly enough so far - it looks stunning and it has just the right amount of sneakery and killing from 100m away

I always thought the gruesome kill cams were a bit peurile but find them quite rewarding when activated

As for my old man ‘get off my lawn’ moaning about invasion mode in 5 - having watched some YouTube guys playing it seems to be a total hoot IF the player you’ve invaded is up for the challenge AND both of you are sensible and not just out to spoil the others game

But since you got 4, I say it's time for co-op!

Damn it!  I decided to reinstall 4 and play through it again but for some reason, the game now refuses to run.  it just stays on the loading screen forever and I can't even CTRL-ALT-DEL out, I have to do a hard reboot of the PC to get rid of it.
