Has COD4 ruined the FPS genre?

327w ago - Pop Quiz: What should you do if you make a game that breaks records and sets the bar so high that it will take another entire development cycle for game-makers to catch up?

If you're Activision's marketing director David Tyler, you brag your ass off. Speaking of the enormous success of Call of Duty 4, Tyler spoke to trade magazine MCV, including some words that were probably not too well-received at EA or Ubisoft.

"We're pleased to have Call of Duty 4 leading the way in the FPS genre, with recent launches such as Army of Two and Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 failing to inspire," said Tyler.

This is one of those statements you just want to sling a wet banana at, and I would if it weren't so laden with truth, that the Vatican was having it carved into the Sistine Chapel.

While I have marched a little ways into the R6V2 campaign, I can't help but cast a longing glance at my worn-out CoD 4 case. Call of Duty 4 just might have ruined shooters for me for a long time.

To learn a bit more about what we can expect out of the download, IGN went to Kim Krogh, game director for the fragile alliance multiplayer mode.

IGN: Kane & Lynch received a decent critical response from press outlets. What kind of feedback have you gotten from consumers since release?

Kim Krogh: The consumer feedback has been overwhelming for both Kane & Lynch and Fragile Alliance. Players who bought and played the game seem to love it. We got a lot of positive feedback from people who really love the style, atmosphere and game play. Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is not your typical shooter and consumers seem to really like this for the special kind of cinematic crime shooter it is.

IGN: How well have these two grisly main characters resonated with fans? Do people connect with them at all or are they seen more as over-the-top, Arnold Schwarzenegger in Commando style characters?

Krogh: Players seem to love the fact that this is not the typical over-the-top commando hero and seem to have less trouble actually connecting with that. From the feedback we have got they seem to have adopted and understood Kane and Lynch as anti heroes...
