The big added feature in this years Call of Duty is the dog companion, Riley. From what I’ve seen on the Internet and from chatting to people the dog is going down quite well with the fans but I have to admit I’m not totally sold on the idea.

I’ve never been a fan of the stealth levels in game and with the dog it feels like a perpetual stealth stage.

The take downs are pretty awesome and I love the way you can breach a room with the dog, that rocks.

So what do you think, are you looking forward to building an emotional attachment with Riley or are you the type who will keep trying to shoot the dog to see what happens?

I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer

    Ok were the staff of the ASPCA ( American Society for the prevention of Cruelty to Animals) involved in the game or present in its development?

    But on a lighter note Battlefield 4 single and multi-player looks better

      What really bothers me is that you don’t see his handler having a small bag to clean up behind the dog. That’s irresponsible!

    Collar of Duty…

      Peter Molyneux wants his treasure-hunting dog back…

      Well spotted sir! Well spotted

      • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

        Copy/paste indeed

  • ElimiNathan

    I wonder if those dogs can be trained to take commands that well ? Would be insane

    • Argentil

      It’s a bit Hollywoodified, but it’s not that far off from what I heard.

  • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

    How would you tell the dog to keep quiet when he wants to rip throats out?

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      SShhhhhhh

      • Happy Hamster

        Sit BOEBOE Sit good dog

  • brad coetzee

    as an extreme and ridiculous fan of dogs I am definitely getting this. I bet Riley dies in the end to give it that bit of emotional kick ‘tween the legs. I will probably cry too.

    • Happy Hamster

      at the End we find out its a mechanical dog

  • Ryanza

    I’m the type who won’t buy this shit.

  • Jakster

    Wait, what!!! No cats in this game?!?! The Cats shall rise, take over the internet and protest!!!!!!!

  • Tbone187

    Nah,, it’s gonna take more than a dog to compete with the new Battlefield…More of a novelty feature I’d say…Certainly not something to be campaigning about…Although, it hasn’t been done before so who knows how it’ll impact the game…

    What’s that Lassy, there’s a Sgt. Marine trapped down a hole with an IED strapped around him? Oh, he’s broken his leg? Oh, there are terrorists surrounding his position? Oh, Lassy, not on the side of the Jeep…
