I got blackops on midnight release

Tue Nov 09, 2010 2:24 am

Anyone like what they've done with black ops? I personally don't find the multiplayer fun, it feels like world at war. The sound system isn't as good as cod 4 or mw2, meaning you can't hear footsteps/grenades/shooting as clear, and in which direction it's coming from. (granted you have an idea, but not as clear as the activision cods.) I also liked the way the graphics were upped in mw2 from cod4, and don't like how they've backtracked and made black ops look the way it does.

I will give the online a go for a week but doubt my opinion will change, although I played a few rounds of nazi zombies (I never played zombies in waw) and I PINEAPPLE loved every minute of it. Even with random kids that were opening tons of doors that probably shouldn't have been opened until we had a good setup, it was loads of fun. If I decide to keep black ops, it will more then likely be for the soul reason of nazi zombies with rl friends.

For me remembering that Treyarch, not Infinity Ward, is responsible for Black Ops will be critical to my enjoyment of it.

Infinity Ward was insanely generous to let Treyarch have the next release after MW2. The amount of marketing and money that's been poured into Black Ops is just staggering.

Infinity ward doesn't own the CoD series, nor do they make the decisions, bloody. Activision controls all of the above, and with Infinity ward in ruins (legally), I'm going to say Treyarch will be making the next CoD game, also.

Behold, I am not well-informed!

Just goes to show that being a fan of a game doesn't mean you know stuff.

I'm waiting for a week or two before buying Black Ops, just to see if it looks fun and to get other peoples opinions.

Well, I may get it, but it depends on money and my little brother. But, most of my friends say it actually has worse graphics than MW2, and is simply an Upgraded version of MW2 in terms of glitch fixing, kill streaks, and weapons. No real change in gameplay.

I find the gameplay a lot different actually, longer kill times, reduced auto-aim, no quickscopers..

I'm lovin' it so far. It's like Treyarch used MW2 as the beta for it and took out the things that pissed people off. Namely the grenade launcher - you pretty much have to hit the ground below someone's feet to kill them now.

If they did that then second chance wouldn't be in black ops ;)

S&D has always been my saving grace of COD. I really enjoyed it in MW2 until everyone learned the spawn tubes with Danger Close then 1 Man Army'd to their S&D class.

However, Black Ops S&D is a lot more fun IMO. I think camera spikes and the decoy grenades are kind of annoying, but other than that, S&D is pretty good.

I actually like it, it's fun, and zombies is sick. There are a few latency issues and hitbox issues that Treyarch are aware of, and are planning to patch, because apparently, unlike infinityward, they actually suport their game when it's not being hacked or when they add new maps...

Infinityward = suck
Treyarch = not bad

but it's still a COD game... That's a problem

As some of you may already know, I got Blacks Ops for my ps3 instead of my xbox but I got to say its alot more fun than I thought it was going to be. IMO it still doesnt beat MW2 tho. But I absolutly love the customization options, the perk balancing and the reduced explosive slapsh damage.I love the emblems so much. The perks are very well balanced IMO except that I dont use anything except ninja for perk 3. I do think there are a few weapons that could be nerfed but there not as big of deal as the UMP was in MW2. The one thing that has been pissing me of is the amount of RC-XDs there are. Everyone runs the damn thing. So I just use flak facket so you pretty much have to be stepping on it to blow up. And Zombies is loads of fun. I like that they introduced "boss" types into the levels. I only wish I got the Hardened Edition so I could play the CoD WaW classic maps.... But Wal-Mart didnt have any...

Now the game has been out for almost a week I've found some problems:

Searching for a match can take a while
Hitbox is small
Can't hear footsteps (Therefore Ninja is useless)
Panic Knifers
Spawns

Treyarch plan to fix the sound and searching so that's good.
