Average User Score: 6.1Nov 24, 2010I love COD. I loved COD4:MW, I loved W@W, and also MW2.
The campaign for Black Ops is good. I don't know if I would say better than the previous 3, but at least compare to W@W, the game doesn't "cheat" by throwing infinite grenades as much.
HOWEVER, the reason people buy (and keep) COD is for its multiplayer, and this game's multiplayer is:
1) Just "off"... Doesn't feel right... I can't quantify it, but having played for so many years, I can tell you when this games just doesn't "feel" right.
2) The sniping in this game sucks. It is simply broken. Not just for "quickscopers", but also for "normal-scoping" snipers. 3) The introduction of "COD Dollars" devalues everything in my opinion. Previously, seeing someone with a "Red Tiger" would mean that person was quite good with that weapon... In Black Ops? No problem.... Anyone can "buy" any camo for the money they earn in a single match.
4) The lag in the online is horrendous! Don't remember it being this bad in any other iteration.
In short, I'm afraid for the first time in this game's iteration history, I've stopped playing the "latest version" and have gone back to the prior version (MW2 in this case).
Such a shame.… Expand
