a) So many people bashing one **** game's Metacritic score is a pathetic waste of a paragraph. If you want something changed about multiplayer, see the official forums. If Spec Ops wasn't to your liking, well you're a **** moron. And if it's single player, well grow up and buy a real game. This was a multiplayer purchase first and foremost. If you didn't realize that when you bought it, I really do feel bad for you.
b) The little tweeks that make CoD come out year after year, the reason they keep making as much money as they do is because the fanbase is there. Hell for a radically different example, look at Halo. Halo has not **** changed at all over the 10 years it's been out. Shield, healthbar, death. And hell, they're upgrading the pistol to its original form here soon! They're reverting back to the old ways and that particular fanbase is PAYING to play that!? Seriously though, CoD comes out with a different game every year. If you're expecting big, radical changes, you're into the wrong game series.
c) As someone who took a year off after MW2 came out because I hate **** Treyarch and because 3 months after MW2 came out the Tac Nuke was being overused in my typical gametype, Hardcore TD, I **** love this game. This game took what was good from MW2, mashed it with what originally worked in MW1, and put it in a nice little bow where they improved upon the hit boxes online as well as the 60FPS frame rate.
To all you who are mass producing the 0 grade, you're review should be thrown out because it serves no purpose but to bastardize a great game. Wanna make a statement next time a CoD game comes out? DON'T **** BUY IT AND STAY OFF THE **** SERVERS.… Expand

The real problem with it over everything else is the lack of a decent party system which is needed for a game like Brink. The amount of teamwork required for a "skunk" isn't at all that much, just that players need to play their classes like they were designed.
The thing I don't understand is why Bethesda (the publisher, mind you) is getting so much flak for a game they didn't even create. Splash Damage (the developer) did a fantastic trying to bring the FPS genre out of the same crap seen in every COD/Halo/enter generic shooter title here. The addition of the free running only adds to this. The in game art, the character design and the use of color makes this one very pretty game to look at. The classes were well thought out and essentially this game is a smaller class based game like TF2 but with customizable weapon loadouts.
The only thing I did not like about this game, other then the lack of a party system, was the fact that you could unlock almost every gun and attachment in about a good 20 minutes of playing the challenges. If they would of spread the attachments out as well as the weapons people would still be playing this like crazy just like the do with their CODs and Halos to unlock everything that they wanted to. COD with the weapons and Halo with the outfits.
But overall, it's an excellent game.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.0Aug 2, 2011I will admit the customizing of the decks was improved over the very first Duels of the Planeswalkers that came out 2 years ago. The nice partI will admit the customizing of the decks was improved over the very first Duels of the Planeswalkers that came out 2 years ago. The nice part is that they've made things so much smoother in 2012. The slight graphics updates came as a wonderful transition as did the addition of Archenemy. The only part that brings this game down is that the soundtrack for this game is absolute garbage. The sound is needed for the most part so you know when you can do something if you're not paying close attention. But other then that this is one of the more enjoyable experiences on the XBLA. The "luck" portion balances out the "skill" portion very well. And the way the decks actually compliment one another and aren't at all overpowered makes any deck a winner. Just gotta know what you're doing. $10 well spent.… Expand
