Black ops! Your thoughts?

So far I'm not very impressed with the game at all. It's only remotely fun to me because it's something new to mess with. The graphics on the online multiplayer mode are a joke and maybe its just me but the guns look weird. Treyarch sucked at WaW I guess I was hoping that they might do something right this time. What are ya'lls initial reactions to the game?

No more hotrods.

The graphics on the campaign are awesome. That being said, the quality of the campaign is only ok. It's like they tried to make it too extreme. My roommate played online tonight and said it was ok but Mw2 is definitely better. I'll give online a shot here soon. I liked the simplicity of WaW. Too much customization gets on my nerves.

There are two different companies putting out CoD games. They alternate right now. I think it's activation that puts out the Modern Warfare series even though Treyarch is the original. MW2 is insanity. Probably the perfect multiplayer setup for hardcore FPS gamers.

After having more time to play it i'll have to say MW2 is probably better. The sound/graphics aren't as good. It is something new to play with but that will only last so long. Played Nazi Zombies last night and couldn't get past wave 5. Kept getting raped by dogs and running out of ammo.

I might play it for a few more days then i might go back to MW2.

Don't talk about it! Be about it!

Infinity Ward and Treyarch are the two developers, fwiw.


I think yall are crazy. I like it quite a bit better than MW2 so far.

This franchise is gonna flop like Halo did with Reach. And that's what happens when you start to cater solely to the MLG crowd. With that said, IW is the only one who puts out "decent" COD games. Treyarch well, like the talk goes about [email protected] that game sucked. Activision is the publisher, not the dev.

That is fair and good, but I do not believe that the game was a "flop".

Hell, I remember when I was younger if as game sold 1 million copies it went on the "greatest hits" list.

Financial Success does not attribute success among the fan base. Medal of Honor (2010) sold pretty well, and everyone I know that plays MP (not noobs or casuals) agree that the game was terrible compared to its counterparts (bc2/mw1)

Fair enough, but I would like to state that I own neither Halo Reach nor Medal of Honor. I believe that they are fine games, but have too much competition. The FPS genre is getting kind of played out in its current incarnation IMO.

Save your pennies bro it fucking blows donkey dick graphics blow. Haven't played campaign but I don't but games to play alone. I enjoy online play and it's no where near the quality of MW2.

With that said my copy is for sale for a dollar less than the stores lol

I like the gameplay online, but the maps suck IMO. Everyone I have played is too small or one sided, or the spawns are stupid. All I play is shooters but Halo reach sucked and MW2 is boring now, so I'll probably go back and forth between Black ops and MOH.

If you're being chased by a police dog, try not to go through a tunnel, then on to a little seesaw, then jump through a hoop of fire. They're trained for that!

Thumbs down

Not impressed at all with Black Ops. Online play is somewhat choppy and I've been kicked off the servers more times than in the year I've been playing MW2. The Campaign is ok, but like mentioned above, it's more story line than actual fighting, too complicated. I'm going to keep giving it a chance, but I may just go back to MW2 eventually.

Yall are nuts, yea its new and different but thats good. The server issues will get fixed soon enough. The wager matches are badass so are the new weapons and killstreaks, and now you can trend your matches as you play with your ratios and see where you are hitting people the most. I personally only played MW2 the most online this past year out of the others but Black Ops does it for me.

I think it does grow on you a little. I don't think single player is bad at all.

After having a couple more days with it i have to say i don't think i'll be playing it much longer. The game is a campers dream. At least on multiplayer. The spawning is horrible. Most of the time as soon as you spawn you get killed. I find that unless there is a spy plane up i'm always getting shot from behind.

Most of the time i can rack up 18-30 kills depending on if those kills come so close i get a nice killstreak going. Other times it's just horrible spawning that gets me killed.

Don't talk about it! Be about it!

Move over, Activision. Here comes Activision.

"Call of Duty: Black Ops" sold 5.6 million copies in 24 hours, making it the biggest entertainment launch ever, Activision said Thursday.

This breaks the previous record of 4.7 million, which Activision set last year with "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2."

"There has never been another entertainment franchise that has set opening day records for two consecutive years," Activision CEO Bobby Kotick said in a statement.

The game is also on track to outperform last year's five-day global sales record, which was $550 million, Kotick said.

Activision places the total one-day sales figure at $360 million, which is an okay amount of money, I guess. It makes you wonder, though -- do 5.6 million people really care about Call of Duty, or did they all just want to play Zork?

they added cool stuff and thats why i got it, but i prefer MW2.
