I am totally engrossed in the Campaign, I think its awesome !
Maybe i'm just easily amused but I love the fact its set piece after set piece, the fact that there is no dull moments.. Never had so much fun in a game for a while.
I am on the fence about multiplayer, I always used to enjoy sniping but black ops seems to make it impossible. (Yes I know it stops quick scoping, but yea...)
Spawning is my main problem, so far i have only played mercenary team deathmatch and I constantly get enemy spawning behind me who I have just killed..Rather annoying.
Separate note though: Whats the Target assist in Multiplayer? Is is better to have it on or off, How do you guys play?

I'm not an expert reviewer, but i am an avid and experienced FPS gamer and this is my honest opinion.
Well now havin completed COD and had sum time 2 reflect I must say I'm not that impressed. I feel it completely missed a trick with the era and especially the bits in Nam. These bits shud have been so atmospheric and tense. Enclosed and claustrophobic jungles, cramped tunnels, VC jumping out on u and having to bash buttons 2 fight 4 ur life, but no none of that really. There was a little in the tunnels but nothing that had me on the edge of my seat not wanting 2 turn the next corner 4 the fear of a booby trap or a VC waiting to impale me.
Also wen u think of that era and Nam u immediately conjure up images of a Huey speeding over paddy fields, with a GI leaning out of an open door blasting away with an MG, all to the sounds of the classic music from that era. Where was a level like that?!?! Where was all the music from the era that is synonymous with Nam?!?!
Or GI's pinned down and surrounded, calling in napalm strikes left, right and centre from fast air. Think any of the scenes from Platoon, Full Metal Jacket, Hamburger Hill, We Were Soldiers all theatrical and atmospheric, modern games shud b like that, it's what the modern gamer expects and this wasn't.
I thought the new MOH was a bit disappointing and was looking forward to COD. But I think COD was even more disappointing. COD just seemed rushed and with a disjointed storey line that jumped about all over the place. There just seemed to b a distinct lack of effort, they were good in the past but not anymore, they r trading on their past reputation and that not good enough, times have moved on and so shud they!!!
Where were the big set pieces that propelled u thro the game. There was not an 'AC130 moment' in this game, nothing to make it stand out as in the previous COD's. Like I said b4 my image of a Huey tarring over the paddy fields cud have been BO's 'AC130 moment'.
MOH had its memorable moments. Flying in the Apache was great fun and sticks out in my mind. Also the scene b4 the Apache where ur squad is pinned down and surrounded with Ur cover being blown to bits around u. That was intense, atmospheric and memorable. To me there was nothing really memorable to make this COD stand out from the rest, it was boring and slow, unlike previous COD's.
I personally think BF BC2 has both COD and MOH whooped, both in single player and online.

supposedly treyarc or it could be bungie, who knows
Not a Halo fan but I can appreciate the games. If Bungie got on board to make the next CoD I reckon it'd be awesome...
It's just a rumour, but it could be by Sledgehammer
Sniping is poo in Black Ops as its a fast pace game! Silly Treyarch!!
