It is better than world at war, pretty much the same as modern warfare 2 but with little things i like more but modern warfare 1 is still the daddy

I was told to come here and say something about Black Ops.
It is poo.
I don't usually do this whole "Quote for truth" thing but well... What he said tbh.
This game is so abysmal it's almost depressingly bad! Seriously I think it's worse than MW2, it is the biggest decline in a series of videogames since Sonic the Hedgehog (and both could be fixed by going back to roots.)
The only thing I like is that splitscreen is more feature heavy in this. The splitscreen can be used in online public games which is great and more games should push this feature IMO. But the game isn't fun to play so it's kind of moot.
Basically COD fans will obviously disagree and play it anyway which is fine. But for me, well i'm just glad I rented it instead of purchasing it.... To be fair it probably is worth a rental if you can, but do the gaming community a favour and yourself by not buying this game.

hey guys well l played for 8 hours solid from 1 am last night and below is what l thought of it:-
I mostly agree that all of the guns sound dreadful, very un-realistic and the recoil!!! Hmmmm. the game is definately aimed at the players who just run round non stop and if you decide like me to like to be a bit stealth and move around slowly and find yourself away from the rest of your team you are instantly surrounded by at least 2 or 3 players who have re spawned directly by you and your dead. That has got to be looked into as if the game is trying to tell you how to play then thats not a game l want to play. the game play just seems so mixed, you have people that look as if there going 100mph but then it seems really slow and clumsy when trying to aim (again reminds me so much of WOW). Graphics l find are just ok no maps that l think wow that looks class. On the upside l feel the new additions example personilze your gun and camo and the economy side of it is very good. I hated WOW and l feel that this game in most ways has gone backwards from MW2 and once again back to the same game play as WOW which was hated by many people. the question l have is after all the mixed reviews about WOW and then the best selling MW2 came out why did you feel the makers of WOW Treyarch was the right people to take over again. MW2 in my opinion was awesome and didnt know many people who went back to WOW after that came out where with this l think MW2 has got a massive life span as l have already taken Black Ops back (CEX £33 CASH). After 4 years l really wished you had listened to gamers and maybe even let the infinity Ward makers work on game play and let Treyarch work on the customization, for future reference to let treyarch to make another copy would be a mistake, you have to stick with Infinity ward and l only hope and prey its not 2 years before we see COD 8 else l might have already lost the love by then. Treayrchy promised so much and delivered so little which sadly was expected by many!!! Which is a statement in itself

Well, where to begin? After reading rave reviews and watching all trailers and gameplay I could find through various sources I was extremely pumped. The fact that Treyarch had listened to the audience was an immediate hype for me.
The single player out of all the current-gen cod franchise games is the strongest storywise, whilst it doesn't deliver that "awesome-ness" that MW1&2. I felt at certain points I was just hoping it would end sooner so my tedium for multiplayer could be exhausted (this is likely the hype however I didn't feel this during MW2's campaign.) For those who were anxious about the single player, it definitely delivers a longer playthrough depending on your skill level, I managed to complete it in around 4 hours on medium.
This could have just been me very eager to grab hold of the Multi-player experience and see if it lives up to it's promising quality.
The bane of the Call of Duty franchise, Treyarch definitely re-defined the MP by cutting loose certain elements found in previous COD titles such as kill-streak whores and skill sniping. Whilst this is an excellent decision, along with the removal of certain perks such as Stopping Power, I feel that with certain weapons it can take a great deal of ammo to drop a single enemy, due to this it appears the knife melee is still a strong player in the MP, dulling and agrovating certain moments during gameplay.
Customization is an even bigger strongpoint in the game along with the credit system is a welcome addition, I did feel though during Level 4 already purchasing a silencer felt too easy and a once great earning system was torn. Credits are generally easy to obtain and not so much of a challenge to collect a large amount in such small time. I feel that customizion was the main use of the credit system rather then earning your attachments through practice.
My multiplayer experience has been a frustrating few hours, experiencing constant disconnections and drop outs, even finding a game and frequent freezes during the menus sours the overall view of the MP at this moment. Along with other changes and implementations from the above and even more tweaks such as claymores giving instant kills and grenade damage proximity limitations has only promoted more problems and issues with the MP.
Black Ops definitely steps up the mark and fixes issues from previous installments however with the seemingly frustrating changes for the worse, bundled with in-game and connection issues the MP experience isn't feels alot more like WaW rather then a re-defined experience.
I do not yet feel that Black Ops deserves the high price tag it garners, the single player felt tasteless and as the MP has been mended from it's predecessors issues, it's been toppled with changes that feel un-needed and only bring more tedium to the overall experience. The cheap-looking graphics engine powered originally with World at War makes it not the greatest graphical experience, the sound although very excellent did seem a touch off with me.
Perhaps I have yet to discover the joy of multiplayer but five hours into it, and I don't yet feel the CoD magic- even MW2 delivered a more exciting thrill to me, perhaps the removal and dampening of certain gameplay elements instead left a dull standard FPS rather then an exciting, action packed experience we was waiting for. It just didn't feel like Call of Duty.
Perhaps the Call of Duty franchise is starting to feel stale?
