Black Ops 2 developer baffled by contempt for Call of Duty engine

Treyarch's David Vondehaar sticks up for the Infinity Ward engine, which has been "significantly upgraded" this year. "It runs at 60 and it's gorgeous. What exactly is there to be upset about?"

They upgraded to new APIs so that next set of consoles will run it at even better resolutions and details. Not really much of an upgrade though.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say. Nothing about Black Ops (multiplayer) struck me as 'gorgeous'. If anything, it was hideous and I remember standing still waiting for what I thought was the textures on a vehicle to load....needless to say it didn't...

The 60fps is great but as far as graphics it looks barely ok to me. I don't see anything gorgeous about it at all sorry.

For a game running on 60 FPS FOR A CONSOLE, it looks beautiful. Key here is on a console.

So what its on console. It looks decent, acceptable. It sure as hell ain't beautiful, and there are other games that run at 60fps or slightly lower that look much better.

Really? What games on a console this generation can run at 60fps and deliver a smooth and stellar experience like cod?

The real test will be how the series looks on next-gen consoles. If they don't upgrade the engine then, they have no excuse.

SHEEPLE will continue to buy this lame franchise no matter how bad it looks.. if it's 60FPS and it rewards campers and campin-gameplay, then CoD nerds will continue to buy it every November, then complain and rage at the end product for the next 6 months afterwards.. it happens every year with CoD...

Sheeple here, and yes we will continue to buy this game. But some of us will also get AC3, Far Cry 3, Bioshock Infinite, Hitman, Colonial Marines, etc. Get off your pedestal and realize sometimes people buy games for fun. The bottom line is I don't have fun playing BF, it's more of a chore. So there!

LOVE, how they feel the need to defend such ancient Quake tech..

Shoebox levels and 'anyone can excel game play mechanics' are what really entice the shallow minded COD washed humans.

Give them Battlefield @ 120fps in 4K and they would still pass it up for their lame, self gratifying shooter from the past.

Well ain't that ironic? I'm baffled by the release of COD every year.......
