Treyarch comes clean: Black Ops didn't "significantly innovate", but Black Ops 2 will

OXM - Call of Duty: Black Ops wasn't the most innovative shooter on the block, Treyarch's Mark Lamia has conceded, but Black Ops 2? It's going to innovate your socks off. Not wearing socks? Say goodbye to your feet.

Hope they're right this time, and aren't just saying that to take a trip down our Wallets..... again.

CustardTrout1463d ago

I have faith in them, with the dynamic changing story etc, but I've had faith in other companies too...

nrvalleytime1463d ago

Agreed. I don't know if this is a consistent problem with Treyarch, but I hesitate to believe this statement. Wait and see approach seems best here.

supersonicjerry1462d ago

They have added so much I don't see how they can be taking a trip down our wallets. Campaign,Mulitplayer ,and Zombies have so much that no other COD has.

Modern Warfare 3 was the COD game made with the least amount of effort.
Really put me off the series.
Hopefully BLOPS 2 will be an improvement.
I think Treyarch have overtaken infinity ward.

Honest ? dunno , they didnt come clean about their previous games . It just happens that ghost IW is just far worse in that regard .

And it's too obvious to deny at this point , espcially after they squeezed everybit of money from those titles already

A game doesn't have to be innovative to be fun.
Besides, they never said Black Ops was super innovative. So why does it say that Treyearch is "coming clean"? They're phrasing it like a confession or something.

Gohadouken1463d ago (Edited 1463d ago )

Of course not . But there is such a things as improving your game in sequels even if retaining most of it . Wich Cod does but too sparringly .

People love to draw analogies with sport games , but take football games ... at least when they dont come up with big gameplay changes (wich they still did more often than the cod series) , they at least significantly upgrades their graphics and animations .

Cod ? Not so much , sometimes not even at all . Hell Dynasty Warriors , the king of milking series , had more changes between 5 and 7 than past cod titles .

2 years from now:

Treyarch comes clean: Black Ops 2 didn't "significantly innovate", but Black Ops 3 will.

4 years from now:

Treyarch comes clean: Black Ops 3 didn't "significantly innovate", but Black Ops 4 will.

... and so on.

This is exactly what will happen they say this so you can give them your money and that's what their all bothered about

ProGrasTiNation1463d ago

How are they honest if they come out & say...look last time we lied but this time we are really innovating,these cod devs use the words of activision.
Its gonna be 4 hours of getting your hand held through a mindless no brain game with very little gameplay.
If they made this game require any thought at all the kids would never play it.
Even the multi play has become an unbalanced mess & requires no brain power to play it.

Come november 2014 they will say " we know blops 2 didnt innovate, but blops 3 will." lol

THE_MACGREGOR1463d ago (Edited 1463d ago )

well ill be the first to say this, believe it or not from a COD stand point. Treyarch has really been the ones to innovate the franchise. Sure cod 3 wasnt anything worth noting . However it was the first game that allowed the player to sprint prior to that you had to switch pistols.
Fast forward to 2008 world at war.
Zombies. Allowed for players to differentiate along the competitive gaming routes and engage and help one another while also competiting to survive rounds.
IW did do the same thing the next year in a differ way with Spec Ops ( which is kinda crappy too)
Follow that up With Black Ops
Zombies again with the experience upgraded
as well as wager matches
also combat training to test your skill before alot of you get gang banged online.

By the way, you know you couldn't actually sprint in Call of Duty 3? Popped it in a minute ago to see, and you can't.

But the rest of your comment is solid, for the most part, soo... :P

You could sprint (In MP)

What exactly is "innovative" about black ops 2? I'd pretty much bet Treyarch claimed the original black ops was innovative too around about this time.
