This Call of Duty Black ops video shows a great knife kill and some sniper gameplay footage.
Not awesome enough to throw out 70$ for some MW2 upgrade..
I think differently. Black Ops will be my first COD game and it looks way better than MW2 and could potentially be more entertaining than COD4. I'm tired of the dumbasses on this site who downplay COD for being unrealistic. NEWSFLASH: It's a videogame. And Treyarch NEVER promised to make the most realistic FPS out there. "MW2 doesn't get downplayed for being unrealistic.It gets downplayed for being too noob friendly" Its called accessibility. The game is meant to be FUN for everyone regardless of skill. Millions upon millions of people love the formula.
MW2 doesn't get downplayed for being unrealistic.It gets downplayed for being too noob friendly
its not intended to be a war simulator. I think some people dont understand this fact.
EXACTLY. It's just the case of people wanting to look cool because they think rebelling against something that is popular is cool. It's not. COD is tons of fun. Sure, MW2 has its flaws and irritations and I am so happy BO as seen this and removed the things that plagued MW2. COD is meant to be a fun game that everyone can get into.
Also, how is it "noob-friendly"? I have never had a friend first play this game and do well. My buddy is new to the COD franchise and MW2 was his first. He blew chunks for monnths until he started getting the hang of it. Still, he isn't nearly as good as I am since I have been playing COD for years prior.
Yes, MW2 had terrible exploits, like commando, 1887's, dangerclose + one man army. Those things have been removed and fixed. They took out stopping power which removes a useless perk. The perks are balanced for the places they are in, to make it more balanced. This game looks incredible yet people still comment that they are tired of it. You know what, I am tired of seeing the same peopel write the same comment in every COD post. If you don't like this game, then why the hell are you even looking at COD articles? Makes no sense to me. I don't plan on buying Fable III, therefore I never look at the Fable III articles.
People think it's cool to hate this game, yet these are the same people who will be outside gamestop midnight to pick it up.
EDIT: Thanks ddurand1.
I can understand calling MW2 "noob-friendly" but I assure you that there is a division of talent based on tactics, skills, teamwork, etc. Use all the noobtubes and commando you want on me. Once I figure out your routine my team and I will break you, I promise you that common sense teamwork always prevails in ANY game. I'm tired of the COD hate too. It's not a war simulator, it's not meant to be 100% realistic. It's a fun game, I like it, therefore I will buy it. Black Ops seems to fix a LOT of the problems in MW2. If you've been following the game you will see that there is a lot fixed and tuned for balance. I trust that this will be the best one since CoD4 which IMO was the best shooter I've played this gen
I really hate people on this site who trolls in every COD article available saying things like "Oooo...the Models are overpowered...shotguns can't shoot from far...so unrealistic..."...Shotgun s are known to shoot long distances. You can even shoot a length of a football field. "Oooo..I hate this game..'nade launchers are so gay". Grenade launchers are available in the army, and just because you haven't reached the level in which you can unlock it yet, and people are starting to kill you a lot with it, doesn't make it gay. "Ooooo...MW2 are so full of campers". Half Life, Counter Strike, Halo, which FPS game doesn't have campers? "Ooooo...The game is so unbalanced...it takes no skill". So you think playing a game takes actual skill? You're wrong. It's a game, you don't even have to move your butt to play it. Unbalanced? Like how? Every game is supposed to be unbalanced, the better players will 95% of the time, win against noob players like yourself. "So, you noobs are going to pay 60$ for a few upgrades of the last game?". Typical hater. F**K YOU. "I sold MW2 5 days after I finished the campaign". No one cares.
I hope I don't come out as a "hater", I loved CoD4 and clocked in probably around 100 hours. I've personally lost interest because of the same formula, but I certainly don't deny other people the pleasure of enjoying it. I do think that it's not very fair to charge full price for basically a mod, utilizing the same engine. Less work was put into the making of the game, which is why they can release version after version, hence the word "milking" which has been attributed to the franchise. That being said, I still think it's a hella fun game. I just wanted them to release more maps for CoD4 and I would have been a very happy bunny. :)
@deadreckoning666 What makes you think you know more about Cod than the people who have been playing Cod 4, Cod WaW and Cod MW2 when you say you haven't played any of them? Call of duty game are good but if been playing them for 3 years it gets tiring and the similarities and the fact the games release every single year does make it a bit boring. I will be skipping on Black Ops and move to games like Resistance 3 Killzone 3 Medal of Honor GT5 Infamous 2 list goes on. There are so many games coming out that you are bound to find another game you will want more than Cod especially when you have been playing Cod every other day for 3 years.
I'm really hyped for this game. This is my F*cking song. New Call Of Duty: Black Ops Rap.
The game is $60, thank you very much.
I'm getting the Hardended Edition for $75 on Amazon.
This is one of a few games that's worth the admission fee. How many games do you play for more than a 100 hrs???
To count. I sold my mw2 after one week.
I played the multiplayer portion of MW2 for 470 hours before stopping. I got bored of it in February and that was when I completely retired from Modern Warfare 2 but I didn't trade it in though, it's gold. @Surt We know you're lying
Every Elder Scrolls game Every Total War game Every Civilization game Many RPGs
I will never understand all the hate for this game, sure it has it problems but pound for pound its just awesome, everybody I know just loves playing this game. Hopefully I never become so full of myself that I think I know better than millions of people whats best for them. I'd rather just be a gamer who knows what I like and lets people enjoy what they like.
then buy mario kart!
"This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Activision Publishing, Inc.." F*CK YOU KOTICK. Sorry for the lash out, but I would like to see this =/
now we know where everyones gonna camp in that map
then it should be easy to kill them, no?
And I wouldn't call it camping if it's a Sniper. Unless you want them running around quick-scoping.
i was hoping they'd take quick scoping off for this one...
Treyarch confirmed straight of hand pro has no effect on sniper riffles.
@ iHeartBoobs I am so sick of people using that lame excuse "I wouldn't call it camping if it's a Sniper" if all wannabe "snipers" just stood in the same spot to snipe its camping. A real sniper would move position so they wont get killed. So when a wannabe sniper sits on the same spot he/she is CAMPING!
why the Bitching, Are real life sniper limited to a small map....NOOOO, so in a game where they limit you in a map, there isnt that much good places to snipe In real life sniper dont usually take more than 2 shots from the same spots, but they also spends hours and day on end stalking a target to get a shot..do you want them to add that tooo?? They also have to use all of these mathematical equations to adjust the sniper rifle for the distance between the targets and the wind movement for every quarter mile or so..Do you want them to add that too??? So please stop bitching because it not like there are that much open spot to snipe in a video game, MW2 tried to fix that with Sleight of hand pro and you see how that ended, people kept complaining about quick scoping and half the players would snipe, If you are tired of getting killed by the same person from the same spot, stop going in the same direction, it pretty much common sense, if i die the same way in the same area 2 times in a row, the next time im going another direction, So for all those who bitch about a SNIPERS camping(contradiction because snipers do camp in a place for a while before taking a shot or 2) there are always solutions, you're just to stupid to think differently and go around **"You're" not necessarily meaning you Scary69, but everyone including you who complain about snipers camping
Hmm. You're quite an idiot. I don't care if you bitch about camping with other guns, but if you complain about snipers camping out? You're an idiot lol . . they have a SNIPER RIFLE. They have the right to sit it out while the other soldiers are running into battle.
Someone is obviously always getting owned by snipers. *cough*scary69*cough* _______^^^^^^^________
@Scary You're a BIG idiot. Snipers don't move in real life. Infinity Ward gets blamed for all the flaws MW2 had but I don't blame em. What's wrong with the game was the fu$king community! So, when I quickscope and kill you, you get mad but when I sit at one place and camp, you also get mad. Typical. When you suck at the game, you suck. Stop playing it then.
Dude this player didn't even zoom in all the way for some kills and got'em nice
this is old footage from an article that was posted 2 days ago.
But you forgot, it's sub85 who does this all the time. Videogameszone.de and sub85. Both should be banned. This was his first article posted a long time ago. He posts nothing but videogameszone.de articles. 90% are either flame bait or rehashed. We should seriously just get this site banned and kill 2 birds with 1 stone. http://n4g.com/news/299463/...
wow so many duplicate stories about the same videos, getting kinda boring...
I think because Activision keeps removing them from one site and other posts it.
God this horrid. the engine looks worse than mw2.on multiplayer. now look i am playing medal of honor. and im not excited about that game. as i was expecting it to be. but ive had every single cod going. im not buying this one cos nothing changed except new people that have just gone over board with this game. the pixels look cr*p. blocky in places. and as i said im not happy with MOH at the mo with some of the bugs and it also needs a facelift. but still has the edge over black'op's that being said i prefer bad company 2 over moh. im gonna close my bitching with this one last thing to say. ROLL ON KILLZONE 3 !! this year granturismo 5 march socom 4 and crysis 2.
that was a poor quality video for waht its worth. You should expect a small graphical imprvoement over MW2 with BO.
You do realize that video had horrible quality right? From all the previews I have read from people who have actually played the games, the notice in graphical and enviromental improvement is noticeable.
Also, who actually buys this game for graphics? Come on man, this game is all about addicting multiplayer.
actually i have seen all videos or at least around 9 difernt ones from HD to SD. they all look the same. the crazy perks just a run and gun.its got out of hand.
Killzone 2 was boring as $hit with controls. I just hope Killzone 3 wouldn't have that problem. MOH is bull$hit. I bought MOH: Airborne a long time ago and completed the game and the only thing I can say about the MOH series is that it is no where near COD in terms of graphics and gameplay.
The main reason I quit COD4 and havent bought a COD since is because of knifing. And when I heard they added throwing knives, I LOLed. Its not that I hate melee combat in FPS games. I just hate how it locks on and lunges you towards the person. So dumb. I am probably going to get Black Ops since I havent gotten a COD in a while, but I wish they didnt have this knifing BS.
COD4 knifing didn't suck. MW2 knifing from across the map does suck.
But hopefully more balanced tham mw2.
These videos are so stupid....How it it news? Not tryin to be a negative nancy but when there is a new video of some "AWESOME KILL!!!" video every day....It's not special
It's news when the game isn't out yet. People didn't have a problem with the same Killzone 3 demo being shown over and over again from different cameras, so I don't think new (mostly) footage being shown should be that much of an issue.
Video don't work it says deleted...:(
Black Ops is just another installation to be added to the cesspool now known as the Call of Duty series. COD4 was the best installation by far, and I am always going to stand by that statement. You had an equal and satisfactory amount of balance; however in MW2, nobody has an advantage. I think there NEEDS to be an advantage to keep the game challenging and maintainable replay value.
I wonder if theyre still gonna be retards attempting 360 noscope.anyone can do 360 without SOH.<object width="640" height="385">< param name="movie" value=" http://www.youtube.com/v/8t...
black ops looks just like a beefed up modern warfare 2, a little bit of added in costomization, and some cool modes. nothing to go crazy about. Its just another COD no matter how you look at it. 2 years from now a bigger and better cod will come, and so on. who knows maybe we'll have COD future warfare someday
I find it a bit funny how MW2 gets sook much hate. If the hacks were patched and some perk tweaks were implemented the game would be great! Black Ops sounds to me to be all this and more! Complaints I would level are maps, and unlocks....I want a crap load. I get concerned about Activision being vocal about implementing a sub service in the future. Probably after black ops, but who really knows? I wanna say they cant add this after release...it that legal? But MAG did it, but the key is it was optional.
Then part 3, and 4, and ext. The game has become a yearly product, just like madden. That's my gripe with it. If your a fan of that, then more power to you. I played mw. And that's all I needed. Mw2 blew chunks. And accesibilty? My 7 year old niece reached 1st in a match after one week! That's the accesibilty you want? Being popular doesn't make something anymore "cool" then hating that it's popular. Look at that little fairy Justin bieber.
