We take a look at Call of Duty: Black Ops and the changes Treyarch is making. Is it going to change the online experience? Will it make it more fair? Are players still going to get fed up? Take a look and find out.
I really hope the online is a lot more fair
hope so too
This version is all about rushing around with an MP5 again.. It seems the snipers are practically useless ¬.¬" The maps are all short range close cornered things =/ The Dragunov is back though atlest ^_____^
Not with the ninja perk and snipers not having sleight of hand pro.
snipers not having sleight of hand pro is extremely fair.. it made quickscoping extremely over powered and removed all amounts of skill it actually took in cod2/cod4/waw
@ almostpro Snipers no longer have shotguns as secondary so they cant defend themselves. Quick scoping was the most effective way to defend yourself without having to switch weapons. So with that gone then snipers have to rely on pistols or no scoping. Those ways are not very good for defending yourself against the likes of a MP5 or M16. Also none of the maps in call of duty are sniper friendly unlike medal of honor, battlefield, etc... So snipers will be even more useless in black ops.
When you have cheaters online will never be fair.
I'm not big on either of Treyarch's COD attempts but I think this time they copied enough from other games and wrapped into all into one game that will be the defining FPS of this console generation. Time will tell though
they are doing it right this time, only time will tell... hope it's cheater free this time.
nothings cheater free, but atleast theres no more boosting :)
ye MW:2 had way too many cheater
This will be the same. Same console, same people, just as many cheaters if not more.
What's it matter? I've given up on this series. It's just gotten SOOOO boring.
Im not sure if multiplayer will be balanced, i mean remember before MW2 was released and we saw those trailers of the knife throwing and semtex's and everyone was like woow awesome bla bla!, but it seems thats what the RC car will be like. Im not sure what the other killstreaks are. but i can imagine the RC car ruining the multiplayer if everyone can get it after 3-4 kills. but like everyone is saying time will tell, the beta footage we have seen makes it seem the multiplayer is fun and balanced.
Thats one problem with peoples thoughts.. mw2 was so bad everyones now saying "remember mw2" "mw2 sucked etc." it seems like people are forgetting its different developers.. personally i dont think the RC-CAR will be that overpowered.. i mean yeah it doesnt take many kills but its not an insane killstreak.. the explosion range is pretty short so its not often it will get multiple enemies.. and when it gets one person its basically the same as being killed by a frag or semtex excpet you need to gt 3 kills in a row to use it.. and while you use it your leaving yourself open to being killed :) thats why im not so worried
I just got into thé séries so im looking forward to online and thé réduction of noobs and cheaters
Obligatory *yawn* post.
Meh after watching a few COD:BO and Killzone 3 beta videos online, all i have to say is, why the fuck are people so excited about this 2007 rehash? Killzone 3 smokes this turd with intense processing on screen. Third party games are a joke and this title proves it. Sheep will forever be sheep and the wise will forever be rewarded with real technical masterpieces. Man this series sucks. Last good release was COD4.
At this moment in time Activision could get a big pile of steaming s**t slap "Call of Duty: Steaming s**t" on it and it would sell millions. And yes all the review sites would eat it up.
ye no matter what this game is gonna sell insane amounts of copies
It's called unwarranted success. The COD series needs to die for a while. A long while.
I got fed up with MW2 after a month, it was less shooting and more automated death from above.
After it is all said and done this game will be a carbon copy of CoD:MW2 and so on and so on for the next few years.
Killstreaks no longer add to killstreak count - check Sleight of Hand Pro no longer works with sniper rifles - check Commando is gone - check Marathon is no longer infinite - check Ballistic knife is a secondary weapon - check Shotguns are primary weapons again - check Warlord (Bling) and Scavenger no longer work with grenade launcher attachments - check Weapons and equipment are now purchasable with currency - check Chopper gunner is better balanced - check Weapons have more recoil - check Wager matches (with interesting game modes) - check Better customization - check Closed beta - check I would say that Treyarch is definitely making all the right moves. I was really disappointed with MW2 multiplayer (loved Special Ops though). I am looking forward to Black Ops.
Another thing that looks to be good is the new killstreaks, some of them pulled from world at war like the dogs (bloody terrifying) and some very interesting looking new ones like the two mega guns aptly named "death machine" and "grim reaper" one is a huge chaingun,and the other is a grenade launcher of some description. They both come in little care packages...AWESOME
They should just leave it to infinity
