Why Black Ops’ multiplayer will be better than Modern Warfare 2′s

Play magazine takes a look at five ways in which Call Of Duty: Black Ops' mutliplayer could actually improve upon that of the already excellent Modern Warfare 2. (Call of Duty: Black Ops, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I just hope it's better than COD4.

I can't really say it's better then COD4 right now but it's much better then MW2!
Raf1k1  +   1918d ago
CoD4 is still the best one I've played and I'd be surprised if it's better than that. I'm waiting on user reviews before I decide to pick it up.

COD4 might be a little much
but MW2 shouldn't be a problem. Got on a little bit tonight. Can't really start ranking up until the weekend. All you guys that don't have to work and go to school are lucky! :(

i like the way it control and shoot
but going straightt from mw2 multiplayer to black ops multiplayer
black ops looks really cartoonish.. it just seems kinda rushed to me as far as graphics go
i only played for about 5 mins so it too soon to say which one i think is better

It's laggy during multiplayer.

Because in Black Ops
There is not NUKE

Played it today for a hour and so far it blows away MW2 ! Balancing so good and the map lay out are great ! I'll play more tonight when I get home

Yea it feels a lot more balanced. The games are not one-sided...yet. Hope the AK-74 doesn't turn into the UMP.
SkylineR  +   1918d ago
Yeah it's pretty good. I hate that map with the 50's houses and mannequins as spawn killing gets out of hand. That's prob the only unbalanced map so far imo.
chriski333  +   1918d ago
much better
I only played 2 hours as of now but going home and jumping on black ops is so much better then MW2 the maps are awsome very nice and the guns r great plus no boosting or commando pro very great game

I gotta say the lag and party system is broken. After one game you cant even back out with the entire team. I like the game, but these problems need to be fixed.

The multiplayer does look improved
But on a side note, does anyone else think the character Alex Mason's name sounds a bit FAMILIAR?... *cough*Volition*cough*

the multiplayer is weak its not better than mw2 u can feel it right when u start it just dont got that same caliber as mw2
Mikeyy  +   1917d ago
While I agree the game "feels" Way different, I think it's for the better. They got rid of everything that was cheap about MW2.

My only complaint so far is that they butchered sniper Rifles. And I'm not talking about Quickscopes, I don't do that. But it's treyarch we are talking about, they have a history of being willing to listen and patch there games with user feedback. So I'm not going to cry about it yet.

The most refreshing thing is the bottom line, the game is harder, it's going to attract all the core COD fans back that quit after MW2.
nano88  +   1918d ago
it is what it is
they fuck up with this game point blank case close
cyborg6971  +   1918d ago
Go get your ged dude.
EliteAssassin81  +   1918d ago
Then go play mw2 with all the cheaters then.
nano88  +   1918d ago
nah eliteassasin81 u mean go play halo reach with out the cheaters yeah i will and u have fun with weakops
mrbillybadass  +   1918d ago
Personally think your wrong.
The amount of customization is awesome. The money bit is awesome. The balance is much better. The only thing black ops is behind MW2 is maybe graphics everything else>>>>. I must say they did a great job with this game IMHO and this is coming from a huge activision/COD hater.

Love the tomahawk, and balistic knife.

You dont need a submission like this.
When anyone who has played Black Ops (just took a 4 hour break) can tell you, Wager Matches are like Treyarch said "pure adrenaline rushes", really fun! Normal multiplayer is a bit slow at the start since you have to conserve your money, zombies are still awesome, so overall this is....the perfect COD, barely any campers and if they are you can easily spot them at the same time they spot you and kill them, and after around 20 games I only found ONE game with a noob tuber, and the tube has been nerfed a good amount, not useless but not a fucking instant death from above, using flak jacket perk (every useful with all the grenades) makes them feel like one bullet to an arm or leg.

So anyone reading this, get this game and prepare to pull a constant all nighter!
