In spite of the current connection issues pending to amendment, Treyarch has completed an almost perfect multiplayer experience. It is better than Modern Warfare 2 and delivers a lot of improvements.
Yeah, almost perfect… We just need dedicated servers for console players for it to be perfect.
COD is too big on consoles for Treyarch to support with dedicated servers. I mean if there's over two million people playing at the same time on XBL, that's ~140,000 servers that they have to host maintain. At least on PC, the servers are run and maintained by gamers, so it makes a bit more sense for dedicated servers on the PC side of things.
True, but it's not like as if Activision is poor. I mean, they've just made $360 million in 24 hours. Surely it doesn't cost that much to maintain servers for console players, specially when other games offer them like Battlefield or Killzone, for example. Just my two cents.
Activision is the last company on this planet to complain about dedicated servers. What about that OTHER biggest title they own... you know.. WOW? -End statement
I dont think you really should be asking for them . However rich a publisher might be , it's a huge cost . They didnt get rich by making huge expense at our benefits If you were given this feat , they certainly would start charging for online
Uhhhh, I don't think WOW uses 140,000 servers. Its significantly less than that, and players fund that server cost. Acti would and do complain about dedicated servers, hence MW2 giving PCs no server support, even though it would be outta gamers pockets.
mm nothing surprising , but disagree for what ? Everyone would like dedicated servers for each game .. but we all know big publishers are getting greedier ... they dont spend money without the hope of investment return With that amount of greed , dedicated servers will disappear from consoles , and if coming back , it's obviously with an extra cost , subcription or not .
Would be great if Regional Matchmaking would actually work, here in the UK we don't exactly consider Italy as 'Local' RC car is annoying too
I believe it is a lot better than Mw2 but I can't stand the constant frame drops when i'm playing MP, the map design is almost as good as CoD4 IMO and I love the leveling system. I haven't really experienced any glitches that I know of but if they don't do something about the frame-rate i'll be selling this game within a month.
I think mw2 maps are better, nobody makes call of duty better than infinity ward
So it seems that this is the best CoD of the franchise this generation.
I disagree. While it is good, nothing beats Kessarine on COD2.
Umm, CoD4? Nothing has made more impact this gen. And the maps are infinitly better than the rest
Yeah probably. The best COD overall though was COD1. That Stalingrad scene was intense.
COD 1 also had some awesome MP maps. There was one in particular that was a nighttime battle in and around a German estate/manor that I wish they'd bring back. LOVED that map. Come to think of it, why are all the MP maps in recent COD games always in daylight?
No. No. No. NO!!! There are opinions...and then there is right and wrong. You guys are wrong.
thats ur opinion see what i did there?
Jacob, none of the issues it has are un-patchable. And even when I get frustrated with it (as I did last night)...right now, I desperately want to play it. That's the mark of a good game.
The story was the best out of all the CODs.
The story is a big point of contention I think. People either love it or hate it. I think it's because it's both very dark and a bit of a mind-bender, with the jumping around, the drugged protagonist, and the conspiracies. Some people hate that kinda thing. I'm a big fan of anything that screws with my head a little. I think the story is light years better than either of the MW games. MW plots were like a Michael Bay film. Black Ops' plot feels more like a Chris Nolan film, if Chris Nolan made a war movie.
I think that OVERALL this is the best COD of the generation SP actually had a good story for once and no one can say if the MP if is good or bad yet since no one has really exploited any overpowered weapons yet so gotta wait a month or 2 for that...
COD4 had a great SP too. And the online was soooo fun. I like this game too, but COD4 was better I think
its not even close to cod4, thats a classic. its not even better than cod2, its better than mw2 and waw though, thats for sure
It's a better game than most anticipated, I'd say. I do have a conspiracy theory that disgruntled IW devs are astroturfing Amazon with bad reviews though. Sounds ridiculous, but I've never seen so many unreasonably hateful and ill-conceived "opinions".
Fix the lag,give us dedicateed servers,fix the party system,glitches and then i will buy your game ubtil then no buy.
This game has sold 7 million units in just one day. I think that there is a parameter to consider. It's November 11th, 2 days after release. Just a little bit of patience to receive reasonable corrections.
Love the game except for campers and lag.
Whoa whoa whoa... There's no way you guys are serious. That campaign was terrible! The multi-player is a noobfest! The zombie mode is...alright. I honestly believe you guys are playing a joke on me.
Well, if we consider that the most of the websites are reviewing the games as AAA, maybe your comment is nearer to a joke. It seems like if people worlwide are wrong less you.
true but they always review the franchise as AAA , even for the not so good episodes
If everyone followed the masses blindly, we'd elect a complete tool into office. Oh wait...
Uh, if you think THIS multiplayer is a noobfest, then you hated both MW games, because this one addresses the biggest noob-problems those had. Noob tubers and rocket-wh**es have become far less effective, quick scoping is no longer an issue...it's just better, unless you LIKED such lame tactics. In which case you can always fall back on MW2. I do think the remote controlled cars are a bit much and should become a 4-kill streak, but I'm sure they will address that.
If anyone has a spare Killzone3 beta code that works:) pm me:)
just take out the noob tubing,thats the worst thing invented,the lobby i was in yesterday made me quit out as host,these guys were 30 plus on the ranking system noobing, i mean how sad can you go.one other thing how did i get 21000 thousand kills at level 25 its nice and all,but [email protected] i have not seen that many players let alone kill them
the stats are messed up bigtime. I have 9,000 assists and about 40k kills. I have played alot... but not that much !!!
The hit detection has got to be fixed. The amount of times ive sprayed and sprayed only for them to run around the corner like nothings happened, Every gun i get i have to purchase extended mags cause it takes half a clip to down 1 person, Completely ruins the experience. Spawning system is poor. What about the leaderboards??? 1 minute im on 7000 kills 2 days later im on 180,000 kills, I only play for like two hours a day max as i work. All in all the games core gameplay is broken. Fair enough MW2 had glitches and unfair perks but its core gameplay was up to par. Maybe its just my Ps3 version cause if it wern't i would be emmbarrased if i was treyarch
mw2's core gameplay was up to par ? Even without the technical issues such as bugs , it was an unbalanced mess . I dont care much for BO , but it's definitively an improvement
Yes it was up to par. When i shot someone it registered, When i stabbed someone it registered. The core gameplay did what is was suppose to do. When i shoot someone in black ops all i get is hit markers then there down, Not to mention the hit and miss knifing. Improvement in some areas it may be but its still a broken game, Nothing more, Nothing less
wow, get a life. 7000 kills already? you must play 24/7
Did you even bother read my post before? did u not see me state there is a issue with the leaderboards stats? Can you even read? You need to get an education cause clearly your having trouble understanding plain simple english
I've only been noob tubed twice in 14 hours online. For me this is the second best COD after Modern warfare 1. Having a lot of fun with it, mainly because they balanced it so well and the maps are the best I've seen in any COD.
Yeh noob tubes are no longer overpowered. I think they lowered the radius and on top of that flak jacket just weakens them more. I like this COD and it is the best this generation.
I say go go go zombies!! Zombies are the best thing from COD7, and this time they admit split-screen cooperative online!! :D
the game on PS3? Yeah, it's perfect, except for lag, respawn point all fucked up, audio bug, tuned down graphic, a broken party system, mic don't work correctly, your Ps3 will freeze 4 time out of 5. Yeah, it's perfect.
OOOOH someone hates the franchise a lot. Either that or your just unlucky dude, the game hasnt done any of the stuff you said it does for me...
call of duty, i have a clan since 2005 for any cod. But this COD is a major letdown. You are lucky if you don't have problem but try to take a look at the official forum and see how many people subscribe just to make a complaint. BTW, I'm not complaining about the game itself, but the problem it has. It's a remarkable game but filled with problem. And this make me mad even more.
I will only buy it when they fix bugs! Hope they do it before GT5 release, then i will not need Black ops for sure
Call of Duty 2 (PC) has a better multiplayer :)
I thought the campaign was amazing , nice twist to it like a movie or something lol , the online is good , i have experienced lag occasionally but thats bound to happen every now and then with 2 million people online , i think i played mw2 to much cause the onlines gonna take some getting use to , its not so run and gun , well it is but you tend to die more my rating 9.7/10 but ide give that to mw2 aswell as i love modern combat games just my opinion happy gaming.
Cassino and Peaks!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bet you next CoD is not as good as this ;)
