Yeah, almost perfect… We just need dedicated servers for console players for it to be perfect.

Pandamobile2928d ago

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.

Macrike2928d ago

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.

DigitalAnalog2927d ago (Edited 2927d ago )

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

Baka-akaB2927d ago (Edited 2927d ago )

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

PotatoClock2927d ago (Edited 2927d ago )

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.

Baka-akaB2927d ago (Edited 2927d ago )

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.

Dave13512927d ago

I think mw2 maps are better, nobody makes call of duty better than infinity ward

Gawny2928d ago

So it seems that this is the best CoD of the franchise this generation.

SpinalRemains1382927d ago

I disagree. While it is good, nothing beats Kessarine on COD2.

Razmossis2927d ago

Umm, CoD4?
Nothing has made more impact this gen.
And the maps are infinitly better than the rest

BYE2927d ago

Yeah probably.

The best COD overall though was COD1. That Stalingrad scene was intense.

frostypants2927d ago (Edited 2927d ago )

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?

JacobIsHollywood2927d ago





There are opinions...and then there is right and wrong. You guys are wrong.

no_more_trolling2927d ago

thats ur opinion

see what i did there?

frostypants2927d ago (Edited 2927d ago )

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.

4lenangel2927d ago

The story was the best out of all the CODs.

frostypants2927d ago (Edited 2927d ago )

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.

TekoIie2927d ago (Edited 2927d ago )

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...

Panthers2927d ago

COD4 had a great SP too. And the online was soooo fun. I like this game too, but COD4 was better I think

-MoOkS-2927d ago (Edited 2927d ago )

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

frostypants2927d ago

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.

calitax2928d ago

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.

MajestieBeast2927d ago

Love the game except for campers and lag.
