Why Call of Duty: Black Ops is Better Than Modern Warfare 3


"I know that the title of this article will probably incite some sort of negative response from a lot of people but I refuse to take it back.

Black Ops was a resounding success for Activision no matter how you look at the sales, but a lot of the Modern Warfare 2 fans were not so sure about it.

When Modern Warfare 3 came out the multiplayer offering was widely accepted as nothing short of amazing. Well I’m here to discuss why Black Ops actually had a better multiplayer component."

I don't know, I really like Seatown, but haven't been as impressed with other maps. The close quarter chaotic battles are my thing though.

Seatown is a great map but i think the writer has missed out on the ingenius nature of the cod dynamic. It began as a way for activision to release a cod every year. It is now the perfect ploy to keep cod the juggernaut that it is. I have read before that neither IW or Treyarch will step on each others toes. This means that they purposely go out of their way to make sure that they don't use the others ideas. Yes, the new spec ops was added for zombie fans but it isn't zombies. This dynamic has split the cod universe and guaranteed activision resounding sales every year. They are similar enough that all will buy both( for he most part), but different enough to garner fans of both. If u love zombies or aspects of black ops online, u are eagerly awaiting this years version, but u bought mw3 because it was close enough. Also, it assures us that the series doesn't move too fast. One company can try something, like the currency system without fearing abandonment. If gamers don't like it, well...the new MW will b out soon.

They are like a championship tag team. And while MW is in the ring now, as we have seen by recent sales numbers, he is getting tired quick. No worries though, because the "other" cod has his hand out waiting to get tagged. He is fresh and different, and this year, for the 1st time, his tag may come just in time.

I love Seatown too. I haven't played the Black Ops maps though. I played the Black Ops single player demo and was disappointed, so didn't buy it.

I think Black Ops is clearly better than Modern Warfare 3. I love the online multiplayer, and pretty much every map is awesome and just a blast to play on.

Game4life2282d ago

Black ops is clearly better. The only thing i think the Modern warfare franchise does better is how everything unlocks and giving you not custom emblems and titles though it would be a billion times better if they had both already made ones and custom ones that you can make

JeffGUNZ2282d ago

I think Black Ops had some really great idea, but I feel MW3 plays smoother and faster.

Blacktric2282d ago

It's like saying the poop I took last week is better than the one I took yesterday...

Tonester9252282d ago

Treyarch changes the game everytime! World at War to Black Ops to "next title" I'm sure they will innovate. Especially the first time I blew off someones legs with the double barrel on COD:WAW and ZOMBIEZ!

Drabent2281d ago (Edited 2281d ago )

WAW rocked! It was my fav and didn't lag until the very end unlike the rest that lags bad after few weeks.

Andreas-Sword2282d ago

Modern Warfare 3 is 10 times better than CoD: Black Ops!
Black Ops is the biggest shit in the CoD history!

Lazy_Sunday2281d ago (Edited 2281d ago )

MW2 was worse than MW. Black Ops was worse than MW2. MW3 was worse than Black Ops. See a connection?

...lets not even bring up [email protected], what a piece of shit that was...
The only reclaim for Treyarch's games are the Zombies, but the low frame-rate, constant nerfing and input lag is unacceptable.

Haven't played the new one, but I prefer MW2 to BO. Visuals make a lot of difference for me.

ZippyZapper2282d ago

Why when it's just the same kind of game game? Now EA will be doing the same milking as Activision with BF then MoH then BF.

BF fanboys = still whining

EmperorDalek2282d ago

Not if you're playing on consoles.

Why Battlefield 3 is better than both.


Why COD4 is better than both.

Outside_ofthe_Box2282d ago (Edited 2282d ago )

Every CoD is better than the one after it, like so:

COD4 > MW2 > Black Ops > MW3

Parapraxis2282d ago

Go back and play's painful.

andyboy132282d ago

We just won't talk about WAW then? That being said, I really hated WAW

GamingTruth2282d ago

better, and more boring your right

Why watching people say each COD rendition isn't as good as the last is getting old.

Why all COD games don't deserve the sales they get since COD4.
