With the reveal trailer showing off the game's new futuristic overtones, how well will the game resonate with gamers?
Im very ify with it. I loved the first black ops. I loved the characters and the setting and now they have taken that and completely changed just about everything... but that doesnt mena i wont still like the game its just now im unsure:/
I think BOps2 needed its own identity to scale itself away from Modern Warfare or past glories set in WWII. The only way to go really was forwards and this is what we've got. Personally I would have been quite happy to stay within the Cold War setting of the last game though.
It seems the only logical way Treyarch could move things forward, as they've dominated past wars, Modern Warfare has current affairs covered. Black Ops was Treyarch's big turnaround after being the underdogs of developers on the COD franchise, so it's good to see them continue on with Black Ops' characters, whilst also moving thing dramatically forward. It'll be interesting to see how this future based tech impacts the COD multiplayer space as well, right now it just looks like typical Call of Duty clashing with the likes of the techier savvy Ghost Recon Future Soldier.
For the first time in a while I'm really quite looking forward to a Call of Duty game, and that's largely because of the change in setting. Now, don't freak, I'm not saying I hate the series, but I simply didn't get excited about them. The change in year gives Treyarch a little more freedom in how they create the game. Because it's still within our forseeable future there are limitations, but with less constraints I'm hopeful that it'll give them the chance to change the series for the better and provide something a little different.
I'm not a fan of CoD at all, but I did love [email protected]'s zombie mode. I skipped MW2, BO, and MW3, but was gonna buy this one just for killing zombies... until I saw the trailer. Now I doubt I'll buy it, but I'll keep an eye on it and see if I change my mind.
"futuristic" lol in 2006 maybe.
The game is set in 2025 i.e the future. fu·tur·is·tic (fych-rstk) adj. 1. Of or relating to the future. 2. a. Of, characterized by, or expressing a vision of the future: futuristic decor. b. Being ahead of the times; innovative or revolutionary: futuristic computer software. 3. Of or relating to futurism. Sigh.
you know how to use google, good for you.
Better than you know how to use humour, evidently.
No reason to get mad at him just because your joke makes no damn sense.
I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a fan of Call of Duty, but I did enjoy the campaign of Black Ops. The Cold War is a really unexplored medium that has so much to offer. Even though I don't like the multiplayer, I do get a kick out of the singleplayer parts. Yeah, they're Michael Bay/24 explosion orgies, but it's entertaining to me to see Russia and the US fight. Or it was...there really needs to be a new boogeyman. Anyway, I'm extremely disappointed that they've moved to the future (by the way, I immediately thought of BF2142 when I saw the mechs) and away from the Cold War. Normally, I get a little intrigued by the release trailers for Call of Duty, but this time I literally didn't register one feeling of anticipation. Call of Duty needs to innovate, not add more flashy guns and WTF moments. Horses? Seriously?
The game is taking place in the real world Past Cold War that we already experienced and the 2025 New Cold War to contrast the differences in warfare. It's actually a good idea and I'll judge it once I play for myself.
nope you must hate it and say you love the ps3
