Cries of bias incoming. Roll on November.

Some scans would be nice :)

Scans are illegal, unfortunately. D=

Haha, you think that will stop people uploading them? Give it 24 hours.

Call of Duty's taking the form of an annual sports game and frankly I see nothing wrong with that, it's all about competitive multiplayer, it's what keeps the hundreds of thousands of players all around the globe coming back to challenge each other, I don't see any difference between this, Fifa, NBA & Madden when it comes to the principles of competitive play. People have no problem supporting those games even though they have minor changes each year, Call of Duty IS regarded as a sport FPS imo.

So the people moaning about "bot this ze same as teh game frum last yeeahr lulz sheeps!1" should just suck it up. It will break records, people will love it, it'll sell by the millions, every company thinks twice before releasing anything close to its deadline, every publisher wants a piece of the Call of Duty pie so they tack-on a copy-paste MP in their games to attract its crowds.

It's not merely an FPS anymore since COD4 as much as the addictive MP and the countless hours of competition it offers.

@Winter
Maybe you should accept other people's opinions. A lot of people don't like CoD and I'm not a big fan of it myself. Since 4, it has been going down hill year on year, unlike Fifa which is on the rise. I don't find the multiplayer particulary entertaining. Not enough team work and too much glitching. Also, Treyarch don't have a great record. Maybe they can change that this time round.

Hydrolex4986d ago

God ! Moh was a joke, I cant believe they tried to compete with Cod

acky14986d ago (Edited 4986d ago )

As gamers, we shouldn't stand for yearly instalments of games that change little in their gameplay and graphics.

Sport games could and should just release dlc every other year to update the database of players cos that's the only difference from the previous version really.

I really don't understand why people are willing to pay full price for something which hasn't changed from last time round.

The only thing tempting me to buy this one is the splitscreen online cos everything else I can get from cod4.

so is pirating and murder but people still do it

You know what's absolutely hilarious? Starcraft is a bigger sport than all of those, and they only just made their second game. Calling COD a sport is honestly a joke. There's no point in making a yearly release for a "sport FPS". In 2005, over 120,000 people were in a stadium... for a Starcraft championship. That's a sport. It's called making an amazing, deep game, but the COD devs are always too focused on gimmicks and such that it'll never be that way, since they're extremely focused on pleasing the casuals now.

Activision just wants their money, simple as that.

Stoney

he didn't call it a sport, he said its becoming like an annual sport game meaning there one released every year now
which goes a long with that last part of your comment

Still waiting on the real reviews with a new game, like always.

PS360fanboy4986d ago

Were you expecting anything less than 5/5 for both single and multiplayer?!

Yeah, me neither. If there's one thing these guys are good at is devilering an outstanding FPS experience.

Can't wait to get my hands on it!

acky14986d ago

In this instance I really think the name is getting the score and not the game.

SonyPS3604986d ago

I think you're both wrong. Wait for real reviews first.

Jamegohanssj54986d ago

Fake review. This game is a 2/5 at best.

chilled2m4986d ago

Wow. As of now, five of you actually agree with this idiotic comment?
How can this be anything else but trolling? The game hasn't even come out yet and this kid is talking 2/5..

Ah well, one less person to have to worry about come November 9th

Jamegohanssj54986d ago

Who in the fuck wants to play the same god damn game that gets released year after year after year? You bitches complain aboot Activision and you say you're done buying their games yet every fall you end of buying one. You're all fucking idiots.

YOU MAD lol

PS360fanboy4986d ago

Who wants to Play God of War? I don't know, you tell me!

gtamike4986d ago (Edited 4986d ago )

Black Ops does not look like a big change from cod4/mw2 it looks more like a mod only.

Now this is a big change

getonmylev3l4986d ago (Edited 4986d ago )

I really don't see a big change bruh. still looks fuckin amazing though

Edit: (comment is about your video)

gamer81794986d ago

Figures that people already have it set in their mind that this is a bad game. Why not wait untill it comes out and play it for yourself with a open mind. Then you can give a honest opinion. Don't be a dumbass and claim that this is just like mw2. Its call of duty, of course its going to look a little like mw2. Look at how Uncharted 2 looks like Uncharted 1. But most people agree that Uncharted 2 is much superior. Why not just give black ops a fair chance

AEtherbane4986d ago

Black Ops looks fun. I find it ironic that i was never really excited for MWF2, but im excited for this.
