With Call Of Duty Black Ops coming out next week its hard not to get swept up in all the excitement however what if it sucks?
Is that even possible? (Sarcasm)
it will still sell millions, get "10/10" from all sites and have millions of a$$holes ruining the experience of modest gamers...
It will just be Modern Warfare 2 all over again, good in the beginning and then sucked hard, after glitches were found and updates sucked.. -but there are a few reason why this one will not suck, it looks like it will have an amazing campaign.. It will also have zombie Mode which is almost impossible to mess up.. -and they said they went back to COD4 style instead of MW2 style so the game should be good, if true. but if it sucks then people will say it sucks and it will not do the numbers MW2 did, and we will accept this burn and move on, and never buy a COD game again. So a lot is riding on this.. Let's keep our fingers Crossed. Also can't wait to see what Respawn is going to do. (you know they have to be watching this release closely) .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
It won't suck. CoD never disapoints. Not even [email protected]
People still may think it sucks as the PS3 split screen log in thing was a failure. I still think we should protest against that.
I love how it's become the "cool" thing to hate on Call of Duty. I call it the Justin Beiber effect. When something/someone becomes insanely popular, tons of people hate on it for no particular reason. The funny thing about it all is, you haters will still buy it and play the hell out of it. Modern Warfare 2 had some flaws, sure, but it was definitely not a bad game. It was a victim of it's own popularity in the sense that so many people played it that bugs were found more easily than for less popular titles. That coupled with the fact that Infinity Ward had a complete meltdown in the time that bug fixing patches would have been released.
MW 2 is hated for a very good reason.
How can it sucks? Every COD game is the same game but with a couple of improvements, like the yearly sport series, every year the same game and they always get good scores and millions of people buys them.
a game can easily be ruined without balance
There was never any balance. Your team could lose by over 3000 points in a team deathmatch and the game will put all the same people back on the teams they were on before.
@tazz92.. You only lose if you play stupid. Me n my squad went on a 300 legit game winning streak, before we all started to get annoyed by how stupid mw2 was. You just need some co-ordination and good team members. Just find another 5 guys, and play together and you will become hard to beat.
I thing that is getting old, is that COD Games have an AI very simple, very, very Arcade. They should add a bit of more simulation and flexibility, more intelligent like Killzone 2, and less Arcade and linear AI.
you havnt been watching the interviews have you??? sigh... look up on their russian ai...
Thats true but I wouldn't use Killzones dumbass AI's as a good example. As much as I'd hate to say, but, Halo: Reach's AI's are the smartest this generation. Thats IF you've actually played the game or not.
Clearly you haven't played Killzone 2 on Elite mode, is incomparable with Halo Reach AI. K3 is even getting a better design on AI, which is more impressive.
The A.I in Reach is far more aggressive and adaptive than anything I've seen or played in the killzone series. Why on the site must Killzonne get trumpeted around like the greatest FPS of the last 10 years? It's not true. It's an exceptional game but it hasn't done anything groundbreaking. Crysis blew my mind before KZ2, Halo is one of the most influential modern Fps and COD 4 set the fps archetype for the past 3 years.
was very average at best
"Killzone AI was very average at best" Someone that never played KZ2 spotted.
@ raztad PS3 fanboy spotted, try reading Chuk5's post he is dead on. It's funny cause people on any site but this one do not slobber all over that game. It' AI was not that great and you know it, it was decent. Then again how hard is it to have decent AI in a tiny corridor shooter. Game is so overrated. Loved your comment yesterday in the crysis 2 forum " killzone has the best gun play of any game" LOL!
Good thing your team didn't play against me,that legit game winning streak would've came to an end. lol
I was just about to type the exact same thing. Ridiculous games. Call Of Duty 4 Was amazing when it first came out. Infinity Ward then rejected an offer to create a new engine due to lazyness and instead made tons of more games using the same old one.
Well is just like you said, people wanna play a different version of their favorite game. Let be honest, people are playing more shooting games now thanks to cod and besides I'm a cod fan ( not MW2 lol ) i hope BO delivers what MW2 didn't
Then there'll be more people on KZ3 to play with.
you mean Killzone 2.5?
Dude that is lame >.>
I dont think you can defend a COD game by calling something else by the old ".5".
You'd have 150 012 people online
Have you ever consider that more than half of those players are cheating or using glitches to their advantage
I'll still be playing KZ3 even if Black Ops is awesome.
"You can stop trolling now. I'd tell you to continue if it were funny, true, or both, but it's neither so time for you to move on."
Looks like you also don't know what trolling is. Who said I was going to skip out on Black Ops?
Is not the game going to suck, and it never happened to MW2 (well, not at all). Is the damn community that is glitching, massive camping and a lot of noobs with the ridiculous perks, from MW2 they will move to Black Ops. So, yeah, is going to suck, thanks to this kind of players. And the single player, I don't know, still, people will buy this game for the multiplayer as MW2, not for the Campaign.
it will suck... eventually
Ha, thats not really something I'm worried about. It's not going too.
I suppose that people will do what they did to MW2, play it anyways lol
It won't suck.
At its most base level, Call of Duty is a lazy, horrid piece of design (sigleplayer). So yes, it's guaranteed to suck on that front.
could you care to prove how the SP has a horrid design??? I enjoyed SP and am considering calling you a troll for not giving a good reason as to why the SP sucks
I'd say SP is terrible because of it's uninteresting characters and story, the completely linear and scripted singleplayer and the infinite spawns until you move forward mechanic (although I think they've rectified that last one). Also the terrible auto aim AI that always knows where you are, which basically doesn't allow you to sneak around unless they've scripted the level to play that way.
The masses will still dick ride it because it has Call, Of and Duty in the name.
if i recall MW2 at first did not have "call of duty" slapped onto it and it was the highlight of last year...
Highlight of last year? According to who? Wasn't the highlight of my gaming year in 2009. Uncharted 2 and Street Fighter IV were. And what do you mean 'at first'. The game is called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It's on the damn game box. Even if it wasn't at first, the game as it exists now has Call of Duty in it. No?
It has zombies so it can't suck. :P
This article is shorter than most rants on N4G. Is that really all you had to say?
lol the rest will be available as a downloadable content, fuck this gen
just wanted to see what you guys thought, im not hear to rip apart a game
hmm to each their own, but I think you played it a little safe to protect yourself from flames :D
If it sucks, I'll be like :( Then I'll go back to Metal Gear Online, where it's me who sucks and not the game.
then it sucks... simple as that. BUT it dosen't look like it will suck though. same goes with killzone 3, it looks so stunning. will be playing these 2 fps games for a looooong time.
Why Do People Get So Excited Over Zombie Mode
It'll suck to CoD haters (for no reason at all, but to be honest, they don't know what they're missing) and those who love zombies would just give it a 10/10 just cause there are zombies, which is stupid. But fanboys will near enough love it. Besides, nearly every Call of Duty game has been awesome, and Treyarch haven't exactly failed yet. It would be a shock if it sucked.
COD3 says "hello."
clockback says "nearly every call of duty game"
Of course it sucks. It's a recycled/milked series. If you've played one then you've played them all.
Isn't that the same with most IP anyways? Or rather, since we're on the topic of shooters... with any FPS game in general since the vast majority are just clones? The core elements of the game might be the same, but Trey has added quite a bit of new elements onto the game. Isn't that how a series is supposed to go?
Releasing a COD every year, is just milking. And the multiplayer is just getting worse, even with new features.
There will always be haters. I found out that, people who SUCK at the game and constantly get killed will hate the game, like with MW2. Where as someone like me, who is good at the game and always has a good match, still enjoys MW2 and surpasses all of the cracks and glitches. It's a game, it aint heaven, a game can never be perfect. Just stop whining and play it, if not, sell it and never mention it. Why waste your life, on a game you ARNT playing. Simply by crying about it.
it's the most played and easiest fps to pick up .. stop giving yourself and your skills , however great or not they truly are , that much importance . From what we usually see , some of the complaints are actually from people who wants somthing less cheap and easy . Besides , "whining about people whining" isnt even 1% better .
is that it is supposed to be semi-realistic but it is not at all. How can someone lunge with a knife from roughly twenty feet away whilst getting shot in the face and kill you with one knife stab? WTF is up with that? It should take two melees from the front and you should have to be within five feet. How the hell can a soldier that is geared up with a rocket launcher on their back infinitely sprint around a map at break-neck speeds with akimbo weapons? The game is based in reality hence MODERN warfare, but there is nothing realistic about it at all except for some of the weapon characteristics. Sniper rifles are a joke in the game, unless Black Ops truly gets rid of "quick-scoping." I don't suck at the game either, it is just ludicrous how the game was made. It's as if the developers said "Hmmm, how can we make it to where we reward the most annoying players in our game?" And then proceeded to make a game around that. "Oh yeah, and let's reward the good players with an unfair advantage to even further their lead so the other team has no chance in hell of catching up." "Sounds great, and while were at it, lets let people use infinite one man army so they can noob tube the entire match." Game was broken from the start. I got it on launch waited 4 hours in line had a decent time for a month, then got tired of it really fast due to the severely unbalanced gameplay, and the rewarding of annoying players. The game rewards campers with a Nuke for jeebus sakes.
basically what all the people do on the x360. play those same 3 games that x360 only got thats exclusive and act hyped and act like they are some sort of gamer when they are just lemmings. As long as a 8 million people buy the game and play it even though it sucks people will call it good because its the cool "in" thing to do.
They may as well just create a chopper or plane game, because that is exactly what every round turns into. Guys running inside because the entire round has that annoying buzzing sound. Gay. Stick to shooting guys with rifles and such. Killstreaks seriously gimp the experience. Why not give each class a special ability like it used to be? Why reward a plane in a video game? I dont get why you guys love it so.
If it sucks, I'll know I was right all along. I'm tired of this damn franchise, can't they move on to something else? At least Treyarch does, Infinity Ward sits on it's ass waiting for their turn at the franchise.
stop giving this stupid site hits.
man, this is the WORST article i've ever tried to read. the sentences were confusing, and it was about as long as a COD campaign(very very short). Who approves this crap? what a stupid article there is always a chance for every game to suck. The good thing is every gamer has different taste in games so what sucks to me is someone elses favorite game. believe it or not some people actually like quantum theory...just saying
I have no faith at all in this game Treyarch hasnt made 1 good game before and they are controlled by Activision who ruined Infinity ward and MW 2 in the first place. WAW was glitchy, ugly unpolished and very unispired. And seeing that BO is so simialar to earlier IW games (Cut n paste for the win) gameplay wise and from a technical standpoint and also manages to be so much rougher in some departements is just incredible. I I highly doubt this game can be any good. Damn Activision. :/ Ill wait for some reviews before Ill make my final word though.
People complain how every CoD game sucks but they stay playing it. Everyone on my friends list complain about MW2, yet everyday 24/7 they're playing it. If they really didn't like it, they would stop playing it (just like I did.)
Its not gonna suck its gonna be Delicious becasue treyarch is going for tht COD4 feel and all the dumb perks like commando,one man army,and danger close will not be in here. also the game has certain killstreaks that can seek out campers(RC car with C4)it has less perks so it can be more balanced and they said that quickscoping will not be in here plus ZOMBIES!! and a fantastic SP its bound to be good.....i hope if not ill still be delicious
many players are pissed at MW2 cause of no patches of the things that made the damm game unbalanced, aimbots, increased autoaim, danger close perk commando perk, the over use of the ump is ridiculous, quick scoping (though i can deal with that but still quickscoping plus increased auto aim way to much rarely the miss), boosting, the camping, so my thought this is the chance for them to prove themself , if it ends up like MW2, then people will not buy more of this crap games at least i will not buy them, if it goes well in black ops then ill buy only treyarch games thats it.
