10 Reasons I Love and Hate Call of Duty: Black Ops

Think James Bond, only throw out parkour in favor of carpet bombing and gadgets for gunplay. That's Treyarch's fictional take on the Cold War with Black Ops as it drops players into the shadows around the world to fight the Soviets.

It also has a lot of expectations to live up to following Modern Warfare 2.

The story is too old to be commented.

lol you cant do local search on the PS3! Pathetic, but is what to be expected with the PS3.

"is what to be expected with the ps3??"

Yes it is to be expected since nearly all multiplats are gimped on the PS3!! Is that not a fact?!?!?! Yes it is so take your troll accusations elsewhere, you fail.

"lol you cant do local search on the PS3!"

Cevapi882988d ago

trolling the PS3 with a game that has had these issues since MW2

good one troll

Anorexorcist2988d ago (Edited 2988d ago )

I could honestly name a few right off the top of my head that were equal or superior on Playstation 3, but your head is so far up your a$$ that you wouldn't care to pull your head out into the light and accept it anyway.

Local search does'nt help. It's not down to the connection. Well at least not for me. Alot of people say it's down to the amount of 'Friends data' being exchanged e.g. leaderboard stats and emblems/playercards. When you play on an account without friends the lag is non existant. But who want's to play without their mates?

iPlayGamez2988d ago

no when i made a new account (with zero friends) on MW2 i still had alot of lag even on a really good 15mbps connection, my MW2 account with 100 friends had way less lag (on MW2) then my BOPS account with like 40 friends (on BOPS). my point is that the lag is treyarch's fault.

Ace Killa 082988d ago

what does friend have to do with this? im just asking since your giving me the assumption that more friends on ps3 = more lag

Redrum0592988d ago (Edited 2988d ago )

i gotta admit, the sound quality is utter bullshit.

i play with my turtlebeach headset with the bass turned all the way up. why is it that the gunfire still lacks bass and power to them?
my freaking AK47 sounds like popcorn.

well i guess its all the compression due to DVD9.

Terror_B2988d ago

Troll. That was a piss poor swipe at the 360 talking about compression. Its COD for gods sake, the guns have always sounded like cap guns, its the exact same on the PS3.

ambientFLIER2988d ago

Uh, COD4 and MW2 have pretty good gun sounds, compared to Black Ops.

jeseth2988d ago

Everythomg about this game is either a step back or side step.

THe only thing I applaud is taking out BS perks and attachments in online mode.

Other than that, Black Ops is the worst COD this gen given its release time (4-5 years into this gen).

Oh well. . . . I will have no conflict in which game to play once GT5 comes out. Thanks for making crap Treyarch! [email protected] was great, Black Ops . . . not so much,

come_at_me_bro2988d ago

Yep let's blame the DVD9 and not the consistent incompetence of Call of Duty developers.

FAGOL2988d ago

I don't think it's down to DVD9 more likely Treyarchs fault. They never were good in the sound department, just look at [email protected] IW were good with the graphics and sound but just failed with things like balancing. If only they worked together we could of had a perfect CoD game.

dirthurts2988d ago

And it's on good ol DVD9.

Ducky2988d ago (Edited 2988d ago )

Am I the only one who plays all multiplayer games muted?

Completely mute the in-game audio and put on some music... I find the constant ratatatatatata-booms to get annoying after a while.

Though, DICE seem quite adept at giving me eargasms. I actually didn't mute BC2 untill after two-months.

jeseth2988d ago

You sir are the #$%^=off that we all mute,

People who blast music while we play are arguably the most annoying people in online multiplayer.

Like I said, nothing personal but I think I speak for thousands of people on this one.

Ducky2988d ago (Edited 2988d ago )

...I play on the PC.
Me playing my own music for my own computer through my own speakers has no effect whatsoever on the people I play with... aside from having a deaf team-mate.

Though there are people who blast their own music through the in-game voice chat, which I find annoying... and another reason why multiplayer games get the almighty mute from me.

jeseth2988d ago

It seems we are on the same page with guys that have to blast crap music through their mics on in game chat.

Drives me bonkers!!!!

Mute = Best thing ever.

Ace Killa 082988d ago

did [email protected] had any great sounds for guns? i swear a slince gun sounds like a pellet gun.

kraze072988d ago

Number 2 and number 3 bother me the most. I'd also like to add poor sound quality to the list. Like Redrum said above me the sound quality is garbage. I'm not as disappointed with Black Ops as I was with Modern Warfare 2, but the franchise has been getting worse, COD4 was the last one I truly enjoyed. Black Ops is still a decent game and I love the Cold War setting and some of the other changes they've made, but the essentials just aren't up to par with the competition in the FPS genre.

Ace Killa 082988d ago

one thing i hate is the lack of game mode WAR, the COD3 was great but the [email protected] sucked due to the boost cap boost. I do think that game mode is fun and would be a good addition to the game, though the maps do lack the design for it

Paradise Lost2987d ago

yeah, war is such an intense game's a shame Treyarch didn't put it in...I would rather have demolition removed and have War instead.
