This is part three of Tsardom.net's review of Call of Duty: Black Ops. This installment takes a warts and all look at the multiplayer mode of the game, along with all its flaws and bugs.
i'm not a big cod fan but all the "cons" are the reason i'm having fun and haven't given up in disgust like every other cod game. the game finally feels fair. i enjoy not getting absolutely raped just because i haven't unlocked the best weapons yet.
MW2 and Black Ops are the two extremes - something which is a balance between the two would probably be a good game. The fact that I can unload an entire clip into an opponent only for him to turn around and kill me with two bullets from the same weapon is just horrible and frustrating. Matchmaking/party issues, spawn points and hit detections are the biggest problems. Maybe once they are fixed the rest will fall into place. At the moment the game feels anything but fair as there is very little skill involved.
