Game has its issues connection being the biggest one up front but thats always been a issue with COD games untill they go to dedicated servers it always will be. After that SMG whoring and personally I think they needed some larger maps like previous titles WAW,Black Ops,MW2 maps arnt terrible by design just being so small matchs go fast hense they get played out extremely fast.

Caught on to the game fast but stick to HTD 90% of the time I find core modes in this version seems to take as many bullets as halo to drop someone unless your using a SMG.  I totally skipped MW3 so dont know if they have made any improvments from that title. The one thing I have noticed more so about this title than others is due to connection issues and SMG whoring  its my W/L ration thats taken the biggest hit compared to other COD titles were it was nearly a 2.0 or higher regardless of the skill of players im grouped up with.

Well I'm done and dusted.

Got to first prestige despite this game's ," issues ", and knew that I was having no fun at all.

It's mediocre, lack lustre maps and bland weapons can't be compensated for with all the distraction candy they've packaged with this.

I tried it and it failed me.

I only lost a few bucks on the trade value -  I don't know why, but I think this game is always going to have multiplayer problems and I'm glad to be shot of it.

just some thoughts on the campaign.

i just finished the campaign on veteran. didn't seem all that hard to me.

i thought the story was pretty cool. some of the gun sounds were awesome. the graphics are as good as any recent CoD game, but not as good as BF3 with the HD content installed. good selection of weapons. worst part was the a.i. not horrible, but not the best, either.

 

doesn anyone beside me play the campaign???

Halfway thru campaign so far.  The future tech stuff is cool, but the rest isn't really impressing me.  Not really connecting with the characters much, as I did with Price, Soap, etc.  Story is kind of all over the place, so it feels a bit disjointed IMO.

 

I disliked the first (optional) RTS mission, but the others you can play and succeed from FPS view, so those were OK.  But again, they break up the flow of the storyline for me.

You can play the first one from 1st person as well. Personally I liked the campaign. The plot wasn't anything special, but it was at least interesting to watch unfold.

The epic, eagerly-awaited Zero Punctuation review of Blops 2.   Audio is NSFW or kids.  365  This guy always makes me LOL.

That was funny. 

I personally like this game. I could not really get into MW3 but this one has me.

BEWARE: if you lower the difficulty, you will NOT be able to raise it again during the present campaign. i found this out the hard way. but starting the game over after being halfway through it helped me understand the story better. it held my attention and was well done. i can't remember being this eager to see the outcome of a game. there are branching storylines, but i haven't done those. yet.

I'm done. 

 

I have had it with this game.  In all seriousness.  I am a big cod fan, have loved cod mp since cod4 but I can not play this game any more.  I want to like it, I have tried.  Im a 3rd prestige, level 42 but his game has taken everything fun out of it.  No strategy cause the maps are almost impossible to have control over and the spawns are shit.  No aim or accuracy needed, just shoot around the guy and you will drop him faster.  The consistency of game play, need to relearn the entire game on each match since connections are all over the place.  knife > sniper > pistol > SMG > launchers > lmgs > looking at people > AR's = Bullshit.

 

I have to take a break before I break something.  Halo 4, MW3, ME3, battlefield 3, blur, homeland, dance revolution, Barbie summer vacation, disney kinect ...... all better games in my opinion. When you fire a shot, it actually feels like it is hitting home, not in blops.  Hit Markers on air is how this game is played.  I was even able to suffer through MW2's problems (oma bullshit, knifers, javelin glitch, unlimited care packages, rock glitches....etc) but I can not do this game any more.  

 

I really hope treyarch fixes this game up because it has TONS of potential, but in the current state I just cant do it anymore.  I will wait for another title update.  Torlacher was even saying last week 700K+ people playing this week there are luck to see 500k.  They fucked up and they know it.

I went back to playing MW3 mp again and GOOD GOD is it good. MW3 for me is the best COD game ever. The MP works for me. I love being able to actually hit someone quickly.

I agree! i'm a COD veteran,

COD4 = 50,000+ kills (1.70 - 2.00 k/d)

MW2 = 400,000+ kills (2.30 k/d)

Black Ops = 30,000+ kills (2.20 - 2.30 k/d)

MW3 = 70,000+ kills (2.70 k/d)

Over 120 days of online playing time.

I have to say i'm really pissed off at treyarch they ruined the MP, its total rubbish, i kept going negative k/d almost every match yesterday... its the worst COD ever! i'm best at running and gunning but this game is so crap you can hear your own footsteps, team mates footsteps but you cant hear enemy footsteps, silencer sounds are too loud, weapons are terrible, too many hit markers but they dont die! my accuracy is 27% with the M27 assault rifle and 25% with PDW submachine gun and i'm getting killed by people with less than 15% accuracy and less than 1.5 k/d... too many ridiculas ways to die, doesnt make sense, perks are crap, cant delay shock charges and C4 triggers with the engineer perk, ghost perk is crap yet again! also campers are impossible to kill, so what if they are visible in the uav even with ghost, this isnt mw2 that u can aim, shoot and kill OR tube/rocket them out of their camping tent if you are not good with your aim, in this game u only gonna get hit markers on campers IF you get a chance to shoot them cos you wont since you are busy trying to kill runners and no point trying to flank they would have themselves covered by other teammates and/or shock charges etc... MW2 was the best balanced game after that it all went downhill and this game is the worst shooting game i've ever played i do better in BF and i only played BF3 for 1 day... in this game my k/d is 1.9 but you would expect that from a COD veteran, what you dont expect is me being negative and humiliated by others..... i have never ever been negative in any match of the COD games until black ops 2, this game is just ridiculas!!!

I am still enjoying the game....BUT something really does need to be done with the hit detection, it is the one thing that is making my buddies and I rage in matches as well as other people.

When I kill other players I hear them scream out a huge rant of profanities and its always involving the hit detection and I'm sure they hear it from me  as well when I lose my cool and rage into my mic about hit detection as well!  LOL!54

I have not been having trouble with the maps or spawns as of yet...I do wish Sniper rifles were the way they were in the first BLOPS where it was almost impossible to "run and gun" with them, that shit is just stupid.

All the BS aside involving MW2's shortcomings I still think that game had the BEST hit detection out of ALL the COD games and I probably enjoyed MW2 the most out of any COD title even with the Commando, javlin glitch, OMA bullshit.

I thought COD WAW even had better hit detection, I loved that game minus the MP-40 whores!75

 

I don't work in a field involving IT or online gaming connectivity so I don't know all the in's and out's of this stuff....

 

I think Treyarch will fix it though....more and more it just seems like these guys seem to put out rushed products now, where in the past it SEEMED like they were more polished when they came out for the public.

You are pretty animated about your hate for the game.  Respect.  I'm in the same boat as you, I've played COD since COD 4.  To establish my cred, I'm a decent player, my K/D and W/L are generally closer to 2 than 1, and my score per minute is not horrible.  Of course, I have my opinons as to which of the games are good and which are bad, as does everyone.  In fact, I really like the Treyarch games much better than the infinity ward games.  But that's neither here nor there.  This game is by far the worst of the bunch and I can't put my finger on why.  Some rounds I do alright, and then some rounds I get completely shat on.  Did I simply forget how to play? No. There's no middle ground.  

Your statement is spot on, 

"Beyond that the game itself is still really underwhelming. No maps jump out at you as being good, the ARs are horrible, and the gametypes are largely the same. Nerfing Ghost seemed like a good idea but now the game is a run and gun clusterfuck of random encounters. There is nothing strategic, every encounter is a roll of the dice and the dice are loaded on the other end."

That's exactly how I feel. Nerfing ghost (and removing slight of hand) is a mistake.  I understand that this traditional COD perk would be overpowered if used with a Perk Greed, but the chaos that ensues is only favoralbe to the 18 and under set.

It seems like the developers worked real hard to create an even playing field, which favors fast-twitch, run-like-hell-random-around-the-map-and-shoot-as-quickly-as-possible-at-whomever-you-run-into. Not that there was ever an overabundance of tactics to be employed in COD matches, they've really taken this element out of the game. Team Deathmatch and Kill Confirmed consist of a bunch of players having random encounters around the map - these two gametypes are unplayable for me anymore.  Domination and Hardpoint are the only gametypes that still seem to slightly favor utiizing stategy, albeit only slightly, and that's assuming the opposite team is actually playing the objective.

Okay, end rant.

P.s. And fuck the touchy spawns. Damn.

I am so glad I didn't buy this game.

I was pretty unhappy with MW3, as I felt the lag comp in that game usually put me at a disadvantage. That, coupled with old-man reflexes, put me at an unplayable disadvantage. I stopped playing MW3 shortly after the release of the first DLC.

I've read & heard several comments from people that I consider to be very skilled COD players, all having similar Blops2 experiences with being handicapped by lag comp, poor hit detection, uninspired map designs, etc. 

Maybe I'll rent Blops2 from Redbox if I hear that the lag comp is fixed, and by "fixed" I don't mean "a little better" or "better than it was". Fixed to the point that most of the bitching about the game isn't about connections or hit detection.

Friday night, the usual marathon CoD gaming session with my friends.

Played 3+ hours of Black Ops 2 tonight, and there was a lot of frustration.  Game after game of  - garbage connections, lag comp, bullets killing me after I take cover, getting shot in my spawn, getting shot in the back with revenge spawns, getting killed .2 seconds after my enemies appear around a corner, etc.

Me and my whole crew got disgusted.  Felt like some games were "fixed" like the opposing team had a secret weapon or hidden advantage.   But instead of everyone calling it a night, we all jumped back onto Black Ops 1.  

Utterly different feeling game, much to my surprise seeing as I played so much of it previously.   Smooth connections for one thing (I'm in Maryland, one of my buddies was in Texas, another in Washington state) and we all felt the connections were good the whole time we played.  Minimal lag comp, actual firefights you feel you can win, the aim assist seemed a notch less, and the movement feels better.  There were very few times playing Black Ops1 tonight, were I felt I was really getting the short end of the stick.  Gun fights felt fair - and that's really the most important thing here.

Right now - Black Ops1 is the better game.

Interesting....8 of us played ground war for a good portion of 4 hours last night.  Over all it was a good time.  Very few WTF moments for any of us.  I can recall 2 games of OMGWTFisgoing on, other then that, I had a great time last night!!!

Gunny, don't bother reasoning with Schultz.  He's only interested in trolling.  If he truley didn't like the game he would of hopped on that BF3 lifeboat.  

 

Seriously folks, if you don't like the game then move on.  You all said your piece, we get it.  Plenty of other games to play.

1.  I'm reasonable, I'm not a troll.  Don't try to make me out to be one.

2.  You on the other hand, are a false advertising clan runner.  I joined you clan years ago, with the promise of "tactical shooters"...and no one was playing BF, or Rainbow, or Ghost Recon.  All you wanted to do was play MW2.  When I brought this up, you told me to take a hike. 

3. I bought BF Premium Edition and have been playing it.  Check my gamertag.

4.  This thread is for bitching about Black Ops2.  Read the thread title again.  Maybe you think you're in the Black Ops2 thread of praise, sunshine, and candy.

5.  I've played each CoD more than you have.  Far more.  And I'm better than you in each game.  I know when things are on an even keel, and when I'm being served a dish of hot shit.  You can barely keep a 1:1 ratio (actually you didn't in Black Ops) https://elite.callofduty.com/player/hq/xbox/54d10030cc86b1b92f9e24195e0e90d8

 

Black Ops2 is not worth playing competitively at the moment.  More people saying this now than when MW3 first came out.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xohcz7ia548&hd=1

 

And keep your personal opinion comments about me personally to yourself, troll.  Pot calling the kettle black is what you are.

I don't have to make you out to be one.  You do an excellent job of that on your own.  You trolled Fetal's blog, you've trolled this forum and you trolled my clan when you were in it  You also cheat at games.  . That leads to number 2, you were asked to leave 2o2s because of trolling and troublemaking.  You want to air dirty laundry, there is it.  Now promptly go join the club of people I don't give a shit about.

People like you make me laugh.  Your the type of person that bitches and moans about things yet does nothing.  You don't run a clan.  You don't mod a forum. You're not a Division leader.  You don't run community events.  You bitch and troll. 

You don't like me, fine.  I could care less.  You don't like BLOPs 2, fine.  I could care less.  But as Division leader for COD, I'm done with the troll posts.  Take it eslewhere.  I'd rather have a positive community in this forum.  This crap wouldn't be tolerated in any other game forum.

I'm locking this thread because I'm not interested in your tit for tat.  PM Doodi if you're so inclined.

If you want to see people bitch, moan and troll then go check it out at the source.  

 

Look, I get it.  I know all about the issues.  And I think everyone has had a chance to post about them.  If you don't like the game then my suggestion would be to take it back to Gamestop and trade it in while it's still worth some decent cash.  Bitching about it here is getting old and tired.  It's time to get this community back on track.  We have a large portion of 2old2play that plays this title and I'd like to provide a nicer area for them to post in.
