Yes, I do play orks, yes, I do have quite a few boys on the table, and yes, it does take me a while to move them...got a problem with that...

There is a zombie mode. Plenty of footage on Youtube. I think you play as Presdent Kennedy or something rediculous like that and the zombies attack the Pentagon or White House.

Agreed, but the story line itself is at around... 7.2? But some of those random half cinematic moments, and the use of some weapons at certain moments saved it from a total disaster... The only reason I am not selling this game right now is the fact that I have been unable to try it online...* I am not about to get banned for this shit And the Zombies... Even though that was boring alone, got to get some people over here for that...


And just as a note; The story is pretty much unrealistic... Yeah, I know that it is about secret Black Ops missions, but still, that **** ****** ***** thing developed by that Steiner guy sounded pretty much unbelievable...


*Yes, I did rip the adapter away from the back of the Xbox, and then I hid it somewhere deep under a pile of magazines...

I suppose we'll see how the online goes, then. I'll definitely be playing this game, but I'll certainly not be taking it very seriously. For me, CoD is just a game to run around like a drunken asshole while spraying as many bullets as possible.

Seconded, I'll be waiting a long time for it to go down in price just so I can buy it for the zombie mode.

The online multiplayer is amazing! Play it now! But it aint all that balanced, but a lot better than the MW2 failure!

Watched my mate playing 1st couple of missions tonight..

Was fucking awesome; It's so busy, so much going on in the background - makes you feel like you're really in the heat of it.

However; I fucking hate flashbacks - So there is some negative points...

Wont be buying this till X-Mas time I don't think; I'll milk MW2 being more or less empty 'til then.

The guy who wishes he never sold all his warhammer. Haha. Such is life.

Sure, it may have zombies, but no matter which way you look at it, at the end of the day, you're still playing a game developed by Treyarch.

You fucking sickos.

played it today and meh,
not a patch on MW1 or Reach

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

I got the PC verison today. As you may know im not best pleased. It seems they have messed up and made all PC users buy a virtually unplayable game due to the frame rate dropping to 1 or 2. In MP and SP. Hoping there will be a patch in the very near future to sort this mess out. The console versions seem great and i'm sure its a pretty good game.... when it works that is.

Go on just click the little guy you know you want to
