This game is actually a console port so you would expect to see a few bugs, kinda reminds me of when Bioshock 2 was released, it was buggy as hell.

Seems most games now days are console ports so I guess the PC gamers will just need to get used to it.

i have the game as well, getting a lot of stutter both in mp and sp (mainly in heavy buasy combat), but then im just above the min specs for the game. with anyluck a patch will be out and fix the isses, mainly PC optamiseation.
Oh for pc users, if yuo want to get out of the chair in the main menu, look down at your hands and repeatedly hit the space bar, you can then wonder around the lab (still havent found the dead ops arcade machine yet)

Utter shit. Story is warped to fuck, and the only thing I've seen is the L96 abuse.

Treyarch ruined it with their LOL COOOL IF JIMMY WACKER OMG WIKI SOOOO COOOOLLLLL design process.

The Levels are more warped than MoH, and although I'm a MoH fanboy, I'm still in the process of wiping my arse with the CoD manual. Never felt so underwhelmed with a game.

MoH's issues was the lack of length of the game and poor art, but the story was (if a little safe), damn good. THis? Black Ops is like a ching snorting piglett drunk on absinthe having an epileptic fit typing the story. Fucking mental.

And Zombies, nah mate. They're shit.

Hated it. For Zombies I have World at War but the story mode is so bad I could only play for a little while before I got sick of it.

DO NOT BUY.

how very strange,
all the boys on the game floor were all pretty much saying it's ok-ish,
yet their magazine gave it a very good review

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?

Magazines that review games are all pretty much giving the game good scores, but that mostly cause of the fear of doing otherwise...

Call of Duty games have always had heavily flawed stories. After getting some game time in, I didn't bother with campaign after watching the first three levels being played by a friend. It's dreadfully uninteresting, but that's what I've expected.

The big star of CoD: BO is multiplayer, of course. Two player multiplayer splitscreen? Flamethrower weapon attatchments? Miniguns? Pump-action grenade launchers? Black OPs seems to be the perfect game to shoot the shit with and screw around. The player emblem system is 1000x better than the one in Halo: Reach, though if you ask me, the connectivity in BO matchmaking is 1000x worse than Halo: Reach. Games where split second decisions can save your life are left up to chance because you might not of actually shot that guy 3 times in the face despite what the hit registration icons say.

I don't know how many killcams I've seen where people I saw get obliterated with half a magazine of ammo from my weapon magically avoid getting damaged even once and wind up killing me. The bane of having a crappy connection for a game like this, I suppose.

So far, I'm loving the maps and weapons. No weapon seems to have a noteworthy edge over the others, at least for now, and killstreak rewards are set up to help discourage campers as they aren't really overpowered. The care package system now awards players with killstreak rewards not available for purchase like the others are. These include the 'Death Machine' minigun, which makes you extremely slow but a force to reckon with, and a four-barreled rocket launcher people might recognize from Arnies 'Commando' movie.

If you're a fan of CoD's multiplayer environment, you will be pleased with Black Ops. This one is way better than CoD 4 online, and I don't say that lightly. Especially now that there is a challange/reward system much more detailed than Halo: Reach's to encourage teamwork. Something that's been desperately lacking in the CoD franchise, I think we can all agree. I've been overly critical of CoD games, but this one is excellent. Just don't take it seriously. This game series is notoriously glitchy and shaky, but it's a great way to mess around. I usually run around with the flamethrower attatchment like a madman (perfect close quarters anti-camper weapon, btw).

Also: FFS, bring an anti-air launcher. SOMEBODY. I feel like I'm the only guy in the entire game who shoots down helicopters. More points for me, I guess.

None OP'd guns? Eh, try Ninja, Ghost, Warlord/Hardened Pro with a Sniper or Commando SMG.

Christ, the best thing about Cold blooded was you couldn't take Stopping Power. Although there's no damage increase, you can now get a Triple Bodyshot kill with the L96.

LMG's are useless, as are shotty's, pretty much (although not as broken as Sniper Shotguns with Solid Slugs in MoH - the RDS on a Solid Slug M1014 can OHKO someone in the opposite buildings on Kabul).
