Sorry if i sound a little angry but i found this game to be several orders of magnitude better than Modern Warfare and World at War, as did a few of my mates.
I love Treyarch, WaW was one of my favortie CODS. I just think they need to step out of IW's shadow on the SP because it felt like all the others and was a boring at start. Saying that aside from the hit detection issues and RC's cars they dominated the MP. Like i said, maps are well desgined, killstreaks are balenced, perks are cool, and theres plenty of guns. For MP i have to give it to Treyarch for making a more balenced game out the start.

I was dissiponinted by SP, but i in no way hate Treyarch (plus Zombies...o the Zombies .)

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...

I personally think its shite and have already taken back my copy. The graphic are horendous, looks like something from 2005, MW1 looks better, nevermind MW2. The majority of guns are shit, and they look they've tried to add as many possible attatchments as they can to try and draw people in, a flamethrower? really?? and then theres that RC car, which is the biggest joke ever. Nuketown has to be the worst map i have ever seen in a game.

In general i hated it, and for me it utterly failed. Infinity Ward are clearly the better half of COD imo, by a very long way

I got the game this morning; been playing it loads...

First major impressions; Why do people think it's funny to put cocks on their titles? It's just so gay, I'm sick of 3/4 wankers on this fucking game, thinking it's great fun to put a cock on their title. How fucking pathetic do you have to be?!

Otherwise good game, The Graphics took a beating, but none-the-less enjoyable game - Zombies is brilliant to me (I never owned WaW)

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

Played online today. All i got for 2 hours was high pitched "Fuck this i was lagging, this is a shit game, owned bitch, what the fuck noob" in several different games. I hate the online community...

I think it's more balanced than MW2, the graphics ain't as good but I can live with them. I like the customisation, despite some of the obvious exploits (like the penis..)

The negatives are the stupid spawning system, nuketown is a blast if you're playing with friends, if not it's pretty tragic but it's still better than Rust on MW2.

I like the amount of guns, each to there own but the Famas is far to strong. I prefer to use LMGs tho as I like to lay down suppressing fire.

Anyway It's more enjoyable than MW2 to me, I'm even starting to like a lot of the maps to.

Haha. Yeah, man. As a friend of mine put it, if you're going to flip out about something in the game... do it off the mic. What sort of responses do people expect to hear by raging to everyone in the game? I swear I've never muted so many people in my life, even with the people I kept unmuted for the laughs. Shit, we all get frustrated...but damn. Some people sound like they're about to go on a murder spree. We all get pissed when stupid shit happens, but have some courtesy, you know? If I had a fucking nickel...

I don't even bother wearing a mic unless I'm playing with someone over the net, and then it'll be in a private chat. Trying to work as a team in CoD is like trying to reverse gravity by politely asking it to happen.

CoD definitely has one of the worst online communities, I'll give it that as well. Shit talkers are found in every nook and cranny. Have the highest score in a winning game? You'll be shit talked. Have the highest K/Dr in a Deathmatch? You'll be shit talked. Were you dumped in to the game 5 seconds before the match ended? Guess what? You'll be shit talked. Not every time, of course, but anyone who's played a CoD game online for 20 minutes will surely know what I mean.

Oh, and Nuketown? Nuketown seems that it can either be one of the funnest maps in the game or the absolute worst. Most people don't know about spawn control so it's very easy for the match to be reduced to a quagmare of mixed-spawning clusterfucks. It's definitely not a user-friendly map. When everyone is assaulting both houses simultaneously, that's when shit hits the fan and people wind up spawning next to 3 or 4 enemies after getting killed. It's stuff like this that make me laugh when people brag about KDR in Black Ops.

I really don't wonder where the good graphics went, though. Granted it's not distractingly bad online, but after announcing a new Call of Duty title per year, you can't be suprised about this. They already announced a new Call of Duty will arrive next year. They're just going to repackage the same thing with different weapons with a cardboard storyline to entertain people who don't play online. Talk about milking a franchise... THIS is why I'm hesitant to even buy the game.

Someone gave you a flamethrower, and you complain about it? As a pyro, I am greatly offended by this statement.
