    Gotta say, out of all of the COD games I've played (I started with COD2 online), Black Ops has the most pathetic online community I've ever had the disgust to play with.

    "Hey guys! I bought this game to sit in a corner with claymores and akimbo scorpions all game long cause I'm a scrub and can't get 4 kills for a care package with hardline on!

    It's just so fucking frustrating. That along with the worst melee system since WaW (obviously, another Treyarch Achilles heel), poor bullet registration/hit detection and loads of other problems.

    Yeah it could be the servers... could be.. but MW2 never had this problem.. not even at Christmas time or launch date.

    No.. The game is good its just the community that's ruining it. It has the potential to be the finest COD MP but these problems are just so ridiculous.

    Campaign is great though... a really good original story much longer than MW2.

    Sounds like he already has, i played it at a buddies the other night and its alright, not worth buying though, i'm not a fan of treyarch's take on call of duty, they always have this paper thin feel, idk how else to explain it. Infinity ward always did it right, (except for commando and the one man army bullshit).

    Overall though every cod has the fucking campers, they sit on their ass in one spot in game, while they are on the couch doing the same shit, it's really pathetic.

    Personally, I'm dissapointed in the game. The campaign is good, but the graphics and online gameplay is just backwards compared to Modern warfare and modern warfare 2. Perhaps I had too high expections for this game.

    All CoD ever had going for it was story. Online is shit. Always has been. I'm still content with just doing combat training. At least there the bots move around.

    Way too anticipated.

    I was highly disappointed.
    Flaws>Pros,Flaws beat pros by a lot!
    since the launch everyone been camping it out.
    First you find them camping at scrapyard then came camping at the store now camping around every corner!
    "Coleman Camping Supplies" must be bringing in the money!
    They just screwed it up way too much.
    Not fit for a casual gamer such as me.

    Just,ughh!

    Well the game's elements were intended for casual gamers and those who are more competitive..

    The perks are all balanced.. there is no stopping power.. kill-streaks aren't stackable so there is no overpowered combo.. (even though I think hardline + RC car is ridiculous).

    The real problems with this game are the server strains (takes forever to find a match if you have a party of more than 2), the poor melee system, and the fact that they might have removed hitscan mechanics from the game (which isn't a real problem IMO, but it does make the hit detection a lot weirder especially with the lag.. although it might be lag altogether).

    Oh and the fact that you can't quicksope or play aggressively with a sniper. It was real easy to snipe in MW2 if you practiced for at least a week and I guess so many people complained about getting their shit wrecked that Treyarch decided to go against it. Wish they just put in COD4 styled sniping.. was a lot more gratifying.

    Ok i won't get blackops... i'm a very aggressive bolt action sniper in cod4. if it isn't possible to do that in here... well then F it, now its just like any other shooter out there... way to go guys you killed the series.
    first with MW2, then this... going downhill with lightning speed.

    part of that speed comes from apparently ANOTHER crap server system...
    when the F will they see that the dedicated server system from COD4 works as a charm?

    Well this is what they did.

    In COD4/MW2 and most Infinity Ward Treyarchs, when you zoom in with a sniper to quickscope or dragscope, your crosshairs will obviously line to the center and you can predict where they line up in order to pull of your shot, and you can also drag the scope onto an enemy while its zooming in to get a shot off as well.. it always worked.

    In this game when your crosshairs zoom in, the center won't never be where you aimed it to. It will always end up on either on the far upper right and left or on the bottom corners as well. This forces you to literally aim in and give this anti-qs mechanic 2 seconds to automatically steady itself, then in order to even pull off a shot, you have to hold your breath and for whatever reason they made another new mechanic where the character will make the sound of him holding his breath, but the sniper will only steady after about another 2 seconds.

    By that time your target is long gone, or he would have taken you out.

    Now, I've actually gotten a few lucky "quickscopes" in this game when I first tried it out, but when I looked at it in theater I saw that my aim was ridiculously off and it happened to hit, or when my aim is dead on but nothing happens. Usually in that game I would go ridiculously negative (even when trying to snipe from afar, it was just impossible as I'd get taken out by assault rifles easily).

    There's also a trick people are using to quickscope with this attachment called a variable scope.. it gives you 3 different levels of zoom and I've actually tried it and after you zoom into the second or third, the sway isn't really "there" and it makes it possible to land a few good shots mid-range. However, it isn't practical at short range because the second or third zoom is so incredibly magnified that it just throws your aim off. Then there's people trying it with the infrared/thermal but that shit doesn't work.

    I have played Black Ops... and despite of the failures... I would buy just for the N Zombies... I know Nazi Zombies is all pathetic and stuff... but I laugh a lot playing it with my friend... and despite of all of you said... I think CoD BO is a good game... ofc... nothing compared to CoD4... God can hit me with a lighting if I ever think any of the game after CoD4 is better than it...

    Well, after a few days of playing with just a sniper rifle.

    I gotta say that I should retract my previous comments.

    Sniping in this game is going to be something (unless they make it easier) reserved for those with extreme perseverance to actually learn how to use it effectively particularly in close-quarters.

    I have recorded some very nice sniper gameplay of me in a FFA with some sick quick scopes and nice snipe footage.

    Only problem I'm still having is winning 1v1 confrontations vs an assault rifle or an SMG. I will win 1/3 times if I get my first shot on target and if it's a one hit kill. Otherwise I pull out my secondary which wins almost every confrontation (automatic pistol).

    In regards to a community full of campers:

    This is why I am so happy they brought back dedicated servers! You have the wonderful option of going to another server, finding one with a good atmosphere, and one with a good admin who is willing to kick campers and hackers. Then add the server to your favorites and keep going back to it.
