Worth Getting?!
« on: December 14, 2010, 09:16:37 pm »
So with finals over, almost, is it worth me pickin up Black Ops? I know there were some issues early in its release but have most of them been fixed? Basically, worth my time/money?! Opinions. I want yours!

Personally, I really like the game.  The first patch made major improvements in SP for me but I still suffer issues online.  There is, what looks like a very large patch coming later this week, which I have fate, will fix most if not all the major issues.  It's gotten a lot of bad press on the steam forums but to me it's well worth the money. :)

For me, it has been like every other CoD game I've played: I hated it for the first couple weeks, then I really liked it.  Worth it for me for sure.


ATL- is that patch gonna fix the buggy killcam?  I love good killcams and BO's just suck.

The Homefront trailer looks far superior to this game. If you missed the VGA's, here's the link to the video.

We all know Black Ops is just a polished version of MW2. It's ok, we have rehab for this reason.

Pfft its more like the unpolished version of MW2. Give me MW2 with dedicated servers and I'll pay another $60 for the game. BO is **** disappointment compared to MW2, if only MW2 had dedis, it'd be a perfect game.

Ya... the hacked dedi-boxes got taken down pretty quick with patch fixes. And I agree... MW2 would have been better with dedicated servers and mod tools, but you can blame IW for that one.

The new patch fixed all my problems! Woo Hoo!  Honestly, I like the game much much better than MW2 (now that it's fixed).  Looks better plays better, and Black Ops dev team has incredibly talented artist.  All I can say is WOW.  :)

It looks like a cool story, but a weak game.

I don't know. Homefront could be good. The background story is just close enough to reality to be believable, and the gameplay looks good... Time will tell....

More polished? Maybe. To me Black Ops is a step back in terms of graphics compared to MW2, and since it got rid of most of the gay perks/OP weapons in some ways I would say it was a step ahead. However, since BO doesn't add anything new to the table in terms of new gametypes or much of anything else Treyarch will continue to be number 2 in my eyes for COD games. (Not counting sales) With that being said I do like the game because its simple fun, but the PC version if horrible. Its sorta playable after the 3rd patch but I prefer playing on xbox nowadays. As for Homefront it looks like a fun distration. It does seem alot like BFBC2. The story, like MW2 seems silly so I hope they don't take itself too seriously (Like MW2 did.)
