Most people are anti COD because they have moved away from a fun franchise to just milking their fans.

As opposed to how nobody else is milking their fans?

They've been milking those poor Counter-Strike fans for years with all those paltry map packs for $20 bucks.

COD: BLOPS is essentially the same game as COD 4 with new skins

Minus zombie mode and multiplayer with bots, you mean?

Yeah a lot of people are just anti cod because it's so popular/activision. Most haven't really played it

COD: BLOPS is essentially the same game as COD 4 with new skins, and they even manage to balls up the optimisation on the PC, so it was basically unplayable for a lot of people.

Last COD game I buy - i've played it for ~15 hours in all, but i got nothing new from the game, so for me there is no point buying even more COD in the future until they start to "innovate".

I hear you. Say what you want about server stability (I wouldn't know, as I don't play standard multiplayer atall), but with a single player campaign, not just standard multiplayer but also multiplayer with bots, and zombie maps, there's plenty to see and do on that dvd.

Granted, like others I did experience issues with slowdowns, but they were fixed early on. There are plenty worse games out there, you can be sure of that one.

Black Ops is now 4 months old, by the time W@W was 4 months old there was hundreds of zombie maps out, and thousands out now (the ZCT maps rule, and are in fact light years ahead of the official maps).

So yeah $15 for 1 new zombie map and more terrible MP maps is a fucking disgrace. At least deliver on the modtools that where promised and we'll make our own maps (a lot of which will be better than Treyarch's maps).

I can't speak for the absence of modtools, as I'm sorry to say, but I've gotten more and more used to not getting them these days. I know it doesn't make it right, but that's the way it is.

$15 might sound like a lot for one zombie map (and four multiplayer maps that I probably won't play very much atall), but if I get even half the time from this new map that I've gotten from Kino Der Toten, then it'll have proven itself to have been pretty good value for me.

I played several of the community zombie maps that had been made for World at War, but none of them really did anything for me. Not compared to the official maps, at any rate.

I bought it straight away. $13.50AU ish for five new maps, one of which, Ascension, is a zombie one? Hell yeah.

Sorry to not join the anti-Black Ops bandwagon in these parts, but I have spent more time playing the zombies online than I have most other games all up. There's also a full single player campaign and multiplayer bot mode for me to get stuck into aswell, if I ever get bored of shooting the zombies, that is.

This is one of those (albeit quite rare) times where I feel the criticism being flung about here isn't entirely justified.

Yeah a lot of people are just anti cod because it's so popular/activision. Most haven't really played it. I used to be like that but then I decided to try it and was surprised at how many good features it had that a lot of pc games are missing these days. Things like lean, prone, players can make their own servers without being forced to buy dedicated ones, bots, and theater mode really made Treyarch get more respect from me. Wish Dice would do all this in their heavily praised Battlefield 3. Mean

I love the zombie maps, but without modtools things are so boring. I mean 2 maps come on, and you really want 15$ for 1 more and some more crappy chokepoint induced MP maps? Really?

Black Ops is now 4 months old, by the time W@W was 4 months old there was hundreds of zombie maps out, and thousands out now (the ZCT maps rule, and are in fact light years ahead of the official maps).

I have a newish-friend who whenever I go to his places he's all, "I got that new zombies map man! I bet you wanna play it!" he's only got a 360 and a smallish TV and everytime I have to politely decline without launching into a glorious PC master race smack down.

Still waiting on modtools, so we don't have to give these assclowns any more money and fix the game that they would rather "improve" then fix.

Indeed.

It is a shame people pay for map packs, but they do and you can't blame companies for selling them what they buy.

Shame the multi-player on Duke Nukem Forever is being made by one of EA's shovelware developers rather than Gearbox. But I have high hopes for BF3.

After how they've treated the PC gamers on this port, no way Treyarch is getting my money. From repeated crashing to the main servers being down, glitches in the menu system, to the lack of communication about the issues, they lost my respect.

Is it me, or when they announced it, didn't it seem implied that it would be a free DLC for the PC? Or did I just read into what I wanted to read? Disappointed
