    Can't decide. I hated mw2 and thought everythingthey did with that game was bullshit.

    But t looks like treyarch is resolving most of the problems. And bfbc2 is boring and frustrating since the last patch. Can't decide.

    PenZ are you smoking something?? IW dominates Treyarch like a pimp does a hoe.

    This game is definitely not better than MW2. And for PC players like me, there are issues (as usual).

    http://www.crunchgear.com/2010/11/1...lems-mar-pc-launch-of-call-of-duty-black-ops/

    For single player mode - NPCs seem lost all the time
    Too much lag and stuttering
    Storyline is not fluid
    Hit boxes seem mis-placed (or this may be due to the lag)

    Overall: They tried to become too much like IW they failed and erased their own identity.

    Up until Black Ops I'd agree with you. Treyarch fixed every gimmick in the game (no infinite tubing, no knife running, there's more but I forgot).

    ... and zombies. Works great on 360 (which is what these games were designed for). You know I love me some PC FPS but all the bullshit ain't worth it.

    Also: No Call of Duty has a real story. It's pretty much Tom Clancy meets Jerry Bruckheimer meets 2 kilos of cocaine and $1 billion in weapons in every game.

    Yeah I figured this would be a console hit (as CODs usually are). But I still don't think its better than MW2.

    It's so buggy I can't play MP. :( Oh well, playing James Bond: Blood Stone now. Good game so far.

    I am a fool and asked my wife for it for Christmas. Now I find myself wanting to play it, my friends are all playing it and bragging about it, but if I tell her "i don't want it anymore" and go buy it she will bust me, shes no fool.

    I guess I just wait until Christmas and hope some bugs get worked out in the mean time.

    I really want to get this... Wish I had more time to play though. If I do, it'll be for PS3. I refuse to buy another 360 and pay their Live service.

    I'd buy it for 40 bucks but no way in he'll am I paying 60 for this game, especially hearing the horror stories from other pc gamers.

    The bugs must be on-line only. I just finished the with zero bugs. I don't play on-line, The ending you can see a mile away tho!

    Why are there ANY bugs? How hard is it to make the multi-player work right when you've been using the same engine since COD4?

    RC-XD is the new annoyance but it's not all that bad. The MP is much more enjoyable than MW2. Now if only they had similar maps.

    DUDE! I learned this lesson the hard way too. I have two lists:

    1) Gifts for people to buy me, stuff I wouldn't mind having but not dieing to have.
    2) Stuff I actually care about, which I buy myself.

    I play the hell out of this. Gameplaywise it's the most balanced CoD. MW2 was more fun with the gimmicks though.
