300 developers and it is still going to be a sub-par expansion back to the call of duty series.... I stopped caring around the 1st prestiege into black ops.

Will I get it, maybe, will I keep it, probably not. Will I enjoy it, the campaign sure, but the online will most likely lose it's luster after the first prestiege.

See, why are you so stupid?

If you don't enjoy COD, think it's an "expansion pack" to the COD series and think it's not going to be good. Why even bother getting it ?

I see the Zombies portion being released as a "portable-only" game. This means that the PSV, 3DS and maybe smartphones will be getting a "Black Ops Zombies 2". This isn't something I want to see, but why would they release just Zombies as an all-out game for consoles?

THE GAME.

I think you skipped over the part where I say I will enjoy the campaign..... Yeah probably. Didn't say it wouldn't be good either, I said it would be an expansion because the games basically retread the same mechanics over and over rarely adding anything worth while to be able to consider it a brand new game. Different weapons and different perks all basically feel like new skinned versions of the last game, with perks pretty much being just that, which is fine for perks, as I feel most of those are pretty well established as of this point. If they would take a year or two off and really, I mean REALLY work at it, with the talent the developers have they could make an amazing, incredible, ground breaking game in the call of duty series, but as it stands they are happy to rush out retreads of a game and cash in on the rabid fans.

I said it would be sub par, which can still be considered good to an extent. Before you jump to calling people stupid you should really read carefully and not take a stance of "If he doesn't love it, he must hate it."

Also, I said I would maybe get it, not It was a sure thing.




Oh and everyone else, it is worded oddly, he could mean another entire game, or that just the scale of it...

Stop there.

Exactly how much variety must they put into a new Call of Duty game to make people like you happy? They vary the weaponry greatly from game to game, add a whole new set of maps, new unlocks for every level with a minimum of level fifty, an entirely new campaign, new graphical features, and more than I can care to think of at the moment. Does this not please you, master? No offense to the following, but compare that to EA sports games, God of War, Skyrim; as far as variety, Call of Duty is on par with most games of today, and outdoes plenty more. Furthermore, millions of fans are pleased with the changes made from game to game, wouldn't it be a bad move to change a formula that is keeping a good 80% of the Call of Duty community entertained?

Why is it people keep skipping over parts of my comment? I didn't say I hated the game or the series, I simply stated my opinion on the fact that I think the games multi-player was getting stale. It is just a retreard over and over and over of the same types. Granted MW3 has added in the black ops game modes which I enjoyed a lot. Stuff like gun game, one in the chamber, jugg, infection, those are the type of things I like to see change. The crossbow, weapons like that, are the kind of innovation and changes I love to see. Most of the guns are re skinned versions of ones from past games, or just straight up ports, which is fine, but don't pass it off like new content.

Maps, if you look closely enough, seem like the same framework as past maps, either way it doesn't matter, as the overworkings more than make up for that. So sure, new maps, which usually come in packs.... to expand the game.... hmmm.

Graphics, sure, used too be big changes, but from black ops to mw3 to maybe black ops 2(haven't seen too much to judge) the graphics, being released so close together, look pretty similar.

Look I'm not saying change the whole formula, just some innovation on it would be nice to keep me coming back longer than after the first run through the ranks.

By no means am I trashing the CoD franchise, I still love playing now and again with friends, but compared to the non stop playing that some of the older ones induced, these new ones seem to be spinning their tires year in and year out. I just really want it to feel like it is making progress, as it stands TO ME it feels like nothing more than an expansion pack attached to a new campaign.

I appreciate you not resorting to name calling like a child though, and I respect a fair many of your points, and agree with some of them.

It's funny how you can always rely on a CoD or Battlefield page to start a war...

oni_hero if you don't like the direction of the series, vote with your wallet. or at least buy the game pre owned so none of your money goes to the developers, if you continue paying people for their bad work they won't have the incentive to improve it. Simple as that.

He continued to state how the single-player and multiplayer components for the shooter are both "pretty big and ambitious," but then said they're "creating another game with the Zombies there”, thus justifying a large development team.
Does this mean that Zombies won't be in BO2,or does it mean that they're making it so big in BO2 that they're considering it to be "another game"?

I apologize for jumping to conclusions, I tend to get defensive when repetition in the CoD series is mentioned, mainly due to one friend of mine who is hellbent on stopping me from enjoying anything after World at War. I suppose I can see how the multiplayer is getting stale for some, and I'm just into the series enough for the smaller changes to win me over.

As far as zombies being "another game", I hope this is only referring to the size of the mode, not hinting that they are charging extra for what is without a doubt one of the most attractive features of Treyarch CoD. I plan on buying the best possible special edition of Black Ops II, but nonetheless, if I hear anything along the lines of "Pre-order the Veteran Edition at Gamestop for early access to the Nazi-Zombies DLC!", they've lost me as a CoD player. Hopefully, between Halo 4 and Black Ops II, November 2012 will be a good month in FPS history.
