When Call of Duty: Black Ops was first announced, I was ready to throw my MW2 game out the window (Sometimes, I still want to). I wanted nothing to do with COD. I have experienced the MW2 that no one likes. Hackers, cheaters, and just plain cheapness. But, enough of the negativity. The brand new BO (heh BO) multiplayer trailer is really interesting. Have a looksie if you haven't yet.  

  

  

Ahhhhh. So refreshing. It seems like it is shaping up to be a nice change of pace for the COD franchise. The currency system, unique wager matches, character customization (emblem creator seems neat), theater mode. I'm sure I've missed some, but all of these just reassure the fact that Treyarch is making some big changes. Wishful thinking: No Noobtube.  
 
Hopefully, on November, we can enjoy a COD game worthy of the name.

Indeed, MW2 tricked me with it's promise and all it offered me was a month's worth of nerve racking nightmares.
 
But one little thing in Black Ops could save the experience for me. The added ''Combat Training'' or Skirmish as I'd like to call it, will let people enjoy what multiplayer is about without getting annoyed by douchebags.
 
Well, that and all the great guns and general smooth feel to it. I admit, it has sucked me in again. I just pray it's not a trap.

I'm also glad that it appears weapons actually have recoil again.

I have high hopes also, I am just glad that dedicated servers are coming back to the PC version.  I would enjoy MW2 more with a solid connection, but its not game breaking just personal preference I guess.

...Are you serious? Refreshing? Change of pace? It's exactly the same fucking engine and gameplay from the past 3 years just on new maps with a few different (and more ridiculous) weapons and killstreaks :| As well as a couple of features stolen from Halo, and bot matches :| 
 
None of these things are 'big changes' because a 'big change' would be something that actually has an effect on how the game plays. At the end of the day, sure you can change how your guy looks and give him a silly little smiley face reticle on his gun, but when you get into a match and actually play the fucking game, it's going to feel exactly the same way it did in 2007, and that is the biggest reason why I'll most likely be avoiding this game like the plague.

I see it the same way, so many stolen features from games like halo, socom confrontation, killzone 2, and counter strike. Cool for people who've never seen them before, but it looks so stupid when you have played the games the features originated from.

I had fun with MW2 and I'm very excited for Black Ops.  The new game modes, in particular, will make multiplayer much more enjoyable for me.

It's going  to take a lot to make me want this game, and they are nowhere near yet. It looks too similar. This is the problem with a game a year, they are always trying to make it look really different but under the skin it's exactly the same. It killed the Tony Hawk franchise, it killed the Guitar Hero franchise and it will kill the Call of Duty franchise.

That's what I thought too at first but then I went and watched some normal unedited straight team death matches and realized that it still plays like call of duty and lost interest again

Of course it's going to be similar, they aren't going to completely change the game, then it wouldn't be Call of Duty anymore.

I never once bashed Treyarch after World at War. When they made CoD3, it was pretty hard to see their talent, but after WaW I found them to be fairly competent. At least the hate wasn't unwarranted. 
 
I feel that this game still has a lot to prove. MW2 turned a lot of CoD players off (including myself) and I still see a lot of potential imbalances just by watching the trailer. If you couple that with wager matches, I see a lot more ragequitting happening than ever before. Bot matches are the only saving grace in that game for me right now. If those allow ranking up, customization, and are enjoyable on all difficulties then I'll pick this up.

This just in, all games are like that. We live in an age now where the industry can't revolutionize a genre because they've all been done to death. Every game is a rip-off of every other game in some way, and then evolves it one step further. Halo did everything Counter-Strike did but streamlined it, SOCOM did everything Halo did but made it more squad-based, etc. Each game adds in its own unique flairs and personality to make them stand out a little bit, but at the end of the day, you're ALWAYS going to be playing pretty much the same game. It's deciding whether or not there's enough uniqueness that will ultimately decide if it's worth a purchase. I would agree that so far, I don't think there is a WHOLE lot of new content changes, but I do like some of the directions they are going in. Being able to face AI opponents helps to eliminate the frustration of playing campers (hopefully). The new money-earning system allows your weapon choices and fates to be more in your own hands as opposed to random. And some of the new gameplay types encourage different ways to play. Definitely steps in the right direction, in my mind.

And this is a negative...why exactly?
I don't need a new graphics engine every game...they're using one they know and can get the most out of an it still looks great. You introduce a new engine you introduce new issues. And if you make make massive changes to the way the game plays then....well it's not a CoD game so that the hell is the point? There's nothing wrong with the way CoD style combat feels.
If you don't wanna play another CoD or it's not your type of game then fine but to bitch because it plays similar to the previous game is pants on head retarded. I've never understood that argument.
MW2 was a great game that was hampered by bugs. glitchers and a complete lack of testing (or so it seemed). If they can fix all that crap and add all this new stuff they're talking about well then sign me the hell up.
