Title: Call of Duty, Black Ops II - XBOX 360
Post by: Wiggs on November 13, 2012, 02:30:35 AM
Greetings fellas.  I just picked up the game and am about to pop in my 360.  Did anyone else pick it up or plan to?  I just read an IGN review giving it a 9.3/10 calling it one of the best first person shooters of the decade.  Halo 4 received a 9.8/10 but I'm not a Halo guy.

Debating on it...$65 is a lot to waste on something I can play for only 25mins at a time.

I get motion sickness like a mother fucker. >:(

I haven't been a big gamer for about 10 years but I wanted to get this game for sometime just on storyline alone.  This is the first game I've bought this year and the last one will be Walking Dead, December 4th. That sucks about motion sickness.  Mt best friend gets the same way sometime but he's really good at first person shooters.

Will be picking it up in a little on my way to work (for Xbox as well) and counting the hours until I can come back home and unleash hell!


And btw, I got Halo 4 as well, its pretty fucking good!

CoD storylines/campaigns are usually lacking - it's all about the multiplayer.   Sucks that CoD and Halo4 got released so close to each other.  Just finished Halo4 and really wanted a break from CoD MP, but it looks like my friends are skipping Halo MP altogether.

To each his own, my man, but the CoD campaigns are very short.  The popularity is mostly around the MP.

But, we're kind of on the same page with Halo.  I exclusively played MP on Halo2/3 but my friends gravitated to CoD, so I followed.  I loved Halo MP, and was hoping to make the return.   I played about  10 games of slayer last night, but it's not as fun by yourself.

So I did like blackops, but not MW3... What is so special about BO2?

I ask seriously, because the last MoH got raped on reviews about it being a "generic" shooter... Well, when are shooters not just "shooters"?

I'm wondering why the big hub bub around Black Ops at all... Halo I would get I suppose, mostly because they don't come out every single year.

So what's so special about Black Ops 2 anyway?

I haven't picked it up yet... I'll probably grab a copy today.

The only reason I liked the OG Black Ops was the 4 way split screen player mode so we could play it on in our movie theater at the office.

Anyway... What's so awesome about it?

It's CoD man, CoD has been running on reputation for years. Last great one, IMHO, was MW1, downhill ever since. But, it's got the CoD title slapped on it, so its automatically a fucking 9.5/10.

Can't stand that shit. CoD 2/3/MW1 were outstanding. Now, just the same shit, different day. Thats the big reason I jumped ship to the MoH series in 2010.

That's what I keep saying... Their reviews are ALWAYS up top and I just can't see WHY.

Then they rape other games... Not just MoH mind you... but pretty much ALL other shooters like that.

Hype and reputation. Plus I feel like they compare all other shooters to CoD.... if its not JUST like CoD, then it sucks. If its too much like CoD, then it sucks.

Warfighter... its not perfect by a long shot, but its really enjoyable. I play it on the Hardcore mode (or whatever its called), and it doesn't feel like any of the other shooters at all. It has its own identity and IMHO stands against the MP of ANY of the other games. But yet it got fucking torn apart. The last MW was horrible, and yet it got heaped praise. I just don't understand.

All Call of Duty games play very similarly but just in a different settings.... its a pretty generic formula that just works!  Personally I love the COD games, my fave so far being Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops...  (I enjoyed the previous ones as well though)...

Now whats special about Black Ops 2 (Aside from it being the first futuristic Call of Duty) is that according to the reviews, your actions have consequences and can trigger different results and a different endings depending on how you approached certain situations - this is a first in a Call of Duty game!

I will let you know when I play it tonight!


I picked it up a little bit ago (waited in line like a 30 year old loser surrounded by a bunch of middle school and high school kids lol!)

Just spent an hour on Big Team Battle with a friend for Halo 4.    So much fun.   Fighting vehicles is something I missed in CoD, and it's a new element of combat when it's not just who shoots first who wins a battle.

it is not insane, sorry but medal of honor is a poor man's call of duty

it's one thing to like battlefield or halo more than call of duty, they are different types of shooters

medal of honor tries to be exactly like call of duty but it comes up way short, the reviews are not wrong

i played medal of honor in 2010, it wasn't bad but it felt like a generic call of duty, people saying medal of honor is better are the type that has to knock anything that's popular

Knock anything thats popular my ass. I was a huge CoD fan up until MW1. After that, its all down hill. MoH plays nothing like CoD, its very much a more tactical shooter, rather than a "run, gun, and twitch" shooter like CoD. BF3 slays them all.

BTW, MW3 wasn't even the same team that did the original series. Part of the reason why it sucked ass.

id Software in the Commander Keen days was ace.  :)
Those shitty "Warfarter 2045", "Oil Boom : Bicep Of Peace" and "Youth Today: Private Military Tomorrow" games are destroying the market.

Only positive thing is that at least some part of the youth is able to hold onto its balls be it they decide to bang for the army... so it's all good.

Greetings fellas.  I just picked up the game and am about to pop in my 360.  Did anyone else pick it up or plan to?  I just read an IGN review giving it a 9.3/10 calling it one of the best first person shooters of the decade.  Halo 4 received a 9.8/10 but I'm not a Halo guy.

Gamespot gave H4 a 9/10 and Black Ops Dos an 8.  Ouch! ;)

I tend to agree with you though, Wiggster:  while I am a Halo guy to a degree, I think the CODs are more fun.  And they've just gotten better and better since the Modern Warfare yarn started.

I've still barely played Halo: Reach, the first Black Ops and Fallout: New Vegas :(  I need to finish at least one of them on a reasonable difficulty level before I can justify buying another game ...

... unless it's old-school Castlevania.  I'd literally pay $100 (or trade a quality bottle of Test E) for Symphony of the Night 2.

*sigh*  That'll never happen :(

Lets put it this way... Call of Duty is Call of Duty - if that makes any sense!

I liked it....  I think I may have liked the story of Black Ops 1 and MW3 more... but I liked the future elements in this game, and some of the weapons and toys!


Now to go back to Halo 4  ;D

I want to add something that I just discovered.... there are 4 (or even more) VERY DIFFERENT endings... like DRASTICALLY different depending on choices that you make (choices that you may think are not that big of a deal but they actually are)...  I didn't realize this till I started watching videos on youtube!

This makes it very different than past COD games!
