It's going to be the same as every other COD game, you'll all love it in the first week then soon people will figure out glitches and how to abuse overpowered guns and perks.

Anyone played campaign mode? Is it any good? (I never play this game online, my brother's into it but I did Black Ops 1 single player and it was cool, quit part way after getting bored through MW3 campaign).

I was addicted to COD4 and liked the first Black Ops but hated all the other games. They just made me frustrated. The reviews on this game seem really positive though so I think this might be the game that brings me back to the franchise.

Well I can already tell I'm going to like this one. I only put 6 hours of playing time into MW3 and I hated that game the moment I started playing. Completely different look and feel to black ops2.

Meh the multiplayer and campaign are a step below Halo 4 IMO. Only reason left to play this is for Zombies. That **** is top notch.

Is it as frustrating online as MW3 is?

Admittedly I haven't checked up on this game at all, preordered it on amazon. Judging by the commercials is online going to be a complete plane/chopper/etc **** show or is it the same as the last couple cods (which were still bad in their own way in that regard)?

I see the official forums has lots of complaints about the game or PS3 freezing while playing, just like BO did when it launched. Not going to be able to try it on mine until tonight but I did have freezing problems with BO which *mostly* cleared up after a couple patches.

No problems what so ever . I only have played like 2-3 hours though. There are campers though, but that was expected; only has been out for 1 day. Also surprised the servers are still holding up.

The only time I've froze so far was on the bus while playing zombies. No freezes or lags in TDM yet.

Oh yea if anyone hacks, glitches, boosts, make prolific emblems. They're striking down hard on people so don't do it.

Can't believe how smooth the game is right now only one day after release. Only experienced lag once but that was my connection. Also have only migrated host once, out of like 20 games.

Anyone like this idea to cut down on campers?

If a person stays in the same place for more than say, 5 seconds, their location is shown on the map even if UAV isnt activated?

I understand the want for this, but this really effects snipers.

The quality of the game is so much better than MW3.

I play mostly for the multiplayer, and I've found it enjoyable so far.

I don't like the idea of being able to take your knife out, though. I've already played against a guy that didn't even have a primary, he had 6 perks (lightweight and extreme conditioning are obviously 2 of them), running around and knifing people.

I wouldnt think so. Most people I see with snipers generally run around quite a bit. Atleast, the good ones move around quite a bit. Doesnt necessarily have to be 5 seconds, could be longer. But something along those lines

This is already incorporated I think. If you have Ninja or whatever the equivalent is you will show up on radar if you are standing around too long.

Game sounds great guys, thanks for the input. Quick question: do you have to own a new copy or buy an online pass, or can my bro and I share one copy on different systems for MP?

You can share the game between you and your bro's systems no problem. Obviously only one of you can play at one time.

EDIT: As far as consoles go...

Just got my copy at Gamestop 10 minutes ago. If the stupid eye doctor would hurry up I'd be able to get back to my dorm and play it before I have to go to work.

Oh and as it turns out, it seems Nuketown is in all initial release day copies. No need to have pre-ordered.

Although I always feel like Treyarch brings a better effort than Infinity Ward - at least in the last two match-ups.

This might be the game I play almost as much as COD 4.

I only logged about 51 hours total in MW3. I'm probably going to log 51 hours on this game before the weekend.
Indeed. Call of Duty has basically been the same game re-released for awhile now. And the Modern Military Shooter genre is so full of games now.

I'm still not convinced BLOPS2 is something i'll buy but i'm happy it's not exactly a rehash anymore.

Taking forever to get into a game when you're in a lobby for TDM. At least 3-5 min wait time. That's to be expected though on release day I guess.
