It is. There's story mode, survival mode, 4 on 4 "Grief mode", theater mode, and supposedly there's one more mode that hasn't been revealed yet but I could be wrong about that.

Haven't spoiled anything about Black Ops II. Gonna get it on launch day probably. I'll probably hate it in a month but whatever.

Call of Duty 4 still remains the best Call of Duty. Although, I did enjoy Black Ops.

Pretty not be ****in' invisible people.

From the in game play trailer it's already shifted towards Battlefield with their ****** gun sounds.

By the sounds of the zombie game it's going to surpass L4D.. Easily.

Just incase anybody is looking, the Care Package edition seems to be becoming pretty scarce. I know Amazon has some left, but I'm not sure how many. EB Games, Best Buy and other places were all sold out for both consoles. I settled for an XBOX edition. Hopefully the remote control helicopter doesn't suck, though I'm not holding my breath.

IGN had an 8 minute multiplayer trailer. You can just see the different philosophy Treyarch has compared to IW in regards to map design. That BO2 map is so clean. I enjoy that when I run down a tunnel, I don't have to check if some dude is hiding behind 8 different assorted burned cars/trash cans. That one MW3 map that's just a destroyed New York street/subway(can't remember the name) is the worst multiplayer map I've ever played in any game, ever. Literally dozens of places to lay down with a silencer and camp. So dumb.

Didn't have internet this past week due to Sandy, so I went back to BO to play zombies for the first time since MW3 came out, and boy was I rusty. But I've always been lame at zombies so it wasn't so surprising

Played the newest map "Call of the Dead" ... That George Romero zombie is ****ing annoying

One major thing thats holding me back from wanting this game, has nothing to do with the game itself.

Its the community of people who play it. Been playing since MW1 and have noticed that each year more and more people camp for killstreaks and never bother trying to play the objective.

Well they focused a lot on that problem. They aren't killstreaks anymore they're scorestreaks. So for example if I have UAV selected , I would need 200 points lets say. To get these points you could do pretty much anything to get it like capturing an objective, defending one, assists, kills, killing a flag carrier, killing a bomb planter, planting a bomb, defusing a bomb etc. So you may need 4 kills to get the UAV or you could get 1 kill and a bomb defuse to get it . So the people that camp are going to have a harder time getting scorestreaks if they just go for kills .

Yeah, I love that new mechanism.

There's also, I think, the fact that people using ghost are only untraceable IF they are moving. That at least eliminate campers standing still in a corner of the map.

I'm seriously considering buying this game. I hated MW3 and sold it after barely a day of play, yet I'm still playing BO from time to time and enjoys it despite racking up over 15 days of play over the last 2 years. I think we won't be disappointed with Treyarch. At least, they seemed to take into account what the community disliked about BO and they tried to improve BO2 in these aspects.

I think camping has become so ingrained among players that it's not going to go away. Post-game they'll still be touting their k/d ratio, even if they lost. These people don't cate about winning or losing, just their k/d ratio.

I like the new sound effects. Sounds more realistic than BO.

Yeah I get that and have read how the streaks will work this time around. There are two things at other end of that spectrum, people are going to be charging at flags and dying over and over feeding the streaks for the other team. As well as teammates that will never leave the starting spawn.

To get around the issue of being on the radar if youre not moving, people will learn to just strafe in a corner like they do behind head glitch spots now. MW2 had it right with the perks outside of commando, oma/dangerclose and scavenger/dangerclose. If you wanted to use a ghost perk you had to sacrifice and vice versa.

I know im complaining a lot but I play cod a good amount and MW3/Activision made me hate the series as a whole.
