I've heard some mixed reviews about this game, so I rented it from Redbox. After playing a few hours I have come to the conclusion that this game is ****ing awful. I will not be buying this call of duty. **** Activision and their decision not to try and innovate. I see the call of duty series going the same path as guitar hero.

I guess it's not selling quite as fast as MW3. That may be a sign that the market saturation has finally hit the series. From what I hear, Activision is riding a lot on the hopes of the new Bungie game for next gen.

As far as the single player goes, there was a lot of stuff that Treyarch wanted to do that they weren't allowed because it's "not Call of Duty". I'm betting the same probably holds true for the multiplayer. I'd like to think that when sales start going down and we make the jump to next gen systems, they'll allow Treyarch or someone to do a complete overhaul to the series. They'll probably just **** can it like they did Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero when they finished ****ting on them and let the turds dry, but one can hope. I like Call of Duty, and I don't see every new release as a hate crime like some, but I would like to see something new. A new engine especially. Maybe something built this millennia.

(i have no problem with your videos dennis)
What kind of router do you have? The Netgear routers are so easy to change the NAT type to open on.

Yes. I had the same thing happen to me and my friend had it happen to him in regards to the gun camp. Last night we were playing SnD and one player called in a UAV and it just never worked. Although I have heard that they are exploring the idea of increasing the point amount needed for a UAV because they are so common and easy to get it's mind numbing.

It definitely has. Well, that and the fact that people expect a lower quality game from Treyarch than Infinity Ward.

It's a netgear. My brother has tried it, and never could get it to work. So I haven't tried.

Its odd though, most of the time my nat is strict, every now and then it says it is open. So IDK if it is really the router or my ISP.

Meh, I kind of feel the opposite since MW2 and BO. IW has a better looking engine but I didn't like how MW2 and Mw3 played.

put your console into DMZ on your router and you wont have to bother with opening ports.

Google it. It's super simple. It's an actual setting that reads NAT type and you can set it to open, moderate, or strict. I'm pretty sure I set mine to open but every once in a while it will read moderate.

I have to admit, I REALLY like the Strike Force missions in single player, and I wish it was its own game type online.

Except, with a bit of an interface tweak, because it's horrifically complicated to switch between and move your units.

Uhg, I liked the idea but friendly AI was too retarded to make it fun. I usually just ended up taking control of a soldier and try to run through as the enemies myself so I could complete objectives. When I died, I just warped to the next soldier rinse and repeat. they were just a source of frustration more than anything. At least on hardened, I can only imagine on Veteran.

They need to patch the care package disappearing act. Sometimes when you re-roll it, it just disappears. I've also had care packages just disappear whenever I was trying to pick it up. I also hate how I cant use my gold clan tag because it has an ! in it. The hit detection is really bad too, as well as the whole connection issues. If you're host, it's awesome, if not, well you're ****ed.

They may not be disappearing. If a teammate has the black hat they can easily steal it from a distance.

What do you mean?
go into your router settings and under the port forward tab should be DMZ settings. youll need to put your consoles IP in those settings and that basically opens your console up so theres no port restrictions or anything.

you can google it for more precise instructions

I agree. I had it happen to me at least four times yesterday. I also had it happen once while trying to steal an enemies package. It's becoming more common.

Black hat can hack them, not make them vanish.

They will disappear if your own team mate steals them. I'm not sure if you'd get a notification for it or not. "Share package". I'm not saying there isn't a problem just a possibility.

I can agree with all of those.

Regardless, I thought the idea was cool, and with a few tweaks it could definitely be made into a really awesome game-type. I always thought a Starcraft/FPS hybrid would be awesome, and they came close to making something of the sort.

A 1v1 or 2v2 (each player on a team gets a 4 man squad, 2 turrets and a tank thingy) would be rad as ****. So long as the re-spawns on the tanks were kept in moderation.

Everyone complains about the knifing, but I actually like it. I **** it up as much as the next guy, but at least other people aren't lunging at me when they aren't even aiming at me. And yes I use black hat almost exclusively.
