finally played online with a friend tonight, it is so god awful.

Like said up above, there are so many ways to enter a building and to move around maps. I move constantly and I would get shot in the back 90% of my deaths or from some guy camping in a window up above the map or even better yet, some ****ing camping sitting in the corner when you run inside

Lag was terrible. I could put 2-3 rounds of a shotgun into a guy and he would knife me out of no where.

I still want to buy this game, but I dont think zombies alone is worth the 60 clams

Just another let down from treyarch

Yes, but not in the normal player rented and controlled fashion. You still get into games via matchmaking like the console p2p connections, just instead of it being hosted by some ******** home internet connection a dedicated machine hosts it.

I've stopped playing with randoms completely. Unless I an almost full team to roll with I don't play multiplayer for the simple fact I can't rely on other people to watch my back or be smart enough to not run straight into the other teams spawn causing it swap so I get shot in the *** as the end result.

So you prefer spawn camping/spawn rape? Most people don't...


Or you could just play search and destroy. No spawn problems there.

TL;DR you're a ****ing idiot with absolutely nothing interesting to say.

Why are you constantly making love to a corner?

Anyways, I was bored earlier in class and this is what I came up with:

Maps: The maps are terrible. They're too big and too complex. The reason why the COD4 maps are the best maps made is due to the fact that they're simple. These new maps have too many things to climb on or into (such as boxes or crates). Every map is multi-level. You have to look up, down, and all around. How many times have you been killed from someone sitting in a window like a nerd? Every room has a million ways to enter it. There are four wall rooms with 4 doors and two windows that can all be used to enter it. All of this caters to the average player because it makes the gameplay more about being lucky than using strategy and/or gun skill.

Kill Streaks: Other than maps, this is the worst part of the game. Not just this game, but all games since COD4. The ability to choose three killstreaks from about 15 options (I'm guessing off the top of my head) is dumb. When there were three killsteaks and everyone had the same thing, it created an even playing field. They were simple. One UAV, one airstrike, and one helicopter. You could counter act the UAV, you could hide from an airstrike, and you could easily shoot down a helicopter. These kill steaks still aided the user but did not provide a crutch for that player. Again, this is how they cater the game to the average video game player.

Perks: The perks system is terrible. They have counter-acts for your counter-acts. For example, you can call in a UAV. The other team can call in a counter-UAV. Now, you can use a perk that counter-acts their counter-UAV. The ability to take two perks from each grouping is terrible. Now a player can use Lightweight, Extreme Conditioning, Ghost, and Dead Silence all at the same time! Speaking of dead silence, you have to wait until level 38 to get it. You have to wait until level 38 in a game where almost everyone uses a headset and tries to sound whore, in order to get the one perk that makes your footsteps silent. Who's bright idea was that? Lastly, they broke up certain perks so you have no choice but to use multiple perks to accomplish the same task. The perks in COD4 were simple, they allowed a player to choose three abilities which they would like to have. This again focuses the game on actual skill and shooting players.

Gameplay: The spawns are terrible. If you're playing domination your team could have B and C captured and while laying on A they will spawn the opposition just feet from you. If the maps are going to be this large, spawn the opposition away from the living players. It takes too many bullets to kill someone. In some cases it takes almost a full clip to kill a player. Some people might argue that if you don't like it, play hardcore. Well that is not a solution because hardcore damage is too high and they take many other aspects of the game out in that setting. Also, there are limited game options. The grenades and tactical grenades are highly effective on this game, but I do not mind that. However the ability to take multiples is another aid to those who cannot kill people with their gun. One of the only ways to make the gameplay worse is to add vehicles.

If you don't agree, that's fine. Heck you might be that person that they're catering the game towards. This is just my opinion. I am by no means a serious gamer or one of those MLG nerds but I happen to be good at video games when I do play them.
Learn the maps, like in every other multiplayer shooter, and you'll find that you get surprised far less often. It's not that hard. I've only been playing for a few days and already I have good idea of the patterns people follow when moving around a map so I know the spots to look. You say you are "good" at games, then surely you realize that learning the maps and situational awareness is just as important as shooting the other better than he shoots you.

As for perks, as drex said, they work. Taking away gun handling perks in favor of weapon attachments, as well as splitting up many perks and using the Pick 10 system actually balances them pretty well. They also tweaked many of the perks people used to cheese. Ghost now only hides you from UAVs while you move. If you stop moving, you will show up on radar. I also think you grossly overestimate the amount of people who use headsets while playing this in pub matches. I would almost say its probably the opposite of your estimation and closer to 90% of people don't use headsets though that too is probably an exaggeration.

The part about taking too many bullets to kill someone is a good thing. It makes it possible to get into a gun fight and live, rethink tactics and kill them a better way than just running straight at each other. It makes the game less about who shoots first wins. Again, a full mag to kill is an exaggeration. Even with a few of the SMGs I can kill 2-3 players with a mag.

Anyway, as I said, you were spouting opinion of the game and because YOU don't like it you claimed that the game was terrible and catered to bad players. As if your opinion is the end all be all decider of gamedom. Not liking the game is fine. Claiming that those who do like it are some how inferior is just ludicrous. It's definitely a different game than COD4. There is more to keep track of in any given game and that can be confusing or at least a turn off to some, but I think it's completely manageable. If you don't like it, just don't play it. If you we're so unhappy with all the games since COD4, I don't understand why you bought it in the first place. It's not like they didn't have plenty of news coverage detailing what was going to be in the game before it ever came out.

I always use my Turtle Beaches. Makes any game better, and most of the pubs I party up with tend to use headsets instead of regular mics, so a high estimate isn't a bad guess.

Mics help if you are playing with a team. Turtle beaches killed my ears, so I bought a pair of Astro A40s. They are soo comfortable.

People are too critical. If you hate the game that much then sell it instead of whining like a little *****. And yes Dennis's videos are terrible....

If this were any other game, I'd say dennis was an impressively effective troll. But it's just typical CoD.
