First off, As the title says - I am a mature gamer - 29 years old. I enjoy games, plain and simple. I own a buisness and enjoy my downtime.
I've taken some time to play the game and not post, because I know the game was very new and would have issues - this is a guarentee. So now a bit of time has passed I must make my rant since not much is being worked on it seems like, at least to use "consumers" who are being left in the dark.
Never had any issues with this game up until recently - the last few days to be exact. I finally feel the need to vent, its starting to get a bit irritating.
I play only HC TDM - first off, let me state my opinion on this.
-HC is almost identical to core now, they really messed it up, Why? Well because HC was ALWAYS a different paced game, Im sorry to the guys who hated the spawn delay, but that was what slowed HC pace down - it was known for this.
-The bullets still take half a clip, sometimes less sometimes more - its so inconsistent its a bit of a joke. Im sure its a bullet or 2 less than it takes to kill in core, this is one of the main aspects of HC and it is inconsistent.
-The radar is removed - ok, what does that matter? UAVS are CONSTANTLY UP so again, this makes gameplay simular to core.
Now let me rant about the gameplay in general.
-Does Ghost even work? I did a few tests and it seems like it does not work at times, I dont get it?
- Footsteps - I've played competitivley for quite some time, I use to play alot of Quake 3 back in the day. Black ops is a first person shooter game, why would you remove this - this makes absolutley no sense for a FPS game, I dont care who trys to explain this, there is no proper explination. This is the FIRST FPS game I have ever played that removed footsteps. And dont tell me they are still audible because I cant hear **** on my Headset, nor can I hear anything on my $6700 surround sound - its useless. This also makes Awarness and dead slient a waste - a filler if you ask me.
-The Maps, well.. I have sucked it up and got use to them, a few of them are a complete joke. Carrier, what a joke - there is no vision, someone can be literally 2 feet away and blend in to the textures at ease - and dont say "THATS HOW IT IS IN REAL LIFE, YOU CAMOFLAUGE WHEN AT WAR".
Ok, how about I wear a Khaki jump suit and lay in the desert, Im invisible now right? No, of course you can still see me. And If I wore gray and stood beside a concrete wall, you will still see me as well.
Turbine - that must of been a filler. Its big, which is fine - but poorly laid out in my opinion.
-Weapon damage, well lets just say I have seen MANY times where I was killed with 1 bullet of a pistol and It takes me 3 bullets to kill with my scorpion/pdw - just sayin.
There was quite a few more, but some have now been fixed.
Now on to my complaints with the recent fixes.
- Something was done with the hit detection, Im not quite sure what - but something was changed. It could be that they are messing with the network code, but this game feels as if it was changed - I hope someone can help figure out what it is they did or maybe they can give us guys who pay for thier products a bit of an update so we can understand.
Note to treyarch
I understand its hard to satisfy everyone, I get it.. but when the same complaints are happening over and over - they MUST be addressed. So why dont you address some issues - and if you are, acknowledge people and let them know, otherwise your sales will be down next time around - and yes no matter what amount of dollar figure the company brings in, sales and money drops are always taken seriously. So take this game a bit more serious, its a fun game that could be alot better with some tweaks.
