As someone who sat out mw3 because I knew what it was gonna be (and bf3 was just that much more fun), and even swore off COD because I knew what the series degraded to, I went I to BO2 with low expectations and was pleasantly surprised at how solid it was. All the pieces are there and for the first few days things were fine and I could see the big picture. Then the lag hit.
I have my qualms with the game but if the lag issue weren't there I'd say this is the best COD since 4.
First CoD I played was 2 but first MP was CoD4 a month after it's initial release. (Commercials looked awesome had to buy it.) As for being burned out I don't think so, I liked this games campaign a lot but really I'm sick of this lag compensation. It's my only real gripe with this game. It's unreal at how bad it is in this game. I've never played an online shooter that was this messed up. I've had problems with MW3's lag compensation from time to time but they never appeared to be as bad as this call of duty. I could go from game to game in black ops 2 and quit repeatedly just because of a sponge who kills you instantly. You want to know why people back out of games so much? It's probably in part due to lag compensation. Why should we have to tolerate this?
Bad hit marking and lag comp killing gaming yeah had great fun in mw2 and blops1....mw3 the issues started and never really corrected itself and now blops2 played for game time sadly 3days and cant say ive had any enjoyment only frustrating tv screen shout hell...... Cant see me buying anymore map packs because i feel the game has problems that will not be fixed as they were in MW3.....Poor game shame could of been great....Maybe they might start listening to the really community one day. One day.
I signed up here just to say this: I am not a gamer. I am a call of dutier. No other games for me. I know it's sad but I love this franchise soo much and look forward to every new edition. I spend hours and days playing this...... Treyarch.. you have hurt me, hurt me bad. I will never forgive you. I have started calling this game "Shoot you in the back ops 2." How could you stuff it up soo badly. After reaching level 55 and actually doing quite well I realised that I was playing out of habit and that not only was I not enjoying it (a true surprise), but that I was hating it. My hair started falling out, I developed stomach ulcers and I am thinking about a radiology session to see if I have stress induced cancer caused by the nausiating pile of utter poo you have spewed forth. I have never complained before... I love the franchise to much...I take the good with the bad. But.....
You have decimated something that was special to me and now there is only one thing for it...I must sell my XBOX and grow up..never to game again. I hope Bill Gates reads this and kills you.
