Update on my original post.......

Still utterly shocked at the poor sound of the guns etc. This game is meant to be a step forward.....it's far from that. It annoys me that after how many hundred of hours this game has had in game testing, why oh why do we have to put up with......1) crap sound effects 2) poor graphics 3) shadow areas where it is near impossible to see anyone hiding in them (and no it's nothing to do with setting up the contrast/colours before anyone jumps on that one) 3) The grenades that explode with the sound of a weak fart 4) unable to connect issues 5) lag is DIRE 6) when you do get into a game internet connection fluctuates like something on crack......full bar.....nope in the red......hold on 2 bars.....nope red again......nope full bar.....nope 1....and so the mad robotics on screen begin 7) So fed up of blatently being the first to reel of a load, on target, to end up dead after two shots 8) try playing a private match of TDM and try and work out how to select who's going on what team......it's near on impossible or luck 9) being thrown out during a game 10) menu screens not that exciting and a little poor in their work-around.

Right that's my moan for now.......will add more soon........I'm sure

As a musician with some experience at hearing these sounds come from electric drums and drum machines, ,  it sure sounds to me like some of these gun sounds are nothing more than an electric drum machine using different speeds and tones...lol

okay, so now bo2 is working again, and its great!

The sound isnt as good as mw3 in the sense that sound whoring is harder -> not great for enemy footsteps, but gun sounds and environment sound awesome.

as for the lag issues people talk about???LOL i think it is brilliant, i think that people who have shit internet are the ones that are havin problems at last!

better internet seems to finally = better gaming experience!

Yesterday I just bought a copy and at first when I played it I thought my headphones are brokenSmiley Happy Lol, those sound effects are just pathetic.

First map what I played was Drone and my  impression was...WTF am I playing DOOM??

Other maps were almost OK, but still seems that Turbine is only map where I should consider using AR instead of SMG's. Only close range combats.

To sum this up, it was fun to play it, but still I had a feeling like I'm playing 10 years old game. At least for me this game is too lugubrious/depressive. Just use more colours and better music But I think it is meant to be this kind of game.

Yet another update.......I now have sound problems. I can hear people talking fine.....I now have the sound, best described, of a "helicopter" in place of the ingame sounds I should be experiencing. Suffered majorly with the game crashing, freezing, menu screens being really slow to respond, menu screens freezing for 30-45 seconds at a time. It's time for the game developers to get a grip, post a MAJOR apology to everyone for releasing a game that is so far from completed and playable it's beyond a joke. I would STOP advertising this game anywhere, until the problems are sorted, as taking peoples hard earned cash for this rubbish is wrong.

I went to gamestop the other day to get a gift card and asked the guy if anyone had been coming in for a refund due to the ps3 problems.  He actually said "not aware of any ps3 problems."  I told him what is going on and his reply was "the only reason anyone has been asking for refunds or trade ins is due to them being dumb"

wow

Honestly guys it is so much better than you make it sound, I thought the same as you when I first got the game but now that I am used to it it is a really good game! Zombies is the best ever, multiplayer has way more possibilities and it's just a matter of time until people realise it's actually good!
