If it didn't have a monthly subscription cost then I would be playing it with you every frigging weekend (i'm a busy guy so that's an estimate).

Now, I don't know if you knew but Lord Of The Rings Online has shifted its ways and is now free to play! I tried it for 20ish days and it was mad fun. You'll love it if you love the LOTR extended films and literature.

There's also Dungeons And Dragons online for free and I think other big budget games have shifted from their monthly subscription service.

Yeah that sucks. Doesn't that happen with almost every game on its first day launch? It's a good thing you didn't need an internet registration service to actually play the game. I remember reading about the issues Bioshock had when it first launched.

Hope you enjoy the game Plug and if I would have known you were that depressed and only played L4D2 then I would have bought it when they had it on steam for the price of 2 McDonald Meals.

Which one of you did this?! ;) (joking)

http://www.tomsguide.com/us/black-ops-call-of-duty,news-8675.html

"...robbers stole 100 copies of the game from GameStop before launch day.

At least two men, wielding handguns, hit a GameStop in Harford County just around closing time on Saturday night. Both the staff and the two unlucky customers were forced into the storage area, but were thankfully unharmed.

The robbers fled in a white minivan, which investigators believe may link this robbery to a previous GameStop holdup in Aberdeen.

The robbers made off with four cases filled with Call of Duty: Black Ops. Police are now asking for residents to call the sheriff's office if they were offered a copy of the game prior to the release date."

I thought MW2 was pretty fun. The single player was great. I do agree though, that this looks the same and probably plays the same.

Thats the beauty of Xmas... I'll make someone else get it for me;)

What exactly were you expecting? Something revolutionary? Hardly likely with the amount of money they knew they could make with minimal effort.

I miss the days of 20 hour long single player campaigns...

Just had a quick game. It's good. I thought for a min it would be DX11 since you can
AA at 16x rather than the usual 4x for all the previous versions. The graphics can be
quite detailed at times. I'll tell you something for nothing - all those that swear by BF, the
SP Versions now in BF are blueprint from COD. It's a shooter, and it does what it says on
the box. That keeps me happy

You need to elaborate what you want out of these games rather than spam that usual
shyte!

It's not just the PC platform that's suffering from this. All the consoles also. The game
Devs are just a lil too relaxed and aint pushing their imagination's and talents these days

Okay.....This is the low down.

After much tweaking and cursing I have the game running @ 90%, there is a huge problem with the optimisation of the game. It is using 100% of the CPU and not the GPU to render the game which is causing massive "Stuttering".....it is not a SERVER issue. There are plenty of the usual tweaks to the console to make it better. And by default the game is setup NOT to take advantage of multi core CPU's. You can amend this in the steam folder along with the max fps and internet packet commands which help the game alot.

Now while I played only about an hour of the previous game online (cleared the SP) I cannot compare Black Ops to the previous MW2.

The main thing I found with this game is the PACE of the game itself.....compared to BFBC2 it is so so quick and does take alot of getting used to. It is alot more run and gun and you could quickly say it is pure run and gun with no tactics involved at all.

Obviously knowing the maps is KEY and the more you play it the better you WILL get, the graphics on the maps IMHO are very good and detailed if one or two are flawed as in there are far too many points to be attacked from on some and just adds a slaughter mentality and no teamwork ensues and thats not counting the air stirkes. The animation on the enemy animation is a tad lacking and basic.

The hud is brilliant and very easy to navagate in game with any back up support available (from air strikes, RC bomb cars to sentry guns and attack dogs) at the touch of a key. The actual guns are brilliant and very detailed with each one handling and sounding so different which really is a great thing...and the guns are so big on screen it looks great. You can also fully custom it to your taste down to the recticle on the sights to the color of the default red dot!

I have my rank (Currently 33) on the butt of it and my player name on the side....with artic camo on the gun and Apache Red Face paint. All the custom options has its pro's and con's, if you are not that good at the game any points you get will be spent on guns as you will not waste it on custom crap. Also you have to unlock the same customs on EACH GUN....you cant unlock it once and use it across the board which is a tad stupid.....

The only thing WRECKING the game at the moment is the PERFORMANCE BUGS...there are some peeps with very little stuttering (ME for one) and then there are peeps getting massive unplayable spikes. TBH it is not on to release a game like this but then again the PC platform is not what it use to be. I mean there are over 1 million console players playing this compared to 70,000 PC gamers....I think I know where the priority lies with the dev's!!!

No doubt it will be patched but I would not hold my breath too long.

Raging and Negative post in 3...2..1:

I'm sick of all these games. I didn't even feel the need to play MW2 because they're all the same and I knew that. CoD4 = MW2 = BlackOps. Even Crysis at least had a more distinct story. I seriously believe Crysis was a better game than all of the CoD games. I'm sick of seeing un-originals**t like this sell 5.6millions copies in a day:

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/113/1133549p1.html

All they care about is hitting the biggest sales numbers for minimal effort into their games. People that buy these games seriously misguided. They use the sames**tty engine for EVERY f**king game. Cartoony looking crap. The reason these games typically run so well is because there is nothing to render in the first place. You can pull 200-300fps at all times with max graphics, which is sad.

People must be desperate for games if they're buying and actually LIKING thiss**t.

Plug, I liked your mini review. One question though. Do the guns finally sound cool and more lifelike? I hate all gun sounds from the previous COD games, they sound like cardboard guns (if that makes sense). Is the sound more like, BF2, BFBC2 or better?

Also, how long will you say the Single Player was? Was it worth it?

Ditto. All my friends who have it are saying the same thing about the lag/performance bugs. Hope it gets fixed by Christmas :-D.
