I think I'll have to give it a shot before I get too comfortable with the new game. My buddy tries to use it and tries to work up his sensitivity but I get too uncomfortable. Now would be a good time to try and commit to the change, though. Baby steps.
I've been having a decent time with the game. It's been more challenging than MW3 multiplayer was but I've grown to accept that it's a different game. I miss a lot of the Modern Warfare 3 elements, though. I would love to have some of those maps back (Carbon, Dome, Hardhat, Underground). So far, none of the BLOPS II maps have hit me as being excellent. I don't mind Raid, Cargo, or Yemen but everything else is kind of bleh. To be fair, my least favorite BLOPS II maps are still better than my least favorite MW3 maps (Bakara and Downturn were almost a guarantee of a bad game for me, having very limited long range skill and bad aim under pressure).
The biggest thing I want back is the MW3 challenge system. It was way easier to see what was going on, what challenges were nearing completion, and the rewards made it worthwhile to use different perks, guns, equipment, and killstreak systems. I loved Specialist so that is sad to see go.
Most of my complaints can be credited to my underwhelming skill level and general discomfort with the new format. I'm sure in time I will settle in and appreciate what Treyarch has done with the franchise.
The 3D mode is pretty cool, by the way. I haven't been daring enough to try it in multiplayer but I loaded up some bots and gave it a shot. It's a big improvement over the first Black Ops. I doubt I'll use it too frequently but I'm pleased with it, regardless. It should be a fun twist on things when playing local multiplayer.
On a side note, has anyone else been irritated by how hard it is to see the score popups? The plain white text against some of the brighter maps has been a real pain. There have been a couple of instances where my enemy dropped to the ground and I assumed he was dead and that I missed the kill confirmation. Admittedly, that is my own fault, but a more vivid color or outline would have really helped. For all I know it could just be how I have my display set up. I'm hanging a new screen (upgrading from the wall in the living room) today and I'm expecting the Disney WOW disc in the mail soon (hopefully tomorrow). I'll spend some time with it and hopefully it gets me where I need to be. My whites seem a bit blown out anyway. I'll reserve judgment until I get it properly calibrated. Since I haven't seen anyone else complaining about it, I'll assume that it's just my setup.
