- Some sound effects were decent, but I didn't like the gun sounds and the footstep noise was laughable
I'm not trying to troll here, just my honest opinion, if you liked the game then by all means enjoy it, all I know is that TO ME the series went downhill pretty badly after MW1.
This is just my opinion on it.
I personally dont feel its as good as MW, activisions always seemed more polished and realistic. I think some like treyarch better because of zombies and some zany wacky kill streaks they find fun. I play with some close friends who love treyarch because of the zombies, and unrealistic things they add. Its more light hearted. One of my friends however will not be leaving mw3 for the reasons mentioned. He does not like treyarch and is probably the best player i know.
With that said I am enjoying blops 2 and it is extremely fun and will grow on you.
I agree with the maps, everyone is raving about the maps, the map ideas are fantastic, i love the night club, the boat is a cool idea, same with the mansion, some friends were raving how cool that mansion is. But my problem is with the design, alot of people seem to be camping when i play simply because their scared to move, you move into a room and their is 5 entry ways someone else can enter and kill you, or a bunch of dark corners someone can sit. MW3 maps were more basic, but they were fun and i was not constantly worried about someone coming from behind and shooting me in the back as soon as i entered a room or moved. The perches, and objects for people to hide behind is also abundant. People are constantly perched on ledges, or rooftops, just sitting and camping, or behind a trash bin or boulder in a long hallway waiting for someone to come down that hallway or trail. So while I like treyarch map ideas, I dont overly care for the map design.
My other issue is the hit detection and lag, in mw3 i never had many lag issues, and nobody ever was rage quitting. Now in blops its constant migration a few games were unplayable. I also just hate how skimpy the hardcore modes are, I kind of felt they were just to lazy to include any more.
I still have a blast but with any new call of duty their seems to be two camps typically, those who defend it to mercilessly and those that dont like it or the changes.
I enjoy the game and have no regrets purchasing, but I do feel treyarch is behind activision when it comes to the basics.
And none of this is in reference to this forum, everyone on here is always good to discuss the game with.Edited by Murilo - 11/17/12 at 6:24am
