    I voted 'not sure yet' because I hate to go back on my words. If I had voted no and would later be interested in the game, buying it would make me an hypocrite.

    Obviously, I know no one cares, but I do.... a little

    I'll be getting it. It looks great. MW2 single player was great but a bit short. MW2 multi was great but the lack of dedi servers and anticheat really hurt it. So if black ops single player is on a par with MW2 single player and the multi has dedi servers which it apparently has then it's likely to be worth the price. Just as long as I can stop playing BF:BC2 long enough to give it any time that is!

    Oh Rly? I didn't get a chance to play the beta, I did know it was a mash-up of two games but I didn't know it made it crappy.

    Shame, tho if a demo is released for the 360 i'd obviously would need to try it first.

    I sorta had high hopes for that game.

    i'll probably buy it, MoH was a massive let down and i boycotted MW2 so as long as this has DS could be just what im looking for.

    BC2 is awesome but getting a little old, more maps needed.

    Nope.

    I owned all the COD games up to and including MW1. The way they shafted the PC players over MW2 was enough to convince me to never buy a product of theirs again. I signed up to the petition and am standing by it.

    it's frustration of BFBC2 plus aimlessness and killstreak dependent of CoD.

    when you get killed, no killcam, or any indication of where the shot came from. chat system is medieval. and even objective gametype feels like simply piling towards the objective, due to lack of teamwork coordination (no spotting, CoD style) enemy can hide at attacker's flank for the entire game.

    having came from BFBC2 to MoH Beta, i have managed to score high above everyone else in the couple objective games i played. simply due to i was playing sneaky and hide in one spot after arming an objective. Playing TDM felt similar to MW2, except a lot more frustrating due to random death without knowing the cause.

    I had to look up this guy to educate myself. I was amused and disgusted:

    This does explain a lot about World of Warcraft's recent content and direction.

    As for Black Ops, W@W was a bit bleh and was a tech support nightmare, it still doesn't work properly, so I have a deep mistrust of Treyarch.

    I'm up in the air with this one. The COD is dying like MOH did.

    COD4- I played for 6 months and loved it.
    COD5- I played off and on for a few months.
    COD6- I played for less than a month and sold it.

    COD4 was worth every penny. The rest could of bought me energy drinks to help me stay up all night playing COD4.

    $15 to have a mini Kel'Thuzad pet! The cost of an entire older game/Steam sale game for a small non-combat item which simply follows you around and looks cute! WORTH IT RITE?!

    Don't worry, I'll assume you still have your soul and have bought no such thing :thumb:

    I wasn't very excited about this game, but after seeing this video my answer is no.

    You'd be right :) I still play, but no celestial steeds have been purchased, and much ranting has been had about all the unnecessary money-grabbing timesinks present in endgame play.

    I change my answer to no. Congratulations Treyarch for taking yet another IW game and reskinning it.

    Totally OT question, have they added anything with Achievement Points yet? When I last played like a year ago they were still pointless e-peen expanders.

    Ditto, except I always call him Knobby Crotchitch, no idea why though.
