I pretty much agree with Steve on his thoughts. Maps seem so different from MW3 and I think they are way more brighter. Makes it easier to pick out the other team. I am still getting a few "WTF" moments but far less than MW3.

The maps are big (at least the ones I played last night) and I must have gotten shot from behind a million times. Could be from my noobness with the map layout.

So far the game tries to force you to play as a team more than a single "run and gun" style. I agree on the many many options for loadouts and scorestreaks. I am still trying to wrap my head around all the different customizations. I am not used to scorestreaks instead of kills so it will take awhile for that to sink in. Overall really like the direction they took this franchise for MP.

I fully admit that camping is a perfectly legitimate tactic. It's just annoying as hell to be up against that playing style, that's all.

While camping's legit, I don't think things like quick-scoping and spawn-trapping are. Spawn trapping would be the equivalent of constantly ambushing an enemy army's barracks or medical facility... how likely is that? And quick-scoping... when do you hear of snipers rushing the battlefield armed with only a sniper rifle in short-to-medium range combat?
I hear ya. I mean you don't want a full team of campers either. Using quick scopes and other aids admittedly suck. I remember when Medal of Honor first came out on pc, it didn't take long before there were mods out there for the Force Skin option that would make the opposition look like Ronald McDonald and became more or less, sitting ducks.

I actually just got a PS3 over the weekend and got AC III. I bought the NHL 2013 bundle but will be looking for other games eventually and Black Ops II will certainly be considered. I may get older discounted CoD or MoH games first in order to get re-acquainted with the game and by the time I'm ready for Black Ops II, it will more than likely be discounted by then.:D

Yep mw2 was ruined for me. When some hack unlocked every weapon in the game for me...

Still waiting for my copy. Hopefully it shows up in today's mail.


I know MW2 and COD4 are hacked, but I've played both over the last couple months and so far managed to avoid any problems. I occasionally encountered a hacked lobby in COD4, which I just backed out of as soon as I knew. (It was usually something obvious like a speed lobby).
With MW2, the only thing I've noticed is maybe the odd cheater here or there, but hard to prove.

How is the campaign? Is it different from the typical "follow me, do this" no choice crap that has plagued this series from the beginning?

I've held off on this purchase as the series has gotten very stagnant over the last, oh, four games (shame on me for being suckered each and every time though) as it is the EXACT same formula each time out with only different venues for the campaign and maps for the multi-player.

I would love to be convinced otherwise as my buddies are complaining about me not having it but I have no reason to buy it if it is not significantly different (better?) than mw3.

Did anyone else enjoy some Double XP goodness over the weekend? 2nd time in only a month... not too shabby.

How many of you have prestiged already? (I just hit my 2nd)

I have one gold gun and I'm pretty close to a second.
