CoD Black Ops

    Sorry I haven't posted in a while, been addicted to CoD. Overall this is an excellent FPS which has fixed most issues associated with the others; this is not a review but simply a recognition of the few areas needing improvement in the game.

 A typo?
1. Spawning
    The very first thing that comes to mind is the first thing that happens to many people who jump into a match in progress: spawn killing. This game has some serious issues when it comes to people literally spawning within the sights of an enemy ready to shoot. This is probably the worst game I have ever played when it comes to this aspect. However there is word that the devs are working on this and should be fixed by the time the first patch comes out.

2. RC Car
    The RC-XD in itself isn't a problem and in fact is a fun way to rack up kills; the only problem is everyone uses it. Because it's a 3 kill perk it's way over used and starts giving the opponents an undeserved feeling that the map has now become 1 big cluster fuck. The solution to this would be to maybe make it a 4-5 killstreak perk, leveling the amount of people that choose it over say a counter-spy plane.

 
3. The Knife
     Just like in previous games it's a 1 hit kill that for some reason is faster then the speed of light. At this point in the CoD series it's becoming the most cheap, and unrealistic characteristic of the game. After pumping 5-6 shots in an enemy, if he's within arms reach...you're dead.

4. Drop Shots
    Greatly improved over other games in the series where enemies would magically reappear on the floor where they should be standing; this CoD has not completely eliminated it yet. It takes a longer time compared to others to go completely to the floor but drop shotting is a regular occurrence in this game.

 
    Despite my 4 points of negative feedback this game is DEFINITELY worth your money if you're into FPS's. I personally hated CoD until this game (I am extremely fed up with WW2 games being the only games on the market, and MW2 just being a glorified Counterstrike). This games attempt at originality (but yes I know there are more Vietnam games out there) is for sure better then the others and really the only good Cold War era game for sale.

  9. I've found alot of glitches in Black Ops, but overall I think it's a decent game. It's no Halo Reach, but still, a decent game. :)

  23. CoD is fun but its not perfect. I for one wish that there was a higher damage threshhold for death like in Halo or GOW.
