look forward to seeing you all on dyeknom langdon and i, partied up for a little bit but there were some deff. issuses with parties last night evrytime we moved on to the next game it seems like it would tell us your party is no longer valid so we would have to regroup after almost every match.

WoW that blows. So much for the "dedicated" servers. I have plenty of words going through my head....none of them I should repeat here or in front of my 4 year old.

I *might* be on tonight....no promises....I have the 4 year old all night.

Unless somehow they steal the IW engine from MW2, graphically this game is complete and utter shit. Multiplayer encourages camping and there is no dedicated servers. This almost as bad as Medal of Honor's multiplayer.

Got a regular version at TRU this morning and my hardened copy from Amazon is doing circles around the country.

MP doesn't seem great but I'm only basing that on about an hour of play. Campaign seems good...did the first two lvls. Still looking forward to Zombies.

Seriously is this game as good as advertised?

No fred, the multiplayer is NOT as good as advertised.

I have high hopes for the single player to justify my hardened edition purchase.

Sounds like some of you guys are on the fence. But you all loved MW2 for the longest time, and this is like a 180 from that game. Maybe its just taking time to adjust right now?

Oh, I'm adjusted just fine. I just do not like it at all, just like I stopped liking CoD4's multiplayer as a result of the mass amount of grenade spam.

Things I like: Invite system, unlock system (though stuff costs way too much and never mentioned you have to purchase PRO perks too), levels are pretty balanced, no more warp-knifes, fire damage + new perks (REVIVES!).

Things I dislike: P2P servers result in stupid amounts of lag, random spawn points are absurd, When the lobby closes the party must reform, Ugly map design, damage is a bit off, INSANE amount of camping.

Don't like P2P servers, because a big thing was supposed to be Ded. Servers, which appears to just be on PC (which I don't get because PS3/360 gamers fill up the majority of the buyers, correct?).

The camping I understand though because people are still getting a feel of the maps. It takes a good amount of time to be comfortable enough to run and gun without getting lost or putting yourself in stupid spots.

Well I picked up Black Ops at TRU today, but it's a Xmas present so I won't be joining the fun until after Xmas. I'll be playing MW2 until then I guess. :(

Essentially, yes. I buy my video games (because I know what I want and like to find deals to get them cheap) and give them to the wife who wraps them up and puts them under the tree for me.

picked up a standard copy today at kmart. Went there at noon and there were no hardened left at all.

This game rocks so fucking hard. There is 2 PLAYER split screen multiplayer and zombies ONLINE! Played both and I had a great time. I chose this game instead of sleeping today...:drool:

I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I love to open presents on xmas day even if I know what it is I will wait.

They took everything that was good about MW2 and pretty much put it through some kind of rough sanding machine and screwed every bit of the polish up.

No fred, the multiplayer is NOT as good as advertised.

I have the same hopes for single player, Zombies was fun though. I will give it that for all the 6 rounds Hito and I did.

Sounds like some of you guys are on the fence. But you all loved MW2 for the longest time, and this is like a 180 from that game. Maybe its just taking time to adjust right now?

Adjusting isn't too bad, it's more the hit detection, the host selection, grenade indicators not indicating there is a grenade until you're in the killzone, noob tubes, the M16 with 3RB being the first assault rifle you're given for free which everybody proceeds to use because it's pretty much a one hit kill. I could go on but I have more quotes to reply to.

Oh, I'm adjusted just fine. I just do not like it at all, just like I stopped liking CoD4's multiplayer as a result of the mass amount of grenade spam.

Things I like: Invite system, unlock system (though stuff costs way too much and never mentioned you have to purchase PRO perks too), levels are pretty balanced, no more warp-knifes, fire damage + new perks (REVIVES!).

Things I dislike: P2P servers result in stupid amounts of lag, random spawn points are absurd, When the lobby closes the party must reform, Ugly map design, damage is a bit off, INSANE amount of camping.

The map design is terrible, they invite so much more camping per square foot of map than anything else. If you're playing Array and they camp out by the rocks, you aren't winning against them without a killstreak or two. If you're playing WMD and they camp the catwalk you aren't evicting them out of there. Nuketown looks like a 5 year old created the map for the original Rainbow Six, it's that fucking terrible. Nuketown is also smaller than Rust, how that is possible I don't have a clue.

Don't like P2P servers, because a big thing was supposed to be Ded. Servers, which appears to just be on PC (which I don't get because PS3/360 gamers fill up the majority of the buyers, correct?).

The camping I understand though because people are still getting a feel of the maps. It takes a good amount of time to be comfortable enough to run and gun without getting lost or putting yourself in stupid spots.

The difference between camping in MW2 and camping in Black Ops is that your host is probably much better in MW2, you stand a chance noob tubing a camper on the better designed maps in MW2 and you're not given the M16 as your very first assault rifle in MW2.

it's not the surprise... it's the anticipation. Looking forward to finally playing the game. Plus I would rather get a gift I know I want than something she thinks I want.

I don't know what the hell is going on with this game, but last night I tried (after I got the invite from Kaiser, I think) to join every CAG on my friends list game, and was rejected with a "server full" "game full" or "you have a newer version of the playlist (WTF!)" message. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. If I can't play with CAGs, I'm doomed.

They definitely have some things to iron out.

I was pretty interesting to see my entire friends list playing black ops last night. Out of the 30+ people online, all were trying out the new game except for cheapfrag :cry:. Hurry up xmas.

@jax

although our Zombie match went OK, I thought. is there a way to "finish" those levels? or do you just get wave after wave after wave after wave?

I found out yesterday that the newer playlist version just means that they were playing a different gametype (headquarters, demolition, etc) and you were not able to join because you were not a high enough level.
