First off, this is not a troll post. I am just voicing my extreme disdain for this game, franchise and the low standards we have come to accept in gaming. Just want to make that clear.
I can't believe how incredibly SHATTERED the multiplayer is in this "game". Actually, calling it a game is an insult to other games that are good and worth your time. This is the most mindless, lemming-worthy mess I have ever experienced on Xbox 360. It boggles my mind to no end how a company like Treyarch puts out a lazy effort such as this. Has everyone's standards gone so low in gaming where you will all buy this game like cattle no matter how braindead a game is?
Let's go over the horrendous bullshit in this game, shall we?
- Quite possibly the worst spawning system I have ever seen in a first person shooter. If I had a dollar for every time I immediately get shot in the back when I spawn, I would have enough money to buy the CoD franchise and throw it into hell where it belongs. Hell, anytime I do that to another player I don't feel any satisfaction in killing the other player. It feels cheap and unfair. Any time you try and formulate a strategy, you get killed by a random ass guy who happened to spawn 5 feet away from you. This is unforgivable at this point in the CoD franchise. This is what, the 8th or so CoD game and they still can't get it right? Give me a break.
- Barely any innovation. Am I the only one that sees that this is the same damn CoD game since Modern Warfare 1 was released? Sure, the pick 10 is nice.........but that is it really. And that isn't even really innovation, that is just allowing you to have the basic freedom you should have in the first place to customize your gaming experience. That alone does not equal a great game or a 10/10 review. This is the kind of thing you should expect to have by default when you buy it. The game is still all the same ridiculous kill streak rewards (if you have 10+ kills in a row, you probably do not need something to help boost your kill count or help you spawn kill with Dragonfire helicopter gunner etc. Seems a little stupid if you ask me.) and overpowered SMG's that make nearly every other gun useless.
- The hit detection and lag is THE worst in any FPS. This game wins the award, hands down. There is a good 1-2 second delay for anything going on in the game. What that means is that what you are seeing on the screen isn't actually happening. The best part is that the evidence is shown on the killcams, where the bullshit is clear as day. You will get killed around corners as you run for cover, which makes it look like you got shot through four walls that are ten feet thick. The hit detection is so bad, I don't know where to begin. You will shoot them repeatedly over and over and over and get no hitmarkers, or you will magically hipfire one bullet and somehow kill them instantly. There is no consistancy whatsoever. Black Ops 2 is 75 percent lucksack hit detection, random lucky spawns and boring gameplay. Why can't we all ask for more for the 60 bucks we plop down every year?
