I hope it's better than the MW2 original version - all we had for the first 4 months of that game was red & yellow bar games.
I started playing in December 2009 on Modern Warfare 2. I got nothing but 4 bar connections and the rare 3 bar connection, up until about May, when the player count started dropping like flies (which seemed to coincide with the beginning of a plague of the explosives spam, now all too abundant in Modern Warfare 2).
Black Ops stunk.
I found the entire game boring from Campaign to MP.
Horrid connectivity. Crummy visuals. Lousy arsenal with only a few viable gun choices. Boring, uninspired, impractical killstreaks (Mortar Team, Valkyrie Rockets). The fact that Ghost threw the Blue perk tier off balance, etc.
No doubt about it mate.
I did play the PS3 version at a mates house and I could easily tell how inferior the PS3 version was compared to the XBOX 360.
What baffles me is how the PS3 players handled the terrible frame rate lag, failed host migrations and pretty much the terrible port Treyarch developed for the PS3.
I know a few mates who just gave up on the game a couple of months after Black Ops launched.
I hope you guys don't get the short end of the stick for MW3.
