People will always complain unfortunately. You pretty much hit the nail on the head as far as the whining goes. I play them out until the nest installation (even though I go back to all of them and play them occasionally).
For me they're all still playable except for w@w. I can never get into an un-hacked lobby. COD4 is about 50/50.
All cod's have had there own issues, you can never please everyone.
I have played and enjoyed all of the cods since mw and although I got a bit bored of mw3 I did enjoy them all.
This version though in its current state has got to be the most frustrating out of all of them. I think they caterd far too much to the mlg/gb people and it has alienated quite a lot of people already. The spawn killing is ridiculous, I think atleast a third of my deaths are due to it. There is alot of good idea's in this game but not everyone wants to be or even cares about competition play.
The hardcore playlists are also a joke and over half of the hardcore people I play with have sold their copy and gone back to mw3.
In BO2 the multiplayer maps are all way too small - there needs to be small maps AND medium maps AND large maps. The way they are going all of the maps in BO3 will be the same size as 'Nuketown'.
In BO1 all of the perks were available to choose when you unlocked 'create a class' - it allowed the player to choose what type of player you wanted to be - rusher, tank, flanker or camper.
But in BO2 the perks are gated again, with Ghost unlocked at level 55 - ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!
What perk have ever been gated until the highest rank in the game?
If that wasn't enough the devs have nerfed Ghost to such an extent that it's pretty damn near useless.
I started playing cod when MW2 came out, loved that but so full of hackers now that i dont have the game anymore.
I liked Black Ops straight away and didnt really notice any problems with it to be honest but back then i didnt play as much as i do now.
Played MW3 for a couple of days when it came out and decided i didnt really like it and went back to BO, but started playing it again when the servers went down the other month and thought it was alright.
BO2 is a brill game, would be better if it werent for all the issues, now all i get is the occasional lag issues though. In all previous cod's my k/d has been below 1(didnt really care about it as i played the objective) but now its above 1 so i want it to stay that way but when you get lag cheats its so frustrating.
