Call of Duty Ghosts Wii U

I'm not having much problem with the controls, its still not right, but its playable. I never use AA. Its the terrible connection that I never had before. And the fact I play with the same people I have done for over three years and its all gone to pot. The only thing thats changed is the console.

Thanks for the reply, I genuinely appreciate it. As I've said many times before, I'm a huge Nintendo COD fan and always look forward to COD every year. I appreciate the fact that Treyarch still support Nintendo and their fan base on the Wii U. It's really the netcode that is the big issue, and I agree that is a problem across all platforms.

Personally, I believe Black Ops (the original) was the high point of COD as far as multiplayer was concerned. It just seemed nigh-on perfect. The netcode was just spot on and when I last checked my Wii play data I had put over 550 hours into it!

When I asked if you tested it, I was really meaning testing it online in the same conditions that we paly it at home. I certainly wasn't meaning to be facetious or disrespectful. It's just I imagine it would be a very different game played in a controlled environment across a LAN.

Anyway, thanks again for the reply, it is appreciated. I also hope you guys continue to support Nintendo platforms. Please also note, whilst I will complain about things, I always pick up the games - and I never bust anyone's balls over DLC haha

I have a question: does that mean that the rest of his items are known issues across the other consoles as well?

I understand everyone's frustration, as the game is a little twitchy. But as far as I can tell everyone is in a similar boat - one game you get murdered and the next you can go on a rampage.

But I can guarantee you that if the game was not tested it would be a whole lot worse.

I Can agree with a few of your points, except the wii mote feels perfect now. I don't get to use the wiimote much anymore. The wife likes watching tv and I got used to thumb sticks thanks to off tv play. But when the wife isn't watching tv I use my mote again.

Its kind of weird, wiimote on blops 2 sucked and I ended up not using it for the most part. But now it's the only way to play cod for me again.

THe he only bad thing for me in this game is the lag. Before the second, maybe third patch of blops 2 I would get one shot killed, have invisible people kill me and so forth. Also had a KD of .80. When the patch came through it was fine again and I finished with a KD well over 1.00.

IM guessing the same is going to happen for ghosts. My KD right now is .88. I'm getting insta killed by invisible people and it's unplayable right now. I'll just wait out the next patch or dedis before I take it seriously again. I have rubber bullet syndrome so I mostly go knife only because I can stab people from a mile away and it actually works.

I'm sure they test the games but under what conditions?

Who is the wiimote expert that tests how it feels? Thats what I'd like to know
