 Multiplayer finally balanced.

| | See all Midgeamoo's reviews (3)

I really don't know where all these mw2 fans have come from, last time i checked the multiplayer in that was the worst balanced mp of any of the CoD titles.

I honest to god don't understand how people are saying that it's not better, unless these people are the ones that actually enjoy camping, boosting and quickscoping every game they play.

Black ops multiplayer has balanced uncountable atrocities that infinity ward never bothered to patch in mw2.

Weapons - Burst fire weapons are now A LOT less powerful and are on par with other assault rifles/smgs.
Snipers are now for sniping and not for running around like some try hard lunatic and quickscoping your way to a funny game winning kill.
Shotguns are now a primary weapon and are even less powerful than the mw2 secondary shotguns! And what's more is they still fit in perfectly.
Launchers/explosives in general are less powerful and if they still really annoy you there's the option of the flak jacket perk.

Killstreaks - The main improvement to killstreaks is that they now do not stack with each other. You must earn all your killstreaks via your gun/grenades/melee etc, not your other killstreaks, meaning a 7 killstreak reward does not soon turn into a 25 kill streak reward. This promotes run and gunning a lot more and stops people cowering in a corner letting their streaks do the work. Also apart from chopper gunner, gunship and maybe attack dogs, they are quite easy to avoid if you know what you are doing.

Perks - Stopping power has now been taken out meaning everybody's guns have the same power, and you can now choose between many diverse classes without sacrificing your firepower drastically, and losing in gunfights to anybody that chooses the campy stopping power option. There's no more slight of hand pro for snipers, and no more commando/commando pro. I think that's self explanatory.

Wager Matches -
These are great fun, and are extremely tense if the bets are high. The amount of times you are left screaming in excitement, dread and frustration at being tomahawked in the back tells me that these are going to be a great new addition to the CoD franchise.

The maps are the right size, not too big not too small (spare nuke town) and a lot are symmetrical/well balanced meaning one side does not have advantage over the other just due to spawn points. The spawns are a bit off, but still preferable to modern warfare 2's and Treyarch are always good at listening to their community and so will probably fix it if it shows to be too much of an issue.

That said, there is still the classic call of duty 'bs' that you will get in any title, people surviving too much, you surviving too little, and being shot round corners etc, i just hope treyarch realise that this is still present, and will find a way around it.

Also the theater is pretty cool (yet i'm a bit confused on how to save my films permanently without putting them on my file share.) and is on a par to halo's.

The ranking system and codpoints system is interesting, and you are always surrounded by a vast choice of what to buy with your money, there are also hundreds of personalization options if you don't want to bother buying any more weapons than what you currently have.

ok lets get this straight I like to play games on my own, with noone else, all by myself. ill start on normal and work my way up the difficulties, i do buy extra content but again only if its 1 player stuff

I have no wish to talk to strangers and debate the fastest recoil of a pistol or which rifle reloads the quickest to help your kill streak, blah blah blah BORING !! who cares how many faceless online buddys you have or how many times you have killed them YAWN. and look how high your gamerscore is. SAD !!

Games are getting more and more biased to online gaming now and most games are fairly short. I really think the onlne features should be an after thought rather than the 1 player experience which seems to be the part of the game that suffers these days which is a shame, id love to see how many more campaign levels they could fit on a disc with no online maps cluttering up the storage space.

how about a seperate online disc that all the single spotty people can buy so they can kid themselves that RUDEGIRL216 from the states is actually their friend

I play the campaign on a game and thats it. and the campaign on this game rocks. Ok its done in a few hours but thats what we are used to, its a bit like watching a film these days, some you will watch again others you wont, just buy it enjoy it at your leisure and then trade it in, thats what ill be doing whilst waiting for the next batch of games to come out.

 Not a patch on MW2

Before I start I have given it 2 stars (I have not played story mode)


Constant running into enemy spawns and being killed

Enemy's spawning right next to me and killing

Putting half a clip into a guy and the hits are registering and then he just runs off??

Terrible recoil on most of the guns

Cartoony graphics

Sniper rifles almost impossible to use

Headshots not registering (you hear the ping noise but guy just runs off)

Constantly being booted out of games when in a small or large party

all in all not a patch on mw2..... I would buy this game when its gone to about 20 pounds as its not worth any more especially not the 44.99 that i paid.

Bring back infinity ward this game is truely shocking online

 Got old... quick

Top 100 Games Reviewer

For me, this is is the first Call Of Duty game that hasn't lasted the year up until the next installment - the multiplayer is too frustrating and tedious (spawn killing, spawning randomly) to go the distance until next November. So unfortunately it's traded in. Shame really, as the Campaign was actually really good, I enjoyed the story with twists and turns including a flashback back to the end of WWII.
But the multiplayer lets it down. Being able to buy your weapons and attachments that you actually want is a massive bonus and being able to customise your badge etc is a treat. Noob tubing has been dumbed down from MW2 but unfortunately other issues replace this, especially spawning. Spawning randomly shouldn't happen, what is the point in killin someone only to have them spawn right behind you to get you back? It's like Treyarch are giving the people you've killed a chance to get you back - like an even stevens - that's no fun at all. Another issue is with the weapons - no they aren't out of date, but the likes of the FAMAS (which I always used in MW2) has been completely changed from a 3 bullet burst to a jittering pain in the backside.
At the end of the day it's worth buying when the price comes down, especially for the campaign because as well as the story being brilliant, it actually takes a while to complete - it isn't a rush job - unfortunately the Multiplayer suffers because of this.

I bought this game the day it came out and got straight to playing it. My first impressions were not good, I first noticed the graphics, which are far below the standards of mw2 and other games released from now to about a year ago. I tried to ignore the shoddy graphics as I knew I would adjust to them soon enough. After about an hours gameplay, I had experienced graphical and mechanical glitches, a long with bad spawns and terrible maps. I carried on playing it for about 4 more days, hoping it would grow on me. It didn't. This game was supposed to have topped mw2, eliminating over powered weapons, reducing camping, and fixing the faults the other faults mw2 was riddled with, but the mp5 is by far over powered, and there is many maps with many, many camping spots. It plays like call of duty 5, the worst call of duty ever made in my opinion.. Treyarch need a lesson in graphical and gameplay design from the lads at Infinity Ward.. what were activision thinking getting rid of IW completely and putting these frauds up to the job in making the biggest selling game of all time? Really disappointed.
