Re: The Black Ops 2 thread
I just picked up this game last night. I played my son in a split-screen private match and he kicked my ass so my first impression wasn't great.
I guess I'm one of those rare folks who dug MW3. I liked the frantic pace and the action of TDM. I also dug the super loud hit markers. They were like the bells and whistles of a slot machine for me.
After getting over the pain of losing to my son - the camper - I setttled into a few games of multiplayer TDM. I REALLY like the customization you can do with your classes. I actually enjoyed some of the maps. I played the carrier a lot and did well moving from cover to cover. I've only unlocked two assault rifles, but I liked them. Like MW3, its going to take me a while to get a feel for the flow of the games before I get good with my favorite class - the shotguns. From what I've seen so far, most engagements are at medium range so I'm not sure this class will be too effective. Playing zombies is also fun. I like the whole storyline and "Johnny cab" bus concept. As Grip can attest, I suck at this part of the game, but it is a lot of fun. Best of all, I've had no lag issues at all....so far.
As far as dislikes go, I'm finding it hard to see opponents. They don't stand out like they do in MW3 and I wish the hit markers sounded louder like in MW3.
Overall, it seems like this game is a cross b/n MW3 and BF2 (without the ability to climb into vehicles). I'm liking it so far.
