So where are the reviews? Does that mean that the game will suck?

I bought this cause the zombie campaign looked cool, and I've always liked treyarch's zombie mode :). I hope the rest is good as well, I skipped the last few MW games, but I've been liking treyarch's.

I work in Tesco in an average-sized town and there was a line of around 50 of the little geeks waiting for the midnight launch. The stench of virginity was overpowering.

Wow.. the bump to 60 frames per second is AMAZING.. the game plays soooo much nicer, smoother..

I have to be honest here.. I was VERY skeptical. But Treyarch has done it again.. this game is rocking!

The single player is really something that is completely pushing the boundaries of first person shooter.. from both story telling approach, to consequences, to multiple endings that are completely different, to multiplayer that is now INSANELY customizable and really really great to play.

Best COD to date!!! my micro review:

The Good:
  • Like Boz said, graphics are butter smooth and animations (facial ones in specific) are great!
  • Great variety of weapons and customization options in SP/MP
  • Incredible dynamic storyline alternating between two time periods.
  • Most impressive voice acting ever on any shooter (IMHO at least)
  • Great cinematic sequences, perfectly blended into the action.
  • The rendition of historical characters is no less than awesome,
    Spoiler
  • Excellent sound and positioning (I'm using Tritton headphones).
  • The tactical missions are a perfect complement to the shooting action, the execution and gameplay is terrific.


The not so Good:

  • For a native Spanish speaker, some of the Spanish dialogue (may be a 40% of the game) is bad, repetitive and dull, that's not good for a game of this budget and level of polish.
  • Trying to be cinematic, some sequences are heavy scripted.
  • Not trying to sound like a hippie but there's much anger int his game :p, everyone is angry.



Well, that's my opinion so far, I'm going to try some MP tonight :yes:

I hope you have a good wife, otherwise bad stuff happens when you let them buy games for you, ie being bought the 360 version when you only have a PS3 etc.

Had mine delivered to work. So it's sat here on my desc with my PS3 Controller. No PS3 though. Tried spinning the disc on the finger...
I'm also out tonight straight after work, off tomorrow but very busy and back at work on Thursday. BOOOOOOOOOOOO!
