  • Most impressive voice acting ever on any shooter (IMHO at least)

Not here to bash the game, but I was curious on this one, and wondering if you've played Halo 4 yet and could compare, to me Halo 4 seems to be a mastery of all elements, and I'm only a recent re-converted Halo fan.

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!


Ye don't worry she bought the last COD for me as well because I was working so I trust her with that :)

If didn't have something really important at work today I would just take a day off, that's how excited I am about the game (ye I can just not come to work from time to time, perks of being management :))

holy crap. I already beat campaign on legendary. This was by far the easiest fps I ever played. On a positive note the npc soldiers have better aim so it makes it easier to fly through this game.

Both are extremely polished games, but Halo was always been more story and dialogue driven than COD, so BO II voice acting surprised me a lot, 0 lame jokes from funny voiced characters like in BF:BC, just strong performances with a lot of dramatization quality. Above all Michael Rooker and Sam Worthington make a wonderful job. Now that you mention it may be in at the same level than Halo 4.

I LOVE the new Zombies stuff. Really fun and well done. But PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD USE A NEW ENGINE next year. Holy cow does it look like ass these days compared to say, BF3 or even UE3 engine based games. I mean, they made some nice passes on the lighting engine obviously and some of the textures don't actually look like 1999 textures anymore, but the engine is horribly showing it's age now. Yeah yeah, not the Quake 3 engine blah blah. It's old. Period. Maybe Activision should shell out some dough and buy a license to the Frostbite 2 engine :D

Also, I think it's amazing it took up until BLOPS 2 to get actual working 360 gamepad icons in the PC version. Seriously? Not to mention, gamepad support in general (though I think MW3 and Blops 1 had it as well, but it was half assed) that doesn't suck.

If anyone is playing the PC version and wants to do some Zombie goodness, hit me up on Steam my nick is LOC (or LOCofBorg because CoD games has to have more than 4 letters in a name or you get kicked from MP games, hello 1998!).

Played the first mission of the campaign and am pretty close to finishing the second mission.
Say what you will about the CoD franchise, but the truth is they know how to make a good entertaining SP campaign, there is no doubt about that.
So much so, I just traded in Halo 04 to Amazon while I could still get $32 credit for it, as that is only going to get lower.
Despite Halo 4 being incredibly polished and well put together, the SP campaign literally bored me to death.
I already find the SP campaign of CoD to be much better, and as I indicated, I am not even that far along with it.
And unlike Halo 4, I will check out the MP aspects of CoD for sure, in particular Spec Ops and especially Zombies. Really looking forward to checking it out.

So yeah, despite being Activision's cash cow game, it is still a well made game IMO, and one very much gets their moneys worth as far as the options they have beyond the SP.

What I don't like about COD is how the character moves. I explain:

On Battlefield when I move my character with the keyboard and mouse, it feels fast and responsive. On COD is not like that. Its slower and different. It gets to me.

Er, nope? I play quite a few game (genres) on PC with a gamepad, it's just more comfortable for me that way. Don't get me wrong, FPSs usually aren't one of them though. Borderlands 2 and Blops 2 however, I find myself way more in the zone with a gamepad. I guess because BL2 is a slower type of game, and while Blops is certainly not slower, I just like the gamepad with it more, for some odd reason I guess :D

Also, zombies.
