Not particularly, you're clearly expecting way more than you're going to get.

You got pretty high standards. Works both ways mate.

Not really, it's still the ID tech 4 engine. But I must admit they are making a good job to keeping it alive

Actually it's ID tech 3 based, which is even more insane if you think about it.

I actually find it quite strange how this thread isn't bustling with people playing it together and whatnot. Usually, this thread is hundreds of pages long, but now it's a bit like it's not even released!

Are there any sales figures out yet for BOII? I can't help but think that this has maybe gone down sales wise by quite a bit compared to Modern Warfare 3, I haven't seen a lot of people talking about it like I have the other Call of Duty's :/

I can't even play the game right now. There's a problem of some sort where certain ISP's can get online. I can't connect to BOP2 online services right now. Haven't been able to all day, there's a support thread going on the activision forums right now there are lots of people having the same problem.

I am curious have they ever went back to using dedicated multiplayer servers? I haven't bought any of the CoD games for a couple of years because of the lack of dedicated servers but I might be into getting this one if there's dedicated, I searched but the info I got back said they were both dedicated and player hosted so I'm not really sure what the answer is lol

This game is garbage. Graphics looks cartoonish when compared to Modern warfare or even Halo 4. Sounds are terrible. Even the gameplay (player movements) seems unrealistic. I sold it a day after I bought it.

No dedicated servers. My third game in I was 15-1 and the noob game host decides to rage quit, ending the session.

The difference is Halo is a sci-fi shooter. Yet despite this, it still beats out Blacks ops (both 1 and 2) graphically. I cannot believe anyone can be impressed with it. The gameplay animations are just as bad. I didn't even bother to play the single player this year because of the lack of improvement. Halo, it appears, has a is far superior engine behind it.

The Modern Warfare series is also more impressive than Black ops series. Had MW3 been a Treyarch game, came out after Black ops 2 and been called Black ops 3, I would have thought it been a huge step up.

What are you talking about?, Halo 4 isn't cartoon like at all.

None of these shooters have "cartoony" art direction.

The little midget things running around making funny noises? Guys in super space suits? The brighter color palette. Those elements are absolutely cartoon like.
