cartoonish compared to Halo 4?!?! bwahahahahahahha.... gasp.... bwaaaahahahah... Halo 4 is the most cartoon like out of all modern shooters. You are clearly talking out of your ass.


I have got the game installed, but haven't found time to fire it up, but Halo 4' graphics do look impressive. Not cartoonish. At least to me, they are not

I've been playing FPS games on PC for about 14 years now. I have to admit, I've started moving over to console for my FPS fix due to cheaters.
It's so easy to cheat on PC, anyone can do it. Sure there are cheats and hacks on Consoles but there are very few and they don't last very long at all.
3 or 4 years ago I said I'd never play an FPS game on a console. Now I buy pretty much all my games on PS3.
The worst part about it is leaving my friends behind who still refuse to move from PC to Console.

I think hackers will be the death of PC gaming, not piracy.


I have yet to see any hackers on the pc version. Heck, I play a lot of pc fps games and never run into hackers, they aren't nearly as common as you are making them out to be.

you'd think that with the millions upon millions that treyarch is raking in, that they could afford some dedicated servers for consoles. it's extremely irritating when the host decides to turn off his system because his K/D ratio was less than perfect, and ruins the game for the others.

i'm enjoying the game otherwise but the hosting issue has always plagued these games.

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


DL nailed it

You have to understand, everyone says hackers are rampant because they don't want to admit they suck and thats why they keep dying lol.

That's not what I meant by cartoonish. I'm talking about the look and feel. Halo is pretty solid in that respect. Black ops 2, not so much. Very impressive.

You honestly think Activision would let them spend money of that? :p

just finished singleplayer and it was excellent..

The characters, the story are so well crafted. Still not amazing amazing but this is probably one of the better ones I played in action games. You can definitely see the touch of David S Goyer. I like a lot where they are going with this.

My ending wasn't so happy. It was very dark.

livin in a box - was about to say the same thing, a year or two ago this thread would have been fifty pages by now. just look at the BF3 thread. this has nothing to do with BLOPS2, though, it's all us as the neowin community :(

and I totally agree with Viper - finally went back to full on FPS MP on PC, and it's great to be back. Where are all these rabid cheaters and hackers? I ran into maybe a couple in a few days of BLOPS2, and even those are big maybe's. this game looks great on PC, super detailed and crisp. if it's an engine from 2006, it sure don't look like it. besides, MOH Warfighter has Frostbite 2, and how many people play that online?

I can't express how much I enjoy the MP here, it's so rich and detailed and the maps are excellent. proper spawning, large arenas, good balance between crazy action and tactics. I love it. this is the best COD since MW for sure, maybe the best ever, time will tell. definitely getting the season pass for it!

So I had no idea the game supported 3D on the 360 until I saw this LG commercial touting the fact the other night.
I decided to check it out, and it is easily the best 3D of gaming this generation of consoles.
I had to play with some of the depth settings on my TV itself to get rid of some ghosting, but once I did, the 3D in SP was pretty damn amazing actually. As I said, easily the best game of this generation, and that all boils down to the fact they insist on keeping 60 FPS without 3D.

My brother had told me when he played in 3D its really only the UI and (IIRC) the gun? So is it well done or just "the best" because all other games' attempts (Crysis 2) suck at it this generation (yes I understand because of the technical limitations). Just curious :)

Was trying to decide whether to get this today or Halo 4 and I got Halo 4. Liking it so far but definitely wanted to get this too, just spent all the money on other things. :) Guess I can get it during the Christmas time where it will be cheaper too.

Based on what I saw though plus stuff from friends it's looking sweet as well. I don't think Halo is bad per say, just different group of people enjoy either choice and I happen to like both, more fun for me then.

I might end up getting it this weekend though as I am still drooling over this game too, still wanna finish the last one on veteran now!
