Black Ops II

Surprised nobody has made a thread about this game yet. Just bought it myself. After having to suffer through Halo 4 multiplayer the past week I can't tell you how relieved I am to be playing this. I'll probably still always prefer the Battlefield series, but this game is pretty fun so far. Played about 8 matches and I LOVE the new Pick 10 system. Haven't really had a chance to unlock a whole lot of things yet but I can imagine the variety of gameplay with this system.

So far the maps seem really well designed. Don't really have a feel for them yet so I'm not sure if I'll like them as much as the first Black Ops or not. But the maps I've played have been really nice.

Bought mw3 (well, the wife did) and wasn't impressed. Turned to battlefield 3 and thoroughly enjoy it. I have heard black ops ii is leaps and bounds better that mw3.

This lag compensation/hit detection issue is all over the forums and guys I play with seem to be having the same issue. It comes and goes for me but sometimes it feels like I put six bullets in a guy's chest and he then one shots me. There was not this playability issue in MW3.

The game reps are saying it's not an issue.

Disagree, that and the spawn points were my biggest complaints with MW3.

However, I'll be getting BOII later today, I'll chime in once I've had a chance to play it some.

It seems way worse in BLOPS2.

Report back when you get it!

I haven't really noticed lag that much. Some matches it is noticeable though...which is why I wish they would go to dedicated servers. For the most part though it's no worse or better than the first Black Ops.

It's funny that I haven't gotten this.

I guess I am just sick of how much of a money pit that online gaming has become. Seriously, you pay $400 on a game console, $60 for xbox live, $50 for an Internet connection, then $60 for the game. The after you pay all that money for everything, they require you pay an additional $15 per map pack, or another $50 to become elite!

I am just scared to find out what this will cost in 10 years when my kids start playing.

...it just pisses me off.

what's wrong with Halo 4? I was already thinking that I would only play story mode on it once I get it, and do online play with PS3, but it was just a money saving thing.

Nothing is wrong with Halo 4, if you like Halo multiplayer. I'm just not into it. I tried to get into it for about a week before BLOPS II came out, just didn't do anything for me.

Servers are horrible, but the game is good. The lag that you get stuck playing in really makes this game hard to play sometimes. You gotta love that you have to play on a worse connection then what you pay for, thanks Lag Ops

I think it is leaps and bounds better than MW3. The game does lag occasionally, but the pick 10 system is legit and the maps are pretty decent for the most part. I am near level 53 and I just don't understand the complaints regarding the spawn system. Sometimes they mess up, but I think that is more of an exception than a trend. I remember in MW3 I would spawn in front of people nearly every match which caused me to sell it back after a couple of weeks.

Just my two cents. I would recommend buying it.
