I have played quite a few of the COD games, and have usually always been pleased. The first Black Ops game started to change my mind a bit. This one cemented my languishing opinion of the series. Usually I can brush first impressions aside because at least one aspect is good if one is bad, but that was not the case here. Story line is fragmented and uninteresting. Character movement and shooting are unrealistic and over-accelerated. Graphics were good when they worked, but almost every mission looked like it lacked rendering and was dark green - I assume this might be an update I'm missing though. However, even if the graphics issues can be explained, that doesn't make up for the fact that this game was nothing new in the inflated realm of shooters. Perhaps it's because I just got done playing Far Cry 3; that might explain why I thought this game sucked - FC3 was a far superior shooter.
