Not Fun

I'll just start off by saying that Black Ops as the BEST CAMPAIGN in all of CoD. I would individually give that a 9. Zombie mode is also a great addition to the game.

The multiplayer however, gets a 4/10
I had a few expectations for COD:BO multiplayer. Remove grenade launchers, Commando perk, and Knife Monkeys.

Note: I don't quickscope, camp, use noobtubes or Commando.

Black Ops fixed only one. The grenade launchers are now completely optional and requires the player to buy it. So there is a lot less noobtubes now.
The Commando perk is removed, but now it feels like everybody can now lunge 6 feet with a knife. I encountered several times were I was knife'd by someone sprinting past me without me ever being in their crosshairs.

But one of the worst parts about Black Ops has to be the terrible maps. Every single map consists of a long alleyway; a 2 story building; close quarters buildings; and tiny huts.
There is no possible way to properly snipe in any map. In fact, in the 6 hours I played of it, I never saw anyone use a sniper rifle.
The gameplay is now dominated by Sub-Machine Guns.

The whole "feel" of the game is just slow. I never felt the adrenaline rush feeling that I experienced in MW.

I personally am going back to MW2, maybe even MW1 after playing Black Ops. Why? Because its addictive and FUN.
Though MW2 has Commando, Noob Tubes, Boosters, and a bunch more BS, I still have a lot more fun there than in Black Ops.

I'm not a player of this genre usually but my son loves this series and I'm a history buff so decided to try it...IM HOOKED! Great series but this one shines over all the others...nice game flow and after a few games you'll get used to all the controller moves..aiming is still my downfall! But I actually have allot of fun playing this..ALLOT of hardcore players online but most are cool with you not being good (because they can level off me, lol) I highly recommend this game even if your not a 1st person shooter fan! Me and my son have a great time with this one on XBOX LIVE. ALSO< there are 3 great add-on packages of maps..ZOMBIES ARE A BONUS TO REGULAR PLAY!! It isnt the top selling XBOX 360 game of all-time for nothing!!
