    i’ve gone the other way after watching the full MP reveal yesterday at gamescom (i’ll try to find it in a postable format) i want this game now, they’ve made it so you HAVE to work as a team, if you don’t you’re going to get battered, which is a good thing, to get higher scorestreaks, you have to use lower score streaks to help you. they broke it down like this
    if you go for kills the highest scorestreak will take 29 kills
    if you play the objective and work as a team you’ll get it a lot sooner (around 6 kills)
    you do it by capping flags, being active near the objective, helping teammates, using equipment, using things to help your team (UAV’s etc) and everything adds to your scorestreak, kills are the least profitable way to get anywhere in the game.

    on top of that they’ve brought in league play and ‘Codcasting’ which allows players to be put in a bracket with other teams and play against other teams of their level, so going off BF3 if we had a few members in BO2 we’d be in a mid to high level bracket, meaning we’d be playing against other mid to high level teams and the games would be a challenge, unlike BF3 when we get in a lot of noobs end up on the other team and we end up destroying them and its not really that fun for anyone, i mean i like destroying a bunch of level 20’s but theres no challenge, so i have to set myself a challenge in those matches like go positive or get x amount of kills etc, they’re taking that mentality and getting rid of it by making you play at your best everytime you play so you’re always playing people of the same skill or slightly better.

    Codcasting allows you to showcase your skills LIVE, you stream from the xbox or ps3 to Twitch and people can watch it while its happening, this is how MLG works, you play and people are watching, and theres a guy who is calling the match like a commentator, they’re allowing everyone a chance at doing it straight out of the box.

    they’ve also made the clan thing a lot bigger, you can choose your clans faction and play as them all the time if you so wish, so you can be the rebels, Seals, FBI etc, and thats your faction.

    after seeing that, it looks really good and it looks like its a step in the right direction to me, as opposed to MW3 being all kill based and noob based.
    i’m really looking forward to it, i preordered it today and it looks like it’ll be a game that i’m going to enjoy playing, if i don’t like the MP i’ll end up on zombies like i did in black ops 1, and survival in MW3. but it does look pretty damn good to me.

    THANK YOU SPARX! Haha, this is one of the reason’s I’ve been getting across. Treyarch ARE NOT the bad developers. Infinity Ward are. Since the first COD was launched on the current-gen consoles (COD4: Modern Warfare on X360 and PS3), Treyarch have not done nothing the same apart from the concept: A First Person Shooter game. They done WW2, Vietnam, and now the future. Infinity Ward are the ones who have given the COD franchise a bad name, by repeating the same old crap, copying and pasting it and making money.

    Anyway, at gamescom Treyarch shown that they have made it more of a team game now instead of a solo game. I think it might be a scaled-down version of MAG, set in the same year and shares some of the same characteristics.

    As for Quickscoping, they have brought it back to an extent. They have got the animation of QSing in it but have made it a lot harder to do QS.

    the joys of being at uni haha, Q4 spending is 2 PS vitas, a few games for each, 2 copies of black ops, and still have enough to put a deposit on a versarce graduation suit.

    Unfortunately, i am now looking forward to this game solely based on this trailer:

    http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/08/14/black-ops-2-multiplayer-video-preview

    It does seem like a game that at least for multiplayer will be good. Not to mention they are trying to get away from MODERN stereotypes.  It is almost like the craziness of starhawk and the engine of a first person shooter. I really don’t care about story, but this might be the first COD I own, just cause of the interesting aspect of the multiplayer.

    thats what i was thinking as well Agent, prior to the trailers and reveals, i wasn’t interested, now i’m very interested in how they’ll do it, its looking good. i’m liking how they took a leaf out of BF’s book and allowed people to take scopes off the sniper rifles. plus you’ll be happy Agent, you can play with just a knife if you wish

    The thing is that Cod in general is what I would call a SEMI- tactical FPS ARCADE Game its not supposed to be realistic nor should it because it caters to different people than BF3. BF3 is realistic, tactical, Fun, and fast paced explosive action! for a more serious player. and to a less serious player who is either younger,or doesnt understand know how to win as a team, but im a fan of both! since somedays i like apples and others i like oranges. its really personal choice on this matter.  i’ll play any game once and im planning on getting it for zombies but im going to try out multiplayer and campaign.

    Frank, i’m hopefully getting the prestige edition, not passing up a remote control quadrotor, got a bet on with my little sister in law that she can’t get my missus to prestige 3 before i get 2 weapons to gold, she was at 53, i’m at 30 with the UMP then working on the PP90M1. think i’ve got it in the bag, if by some miracle she pulls it off though, she gets a copy of black ops and xbox live for a year, so i’m actually trying to win this one lmao

    20k xp off a gold UMP, then on with the next one, she’s level 55 now, so she’s still got 25 levels to go, i’m well ahead with it. think i’m 50 kills off 10k added to my weapon xp so should be gold in about 10 matches.

    Dude, i wonder if i could actually play without using a gun, just use a knife and other equipment. THAT WOULD BE SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!

    ive done it before on the ones that are out, its difficult, but with black ops 2 you can not use a gun, run a knife and use wildcards to get 6 perks instead of 3 which will make it easier. so you could run knife and tomahawk (throwing knife), with 6 perks. now for me, i rarely use a secondary, so i’d prefer to not have a secondary, put 2 attatchments on my primary, and run 3/4 perks, and equipment.

    OMFG I saw that trailer 2 days ago, it looks freakin’ epic!  Can’t wait till the 26th! I think you can see the outline of Richtofen as the driver of the bus at the beginning, you can see the shape of his hat.

    Same! Along with the video, a lot of info was released. There IS a Zombie campaign called ‘Tranzit’, the classic ‘Survival’ and a 4z4 ‘Grief’ – where it is humans vs humans vs zombies. Looks great, there’s some other rules in there as well. Also, in Private Match, there is ‘Custom Zombies’ which allows the players to change rules, such as the round they start on, headshots only mode, and can even get rid of ‘special’ items (Pack-A-Punch, Perks etc.).

    The map looks huge, and it appears that each stage of it gets increasingly harder, and you can travel on the bus and you can get on top of it! The old characters (Richtofen, Dempsey, Nikolai, Takeo) aren’t in it (well, ,this map) which is the only downer so far, but it still looks epic!

    to be honest zombies is the main reason for me buying the game but the multiplayer looks good as well, i know for alot mw3 was a BIG disapointment but the pick 10 create a class looks like it could be a good balance cause you have more controll of your role you want to play.
