Considering I haven't paid for a copy of COD since MW2(Blops1 was a gift), and I'm playing my roommates copy of Blops2, I'm pretty sure I'll have no problem in being cautious buying any COD game.
I really miss MW2. :( And BF:Bad Company 2...
Man, what the hell happened to our military shooters, I thought they were supposed to get better, not... whatever the hell BLOPs2/MW3/Battlefield 3 turned into :\ --- XBL: rune yedi WII:7327 0713 1219 5379 PS3: yedi yedi.deviantart.com
I actually think BO2 is one of the best CODs so far. Gunplay is in focus, every match isn't littered in scorestreaks and the 10 point system is genius. Turn the LC down to MW2 levels, and you got a winner
I have no idea what LC stands for, but I agree with this.
The only thing I have against this installment is the iffy connection issues, but that only seems to be a problem at a certain time of day (daylight hours in the UK).
But to answer the original question: yes, I will be cautious, I will be renting. I was supposed to rent this before getting it, but the missus surprised me. :/ --- "I'M HERE TO SAVE YOU! Right after I get done rubbing my arse against this wall." - Arctic_Sunrise
Im waiting for the next good multiplayer game. COD has officially diluted itself into just nonsense. Awful uninspired maps. Instakills. Whatever slight bit of skill it used to take to win is now gone. They narrowed the talent gap but made the game unplayable by doing so. MW2 was the beginning of the end. Killstreaks have just gotten worse from that point. Maps have just gotten worse. Gunplay has just gotten worse.
The game is very contrived now. I have only 5 hours into this edition and I already dont want to play anymore. By far the quickest I have quit a COD.
Now im just waiting for the next good online game that it as smooth as COD with as good of controls.
