Still worth getting this?

Got bored of mw3 and was thinking of picking this up. Is this community active?

Active enough, 30k players online and no hacks thus far. I don't have trouble finding a match at least.

Black Ops has a very high population, more so than Halo Reach or Battlefield 3, so you are bound to find a match in almost any playlist.

Its worth getting for the other modes too. the Zombies is here, Campaign is rock solid for a Call of Duty game, and there is things like Dead ops that was put in just for fun. Its much more likely to play like the next CoD game as well so it makes for fun practice

Yes. There are still tons of people online, and more people "come back" from MW3 each day.

This is the second most active game, by unique user, on xbox live right now.

Definitely still worth getting.

30k..? You're f-ing with me. There's always 160k on at least.

The cowards speak from pedestals with words like ''courage'' and ''resolve'', but what they meant was "**** them all, because freedom isnt free."

BO will surely be very active for a couple years to come if the previous CoD's are any indication. IMO, it's the best of the franchise to date. Great design philosophy, closest to balance of the franchise, great maps in general, and the most important is that it's streamlined to be fun and not an endless grind like MW3.

In the US perhaps, I play in the PAL time zone (as in when it is late night/early morning in the US) and then it is always around 30-40k online.

Was about to make a topic asking the same thing.. Good thing I checked first. I never bothered with black ops before but MW3 was a disappointment.. 10th prestige and all already so I got my moneys worth figured I'd try this one.
