It was dissapointing to find that there are even more campers than MW2. Other than that though, its pretty balanced.
In regards to campers...I always feel that you can't blame the game for what the players are choosing to do. You can't program a player...only a game.
There was ever barely a bit of weapon balance and map design in that game.True, but it's a matter of how much the game will allow players to camp. MW2's weapon balance and map design encouraged it, to the point of giving players who wanted a more traditional run and gun experience a disadvantage. Thermal scope, heartbeat sensor, one man army? Combine camp-encouraging items with map design that routinely has perfect little dead ends that are easily defendable, and you have a game that wants camping to be the primary way of playing.
I have been playing black ops and I must say I very much prefer it to MW2. Running and gunning is now much more possible than in MW2 but they have not crippled a players ability to camp and set up a defensive perimeter. I really find it hard to explain how but it just simply is a lot more enjoyable to me. To be fair however the sniper rifles are too weak and this is coming from someone who HATES sniping. However as a fair warning I figured I should put that out there.
I still own Call of Duty and Call of Duty 2 on my PC and I love those games better than any of new onesUgh, idiots took over that series. Now it's just about the multiplayer. Most of my friends haven't started the campaign yet, even!
Who here has played the original games (before Modern Warfare)? Those were the greatest for their time. The Point-du-Hoc mission felt like I was playing the opening scene to Saving Private Ryan.
I remember when I was playing COD and I had like no health and I was trying to escape the dam. Man that was a bitch but boy did I have a nice sense of accomplishment when I did it
Yeah I'm not to big of a fan for regen health but meh there isn't much we can do about it.That kind of moment was great in the old COD, especially the dam mission. It annoys me now, that in the COD series, your health regenerates. There's no more panic or tension or desperation in the game at all anymore. :c
I really liked Big Red One and how the characters aged as the battles went on. Too bad most of them died. :c
