Black Ops 2 is great. If you expected Battlefield 3 or something crazy different, you're just looking for a reason to hate. CoD has a great formula going, and when they hand Treyarch the wheel great things always come out.
Modern Warfare 3 was terrible, 2 was so-so, and CoD 4 was honestly one of the best and still is. Black ops 1 brought a refreshing throwback with actual dedi's, FoV support, but was also pretty rough on the PC.
Black Ops 2 is great, it's one of the most balanced CoD's we've had in a long time, hell I usually run around with just a pistol most of the time. The game really is more balanced than people say, it's all about finding your groove, for instance the PDW which people claim is OP, I can't use to save my life, but I can out-gun PDW users with my Tac-45. We've already got a patch BEFORE console users, it has great PC support, except for no REAL Dedis.
Single player is a blast, better than bro-dude-bro-russian-bro-brah 3. The decision making actually made me stop and think, and the ending I chose had me taken by surprise.
Tranzit zombies is great, I love the open world Zombies, it's fun, the characters make me laugh, lots of hidden things for us Hardcore Zed players.
I always have high hopes for 3Arch and haven't been disappointed, they're the better dev who at least tries to give us a quality game without re-hashing everything.

My mate just lent me his steam to play bo2 for a bit. Been playing it for around 5 hours in total. It's fairly fun to play, but i can't agree with you on the balance. That gun which people hipfire from, get 3 bullet kills and just run around with laser sight is obviously overpowered. I picked it up from someone and got 8 kills straight away - that shouldn't happen. The assult rifles seems weak, not sure if it's just the selection is was using. Again, only played a couple hours, so my view may change but there are many balancing issues which should be addressed. Not least the fact that if i get the first bullet into a guy, and continue to shoot him, he should die. Good support from treyarch so far which may improve things. WIll play it again in a bit.

I am experiencing issues with the latest Nvidia drivers (310.54) where the game crashes with SLI enbled. Disable SLI and I can play the game no problems. Interested to know if others have found the same problems.

I don't see that as a bad thing. I honestly haven't liked a CoD since 4, but I do enjoy watching people like IncredibleOrb (plays on PC) and others who are good at the game, play it, it's entertaining.

Finished the SP. I think the campaign is great, hell its atleast better than some of the games out there. I'm extra glad there was an option to conclude it by shooting Menendez instead of watching him walk. Hey its the first COD with choices & objectives.

Well at the end of the day, I believe no campaign level can match upto that of the Pripyat mission in MW1. Thats my favorite mission in all shooters, the second being Comrades from BF3 thumb.gif

Honestly, whoever was the brains behind that level should be honoured. That level was so well thought through, great concept and great execution.
