Why was there no mention of zombies?! Not buying if no zombies!!!
Nah, looks alright, but I probably wouldn't buy it anyway. Play it at my friend's house. ^.^

Seriously though, I want zombies.

They did confirm from the get-go that Zombies will be returning. :)

Woodsey:
'Giving someone else the keys' is a pretty good analogy for what it's like to play a CoD campaign.

Otherwise: dodgy voice acting, crappy writing, rubbish textures.

I would have to agree on that point. I didn't buy MW2. I didn't even bother to download it. Through a weird set of circumstances it was given to me free of charge and since i thought the universe might be trying to tell me something i decided to grudgingly install in on my PC. The handholding didn't kill it for me, the stupid story didn't kill it for me, the dumb as fuck dialog didn't kill it for me.

All of these things didn't help. What did kill it for me was this;

This is the PC version of the game. $200 million worth of game and it looks like that. I know many games have low-res textures but i found many of the visual elements in MW2 offensive to the eye as well as being unacceptable resolution.

At least if you are going to make something flashy but rubbish at least actually make it flashy.

I like the section where they're riding horses, but beyond that, it all looks pretty much like Deus Ex/Perfect Dark meets COD.

It still doen't make me want to play it, but I can't wait for the LP's to start showing up.

God...goddammit.

I had told myself after being fucked over by MW3 that I wouldn't buy another CoD game until they changed things up. And now I see that Treyarch is actually changing things up. This sucks.

Guess I'm getting Black Ops 2. It looks...like an actual change of pace for once. Huh.

pre-ordered already. weird hearing me say "hello, i'd like to pre-order the black ops sequel"
...but im not judging it on black ops 1. im excited.

So, they are riping-off Rambo 3 now?

Rambo 3: movie set during the Cold War where the titular character guns his way through Soviet mooks in Afghanistan to rescue his Sarge.

Black Ops 2 game set in the future where the player character guns his way through highly-advanced weapons and robots controlled by terrorists.

???

Ugh,why do I even boder.GO rewatch the film.In it Stallone was being chased by a helicopter while riding a horse.

Are you seriously saying Blops 2 ripped off Rambo because of one scene? How the hell does this logic work?

Anyways, while this could lead to some interesting (yet slightly less confusing and murky) MGS4 themes, being a COS game, it will basically boil down to "all these advance weapons are dangerous to everyone, but only if they arent controlled by the American military, because America is a beacon of everything right in the world."

I'm seeing something along the lines of 'Baby's First Metal Gear Solid' but with absolutely no stealth. Can I add emphasis on 'Baby's?'

Captain Pirate:
If it wasn't COD, it would look amazing and I would be in the front seats for the hype train.

Yeah. Let's hate on it just because it's CoD. Despite the fact it looks pretty nice. /sarcasm

I like how everyone will most likely continue to rip on CoD for having no innovation, even though every game is always vastly different than the one before. I don't remember MW2 having survival mode, or MW2 having a zombie mode. Or MW1 having thermal scopes, heartbeat sensors. Or any other game besides Black Ops being set during the Cold War. This one seems to be taking us to the future, which is slightly refreshing and has potential to bring some interesting new stuff to the table.

OT: I really enjoyed the trailer. And the fact that Woods is alive, if that is him. It seems to me they improved the engine somewhat, or switched to a new one. In any case, I'll be on the look-out, it has big chances of being good.

Thankfully for Activision, I've grown to love MW3's multiplayer. So I'll probably buy this. Also somewhat, but not over the top futuristic--just what I wanted. Also, NAY NAY, Moooo! Let's have some barn yard fun, ya'll.

I've had a slight grudge against Treyarch ever since CoD 3 (and pretty much solely because of CoD 3), but I have to admit they do impress me a bit with every new game they come out with.

This looks pretty damn good. I'll be following it with interest.

A Call of Duty set in the future? I CALLED IT! I knew this would happen! Looks not bad, but that's what I said when I saw the first black ops trailer. Then again, it is the future, which is probably going to make it at least slightly more interesting. Especially with the whole "man vs. machine" thing. I'm going to remain indifferent for now, but I'm probably going to end up buying this game for the sole purpose of playing nazi zombies anyways.

10 killstreak = Stampede!

Personally, I've started to become more of a Treyarch fan than an Infinity Ward fan, especially since, aside from a couple of tweaks and a few new guns and perks, MW3's was just more of the same of MW2's Multiplayer, while Black-Ops felt entirely different and separate from WaW's.

Plus, I'm one of the few people that actually does enjoy the Campaign of the CoD games, specifically Treyarch's since they at least try to be a bit more than the same old cliche tripe (doesn't stop it from having its moments, but overall it's still nice). I liked how Reznov carried over from WaW to Blops, and if Blops's intel is to be believed, then maybe we'll see Mason, Hudson, and Weaver in this new installment.

Besides, this looks like a future where the Cold War never stopped escalating, and I've always been a bit of a fan of "What if...?" Cold War scenarios, so I'd like to see how this plays out.

Freezy_Breezy:
Reminds me a lot of BF2142... the future always looks the same in these games.

And horses? How does that work?

TECHNOLOGY IS EVIL
Incidentally, I get the feeling the horses are just gonna be reskins of the snowmobile section from that one call of duty game. Or rather, the call of duty game, for there is only one.
ot: Yawn. What more can I say about it? It's gonna get released, and because it has massive PR, people are gonna buy more COD than food, again, leaving good, actually innovative games to stagnate in moneyless depression...
Anyway, I just stopped caring about COD games. Release a game every year for the last 5 years and tell us it's TOTALLY DIFFERENT THIS TIME when in reality you're beating a dead horse so vigorously that it doesn't really even resemble a dead horse anymore, and I stop caring. Go ahead, release another mediocre game and make more money for it than most western nations combined. I'll be over here not giving a shit.

I haven't gotten a CoD game since I got CoD 4 used after MW2 was announced, and I wasn't really interested in its multiplayer anyway. I'm sorry to all the CoD hating Sheeple, but that trailer looks fucking awesome.

-snip-

You do know you don't need to quote such a long......quote.
On the subject:
Are there horses - check
Are there helicopters - well they are drones, but the still have guns, so check.
Is there a guy with a stupid haircut and a bowie knife - eh, it's a CoD game so probably.

I enjoyed reading the comments on one of the trailers on Youtube. Everyone wants CoD to change something, and when the changes are made, everyone's pissed and saying it doesn't look like CoD anymore.
Yes, because how dare they try to make something new and interesting when they can just make the same game all over again?

But seriously, this looks kind of interesting. I like the addition of science fiction elements, which I guess means I have to at least try it at some point.

THAT IS WHAT HAPENS WHEN YOU LET GEOHOT RELEASE THE PS3 ROOT KEY...BAD THINGS!

P.S. it looks like Call of Duty: Human Revolution.

Welcome to call of duty bland ops.

I'll probably get it since Black Ops was the most fun I had with a COD game and the lag was considerably less. Only reason I have MW3 still is my friends have it and its a way to keep in touch and have some fun.

If you actually read my post, you'd have seen that I elaborated on why I wasn't too excited for it.
I hardly call a survival mode an 'innovation', as a lot of games have them now, and a fair few had them before MW3. The same applies for a thermal scope and heartbeat sensor, the thermal scope is hardly anything groundbreaking, and heartbeat sensors are total copies of Alien's motion trackers.

And when MW3 literally had the exact same multiplayer scoreboards as the last iteration, and the animations and graphics looking identical to the last one two years ago, I find it hard to believe that much more effort has been put into the rest of the game.

Also, a setting can be as diverse and original as it wants, but if the game isn't hugely different from it's predecessors it won't feel new at all.

Yes, the future does have the potential to bring something new to the table, but I have a lot of doubts as to how genuinely new it will be.
There may be futuristic, unmanned helicopters as foes, horses to ride on, and new shiny guns, but from past experiences in playing Call Of Duty I think it'll just be shooting down the same helicopter-style enemies in the same way, and instead of riding horses it'll just be yet another on-rails section, and the guns will feel as light and boring as they usually do.

I'm not hating on CoD because it's CoD, I just don't have high hopes for the next entry in a game that's renowned for being the industry's biggest cash-cow and spitting out games on an annual basis with minimal differences between them.
You might think the different setting will make a better game, and that's fine, however I'm just not buying it.

Have you ever tried to write netcode before? That shit is HARD.

It's not hard if you took your engine from Call of Duty 4, which had none of that crap. How come most other popular shooters don't have these problems?
Oh and if you can't write code for a game properly, then you don't belong on the position of a game programmer anyway. There's three broken Call of Duty games already and nobody ever bothered fixing them. They just keep churning out crap that gets worse with every iteration...
...and then everybody buys it!
It's madness!
Edit: inb4 sparta

A game engine does not contain the net code, and net code has to be tailored to any specific game. Seriously, net code is probably the hardest software you can do outside of NASA or CERN. Seriously, do you have any programming experience?

I do have some experience in programming and, as far as I know, code is supposed to be written in a way to make it reusable. When it comes to netcode it's all about sending and receiving packets which contain certain types of data that the client needs to essentially "rebuild" the game state on the server in an efficient way(The way that doesn't require ginormous amounts of bandwidth), right?
Since game mechanics are practically unaltered from MW2, and thus CoD4, this packet sending and receiving should pretty much look the same in BO and MW3.
In this example net code doesn't even need to be tied to the game engine, since both Treyarch and whoever did MW3 essentially had the entire previous Call of Duty at its disposal. The point is that they still managed to cock it up.

After looking through many responses... We may be (with some third poster) the only persons here who actually noticed that.

Net code is also the stuff that interprets the incoming packets. Basically, it'd be like trying to use the C++ compiler in Java or Python.

I feel like they could change the entire engine or leave it exactly the same, in the end people are some people are gonna hate it no matter what they do. I have never been big on cod but this looks interesting. I do however find it funny that people will say graphics don't matter but when a new cod comes out it is one of the first things they complain about. Sure they are behind but personally I find them fine. Name A single last gen game that looks better (2005 and before). Perhaps visually I am pleased too easily, I have owned crysis since release and the graphics are great but it is still fun on medium.

But you still acknowledge the fact that, while it's not exactly 'innovation', it's still different than the previous installment. Meaning they're not all the same game every year. Meaning all the people who hate on CoD are wrong with that argument.

Besides, they did announce the new RTS mode. And the fact that we will make choices that affect the course of the story throughout the campaign. Not 'innovation', but it's different than the previous games, as always.

Well then yes, I suppose in that sense yeah they are different every year.
Like I said, they can add all sorts of new multiplayer modes and things, but with the engine being as old and familiar as it is it still feels like it's the same game I've been playing the past 4 years.
It's different, yes, but not enough to warrant me buying it.

Okay. I'll give it a rent. The single player of COD games are always fun the first time through, even if they don't give you very cohesive stories.

Horse killstreak or no buy.

I have to agree there. It is saddening to see people hate and unfairly review-bomb games that provide a genuinely entertaining and very different experience with each iteration. Does MW2 explain how CoD4's ending happened? Does BF3 end with you storming a criminal's casino in heavy armor and carrying heavy weapons with the sole objective of killing said criminal at any cost?

Call of Duty Black Ops 2 hacks and cheats are not online yet. In fact the game is in the speculation phase. But when it does come out be ready to rock the gaming world! Our Call of Duty Black Ops 2 cheat will be one of the first out and the aimbot as with our other cheats is nothing short of amazing! Other Call of Duty hacks released include Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare, Call of Duty 5 World at War and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. These cheats have amazing aimbots and features that will surely rank you up faster than most hacks.

A few Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 multiplayer details may have been leaked via a thread on Activision's forums, which was later taken down by the publisher. The game hasn't even officially been announced, so you should keep in mind that posts like this often show up for upcoming games, claiming details that are later proven false. But, until Activision comes along and tells us otherwise, it's fun to speculate, right?

Call of Duty: Black Ops is a first-person shooter video game developed by Treyarch, published by Activision and released worldwide on November 9, 2010 for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii consoles, with a separate version for Nintendo DS developed by n-Space. Announced on April 30, 2010, the game is the seventh installment of the Call of Duty series. It is also the first to be set in the Cold War and the fifth to be set in World War II. It is the third in the series to be developed by Treyarch, and is a sequel to the developer's Call of Duty: World at War.
