Have to admit I wasn't always the biggest fan of COD online, but this one has got my attention!

^^^^^

Well said that poster :D

totally agree, they are not needed and this game which IMO is far superior.

Hats off to the IW team for laying th foundations, but the torch has been successfully passed. Unfortunately, even if the Ex IW teams game is epic, it will fail because I think they are signed to Evil EA who cant do online play or servers for the life of them.

lol If you think EA are evil, what the f**k are Activision :shock:

It does seem Activision learned some lessons over the whole IW and MW2 fiasco, Treyarch have been given a little more freedom.

Black Ops is amazing, definitely my favourite campaign since the original Call of Duty. The online multiplayer is brilliant and Gun Game s seriously one of the best online modes to be integrated with the game. Hats off to Treyarch for making a brilliant addition to the series.

Thanks CVG for the limited edition Fable 3 and the limited edition Fable 3 Controller

Well deserved. I bought PC version and as pretty as it looks it still is too mind numbing with mouse and keyboard so I went out and got the ps3 version (which I can't tell apart from my brothers 360 version on/offline) so don't start with that crap. I'm not hugely into online shooters but I put 5 hours into black ops so far. I always did prefer Treyarch to IW.

I love this game, it fixes nearly everything I didn't like about MW2. The reason why people played like noob tube douch bags in MW2 is because Infinity ward made MW2 a game that rewards that type of BS behaviour. I don't see anyone doing the same crap in Black Ops as they did in MW2. I've been hit with a noob tube twice in 15 hours.

I take my hat off to Treyarch, they took a very frustrating unbalanced MW2 , kicked it in the nuts and released a great sequel. I don't really see how people can hate COD after this, if so they just hate good games.
