It honestly looks p**s poor! The graphics dont seem to offer any type of improvment from previous version. I honestly think MW2 graphics are by far better than the ones shown in the videos here and that was however many years ago
The maps look like the same old s**t from mw2, blops, mw3 and now this!
Ive never really slagged off the cod series as i loved cod uo on the pc and had many of good years in a rifle only clan, enjoyed cod4 and then mw2 until it got hacked... Im saying this as a ex cod fan who keeps looking for a new cod game that will make me think 'f**k yeah, thats what im talking about'.. it just looks shite!
After playing BF3 I can easily see the difference between the 2, COD seems like a fun shooter sticking to its roots, litterally just sticking to its roots but BF3 is so much diverse and immersive and has been out for a good few months now... I cant believe that BLOPs2 devs having looked at the compertition and thought lets up our game and do this or that but they havent!
just read that back... how much of an BF3 fan boy do i sound
im not, i just cant pretend that im not p**sed off at the lack of development in the cod franchise anymore
In all honesty, you can't be serious. Pulling up the gameplay from Mw2, Black Ops, and Mw3 and putting the vids side by side with gameplay from this (Not submitted by a user with an iPhone camera, from the actual CoD YT Channel) obviously shows that there's not one part of any of those games that have better graphics than Black Ops 2. Sure, it's no major improvement in graphics but it's an improvement in them nonetheless. Only 2 of the maps look familiar to me(From BO and MW3); and this is excluding Nuketown 2025 since that's an intended re-skin. How much different do they have to make every single map from every other single map they've created up to this point to please everyone who looks into this game? It's impossible, and even more so considering the settings the maps are in (This isn't Halo or EvE where you can fight on different planets).
--And to say that CoD haven't up'd their game or made any innovative changes to the series means that you haven't even bothered looking into the games features past this one article. They made a co-op story
mode for Zombies + 4 vs 4 vs zombies under Multiplayer Engine, they removed Kill-Streak reward system and added Score Streak + active/autonomous killstreak(s), they made it so Story Mode can have multiple endings and you can control things other than your character in the story mode at the same time, Create a Class system switched to a Pick 10
system to allow for more customization, new multiplayer modes added (Only one I can remember is the team-mode 3v3v3v3 / 4v4v4 one), weapon prestige'ing added, etc; the rest can be looked up on their channel or site. Once it comes out, I'm positive that people who own Bf3 and BO2 will agree it topped Bf3 (Which was supposed to be Mw3's job but it was too crappy to even beat Black Ops) until Bf4 comes out that is.
Point is, what you said could've been used against MW3 but BO2 has finally actually 'changed' the CoD series.
