I'm rapidly losing interest in these rank-fest multiplayer 1st person war shooters. Black-ops/medal of honour/modern warefare... all the bloody same to me.

WAW was glitchy at first i agree but then so was MW2, made even worse by the amount of kids hacking the game themselves. Remember the super speed glitch that was passed console to console.

Of course DLC will be flogged, Activision will make sure of that. At least they will come with new Zombie maps as well as MP maps.

I reckon this will be one of the best COD's yet.

I wasnt going to pre order this game as I know I will get bored of the multiplayer after a month or so and will clear the campaign on the first day or two of owning it, but as a result of being caught up in the hype, the fact the price takes an age to drop and me releasing Ive got release day off work Ive pre ordered it and Im actually quite looking forward to it. The campaign never disapoints in providing a very satisfying cinematic experience and I can just sell it on once Im done with the multiplayer. I honestly dont understand how people can play this game as much as they do all year long until the next one without getting bored of it.

An hour or so into the campaign now and must say it doesn't disappoint. :D I like the way it isn't in one specific conflict and you go through differnt missions from your past.Nice the way you have to try and assassinate Fidel Castro and then you go and meet JFK at the pentagon.Just blew up a Russian Rocket that was taking off.Graphics are great to. :D

So you play COD and Halo then dismiss the whole genre? You should try a few different franchises...or not

I like the look of the Dead OPS mode. Activision have taken the leaked videos down now though.

Its basically a spin off of the zombie mode but in a top down, twin stick stylee.

Looks like they are packing quite a bit of content in!

I really enjoy nuking people though. Ranks are boring anyway, we all know its about K/D spread.
