I'm probably going to trade in Black Ops today for Gran Turismo 5.
Only 1 of my close friends is playing it. And that's the major reason I buy games, to play multiplayer with buddies.
I like some parts of the game, but I think they got a lot wrong with it.
I think the weapons have a weird feel to em. There's times where I swear I hit someone center mass for a good 2-3 bursts and I'm the one that gets dropped first. The spawn points are HORRIBLE. I swear I'll run thru an area clearing everything to the side of me as I move, only to get hit from behind a couple of seconds later. They'll spawn ppl behind you away from the majority of their team mates.
I actually do fairly well in it, I just don't really dig it.
My weapon setups are basically an M14 setup with red dot, M16 setup (mid range maps). Sub Machine AK setup for closer maps and FFA (with fast reload), Anti Air with Large machine gun and anti air secondary, and sniper.
Almost all my setups run Ghost and Marathon. I've gone thru each special equipment option and I keep going back to the gas grenade. You'd be surprised how helpful it is. It'll slow an opponent down to where you can either smother him and kill him, or even have enough time to double back behind em for the surprise backstab.
The motion detector is good for a sniping setup. I'm a huge anti-camping fan... but I did a LOT of run and gun sniping in MW2. THe motion detector works when I set up shop in a room and watch a street in 15-20 second intervals. Then I'll pick it up and move on over. Only problem is I think they overdid the level design. It's annoying. The PC version guys are complaining out the ass because it's so damn linear. Clearly designed for console gaming with a joystick.
PLus they screwed up on the PS3. THe frame rate is pretty bad on the PS3 version, the party system is jacked up ONCE AGAIN.
That pisses me off more than anything. The list of games that get the party system right is so limited that it makes me want to not buy games for it anymore. Anyways. Enough ranting. Gran Turismo starts today....
