One of the worst games created since ball in a cup

Let me get the good points out of the way first:
Story mode is ok, challenging, a little different and has a surprise twist to it. But that just about does it. Its nothing we haven't seen with Call Of Duty before, run gun and shoot em up. There are a few new twists, like the explosive crossbow and zip lines, but nothing to get excited about. Too much filler time between missions as well.
Zombies is in a way, an improvement from WaW zombies. Bigger move involved maps, smoother graphics. Zombies however, is much harder and the weapon selection and upgrades aren't nearly as good as zombies from WaW. Too much wacked out crap going on like having to run and link the teleporter then run back to teleport and THEN pack-a-punch. Zombie crawlers that explode, the "Five" map is just too hard and spastic, to the point where it is nearly unplayable. Ascension is decent and if you're a hardcore fan of zombies, I'd suggest spending the $15 to get it, it will provide many hours of enjoyment. New perks, easter eggs, a lot of great stuff going on, but on the same hand, even Ascension is getting to the point of being ridiculously aimless and crazy.
Combat training sucks. Horrible. The bots are absolutely stupid on the lowest 2 settings so you have to bump them up to hardened to get anything out of it (and then its still kind of stupid) can't even play on veteran, the bots all run with snipers and auto head shots, just unplayble. Unfun, doesn't simulate real game play, won't make you better, just make you angry.
Now for the online (since thats mainly what COD is about). If you want good online, DON'T buy this sorry piece of crap. Buy Homefront, buy Medal of Honor, go back to Modern Warfare, hell go buy Monopoly and play that. Laggy, sorry host migration, can't keep parties together, sometimes you find lobbies quick, sometimes it takes up to 10 minutes. All the cheaters, hackers, glitchers, and exploiters have made the transition on to this game. Aimbots, rapid fire controllers, wall hacks, everything. I played 10 matches today and couldn't find 1 without a cheater. The weapons suck, you are forced to run around with the AK74u with rapid fire or else you will get owned. The Famas has yet to be patched, 1 or 2 shots and it kills you and it has an incredible fire rate. Pretty much, run with a 203 or rapid fire because you won't stand a chance in a head to head fight. The weapon's damages are too screwed up to make it fair. Hit detection....wait, theres hit detection? Forget ADS, it doesn't matter the bullet will go where it wants to. I hoped the First Strike map pack would give something new but they don't just more horribly designed maps that are frustrating. No fix on the spawning issues yet and everyone still runs hardline, gets 2 kills and you have RC XDs live and in effect blowing up everyone. MW2 went down the drain, but at least it had a solid server, smooth game play, and some fun stuff going on in it. Everything about Black Ops sucks, perks, weapons, maps, spawning, EVERYTHING. I suggest go to Vegas with about $15,000 and hit the tables, because thats all this game is, a gamble. No skill, just randomly picking and choosing who is going to die next. You may go 20 and 1 then go 2 and 30. One day the Commando is awesome, the next day you have to run extended mags and MAYBE 45 bullets will kill someone. It sucks, WaW was the last great COD IMO and I will never waste money on another piece of crap Treyarch makes. They should be ashamed of this game and hold their heads as low as possible. If you are looking for online, AVOID at all costs! And the problems are on Xbox as well, not as bad, but still there so don't start PS3 bashing. Its just one of the worst video games in history.
