Call of Duty: Black Ops: Are You Experiencing Problems?

By Updated on

Now that millions of people have rushed out to buy Call of Duty: Black Ops we thought we would get some user feedback to see if there were any problems with the release.

I managed to get hold of a copy last night and played it for two hours, the only major problem I experienced occurred the first time I ran the game, just after I set up the screen brightness, audio properties and agreed that I wanted to see mature content, I selected “Multiplayer” nothing happened on my Xbox 360 the game just seemed to freeze, I tried pressing B to go back, however nothing happened, all I could do was call up the guide, return to the dashboard and reload the game, after doing all of this it worked fine next time around.

I have not yet played through the campaign, in fact all I did was played online multiplayer matches, I found it a little hard getting into games with five friends who were in a party with me, however one of these friends has a strict NAT, which is probably the reason for the problem.

We would love to hear whether you have experienced any problems so far with Black Ops, a quick check on Google Updates doesn’t show any obvious problems being reported on Twitter, therefore it seems as if most people are happy so far.

Are you experiencing any problems with Call of Duty: Black Ops?

    Black Ops crashes on my PC.  The longest session that I have had is under 4 minutes.  I have waited patiently for a patch, but have yet to see Treyarch show any interest in PC users. They are certainly on my black list of publishers to avoid.

    My computer is an i7 with 6gig RAM. (If the game will not run on an i7, it won’t run on any PC). I want to exchange my PC copy of Black Ops, for a Wii version, but Treyarch will not respond to any emails.  I am not an activist normally, but mainly due to Treyarch’s attitude, I now make every effort to discourage use of any product with their name on it.

    I will buy the next version of COD MW, as long as it is by Infinity Ward, and not treyarch.(small T intended).

  • muddawgmom

    For some reason every time the HANOI map comes up my PS3 locks up and won’t finish loading. I have to pull the plug. Disk is excellent and scratch free. I used to not have problems with the map before but recently it’s the only game that seems so give me problems. Don’t know what to do… frustrated, because I did like the map better then some of the others I’ve played.

    • Alanna Davidson

      My game freezes when in real time Weaver comes into the room and unties me from the chair and it gets through I think what is most of the video (*SPOILER* after he figures out Reznov wasn’t with him) and then it freezes and makes a long continuous beep. It doesn’t turn off if I hit the power button, I have to unplug it. That’s happened in some other games too, but in this one, its stop me there. It takes me back and I have to do the mission before it again. It’s on Wii. Please Help!!!!!!!

  • blair

    when i 1st bought the game it was fine for about a week until it started to freeze at the xbox live menu and zombies menu, i gave it back to my brother. then he bought another one it did a different thing. when i put it in it worked for about 2 days then it scratched it up pretty well inside the system. we tried using disk cleaner but nothing. now it just doesnt want to play it says open tray or disk is unreadable now. so if i try to buy another one it might do the same thing its like a nightmare what should i do?

  • alex

    • Rafael_rodriguez3214

      It’s probably cuz your nat types aren’t compatible. One of you might have a strict or moderate nat type. If your nat type is strict look up on YouTube how to change it. Hope this helps-_-
