For those of you who consider yourself to be a hardcore fan of zombies, how are you finding the spinoff mode from Call of Duty: Black Ops? Are you loving it, or are the slight problems found in the game ruining your overall experience?
We definitely put ourselves in the ‘hardcore fan’ category, as we’re currently loving the new levels and features that Treyarch has put together for the game. However, we’ve also noticed a few problems as well which are worth mentioning, problems which are starting to become slightly annoying.
First of all, you may not have experienced this so far, but we played a recent three-player game and found that although all three mics were switched on, not everyone could hear one another – i.e one person couldn’t hear me, but I could hear them, and so on. While this may not seem like a huge problem, it is pretty major in the context of the game, since communication is the key to survival.
Another problem that we’ve found is the frequent number of hosters ending games. To think that Treyarch has added a host migration system to multiplayer, why couldn’t they have put one into zombie mode as well? It is incredibly annoying when you get to a high level, only for the host to quit making the rest of the team suffer because of it.
There are also the obvious connection problems which in a way are out of Treyarch’s hands since matchmaking is region dependant, but we would like to see more details before you enter a game, so you know where a hoster is playing from, so you don’t end up wasting time, and viewing that ‘really annoying’ cut scene every time you finish a game – at least give us an option to turn it off Treyarch.
We’ve also seen dogs getting ‘stuck’ in certain parts of the map, but we only saw this happen once so we’re not sure if it’s a common problem with the game or not yet.
What are your thoughts on the problems listed above? Have you experienced any of them? Maybe you have spotted some other problems with zombie mode which you feel we should know about. Leave us a comment below.
