This game is total crap…it doesn't run properly on a pc…why in gods name don't they get a patch that works..it freezes at startup…black screen with fatal error and even if it gets past the first scene in the bar (once in about 15 tries) it just crashes. No way would I EVER buy a load of rubbish from this company again!!!!

I have had my PC on nearly 24/7 since 7th Feb. I restart Steam constantly and start balck ops constantly. Not to play but to start the patch download. I still have th eproblem that I cannot buy anything since I prestiged and the patch is supposed to fix that. I still have the problem but have no way of knowing if the patch is installed, downloading or what. I just need a frigging clue as to the version (patch) I have and if not 1.06 how the hell to get it. Once upoin a time steam let you see… Read more »

I would like my $65.97 back, I have other things to spend my money on. Install was a pain, forgot to tell the newbies they need to register with steam first (download would crash, error out before registering). During Campaigning I have reached the boat, jumped in and then I get a white screen, cannot proceed forward, it locks up my computer!. I am going to take whatever legal action to get my money back!

This is so funny… There have been like 10 people asking where they can get the patch (besides directly from steam) and everyone is so self absorbed they can't take the two minutes to give the information. I see this on a lot of posts. It just cracks me up. I apologize to those of you who are seeking an external dl for this cause i don't know either and actually took about 20 min of my time to find it for ya's. I just can't believe the "me, me, me" attitude of these people who want to bitch about… Read more »

Maybe you guys at trearch should talk to the people at infinity ward to find out how TRUE professionals make games…. Why would you release a game with so may untied ends? I'd much rather wait longer for the game than to be frustrated by it's lack of attention to detail. The patch helped a little, but again ya shouldn't need a patch of this magnitude for a freshly released game! Good game (in concept), But Major fail in the timing of an unfinished game release!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

I bought Call of Duty Black Ops the day after it came out for PC. I have downloaded the patches through steam and have done everything others posted online to get this game to play half way decently. Single-player is so bad it is unplayable. My CPU is running at 100 percent during multi-player mode and even that does not work for me. The lag and constant freeze ups during game play makes shooting virtually impossible. My system has over the system requirements for the game, so I know that is not the issue. I even turned all my resolution… Read more »

What you guys don't realize is that they WANT the pc version to be bad. They want pc gaming to die for FPS so that everybody will want to say screw it and get a PS3. They purposely wrote bad coding so that pc gamers would have a hard time. They did have most of the kinks worked out, but then screwed it up because they don't like the fact that we have as much freedom as we do. They don't like spending some time to work out the pc, yet they will work overtime to make the consoles a… Read more »

I have set my graphics back to '96, and in the best of cases it doesnt stutter every time i twist my mouse around. Best of cases I can aim for a head, and make one headshot, if by any luck the guaranteerd lag isn;t there for that millisecond. Great job Treyarch! I kinda thought this game would be good, with the dedicated servers announcement, I kinda expected some work put in for the pc-community…but hell no. It's quite ironic: I was desperatly awaiting BO, to escape MW2 with all the noob cheaters (which ruined that game), only to find… Read more »

Game is unplayable for me because of lag. Single player and multi. Even after patch and tweaking the config file.

The game works fine for me. The killcam is lagging a bit tho. The game seems to have some problem to run with W7. Most of my friends that are running it on 7 have those lag problems. I have none with vista. After the MW2 fiasco, BO couldnt have been worst anyway.

Patch worked for me, no lag, no freeze, perfect play.

My only problem is that i cannot "follow a friend into a match", the box is greyed out… and when i try to make a server a "favorite" it does not end up in my favorites list, but if i try to re-favorite it, it says it is already a favorite… I have all the filters off…

Before the patch the game was barely playable, after the patch all the microstuttering was gone and my lag went down from a constant 200 ping on every server i played to mostly 100 (60-150), great work, but it's a bit sad that they didn't iron this out before releasing the game, since it looks like it was pretty damn easy to fix.

I was running fine out of the box, except for a little laggy. Then the "patch" came out. It was installed, and seemed to fix alot of the lag issue. However, NOW, since the patch, I now have the game just shutting down to a black screen, and I get the "fatal error" message.
What is up and how do I fix it?

They make a beta, run out of money, start to sell it to get money, then finish the game. /cheer for tryarch making a game fail again (cod5 for example)

Patch only solved the server related lag for me, random game freezes still here, running x64 Windows 7 with a GTX260.

I'm on a dualcore laptop, ATI 4670 4gb ram, i was having a horrible time pre patch… as of now, at least trying it for 20 minutes i no longer had random screen freeze ups when someone was shooting at me, and I could actually look around without small lag spikes and fps jumping from 50 to 5… Seems like the problems are gone, more testing is required though.
