Call of Duty Black Ops: Worst COD game Ever?

We continue to be flooded with negative feedback over Treyarch’s recently released Call of Duty: Black Ops title yet, and to say that the criticism received is just slightly negative, is an understatement.

Modern Warfare 2 came in for a fair amount of criticism after it was released, most notably when hacks started to ruin the experience for hardcore gamers. However, the sheer number of comments coming in slamming Black Ops is starting to get a bit tedious.

Initially, we thought that this was only due to the somewhat ‘poor’ graphics in the game, but it seems like a lot of you are unhappy with the overall experience as well. The following comments below are just a small portion of what some of you have been saying about the game

Shawn stated: ”Not a huge gamer but fell in love with MW2 last year. BO is a complete disappointment. Not only do the graphics stink in comparison, the multiplayer stinks. I had more lag in one hour than I did in one year of MW2. Don’t care for the outdated weapons either.”

Dean stated: ”It’s not just the graphics, the multiplayer is slow, laggy, and just weak. Infinite ward have it nailed on with the playability and graphics in mw2. Treyarch cannot get the guns to have any impact, they feel loose and cheap, while with infinite wards mw2 they feel tight and powerful.”

Don stated: ”This game is such a let down, and we all know it. I preordered this for the PC, and played it today for a couple hours, mostly campaign. I’ve logged hundreds of hours of online play on MW2 and can say that I haven’t seen one part of this game that is superior to that of MW2. The realism in the game is not there. The graphics are like counter strike from 10 years ago.”

Those are three user comments that we picked out from hundreds. We’ve even heard multiple claims that Black Ops is the ‘worst Call of Duty game’ ever, which we thought was a bit harsh. However, it’s all about opinions here on PR and we’re gonna let you have your say on the matter.

Is Black Ops really the worst Cod you’ve played or not?

Have you ever seen ET the Game, Action 52, or Superman 64? This is FAR from the worst. If you think this is the worst, then I think you should check out some AVGN!

Not the worst, probably, but it’s a Treyarch game. Treyarch has ALWAYS been below IW’s standards, and they always will unless they change things. It’s not horrible, just disappointing. I say it’s just pretty good instead of awesome.

This is pretty much unplayable. Much like mw2 just all around bad. Will we ever get a call of duty like cod2 or cod4 again?

Just an all around bad game.. The campaign is IMHO, without doubt the worst game I have ever played in the past 2 generations of playstation. The campaign is; linear, narrow, cheap, and redundant. You endlessly chase after an automated ally at a frantic pace, the graphics are what can only de described as dopey, and silly. The sound is substandard and goofy at times and your AI ally literally screams at you, and frequently. Literally zero realism!! A dedicated gamer just simply expects more and they really nailed the consumers with this low budget carnival prize of a campaign. Multiplayer was a smash… Read more »

(NOTE: I Play on the PS3) Call of Duty: Black Ops is basically an improperly tested and unfinished product/video game.  I actually broke my Black Ops game disk (self-control out the window lol) because all the game did was stress, anger and frustrate me to the max but yet I couldn’t stop playing it (Addicted), always hoping for that one match were everything runs smoothly (good Host) and at best I’d have a little fun, but 99.9% of the time that never happens. Black ops is mildly entertaining at best, what’s most entertaining are the silly things team-mates do (like being last player alive in an S&D match… Read more »

I'd say that 40% of the bullshit with black ops is due to lag and the resulting hit detection – 30% straight up crap map design (to many camp friendly buildings and dark areas not to mention choke points) – 15% poorly thought out perks (if you have ghost then they should have included stopping power, and second chance is without a doubt the worst perk in the COD series) – leaving 15% crap weapons design (famas ak74u dominate if u choose any other weapon then u automatically place yourself at a dis-advantage, shotguns with 100% damage drop off at… Read more »

Cons(since thats what everybody cares about): MW2: Campers, overpower Noobtuber(+scavenger), Commando, overpowered weapons, quickscoping, overpowered killstreaks, stacking killstreaks, (you fill in what i missed) BO: Multiplayer lag, Graphics, sounds and visuals(?), no quickscoping, I put Quickscoping and no quickscoping on both because a lot of people complain about not being able to quickscope in BO but some say quickscoping in MW2 is cheap and unfair. Based on websites like IGN, MW2 has the lowest user rating compared to all the Call Of Duty's. Even CodWAW is somehow more fun. At least Treyarch had a beta test for it. but people… Read more »

Game sucks. Graphics are okay But Ghost camping w/ silencer is just plain horrible. When there was stopping power nobody used ghost and cmaped as hard ecause they need the power to kill other players. Now since there is no disadvantage to using ghost w/ silencer everybody uses it And camps so hard that i just automatically leave. WAW/ COD 4 were the best ones ever cuz every thing back then was balanced until IW Messed it up with MW2 and Treyarch "supposedlly" fixed every thing but just made it worse.

I have played shooters ever since Wolfenstein 3D.( lot's of you younglings dont know what that is, but dont stress your tiny heads with it) I have Black Ops for Xbox, I play with a mouse and a keyboard because I find the controller to be the worst input device ever created. Better to play with a joystick. So on Xbox Call of Duty : Black Ops graphics are on low setting aka CRAP setting. If you kids find it to be satisfying it just meas you HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT HOW PC GAMES LOOK LIKE IN 2011! I hate… Read more »

It doesn't take skill when all the maps are broken. If you look at the main difference between mw2 and blops. Mw2 had more open maps with less bottle necking. All blops maps are bottle necked with crappy spawns. There is like 3 places to go and 99% time if you don't camp ya get shot in the side/back or spawn killed. People who rush with better internet will almost always win a frontal battle.

ok in my opinion its the Worst of all CODs. heres why. the graphics are not sharp as the previous games. The respawning is is the the worst ever: how can you shoot someone, run 3 steps then get shot by the guy you just killed? it was stated that it was made to stop campers but in actuality, more people are camping more than ever. And not because they all suck, but because as soon as you respond, within 2 youre being shot again and again. I love sniping however, no good sniping boards, and all the sniper rifles… Read more »

Number 1: mw2 and black ops are different. Cannot compare apples and Oranges. BUT Black ops is lame. I enjoy counter strike more than this bull, feels like a virtual paintball match, you can spray with every weapon, the maps are just horrid. The maps in WaW and MW2 were way sicker. Overall I would say lose the call of duty and get medal of honor, it's intense, it is impossible to run around you'll just get shot, the maps look real and are made to be random instead of having strategically placed barriers and camping spots, and the maps… Read more »

I came straight from MW2 PC to Black Ops Xbox 360. Why to the 360? Because after my TERRIBLE experience with hackers on MW2 PC, I was finished, so I went to xbox 360 for Black Ops. One thing I'd like to mention before I state my problems with the game is – PEOPLE SHUT THE HELL UP ABOUT THE FREAKING GRAPHICS. Jesus, they're not even that bad… at all. They're like Cod4's Graphics and they were perfectly fine. Now then. Before I state the problems, I will admit that I do suck at Black Ops to an extent, I'll… Read more »

I’m in the military and would like to buy one of these flak jackets they have in this game, I mean come on the DOD should be all over a vest that can protect you from everything except a bullet!!

MW2 and BO both suck, MW2 is just a teen girls dream party with unbalanced drinks and sweets, everyone doing the hell they want and not noticing the other people who want a normal party. BO has 'fed everything over with their oh-so-great changes, changing a sniper is one thing, I don't care that quickscoping (seriously qs is a load of bull and for people who want to show that they have spent too much time in a game), changing the damage output on a sniper, ok, I live with that, until I found out, that this was a complete… Read more »

I hate black ops. Plain awful. Its so easy I get two choppers a game wtd? I am not that good. Treyarch doesnt know how to make games. Treyarch needs to start making pacman. Thats what their graphics look like. Its a slide show of water color guns. No secret hiding spots and it is no fun.

The big let down with this game is the lag on multiplayer, (these are some of the reasons why) some times I can fire a hole mag into someone & just get hit marks then they can turn around a kill me, the knife does not seem to kill at all I can be point blank & it does nothing, the semtex & frags no longer kill but give hit marks, getting killed when all of rounds hits the wall, floor etc & none hit you, the join-in game time is getting a lot worse, (e.g.) Me & my mate… Read more »

Black Ops is certainly better than MW2. Granted there are a few thing wrong with it, such as the spawn system and graphics. To be perfectly honest the graphics are very good, it's just that people got used to playing with the MW2 graphics that when there is a change in the texture and flow in the new games graphics people perceive them as being "bad" simply because it is different than what they are used to. As to the lag problem some people have reported, it may just be your connection. If you have a high speed Internet provider… Read more »

Big dissapointment, not as fluid in the graphics department as mw2 and very laggy at times still. The inclusion of second chance was a big mistake that some servers have to make rules to disinclude it. All hacking cheats should be tagged for all to see, they still ruin alot of games. Treyarch would have you believe that the bugs in the game were normal, the chief exed coming out with some diatribe to protect themselves because fair trade is on their backs now after receiving so many complaints . Remember they mad $650 million in the first five days… Read more »

The game "black ops" is the worst I've ever played in my life, I've never experienced anything so unplayable. And the multiplayer is some of the worst I've seen. I can not play this and get bored after a few minutes. Think at least I managed to get up to level 29, have even tried other games like counter-strike and it is much better I'll tell you.

It takes more time to kill someone in black ops, not complaining. Just pointing it out, in Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2 I could put a silencer on my Tar and sneak around and put em down with 3 bullets anywhere because of stopping power. Black ops was fun for a while, but I really dislike the maps, Too many spots for campers, and I'm sure I am not the only one who runs into campers every single game. Overall I find Modern Warfare series to be more fun, on and offline.

nick

I find the game playable, but would rather play mw 1 or 2. Those that say I'm probably just bad are wrong. My only problem is I don't enjoy the gameplay as much. Don't try to back it up just because you get half your kills from overpowered second chance. I'm glad there's a game for everyone now at least.

Sevisgod

Black ops aint that bad, certainly needs changes. WaW was probably the best CoD game yet (as far back as mw1) for sniping maps and yet Blops has only one decent sniping map(that being array even with the new map pack). The Aug and the Famas especially are way overpowered, a gun that was one of the weakest when it was released got a major boost in one of the patches and when hip fired will go toe to toe with any other gun in the game. The game needs more rural maps, we dont all want to hide in… Read more »

I think that everyone needs to stop complaining…you only hate it because they took out anything that you cant be a noob with…ex. unlimitied GL, tac knife, nuke boosting, commando, quick scoping, sky tubing, spawn tubing, shot guns as secondary, camping, unlimited claymore, all the boosters, all the hackers, machine pistols, javeline, cary over killstreaks, and dare i go farther.

Kids these days so caught up with propoganda. COD needs to go all together, their multiplayer has no depth, and their campaign's are noticebly repetetive. They go for the M rating and yet their the game still plays to kids? I don't get it. Bunch of morons buying no good products.

Johan

Other: CoD4, MW2 and Black Ops are all pretty poor excuses for online multiplayer FPS experiences. The entire product has always been sloppy, and unfortunately, nothing has been done to fix the underlying problems that plague every one of these entries into the franchise. You can spray a turd with Febreze, but it's still a turd.

Treyarch is not a bad publisher, but Black Ops is a bad game. In fact, the worst CoD game I have ever played and I've been playing CoD since it first came out on Xbox/PS2. WaW was tremendously superior to Black Ops, as was MW2… The graphics are trash, the refining of the perks system was a huge mistake (stopping power has been in the game since the start..

Haven't played the multiplayer yet. Still trying to get through the really cheesey Loooong movies of the single player. COD scores 0 on this one as far as I'm concerned. If I wanted to watch really boring movies, I could have bought three for what I payed for this game. I noticed that there is a switch to tone down the violence. I really don't care that much about that, but would like to see a switch to get rid of the offensive language so it can be played without a headset around my grandkids.

My only complaint is that the some of the maps are too big (I'm talking about FFA because that's all I play). It gets annoying running around for 2 minutes trying to find people only to be shot in the back by a camper. I think they should cut the maps in FFA to make them smaller, I know I can just play hardcore but I don't like waiting 10 seconds to respawn (why do they do that?).

If I could actually get into an online game I'd enjoy it more. An average 2 hours of black ops play usually consists of at least 1 hour sat in pre game lobbys before being told "lost connection to host". absolute garbage

mw2 fanboy

The gameplay in mw2 multiplayer is much better than black ops, much smoother and better looking. The knifing is just as ridiculous and the conncection is just hilarious. I really dont understand the spawn system at all. Black ops basically looks like waw engine just modified… oh yeah thats exactly what it is.

i like the game but i felt it wasn't ready to be out in stores when it did. i'm sure that if developers just waited a bit no one would be complaining but since it wanted to beat medal of honor they should of realize that before releasing the game they should of worken on all the bugs specially on the pc, and PS3. until is fixed, this game is really a big disappointment for online players.

BLACKOPS is a load of horse ****. The only people that enjoy playing the game are assault rifle idiots. In mw2 i could win games playing with sniper rifles and semi auto rifles such as the Fal. In BO you dont stand a chance of winning a game with those weapons. Now how the **** is that a well balanced game when all you can realy play with is assault rifles and smgs. What is the point of having other weapons to select.

IMO Black Ops is a step back. I love the kill streak changes which require you to actually earn them. I think knifing is still a problem. I get so pissed when I can kill a guy with 3 shots from a distance but he can glide through 3 shots and knife if he is close. Who brings a knife to a gun fight???? I think they should make it two knifes in the front and one from behind or something. They ruined sniping unless you are in hardcore mode.

I think quite a lot of people have the same opinion as me in that Activision, Treyarch and Infinity Ward have been more on a money fleecing scheme rather than creating the ideal multi player. When COD4 came out everyone raved about it and sales went through the roof, i dont think COD5 WAW was as popular but by far the best version i have played as far as multiplayer is concerned. COD6 MW2 came out and broke all records, massive sales but gamers still had there reservations and the hacked lobbies/ leaderboards are still there after a year and… Read more »

Multi-Player: Erm… I'm trying hard to think of good things to say about this, i know lag is an issue and so are the lobbies and the fact that you can't get into a game, but the leaderboards are innacurate (for example 8 straight games of HC S&D and still not on the leaderboards after a 19 and 1) The weapons are ok but don't have the feel of MW2's weaponary. The graphics aren't what i would expect, dated yes but i think they have the same quality of World at War rather than a ten year old game. What… Read more »

Reading through this lot and it isnt hard to see the plus and minus's about the game, I'm a 40 year old gamer who is ex-army and i know first hand what war is about and have fired numerous weapons over the years.

The problems… Campaign Mode: Short but generally ok, the only thing that lets this area down is the AI of the enemies and friendlies alike, come off it guys, no one in the world can fire an AK from the hip whilst running, and have a grouping of an inch at 100 yards. 7/10

Black Ops is just a failure man, the graphics arent a improvement, there are a regresive impact that shows Treyarch fail and want your money. MW2 has crappier graphics the COD4 MW, why doesnt everyone not notice that? Theres no way they crammed all of that from MW2 and kept them graphics. The textures are subpar or halved, not enriched, though, I do quote ont he PC the grpahics are almost on the same par as CoD4MW2.

Really the lag isn't that bad. I played many matches and only had lag problems once in awhile. It wasn't to the point where I couldn't stand the game though. And if you think that MW2 doesn't have lag issues you are completely oblivious. I have just as many lag issues on MW2 than I do on Black Ops. The guns are not that weak. I have had no problem killing people in just a few shots. If you're having a problem killing people it probably means you just suck.

Cod 4 was the best CoD along with 2. They need to just stop making cod for awhile. Do it right just like the first MW was. Black OP is just as bad as MW2. They keep making the game easier for the xbox kids and computer gamers have to deal with the left-overs.

This game being good or bad has nothing to do with skill. This game is horrible for a number of reasons. The lag, spawns, graphics, perk set ups, dominance of SMG's, over powered killstreaks, and the camping are just a few reasons as to why this game is awful. My ratio in MW2 is a 3.67, and it's only a 2.3 in Black Ops. Now, my ratio is a lot higher than what I had through my first 5-6 prestiges in MW2. Meaning that if I play, my ratio will be above a 3 before I hit my second prestige.… Read more »

Worst Cod ever! I wont reiterate the same thing over and over but this bad. I preordered mine and when I got my copy I was thoroughly disappointed. Although I got an interesting email from Walmart stating that they are sending me $10 back(what does that tell you about the game). That has been my experience with this game, although I do hope that the Treyarch team visits these type of sites and takes note of feedback because if they release another game as poor as this the COD series will FAIL.

Personally i found BO's campaign to be both enjoyable and satisfying, they caputrued the feel of the era (the cold war/Vietnam) with the dark graphics and brutal effects and immersed you into the story. You don't want to stop playing the campaign because you want to know how it ends. Modern Warfare (thats right kids i said "Warfare" not "Gayfare" like some of the less mature of you out there) lacked this in it's campaign mode which i found to be less engaging, it was a simple mix of gun fight…..walk….some dialogue…more gunfights then game over.

And all u assholes who say there is lag, that is just ur terribad connection u stupid bitches, and black ops is way more realistic, with no stopping power, no commando, no overpowered weapons, and no quick scoping, and the graphics are amazing, you guys must have a 10 inch tv or be blind. Go play halo u faggots

Everybody should return this game and bankrupt the design team for such a terrible game…how can you go in reverse with graphics when mw2 was such a great game. I wish I never bought this game

Shouldn't every new CoD game be better than the next? I feel like Treyarch took a step back. Sure they balanced the weapons and killstreaks, but the spawns are terrible. I thought using a suppressor and flanking was a very smart and rewarding move. The opponents never knew where you were striking from as you tore at them from behind. Now, I will flank and maybe get one kill before somebody spawns behind me and kills me. Also, there is no sniping anymore. Why even give the option? The multiplayer just feels like its 12 people running around in circles… Read more »

They took stopping power off. They should have kept it. So if somebody has hardened you use stopping and the game would be harder. Also, treayarch sucks at making spawn points. You could be running around, and you are in the enemy base, and some random person spawns behind you and kill you. Last, they made the best maps for camping. They should have made rushing maps instead. They know everybody hates campers. So why don't they rushing maps.

There are people huh that hafe bought a ps3 when the known and seen how good MW2 was and what a succes it was , but i think after they seen Cod BO they just whant to break ther ps3 , i just can't look at it at all ( bluuughh – i hafe just puked)

I wouldnt say its the worst Game in COD history, It has its Pro's and Con's. MW2 And BO are both very unrealistic games. BO i would say is slightly more Realistic, but in general i'd have to say for COD games they both are terrible if you compare them to MW1, Cod 1, 2, and 3. The campaign for BO is a whole other story though, id have to say The campaign and the Zombies are the only good thing about the game. For the lag, stop complaining it will be fixed.

This games remind me of " RED FACTION' from 10 years ago.
I do not even want to finish it.
Even MOH is a better game than this
MW2 is the best COD game and BC2 comes in second in the same genre.MOH, then, black ops.
Graphics are pure crap, gun play is ridicule, story line childish.
I just feel like throwing up in discuss

Infinity Ward nailed it with the players fluid movements ( stabbing, hit detection and graphics ), but Treyarch nailed it with the balance of weapons and killstreaks ( earning it with skill ). Combined these 2 companies talents and you have the game of the year in the making.

I've played MW2 for a year and I can tell that Black Ops IS THE BIGGEST SHIT GAME EVER!

I've played single player and it is awesome but WHAT THE HELL, multiplayer DOESN'T WORK AT ALL! I don't have the best hardware, got a E6600 and Radeon HD 4770 BUT AT LEAST IT SHOULD WORK with 800×600!

POOR performance, LAG (as soon as there is more than one player on the screen), POOR server performance, AND POOR SUPPORT!

WTF????? Give my money back.

I definitely agree with all those who said COD: Black ops is a big disappointment. Having played all the previous COD's, this is one that for sure puts COD's name/reputation on the line. Whomever built this new engine of gameplay needs to be FIRED!!!

Black ops sucks really bad. What the hell is up with the sounds? Graphics are terrible, movement when running is very sluggish, guns have no weight to them meaning they all feel the same regardless of having a sniper or a ak.

MW2 kills this piece of crap, worst COD ever.

This is a blatant console port, and that port screwed the multiplayer and made it laggy and have shitty graphics. FUCK YOU CONSOLES

This is by far the worst game ever. I logged about 5 hours of gameplay and I'm selling the game as we speak. BO did a great job advertising and marketing it but the reality is the game is a FLOP! I rather have spent $60 on MW2 new maps then deal with this cartoon like experience. What is up with the Spawning in BO's? If you kill an entire team next thing you know the whole team is spawned on top of you and you get murdered. I give the game a 2 out of 10 for a review…HORRIBLE.

Everyone who says this is the worst COD ever are complete and utter fagots… you guys complain about graphics… its set back in the cold war you fucking queers! its suppost to be dark and gritty… sure the graphics might not be good to you guys but you guys have to think about it… graphics aren't what make the game fun… fuck there's a shit load of games that have worse graphics and they where fun… legend of zelda ocarina of time that had fucking horrible graphics for this day and age but its still one of the fucking best… Read more »

Man Oh Man that original comment highlighted in the article had it nailed. These are Counter-Strike quality graphics and if you ever played SoF2 you know that CS didn't even have the best graphics of it's day.

I think its a little bit of a scam that they have pushed a new CoD game rather than an expansion pack for MW2.

LMAO you heard your sens this game requires no SKILL to play – its a bunch of 14 year old kids running around knifing people – its worse than on MW2 with commando i can jump half way across the map to knife you!

Fuking skill wheres the skill on this game? i haven't seen ONE sniper yet because every fuck ass idiot is running around with AK74 with their 10% accuracy hoping they kill somebody – WORST GAME OUT OF COD SERIES – I PLAY IT ON 3D AND THE GRAPHICS FUCKING SUCK

Black Ops : Good Points : Wager Matches And Money System, and perk pro system.. I think its cool that i can buy perks when i want them, and the challenges to get pro are actually related to them.. BO lightweight: melee 30 players, dscape death 5 times, and i cant remmber the third challenge lol…. Vs. MW2 lightweight: run 30 miles using it.. And taking away commando, OMA, and danger close was a good thing too.. Bad Points : Graphics are a BIIG step back from MW2, especially gun details.. guns all handle exactly the same, and some are… Read more »

For what I'm about to say, I expect from 98% ridicule and 2% pity! I am a 36 year old male – never got into the whole francise and last time I programmed anything was on the Amstrad CPC46. However, MW2 offered a complete rest bite from work and the MBA I'm undertaking. It also offered something that Black Ops fails to do…….buy in! In short, on MW2 I actually cared if I died (>2% kill ratio, a testament to the belief that MW2 offered realism to an externt and an edge). Black Ops leaves me cold! However, this is… Read more »

This was absolutely the biggest let down ever for me. I sold the game immediately the next day. To say the graphics are substandard is a gross understatement. The guns used in multiplayer might as well be shooting jelly beans because there is no power in them at all. I will be playing MW2 for the remainder of my call of duty days and we can all only hope infinity ward steps in quickly with a new version to take the disgusting taste out of our mouths that is Black Ops.

I only know 3 call of duty games: mw, mw2, and this one – black ops. I have to say bo is the worst. It's even rude to call it cod : F the graphics and lags. Game is way too fast and the maps have the feeling of a cage : Whatever you're trying to do someone is there and in two's or three's : It has the feeling of old cheap multiplayer shooters the only thing missing is the high jumping and falling to prevent getting hit : Personally I have to say MW1 was the best shooter… Read more »

I am not sure why the heck people think that you have to be more skilled to play in black ops. It actually takes more skill to aim an accurate weapon in modern warfare 2 than a shaky weapon in black ops. Black ops is more spray and pray then MW2. In real life, people shoot accurate weapons. I am good at black ops, and I still think the game is crap. It reminds me of medal of honor on my playstation 2. My 8 year old son sucks at mw2, but is good at black ops. I am just… Read more »

The game is a bit crap, graphics are poor and too cartoony – not as good or as gritty as mw2, the multiplayer has taken a step backwards and the guns are poor.

Back to MW2 and mw1 for me!

I seem to recall MW2 being laggy as hell last year when it first came out…
Overall i like the game, the campaign mode is the best out of all the CoD series in my opinion. Multiplayer is going to take some getting used to, but i don't think it's fair to call it rubbish. Remember when you changed from CoD4 to WaW?!!! Exactly the same scenario, of course the game is going to play differently, just a case of getting used to it!

I was abit dissapointed with the "report player" tab, if you are having trouble with someone just mute them. Also I ran into this one dude whom coudlnt be muted not sure if he was an admin but the game feels like they were having some issues last night and nuketown kept repeating itself over and over. I do hope they fix this apparent server issue.
