This review is from: Call of Duty: Black Ops (PC DVD) (CD-ROM)
I was very apprehensive about buying black ops after the problems with MW2 and the connection issues mainly but after all the hype I gave in and forked out £40 for this BETA test....
The game has connection issues even on dedicated server's connections don't hold brilliantly and I can't even connect to a zombie online game whatsoever!
Countless PC gamers haven't even been able to play the game as it stutters due to poor conversion from a console version (a recent patch has made it playable for many but not 100%, with some people noticing no improvement)
The campaign is one of the shortest I've ever played and doesn't offer much variation from the run & gun like the previous titles did it seems to focus more on the cut scenes than interesting game play
Vehicles controls are clunky and by far not as good as they could be
In MW2 there were a couple of maps where snipers could be a viable class on pretty much all the BLOPS maps sniper is greatly UP and of no good unless you've got a hack (of which there are loads already)
Avoid this game until a massive overhaul has been done to iron out glitches and bugs.
The worst part I've not seen any real apology or word from Treyarch or Activison apart from moaning on their twitter about how people are angry it's disgraceful!

He's neither trolling nor mentally deficient, you're comment is completely one-sided. I've heard mixed thoughts on BO from it crashing to having the worst graphics since Doom, so I guess, from your comment, half of the world are trolls?
I've seen my friend play Black Ops on XBox and even they had trouible connecting to a match and staying on it, even when their signal was full. It's blatantly Treyarch's fault since if they can't make a game which is visually and mentally pleasing, then they really shouldn't bother. World at War and Modern Warfare 1 were the greatest, and MW2 and BO, in my opinion, ruined the whole series.
Seeing just this review has made me think twice about buying it. I'd rather wait for Treyarch to fully finish it then I'll at least consider it. As for the campaign, my friend said they finished it in 3 hours on Regular. They took 8 hours on MW2 on Regular and 10 on WaW, on Regular too. From what I can see, Treyarch have rushed the game to a point where it's beyond ridiculous.
Henry's review was no-where near trolling, he said it was terrible and explained why clearly. A troll would just say it's rubbish and that's it. If they had a mental deficiency, how would they be typing fluently? It's pointless trying to offend someone because they have a different opinion than yours, it's childish.
