Thought I'd set this up for everyone getting Blops 2 today. Here you can moan about the inevitable disconnects, partying up problems, small maps or trash talking tweeners and the like. Hopefully there will be few, and the game will be enjoyable.

This is definitely the worst COD so far. Hit detection is way out, the game lags beyond anything you've ever seen before and all the maps encourage spawn killing. You'd think that with all the millions that the developers rake in from misguided, bespectacled, pre-pubescent Rambo wannabes that they would at least spare a few quid for dedicated servers instead of the pre-Millenium gaming experience you receive. I've got a good mind to contact Anne Robinson at Watchdog because the consumer has been taken for a ride for too long.

The guns are utterly unbalanced. Some could stop Godzilla with a single shot whereas others have are akin to throwing marshmallows at the moon to bring about tidal change.

Very disappointed, worst game since that recent Leisure Suit Larry travesty. Once I've played it, I'm sure I'll have even more to get irate about.

Blops 2 is so rubbish it hasn't even arrived yet. Is that what you mean by lag?

Not trying to troll here but did anyone else think that this years COD release was rather tame? I remember last year there was adverts everywhere for MW3, people were queueing up for ages to pick up there copy and places sold out so quick. This year on my walk through the city centre on my way to work, there was nothing. It seemed like a normal day. Could this be the slow decline of interest in COD?

Maybe Captain, but as Amazon has had more preorder for BLOPS 2 than any other game ever maybe not ?

I was watching someone play it over the weekend (pirate copy, tsk tsk) and Sam Worthington still can't hold an accent for more than five seconds. Disappointing.

I hope it is accompanied by an extensive Booklet, detailing every buttons function(s), full character biography's and a complete breakdown of the spec of every single weapon and perk or they'll be hell to pay!

I love this COD, third best behind Black Ops (1) and COD 4. The campaign has had an okay start, quite like he acting, don't like a couple of things that I don't want to say in case it spoils it at all.

Zombies is very good, some nice improvements in there.

The multiplayer is the main bit though, I've had absolutely no lag issues at all, had the odd getting shot behknd a brick wall moment with delay in the hit registering but that's it.

I have two major gripes though...

The graphics are now well behind other big games, the big explosions and everything look fancy but the textures are horrendous, especially when you first start an online match and it takes ages for them to render.

Also, as was mentioned, it's the worst back cover to a game ever. I'm a big fan of the back covers of gamrs and getting a wee taster; the back of Dishonoured is brilliant, the back of BLOPS 2 sucks.

The graphics aren't exactly stunning (wasn't expecting them to be really) although I was hoping for better as the bloke's face at the very beginning as you start it up for the first time looked really detailed but alas no. It's quite colourful though which is nice for a change, I like how they've used all sorts of unusual placements for the maps like the bullet train and boats.

I saw an option to install textures (1.8gb) so that's an option perhaps for anyone finding the render rate a bit painful.

I haven't played on the train station map yet. Is it specific to a certain game mode?

Had a great laugh last night, despite my somewhat lack-lustre performance which I hope to improve once I learn the maps and get used to hardcore. At least you lot don't play snd anymore.

The lag was a bit annoying, although I had full connection I was regularly skipping about the map, hopefully that'll settle down a bit and it was nothing worse than any other cod opening night.
