    With you having not played WaW it's difficult to say whether you'd like it or not.

    Personally I've not been overly impressed with any of Treyarch's efforts...though Black Ops is the best of them IMO.

    I know that's not much help...sorry. :blush:

    Get it Alan!

    Even if the game wasn't as good as the previous versions, playing with the AVF crew without doubt makes the game what it is.

    Try renting it first and give it a whirl. Everything in life deserves a whirl.

    In my opinion for what its worth I don't actually like it that much. There has been lots of effort put in to customisation of characters and weapons etc but I don't think the graphics sound effect of weapons and gameplay is as good as MW2. I won't sell it because I will always have mates to play it with but deffinately back on MW2 for the timebeing and bought all the mappacks now

    Like MW2 the SP campaign is too short, too easy and the storyline feels hashed together.

    Think of the last 3 cods put together (style and play wise) and you get Black Ops. Seems they just took bits from each of them and came up with Black Ops. I would at least give it a try.

    Buy it Alan but don't expect miracles, at least with black ops you will have time to get the brews in mid game:rotfl: or at least catch 40 winks:boring:

    I had it and never actually played it on my own XBox as my internet connection was down for over a week. Played it a lot down at my brothers though (I can't live without Live - he was sick of the sight of me!) and was so impressed that I traded my own copy in for NFS Hot Pursuit.

    Probably going to pick it back up now though, purely because I felt like a leper on Friday night when everyone else on my friends list was on it and I was plowing a lone furrow trying to beat Kahluafan's HP times. Defo think MW2 is a superior game though.

    None in mw2 now as they are all trying to find some way to cheat in Black Ops
    Find MW2 a much better place to be now.

    I know, seems they`re all adapting. I best make the most of Black Ops while its still ok to play. Once everyone`s doing it that`ll be when I trade it in! :rotfl:
