    "G" works better for me than does the middle mouse button. Everyone is different. Hence, the ability to remap.

    So, is this game worth buying for multiplayer... worth the fricking $59 price tag? (cant believe this game is $60...)

    Killing some zombies, got to lvl 46 by a glitch where they hit u and u fly up and i landed on a tall place where i was unreachable and made it to lvl 46 but i got bored and quit and didnt end the game to see the score as 90% were headshots and they were lining up themselves lol. Level was five in pentagon

    I paid $40 from Ebay. Works fine. People I play with have reported the latest update fixing lots of performance issues.

    Value? Depends on what you're buying it for. SP campaign? It's good. Fun, good plot, has its own flavor that's worth a play through. MP? A lot of that boils down to how many and which people shift over to Black Ops from CoD4. CoD4 has a strong player community going for it. For me, that community is an important factor in the game's MP value. The MP itself in Black Ops seems decent but I haven't played enough to really comment.

    It's less like MW2 than I expected. That is a good thing.

    The general consensus I'm getting is that CoD4 is more fluid, and feels more skill-focused and less encumbered, even after accounting for the fact that most of us are more accustomed to maneuvering in CoD4. That makes me feel that CoD4 is better suited to more serious competition players. Black Ops is naturally more cinematic.

    I'm the same way. Absolutely LOVED CoD4, WaW was ok, and MW2 was a steaming pile of shit.

    I want to know what this game is the most like.

    It's closer to CoD4 than MW2 is, but it's still more like MW2 than it is like CoD4. WaW and MW2 had a one night stand and Black Ops is the love child that resulted. And in its defense, it takes the best each has to offer and tosses a flavor of its own on top. But I can't rank it up there with CoD4, at least not yet.

    Then it's not worth $60 to me. It needs to be CoD4 quality or better for me to even remotely considering paying $60 for it. Hell, I only paid $40 for CoD4 (on sale), like 3 months after it released.

    Right now that sounds like the right choice to me. Looking back, if I didn't have to get it to benchmark and be familiar with the games my clients play (half my clients are gamers), I wouldn't have bought it.

    Down the road, it's a question mark. As patches/updates are released and we see how the community shifts to back either game, Black Ops may start to shine. And of course, we're not all looking for the same thing in multiplayer FPS gaming, so a lot of it depends on your taste.

    If you're happy with CoD4, didn't like MW2, and don't have any particular reason to play Black Ops ... I wouldn't buy it. Once I'm done benching Black Ops, guess what I'm going to do? I'm probably going to go back to playing CoD4.

    Guys,

    has any of you tried to run this game with eyefinity? I set the resolution to 5040x1050 and the game just looks stretched. I have tried all available aspect ratios and nothing changes. Any suggestions?

    i haven't tried but it does have that FOV option, have you tried messing with that?

    some games are just not coded to fill the screen properly. as you said it stretches, leaving everything out of proportion. FOV can help but thye might have simply not given you the control you need to make it look good.

    i'll try a little later today and see if i come up with anything, I just don't have the third monitor hooked up atm...

    On the title screen, escape from the chair and type DOA into the computer. This will unlock Dead Ops Arcade. To unlock 'FIVE', complete the single player campaign. ;)

    It's at the very bottom of the graphics options screen CP. You'll see it there, I was actually pretty happy to see it there after the BC2 issue with editing an ini to change FOV or using an editor program.

    Wow with some of the patches they just released the other day, the game runs much smoother and at a MUCH higher FPS. I am surprised they fixed it this fast!

    Treyarch is good with supporting their CoD games. They were badass on patching the bugs out of WaW.

    Man, I'm on the fence about this game. Is the multiplayer engaging, fun, non shitty?
