I would've gotten it if it was $50 but it's $59, same as Wal-Mart

Yea...but pretty much all of them have had bad reviews at some point. I went out and got it tonight. I had already put $10 down on the game to get the Nuketown 2025 map awhile back at Gamestop and had 2 old games to trade in. Left out with it for about $22

I played a decent amount of the multiplayer, which is what the vast majority of people are buying this game for, and it felt pretty good. Obviously there will be issues with lag at some point but I really didn't run into much. It uses the halo system for matchmaking to find players around your skill level, which I don't necessarily like but it's not something that bothers me too much. I really like the new pick 10 system for setting up my class. You can get multiple perks in the same category or put a bunch of attachments on a gun which I think is pretty awesome. UAVs now give you +10 assists every time a teammate gets a kill, which adds up to your next killstreak (which is based on points rather than kills), and I think that's a great idea.
If you like zombies, they've changed it up quite a bit but my first impressions were very good. I've heard you can basically complete challenges to get permanent perks. I'm not totally sure how it works but it sounds pretty awesome.
As for the campaign, I read some reviews complaining that it was a standard 4 hour CoD campaign. I told my friend this, who just finished the campaign and he couldn't believe that someone could even do that on recruit. So it's tough to judge by the amazon reviews who is just trying to hurt activision and who actually played the game. There are challenges in the game and if you do the 100% achievement thing it's going to be a huge pain, but I can get over that.
Anyway, I haven't played a ton but I'm pretty sure I'm going to like it quite a bit. Admittedly, I've been a huge fan of the zombies mode since World at War, so I might be a little biased toward treyarch, while other people seem to favor infinity ward. Either way, these games have a history of not dropping in price for a while, and a bunch of my friends already have it, so I pulled the trigger.

|sofeisty||Thanks for this. Was just looking at this a little bit ago and thought, nope. Checked here and saw your post. Same thing happened earlier with CODBO2. SD rules. I wish I'd had that luck with the cat trees and cameras.|

Amazon Reviews Destroy This game
I've not played but the reviews on Amazon are bad enough to make me stay clear for a much cheaper price point. Aside from issues about not having access to the free Nuketown map, people are upset about the maps, guns, and gameplay. Maps aren't designed well, guns are sketchy and don't seem to provide anything new, gameplay is worse than first one. Graphics are an upgrade though. Again, this is all from Amazon review, nothing I've seen personally. I only get this to play with friends online, don't care about the series or even the style all that much.

|Car0linaGirl||I was hoping there would be a Black Friday deal, so I guess i'll go pick up my pre-order at Gamestop today. Any 360 players on here? How's Black Ops 2 compared to the first one??|

Are you guys waiting for it to get cheaper just to play the single player mode?
I paid 50 bucks for this on release day and have probably played my moneys worth already in multi player alone without touching single player.
