Never heard of it. Is it any good?

With the new map content, this is a great deal on a good game. I wish they'd do some retro COD4 maps though... that'd make this the best game of all time

Too bad it sucks. Returned it after owning for a month due to the fact that it can't hold a candle to Bad Company 2. Black Ops is a very mediocre game when compared to BC2. BC2 has far better maps, far better weapon balance, far better squad-based action, destructible environments...spend the money on that, instead.

If I didn't suck at Modern Warfare 2 so much I might buy this

most people are either a fanboy of BC or COD. as always, you bash the one you don't like. BC is sweet, but a very different feel than COD. I personally liked both MWF & MWF2 better than Black Ops. This is about as high a price as you should pay for Black Ops IMO.

@ishcairn: Agreed, while I really liked MW2 I was a little disappointed in BO (with all the hype everyone expected the world)...but Bad Company 2, holy crap, that game is amazing. I just like the size of the maps and the more options as players with the kits and the vehicles and the use of strategy as opposed to running around wildly (seemingly wildly) and shooting people (Halo style). I did get Medal of Honor over the weekend, finished single player in about 5 hours, started multi and found out it was just like BO format (CQB style). Oh well...I can wait for Bad Company 3...whenever that comes out.

That being said, for $39.99 and free shipping this is a great deal!

BO is for people that like run and gun and have fast reflex's and a very good internet connection. If you don't have either then don't play or you will get murdered.

And if you do play and play any of the game styles other than TDM, for the love of god actually go for the objective and not run around killing/camping.

IS BO or BC better for single player campaign?

@goldiemcg: RE: BFBC3 -- It's gonna be 2012, probably December. Battlefield 3, however, comes out December 31 of 2011, and the signs are all very positive for it. The destruction engine is further updated and fighter jets will be reintroduced. While I have some concerns for balance, I have little doubt that DICE will produce. Battlefield 2 and Bad Company 2 are the two best games I've ever played in the genre.

That being said, Modern Warfare 2 was very good for those who prefer more arcade-ish shooters, and is superior to Black Ops in all ways except for weapon balance.

@mykejsw27: In my humble opinion, Bad Company 2 is superior in single player as well. There's a great deal more strategy even against AI, and the story following the 4 main characters is much better.

Plus BFBC2 Vietnam is cheaper and has more maps than the COD Map pack
