IMO: Worth it.

Way better then the first one.
Multiplayer is awesome and Zombies is much improved.

I wasn't a huge zombie fan.

I loved MW a couple releases ago mainly just multiplayer.

A lot of people that bought the hardened edition, care package and pre ordered are really pissed right now. Nuketown was advertised for those who pre ordered. I, for one, never pre order don't see a point in it. However, I guess activevision failed to tell their customers that nuketown 2025 was only for a limited time. It was the only thing I liked playing :/

Game wise it's really good. The multiplayer is glitchy now but eventually it will get better. If you liked MW3 you'll like this game.

Not a huge multiplayer fan for most reasons already stated. Finished the campaign pretty quickly, much too short but not bad fun factor wise IMO. Glad it was a rental and not a purchase or I would of felt ripped off.

Nothing wrong with it, but it's just kind of the same game over and over now. After playing Halo 4, the graphics don't look that great and the techno soundtrack in the campaign sounds cheesy.

IMO

Aftermath - Team Deathmatch for me... still don't know if I'm playing other gamers on-line, or not... hard to tell.

I select Play On Line and message tells me I have to 'sign up' on Sony Entertainment Network... the thing is... I'm already SIGNED UP...!

Obvious I'm very noob at this... I was 12 years old 44 years ago, so I have NO IDEA what I'm doing... but it is fun I will say that...!

Anyone wanna take a wild guess my user-name...?

Just get a PS3, when the Ps4 does come out. It will be expensive and only have a few games out. And those new systems all have some bugs and stuff to be worked out.

I heard it isn't supposed to come out until late 2013 or 2014 but the PS3 will be supported until 2015.

You kids just don't want to be Jelly when I am the first to get the ultimate setup. I'll probably need to move the 60" Sony into another room to make room for the 100" screen I'll be rocking my games on.

Zircon and I will have a battle to the death. I haven't gamed since NES, so I am awful.

I would still get a PS3 now. They are super cheap on these black friday deals. Plus, like FP said, the first ones are sometimes glitchy and will not have a lot of games for it until maybe a year or two in. Then the first ones will be $500 and up. Also the PS3 has DVD, Blu-ray, netflix, youtube, amazon video, hulu plus and others so you can always keep it as a multimedia player in another room. I connect my PS3 to a 1tb hard drive and always watch movies off the external drive.

Funny that's what I did when my OG 80 gig ps3's bluray konked out. Just moved it to another TV as a media player. Recently bought a new one, opted for the 160 gig slim instead of the super slim which is kind of cheap IMO (even though the hard drive is bigger). Now my old PS3 just plays NetFlix and DVDs on another tv which is great so my lady can watch "The Braxton's" (lol) all she wants while I'm on Battlefield.

I tried to play counter strike one time, but I couldn't handle it. I have a feeling that I'd fair better in real life that many of these playstation gurus. But, it might be fun to play. I'd play you Zircon, b/c I don't stand a chance against a 18 year old.

That is what's wrong with the game

IMO also. To anyone on the fence about this game; If you liked MW3, Black Ops, MW2, Call of Duty 4...You will, again, like this game as it is the same hehe.

I was thinking about getting this game, I had the first Black Ops, and then realized what could they do to make part 2 better? Oh it's in the future with new weapons? Cool. So I bought Halo 4, cause its really really in the future.

Halo 4 is the only shooter you need this winter

Battlefield 3 is my war shooter of choice still...I played black ops for an hour and put it away. Same game every year. I got caught in the hype this time too

Black ops 2 is still filled with kids throwing random grenades across the map and running around like a headless chicken... But still fun if you play in hardcore mode.
