Default Call of Duty: Black Ops... PATCHing


Many of you may have heard bad things about CoD:BO and I have to agree on most of them. They pushed the release date out to be "as soon as possible" and it seems they had a 3/4 finished product on their hands. Now it seems, their game is finally gaining life.

At first I was not impressed about the game. My first impression was that I had just blown $60 on the release date. Let alone the fact that my closest gaming friends had bought the game along with me, and they couldn't play it.heir frame rate was terrible (25-35fps) and it even crashed anothers PC multiple times.

After multiple negative reports and a LOT of consumer complaints Treyarch has released several patches. In the past few weeks and many new patches being implemented they are finally close to their mark. There has been a noticeable difference in gameplay smoothness on my PC and Reports from my friends say that the game is now playable (still not great however). The FPS is still not up to par and the overall smoothness is still a bit bothersome.

There are some patches coming out soon for some of the weapons also. These include some knife and sniper rifle tweaks. Not a lot of details have come out yet, as far as these are concerned.

Final word,
This game is good, however it is still a "Work in progress". The gaming community is still sending feedback to Treyarch and they seem to be listening. With the oncoming patches and the attentive developers this could be the game that we are all hoping for. So if you don't mind feeling like a "Beta tester" and are looking for a fun new game this may be it. If you are considering it but are unsure, then save your money and wait. The hyped game that we all heard about may be around the corner. Just a few more patches, and a little more time and we could very well have...
