Treyarch = FAIL not all that different from Modern Warfare 2 other than MORE lag, and LESS fun.

With every new COD game it seems to me lately like they try to make the game more difficult by simply giving the AI the ability to instantly kill you whenever they please. When I say they kill you instantly I mean it. I don't ever play games on anything but the most difficult setting, but this is ridiculous. It's not so much a matter of how good you are at playing the game as it is how lucky you are.
Also, I have several time been stuck in a spawnkill loop, only to have to restart the mission. (Where every time you spawn you get killed by the AI instantly)
On to Multiplayer. This could have been fun - but again Treyarch went and messed up a good thing. By making the game MORE cartoony and less accurate, they've effectively alienated the MW2 player base.
My biggest problem with Black ops is the fact that people you JUST KILLED - always, (And I'm not talking occasionally) ALWAYS spawn about 20 feet behind you. I've actually done this myself many times. By spawning enemy players so closely it effectively makes sniping and long distance strategy worthless. The win always goes to the gamer with the quickest twitch aim. While this is GREAT for games like Unreal Tournament and Quake, it's not realistic and it's not Call of duty. Heck even in World at War it wasn't this bad.
PLEASE GOD let Respawn Entertainment make a real Call of Duty game next year? Or at least Modern Warfare 3.
I won't be wasting my money on Treyarch anymore.
