 i think call of duty black ops 2  and moh: warfighter will have great battle this year and i think the game that delivers compeling story to experience and good & great graphics (both story and graphics) will win this batlle not in sales i think in gamer's sight

Infinity Ward didn't make Modern Warfare 3.

 

I guess you could say they did, but that's like saying the "Yankees" would still be the yankees if instead of Derek Jeter, Cano, CC, Granderson, Tex, and all the others, they had a team of high school baseball players from Ohio.

 

Which of course, is ridiculous.

 

But then again, that appears to be your idea.

wow, no breakdown at all.  Just a stupid piece of toast that gets in the way of the video.

It's funny how GS put this video as a "breakdown" of the trailer when they actually just put comments in it...

I got to agree with you, Treyarch is getting the better of IW.

In my opinion, it's because the people who came up with the original COD MW series is gone from IW.

Another thing is I hate how everyone is hating Treyarch b/c its not Infinity ward. Right now in my opinion Treyarch is the better company now. Every time they make a new cod it gets ppl's attentions. For example black ops one was a great game it had everything; zombies, great multiplayer, story-line, and COLD WAR!.Now they are getting ppl's attention again by having it leading into the future. What did infinity ward did? NOTHING, OH LETS PUT IN MORE WEAPONS AND SAY ITS MW3! lol

I think the main story line might consist on time travel? Think about it, just think of the possibilities!

I think it is not about judging the game before we even play it, you can tell whether you like or dislike the game from the trailer, because the trailer is part of the advertisement for the whole project, it gives a detailed brief about what you gonna face in the game, I think we are not kids anymore, we are not gonna go crazy by how big the guns are, how much the destruction is and if there are fantasiesed technologies inside the game or not, we got mature and our reception to the games got mature also, WE NEED games that simulate the normal life, events and technologies we are living, WE NEED stories that make us drawn to the games to find what the end will be.

The key of success for CoD4, CoD6, CoD8, BF3 and BO1 was because they simulate the real life actions, the action we saw on movies and we heard from real battle fields, that's why we all liked those EPICS, BO2 it is Great it is a hard work of people for nearly 2 years, BUT, excuse me I don't want to do covert operations in 2025, I want (if possible) to re-do the Black, the Covert, the Secret operations that took place during the cold war, those actions that we all read about and we were drooling just to be there doing what they do, A REAL DIGITAL INTERPRETATION TO A REAL MILITARY ACTIONS.

Make sure you pre-order black-ops 2!! Because if you wait a day after release to get it, you will have already missed two more CoD sequels...

@ GAMESPOT!!!!!!! Im not buying this peice of shit, and I am for sure not going to follow CoD: Black Ops 2. Stop making CoD headlines (it isnt news)

Wow, that was horrible....IGN's breakdown is much much better. PLUS people talk in it and they rewind parts of the trailer to analyze.  This video...not so much.

 @aam77t I'll be getting MOH: Warfighter and Halo 4 before I buy Black-ops 2, I am really bored of the COD series at moment.

 @asswipe12 no. it'll be like instead of shifting through characters working in parallel in the same war, they've thought that an even better back and forward will be to shift between characters in time. we'll probably play Mason in the cold war and about how Frank Woods became the bad guy or some dull tearjerk story, while in the future (2025) we'll play Alex Mason's son, David. yeah, the one with the curly almost-afro hair and twice the tatoos.

Frank Woods looks like Robert Downey Jr. There, i said it!

 @mortadhasami your right about we gamers have matured, yes im one of them. it's got a lot easy for me to name the games i really like. becaeuse there are not many out there. companies make games for kids more. i personally think CoD sells because the teen range like it a lot more. because it really doesnt require skill to shoot. i'm not gonna lie i like CoD too but it's my timekiller not my game to enjoy. i dont play and dont like strategy games but i love making strategies for a simple door in swat 4 and still to this day i randomly play it on my pc. and i disagree with you on the terms of games must represent real life. no its not true. when i play DeadSpace (mostly 1) it sucks me in. it has everything gameplay story ... i loved it when until the last moment that isaac boarded on the ship to get away the game had story to tell me. mediocre games are all over the market now like syndicate. trying so hard to be good. good on graphics yes but this is one of those games you realize graphics are not everything. for now i like ghost recon. aside tactical gameplay i really loved it when they said "killing is not the goal of this game, gathering intel and sharing it with your teammates is" max payne is coming too. but i really love to use my head more. true max is our hero those times we played it day and night, i will play this one too but we have matured right?

 @aam77t aparently reznov will appear somehow in some form in Black Ops 2. SPOILER: in black ops, reznov dies after mason escapes on the train. reznov is caught by the germans and shot. at least presumably. because later in the game we find out his body was never found. he was awesome in world at war though. as for Price, he is the biggest name in Call of Duty franchise, i'm sure he'll be back.

 @dcrabiddog and you're awesomly pathetic. true gamers pay for a battefield game as much as for any call of duty. the quality is pure subjective and you don't have to be a fan to enjoy a game or the other. and if a gane is not suited for you, go muffle a goat. you,on the other hand, you're just awkward.

 @kennythomas26 I'l advise you to buy Black Ops 2 because I think its gonna be a little different than other COD games.

 @xsonicchaos Capt.Price will be back because without him there is no point of Modern Warfare but as for Reznoc I'm not sure.

 @blackace_143 I don't think so I'll stick to my last comment and I will not be getting this game for a few months after it as been released sorry man and with you advising me on what to get,  so I'll just pass on this COD game.
