Haven't pre-ordered Black ops or Medal of Honour since their both just re-hashes of other games.

Exactly how can you rip on one game without ripping on the other?

What does Ripping On mean? I'm just saying, Black Ops isn't significantly different to CoD4, and despite some really minor tweaks MoH is just BF with less awesome "/

My opinions are from the beta so they probably are outdated, but there is really nothing that can justify a buy within that game. It's another Run of the mill "brown" shooter that tries to utilize elements of other games but doesn't do a good job of any of them.

I was agreeing with you. How can you call one a rehash when the other is basically BF:BC 2 trying to be COD.

Are you kidding? First of all the COD engine has been revamped and made to look much better. Second, Black Ops is not gonna be the same as MW2! They have added some new game modes, added the new curency model, more customization features, the new theater mode, no more tactical instertion in FFA, no more stopping power, no more juggernaut, no more commando, so Black Ops is NOT MW with a different skin on it.

Is Assassin's Creed II that much different from Assassin's Creed? By your logic, they're the exact same game, save one is a rehash.

Assassin's Creed vastly improved over the first. CoD doesn't do that.

If you don't want to get Black Ops then don't. Nobody is forcing you to buy anything.

why post useless junk

its a debate to why people that play current call of duty see the need to play the next when its in my opinion just a new skin.

who said i was being made to do anything ? where did that idea even come from your attempt to sound smart is fail

What about the two left 4 dead games? Or a game where they change the list of players in the game?

Some times a new campaign make it worth a rental. IF you want to buy year then wait until the price drops.

Persoanlly, Im very content with Halo Reach. Black Ops really does nothing for me and unless MoH gets a major fix from the beta, that game is absolutely off my radar. A new CoD game every year has simply watered down the franchise and each one has gotten worse since CoD 4. WaW was OK, and MW 2 is a shadow of what was a very good franchise. Unfortunately unless we the gamers stop buying these yearly interations of these games, the devs will keep pumping them out with minimal tweaks and add ons and some new maps. There is a reason why the Halo and Gears franchises are as good as they are.....!!!

I've played all the past COD games as well as the past MOH games and truly only enjoyed the earlier ones.

The more recent ones from both franchises just weren't as much fun for me. They basically just felt like bad rehashes with flashier graphics, shorter sp campaign and absolutely boring online play.

I'm not going to make the investment of purchasing either or even rent it until all the HYPE dumbs down quite a bit and we see what we've got.

I'm so leery about new games these days that I don't really trust the old producers any more. Seems like they have a tendency of wreaking by just poor rehash and a bit of glitz without considering a thing called substance.

Yes, but you still that "magic box" from the sky that will contain a chopper gunner because you are a good camper/bush monkey and that is completely lame! Oh, and I love the remote control car that you can apparently drive around for 10 minutes until you find a target. That thing should self destruct after about 2 minutes if its not used!

I'll get Black OPs because COD is all my brother plays and that's how we keep in touch, playing COD together since he lives across the country...besides I did put a lot of hours into MW2 though I haven't played it in months

This, and some people actually prefer the way that COD plays over the other games that have been mentioned, I know I do, I like the fact that I can get in a game and be done in 10 minutes if need be, with Bad Company 1 or 2, they take forever, not saying they're bad games, I like the first, but they're not my style.
