I agree, Black Ops is a better game...FOR SURE!
I'm still going to stick to MW3 because it's the latest, but I should hit max prestige around May and then I'll hit jump back on Black Ops full-time until Black Ops 2.
Black ops has already been through many patches so it's hard to compare, but yes, I think it's better.
People are just sheep and will always say the newest cod is the best.
Next November 2012 it will be "mw3 is so gay! Black ops 2 is the best!"
November 2013 " blacks ops 2 suxx! Mw4 is the best cod ever nothin will beat it!!"
I think overall the games are pretty equal, but with MW3 so early in its life cycle I think its kind of hard to compare the two at this point.
Black Ops was a more tactical game. Guns weren't as strong, but explosives and killstreaks were way stronger. Maps were much bigger, spawns were way more spread out and overall the game took a lot more strategy.
MW3 is game that tries to force gun on gun action. Stuns, grenades and even killstreaks are not anywhere near what they used to be. The AC130 is about half as strong as what it was in MW2, the Reaper would be great if it didn't warn the enemy it was about to kill them and the Osprey Gunner is solid but the MW2 Chopper Gunner was way better. This games maps are small, spawns are hectic and this game attempts to force gun on gun action.
I guess it really depends on your preference in playstyle.
I am personally finding MW3 more exciting due to the simple fact that with spawns being so bad there is always constant action. In Black Ops it was very easy to pick up choke points that if you passed them it would cause the spawns to flip, but in MW3 it seems like the spawns flip for no good reason. People spawn at A behind you even though your whole team is sitting between A and B and they own C flag. Things seem so hectic and crazy in this game that I just find it far more entertaining at this point.
Currently Being ModeratedRe: MW3 VS BLACK OPS
That's what I like about BO. Its learn the maps and spawns or die.
In mw3 you really need very little knowledge of the map.
I prefer the game that has more a mental aspect rather than random spastic killing.
Mw3 takes away the whole picking the best route to get somewhere, because in mw3 no matter where you go someone will spawn behind you or beside you.
There is definitley some tactical aspect to MW3, but it is far less than the tactical apect of Black Ops, I won't disagree there.
I disagree about picking the best route though. In MW3 there is always 3+ ways to get to the same spot, and a single person can only defend so many of them. So I guess its less about knowing the routes and being lucky and picking the right one, but the more routes you know the more likely your gonna be that ******* that flanked someone.
the maps in this game suck something firece, they needed to cut back on the lmg's and add more submachine guns like give us the ak74u and another smg. kill confirmed is great thats the only thing thats great about this game, overall this game is just ok and even if they fix everything the game will just be ok because the maps ******* suck
I don't know how you think this game caters to campers. The second I stop moving an enemy spawns next to me and kills me. And to the guy who wants more SMGs, what's wrong with the ones in the game already. From what I've seen they're pretty badass. They have high rates of fire and very little recoil
Ya BO was amazing (granted it had some issues, but I personally never experienced any of the bigger concerns). MW3 is a casual catering, mediocre game.
I prefer a skill based game. Not to say MW3 has zero skill requirements, but its lower than potentially every other game in the series (besides maybe MW2, which suffered similar, but different problems).
Its funny that MW3 is the most "action packed" game, yet its probably the most boring. The lack of reward from all the engagements (getting kills from random spraying or spawning behind people gives zero reward). Not to mention increased frustration from the retarded deaths you take just make it not enjoyable.
Just because you see people more often or shoot more often doesn't equal more fun.
