I got this on Saturday for 27 in Asda which almost caused fights in store, as only 7 copies came in on the delivery. Me and my gf put our names down on the list as soon as we got into store, but people who'd been waiting an hour hadn't put their names down. Obviously when we got 2 copies and they got none it wasn't a very pretty scene.

Anywhoo back to the game itself.

What are people thinking of it?

The Menu text just feels and looks tacky and cheap, its like they have asked a kid to choose the font for it and when it loads up it just doesn't have the COD feel and feels like I'm booting up a Medal of Honor game.

The Coop part of the game is ruined by the fact that you cant split the screen the normal horizontal way and have to have it divided vertically. This makes it impossible to play.

I am liking the multiplayer part of the game when I actually got a game I could stay in, Kept getting Error messages about the server for the best part of Sunday. When I did get on a game with some friends I thought it was good.

In my view the general feel of the game is naff and feels as if they have relyed to much on COD4 for the promotion and haven't actually done anything new and in some aspects have actually made it worse.

I posted something in the WLT a moment ago. I am enjoying it, although typical Treyarch problems seem to take the edge away from it.

Ended up paying 3.60 for mine as traded in some games I'd no use for and the deputy gave me a student discount...(heh, nice to stay friendly with management) and had 2.50 on my reward card.

Veteran is the way to play, still find bits too easy, although I am stuck on one part at the moment which is going to really bug me for days.

Online, well worth playing. The attack dogs alone are much more entertaining than the helicopter. Scary and gritty and the new War mode (old mode Domination) is pretty awesome - capture and hold the flags, but in order.

It's a bit of a surprise that I'd give it about an 8/10!

Hopefully Zombie Nazi mode will be great and enough of an incentive to beat the single player game.

I think I will eventually get this, but maybe it's not my first choice at the moment with so much else coming out.

Um i was looking forward to it........ hopefully the online problems will be fixed soon, i will only go through the one player due to Achievement hunting lol.

But hopefully i will have it soon and the online will be fun. But i have got a few games coming soon and do not want to leave any of them behind. Once i finish GoW2 story and the level 50 horde i think i will move on!
