The latest game in the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops, has been causing some up roar in the gaming world since the day of it’s release. No I’m not referring to the games violence, realism or storyline but the fact that the developers Treyarch have yet to release a patch which fixes the problems in the PC and Sony PS3 format of the game.
Many gamers playing Call of Duty: Black Ops on the PC and Sony PS3 have experienced random glitches and have been thrown out of online multiplayer games (which is Call of Duty’s biggest selling point) have sent endless amount of complaints to the developers but nothing has been done…yet! Angry gamers have expressed their views directly to the publishers Activision who have released a statement a few days ago stating there will be a patch available in the near future to resolve any problems which gamers are having….I’m sorry a patch is coming 3 months after it’s release!
Personally, I’ve played and experienced the problems Sony PS3 users are facing. Call of Duty: Black Ops is an amazing game, there’s no question about that but the sheer fact that gamers are shelling out £45/$50 for a game which, lets face it, doesn’t work properly really puts a downer on such a successful franchise. I know many games have a few glitches here and there (an example being one one of my top 5 games of all time – Fallout 3) but for Activision and Treyarch to release a game which is faulty on the day of release and still is 3 months on is TOTALLY unacceptable.
Let me know if you’ve experienced any problems with Call of Duty: Black Ops!
Until next time,
