I can't believe Microsft actually passed this piece of junk , talk about rushing games out . This might be passable if we were talking 20 bargain bucket release , but we're talking 50 AAA title here , this was suposed to be a so called next gen game here and I can't even enjoy ONE game online without a glitch , bug , or some other thing spoiling my enjoyment . The online component has just completely ruined any faith I had in this game to be any better than COD 2 . When i first put the disk in it updated which I thought was a good sign ... how wrong can you be .

Ranked games , are a complete waste of time - they DO NOT work . Rooms are empty and populate slower than two 90 year old's . Im not waiting for 15 minutes to start a game , why does it take so long COD2 was up and running within a couple of minutes at most . :confused:

Non ranked , standard player games are also a joke , sometimes when you die you see the black screen and cant respawn , last night i eventually respawned about 10 feet in the air while i was winning a game and i couldnt move or do anything till i got shot then it didnt respawn me at all , i had to switch off my console . Soometimes vehicles let you in , othertimes they dont .

Friends games , about 20% of the time you can join ( but then see bugs above ) , other times you cant , and if you cant you cant get out of the menus easily it always wants to join the same game again next time .

Single player games , some guns give you no FORCE FEEDBACK .... what so i get force feedback on a little thompson machine gun , or a KAK but i pick up a high cal killing machine and it doesnt give any feedback .... what ????? :uzi:

This is starting to seem like a trend in an awful lot of 360 games over the past year and is definately getting worse , the single player game in a lot of instances is fine , but take it online and it seems like it was playtested by a bunch of chimps . Great games are being ruined by bad testing/certification COD2 was awful till they patched it up 2-3 months later and after that was fine , Saints Row was bugged and just not worth playing online cos of lag and the single player game was bugged to hell too , frequent glitches , lockups , etc , now COD3 takes the biscuit .

Come on Microsoft and developers pull your fingers out , just because we can download patches doesnt mean we should have to .

END OF RANT !!!!!!!!:mad:

I’m glad you mentioned how crap COD2 was before the patch, as it was completely unplayable till the patch 3 months after release. If you read back over the forums you will see how many people ranted and raved on this is sh1t etc I will trade this tomorrow, im so angry etc. But look how many people continued to play it after, its he only game I play online, (more or less). Its amazing and holds its head high as a fantastic online experience.

Now im not defending COD3 here but its great fun online, I have been lucky I guess with my online experience so far. Admittedly I have not gone for a ranked match, as I really wanted to complete the single player experience before going for the ranked achievements. Now we all know how great the game play is of COD3, and I think once the bugs have been ironed out it will become the online shooter of choice and will supersede COD2 for the mad fun that it is.

Lets just hope we don’t have to wait 3 months for the patch to sort it out.

You're right. It's pathetic that we pay lots of money for trash like this.

what are you guys talking about?! are we playing the same game?

I got the game the day after it came out and I haven't even been able to play a single Ranked match. I played a buggy Player match but that's it. The online in this game does, in fact, suck monkey butt.

COD2 is my probably my favorite game to play online and I was hoping 3 would really step it up. I'm just praying a patch comes out soon or I'm gonna be PISSED.

I am actually enjoying the online modes. The team games are quite fun since teamwork is a lot more essential this time. Team Battle and War are my favorite modes. I also like using the vehicles and think they were a nice addition to the game.

Huh? I've played over 50 ranked matches fine...No bugs no nothing. Only problem is waiting a few minutes, BUT, its getting better. Only takes two minutes TOP to get in a lobby and another to get 8 people. I hate the underpowered Axis, but its REALLY rewarding when you beat the allies :D :D :D

I've yet to get into a Game online so I don't know about lag or anything but the single player game Owns easily one of the best looking and best playing war games around.

I enjoy playing online in this game more than i enjoy playing the single game. The single player was just to boring for me and offered nothing new. I got it the day it came out and have still to play a ranked match which does piss me off as there are achievements for it. I've got better things to do than hang about for 10 mins waiting to get into a ranked match.

Why are you directing your rant towards Microsoft?? Why not point it at Activision? THEY are the ones that developed the game, not Microsoft. They simply sell the console to run the game and run the xbox live, which STILL requires the patches be created by the developers at Activision.
