    Yeah, it's the cream of the crop for FPS's considering Call of Duty and Medal of Honor aren't even out yet....

    I'm looking forward to MoH but I thinl Black Ops is going to suck. I haven't been impressed with Treyarch's efforts. As for Halo:Reach, it's incredible, it has the scope and MP elements of Halo 3, but it feels much more like Halo: Combat Evolved .

    After the debacle of MW2, most FPS are going to be just about as awful. MW2 is a glitch and cheating fest, while Reach is nothing more than the same game they built 7 years ago. Reach multiplayer is a joke. The only Slayer matches that anyone will vote for is Sniper or SWAT, because they can get their instant headshots while only a fraction of one pixel of their head appears on the landscape. In order to counteract the instant sniping you can...jump your way across the board! The camping in MW2 was a joke, but it is 100% worse in Halo, especially when in a Sniper or SWAT match.

    I only hope that they take COD4 and take all that they did right in that game when they make Black Ops.

    That hasn't been my experience at all.

    Same here. I found that people listen to each other and come to decision together.

    Yea I've found people are much more tolerable than in Halo 2 and to some extent 3. Plus there are filters to avoid obnoxious players.

    As for the game mechanics gripe; Maybe he just isn't very good, it's pretty easy to avoid campers.
