COD MW2 is much better than COD Black ops. MW2 offers quick scoping, better weapons,and better maps. There has been nearly triple the copies of MW2 sold than that of Black Ops.

First, I thank my opponent for the debate. It should be interesting.

I respond to my opponent's opening comments:

"MW2 offers quick scoping, better weapons,and better maps."
This statement is completely opinionated and has no support to back it up.

"There has been nearly triple the copies of MW2 sold than that of Black Ops."
There was no source given for this information, so it cannot be counted as true.



I'd like to organize my first rebuttal into three topics: demand for the game, reviews of the game, and the overall experience of the game.

First - There is a higher demand for Call of Duty: Black Ops than for Modern Warfare 2. Opening release day sales of the games are 4.7 million for Modern Warfare 2, but this number is smashed by Black Ops' whopping 5.6 million sales. [1] Black Ops was also the most pirated game of 2010, while Modern Warfare 2 was not even in the top five [2]. This, too, shows that more people want the game, and so it is better in that regard.

Second - Comparisons of the games show that Black Ops tops Modern Warfare 2. In a study conducted by nowgamer.com, both games were analysed and various areas of each game were compared (such as maps, game modes, etc.). It was concluded that:

"It's clear that Treyarch is standing on the shoulders of giants here, and we're in no way putting down Infinity Ward. But the fact remains that Black Ops is the greater multiplayer experience. It favours skill, weeds out annoyances and gives everyone a level playing field. We're confident that Infinity Ward will see what Treyarch has done and give us another great multiplayer element next time. For now though, Black Ops is a shining example of how to reinvent the wheel." [3]

In a somewhat in-depth review and consideration of both games, Black Ops came out as the clear victor.

Third - The experience of Black Ops is simply better than that of Modern Warfare 2. On vg247.com, the experience is described as "the deepest and most intense Call of Duty experience yet" [1]. Gamespot.com, although tied the overall rating for both at 9.0, listed the good of black ops (I'll let you read it off the website) and only one bad - a short campaign (but does not say a "bad" campaign). [4] Modern Warfare had fewer "goods" and more "bads" (a short campaign as well, but in addition the plot is confusing). [5]. Obviously, Black Ops has a superior experience in both multiplayer and singleplayer.

Again, I thank my opponent for this debate and await his response. Good luck pro.

My opponent's response is completely opinionated and holds no support. He also neglected to refute any of my claims so I will extend all arguments.
