Glad to see someone else can see it for what it is.
I'll be completely honest with you, I thought the 2017 game was underwhelming and was hoping the original would be better so that I could be an epic contrarian about it.

You can't be a contrarian if you hold a popular opinion.

But the 2017 game is actually quite good, I don't know why so many people irrationally hate it. Probably because the second half is pretty weaksauce.

It is unfortunate, but let me tell you: I did buy BO on Steam, it happened to actually be 63% off the total price of game + DLC (a very rare occurence indeed), and after playing the port for some time with my buddy who loves Nazi Zombies, we discovered a sad truth... The PC port sucks. Don't buy it. If you're going to buy a BlackOps, buy BlackOps3 on PC. Not only is it properly optimized, but it has in-game mod support.

OG BO on PC is riddled with poorly transitioned code, poor optimization, massive bugs that will never be fixed, and poor resolution scaling. My suggestion is to simply get a 360 or an XbOne and play local splitscreen or LAN with some homies. Nothing beats it.
Just to follow up, I picked it up and played some. It rocks. Looking forward to playing some more on Saturday with my buddies.
Also wanted to ask, you got any map recommendations from the workshop? A couple of maps I miss from back in the day are Call of the Dead(where George Romero slowly follows you around everywhere) and that Black Ops 2 map set in a prison(forgotten its name... Alcatraz?)
