    Young people want to play multi-player & online for free without the Steam .. Such as Medal of Honer .. So how do you play free .. Is there a solution

    steam is free. obviously you have to buy the game but you can play online for free. now if you pirated the game thats a different story cause since black ops is a steam game that is the only way to play online and it is impossible to play online with a pirated version.

    Would anybody know how to stop my Black Ops from freezing on the second last level of the campaign?…when Mason is being punched in the face. I tried changing the Anti-Analysing to 2x and putting shadows on, as well as pressing the Esc Button, but this only resulted in the gameplay being slower.
