So apparently this game was just released as backward compatible. This used to be my favorite game for x360. After the sequel came out, the hacking became ridiculous. I swear I saw a god mode player rolling around the map as a car.

Has MS done anything to address the rampant hacking in the new version? Otherwise, I don't see how they could expect to charge $20 basically for an only usable single player.

I know they did nothing with black ops.

The game being backwards compatible only means it can be played on the One. There's absolutely no support from the developer which is what it would take to control the hacking. Xbox doesn't care.

Unfortunately, they're charging for the single player portion of the game and not the MP portion which means they don't have to worry about selling a product that can't be used as intended.

I started playing this again the other night on the one. It seems much better than the last time i attempted to play with the hackers. Out of the 30 or so matches i have played the last few days only thing ive seen was one player with super movement speed. A year or so ago when i played last every game had 2 or 3 god mode people in them. So seems alot less affected right at this moment.
Cheat codes used to be a series of buttons on your controller now it's a series of numbers on your credit card.

I've been playing it since it became backwards compatible and I haven't seen a single hacker in about 20 or so games.

With so many players back in the game now I have yet to get into a hacked lobby. The reason the hacking was so bad before was because the game was dead and the only people left playing were the hackers. Much like Black Op's you will rarely run into hackers while the game is currently popular.

There are hackers unfortunately, but at least they are not as prevalent as they were before the game was compatible. Today I had menu screen text saying Hackers will keep hacking until the servers go down. Absolute lowlives, ruining a game that people want to play properly again now that its Backwards Compatible.

How many people are playing now?

I'm thinking about going and getting this, but I have the ps3 version, but if I could squeeze some time out of it I'd get it on here.

They are still around but you were much more likely to come across them when there were only 1000 people playing world wide. There was 12 k online the other night.
Out of about 15 games. 1 was a bit iffy and one guy was flying under the map in and and bullets did nothing to him.

Chances of this ever being patched?

The last couple of matches I've been in have been pretty sketchy. I also think some people can tolerate these things more than I can. I can't wait til that add Bad Company 2 and people start playing that again.
