Black ops is a good addition to the franchise however it's nowhere near the best game out
7 May 2013
Excerpt: Black Ops is the seventh game in the call of duty franchise. The main thing to note is that this game was developed by Treyarch, the same guys who brought us world at war. Fans of the CoD franchise will be familiar with the game mechanics on black ops as they haven't changed.
Excerpt: I am loving this new Call of duty. What's keeping this game alive is the multiplayer. The multiplayer is new with its "pick 10" system which revolutionises the new create-a-class system. Play without weapons and go running with knife only with lots of perks?
Pros: Fun, hours of gameplay
Cons: Might get boring if you're not good . Start comlaining .
Excerpt: Call of Duty black ops WOW! what a game, everything i want from a FPS, the graphics, the gameplay,action, explosions and to not get frustrated and getting stuck on every level, Anyone could play this game( that why us gamers have hardcore mode) and feel they could conquer the world, i would...
Pros: great characters,gameplay,graphics and action 10 out of 10 game
Cons: not cheat new and very buggy game(there is a few updates fixes now)
Excerpt: You may already have got an idea how much I dislike Call of Duty Black Ops simply from the headline. Make no mistake, it sold quite substantially and broke previous records set by Modern Warfare 2, but that doesn't necesarrily make it a good game.
Summary: After being a fan of the "Call of Duty" game series, and after "Call of Duty 4:Modern Warfare" (i skipped MW2 and World At War) i decided to buy and try Black Ops, and sadly, it was i feel money wasted The Single player of the game was "mediocre" at best, although the plot to the single player was...
Summary: Some parts are fun, others are not. And what map can make a -huge- difference. Some if not all spawn points are wide open, and predictable, so if the other team camp those it is pretty much game over. Same if the other team gets a point lead and have gunships and such just blasting the spawn points.
Conclusion: Modern Warfare 2 is better than this game in virtually every way. Better engine, better gameplay, better graphics, better online play, better maps... This game just feels far too 'noob friendly'.
Conclusion: I'm an avid fan of all the Call of Duty range, but without doubt it feels as though they've rushed to put this together. Graphics, engine and storyline are all of a lower level than Modern Warfare 2 that was released a year ago.
Conclusion: Call of Duty has delivered again. They have produced another polished hollywood style, action shooter, and still lead the field. As a game its fun, graphics are top notch, weapons and sound great and the story is your typical modern tale of terrorists etc.
Conclusion: ....but let down by the way it runs on many peep's computers. I had to upgrade my cpu to a quadcore to get this to run smoothly. Other than that, I think the game is good, being a 44yr old male that only plays the campaign mode this review is only for that.
