Review by Michael on 9th November, 2010
 
1 stars "The Ulitmate Insult"

I have never been so dissapointed, insulted and overall confused by a game in all my life. I pre ordered this game and have eagerly waited its release for some time now, and upon starting the campaign I realised a few things 1 I just payed $140 for an expansion 2 It worse than the rest 3 The worst AI I have experienced on xbox 360. I really hope people see this game for what it is, and that is an insanely expensive expansion that is worse than the ones before. For treyarch to release a game with so many obvious flaws is honestly insulting to me, I will be selling it as soon as I can. First few missions I witnessed my team mates running past the enemy and standing next to the enemy with out shooting them, another thing I found was that the enemy would run past my team mates in hordes and only shoot at me as if my team mates didnt exist. Now I know people mainly buy CoD titles for the mulitplayer so heres a little on that, it is exactly the same, you have been charged $140 for new maps slightly different perks(something brands like epic and bungie sell for 800 microsoft points) and a crap campaign. They keep chucking the same product out, the only thing that changes is the price, which goes up.

1 stars "Overrated - major let down"

I'll start with the good – I think the multiplayer feels more realistic then modern warfare 2's arcade style.
Now I can go on forever about how bad it is but I'll only list a few things to give you an idea.

  • if you get yellow bars (2 bars out of 5) for connection quality you should just quite right there its way to hard to get kills iv had countless obvious hits/shoots on target without them registering.
  • COD points suck because you can get to level 20 and unlock I.e. A m14 but it dosnt matter that you got to level 20 because you still need 2000cod points to get it and then if you do buy it and never use it there is NO refunds so unlucky for you and thanks for your 2000point donation + everything and I mean everything cost's points and you get about 300 a game if your lucky.
  • people have been playing this game for months I'm sure even though it just came out, everyone knows all the maps, has all the weapons and knows spawn points therefore spawn kills.
  • graphics and physics are mediocre / bodys still die with preloaded animation Which looks unrealistic and stupid , and the graphics look beyond dated and are uncomparable to similar superior games like bad company 2.

I can list more but if you don't get the idea I highly recommend if you are intrested in this game hire it first or just avoid it all together, this is my opinion but also 5 of my friends who are die hard fans of call of duty and are looking at selling this or taking it back because they are very disappointed in black ops. It is also way overpriced I know mightyape got a deal but RRP=150. THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATION FOR THIS PRICE.

Peace

5 stars "If you like 1st person shooters you won't be disappointed"

Another brilliant call of duty installment, With a better more intense campaign than mw2 and the always fun to play zombie mode is back. Online multiplayer nw has splitscreen option for when you have a mate around so you no longer hafto share, The new ranking system makes for a different more customizable player experance. Get black ops and have a dam good time, Even with it's flaws (that most games have) It Won't Dissapoint. Thanks mightyape your the BEST!!!!!

5 stars "Best of Call of Duty yet"

Call of Duty Black ops is awesome. The campaign is the best storyline of the series yet, and the voice acting is top notch with Sam Worthington, Gary Oldman and Ed Harris doing a great job. And there are a few good twists in there as well. But the main part of this game is the online Multiplayer. Treyarch have done it a bit differently this time, and instead of just unlocking guns, launchers, and equipment, you have to use credits gained through gameplay to purchase them. Including your perks! I was a little dubious of this at first but it actually gives you more freedom to customise your setup from an earlier stage. One of the disapointments initially is that you can't have a shotgun as a secondary weapon. But it has stopped a few of those shotty spammers you used to get in Modern Warfare 2. All in all this is a top game and worth every penny scrimped and saved of your hard earned. You won't regret it!

2 stars "A disapointment in the series"

The game is ok.
The bad:
The colours on the maps are bland and grey.
The sound is terrible.
All the guns are underpowered.
The campain is uninspiring compared to other titles such as Halo, cod 4 and Gears of War.
The good:
Zombies is a lot of fun and 4 player.
There aren't too many unballance issues in multiplayer.
Dophin diving is awesome!!!

Description

Call of Duty tackles a whole new era as Black Ops plunges you into the murky height of the Cold War and history's most secretive battles. The world's most popular first person shooter places you in the most dangerous conflict zones of the late '60s.

From the jungles of Vietnam to the snowy wastes of the Ural mountains, you and your team must operate behind enemy lines and using only the limited technology of the time. Luckily this includes air support such as the SR-71 Blackbird stealth plane, as well as deadly attack helicopters and armoured personnel carriers.

Like any Call of Duty game the multiplayer will set the standard for all other console games, with enhanced customisation tools, playable vehicles and a revamped scoring system. There will also be a unique four-player co-operative mode, allowing you to experience some of the most mysterious theatres of war in astonishing new detail.

Features:

  • Retro Warfare: Call of Duty explodes the myths of the Cold War as you join a team of Black Ops soldiers caught up in the fight against communism in Vietnam and beyond.
  • Ammu-Nation: Use new special ammo including an explosive crossbow, Dragon's Breath flame rounds for your shotgun and a range of other period weapons.
  • Twisted Metal: Take the controls of the iconic SR-71 Blackbird as you direct operations from high above or jump into an attack chopper in Vietnam for some close-up action.
  • Online Perks: Create-a-Class 2.0 customisation tool lets you personalise your online battles even more, with new perks and revamped rules for killstreaks.
  • Team Player: Online four-player co-operative mode lets you team up with fellow players as you take on the might of the Soviet military machine together.
