Product Description

Call of Duty: Black Ops is the latest installment in the massive Call of Duty series which sees you taking on some of the most secretive missions at the height of the Cold War.

Manufacturer's 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.

Call of Duty dives into the secret world of the Cold War
Call in deadly attack choppers in Vietnam
Attack a Soviet outpost in the frozen Ural mountains
Use new weapons such as a Dragon's Breath shotgun

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.

Key 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.

Hmmm ... I got it on the day of release and I'm really not sure about it.

I'm strictly old school when it comes to FPS games and only consider playing them on the PC whether they're solo or multiplayer: you just get way more accuracy and control with the WSAD/Mouse combo and I have been playing that way since Doom came out in 1993, which is nearly twenty years, after all.

I own a Wii, but generally don't get on with consoles in general as I find it really hard to use the controllers. There is a new gizmo coming out shortly that allows a keys/mouse set-up to be attached, but ... what's the point?
You may as well just play PC as do that ...


Black Ops.

SinglePlayer: excellent story line, starting with the Cuban missile crisis in the Bay Of Pigs in the early 60s. You're actually strapped in a chair and are being interrogated throughout the campaign section of the game, and the various missions take the form of flashbacks. There are numbers popping up all over the screen from time to time and you've obviously been brainwashed or at least severely damaged mentally at some point in the last 30 or so years. The game then moves through various international incidents that have called for strategic initiatives and covert operations, sometimes in the midst of an all out war (Vietnam), sometimes not (a raid on a Russian silo, breaking out of a gulag). In all, there are 15 solo missions and you work back and forth from 1945 to the present day, sometimes as a Russian with western sympathies, but most of the time as an American.

It's gripping as a story, perhaps the most cohesive yet in the series, and the set pieces are - as always - spectacular.

OK I don't do this very often but had to this time.
Were do i begin the hype surrounding the release of Black ops excited me to the point that i stopped playing MW2 in anticipation of new arenas for multiplayer death and destruction. Have given this game about 5 days now and unfortunately the out come is not good at all. The lag is so frustrating you cant get a proper mach at any level that is not slow and jerky. The developers in stead of trying to get the game out for Christmas and making some money should of finished the programing and maid the bloody game work properly. And now on to the Solo game Story is OK the cinematics are good but the game keeps crashing and ounce again the thing is jerky and laggy even when you tern all the graphic options down. But why should I have to do this I run a top of the range Sony VAIO that has not had any problems before. Sort the thing out and to you the consumer don't bother save you money...

I was very apprehensive about buying black ops after the problems with MW2 and the connection issues mainly but after all the hype I gave in and forked out £40 for this BETA test....

The game has connection issues even on dedicated server's connections don't hold brilliantly and I can't even connect to a zombie online game whatsoever!
Countless PC gamers haven't even been able to play the game as it stutters due to poor conversion from a console version (a recent patch has made it playable for many but not 100%, with some people noticing no improvement)
The campaign is one of the shortest I've ever played and doesn't offer much variation from the run & gun like the previous titles did it seems to focus more on the cut scenes than interesting game play
Vehicles controls are clunky and by far not as good as they could be

In MW2 there were a couple of maps where snipers could be a viable class on pretty much all the BLOPS maps sniper is greatly UP and of no good unless you've got a hack (of which there are loads already)

Avoid this game until a massive overhaul has been done to iron out glitches and bugs.
The worst part I've not seen any real apology or word from Treyarch or Activison apart from moaning on their twitter about how people are angry it's disgraceful!

The review will 3 parts - SP, MP and overral thoughts.

1) Single Player
I've played all installments of Call of Duty franchise and watched the series evolve from MoH wannabe to dominant species in FPS market. And yet that evolution has not fixed the games biggest shortcoming - fixed, scripted gameplay. The single player campaign is 5 hours of, what some people call, cinematic experience. Which is a bunch of rather short and 100% scripted levels with respawning opponents. That's it. It's like Trans Formers. A lot happening but first of all you can't seem to grasp all the details and it's over way too quickly. Plot-wise it's not better either, as a bunch of completelly different missions are supposedly connected by a vague story by main character.
Graphics-wise the game is a mixed bag. On Radeon 5870 with everything maxed out some details are great (faces etc.) while others look terrible - the opening scene in Havana bar. The character sitting next to you has a detailed face but the shirt and cigarette pack have textures that look like they've been pulled out from a 1995 game.
Sound is generally good but volume level seems uneven between game and cutscenes.

All in all, the single player campaign is not worth 30 quid. I don't think it's worth 15. Scripted, and supprisingly tedious despite being fast-paced, and over waaaay to quickly, the single player campaign looks like a cheap ad-hoc addon to the multiplayer.

2 stars only.

2) Multi player
Here the game comes alive. Or rather it would if all the problems of MW2 were fixed. Maps are still square, big and very busy. You're in the open most of the time and there are just too many paths through the levels. If you start going around, you'll get shot, full stop.
