Product Description

Platform: PLAYSTATION 3 | Edition: Standard

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love Is A Battlefield 5 Oct 2011
By W. Nash
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, everyone put down your guns for 5 seconds & take a breath!.. I fear that during the "Yes it's Great" & the "No it's terrible" conflict, the game isn't able to get a fair chance. I think this is because some people are comparing Black-Ops to the Modern Warfare series. That's probably not the best thing to do as this is made by Treyarch not Infinity Ward. Therefore it's going to be more like World At War than anything else: Seeing as this was Treyarch too. I actually love this game, but then I loved World At War, which is also in my collection. Unlike Infinity Ward, Treyarch games are quite brutal. They're dark & brooding, focusing heavilly on the death, real war produces. Grenades remove limbs & big guns splatter blood all over. Hell, even the way the chemical weapons kill people sees you almost feel sorry for enemies caught in it. I think they're like Modern Warfare's vampire goth, horror movie obsessed older sister or something!

Gameplay & Storyline:
It's been said that Black-Ops lacks originality. Okay, maybe in some ways yes, but in others I think they've added a few variations here & there. During the campaign missions it's not just full on warzone as one minute your in Cuba on an assasination mission, next your trying to escape a Russian gulag & then trying to take a hill in Vietnam. The Campaign is driven by a pretty good storyline - (if maybe a little convoluted here & there) - where your character Alex Mason is being forced to relive memories about top secret missions during an elaborate interogation, trying to uncover the truth about these mysterious numbers stuck in Mason's head. The guns and the environments are all unique to the time period & help create that: "Cuban Missile Crisis" era perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why so much hatred??? 2 Nov 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I can't understand why so many hate this game so much, I've been playing it off and on for months now, really enjoyed the campaign and am having great fun playing online, especially in domination mode. Perhaps it's not as good as MW2 but let's face it, not many games are, but Black Ops is still a quality game!

3.0 out of 5 stars Same old same old. 7 Mar 2011
By G. Wheeler VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Call Of Duty is a series that has always been arguably the best shooter series out there but its only been since its debut to the next gen consoles that its really cemented its place in the history books. World At War was a fantastic game that really captured the highs and lows of World War 2 (which has been done to death in shooters) and the Modern Warfare games breathed a different kind of life into the series.

After the success of the 2 Modern Warfare games and World At War, Treyarch announced that a new title focusing on Black Op missions in the Cold War would be released much to mixed opinions. Fortunately, Black Ops delivers.

The new setting is a welcome change from the same old same old and on the whole the game captures the setting perfectly with a wide range of story missions ranging from the Vietnam jungles to barren wastelands in the space race. Each setting is unique with different weapons and tactics ranging from stealth to all out attack which helps to make the different levels feel fresh and exciting.

The story follows Alex Mason, a special forces operative as he relives his memories whilst being interrogated by unknown men. Without ruining the story too much, anyone familiar with World At War will recognise Victor Reznov who makes a return in this game. The story isn't anything special and after the first play-through its very unlikely you will want to run through it again except to grab the trophies you missed first time around. This is a shame as with such a unique and different setting its frustrating that Treyarch didn't produce a more memorable story and a better plotline. Victor Reznov is the only real star here and that's due to the fact that fans will remember him from a previous instalment of Call Of Duty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why The Hate? 1 Feb 2013
By Fazal
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I dont understand why this game is 3 stars. It is a great game and implements some new never-before features in the CoD series, Exclusive to the BO Series. We got a currency, Known as CoD points, so instead of waiting to unlock your attachments, you can buy them straight away. You can also use this to buy perks, attachments, weapons and much, much more! If you think your good at the game but you lack CoD points, put what you have on the line, and gamble in the new Wager Match system. Its simple, Put some money in, If you come 1st 2nd or 3rd then you get up to triple what you put on the line. If you lose, its a small loss of money, Depending on how much you put in. A new feature is a second class of customization. You can now change your suit, facepaint, camo, RDS reticule and your sight lense. You can put your clan tag and emblem on your gun too, Speaking of emblems, You can now create your own! Rather than picking from some crappy ones. I personally love Zombies mode, but I get bored after playing for a couple hours. I dont play Campaign but its very good. Multiplayer is the king of Black Ops. And is the best part about it!

4.0 out of 5 stars A must buy 7 Jan 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
having just finished the game, there are parts of it that are superb but overall its not quite 5*. the game consists of individual missions or 'black ops' and focuses on historic american military missions such as the bay of pigs in cuba or the war in vietnam. the historic accuracy of them adds value to the gaming experience but unfortunately they're all implausibly tied together by a far fetched story line which, along with some of the over the top in-game action, makes the game somewhat over sensationalized. for me, the best parts of the game contained the least action - these are meant to be highly secret operations afer all. when there become so many enemies on scene that the situation turns into a full on battlefield slugfest, the game loses the tension and momentum that come with covert operations. there are however also great moments in the game where stealth is required and despite the niggles the game is very well put together and almost instantly re-playable. moments that made me smile were boating up a river in vietnam listening to the rolling stones (pick a movie!) & escaping from a Russain prison. overall, an enjoyabe game thats difficult to put down and at the current price must be worth adding to the FPS collection
