Product Description

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 Not perfect, but still great! 9 Nov. 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
After having completed the game and played all aspects, i can happily say the game is great and i'm glad i bought it, but it comes not without penalty. It has good & bad points like most games. For me the good points are:

- The amazing gameplay and solid storyline that you'd expect from call of duty now days, the moments where you do more than just shoot everything in sight and are left thinking "woahh!". This game retains plenty of those moments and executes them very well. The storyline itself in this game is a great conspiracy thriller that will surprise you, maybe one of the best COD storylines to date.

- The customizations and extra features that are now here, killstreaks, limited character customization, equipment, emblem and playercard, lens and sight, neat new weapons and attachments (some old) the list continues. [You'll love the remote controlled RC bomb] And another new item that is great is the camera spike, it's amazing how helpful they can be.

The level design is wonderful and never gets old due the the diversity of the game (time periods and locations) Kowloon was brilliant and i hope it makes it as multiplayer DLC. Most of the multiplayer maps are great fun to play on, from a jungle to a snowy mountain top. (launch & nuketown also spring to mind, on launch i've seen people standing there staring at the rocket take off while bullets fly past them, and on nuketown at the end of the match, boooooom. The multiplayer levels are now more interactive than before, in small or big ways.)

- There are more vehicle moments in the game like a motorbike for instance or the chopper gunner you've no doubt seen, there's alot more i'm sure you'll enjoy, it all adds variety.

3.0 out of 5 stars CoD BlOps (what a silly name) 27 July 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
It's hard not to recommend a new Call of Duty game, what with the continually high standard of gameplay, the ever addictive multiplayer, now with a revamped upgrade system, and new modes and the fan favourite zombies mode which is a frustrating endeavour alone but becomes a fun divulgence with friends.

If you wanna be where the multiplayer community is at you'll want this game, new maps, more customisation, perks and a theatre mode sweeten the deal as do more absurd zombie scenarios, but if you don't have an internet connection or just don't like that scene it may be harder to stomach.

In addition to the campaign two player local zombies, four player multiplayer, with bots through a free update, the text adventure Zork and a new arcade top down shooter called dead ops arcade all come on one disk, the last of these could easily be a XBLA, PSN or steam download alone.

The campaign has you as Alex Mason, a mentally unstable CIA black op operative that wakes to find himself being tortured for information regarding some numbers, information he all to readily divulges in my opinion. The ludicrous story then takes you through a series of flashback levels starting in Cuba, moving through Russia and Vietnam and ending in Blowfeld's latest bachelor pad. It's all very silly and takes more than just a little inspiration from general cold war conspiracies, the Deer Hunter and even Fight Club. World at War characters Reznov and Petrenko return for a cameo that is actually surprisingly effective as a narrative tool and the new characters feel distinct and appropriately cool.

The campaign will last somewhere in the region of 8 hours on a medium difficulty and is pretty entertaining all round it just suffers from its over cinematic-ness (if I can use that as a word).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game. 31 Aug. 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I only got this game in 2012, two years after its release date because I was hesitant after the success of Modern Warfare 2 I thought this would fail and it kind of did as you can see in the general star rating on here. I got it because I was bored of all my other games, and at worst I expected to find some enjoyment in the campaign, I love CoD campaigns, I played the last one (Modern Warfare 3) twice through. I wasn't expecting to but I absolutely loved the campaign and as a result I've completed it three times on regular, hardened and veteran. The campaign is really well put together, the cutscenes use some actual footage of the Vietnam war and the twist at the end regarding your character friend Victor Reznov is really interesting.

Playing on veteran however I found myself getting frustrated with the AI of my teammates and how they would just run in front of a whole army and not get shot whilst I would be targeted as soon as I leant out of cover. That's not the worst though... Many times when my two teammates would take cover either side of an open door and enemy soldiers would run past them to get to me. This happens all the time and it makes having teammates pointless.

Zombies is ok, I've not really played it a great deal, I prefer survival off Modern Warfare 3 to be honest however I much prefer black ops's multiplayer...

The last time I played multiplayer on CoD was on Modern Warfare 2 until I got bored at about level 25 or something, I played a few games on Modern Warfare 3 and didn't bother after that because of the amount of campers. Black Ops is much more fun for me even though there are very few good maps. I'm level 40 now and still enjoying it.

It definitely has problems but I've played 20 hours of multiplayer, about 2 hours of zombies and the campaign three times so it's definitely worth four stars in my opinion.
