Black is good. Very good, in fact. The weapons are nothing short of exhilarating and you need not worry about using ammunition sparingly as bullets are liberally supplied at all times. This, of course, alows you to be equally liberal in your blasting of this ammunition into the enemy. That said, you will NEED to be liberal with your ammunition as it takes an extraordinary amount of bullets to kill someone. This, however, makes the weapons all the more fantastic to play with.
The graphics and sound are simply phenomenal.
BUT. And this is an almighty BUT. THIS GAME IS VERY, VERY SHORT. After having bought Black on the Sunday, and having completed it by Wednesday, I couldn't help but feel a little short - changed. There are barely any missions. So even replay value is somewhat diminished as going through the same narrow selection of missions becomes tiresome.
To be fair, an individual mission can be quite long. So, even if you want to play just one mission, be prepared to take a big chunk out of you day.
Overall, there is a lot of fun to be had here unloading '47s and RPGs into terrorists and inanimate objects alike. It looks and sounds brilliant and there is probably no better game for the PS2 in the "Lets Blow the F$*& Out of Evreything and Evreyone with a Kalashnikov" genre. But buy it cheap. Because the short length of this agme will leave you feeling distinctly out of pocket if you pay much over 10 Pounds for it.
