Black Ops - quality!!,
This review is from: Call of Duty: Black Ops (PS3) (Video Game)
At 36, I'm really new to the whole gaming thing, and primarily bought a PS3 for the blu-ray player. However, having seen the advert over xmas for Black Ops, I thought I would give it a bash as it looked good fun - and how glad am I that I did!!
It may well be old hat to hardcore gamers that have been doing this for years, and a few of the reviews would suggest that - but to me, I was absolutely blown away by the graphics, which are just outstanding. The game is magic fun, really realistic, and really immersive. All set in the 60's, so cold war/Nam theme. Playing a special ops soldier on deniable operations - brilliant!!
The thing that really stands out to me though, is the attention to detail - there are a lot of subtle nuances that really add to it. I'm an ex-soldier in real life, and was grinning like an idiot at diving into cover to change magazines, or covering your mates as they clear rooms etc, great fun!
If you are new to the whole PS3/Gaming thing as I am and are having any doubts, or think this is for kids - forget it, big time - buy this right away and you won't be dissapointed - it's the best laugh and most fun I have had for ages and worth every penny. Get rid of your bird for the night, buy a case of beers, and start wasting some ruski's or taking down charlie in Khe Sanh (which is like playing a part in the film Hamburger Hill)
Class, get it bought lads!!

Glad you enjoyed the game mate - however if you like this then you absolutely must get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
