Guys I know it's very different to other cod games but, why the hatred?! It's a great game which I personally prefer to mw2 and 3. Although those games are also very good (apart from mw3 being a money making scheme). It's game play online is very addictive, especially before you prestige. I'm going to focus on online, however before i start I would like to point out that the campaign is very good and when our WiFi wasn't working I completed it and it is a great time-filler.
Anyway, onto the online. The online game play is different to the modern warfare series completely. Perk setups and general class setups are fun and addictive to create. There is a good variety of player matches and wager is awesome. The graphics are very good, and killstreaks are well done. I love the way in black ops you can stack killstreaks (i.e you can have the 3 top killstreaks- chopper, dogs, and chopper gunner, and if you get 13 kills (the amount needed for a chopper), then you get all 3. ) another nice thing is that you can use a killstreak and still be able to get the next one from the amount of kills you have (i.e if you have a spy plane, and use it, you still only have to get 3 more kills to get a care package, rather than starting from zero kills).
Very brief i know, but its in my opinion the best cod.
