2.0 out of 5 stars Same mistakes!!, 26 Dec 2010
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Call of Duty: Black Ops (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I was considering not buying the game because I remember being disappointed with Treyarch's "World at War"; but I asked for it for Christmas nonetheless. I thought that if I didn't like the mulitplayer and the campaign then at least I could have a quick blast on the zombie missions.

There are some improvements: the guns actually sound like real guns now; on the campaign you don't have to dodge innumerable grenades during each mission; and the graphics are much improved from World at War.

However, I find that's where the good news comes to an end. The multiplayer is, in my opinion, nearly unplayable; how many bullets does it take to kill someone? If two (or even three) enemies are coming at you you can forget taking them both down with a skilful couple of bursts, which I remember was a frustrating fault of World at War. But what I really despise about this game is the spawning; you can be happily sat somewhere sniping or picking off a few soldiers running across some open ground in front of you, only to find that the man you have just killed has re-spawned right behind you and stabbed you before having time to react. Utterly shambolic!

The campaign is mediocre, and doesn't really build on past titles. Sadly, the fun has been taken out of the zombie missions, too. I think the Call of Duty series has run its course because this is just boring. Of course, there is an army of fan-boys out there who give this game such praise you'd think Jesus designed it; I think if they released a cheese and onion pastie with a Call of Duty stamp on it it would still manage to be an international sensation.

Save yourself a wad of cash and buy either Call of Duty 4, which is still very much the best FPS, or enjoy the highly underrated Battlefield Bad Company 2.

I totally agree with your comment here my friend, was quite overrated and the fact that the call of duty franchise is so crazy now, it's unreal. Call of duty 4 was definitely one of the greatest ones to date, campaign and online, but I totally disagree with you on Battlefield Bad Company 2, that was quite simply the worst and most boring games I've played in a while..... Online was quite good though but not very addictive.
