My favorite thing with modern video games is taking in the stories. This one did not disappoint. I really got into it. At times when I should have gone to bed, I stayed up playing to find out what was next. The characters are many but memorable. So... It's not confusing even though you play as several different characters and in doing so are accompanied by several recurring others. The fact that the story unfolds through several pairs of eyes is really cool. I found that to be extremely compelling.
As for the multiplayer stuff... Bravo! That's a blast online or against bots. I frequently do that when I have 10 minutes to kill. The game has an esoteric array of weapons from the "Real World" and it's in the multiplayer mode that you really get to try them all out. It really is great fun. The maps are awesome because they're all quite different from each other and each one requires the player to make thoughtfull choices about his or her load out. In other words: a shotgun is better in one map, an SMG is better in another, and so on... Also, various types of sights will serve one better depending on the map as will other attachments. To be really effective you have to taylor your loadout. I'm not saying this is a new concept. It just seems to be implemented more elegantly in this game.
There's an additional CO OP game called "Zombies" that admittedly isn't "my cup of tea". But, what the heck? It's there. Other people might like it. It's nice that there's even more to be had in this package that I would consider to be well worth the money even without additional content.
I'm giving this game the highest rating because I think it's really enjoyable on many levels. I admit that I'm not a very "Tough Customer" when It comes to stuff like this. But, I just can't find anything I don't like about it.
once you get into the online gaming part of it the game is fun. if you own a ps3 the game still has lag problems similar to MW2, but they aren't as bad ((sometimes on MW2 it was so bad you would "lose control" of your guy and the controls were "overdramatic" (tap the joystick and you would lag to the opposite side of the map)). somedays i get a lot of dropped games (lost connection to host) and restarting the ps3 will help occasionally. if it doesn't you are stuck playing something else till the servers aren't as full. otherwise its ok, generally not as many nube tubers as MW2 had.
the single player is a b**** to beat on veteran (i was able to beat MW2 on veteran and unlocked all the trophies). this game is just hopeless as you will go through sections where hoards of enemies will just attack you (won't lie eventually gave up and beat on recruit).
fun. the only reason i actually bought this game. similar to the zombies of World at War except your characters talk which i find makes the game more hilarious and less "creepy". some people though find the voices to be annoying and i believe they can be turned down/off but unsure since i haven't tried.
* I don't know where the criticism regarding the graphics is coming from. On my TV (a 61-inch HDTV) it looks fine.
* I don't care for the maps at all. Most are too cluttered and vantage points are limited. The ability to climb on to ledges, boxes, crates, etc. seems to be greatly restricted. Sniping is a thing of the past, something that I enjoyed on MW2 maps like Wasteland, Underpass, Overgrown and Fuel. If you are a "run and gun" type player, maybe you'll find Black Ops more appealing. The Black Ops maps feel more like MW2s Trailer Park.
* I don't like the rearrangement of the weapons, particularly where the secondary weapons are concerned. In Black Ops, you are essentially limited to a pistol or a launcher; no more shotguns for secondaries.
* I am undecided regarding the idea of having to "purchase" weapons, accessories, killstreaks and equipment, especially since you have to unlock them first by achieving a higher rank. The idea of "buying" different reticles, face paint, player card emblems and the like seems silly to me.
* With regard to the killstreaks, there are some nice additions here. The napalm and mortar strikes are great additions, as are the attack dogs.
* The Campaign mode is not very compelling at all. I initially thought I would keep the game long enough to complete the campaign before reselling, but I may let it go before then. Additionally, the campaign is so full of profane language that I can't play it with my little girl in the room. Gratuitous f-bombs add nothing to the experience though I'm sure some would say it makes it more "realistic". It's unnecessary in my opinion.
* One thing that Treyarch did right was to eliminate the Tactical Insert for games like Free For All which means no more boosting. While I did get some satisfaction in hunting down boosters on MW2, it is nice to know that boosting isn't even an option in Black Ops.
All in all, the game is OK but doesn't fill the admittedly large shoes of MW2. When evaluated on its own, Black Ops is a decent shooter game. However, it is virtually impossible not to compare it to MW2. MW2 set the bar remarkably high and it will be difficult for any subsequent Call of Duty game to live up to it. For me, I'll likely be selling my copy before Christmas -- anyone want a like-new copy for $45??
