So let's look at how this plays out on the DS. You have two options to choose from for button layout: 1.) you use the stylus to sweep around on the lower screen for looking around. This is very responsive and just a quick swipe and your view angle turns on-screen. The D-pad (left buttons) are used then for moving, and the left shoulder button for aiming and the right shoulder button for shooting. As mentioned in another review, this can become tricky as you are holding the stylus in your hand, and then still need to shoot with the right-shoulder button. Well, practice makes perfect, and you get the feel for this after a while, so not too much complaints there. What did become a problem for me is that I started feeling like throwing up after a while. The movements of the stylus is so quick that it feels by times the world is spinning. I guess this differs from player to player, so don't let this influence your decision. From what I gather, most people loved the stylus option. I opted for button layout: 2) No stylus and you use the buttons on the right for movement. However, this again put me right back in the problem with the PSP controls that it feels clunky.Read more ›
Controls are remarkably sharp, the stylus is used to look around while you use the d-pad to move forward or backwards etc. The left shoulder button fires, so naturally if you hold your DS you can see how it works. No odd finger stretching required! Weapons are selected by tapping icons on the touch screen and environmental moves such as crouching are also implemented in this way. The game itself is graphically decent for the DS, altough incomparable of course to its home console big brother. The AI of team mates in the game works well enough, the main game is short but certainly worth another play through with unlockables available. The zombie mode is included if a little drab.
The game took me back to the PS1 'Medal of Honor' games, similar looks but the missions here are more interesting and the control system is surprisingly responsive. A read around the big review sites like IGN, Gamespot etc will also find similar praise for what is the most respnsive handheld FPS to date. The limitations are obvious in comparisan to the big consoles, but for handheld gamers, Black Ops offers a real surprise and shows that an unthinkable and often atrocious handheld genre can actually be implemented in style.
The max is 6 players which is great but the variety of options are the games strong points. You get perks, lot's of weapons with multiple attachments and "Titles" which is like a name tag. This is a milestone for n-Space and is great for any FPS enthusiasts on the go. The graphics are still not on par with Metroid Prime: Hunters but this is still a great game. The campaign though a bit short was very enjoyable indeed.
