Call of Duty tackles a whole new era as Black Ops plunges you into the murky height of the Cold War and history's most secretive battles. The world's most popular first person shooter places you in the most dangerous conflict zones of the late '60s.

From the jungles of Vietnam to the snowy wastes of the Ural mountains, you and your team must operate behind enemy lines and using only the limited technology of the time.

Gameplay & Storyline:
It's been said that Black-Ops lacks originality. Okay, maybe in some ways yes, but in others I think they've added a few variations here & there. During the campaign missions it's not just full on warzone as one minute your in Cuba on an assasination mission, next your trying to escape a Russian gulag & then trying to take a hill in Vietnam. The Campaign is driven by a pretty good storyline - (if maybe a little convoluted here & there) - where your character Alex Mason is being forced to relive memories about top secret missions during an elaborate interogation, trying to uncover the truth about these mysterious numbers stuck in Mason's head. The guns and the environments are all unique to the time period & help create that: "Cuban Missile Crisis" era perfectly.Read more ›
After the success of the 2 Modern Warfare games and World At War, Treyarch announced that a new title focusing on Black Op missions in the Cold War would be released much to mixed opinions. Fortunately, Black Ops delivers.
The new setting is a welcome change from the same old same old and on the whole the game captures the setting perfectly with a wide range of story missions ranging from the Vietnam jungles to barren wastelands in the space race. Each setting is unique with different weapons and tactics ranging from stealth to all out attack which helps to make the different levels feel fresh and exciting.
The story follows Alex Mason, a special forces operative as he relives his memories whilst being interrogated by unknown men. Without ruining the story too much, anyone familiar with World At War will recognise Victor Reznov who makes a return in this game. The story isn't anything special and after the first play-through its very unlikely you will want to run through it again except to grab the trophies you missed first time around. This is a shame as with such a unique and different setting its frustrating that Treyarch didn't produce a more memorable story and a better plotline. Victor Reznov is the only real star here and that's due to the fact that fans will remember him from a previous instalment of Call Of Duty.Read more ›
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!!
