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.
Call of Duty dives into the secret world of the Cold War
|Call in deadly attack choppers in Vietnam|
|Attack a Soviet outpost in the frozen Ural mountains|
|Use new weapons such as a Dragon's Breath shotgun|
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. Luckily this includes air support such as the SR-71 Blackbird stealth plane, as well as deadly attack helicopters and armoured personnel carriers.
Like any Call of Duty game the multiplayer will set the standard for all other console games, with enhanced customisation tools, playable vehicles and a revamped scoring system.
- Retro Warfare: Call of Duty explodes the myths of the Cold War as you join a team of Black Ops soldiers caught up in the fight against communism in Vietnam and beyond.
- Ammu-Nation: Use new special ammo including an explosive crossbow, Dragon's Breath flame rounds for your shotgun and a range of other period weapons.
- Twisted Metal: Take the controls of the iconic SR-71 Blackbird as you direct operations from high above or jump into an attack chopper in Vietnam for some close-up action.
- Online Perks: Create-a-Class 2.0 customisation tool lets you personalise your online battles even more, with new perks and revamped rules for killstreaks.

- The amazing gameplay and solid storyline that you'd expect from call of duty now days, the moments where you do more than just shoot everything in sight and are left thinking "woahh!". This game retains plenty of those moments and executes them very well. The storyline itself in this game is a great conspiracy thriller that will surprise you, maybe one of the best COD storylines to date.
- The customizations and extra features that are now here, killstreaks, limited character customization, equipment, emblem and playercard, lens and sight, neat new weapons and attachments (some old) the list continues. [You'll love the remote controlled RC bomb] And another new item that is great is the camera spike, it's amazing how helpful they can be.
The level design is wonderful and never gets old due the the diversity of the game (time periods and locations) Kowloon was brilliant and i hope it makes it as multiplayer DLC. Most of the multiplayer maps are great fun to play on, from a jungle to a snowy mountain top. (launch & nuketown also spring to mind, on launch i've seen people standing there staring at the rocket take off while bullets fly past them, and on nuketown at the end of the match, boooooom. The multiplayer levels are now more interactive than before, in small or big ways.)
- There are more vehicle moments in the game like a motorbike for instance or the chopper gunner you've no doubt seen, there's alot more i'm sure you'll enjoy, it all adds variety.Read more ›
It reminds me of Goldeneye on the N64 in that the graphics weren't there but the gameplay was
A better way to think of it is it's not an advancement on Modern Warfare 2 it's an advencement on World at War
As you probably know there are 2 game developers for the Call of Duty series and they seem to take turns in releasing a game each year this one is made by the same people as World at War
Whereas MW2 feels quick and polished BO feels a little slower
I am a big fan of the COD series and really enjoy BO but beware of building this game up too much as other reviewers have stated the hit area is a little off (Something that could be patched i guess) and the graphics are no way near MW2 but the gameplay is there
It also has huge customisation ability and the newly introduced COD points make getting the attachments required for the LIVE games much better
Overall a great game but don't get carried away with the praise :)
Next its completely unrealistic. The first call of duty's at least tried to show some kind of respect to the subject matter and to make you realise war was not fun, but gritty and realistic. You played out the story because you cared. Now its a Jerry Bruckheimer movie with lots of bangs and loud noises and pretty effects to make you go "oooooooh". Life is cheap and its just a load of jerky camera movements, swearing by the bucket load and lots of blood for the under 18's who shouldnt even be playing it! Its just shallow for those of us who are actually grown ups. This is a tarantino movie by comparison to say Saving Private Ryan or Apocalypse Now where you actually respect the subject matter!
Lastly this is the first game in years where Ive wanted to throw up. Not because of the childish content but because of the OTT visually jarring effects in cut scenes and jerky movements. Its like the game was made for people with really short attention spans. The graphics also seem to be a mash between current gen and PS2 quality. This is supposed to be the definitive version but I have seen far better graphics and maps in other games.Read more ›
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.
