3.0 out of 5 stars Black Ops is a Movie, 11 Nov. 2010
Since the COD4 came out, I was in love with all of the COD series. World at War was fantastic, Modern Warfare 2 was the best game I had played in years on my 360 and then, Black Ops. Hmmmm......I had to buy it because of all the hype that was built up. A success??? Debatable.
Modern Warfare 2 had a very short singleplayer campaign and so with Black Ops, they have achieved a lengthly campaign with more interactive things to do and more slow motion, which I thought was great. However, MW2 had missions that felt so....so....real. Black Ops was more like a movie. The graphics in the missions were debatable between the 2 games but I do think MW2 has an edge in the visual department.
Black Ops multiplayer is awesome. The maps are refreshing and new and I was so pleased that they brought back the Skorpion from COD4. It does however get boring, just as MW2 did. The COD Points system is pure genius but the killstreaks? A joke. They didn't have remote control cars during the Vietnam War!!! The helicopters are overpowered and give you no chance of survival and the care packages take ages to deliver.

Singleplayer 7/10
Multiplayer 7/10
Graphics 7/10 (Tempted to put a 6)
Realism. 5/10

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Multiplayer...but a dodgy Singleplayer, 2 Nov. 2010
Okay, first thing first. This game was never going to be as good as COD4 or CODMW2. Now thats out of the way, I can say that BC2 is a decent game.....the multiplayer is great but there are no classes and you cannot customize your guns which is very frustrating!!!

As you progress through the ranks, everything is unlocked at rank 22 out of 50!!! C'mon guys......28 levels without getting anything new?? Whats the motivation to keep playing?? Great fun until rank 22 though...

Singleplayer is a joke. You know when somethings going 2 happen such as an ambush because the people in your squad say things like "OMG I hope there isnt an AMBUSH!!!!!" Then.....BAM! So predictable in many ways.

I would say to Battlefield fans buy this game, but, it just doesn't reach the heights of the COD series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Call Of Duty 5, 7 Dec. 2008
Before I start. My name is not barrie, this is my mums acount. Anyways

I don't know why everyone says that "Oh, CoD doesnt work on my PC" because it works absoloutely fine on mine. With incredible graphics and newer weapons than CoD 1,2 and 3 It surely is great. I bought this game in Singapore and I live in Indonesia which is prone to piracy and faulty PCs. It works fantasticaly well. Some people are in England writing reviews and saying that it doesnt work. This is odd but it doesnt affect me. I think this game is a must buy. There is only one problem. I think there should have been more missions. 15 is not enough. My PS2 games have about 25. But the good thing is, when you complete the game you can do a zombie mission which RULEZ.

Thanks Activision!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good PPV, 23 Dec. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: WWE - Vengeance 2007 [DVD] (DVD)

1. Cruiserweight Championship Match
Chavo Guerrero vs Jimmy Wang Yang

6/10 It was a fair match but I don't really like cruiserweights and I especially don't like Chavo. He is so......whatever. I really wanted Jimmy to win this one and become the new champ, but it wasn't to be.

2. Intercontinental Championship Match
Santino Marella vs Umaga

1/10 This match went on for about 30 seconds. Umaga is the craziest wrestler ever. He gets himself DQed by a five count for corner post punches...worst match of the night.

3. World Tag Team Championship Match
Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch vs Lance Cade

7.5/10 Great match. Lots of classy wrestling and a good performance by all 4 superstars. Lance Cade was playing a goody goody 2 shoes to the ref though. Great ending as Lance Cade grabbed the victory of a well deserved fight.

4. United States Championship Match
MVP vs Ric Flair

3/10 I never really liked Ric Flair and this is why. Terrible match and MVP still a show-off.

5. WWE Tag Team Championship Match
Deuce and Domino vs "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka and Sgt. Slaughter

2/10 Deuce and Domino were awful as always. It was good to see some REAL superstars in the ring like Jimmy Snuka and Sgt. Slaughter but overall the second worst of the night.

6. WWE Womens Championship Match
Melina vs Candice Michelle

5/10 Candice was as on fire as ever and Melina finally losing her title. Melina is the worst Womens Champ ever. Ending was a little poor. Winning by a dropkick. It shows that women are nowhere as good as men.

7. Match to determine the ECW World Champion
Johnny Nitro vs CM Punk

8/10 Usually I think ECW is the worst brand out of all but this match proved me wrong. Brilliant wrestling by Nitro and a good finish with Nitro's neckbreaker coming into play. Good match.

8. Last Chance World Heavyweight Championship Match
Edge vs Batista

8.5/10 Edge is the smartest wrestler ever to step inside that ring. The belt cannot change over a DQ. So what did edge do? Got himself DQed using a low blow. HAHAHAHAHA. Better luck next time Batista. Or maybe there won't be.

9. WWE Championship Challenge
John Cena vs Bobby Lashley vs Mick Foley vs Randy Orton vs King Booker

8/10 A good 20 minute match but Cena always wins. AS USUAL. Bobby Lashley getting FUed through the comeentary table was awesome. But Cena FUed the Hardcore legend to get the 1, 2, 3.

Overall a great event. Buy it for collection!

2.0 out of 5 stars Could of been better?, 27 Nov. 2007
OMG! Pretty Awful if you ask me! Survivor Series always has the potential to be a classic Pay-Per-View. 2006. No.
Matches: (NOT IN ORDER)

Survivor Series elimination match 3/10
Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Ron Simmons and Sgt. Slaughter vs The Spirit Squad.
Awful start. Awful ending as Ric Flair eliminates 3 SS members by cheating.

Survivor Series elimination match 7/10
DX, The Hardyz and CM Punk vs Rated RKO, Johnny Nitro, Mike Knox and Gregory Helms
Pretty good match. The best of the night. Ended up being a 5 vs 1 match but there were lots of finishing moves like Sweet Chin Music and Anaconda Vice.

Survivor Series elimination match 6/10
John Cena, Kane, Sabu, Bobby Lashley and RVD vs Big Show, Test, MVP, Finlay and Umaga.
Average match. It sucked having Umaga being eliminated by DQ only seconds into the match. If he had stayed, a win for Big Show's team was 100%. BUT NO! Cena always has to win right? It was cool that Cena F.U.ed Big Show though.

United States Championship Match 3/10
Chris Benoit vs Chavo Guerrero
Lousy and boring. Benoit not on form aswell as Chavo. Benoit makes Chavo tap. BORING! Advice to skip!

Women's Championship Match 3/10
Lita vs Mickie James
YAWN! Need to say anymore?

First Blood Match 6/10
Undertaker vs Mr. Kennedy.
Pretty good match although there wasn't that many proper wrestling moves. Just lame old punches. And then MVP came in and won it for Kennedy by hitting Undertaker with a chair?

World Heavyweight Championship Match 6/10
King Booker w/ Sharmell vs Batista
OK Match. It was cool how it's Batista's last chance though.

Overall a disapointment for lots of WWE fans worldwide.
