Hear the call of duty once again with this seventh entry in this blockbuster first-person shooter franchise. Call of Duty: Black Ops takes you deep behind enemy lines into the world of deniable operations as a member of an elite special forces unit engaging in covert warfare, classified operations, and explosive conflicts across the globe. With access to a variety of exclusive weaponry and equipment, your actions will tip the balance during the most dangerous time period mankind has ever known.
Top-notch as always. Voice acting expertly delivers the story that’s presented in an innovative way. Plot gets just a little bogged down towards the middle. Some design issues hurt mission direction.
Some strange texture issues pop up every now and again and some levels are more impressive than others. I enjoyed the wider array of colors than what’s in most COD games and some scripted events rock.
There’s maybe one line in the entire game that could be called cheesy. Everything else you hear is a true delight and the soundtrack fits in with the events of the game nicely. Time to crank it.
You can’t help but feel that both the single- and multiplayer could use some new life beyond just adding bigger and badder explosions (like smarter AI). Still, Call of Duty provides plenty of fun.
There’s more content than most other shooters. Customization is massive; from Create-A-Class to private matches online. Multiplayer will take you months even if the new content comes at some expense.
