Pros They brought back zombies. Campaign was original in that it included the Cold War. The on-line kill streaks are cool too.
Cons It's just more of the same. It's not radically different enough from Modern Warfare 2. Even the on-line gaming isn't that much better. The weapons are mostly the same along with the kill streaks.
Zombies get old fast too.
Summary If you have Modern Warfare 2 you have little to gain from buying Black Ops. It's worth renting (twice).
But all in all it's just not enough. It'll be all too familiar and the game has just gotten old to me and I've had it for less than a month. In fact I'm wondering if I can get a refund.
If you have Modern Warfare 2 , rent Black Ops before buying it. It's better but not by much.
Pros i like the fact that 'combat training' is quicker to load from session to session and is fair to all level of players. There are some cool cheats
Cons Too many interuptions with the online play (disconnects), when a game loads if one person leaves that lobby/game the intermission starts all over again. Respawning is insconsistant. Not fun getting killed 30 times/gm. you HAVE to be good.
Summary The games' OK, like i said, online play, you must be quick to respond to an enemy or sianara. So when your learning and trying to gain those credits to build up your arsenal of weapons, it makes for a frustrating time. That is why in 'combat training' there are levels from 'recruit' to 'veteran' therefore helping to bring more oppurtunity for a level playing field. Why there are some problems with interuptions/disconnects I don't know, it's the only game I own that does it. The different scenes and places of battle are cool, the points/credits theme is new, and gives alot of diversity to create your 'player card' to your personal character. I like the game a bit more than I'm frustrated with it, because I don't always have the time to play, so it's hard to become as good as others online. So overall, if your thinking of buying the game to play now and then, than get it and explore the online play, the campaign itself is too simple and not engaging, killing zombie's is always fun, .....hint, try to get out of the chair before selecting any mode, there is a computer you can use to type in some cheats.
"AMAZING GAME"on by ps3gamer425
Pros JUST LIKE REAL ARMY LIFE
Cons A LITTLE TO MANY CLIPS
Pros I can get a refund from the store that I bought it from
Cons Way too many movie clips and way too much talk
Did I mention too many movie clips ?
Summary This game is a major disappointment. Apart from the fact that I finished it in an afternoon (most games are the same these days) the enemies are plain dumb and just stand there waiting to get shot. The segments of the game are too short, too disjointed and interrupted too often by those damn film clips. I really don't care about the "storyline" I just want to play the game, not listen to endless boring crap that masquerades as background to the story.Apparently one commentator thinks that this is a multiplayer game first and a campaign game second. I must have missed that on the labelling. It would probably come as a surprise to them to know that many people don't play online, or with others. None of this excuses what a poor game this is.
