While attempting to be different, it's the same old thingKalmado | Nov. 17, 2013 | See all Kalmado's reviews »
Just as the title suggests. Add some new skins, some new maps for multi player, and a few other things and you have the year's iteration of Call Of Duty. I understand most play for multi player, but even that felt bland and boring. Also, the level of frustration peeked as on numerous times I unloaded full clips into people only to have a knife kill me instead of 20+ bullets kill them. Graphics were what you should expect. This game is nothing to buy on day 1 unless you must have the new game.

A lot of people will disagree with me... But in my opinion it is the best COD ever made. I started when the fourth was released so I have quite a long knowledge about this FPS saga which is probably the most famous one nowadays (along with his rival battlefield) The solo part is quite interresting even if it is not as good as modern warfare 1 & 2 were. However, the multiplayers maps are fantastic ! They're all great and interresting whatever your game style. Plus the zombie mod is very good and offer two great levels with a rising challenge.

The best selling ps3 franchise of all time returns at a whole new means with 3 unique game modes to test the gamer inside of all of us with draw dropping single player, skilled technical 16 player multi action and tear it up in 4 player co-op zombies. The graphics are well suited to the game type and the player interface is unique to you. You set up play!

CoD has constanstly dominated the FPS industry and continues to do so to this day however Black Ops is not that much of a stand out game. The gameplay is frantic and fast paced as usual with your character regularly taking down 100s of enemies at a time which although fun, can get boring. The graphics are also nothing to be excited about, muddy textures and poor anti aliasing make this game okay to look at but nothing like the graphical treat that other games offer up. The campaign is fairly short, although it does offer up some moments and the multiplayer is the same stuff over and over.

To me, the change from World War 2 to another regular modern shooter is whats helping ruining the call of duty franchise. Black Ops was overhauled completely in terms of setting. No more alternative Call of duty games, now you just get modern shooters which saturates things. Nothing has changed, everything feels just like Modern Warfare which is unfortunate because call of duty wasn't always this complacent. The online is what it is from call of duty, fast paced and addictive . Plenty of game modes to choose from and of course loads of customizations . You can't keep playing the same game over and over again, I wouldn't recommend it.
