While Call of Duty: Black Ops isn't anything especially different from the classic Call of Duty experience that you have grown accustom to, it is definitely a extremely good version of it. The smooth gun-play combined with the fast pace gameplay provides for some easy entertainment. Whether you are simply after a easy to play, one or two games to pass time or if you want to go on a tear for hours, you can have a lot of fun with this game. Add in the zombie experience which is another level of fun and you have a great game for any FPS fan.

I think the Black ops series has the best Single player campaign, I loved every moment of it and the easter eggs, too. The multiplayer game is the same as it always was in Call of Duty franchise with some extras (customization for example) but Treyarch's Call of duty famous about his Zombie mode which is I think become even better than it was in World at War.
Still the best COD IMOs_blackheart | Sept. 19, 2015 | See all s_blackheart's reviews »
--This original Black Ops... I enjoyed a lot. Over a couple hundred hours in multiplayer and I reloaded the solo to enjoy the campaign again, but this time I went in Veteran mode. Lots and lots of bullets. Many deaths. Many nerd rages and colorful use of the vulgar language. (solo play consists of going through your memory of the past and re-living those events via torture) Zombie mode... I don't want to spoil it but you can wiki it if you really want to know. --Sept 19, 2015. Multiplayer as of recent, I am unable to find an official server with a wide range of map rotation. All seem to be private servers with quirky rules (crouch only, camping only if you can see objective, no snipers, no grenade launchers, etc...) The people on these servers are picky and will not tolerate these out of game rules they have set up. If you want to play multiplayer your way, consider how much a server will cost.

The Singleplayer is good but it have the same problem, its too easy and the timeplay is poor, the multiplayer keeps the essence of the COD series with a fast-moving gameplay, but no one cares because all the players go first for zombie mode so the multiplayer was opaqued by the zombie mode, but is a really good FPS, enjoy it and enjoy the ZOMBIES! :)
I prefer Infinity Ward's CoD over Treyarchmugaro | Dec. 22, 2013 | See all mugaro's reviews »
The single player campaign was the best part of the game. I didn't really care for Zombie mode, Spec Ops in MW2 & MW3 were much better IMO. Zombie mode is like a really weird L4D mode, the guns are ok but you have to buy ammo, buy guns, etc and the waves are endless so there really isn't time to look around or shop. Multiplayer is the big draw of any CoD game, but I think the MW series did multiplayer better. The "perks" really ruined any kind of competitive aspect. In other words, if you start playing and you're level 1, you're going to have a hard time fighting a guy who's lv50 with ultra super customized machine guns that you can't get unless you grind & level up. The single player campaign had an entertaining story that had a rather predictable plot twist toward the end. Treyarch's CoD gameplay is much harder than IW's MW series, Black Ops & World at War single player is grenade spam & infinite respawning enemies on veteran, it's not really skilled it's just frustrating. I can't ever see this or any other CoD game going to a reasonable price that I could recommend, let's all thank Activision for that. Take that for what you will.
