Black was the color of my mood after playing this mediocre first person shooter. I mean, take away the graphical fluff and the content is lacking. Check points and areas to save are few and far between compared to almost all genres nowadays, given our fast paced lifestyles where we want to pick up and play for a bit and move on to something else. The selection of weapons is small and you can’t really customize them like most shooter fans are becoming accustomed to. The storyline is intriguing, pulling ideas from almost any thriller/spy movie you can think of, but just as it pulls you in, it fails to keep you in the loop and leaves you confused by the end. Black is an average first person shooter with a few new tricks up its sleeve but not enough to keep me coming back for more. It’s worth a try but probably not a keeper.

had some cool guns and the aiming reticle was pretty acurrate. most of my shots must have bounced off thier helmets cause i was shooting all the fools in the face i swear. i liked the gameplay. but the story, cutscenes and ending were the worst ever. luckily once you unlock hard you can skip all that bogus junk and get to the mission. its pretty hard but the people come out in the same places so its easy to plan new strategies. once you get black ops opened up you can play all the missions with a mi6 with attached grenade launcher both with unlimited ammo and they have you go through all the missions again not missing any secondary objectives. thats when i sent this back. definatley worth getting if youve already played both the good games that have come out these past few years.
