Thank you, Gamefly for preventing me from shelling out fifty bucks on this pile of junk.
I'll start by saying that this game is not completely without good qualities. The visuals aren't terrible and it does feel/play like a COD title. They also got some voice work done by the same actors as the other Black Ops games so there is some continuity.
Where the game falls down is the campaign structure. The levels are timed missions that are loosely related to one another. Did I mention there's almost NO checkpoints? Consequently, the game is essentially a collection of frustrating mini-games.
Throw in the atrocious AI and you've got a big time disappointment. Black Ops is a title that should have been a major system seller for the Vita. Instead, it will probably wind up preventing some people from buying the system. Sony deserves better, Activision.. And so do your customers.
I felt this game was just fine, it ain't going to be the Vita shooter everyone is hoping for, but it's a fine good effort made by Actvision. Plus those critics are just jerks to this game as this game is very good in its alright. The Vita touchscreen is clunky at first, but useful once you get the hang of it. The graphics are good for a Vita game, but it ain't a Uncharted beater, as they have the best graphics. The levels are decent, the multiplayer works (if you can find a playable game as I had problems connecting to a good game) and is very fun, and overall I thought it was a decent game, it's not the best shooter out there, but at least they tried, and for that... they should be commended.
