Call of Duty: Black Ops has to be the best FPS (first person shooter) so far. Each mode is exciting in its own way. When I first got it on 11/09/10, I felt like only playing it and not doing anything else.
It makes you feel like you are really in a war. The story is so fluid and lifelike. It is not boring like MW2. There is one thing I must tell you about the experience, there is so much action going on that you would feel a little overwhelmed. Each mission has something to do with the last recent mission. In the campaign, You get to do more than just ride in a car, you get to DRIVE the car! You also get to operate in variations of helicopters also!
Multiplayer (online gameplay)
Do you know how on MW2 online, nothing is interactive. Well on CoD Black Ops, you can find a few interactive panels. The killstreaks are so much better also. On MW2 Everybody hates when you get 3 kills in a row on MW2, you hear a voice that repeats '' You UAV is online" over and over again. Well on Black Ops, you will never hear UAV ever again. The currency will fill your heart with joy too. Now you can buy what you want.
This mode is like an arcade version of Resident Evil. You must defeat zombies in waves. I will be completely honest, I don't think zombie mode is the best mode on the game, but it is good for when 4 people want to play.
multi: its awsome now you can spitscreen online :) you can see people easier not as much recoil in the guns either. i dont like the sounds of the gun the gunfire didn't seen as real as mw2 did. ( i own a couple myself so i know)
campagn: havent gotten too far but the story has really caught me the gameplay is just like mw2 witch is good i didn't thing they need to improve much there.
Game has good campaign mode and online play is better than MW2. Less lag and kill streaks aren't so devastating that people will cheat to get them...i.e hiding in rocks, floating in the air. quick scope is gone as well. Graphics are a lil sub par to MW2 though.
