Good

Fun only at First

Now don't get me wrong Black Ops is a fun game, but over time the game gets repetitive and boring. Yes, it does bring back the adored zombie mode but other than that the new money system seems pointless. Though it does get rid of most of the annoying noob tubing, there doesn't really seem anything of worth to buy except a few of your favorite weapons, attachments, and perks. So overall Blacks ops is just a boring filler until Modern Warfare 3 comes out.

Single player is ok. Not as good as MW2.

Multi-player is unplayable. Freezes, crashes, disconnects, no host migration, and to go along with that, poor support from customer service.

In the 1/2 game you do get to play before the lobby crashes, it's pretty meh anyways. Small maps that encourage camping (smallest is around Dust's size, biggest is around Junkyard's... and most are on the small side of that scale) , comparatively few weapon choices, choppy frame rate (on the PS3, I've heard it's better on 360), and being 3 bars seems to have a larger negative impact than in MW2.

I suggest renting it from GF to play the campaign and zombies! modes to check them out but stay away from the multi-player for a few more months until they get it straightened out (as of 12/14/2010).

This game is not half as good as mw2. The story is alright, but the multiplayer is nothing like mw2. The Killstreaks are sorry and there is not much replay value. But the maps are pretty good. This is not what I was expecting, treyarc just rushed it out to make some money.
