Good game over all, nice graphics. I liked how the World at War story line was continued. Gorey, but not as bad as WaW. Some levels are completely awesome, others not so much. That one level with the vehicles are cool. There was something about the aiming that I didn't like, but can't really put my finger on what it was. Definitely a great game, but nothing ground breaking. Multiplayer is good, but I still like MW2 better for that. Then again I'm not much of a multiplayer person.
I enjoyed this game very much during the campaign. Although it frustrated me in some parts where there were just too many bullets flying around. Graphics are exceptional. Story is kinda weird but ok. However...this game stands out the most in Multiplayer. It is way more fun than MW2. That was pretty much the main reason i bought this game when it came out. This game is totally worth a buy.

Well I just wanted to let ya know before you read on in this review of Black Ops, that I did very much, and still do enjoy play MW2 also. I don't mind the campers or the snipers picking me off in the mulitplayer mode. In my opionion its all about having fun. Everyone is going to have thier bad matches and everyone will have a good match. I am also not a kid, I am 34 years old, married with three kids myself so the people who read reviews about gamers complaining alot about the COD franchise might have to consider that thier age comes into factor. Thats why I am going to give my honest opionion about how I feel about COD Black Ops.
First off I want to point out on the gamers here saying the graphics are not up to par. To me the graphics are just fine. I play on a 70" HDTV with Bose surround sound and the game feels and looks great. So overall I see nothing wrong graphic wise about this game.
Ok, first I will talk about the Campaign Mode. I have to admit the story was different from the previous COD games, which was good. The Campaign Mode was good but I did enjoy the MW and MW 2 story alot better. Also, the campaign itself was short. I would say give or take its about 5-6 hours long.
The Multiplayer is fantastic. It feels alot more balanced and the customizing your soldier makes it feel that its "you" in the battle field. The currency and contract also add a more compelling feel and will make it more addicting to play. Overall on multiplayer, I like it better than MW2 and like I said the balance of perks and weopons make it much more fun to play.
Zombie mode is also back. I always liked killing a few hours of my time playing this mode in WaW, but I do have to say its alot more challenging. The two maps have alot of room to run around and avoid the zombies while you can board up windows, grab some ammo or even find a place to make a stand on the incoming hoards of the undead. Overall, very fun and even better if you got friends on your side.
