This game I got on Tuesday, I haven't stopped playing yet, the graphics are surreal, the fx (Sounds) are great, the game play is fantastic, the game is the best cod in my opinion ever, the guns are really good, it is a 9.5/10 from me and a perfect buy/rent, possible the best game of the year! I hope you like it as much as I do.
Black ops isn't Modern Warfare 2. So dont play it like MW2. Dont grab a sniper rifle and try to quickscoop. Dont throw on a rushing perk and run around knifing, and dont think you are going to camp get 4 kills and run a killstreak to a chopper gunner for 20 plus kills.
Think of Black Ops as its own game. Take it slow Find cover play smart
Perk system is different what was good/sucked may not be that way now. So play around with it, also Keep in mind since the game is new dont think you will get on a random team with 5 other random gamers and you will win every match.
Now let me give my opinion on the game. Solo is fun. I enjoyed the story i felt it stayed exciting thru out. Not like the normal pattern of shoot run shoot then kick a door. I know thats how every FPS is but oddly it just didnt feel like that. Play it and maybe you can explain it to me.
Zombies is awsome to play with my friends while we have a few beers You can play online with random folks like multiplayer is thru lobbies but to me just didnt feel as fun. Zombies takes some communication and team work to fully enjoy.There are new zombies, new maps, new guns. The higher waves feel more intense. But honest the bonus level when u finish the solo game makes the zombie game awsome. JFK FTW
The Menu system games. Let me explain the menu system is you tied in a chair in a creepy lab with this almost jigsaw type voice talking. IF you push left tigger then right tigger a few time u break free there is a computer u can put in commands "Doa" "Zork" and a few others. open two other games "doa" is a "I made a game with zombies in it" type game awsome game "Zork" is a old old school text based game.
Multiplayer i would need 1000 more chars to break it down. So ill just say Awsome in its own way.
Flaws not a game for snipers they are broken. the party system broken. and ninja perk broken. But will be patched they want to find the balance before they fix.
I great game with completely stunning campaign. I couldnt walk away after I started it. Graphics are so amazing cut scenes everything is epic.
Multi-player this is why I got the game. Im disappointed in multi player lots of bugs with connectivity and spawning (you can spawn right on top of opponents even on TDM). Controls hard to get used to aiming just seems to be off. maybe thats cause i spent so much time playing modding warfare. These types of issues will be fixed with first update cause thats how activision rolls. Again amazing graphics. Awesome kill streaks, love the cod currency however it isnt easy to come by.
Zombies. OMG this is the best part of the game i bought game for multi player competition but this is what sold it. Levels are amazing. More types of zombies and YES! they're still nazis. KILL 'EM ALL!!!!!!!!!
All in all there is really only small minor things wrong they will be fixed soon im sure so then you will be looking at a 10 out of 10 game.
