COD Black Ops in so far the best shooter game for the wii that I have ever played. Me and my family were originally worried about the fact that this game is rated M, but the only bad part is campain, which none of us liked. The online is the best part. Which has no swear words. This game is great and I strongly recommend it.

IF you dont know how to play the game try single player first and it teaches you all the basics in the 1st couple minutes of gameplay. Once you get the hang of the controls try different guns (AK47 is my favorite) and you'r bound to find one your really good at. Also dont think just because the people in story mode die really quick from pistols that online ppl will die quick;they dont. When you play online you are introduced to a new world of black ops. Alll the conrtols are the same but you know can pick which guns you want to use to fight your way to the top, but you must earn these guns before you can use them. Remember to save your COD points to buy helpful perks,tacticals,letahls, and equipment. Sometimes it can be hard but when you get the hang of it you'r sure to have a blast with it. i personally think wager matches are the best. In these you gamble your money for a chance to win even more money, but to every game is a new twist that can set u back. In one in the chamber(my favorite) u only have 1 bullet and 3 lives, kills give u more bullets. Sticks and Stones basicly just make sure no one tomahawks you or you'll lose all ur hard earned points. If you want to find out he others rent it, or buy it : ) hope this helped!
I got this game by mistake, but decided to check it out anyway. I must say that I was quite impressed by parts of the experience. I have also played this game on the XBOX 360, and compared to that version the Wii still holds its own.
Not everything is here that is in the other versions, of course. Some levels are missing, the graphics are obviously of lower quality, etc. However, judged on its own, they did a decent job of bringing this title to the Wii. Wii owners should be happy with this version of the game, especially since titles like this are few and far-between on the Nintendo console. Props to Nintendo for not watering down the maturity of this title. All the foul language and gore are present in this version.
The Graphics are very nice. 9/10 Although not as nice as the other consoles, for a Wii title this game has very good graphics. Unless you've logged in countless hours on the other versions, you'll be pleased. Even if you have, you must admit the graphics are impressive for the Wii.
Sound: 9/10 The sound effects are very good and add to the experience. Good job.
Controls: 6/10 This is where things get sketchy. The reload doesn't work very well, and the control layout is not very good. I played with the Wii-Zapper, which is cool because of the 'gun,' but then the sketchy controls take away from my enjoyment. Motion controls are what separates the Wii from other consoles, so I'm not trying to play with 'classic' controls.
Replay: 7/10 This is an 'on rails' game which doesn't give you much freedom to make decisions. You beat the game, there's not much more. Unless you go online. I'm so glad they included online play, but then they don't have split-screen, which takes away a basic multiplayer element that should be there. They could have dropped the graphics for 2-player online if that would have helped. I do like that you can request ally codes (friend codes).
All in all, a decent effort and worth checking out whether this is your genre or not.
