Call of Duty: Black Ops


Brandon, one of my followers, requested that I shared my some of my thoughts on the new game in the Call of Duty franchise, so here we go.

I have played the Call of Duty games, since the very first came out and I have always been a big fan of the series. Well, I hated Treyarch because they didn’t release Call of Duty 3 for the PC.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was a genius game and I have spent A LOT of hours playing that game. Call of Duty: World at War was also a great game, though I haven’t played it a lot. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 really disappointed me. Mostly because there aren’t any dedicated servers, which is a MUST for a PC game and it resulted in a lot of cheaters etc. 

ANYWAYS, Call of Duty: Black Ops is almost just the same as before. A few new things are added like the “Gungame” mode in multiplayer and bots. But it is not enough to make me impressed. The single player campaign is kind a like the other games single player campaigns. Zombie mode is almost the same as in World at War. Multiplayer is almost the same as Modern Warfare 2, except you now have to buy your upgrades and a few extra multiplayer modes. 

So in general, Call of Duty: Black Ops is just a mix of what you can find in the other CoD games. It is not a bad game, but I did expect more. 

The CoD series have turned into a money machine for the developers and know they just want to get as much as possible. The developers don’t have the time necessary to make a great game, which can be proved if we look at the bugs in the game. There are A LOT of bugs and I am desperately waiting for patches.

Conclusion: If you like the other CoD games, then you will most likely like this game also, though it is basically mix of what you can find in the other CoD games. The bugs will hopefully be fixed soon!

RatsRunThisTown said...

So many bugs! Especially the spawning in instant death bug!

I might wait a bit before I invest

Milhouse said...

Cool post but I don't like CoD. I only like HoN!

Center50 said...

Yeah pretty much the same way I feel about it, I'm gonna wait to pick it up. Pretty sure my girlfriend got it for me for Xmas, seems like a good amount of time to have the kinks worked out

Brandon said...

WoW_Updates: Yea, I also like the campaign. It just doesn't provide something new. Well, except a crossbow.

Come At Me Bro said...

Great games!

Gansita said...

Call Duty 3 is not a good game, though, lol. Well it's good because you feel like you are there, but the CoNs are: 1. you can pass that game in less than one day. 2. I don't like in-camera, I mean, I don't like it shows the full camera when you're walking, I like to see the player full body. Black Ops seems good, and after reading your review I'm thinking seriously in buying it (if there are some available, of course, lol)

OC-STEVEN said...

they shoulda released a beta like moh did to let us report the bugs before its official release

T.dot said...

i dont like it

JRam said...

That is exactly what I thought... Black Ops look nearly identical to MW2. Its nothing more than a cash cow that takes players from previous versions of CoD.

Lemmiwinks said...

Cool story, bro!
Following your blog

Brosephus said...

The original modern warfare was awesome! the second one sucked. Black ops is okay, I guess.

Crammarc said...

Astra said...

Archi said...

Milhouse said...

I don't really like the game, but we all have different opinions. Enjoy!

Of monstrous lust the due and just reward: Following!

David Davidson said...

Yeah, I think COD4 was the peak of the series and everything afterwards was meh.

I've heard a lot of bad things about Black Ops, I don't plan on getting it.

Joebloggs said...

OK, I'm not a normal gamer really
meaning I don't play online or even have it set up
because frankly I'm not great at the games and find it to intimidating and competitive
anyways, I generally love games which have multiplayer co-op campaigns
Because it means less arguing over who gets to play
any games yo ucan reccommend? apart from Rainbow Six Vegas 2
Gears of War
Halo

Joebloggs: I don't play console games. But a coop game I really enjoy playing is Left 4 Dead. Don't know if you will like it, but check it out.
