'Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified' is tailor-made for the Vita, says Nihilistic

Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified is not meant to act as a port of previous Call of Duty games, but is an experience specifically targeted for the PlayStation Vita, Nihilistic Software CEO Robert Huebner told One of Swords.

According to Huebner, Declassified isn't trying to center on a big campaign storyline or major cinematics. (Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, Nihilistic Software, PS Vita)

Looks good!
Vitalogy  +   1141d ago
Does it really?

I agree with Yodagamer because from what I've seen so far it doesn't look that good.

WipEout 2048 was "tailor-made" for the Vita aswell, except wipeout looks excellent and cod looks like a ps1 game, how about that.
Cam977  +   1141d ago
The graphics have improved.
profgerbik  +   1141d ago
PS1 really? PS1 couldn't handle anything this game puts out.

You may not like the game that is completely fine but that is harsh.

I am not by any means bragging about this game but PS1 is just a stupid comparison.

And I thought that for a good listener half word was enough...

@profgerbik What I meant to say, and if you read closely that last paragraph, was that in comparison with wipeout 2048 the cod game is like a ps1 game, and wipeout 2048 is also a game made for the vita. I wasn't comparing it to a ps1 game but to a ps vita game (wipeout 2048).

@Cam977 Have they really!? You are saying that bases on what, a low res picture that someone posted and came out as news in n4g? That image shows nothing improved to be honest.

So keep on disagreeing with facts. I wish the game was good as I own a Vita and I'm lacking good games for it, games like wipeout I say with great visuals and gameplay.

I know many people are concerned about the online MP number count.

Personally while I think it is small, I do believe that it is probably for the best for now. I mean, imagine having 8v8 but the game does not sell well enough for large number of games to happen at that player count?

However, I do think they could counter this with co-op options, which si what I think they should be looking into.

I personally do not think that this COD is looking to be overly amazing, but I can understand why they may have taken certain liberties. I will definitely pick this up some time (I only game on my PSV when going to and from work) so I do hope that it ends up being a fun game.
profgerbik  +   1141d ago
People will buy it and there will be people playing online.

People still play Resistance Burning Skies online.. I am certain people would want to be playing this on their Vita's rather than Resistance.

Especially since Nihilistic has been getting slammed constantly, just maybe they are paying attention to every ones concerns.. I don't know.

Personally for me CoD has not lived up to it's name in years. So seeing this is not shocking, if anything it reminds me of older CoD's.

This seriously cannot be worse than Resitance multiplayer so with that in mind there should be people online and playing it.

I'm going to buy it. I love FPSs and how many twin stick on the go FPSs do I have to choose from? If it sells well, maybe a competing franchise like MOH or BF will get some funding and they'll contract it out to a more accomplished dev. I'm hoping these guys do as good a job as they can and make it fun to play.

Anyway, this'll just have to tide me over for portable FPS action until the KZ title comes out. <shrug> If you haters want to name another, better, FPS I should pick up for my Vita instead of this, I'm all ears.
Yodagamer  +   1141d ago
They can talk it up all they want, i'd recommend waiting for the reviews on this one.
profgerbik  +   1141d ago
Exactly what I plan to do.
GraveLord  +   1141d ago
Relying on reviews to decided whether or not to buy a game? No offense, but that is the worst thing you could do. Do you know that most publishers pay off websites to give good reviews?

What you should do is wait for a demo, or just watch some gameplay videos on Youtube. Make up your own mind. Don't let others decide it for you.
Yodagamer  +   1141d ago
Well i do that too, i usually watch a bunch of youtube review/ gameplays/ and online reviews before i buy a game, i absolutely hate buying a game not knowing if it will be good or not.
rpd123  +   1141d ago
Yeah, best to know what you're getting into. I prefer demos, they let you know right away if you'd like the full game.
tiffac008  +   1141d ago
Demos would be best bro. That way you can judge by yourself and not get swayed by other peoples "opinions", which is what reviews are.

As for the article, I have Resistance: Burning Skies and although I enjoyed it, the game needed a lot of polish (and I mean a lot) and with the development time they are putting into COD: Declassified. I'm worried about the quality of the game.

Nihilistic may not be one of the top devs out there but I always believe that even a mid-tier dev team can do a lot to develop a game with time on their hands. So I am a bit skeptical but hopeful they can pull it off.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified is currently scheduled for a Vita-exclusive release date of November 13—the same day that Black Ops 2 releases...

Not so sure this would be a wise day to release this game.What are the fans of this series gonna buy first the ps3 and xbox version or the vita....i think the vita version will be lost in the shuffle....
forestfrog  +   1141d ago
Hey, its the best portable ever, and this is the best portable cod ever!
rpd123  +   1141d ago
I think it will be. The fact that it has two joysticks is enough to make it better than the PSP and DS CoD games.
Cam977  +   1141d ago
In regards to the PSP COD game, you get it free with COD:BO:D; also, because it is played on Vita you can use both thumbsticks.
rpd123  +   1141d ago
@ Cam977

I had no idea you get it free with Declassified that's pretty cool. I really liked it on PSP, it'll be even better with both thumbsticks.
CaptCalvin  +   1141d ago
A shame that "the best" has to be this.
Kingthrash360  +   1141d ago
Agreed. 2 points for that comment
jetpacksheep  +   1141d ago
Please increase Vita sales, the gamers need it.

"Black Ops Declassified is tailor made for the Vita"
I'd sure hope so! lol
Lubu  +   1141d ago
I'm really on the fence for this one. Give me demo to help persuade me. Then again, a demo could have the opposite effect.
Kingthrash360  +   1141d ago
Buy it or don't, complaining but still planning to buy is just dumb. People trying to convince others not to like a game no one has played is just as dumb. It's cod its gunna sell regardless so all these complaints are pointless.
Sanquine90  +   1141d ago
After playing resistance burning skies i am going to buy this game. The mechanics or shooting controls are wonderful on Resistance BS. The graphics on the otherhand are ugly as ****
MasterCornholio  +   1141d ago
Like how Resistance Burning Skies was tailor made for the Vita................

More like it was tailor made two sizes under, the Vita can handle more than that abomination Nihilistic made.

I know I keep bagging on the game, but it feels like I was slapped right on the face when I got that game, and the mark still shows to this day... I just need to buy Killzone Mercenary to get the mark off for good.

Releasing this the same day as BO2 is a huge mistake though. A good strategy would be to release it at least a couple weeks prior to BO2, because the hype machine for BO2 could work wonders. People who are not following these things closely, but likes COD may see it and go "Whoa! COD Black Ops? On a handheld?!" Boom, sparked interest.
DivineAssault  +   1140d ago
i love my vita but NO! i will never buy this game even if its $20.. Maybe $10 tho.. i dont like Nihilistics style.. I hope they can change my thoughts on that
