GamesTM- Black Ops: Declassified Review

GamesTM- Developer Nihilistic has since recently confirmed that it is rebranding as nStigate Games and is ditching physical retail altogether. While it’s tempting to suggest that the overwhelmingly negative critical reaction to this rather lacklustre Vita title is the reason for the studio’s cathartic rebirth, the choice was clearly made long before the scathing reviews started to trickle in.

Even so, Black Ops Declassified is a sorry way to end 14 years of coding history at Nihilistic. The kindest thing you can say about it is that it’s a reasonably authentic facsimile of the Call Of Duty blueprint, yet it feels like the work of an artist who is painstakingly tracing a masterpiece but lacks the craft to replicate the magical that made the original so attractive in the first place. (Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, PS Vita) 4/10
