Gametrailers-Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified

GT:It may not be the Vita's most important game for 2012, but Black Ops: Declassified certainly ranks near the top, thanks to the power of the Call of Duty brand to move systems. Yet while the Vita should be more than capable of delivering an experience in the same ballpark as the console versions, Black Ops: Declassified can't even squeeze through the turnstiles. What we have here is a sloppy, stripped-down shooter that should have remained confidential. (Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, PS Vita) 3.6/10

at least they recognized that the vita deserves more. This game is shit. here I thought it would make something big with the vita. Instead, its reversed.

Have to agree...Sony should have never let this POS come on the VITA.

007 Golden eye for the N64 looks like it plays 10 times better than this.

The AI is so slow to react and just sprays all over the place.

The sad part about this is that some people may play this and get turn off by the VITA because they might think all shooter on the Vita are like this game.

I think this is a BS review, a copy-paste of what the "general consensus" is, with artificially generated false issues.

The dumbness of AIs - please reviewers, show me a shooter where AIs actions make significantly more sense, and they behave believably, especially in the CoD series you give 9s every year. Besides somehow on every video, review or gameplay, I see players getting shot left and right even with an AI that does everything not to shoot you (of course the player has 200x more HP than AIs). Guess what, if AIs in current shooters behaved realistically, aimed and fired at the player, then these games would be virtually unplayable, especially for journos and media talking heads.

The mulitiplayer got bashed by some early connection issues and some mythical spawn kills that are just a small fraction of the overall kill count and happen to every player at random - so no, not only the reviewers spawn near enemies, it works both ways and is natural for a CoD game with small maps - nuketown 2025 anyone? well documented MW3's spawns?
Nothing except launch problems and spawn kills is mentioned about the multi (because it's actually good) besides whining that there's ONLY 12 perks and 9 attachments, WOW, would 50 and 30 be enough?

To summarize: the game got bashed with artificial issues and had double standards applied to it, in order to justify the mandatory 3/10 for this game.
The reviews for Declassified are a US-wide media lie campaign and a coordinated attack against the game, Sony and the Vita - what ever its origin and mechanism really is, exactly the same happened with Duke Nukem Forever, a good game), and shows that there's something evil and suspicious with the "western" gaming media
