Call of Duty: Black Ops – Declassified – 2/10

Whats so bad about this game?

bicfitness1744d ago

Once one reviewer starts the troll-bandwagon, they all hop on and try to outdo the other. I'm not a fan of CoD or shooters in general, but a 2/10 should be reserved for something that is unplayable and utterly broken. Strong personal dislike or a mismatch between value and price could net you a 5/10.

Activision deserves to have Declassified rated that way. Otherwise they will continue making half-assed unpolished games, especially portable ones just to make more money. If consumers are actually smart they will pay attention to how horrible the game is and avoid getting it.

bicfitness1744d ago

@blitz. They deserve to have CoD rated as the average game with good MP that it is. 7/10 sort of material. What happened here is they had to gush over Black Ops 2, so they took out their hidden frustrations on an okayish Vita game (2 targets in one).

Edit: ah, nevermind.

if you hate a game how can you give it 5/10? A review is an opinion after all.

I can assure you 90% of the reviewers dislike this game simply because "it's not like Black Ops 2".

j-blaze1744d ago

the game simply sucked, stop defending it because it's a vita game, it's pathetic

RuperttheBear1744d ago

Maybe it's just a bad game?

Riderz13371744d ago

Nah I've played it and while it's not an amazing game it surely isn't a 2/10 game.

RuperttheBear1744d ago (Edited 1744d ago )

What would you give it out of 10? And why should I trust your opinion over the many, many reviewers that have gave it poor reviews?

Riderz13371744d ago

You shouldn't trust anyones opinion other than your own. They are all irrelevant considering they are all reviewing the game on the hopes that it is equivalent to it's console counterpart.

According to reviewers: main campaign is only 4 hours, AI it's terrible to the point that enemies don't even shoot and just wait there to be killed, level design is equally terrible and the online multiplayer is supposedly full of issues and connection dropouts. And the fact that the game costs $50 while every other Vita game sells for $40 doesn't helps the case either.

turgore1743d ago

Dead AI. Short missions that are basically spec ops missions. Sloppy controls. Frustrating. Nothing interesting about it.

MizTv1743d ago

I got it as a gift and it not that great the sp is kind if lame and the mp is kind of bare bones if you ask me
That said I wouldn't give it a 2 maybe a 5 or 6 cause it does play ok

listenkids1743d ago

That's quite high for Edge.

xAlmostPro1743d ago (Edited 1743d ago )

Tbh it's awful, it barely tops PSP graphics. It has 6 story levels.. 6!! Which are literally shooting waves of enemies.

Multiplayer is OK.. but has a low player count(Vita needs full multiplayer support).

To top this, it's edge who have a habit of giving low review scores.

I'd give it a 4/10 to be honest but hey. It is pretty awful but it plays decently. I regret spending £40 on it.

IAmLee1743d ago

The fact a reviewer completed the game in less than an hour?

2/10? Thats silly really unproffesional couldnt they get a guy that doesnt hate COD to review it? Someone neutral would be nice but I dont care for reviews and these guys make me feel Iam right not to listen to these fools.

RPG12011743d ago

What, just because it's named COD it can't suck? Where the hell have you been?

mafiahajeri1743d ago

2/10 should be reserved for games that are broken or unplayable which blops is definitely not the zombies mode alone should guarantee this game a decent score if he scored it a 6 then I wouldn't have doubted the review but a 2? Haters gonna hate came to mind. Don't tell me where I been I've been playing cod online since cod 2 on the 360 and I know recent games are not so great but none of them deserve a 2.

The question you should be asking yourself is just because it's cod does it deserve a 2? Cod hateing is what it is.

The funny thing is COD Blops Declassified is by far the BEST FPS on any handheld ever made. Its also still a far better game then Nihilistic first attempt at a VITA FPS in Resistance: Burning Skies, which has a lot of bugs. If these reviewers would stop comparing the game to home console FPS games then they would see what most of us that bought the game already know.

christheredhead1743d ago (Edited 1743d ago )

I'm not disagreeing because it is the best FPS on handheld, but still a terrible game. Its the best of the worst in my opinion. The game is lackluster and bare bones that offers the most basic watered down FPS you can play.

Its great that its a Vita title and its a step in the right direction to start, but the terrible scores are completely accurate. I mean sure, bump up the score a couple of points to a 4 or 5 if that makes people feel better, still not gonna help this title.

I think people want it to be good cause its a Vita FPS. This is not the title most people were hoping for though. They could have done so many things right with this title and completely knocked it out of the park. Yet, everything feels slapped together to meet the basic premise of calling it COD. They definitely missed the mark big time.

EmperorDalek1743d ago

Modern Combat 4 is a much better portable FPS.

NoTheMama1743d ago

the butthurt vita owners here are quite sad, not every game is going to be a friggin masterpiece!
You guys just cannot tolerate negativity at all, its quite hilarious.
