Mark Fujii of TheGameReviews writes: "As awesome as Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops announcement teaser was, it really didn’t reveal a whole lot about the game. Presumably because it was edited by an ADHD affected child armed with a pair of scissors. All the action was unnecessarily distorted, providing almost nothing aside from an unwelcome epileptic seizure. However, a few things could be deduced. The game is set in Vietnam. People get shot in the face and spacemen are involved. That’s pretty badass. But is it badass enough? Even with the franchise’s penchant for packing in more explosions and mindless violence than a collaboration between Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer, Call of Duty: Black Ops needs more. Like these ten totally badass things."
