"Black Ops stands out in some of the most unexpected areas. Not only is it the only FPS to get this year, it’s perfection, like the perfect sponge cake with the ideal icing." - GameState
I love COD, got my copy today so will have my review up ASAP. I will post link so we can compare :) PS Cool shirt. PPS Nice hair cut, but where's the Mo?
Thanks man! No Mo this side. I have the crappest facial hair! Let me see your review once it's up! :)
Gotta love this game!
Me too its what MW2 should have been.
wow i dont know about that. this game is REALLY good but MW2 is good also
Looks like a bucket of fun. Strange how you say it's perfect but then kick it in the pants about certain things all the way through :D
The game looks really good. Hope to get it soon. Great review Dr G :)
Look, it's perfect in many areas, but the joy comes from the SMALL things that they make up the value of the product in my opinion. The big things like the music were overlooked which is extremely disappointing.
...and the floating apple :)
Oh! And can we perhaps expect a Black Ops evening at your place sometime soon? Hehe
Sorry for all the comments... Pity that the soundtrack wasn't up to scratch. I love a good soundtrack in a game. It just adds to the experience. What can I say, I love music :)
Totally, so bleak about it. MW2 was the amazing game it was mainly because of the Hans Zimmer Soundtrack.
I picked mine up yesterday, got it on PC. Its one of the best FPS I have played in a while and the multiplayer kicks ass. Just waiting on the updated patch to be released and I'll be finishing the single player.
The PC port is poorly optimizated -pirated it, glad I did- and the gameplay is really more of the same. It's the same as always, OMG ITZ CALL OF DUTY 9/10 PERFECT GAEM, while it doesn't really tries anything else and shouldn't win any awards (in my opinion.)
you wouldnt have downloaded it. Obviously you like it enough to DL and play it, and are just to cheap to buy it. 9/10 is not a perfect game so dont get your panties in a bunch.
Perfection? dunno about that. The sound sucks for one, and the multiplayer is the same old shit. 8/10 :-)
Glad someone agrees with the sound issues. I hope you're talking about the OST there. But as I said in the title, it's the little details that launch it to 9/10. If it didn't have splitscreen online, zombie mode and theatre mode, it would've been just another Call of Duty game.
Its got Ice Cube for a voice over. That right there is enough to make it GOTY. LOL!
According to IMDB, Ice Cube's not in it. Is that true?
What about the framrates problems in the Ps3 version? more lag!....hope they patch soon....thank to odin i have a Xbox too.....
the only FPS to get this year? what about mag or BC2? cod is overrated as hell...a shooter for casual players..if you want a deep and objective based hardcore shooter MAG is the way to go.
it's all about zombies in the whitehouse. heard the new cod may be futuristic - the thought is confusing but if they can pull it off, why not.
