"This is Call of Duty: Black Ops? The game that has broken sales records and conquered the entire entertainment industry? This is the game that has managed to whip gamers into a frenzy, and lead retail giant GameStop to hold more midnight launches on release than any time in its history?
Because the singleplayer game I played seemed a little at odds with these industry-dominating achievements. Dated gameplay and graphics? The reappearance of heavily scripted sequences and scenarios, and arbitrary death for when you don’t follow that script? Linear levels? Infinite enemy respawning again?
Although… what about that intriguing and daring story, and that interesting delivery method?
And how about that multiplayer portion of Call of Duty: Black Ops? As fully featured and deep as you like, with more customisation options and game modes than most any other online competitive game!
No, this is Call of Duty: Black Ops.
