GameCritics: Call of Duty: Black Ops Review

GameCritics writes: "Trying to put "yeah, it's OK" into a full article is harder than one might think. Games that stir strong feelings are much easier to write about, simply because I'll have a ready supply of superlatives to churn out into paragraphs. In this case, there's really not much else to say here—the FPS is a somewhat stagnant genre nowadays, and Black Ops is Exhibit A as to why. There's no real creative risk being taken, and while that might be just fine for sales figures, it doesn't bode well for Call of Duty: Black Ops' ability to stand out artistically in the immensely flooded FPS market."

The best review I've read for COD:BO so far, not because Gamecritic's Richard Naik gave this game a below average score but because he wrote in lengthy, easy-to-read details on why so many points had to be deducted. I still believe Treyarch lives off of Infinity Ward's success, smh. It's Respawn's turn now.

While I agree 100% with the first part of this comment, I have to sadly admit that the sales figures are what drive the market.

A large number of people like the overall feel of MW2 and Black Ops and are willing to keep buying it. Now, from a longevity standpoint (think DLC), you sir just might be on the money.

Best review of the game.For pc its a 7 gmae for me.I played it on x360 of my friend.There it can get 8.0.But 9 or above for this copycat of a game which can get virtually unlimited budget is pure blasphemy.How much more sale do you need to bring a polished and bug free game,Treyarch?
