Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified review - Pocket Gamer

Pocket Gamer's Peter Willington writes: "Everything about Declassified is a massive middle finger to the fans. It's a £45.00 mistake for you to make this Christmas, driven to purchase it on a wave of excitement from Black Ops II on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. It serves no purpose but to frustrate and annoy, with lacking single player, little use of the potentially fascinating BLOPS universe, and almost totally broken multiplayer."

Ouch! I called the bad reviews, but this is the first I've seen. Any others out yet?

jony_dols2654d ago (Edited 2654d ago )

Most of the user reviews I've seen online have been very positive though. A lot of the negativity in this review centers around Declassified's online stability, but a new patch has just been released that might have addressed some of these issues.

...kinda split on whether to pick this up down the line for cheap or not bother at all.

I am sick of people talking shit on a game they haven't tried personally. Waiting for reviews isn't going to prove anything. It is not a full fledged console release but it will be unfairly compared to one by all of the reviewers anyway.

I bought it for myself to make my own opinion of it and am very happy with it so far.

ronin4life2654d ago

I hope you.aren't referring to the metacritic spambot reviews...-_-;;

Snookies122653d ago

Lol why all the disagrees? I wanted the game to be good, I really did. Though hearing that they hadn't shipped out review copies before the game even released was concerning and made me lean towards it ending up with bad reviews.

It's a really good COD game actually. I understand why it's getting hammered because of the lack of content. Very similar to ridge racer in this respect. I'm going to look past this because of how fun the online is. If you like COD you will love this. Finally, you can play CoD in bed. I never thought I would live to see the day:p. I'm hoping for some more maps and maybe a zombie mode. That would pretty much seal the deal and make this the killer app for the vita.

No suprise..To me it just seems a bit rushed this game, and it does not look interesting overall. And since the devs is the same as Resistance Burning Shit... lol

Kaneda2654d ago

Is this person playing MOH and thinking it is COD? :)

bubblebeam2654d ago

I thought Burning Skies was good. Then again I am a Resistance fanboy ;)

People who are waiting for a good FPS multiplayer on the VITA should just wait. Killzone Mercenary is coming out next year, but I'm still not sure whether it is having MP.

I do know that it is being made by Guerrilla games and is using the Killzone 3 engine.

Good review. Never a good sign when the reviewer has to purchase their own copy.

eferreira2654d ago

a lot of people on youtube actually like the game

NonShinyGoose2654d ago

Probably because they've just forked out £44.99 for it.

Pixel_Enemy2654d ago

So did the reviewer so your point fails.

I have it and love it. I am not even a fan of the COd franchise and I am having a great time on multiplayer. I was worried at first because Resistance sucked so bad in my opinion. But Declassified is the shooter the dual analog sticks were made for on the vita.

NewMonday2653d ago


that would actually make gamers more critical of a game, they would really be upset if the game was not decent

LOGICWINS2654d ago

A lot of people on Youtube also like Justin Bieber and Lil Wayne...your point?

XabiDaChosenOne2653d ago

Such a vague comparison I don't know what, just delete your profile and start a new one under a different name. Logic wins but yours loses, BIG TIME!

andibandit2653d ago

The game is just a washed down bo2, get bo2 instead

rezzah2653d ago

Vita games are not meant to be an exact replica of console games, just the closest quality to can get to one on the go.

If you want to buy BOD then buy it as its own game, not as a replacement for Bo2 (which is dumb).
