Watch the first 15 minutes from the Call of Duty Black Ops singleplayer campaign.
This was mind-blowing for sure, 15 minutes of pure awesomeness. I really hope the whole campaign is as great as what I've just watched. Edit: I think I need to elaborate. I've completed both MWs' campaigns, and while I believe the whole boat sequence for MW 1 was really great and intense, the way Black Ops begins is outstanding. Can't judge the whole storyline of course, but I am interested in knowing what happens after these 15 mins. Plus the game looks beautiful, and that wasn't in HD. I'm not judging Black Ops, I'm not going to say CoD is bound to fail or CoD is the best thing ever created, but as a Solo-only gamer, I really thought it was a great way to start a campaign and I really hope Treyarch delivers. And even if it ends being a 5-6 hours only Solo, if it's as immersive and as action-packed than the opening, it will be praise-worthy. Let's also hope the multiplayer component of the game will succeed in being one of the best multi experience for a FPS.
The multiplayer is already a given. Also Treyarch said on Gametrailers that the campaign will last 8 hours on the easiest difficulty. Considering I beat God of War III on easy in 7hours 59 minutes, this should more than satisfy the average single player gamer. I.E GOWIII, was just an example single player campaign
Well I do hope they're right about that! I played MW2's campaign directly in Veteran and it took me 10 hours to finish it (mostly because of too much trial and error) but I had a lot of fun while playing it. Same goes for God of War 3, did it in Titan and it took me 10 hours, with only a few hard places where I kept dying (some still remember the infamous cerberus + 2 satyrs scene), but I enjoyed every second of it. The whole point is, a single player experience must be great from the intro sequence to the ending to fully satisfy the player. Castlevania and Vanquish are great exemples.

-Yeah I'm with you on this one, I'm really excited now, love the way it started... should be a pretty cool campaign -can't wait.. Love the Graphics -they seem really polished and stepped up a lot from MW2... so should be fun... Some people may be tired of the FPS market, -but I think there is still room for the one's who do it right, and this one seems to be done right.. I like the way they captured it.. they seem to have added more drama and intense type of feel to the war... will it be the greatest game ever -probably not. But it sure as hell is going to be a lot of fun, and keep me really busy while I wait for GT5.. Defiantly looks worthy of being in the video game collection. So if you didn't pre-order yet, go ahead and get that out of the way now, Amazon still has that 20 bucks thing going on so what are you waiting for... -See you Nov 9.th people .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
Seen the first 15 seconds and i already know that this game will pwn MW2 singleplayer cause it starts with character development! character development!!!! OMFG!!! xD
You must be misinformed because the game manifests on over 9000 flashbacks. Good luck with that though.
lol if those flashbacks are actual story fine by me
I'm not watching it because I want to be surprised.
The campaign is going to be EPIC!
I feel that when the game will be released by then we'll watch all the campaign as a "leaked gameplay", SO PLEASE STOP TEASING!!!! :P

finished the game today on the xbox360, the game still has some wow effects/moments and i think the graphics are damn fine in the singleplayer, but i found that they overused the flashback storytelling too much and also there are more "follow me" interactive cutscenes than in other COD games which i found a little boring... SP is about 5 hours long (nobody was probably waiting for more) and the game shouldn't get less than 9/10 IMHO.
9/10? Right, you haven't played online because you pirated it. So it will be 10/10 when you get to play the multiplayer.
i know the online will be good, but i wouldn't give it a 10/10... and don't worry i have the PS3 version preordered, just couldn't wait and had to play the singleplayer on my testbox360 ;)
Same here, but vice versa on my Teststation 3.
I watched the first minute and then I cut out. Already can see that the story for Black Ops is going to be head over what MW2 was. I know a lot of folk have been saying COD has sucked sinced MW, but this looks like it could revolutionize COD. Here's hoping!
a market somewhat near my apartment were they already have copies of the X360 going out...I've played a few mins and, since Im not used to the X360 pad.....I sux at it..it seemed interesting, but whatever...not my genre and so good luck to those that enjoy the fps/tps shooting.
Wish there were some videos of single player\combat training, would like to see how the bots play
Damn it got taken down =(
