Edge: Call of Duty: Black Ops Review

The campaign may not have the chops, but Black Ops repackages one of the best multiplayer shooters around. That’s clearly enough for millions of fans, but it makes it far from a must-have – you probably own the best bits already. As polished and pretty and fun as Black Ops often is, it feels more like a yearly update than a sequel, a new campaign with old multiplayer. The game isn’t distinct from its predecessors in any important way, and fatigue sets in quicker than before. The feel-good story will have to wait.

Someone finally gives an unbiased opinion that is true! Is COD a fun game, hell yeah. Does it deserve 10s and 9s or even 8s, hell no. Why, because it is the same game that was released 3 years ago, nothing has changed except for small things that could have been implemented with DLC. All it has is a new skin and different ways of getting the same shit. Any other game would get serious points off for not innovating, yet not this one. I know if it isn't broken then don't fix it. But can anyone seriously tell me that the experience is so vastly different and better than it's predecessors that it is worth $60. This game should cost 25/30 at the most. I for one see it for what it is, a quick cash in and because of that I won't bite. There are some way more innovative and fun titles I can play that deserve the $60 price tag.

I don't hate it either, you obviously didn't read my comment, I said it was fun, I even said "hell yeah it is fun." What you failed to read was that it is not worth $60. Also, for the record yes you can add new campaigns through DLC, ever heard of Red Dead Redemption. As for the rest of your comment you further proved my point by providing examples of things that have all been implemented as DLC for a lot of other games. There were no lies in my comment just my opinion that COD gets free passes and over charges for what is essentially DLC.
