Call Of Duty Black Ops: Week In Review

By Updated on

It has certainly been a long week where Call of Duty Black Ops is concerned, and there is certainly a long way to go before gamers get bored with the latest FPS and move onto the next big game. Much as been discussed over the past week, so we thought we would have a review of the top stories so far.

The first thing were the early reviews of Black Ops, for the most part the reviewers gave the game good ratings, but there were a few that pointed to a few issues with the game. These included a poor campaign story and nothing new for zombies – which I found surprising.

The next stage to COD Black Ops was how gamers reacted to the poor graphics. As you would imagine, hard-core fans of the game defended this by saying that it is more about the gameplay than graphics – and they would be correct. However, I cannot help but think Treyarch let fans of the franchise down a little.

The next stage in the week of Black Ops was the lag issues that PC users were experiencing. However, this has now been solved, but the number of other issues within other platforms still needs to be rectified.

The final part of the Call of Duty: Black Ops saga are the cheats and unlocks that are available for the game; most of which are for ‘Zombie Mode”. Have you tried any of these cheats for yourself yet?

So what does week two have in store for Black Ops?

    I don't know why people have such a big problem people have with this game. As far as I'm concerened is a great game with great online game play. The reviews for this game should be all good in my book, ya theres a few small flaws but theres flaws in all games. get over it and play the game for what its made for to. TO HAVE FUN

    I personally like MW2 better because it feels more intense, loud , has more of a "in your face" game play. It also feels faster. There are some parts to black ops that I appreciate, such the difficulty for "campers" to "camp". The maps are smaller which makes more of a moving game rather than a sniper battle over a huge map like Derail or Wasteland.

    I personally have to say that a girl growing up with video games, with Socom and all i am disappointed with this game. I most deff. like MW2 better. I do play with all of my guy friends, and family members, but i still have to say that Black Ops is not what I expected at all. Lagging is just ridicules, and I hate how you have to buy everything, because it is now based on points after each match. Even the special ops is just stupid. In MW2 its actually decent, graphics in this game are a let down, and I wish I still had everything on MW2 so I could go back and play and not this. I guess I just expected more!

    black ops is a great game dont no what u are all talking about

    Black ops is an awesome game. Treyarch really tried to make this game stand out from the rest and I must say, it does. But I’m more of an online player and I must say I would rather play MW2 any day of the week. For starters Black Ops online play could really use some work. It takes almost an entire clip to kill someone where as on MW2, they die quicker which is more realistic. There are no good places to snipe on Black Ops, and people camp their buts off. Like literally plant a claymore and watch the door. Its ridiculous. I’m the kind of player that like to run around and get into the game. Not just sit in one place and shoot whoever runs in front of me. & the killstreaks don’t count towards one another so everyone is camping trying to gets dogs or something. Treyarch made a good game, but no where near as good as Modern Warfare 2.

    • jake

      well if u cant get dogs without dieing u suck bad and thats the reason why they didnt put high killstreaks bc the killstreak doesnt count toward it. and dude theres a butt load of places to snipe i snipe all the time on black ops

  • Novice Mike

    How do I abort the launch at the auxillary control bunker? No ammo??

  • new cod is a joke

    cod black ops sucks compared to cod MW2 …. mw2 has better everything and in black ops were fighting vc's and shit… way over played in that time era.. medal of honor covered all of those past wars and shit. i was expecting to be inside some city in iraq or crazy street/building game play and fighting terrorist or something, instead i end up in the woods and jungle chasing 1/2 and 1/2 vcs and white guy lookin vc's … im way dissapointed in this game if they make a new one im not reserving it and waiting a few days to see if they decide to make it current time line and quit over playing the past wars with bolt action guns and stupid shit… so gay, i really might return the game… im goin back to MW2… this game was a FLOP in my book

  • mw2 is better

    cod black ops is horrible compared to cod MW2 …. mw2 has better everything and in black ops were fighting vc's and stuff… way over played in that time era.. medal of honor covered all of those past wars and stuff. i was expecting to be inside some city in iraq or crazy street/building game play and fighting terrorist or something, instead i end up in the woods and jungle chasing 1/2 and 1/2 vcs and white guy lookin vc's … im way dissapointed in this game if they make a new one im not reserving it and waiting a few days to see if they decide to make it current time line and quit over playing the past wars with bolt action guns and stupid guns… so dumb, i really might return the game… im goin back to MW2… this game was a FLOP in my book

    also the live play is not 1/2 as fun as mw2

  • Ryan

    I have played Black Ops once and I am not terribly impressed by the graphics, the chopiness of the online play, and the lack of reality of just everything about this game. MW2 is far superior to this game. It seems that they cut a lot of corners and did not give the amount of dollars into putting this game into fruition that Activision did for MW2. If MW3 is in the works, and if its going to be better than MW2 then I can't wait to see what Activision does next, but if they put out another game like Black Ops then I will be very dissapointed.

  • steve

    i really dont like how you get all your weapons instantly i liked how in mw2 you had to earn your killstreaks rewards and weapons

  • thesaintsfc

    black ops is hideous for a few reasons the main 2 being the respawns hideous to say the least but the biggest one being the amount of lead needed to take someone down 3 bursts of the m16 and even then there is no guarantee they go down .needs to be sorted

  • Big SeXy

    i think mw2 is way better. the sound is horrible for black ops and the spawn system sucks d*** and even the graphics suck. after playing black ops for a day i was fustrated and pissed at the game. i hated it. on mw2 i played it for a year and it was like brand new and fun, and black ops did not bring the fun factor to me.

  • Jacob

    This game sucked it was exactly the same as cod world at war. As far as the zombies go it could not be closer to call of duty world at war. It was boring and i would not recommend it to my worst enemy. Super let down

  • Jack-Demolay

    I have to agree with what most people said before. I couldn't wait to get my hands on Black Ops. And after it finaly arrived I plais a few hours and was really shocked at how poor the sounds were espeacially the gun ships. The next thing was the flow of the game. I don't know how it#s on the PC and X-Box but the PS3 game flow seems sluggish and the graphics are very similar to World at War. I think the inovations concerning pers. weapons, apearance etc. are very good ideas. But gameflow and graphics should have been on Treyarch top list. I certainly don't think I will be getting new maps for Black Ops. I'll wait for MW3 and new maps for MW3. I hope MW3 will also leave out the dogs.

    At first I thought I didn't have the system set up right but after a while realized that the graphics just really weren't great. After 29 yrs of not playing a video game I found that the graphics and interaction in MW2 hooked me and it's the only game I've played before BoPs came out. MW2 graphics definitely better and after playing BoPs for two month's I think I will go back to MW2. I had gottten the extra maps and thought they were great. Weapons Camo, Crossbow, and ability to create your own playercard icon is great.
