If you were previously uninterested in buying Black Ops: Declassified for the PS Vita, we have one final gameplay video for you to watch, before it goes on sale this Tuesday. The Black Ops port has already reached some lucky PS Vita owners, and we now have some exciting Nuketown gameplay to show you, giving you an exact look at how the popular multiplayer map looks on the 5-inch OLED screen.
It doesn’t actually look too bad to tell the truth. We admit that we were very skeptical on Declassified after witnessing a lot of delaying tactics from Activision and Sony, followed by the initial round of screenshots that didn’t really impress us that much. Having said that, we’re pleased to have changed our minds about the game as the weeks have gone on, with more recent gameplay suggesting that Declassified actually looks decent on the Vita and could be well worth taking a look at on November 13.
We’re well aware that the game doesn’t come with zombies which is a major disappointment, but the 4v4 online multiplayer mode does look pretty fun, even if it isn’t the higher player count like traditional multiplayer on console. In a new gameplay video, we see a live online match on Nuketown (Nukehouse in game) going on, with the environment and screen text, almost exactly the same as we’re used to seeing on console.
There are notable differences in texture quality compared to the console version, although nothing too major to criticize. The famous killstreaks have made it into Declassified multiplayer as well we’re pleased to say, as you can see Care Packages and Sentry Guns being deployed, just to name a few.
With six players playing in this particular match, it does seem a little quiet than the usual carnage that we’re used to seeing on console. Two more players to make up the full 8 man match should improve the situation, but then again – playing with 3 other players on a handheld, against 4 enemies online is not a bad result on the PS Vita.
All in all, this looks pretty tasty. Do you still have doubts about Black Ops: Declassified, or have you now decided to pick up a copy this week? Have the developers Nihilistic actually done a good job on the game or not?
