With just hours to go until some of you will be waiting outside retail stores to get your hands on Call of Duty: Black Ops, the only thing you can do to keep yourself sane is by reading a review of the 7th installment of the franchise. We already have the opinion of one reviewer, who for the most part loved the game. We have yet another review for you, so always good to get another perspective.
Michael Menzel from Game-Pad points to the fact that COD Black Ops is meant to be the most complete game from the series. It is no secret that when it comes to FPS games, Call of Duty is usually the benchmark, so this latest game has a huge weight on its shoulders.
If we were to pick out a couple of key elements of this review, then it would be how he states that the graphics are nothing like they were on Modern Warfare 2, although they are still better than other FPS games currently on the market. However, the larger maps and being more aware of the character you play makes you get more into the game.
Apart from the issue with the graphics Call of Duty: Black Ops has evolved to become a much better game, but Menzel might not please fans of the game when he concludes that “It’s not perfect, but it’s a damn good game.” Read his full review.
