Last week I had a chance to play Gran Turismo 5 in 3D on the PS3, and I have to say that I was not impressed. So when I first learned that CoD: Black Ops was also going to get this stereoscopic experience, I started to worry. However, after Chad Sapieha from The Globe and Mail spent 60-minutes with the game — I now feel more confidant of its future.
Call of Duty: Black Ops will be available for not only the PlayStation 3, but also the PC and Xbox 360 (following a firmware update). Sapieha also had the chance to play with GT5 and Killzone 3 as well.
He notes that the whole 3D experience seems far better on Black Ops than the other two titles, and believes that the most impressive thing with the 3D version is how extraordinary the weapons look. He makes a point of saying that the end of the gun nozzle looks as though it could touch your nose.
Read the review of Black Ops 3D at The Globe and Mail, along with a video here. I first thought that 3D was just a fad, but this was based on my experience of those stupid glasses that you get at a cinema. Gaming at home will be a totally different beast, the reason for this is thanks to active 3D glasses, just make certain that the batteries are fully charged —just wish organizers at the Eurogamer Expo 2010 thought the same.
