|Call of Duty: Black Ops is a first-person shooter with stealth and tactical play aspect that puts players in the role of a shadow soldier fighting in a variety of historically representative fictional Black Ops missions of the Cold War era. Created with the input of actual Black Ops soldiers from the time, the game mixes traditional Call of Duty tactical shooter gameplay with new gameplay options designed to expand the players' experience. Additional features include extensive multiplayer options, along with new vehicles and explosive new weapons.
Follow-up to 2009’s blockbuster Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops breaks new ground in the Call of Duty series and the video game industry at large by delving into the not-so cold conflicts of the Cold War.
Inspired by the experiences of real Black Ops soldiers of the era, the missions of Call of Duty: Black Ops take the player to a wide variety of settings, ranging from snowbound mountain strongholds in historical Soviet held territories, to the jungles and urban settings of Vietnam War era SE Asia. Throughout all, care has been taken to maintain the traditional essence of Call of Duty style combat, while also introducing new types of player action that add to the gameplay experience. Additional features include co-op, versus and team-based multiplayer options, new vehicles like the SR-71 Blackbird and lethal new weapons such as explosive-tipped crossbows.

Customer Reviews of Call of Duty: Black Ops

The Game is "OK " (sort of)12/16/2010
I gave this a one star rating, the game play is as the headline says, "OK" but the online play feature is a total joke. I got this game as a birthday gift from my wife, still in the store wrapper with a receipt. I installed it, played it for about 3 weeks, and then, one day "Steam" the people who dictate the networking portions for online play (yes, you must sign up for an account to play online) deactivated my account and locked me out of the game. No explanation, no reason given at all just locked out. I contacted them through their "e-mail tag" system and was treated like a thief trying to steal their game. I have asked why I was locked out, but no answers, I called Activision, the people who actually made the game and they deny all responsibility for the lock out, and claim that they do not support the online portion of the game, so now I have a $60.00 DVD and case, desk ornament that isn't even useful as a paperweight, as it is too "lightweight", just like Steam is with their customer support.
Good game if you live alone11/29/2010
If you plan on playing the single player campaign in this game you'll wan't to either be living alone or in someone's basement. The f-bombs are practically every other word. You can't watch a cut scene for more than 1 minute without 10 of them blasting out of your speakers. The gameplay is great and the game is well made but if you have a family, you'll want to at least wear headphones. If you're one of those people that only want the game for multiplayer, the extreme f-bombs won't be an issue in multiplayer.
A nice change11/29/2010
Have you played MW1 and MW2? what about COD 1, 2, 3, and 5? Well your in for a treat. Every mistake made has been taken away (the big mistakes). Detected serves (let me repeat that) detected serves. You can jump on to a server near you and never leave it and no waiting for the next game to start it'll load right away. The kill streaks aren't stupid and pointless (yeah no nukes). The rewards are money based and you can buy what you want and save up for all kinds of customizing. Not that many good sniping maps just a warning. The Solo story is very interesting and more real with the language (can be filtered kind of). The real fun is the ZOMBIES one room in an open foyér. So if your computers ready then get it and enjoy it'll be fun.
