Review of Call Of Duty: Black Ops
By Jennifer White
You hear about it everywhere, kids rushing home from school, young adults waiting to get off work. Even older adults are obsessed with the new Call Of Duty: Black Ops video game. It was being sold in over whelming amounts with pre release orders. Many people bought it without even knowing if it was as good as it was made out to be. The hype made the game so popular, that the jeep company made a jeep wrangler the black Ops edition.
It was so popular that in the first 24 hours of it being released; it sold over 5.6 million copies. Making a total of 360 million dollars, that was just in the first day! Is it really as amazing of a game as it is made out to be. I think it is and many gamers would agree. The online play in its self makes the game really enjoyable, because not only can you play against other people. It makes it so you can buy guns, attachments, camouflage and various other possessions. The buying aspect is good because it makes you want to play more and engage it the game farther. The more you play the more money you can earn. More money means more things you can buy, which enhances your game play.
The Campaign mode is enjoyable as well ;because it gives you another option if you do not wish to play online. The Campaign mode makes you feel like you are an actual black ops agent, named Mason. Who is being captured and tortured for information. It is where you can play through the story of the game. Another option is playing Nazi zombie’s; which is where a group of four people have to try to survive waves of Nazi zombies. It is really an entertaining option because it gets harder and harder with each wave. It makes it very hard to survive. The challenge of trying to survive wave after wave is very difficult.
Now back to online play, this is the best and most clearest reason why people want and go crazy for this game. You can play with up to 18 people online, you can play all different kinds of games. Such as team death match, search and destroy, free for all and many more. You can also unlock achievements and unlock new things to buy, such as weapons and stuff as you advance in the game. Online you can also buy a head set that lets you talk to the people you are playing with. This is good because you can interact and talk as you play.
This game is really good for people who like war games. It is really gory but if your buying a war game what do you expect. But if you are one who like’s war games and hates gore…..then there is an option for you as well. They made an option for people who don’t particularly like a lot of blood and guts flying everywhere. Or if you’re a parent and don’t want your kid exposed to it; then you can turn the gore off. Which I think is a really good option that the company made. Some people don’t want their kids exposed to things like that; but they want them to still be able to have the games they want. So this was really a good idea.
Now onto the graphics they are good but not the best I have seen. But that is the least of the gamers concerns; because the game it’s self is so good. It can also be used in 1080P. If your Television is compatible this makes your gaming experience more clear and it looks pretty awesome. This means that the picture of the game, has the ability to be in the best high definition.
The cost of the game was 60 dollars plus tax, for the Xbox 360 game version. I mean I personally think that’s a lot. Not because I don’t think the game is good, I just don’t think any games should cost that much. But sadly most do, they are all around that price range unless they are old. That’s really the only time they go down, I am not a fan of high costs but considering they all are that much; I wont say its bad and I wont say it’s good. I mean of course I wish it were cheaper! but with all new games being priced that high no one should or would expect any different.
Overall I was happy with the game, most people were, I am sure along the lines there are complainers. But I feel as though it is a pretty good game, I wasn’t disappointed with it in any way. I think many people feel the same way about . I give Black Ops a rating of 10 out of 10.Explore posts in the same categories: News
