Call of Duty: Black Ops, first impressions...

Originally I was not about to get this game, but I got my hands on a leaked copy, so why not? Well, those 69.95€ could have been spent on something far better... The campaign is... Confusing... And the story is a bit weak... I did really not like it... And the most important thing in a game, the multiplayer, was a huge letdown... Two words are enough to describe it; It sucks... And the graphics are also not the best... At some points they are terrible...

So here comes the points:

Graphics: 8.2
Multiplayer: 7.3
Story: 8.1

I have not yet tried it on Xbox LIVE, cause I would probably get banned off right away, so thats still something, but everything non-LIVE just sucked testicles... I wish I had not bought this bullshit, and I wont be playing it for all that long... And yes, MW2 is better...

Back to AVP and Halo:Reach...

The comments at work this week from those who have played it range from "ok" to "not bad",
no wonder they aren't allowed to publish the review yet

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

A leaked copy?

Do you mean you can go online with the pirate version? I'll download it if you can, I usually buy the top titles for online play but I'll swerve the cost if this one works

Pirate Version? No, this is the very real thing, and I am even more confident that it sucks than what I was a moment before... CoD has been going downhill since Cod 4... But guess who is in the game... A hint, the guy you sniped in CoD 4 when you played as Price... Ouh, spoilers...


Also, I am about 3-4 hours into the campaign, and it is bullshit, and I believe that ca. 1 hours of that has been cinematic non-controllable bullshit...

I've heard of a few people getting their hands on it. It's on my XMas list, but I won't be that fussed, from this and several other comments.

Just need EA to get their servers better, and longer, more challenging campaigns, and its sorted - the Hot Zone and Clean Sweep are good, the nerfed Bolt Actions were originally a pain until I started using Defensive Support to get Match Ammunition and am much better at snapping off headshots, and everything else, in general, a much more balanced game.

I like the fact that they've brought in Zakhaev again - he was a proper baddy, unlike Shitbeard and Massivecock.

I'm not too sure that Treyarch can match IW's or EA's teams. Zombies is alright, but I much prefer to run the Tier 1 or something similar. Is there anything along those lines?

Everyone I know in college is going nuts for it; I'm not so fussed.

Frankly, I'd rather spend the £45 on tyranids; however should it be incredible, I may put it down as something to get around christmas.

The only reason I'm at all interested in this game is Zombies. Don't care about anything else, which is why I'm not buying it.

8.1 is an awfully high rating to give a weak story.

I won't be buying Black Ops. I might play it over a buddies or even borrow it, but that's that unless I can be convinced. The last CoD game I found worth buying was the original Modern Warfare.
