Call of Duty: Black Ops is a 2010 first-person shooter video game developed by Treyarch and published by Activision.
Black Ops takes place in the Vietnam Era and puts you in the shoes of Alex Mason. Mason is being interrogated for information that he is having trouble remembering. You play through his memories as he remembers them. The Call of Duty franchise is known for its action-packed, guns blazing, movie-like single-player experience and Black Ops is no different. From all the bullets flying, grenade chucking, and huge explosions everywhere expect action around every corner in Black Ops story mode. Unfortunately, there are minor slowdowns during the story mode when there is a lot of action going on but they are rare. This plot is really deep and you will find yourself getting involved in the plot. The single-player experience will only last you around 4-6 hours unless of course, you play on the notorious “Veteran Mode” which will definitely add a few more hours to the story.
Objectively, they put a lot of work into this and there are lots of options. Controls are tight and responsive, and the game moves extremely fast. Maps, however, are small. Compared to MW3, it appears they’re about 30% smaller, some being even 50% smaller. This gives a clear advantage to the quick-twitch, run n’ gun set. You can also notice a distinct lack of *actual* defensive cover. Not much by way of camping here, which is probably a good thing if the fast-paced, less strategic game is your cup of tea. Sniping seems to be discouraged by Treyarch in light of the lack of cover, small maps, and short sightlines. In terms of competition, it’s ridiculous. Again, don’t be surprised to literally have any kills in this game, I found myself dead before I even knew someone was near me. But again, that’s the caliber of skill, not the game.
