Call of Duty: Black Ops (Xbox 360)
Advantages: Highly addictive and fun to play
Disadvantages: If you haven't got xbox live you miss the best part of the game
Call of duty black ops is one of the most popular first person shooters on Xbox 360. I have been playing Call of Duty Black Ops since it was released as it's an excellent game. There are three mane game modes Campaign, Zombies and Multiplayer.
In campaign you find yourself playing as an American named Mason. As you play each mission you find your in different places and environments with a range of different guns and vehicles to use. The game play is exciting and has a good story line with an unexpected ending. There are 4 difficulty levels recruit, regular, hardened and veteran. I have played all the missions on regular difficulty as it is not to hard or frustrating. I have tried the campaign on veteran but some of the missions are extremely hard and almost impossible to complete.
In the zombies game mode you have to kill endless rounds of zombies with guns off walls, mysterious weapons and special perks. Its extremely fun and addictive and you can play with up to 3 friends or go solo. There are three zombie maps on the game which are Kino Der Toten, Five and Dead Ops Arcade. Kino Der Toten is the most fun as the map is not to crowed and has a lot of space to run around. Five has lots of small rooms so you don't usually get far as you are over run by zombies pretty quickly. Dead Ops Arcade is an arcade version of zombies were you see everything from the top of the map and after so many levels you move onto a new environment. Fun and different to the other maps.
In the highly addictive multiplayer mode you have a choice of playing a player match, wager match or combat training. In each gamer mode you choose your own guns, equipment, perks, grenades and killstreak rewards to use.
In player match you face other Xbox Live players in a variety of team and objective game modes from capturing flags and planting bombs to just killing other players on the opposite team. Every time you kill someone on the other team, catch an objective or blow up an objective you get XP and cod points. XP helps you rank up and get to a higher level. There are 50 and 15 prestige's. Every time you go up a level you unlock new guns, killstreak rewards and perks. You use to cod points to buy new guns, perks and killstreaks.
In wager matches you face other Xbox Live players in four different game modes Sharpe Shooter were everyone's gun is the same and changes every 45 seconds, Gun Game were you got to get a kill with 20 different weapons before someone else does, One in the Chamber were everyone starts off with a pistol that has one bullet that kills instantly and finally Sticks and Stones were everyone has an explosive crossbow a knife and a tomahawk. You don't earn XP you earn cod points. You basically bet cod points and if you finish in the top three you get you points back plus extra but if you don't finish in the top 3 you get nothing.
In combat training you don't face other Xbox Live opponents you face the AI. Your Xbox Live level doesn't go up but it's a great way to practice your skills and look for new sniper and camping spots.
There are a variety of small, medium and large maps in different environments. There is wide range of guns from LMGS and SMGS to Assault Rifles and Sniper Rifles. I found that some of the guns are overly powered over other guns which can get annoying when you keep getting killed by the same guy with the same weapon. One of the things that I like most about multiplayer is the killstreak rewards. Unlike most first person shooters you get rewarded for killing players in a row without dieing. The killstreak rewards range from 3 kills in a row to 11. The lower killstreak rewards are spy planes and air strikes and the higher killstreak rewards are controllable armed helicopters and attack dogs.
THE GAME OVERALL
Overall the game is fun, addictive and has a lot to offer. The campaign is pretty good and the zombies mode is fun to play but the best thing about the game is the multiplayer. There's a lot to do and this is properly the only game you will play for the first month of buying it.
I would highly recommended buying this game if you haven't already. You can get it for around £20 at most game shops at the moment.
Summary: Amazing game
