GAME Call of Duty: Black Ops                   

 

Overall Appeal

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -This is the fantastic game that the gaming world has been waiting for, has it met the expectations, to me, No. But they were super high

     -As a stand alone game it is a great buy, there is so much that it offers and with robust game modes and a ton of Co-op action you really should pick it up.

 

 

Fun Factor

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -This is a very fun game, full of great components and depth

     -There is so much to do that any shooter fan probably wouldn’t get board

     -Way more fun with a friend 

 

 

Replay Value

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Some people will own this game until they sell their system

     -With all the game modes why would you sell it?

Presentation/Graphics

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Story, flawless and outstanding

     -Zombies, a little weak, World at War was a little better

     -Online, Lags and Choppy    

 

 

Online

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The online component is what most people bought the game for and in my opinion it wasn’t ready.

     -Yes, Extremely vast game modes and play options that you can spend hours and hours killing everyone on the planet at

     -But glitches, lags, and some choppy graphics give it an unpolished look

     -Maybe my hopes where too high, maybe I just expected too much but Ronin has been running around the office saying nothing can beat Bad Company 2 for online multiplayer, and maybe he is right, for now!            

 

 

Storyline

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Flashbacks to past events moves the story alone, although you are not sure where it is going the action keeps you from asking too many questions

     -However, it is a little short   

                       

 

Character

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Mason is your storyline character (for the most part) he is a tough yet not overly developed character, but that fits the franchise standard                                 

 

 

Customizable

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Story, Nothing

     -Zombies, Nothing

     -Multiplayer, TONS, you can customize your class, your Playercard and your guns. Everything can fit your style of play, it is SWEET!!!

 

 

Camera

     -Gotta love the online Kill Cam

     -The online scopes are a little hard to see out of  

 

 

Controls

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The controls are pretty good, I find it hard to shoot and drop to prone, but a lot of others can do it quite easy
