Call of Duty: Black Ops - official release in approx an hour.
And in all honesty, it’s shocking… ly bad.
I had the ‘pleasure’ to play it the other day, and well, it was truely terrible.
The graphics for both the campaign and zombie mode were appauling and the mechanics behind the controls and the playability are just poor.
I didn’t get a chance to look at the multiplayer, but thats all everyones going to buy it for anyway. So fuck it. Why bother trying to pick it apart?
So to everyone who will be queueing up in the cold, shivering for a copy: You have been warned.
I have seen your recent comments on how you do not like the Call of Duty series but you don’t seem to actually rate and bestow your knowledge about games in a non-biased manner.
The graphics thus far are nothing more or less then the previous Call of Duty games other than the fact that texture streaming has been upgraded. How would the graphics go from great to terrible this quickly? It is understandable that while CoD4 & MW2 were made by Inifity Ward and CoDWaW & BlackOps were made by Treyarch could change the substance in which the player perceives the graphics, I cannot believe that they would plummet to the extent of being terrible. Graphics are not what make games, but they are important and in previous years data has shown that graphics are a selling point, but graphics for a triple A game such as this is not a primary concern gameplay is.
You mention the control scheme is terrible which also does not seem to make sense since all of the Call of Duty games feature the same controls. Call of Duty is a beacon of how FPS controls should function and allow for quick reaction in similar Action Games. Unless Treyarch took the controls and threw them into a blender how could it be possible they “also” downgraded to such a terrible level.
Ever since I stumbled upon your account I have enjoyed the nifty little comments about games from time to time, but if you really wish to become a journalist for games then unbiased and cited information is needed as well as “picking” through game content. Even if you hate the game it is important to be able to review it correctly and provide evident reasons for why it is bad.
I hope this is helpful and in no way am I trying to sound offensive I am merely curious to your reasoning and wish to throw out a helpful hand.
