Call of Duty Black Ops is a first-person shooter with stealth and tactical play aspect that puts players in the role of a shadow soldier fighting in a variety of historically representative fictional Black Ops missions of the Cold War era. Created with the input of actual Black Ops soldiers from the time, the game mixes traditional Call of Duty tactical shooter gameplay with new gameplay options designed to expand the players' experience.

I purchased this game due to peer pressure, I had no desire to play this game BUT I'm glad that I did otherwise I would have missed out on a truely well prepared serving of Call of Duty. It is probably one of the smoothest running Call of Duty games available. Not only do you have the solo campaign which has an interesting Vietnam war era story with twists and turns, it also has a fantastic multiplayer mode. If you're new to the series don't worry becasue there's a multiplayer training mode where you can improve your skills before taking all those prestiegous die hard players out there. And there's the Zombie mode, where you try and survive as many zombies as possible. I found this was great when I had a few friends over and we would try and see who could survive the longest.
It conclusion, this is a great game and still worth the purchase even if you have other Call of Duty games as this one is unique.

This is a great game, most people say that Call of Duty is bad because of their yearly releases (even me at one stage) but then you realise that Infinity Ward make all of their Call of Duty's the same while Treyarch make all their ones different. World at War was different, this game is different. They do put effort into this game. Not a Must Buy but a Must Try!
