The day has finally come and I am sure by now every Call Of Duty fan has managed to pick themselves up a copy of Black Ops. Whether it be from a midnight launch, pre-order, store purchase or an armed robbery.
Over the past few months, all of us here at OSM have provided you with plenty of Black Ops coverage to keep you entertained up until this day. It is nice to see that some of our stories and theories have been implemented into the game. First of all the creepy viral video is played at the Zombie Mode main menu. The fuzzy television trend is also kept to add to the chills and thrills.
You may also notice that the first playable map, Kino Der Toten is a World at War map which was held back. It contains our favorite characters Dempsey, Nikolai, Takeo and Richtofen who all survived Der Riese as you see them hop out of the teleporter at the start of the game. The Ray Gun and Monkey Bomb have both returned with a host of new weapons; no confirmation on the Wunderwaffe as of yet. Is it in the mystery box? Also we see an new type of “monkey like” zombie due to its crawling, climbing and smelly capabilities.
Two more classified maps are also available once you have completed the campaign mode however only a handful of players will be cracking on with that today. We know that the second map is in the pentagon with the playable characters being world leaders and the other is the dead ops arcade. So you have a whole campaign story, unlimited multiplayer, 2 zombie maps and the dead ops arcade to play and no doubt we will see a map pack next year; there is so much choice with this game!
Tell us what you think of Black Ops so far and what its best features are. Does it deserve the title as the highest selling game of all time or is it all just hype? Do you think Medal Of Honor is the real war game of the year? We welcome all of your opinions, ideas and comments so feel free to leave them for us below.
