Already bored of Call of Duty Black Ops

| November 19, 2010 | 3 Comments

The single player campaign of Black Ops is probably the best single player 1st person shooter I’ve ever played, in war games that is. Bad Company was too short, Medal of Honor was dire and the previous Call of Duty’s were simply not as good as this one.

I’ve completed Black Ops in hardened and veteran difficulty but found it surprisingly easy compared to the previous COD’s which I still need to complete in veteran mode.

I’ve only played a few hours of Black Ops multi-player and I’m already getting bored with it. I do think it’s better than previous COD’s multi-player but the tricks & tactics people use haven’t gone away, such as Halo Jumping, which is what stopped me playing the previous versions of COD.

A few days ago Donncha posted a video about catching boosters in Black Ops, a perfect example of why something like this would stopped me playing and its only a matter of time that Black Ops on-line play will end up being the same as previous versions, full of boosters and cheats.

    1. What annoys me about the game is the lack of skill matching, although when I play by myself I do better because Duck, Mike and everyone else I play with have unlocked much better weapons so the game does do some sort of level matching, against them.

      Might be playing some BfBC2 tonight if you’re on for it?

      I’ve noticed the skill matching is really bad in COD. I keep saying to myself that guy at Level 40 is only 15 and I will crush him, doesn’t help my game play though.

      I’ll try my best to get on for BfBC2 tonight.

      I agree 110% that the single player has one of the best stories I’ve ever seen in a FPS. I loved all the twists in the plot at the end. Black Ops multiplayer should be supported a lot better then MW2 ever was since Treyarch is still around (unlike Infinity Ward). One of the main reasons they added the Theatre Mode was to catch cheaters, hackers and modders. I’ve been reporting every one I see so hopefully it’ll help and the cheats will get banned.
