While overly familiar, Black Ops offers a compelling package of intense multiplayer action and a gripping single-player campaign that will ensure fans have plenty to do until next year's iteration.

We like

  • The enormity of things to do in multiplayer
  • The gripping storyline
  • The hilarious and immensely enjoyable Zombie mode

We dislike

  • The poor AI
  • The various clipping, shading and other visual issues
