From covert operations in the Bay of Pigs to slick, double-pistol weilding Jon Wu chases through city streets, the hellish jungles of Veitnam, and even flashbacks to the frozen killing feilds of WWII Russia, this innovative reinvention of the C.O.D franchise is a game of guts, will, and near super-human psychological endurance set against historically-based operations of the early Cold War.
In Black Ops, you'll have an array of weapons— the finest and most advanced weapons the 1960s have to offer, that is. Suffice it to say that your tactical maneuvering, quick wits, and ability to follow orders and complete objectives quickly will be your most valuable asset for survival. There are only a precious few moments in Black Ops in which your character will enjoy the advantage of a sophisticated weapons and the highground, element of surprise and an adequate group of fellow elite soldiers at the ready. Most of the time its, Mason, the main character, and about 3 of his equally deadly SOG brothers in arms push their way through ambush-laden, fortified target zones.
To survive as America's first covert ops agents in Call of Duty: Black Ops, you're going to need a quick trigger finger, steady aim, and every ounce of wits you can pull together. Black Ops just might make you think twice about the glory of war and its terrible machines, and appreciate the heart, bravery, and brains of the men who were willing to fight it.
