I never thought I’d be saying this, but the next game in the Call of Duty franchise really needs no introduction. Now that the series dominates the sales charts of the west, Call of Duty: Black Ops has arrived with a (flash)bang. Having already pushed 300 million dollars plus units sold, Activision’s new flagship franchise didn’t change the formula too much and that’s exactly what people wanted. If you’re a fan of the series, it’s time to ask yourself if a series of multiplayer updates and the return of zombies are worth the $59.99 price tag.

The multiplayer is all about unlocking new toys and ways to make your opponents miserable, and kill streaks are greatly rewarded. This encourages a more passive style of play, but unlike the Medal of Honor series, it’s pretty much impossible to snipe from the same spot over and over again due to the Killcam, which reveals your location to your killer through your scope’s perspective as they lie there lamenting walking between your crosshairs.
