Call of Duty black Ops single player?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've now finished Modern Warefare 2, Crysis 2 and Bad Company 2 and was wondering if the single player of Black ops is any good as it seems like the next cab off the rank. I got a copy of Home Front and wasn't too pleased with its single player.

So, hows Black Ops in comparison, worth the price for a play through and some MP afterwards?

I would say it's worth ten bucks at most. The SP was a bit random at times, it lagged like hell on light scenes then ran like butter in heavy firefights, and the plot is so dense you need diamond carbide tools to scratch the surface.

None of those games are good for SP lol

Go play something that's known for its SP, such as the elder scrolls series, mass effect series, and so on.

I enjoyed the SP in black ops, it has the same vibe as MW1 and MW2 and I enjoy the MP much better than MW2 seeing as you have dedicated servers. Problem is, I wasnt too fond of the maps but thats just me (I havent been fond of many CoD maps since call of duty 1: United Offensive). Plus you still get problems with finding servers, the server browser sometimes shells out 700+ servers, other times it throw you 20.

I can't remember how long the SP for black ops was but I think it was similar to the modern warfares. The only difference is its done differently. Without spoiling anything, the SP in black ops is more like your character recollecting his past which could be seen as creative or annoying (You sometimes jump out of combat into a small movie scene).

As for if you should get it. Its still 60bucks on steam which kind of sucks. When I first played it, I thought the SP was good but maybe not 60bucks good.

+1 for mass effect
