Call of Duty: Black Ops is closing in fast, there’s no doubt about that. It has long been an unspoken rule that you should ‘miss every other Call of Duty title’, simply because they haven’t been able to compete with the Infinity Ward offerings. Black Ops looks set to tear that rule to shreds.
Treyarch are going into overdrive, attempting to convince gamers that Black Ops will be worth their hard-earned dollars. Judging by the quality of the trailers and screens, as well as the idea that Black Ops will be “fresh but familiar“, I think it’s safe to say that Treyarch have achieved their goal.
Some gamers will argue that Modern Warfare 2 was a bitter disappointment, failing to live up to their monumental expectations after Call of Duty 4. Me? I thought Modern Warfare 2 was a great game, and I felt that comparing it to another was unnecessary — after all, I’m playing this one now, why should I worry about any others?
Surprisingly, since its initial announcement back in April 2010, Black Ops has been attracting a lot of positive buzz, perhaps most notably because of its apparent shift into a more modern era. Looking at the images below, it’s refreshing to see a landscape other than a war-torn World War 2-era America/Russia/Japan. I know I’m in the minority when I say that I actually enjoy playing through the Call of Duty campaigns, and the apparent amount of variety is incredibly exciting.
Check out the screens below.
I’m sure we can all agree that they look pretty amazing. However, if that’s not enough for you, be sure to head over the to next page, where we have even more Call of Duty: Black Ops screens for you to enjoy.
