Set in the 1960s during the Cold War, the game's campaign follows CIA operative Alex Mason as he attempts to recall certain memories in combat in order to locate a numbers station. This station is due to transmit broadcasts to sleeper agents who are bound to use chemical weapons across the United States. Mason and CIA operative Jason Hudson are the game's main playable characters, as well as Red Army soldier Viktor Reznov in only one mission. Locations featured in the game include Cuba, Russia, United States, Kazakhstan, Hong Kong, Laos, Vietnam, and the Arctic Circle. The multiplayer of Black Ops features multiple objective-based game modes that are playable on 14 different maps included with the game. Improvements to loadout options and killstreak rewards are made. A form of virtual currency, COD Points, allows players to purchase weapons and customization options for their in-game character, as well as attachments and customization options for their weapon.

Let's say you die two minutes into a match. You then have to exit back to the menu, then go into the loading area, then drop back into the map. You might spend just as much time loading through to the next match as you do playing it, especially if you drop into busy areas. If you manage to stay alive by avoiding combat, or just stay alive until the end of the match, you'll devote 20 to 25 minutes of your time, and chances are you'll still lose in the end.

I bought this game when i found out it had Bots for offline multiplayer. I dont have GOLD membership, that means i cant play games online. So bots was my only option for multiplayer. This game has 2 modes available for bots TD & DM. The bots play well, very competitive AI. I can hop in to play anytime & have fun. Worth picking up because it will keep you entertained.

Chrysler produced a limited-edition Call of Duty Jeep as the Wrangler is featured in Black Ops.[75] In late September, viral site GKNOVA6 was updated revealing fuzzy footages of zombies.[76] On October 11, a single player trailer aired on ESPN during the New York Jets versus Minnesota Vikings NFL Monday Night Football game.[77] The same trailer was aired the next day in the United Kingdom at half time of the England versus Montenegro 2012 European Football Championship qualifying game. On October 29, the official launch trailer was released online. The same trailer aired on October 31 during the New Orleans Saints versus Pittsburgh Steelers NFL Sunday Night Football game. The trailer features the song "Gimme Shelter" by The Rolling Stones.[78]


The player assumes the role of various characters during the single-player campaign, changing perspectives throughout the story. The playable characters are special forces operatives conducting black operations behind enemy lines. In this way, the player's characters have their own traits such as voices and shadows.[7] Each mission features a series of objectives that are displayed on the heads-up display, which marks the direction and distance towards and from such objectives as it has been in the earlier versions. The player is accompanied by friendly troops throughout the game. Although primarily a first-person shooter, certain levels feature sequences where the player pilots a Hind helicopter and guides friendly troops from a SR-71 Blackbird reconnaissance aircraft.[18][19][20] The campaign features several scripted cinematic moments. One of them is a bullet time effect during the "Victor Charlie" level, activated when the player fires toward the last enemy of a Viet Cong squad.[citation needed]
As the focus of the game is on simulation of the actual battlefield, the gameplay differed from many single-player shooters of the time. The player moves in conjunction with allied soldiers rather than alone; allied soldiers will assist the player in defeating enemy soldiers and advancing; however, the player is given charge of completing certain objectives. The game places heavy emphasis on usage of cover, suppressive fire, and grenades. AI-controlled soldiers will take cover behind walls, barricades, and other obstacles when available.
Call of Duty: Black Ops features Vietnam War era music including "Sympathy for the Devil" by The Rolling Stones[65] (played during a gameplay sequence, the credits, and as an easter egg in the multiplayer map Nuketown) and Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son".[66] Eminem's "Won't Back Down" (featuring Pink) is used for the credits as well, and additionally appears as an Easter Egg in the Zombie map "Five". In the Call of the Dead zombie map the song "Not Ready to Die" by American heavy metal band Avenged Sevenfold is featured as an easter egg.[67] The original music was composed by Sean Murray, who also composed Call of Duty: World at War while Kevin Sherwood composed music for the Zombies mode. The soundtrack was released on November 9. The use of The Rolling Stones' music in the game has seen a significant increase in the band's music sales since launch. "Gimme Shelter" sold 2,000 copies in the week before the launch trailer was revealed, 5,000 the week after, and 11,000 the week after the game's release. "Sympathy for the Devil" experienced a similar boost as gamers discovered the band's music.[citation needed]

No Campaign, some brave soul actually did it and decided that hey we don’t need a campaign. While it must be disappointing for all 3 people who play the campaign. I must applaud them as Black Ops 3 had the worse campaign of any Call of Duty game ever. In my circle of friends and associates I was the only one who ended up beating it. Not Good. So doing what needs to be done and axing the campaign is a positive in my book as it gets them to focus on.
Maps. Only 4 in the rotation that I can tell and, while this means less variety, it does help you get accustomed to the maps. Yes, it's repetitive (and I hate the mountain map), but it gives me a chance to work with my buddies to develop strategies of attack and defense. Levelution is still going strong; every building in the play areas are destructible. They do need to work on vaulting over some broken buildings, climbing certain walls, and clipping through a wall when healing, but overall it doesn't break the immersion too much.
Vehicles. I haven't personally flown or driven anything yet other than the little tank-bike to get from point to point, but tanks feel remarkably less threatening than BF1. In a way, I find this to be a good thing as a tank sitting on a point with 3-4 players with anti-tank weapons can make short work of it, but perhaps they could get a little armor boost (imho). Airplanes are airplanes. If they drop bombs on you, you're SOL. I can't attest to air combat, but when I hear planes in the air, I haven't had too much experience getting erased by them when we have friendly planes in the sky.
Zombies, Treyarch’s Zombies return the original studio to do zombies back at world at war 10 years ago and they never stop being the best call of duty zombies developers. Some people might only be interested in the Zombies mode. We get the returning Aether Story and a brand new story and characters the biggest zombies launch with three maps. Four with the Black Ops Pass. It’s not for everyone solo players might have trouble with the learning curve of all the mechanics and solving the easter eggs. But if you have a buddy or two you can’t go wrong with Zombies. I had an absolute blast playing with my friends and solving the easter eggs. Treyarch has the best zombies hands down Black Ops 4 is no exception.
A single such activity may be called a black bag operation;[1] that term is primarily used for covert or clandestine surreptitious entries into structures to obtain information for human intelligence operations.[4] Such operations are known to have been carried out by the FBI,[5] CIA,[6] Mossad, MI6, ASIS, COMANF, DGFI, RAW, MSS, KGB, FSB, DGSE and the intelligence services of other nations.[4]
A zombie cooperation mode, titled "Zombies", is included in the game. Originally featured in World at War, it was revamped to be included in Black Ops.[33] It is a four-player online and two-player split screen co-op mode (which can also be unlocked online). Based on the original game, in the map "Five", players take the roles of John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Robert McNamara, and Fidel Castro as they fight zombies at The Pentagon.[34][35] Another map, called "Kino der Toten" ("Cinema of the Dead" in German), features the characters from World at War – Edward Richtofen the German, Tank Dempsey the American, Takeo Masaki the Japanese, and Nikolai Belinski the Russian. Limited editions of the game offer graphically-enhanced versions of the four zombies maps from World at War, featuring the newer weapons from the rest of the game.[36] There is an unlockable top-down, two-stick arcade-shooter version of Zombies known as Dead Ops Arcade.[37]
The online multiplayer mode of Black Ops usually revolves around two teams on a specific mission. For example, in Team Deathmatch the team with the most kills wins, while in Capture the Flag, players take the other team's flags and return it to their own base. Additionally, there is Free For All in which players aren't separated into teams. Not including Downloadable maps, there are 14 different maps.

Having spent over a year imprisoned, Mason and Reznov spark an uprising to flee the gulag, but only Mason manages to escape. On November 10, 1963, Mason meets with President John F. Kennedy, who authorizes a mission to assassinate Dragovich; Mason briefly envisions aiming a handgun at Kennedy. Mason, Woods, Bowman, and Weaver are dispatched to the Baikonur Cosmodrome to disrupt the Soviet space program and eliminate members of "Ascension", a Soviet program giving sanctuary to Nazi scientists in exchange for their knowledge. The team destroys the Soyuz spacecraft, while Woods apparently kills Dragovich in a car explosion with a commandeered BTR.
Suffice to say, Call of Duty: WWII feels like the better value to me. It came with fewer MP maps, but it had three War Mode Operations and a single-player campaign. And although the game had some rocky beginnings, it was vastly improved by the time Black Ops 4 released. It's almost a shame that a game as solid as WWII only had one real year of support. I would love to see more MP maps and Operations released into 2019.

We are now in what was supposed to be the debut weekend of Battlefield V, EA’s sequel to Battlefield 1 in one of the series’ most baffling naming decisions yet. But wisely EA chose to stay out of the middle of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 last week and Red Dead Redemption 2 this coming week, and instead delayed Battlefield V to November 20 instead, a somewhat less competitive date, though their reason given was that they just wanted more time to polish the game.
