Official Nintendo Magazine awarded the Wii version 90% and said "Black Ops on Wii is a fantastic shooter packed with all the features of its HD brothers, with the only exception being split-screen multiplayer."[138] Martin Gaston at VideoGamer.com gave the Wii version 6 out of 10, complaining of Treyarch's reworking of in-game sequences as movies, poor AI, and gameplay problems from lower-resolution graphics.[117]
Call of Duty: Zombies is a first-person shooter video game developed by Ideaworks Game Studio, and published by Activision for iOS. It is a spin-off of the Call of Duty series, and based on the "Nazi Zombies" mode of Call of Duty: World at War. A sequel for the iPhone and iPod Touch includes Shi No Numa that was originally released on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.[citation needed]
The United States ushered in a new era of space-based warfare with the launch of the O.D.I.N. (Orbital Defense Initiative) space station. The ODIN station was armed with a battery of sophisticated kinetic projectile launchers. The ODIN’s weapon systems were designed to drop tungsten rods from orbit with pin-point precision. One rod hit was equivalent to the detonation of a small tactical nuclear warhead.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is the next title in Activision’s illustrious FPS series. It is set between the events of Black Ops 2 and 3, but marks a huge departure for Call of Duty in that it’s the first entry to not feature a traditional campaign. In its place is a battle royale mode called Blackout, which joins the core multiplayer and zombies mode to make it the most multiplayer-focused COD yet.
Maps, they better than Call of Duty World War 2 but that’s a low bar. My main issue with the maps is there is a heavy reliance on the classic maps of Call of Duty black ops 1&2. There good maps but they could also try to make better maps or make there own classics. Even at the time of this review they released two new free maps Firing Range nighttime and Nuketown Russian edition. Of course the new maps are borders between okay and bad so the reliance of classic maps is a necessary evil of sorts. Still relying on past games can only get you so far.
Firstly, the maps. While it definately had some stinkers, Battlefield 1 had a fair number of great maps. Even at launch the maps never felt to repetitive. This only improved over the lifespan of the game as entire sets of maps, all themed after a front from ww1, were added. We even got a few maps themed after the Russian revolution which was a nice addition. Personally, over Somme was my favorite. Now let’s look at Battlefield V. Battlefield V launched with a comparable number of maps but their actual quality are debatable. I know this was the case for a few in BF1 but it is moreso an issue in BFV. I think it is safe to assume that a fair number of people in the Battlefield community dislike fjell 625, Narvik, and Hamada. That’s 3 out of the 8 maps that aren’t well suited to the gameplay that most people will be utilizing.
I got this game originally when it came out, but the hardened edition which I sold, but I got this game again. Let's all come to terms with the truth. Call of Duty gets worse every year, it's the same garbage forced down our throats, and I refuse to ever buy one again. HOWEVER, the thing about Black Ops that sets it aside from Modern Crapfare series, is the addition of the Zombies mode. Zombies itself is worth buying this game for. If you have friends to play with, it never gets boring.
The Allies retaliate in DLC Pack 3 for Call of Duty®: WWII – United Front. Experience the dramatic drive toward Berlin across three new Multiplayer maps: Stalingrad, Market Garden, and Monte Cassino. Armor up and push across North Africa in a new objective-based War Mode mission: Operation Supercharge. Plus, join new heroes in a unique Nazi Zombies experience.
Call of Duty was developed by Infinity Ward, a new studio formed in 2002 originally consisting of 21 employees, many of whom were project lead developers of the successful Medal of Honor: Allied Assault released the same year. Led by Chief Creative Officer Vince Zampella, development began in April 2002, and the team grew to 27 members by May 2003. Using an enhanced version of the id Tech 3 game engine developed for Quake III Arena and an in-house skeletal animation system called "Ares", Infinity Ward set out to develop a new World War II-era video game that, unlike many of its predecessors, placed more emphasis on squad-based play with intelligent assistance from teammates during large-scale battles. The team also extensively researched weapons, artillery, and vehicles from World War II to enhance the authenticity of animation and sounds used throughout the game.[4]
For the first time in the series, clips from online gameplay can be recorded. Some specific features that have been removed from the PC version of Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 return, such as lean,[27] mod tools, the developer console[28] and dedicated servers.[29] Dedicated servers are exclusively provided by Game Servers.[30] Steam is the exclusive platform for Black Ops on PC, and the game is protected by Valve Anti-Cheat.[31]
Next, the class balance. This ones gonna be controversial so bear with me. In its current state much of the class balance in Battlefield V is broken. I know some of it is going to be fixed but there are some issues that will remain. We all know that the medic class is shit in its current state. It manages to fall short in pretty much every category that isn’t hip fire. While this class is getting a buff I still feel that a rifle of some sort, such as the G43 or at least the M1 carbine would greatly benefit the class. My biggest concern for this game’s class balance is the assault class which, in its current state, can dominate both close range, medium range, and long range engagements. The TTK for assault weapons seem just a tad quick, but that could very well just be me.
Black Ops is back! Featuring gritty, grounded Multiplayer combat, the biggest Zombies offering ever with three full undead adventures at launch, and Blackout, where the universe of Black Ops comes to life in a massive battle royale experience. Blackout features the largest map in Call of Duty history, signature Black Ops combat, and characters, locations and weapons from the Black Ops series.
Sixteen years after Battlefield 1942 changed the landscape of competitive first-person shooters with its large-scale land/air/sea battles, the series returns to its original setting with Battlefield V. We fully expect to revisit some of the iconic World War II battles of that landmark title in due time, but rather than simply recreate a greatest hits of big moments from the war, launch content takes players to rarely discussed locations like Norway to recreate battles seldom seen in film or video games.
It was announced on November 9, 2015 that Black Ops would become backwards compatible with the Xbox One.[53] It was originally meant to be available for backwards compatibility in December 2015, but the date was later changed to some time in 2016.[54] Black Ops was originally the sixth-most requested Xbox 360 title to become backwards compatible with the Xbox One.[55] On May 17, 2016, the game was made available through Xbox One's backward compatibility.[56] Shortly after, it was reported that sales of the Xbox 360 version had increased by 13,000 percent.[57]

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.
Call of Duty: World at War, developed by Treyarch, is the fifth installment of the main series. Released after Modern Warfare, it returns to the World War II setting of earlier titles,[23] featuring the Pacific theater and Eastern front. The game uses the same proprietary game engine as Call of Duty 4 and was released for the PC, PlayStation 3, Wii, Xbox 360 consoles and the Nintendo DS handheld in North America on November 11, 2008, and November 14, 2008 in Europe. As of June 2009, Call of Duty: World at War has sold over 11 million copies.[24] It acts as a prologue for Treyarch's next game, Black Ops, which is in the same universe, sharing characters and story references.[25][26]
Co-chairman General James L. Jones is a former U.S. National Security Advisor.[66] Founder Robert Kotick is the CEO of Activision Blizzard. Upon its founding in 2009, the organization announced a commitment to create thousands of career opportunities for veterans, including those returning from the Middle East.[67] Annual awards given by the endowment include the “Seal of Distinction,” a $30,000 initial grant given to selected veteran's service organizations.[68] In November 2014, the endowment launched the “Race to 1,000 Jobs” campaign to encourage gamers to donate money to and get involved in organizations that provide veterans with services.[69] As of 2015, the Call of Duty Endowment had provided around $12 million in grants to veterans' organizations in the United States, which has helped find jobs for 14,700 veterans.[70]
Get early access to Battlefield V with Battlefield V Deluxe Edition and experience how war will never be the same. With exceptional outfits and assignments for the British Special Air Service and the German Airborne troops, Battlefield V Deluxe Edition will make you stand out on the battlefield with five sets of paratrooper apparel containing weapon skins, camo patterns, head gear, and face paint. 
Development for the game began in 2009. It runs an enhanced version of the IW 3.0 engine used in Treyarch's past title, World at War.[8] The improvements made allowed for bigger campaign levels to be made as well as enhanced lighting. Treyarch focused specifically on Black Ops during development; they were developing two games at once while making World at War. Different teams within the company focused on a certain game mode. Music was composed by Sean Murray, with music by The Rolling Stones, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Eminem and Avenged Sevenfold appearing in the game. Marketing of the game began in April 2010. Multiple trailers promoting the game and its modes were released from May until October.

Zombies will also include a new arcade mode called Rush, it’s the same co-operative structure but leans more on friendly competition. The more undead you kill the more points you earn – a leaderboard keeps track of everybody’s score so you know who’s in the lead. The inspiration for Rush comes from Grief mode back in Black Ops 2, this arcade mode will be in the same spirit but have a more casual and friendly vibe.
War Mode was a real gem. I wrote at the time that it should become a staple in all future Call of Duty releases. And I like to imagine how much fun it would be had Treyarch included it in Black Ops 4. Imagine these multi-stage, objective-based Operations but playing out with Black Ops 4's various Specialists and their special abilities, plus the full gamut of modern arsenal. It'd be a match made in heaven, and certainly more fun and interesting than Blackout. Then again, I'd rather not have it replace Blackout entirely---after all, we don't have solo campaign in Black Ops 4. If anything, a Black Ops 4 War Mode should be included on top of everything else. What a great game that would have been.
Battlefield: Bad Company, released in 2008, followed "B" Company's escapades and their search for hidden gold. This new Battlefield game had a variety of vehicles for land, air and sea. It had a new destruction system that allowed the player to break and destroy environments, based on a new game engine named Frostbite, which replaced the Refractor engine used in earlier releases (with the exception of Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, which used RenderWare).

I'll start off with this because it's short and it's my personal opinion on their choice in cosmetics. I'm happy to say the prosthetic limb is gone along with anything that doesn't really fit the WW2 mold, but they've still kept in some of the rugged appearances to give players a unique look. I can't really fault this because it is a video game and many players like having a way to distinguish themselves on the battlefield. The base cosmetics each have a "camo" you can unlock by completing challenges and you don't buy them. There are cosmetics you can purchase in store, but the looks you can unlock hail from the days of Red Tiger camo in CoD Modern Warfare 1 when it was an achievement. There's not a ton to choose from at the moment, but I imagine as the game continues on, we'll get more of a wardrobe.


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.
After reading the one star reviews I felt it nessessary to clear some things up and some intelligence to the discussion. First off anyone saying this game is a re-skin is very far off. This game feels completely revamped however still familiar to the series. It's a game in the battlefield series and will have similar gameplay because that's what the fans want. I can promise you though the graphics have been completely overhauled, the sniper class is smoother and the guns feel and operate very different than previous battlefield games because of the WW1 setting. This is certainly not a simple re-skin.
Also, a note to our South American Blackout players: We’re currently testing a Featured Playlist-only setup on consoles to ensure more players in the region are able to join fuller matches with solid pings. Thanks for your patience as we continue to evaluate various solutions to deliver the best experience possible for Blackout players in this region, and please continue to give us your feedback here and on Twitter (@Treyarch and @TreyarchPC).

Blackout, like all battle royales, rewards patience above all else. You patiently loot. You wait for the circle to constrict. You camp and get the jump on other players. You do all you can to survive, because the only way to win is to be the last player/duo/quad standing. When you die you can exit back to the menu and join a new match, but even that is tedious compared to the normal pace of Call of Duty matches.
