Game Profile

Call of Duty tackles a whole new era as Black Ops plunges you into the murky height of the Cold War and history's most secretive battles. The world's most popular first person shooter places you in the most dangerous conflict zones of the late '60s.

From the jungles of Vietnam to the snowy wastes of the Ural mountains, you and your team must operate behind enemy lines and using only the limited technology of the time. Luckily this includes air support such as the SR-71 Blackbird stealth plane, as well as deadly attack helicopters and armoured personnel carriers.

Like any Call of Duty game the multiplayer will set the standard for all other console games, with enhanced customisation tools, playable vehicles and a revamped scoring system.

Key Features

  • Retro Warfare: Call of Duty explodes the myths of the Cold War as you join a team of Black Ops soldiers caught up in the fight against communism in Vietnam and beyond.
  • Ammu-Nation: Use new special ammo including an explosive crossbow, Dragon's Breath flame rounds for your shotgun and a range of other period weapons.
  • Twisted Metal: Take the controls of the iconic SR-71 Blackbird as you direct operations from high above or jump into an attack chopper in Vietnam for some close-up action.
  • Online Perks: Create-a-Class 2.0 customisation tool lets you personalise your online battles even more, with new perks and revamped rules for killstreaks.

GammaGames said:

this game is so fun! It's missing a few features (unlockable Zombie maps, but there's zombies, so dont worry) and emblem editor. Red dot customization, uhh, i dont think it has valkarie rockets either. That's all Ive found! I'm lvl 26, when I get to 33, i can buy my crossbow with explosive arrows




ok question of the day is, Is the black ops first strike updates coming out for the wii?



TK-421 said:

D... L... C!!! They have it for "Just Dance 2"! If Nintendo wants my $$ for the next COD game, they better stand up to Treyarch/Activision & get us some MAPS! Otherwise, I'm going back to being a 360 player. :/

This game is good my favorite best game ever played. The only thing i dont like about the game is that it broke my wii. Treyarch should of took there time for problems and should of tested it before rushing to throw the game out there like that.
