Excerpt: Call of Duty: Black Ops for the DS doesn't surprise in the graphics department. It's a 3D shooter that reminds you more of Wolfenstein 3D than, well, Call of Duty . It still gets the point across, there's just not much in the way of detail.

Cons: And still repeatedly dying because of the slow aiming, Having to memorize level layouts and enemy placement, Muddy graphics and pixelated enemies at any distance, Takes a lot of effort to get online and stay there, Vehicular sequences
