Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike Review - Xbox 360
28 January 2012
Conclusion: Overall the First Strike Map pack for Black Ops is a good package for fans of the game. Each map in the DLC are very well designed and presented. They offers a showcase the versatility of both long range and short range battle, and offers gamers to experience something new. However the $15 price tag for the First Strike is a little steep.
Conclusion: First Strike is a fairly balanced offering, mixing a little something for everyone. It’s a spunky cocktail, ensuring that all of those plug-ins into the COD war machine have their attention set for that little bit longer. It’s very likely that this review will be redundant anyway, given that most of those scratching Jack Russells would’ve already satisfied their insatiable appetite long ago.
Excerpt: Every time a Call of Duty game is about to be released, the video game industry stops and watches. Whether you like it or not, Activision’s multi-million dollar franchise continues to attract everyone’s attention as a new game is being released, despite the claims from quite a few gamers who think the license’s abuse might come back and bite the publisher’s face.
Conclusion: In its own way, Call of Duty: Black Ops II is a virtuoso of its genre and from years of experience ideas begin to shape that should be developed in the future. Black Ops II still wins when compared with Medal of Honor, but the next installment needs to change a lot more to stay relevant.
Pros: Interesting ideas for future weapons, Larger levels, Team play and objective rewarding multiplayer
Cons: Balance issues in multiplayer, The “past” missions in the campaign, Outdated graphics, The AI
Excerpt: Uprising довольно трудно воспринимать как полноценный довесок к мультиплееру Black Ops 2 – по количеству и разнообразию контента это даже не номерные Collection для Modern Warfare 3 (где были сразу и совместные миссии, и карты, и интересное оружие), а лишь приятный повод вернуться в онлайн, если вы вдруг сделали перерыв.
