Call of Duty: Black Ops Rezurrection Map Pack (Xbox360)
31 August 2011
Excerpt: Following on the heels of Call of Duty: Black Ops’ previous map packs, First Strike, Escalation, and Annihilation, comes Rezurrection (did anyone else notice the first letters of the map pack titles spell out F.E.A.R?). For many, the sad news is that Rezurrection will be the final map pack released for Call of Duty: Black Ops, but the happy news is if you felt there weren’t enough zombie maps to play on before, this time around it’s all about zombies – Nazi Zombies,...
Conclusion: These maps are pretty impressive and very well-designed. They range in size from small to large, and contain a lot of unique details. If you are considering expanding your Black Ops experience, the Annihilation Map Pack is the way to go.
Excerpt: Treyarch gets a bad wrap for being the developer responsible for the non-Infinity Ward Call of Duty games. Sure, both of the Modern Warfare games are considered pinnacles of the current generation’s first-person shooter genre, but that doesn’t mean that Treyarch’s efforts ( Call of Duty 3, Call of Duty: World at War ) are any less worthwhile.
Summary: As the first Call of Duty game since the split between mega publisher Activision and the talented team at Infinity Ward, there was a lot riding on the back of Black Ops . Could Call of Duty as we know it continue to exist even without the original partnership that produced the best titles in the franchise? The short answer to that is yes.
Excerpt: Human nature suggests that we should be sick of Call of Duty by now. Black Ops is the series’ sixth game in as many calendar years on Xbox 360, and we’d be well within our rights as gamers to not care about it anymore. But just as this brand reinvented itself once already with Modern Warfare, Black Ops marks another metamorphosis.
Pros: + Glorious, reinvigorated multiplayer modes., + Intense, varied campaign., + Oodles of extras like Theater mode, Dead Ops Arcade, and Zork.
Cons: ? How long until the first documented case of Call of Duty gambling addiction hits the news?
Summary: Well it’s that time of year again: another Call of Duty and another wad of cash for Activision. As most of you should know this year’s title is named Black Ops and was developed by Treyarch, the team behind World at War, but does it live up to the hype and can it follow the huge success of Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2?
Conclusion: Treyarch has finally done it: it has matched Infinity Ward, beating it at its own game. The trouble is that from here on in there’s the constant danger of the law of diminishing returns. Black Ops is much more deserving of the hype beast than Modern Warfare 2 ever was, but where can the franchise go from here?
Conclusion: Das neueste Call of Duty vom Entwickler Treyarch weiss zu überzeugen. Der Einzelspielermodus ist bombastisch inszeniert mit Nonstop Action angefüllt. Die Story ist zwar nicht das Highlight, weiss aber mit einem überaschenden Finale zu verblüffen. Endlich schafft es Treyarch nicht nur aus dem Schatten von Activision raus, sondern ist es meiner Meinung nach besser als der Vorgänger Modern Warfare 2 aus dem Hause Activision.
