Es gibt eine Menge Spieler, die World at War richtig gut fanden. Ich gehöre nicht dazu. Im Gegenteil, ich hielt Treyarch eigentlich immer für seelenlose Lizenzverwurster, die lediglich uninspirierte Standardware zweiter Klasse produzieren. Die Nutzung der Vergangenheitsform deutet allerdings schon an: Es hat sich was getan. Zum einen schafften es diese ehemaligen B-Entwickler erstmals, in Sachen Ideenreichtum und Spielqualität an Seriengründer Infinity Ward heranzukommen. Zum anderen setzten sie mutig eigene Akzente wie die ungewöhnliche Handlung und legten eine hohe Liebe zum Detail an den Tag. Außerdem gestand Activision ihnen endlich die Zeit und Ressourcen zu, damit dieses Studio aus dem Schatten treten und die Lust am Spielemachen entdecken konnte. Und das merkt man dem Titel deutlich an. Gratulation, Jungs, das ist euer Call of Duty und ihr könnt zum ersten Mal stolz drauf sein!

Mit Call of Duty Black Ops hatte Treyarch zum ersten Mal die vollen zwei Jahre Entwicklungszeit mit dem kompletten Team zur Verfügung. Bereits in den ersten Momenten unserer Call of Duty: Black Ops-Sessions lässt uns das Spiel spüren, dass Black Ops bis ins kleinste Details ausgearbeitet wurde. Call of Duty: Black Ops ist ein fantastisches Gesamtpaket, das sich kein erwachsener Spieler entgehen lassen sollte.

While the single player campaign is a solid, yet inconsistent experience, it's clear that Treyarch now has a firm handle on what makes a great shooter, we would just like to see them build on this strong footing to give us an exemplary one next time.

Do you want to play more Call of Duty? I'm guessing the answer is yes, and by all means, Black Ops is worth playing. But for all its ambitious steps to set itself apart from the previous games, it flounders in a few too many of those areas to be a total success. But the heart of the series--its competitive multiplayer--lives on quite well, which should be enough to satisfy most fans of the franchise.

The singleplayer-mode offers a thrilling storyline, the multiplayer introduces currency and the directing is tighter than a pair of tight jeans in a rainstorm. Bravo!
IGN - 8.5 / 10
Call Of Duty: Black Ops is a classic game of two halves. Perhaps even more so than last year's Modern Warfare 2, the gulf in quality between the two game modes has rarely been as apparent or as exasperating. With Treyarch seemingly content to tread water in the single-player arena, it feels like its focus has been well and truly on ensuring that its multiplayer offering is right up there with the very best. To that end it has succeeded, and thanks to its superb run of Wager Matches, Treyarch has literally raised the stakes. Whether extensive customisation options and inspirational multiplayer makes up for the ragged single player portion is sure to be a subject of controversy in the weeks and months ahead. Maybe next time we'll get the full package...

Does Black Ops' campaign or multiplayer component redefine the Call of Duty series? Not necessarily (at least to all gamers), but it does well to change and evolve the direction, focusing more so on the trials of Alex Mason, as opposed to revolving around a large cast of protagonists. Mason, having much more vocal role in the game, also brings about a much more interesting lead, especially in deciphering what is happening in the confines of his mind. After having played through the campaign multiple times, I can easily say this is my favorite story told in the universe. Black Ops features a few wild plot twists that play out perfectly and bring the game to an outstanding close.

Treyarch opted to make a more story-focused single player, and they've done so with aplomb. They've refined the series' well known multiplayer – fine tuning and balancing to produce an exemplary first person shooter – and may have even unseated Infinity Ward as the premier Call of Duty developer. It's a Royale with cheese. Tasty!

Black Ops is Treyarch at its finest -- when it's not just imitating Infinity Ward or maintaining the COD status quo.
Game-Pad - 9.6 / 10
Black Ops hasn't been hyped as much as MW2 was, but how do they compare? Graphically MW2 is a superior game but the campaign of Black Ops is more intense and well told. Also the MP on Black Ops feels much more balanced and glitch-free at this current time. All the new additions to the MP also give Black Ops the edge. I feel that MW2's Co-Op mode Spec Ops is superior to the zombie mode simply because there was more variety and more content there, however other opinions may differ. Overall I feel Black Ops beats its predecessor in almost every department. It's not perfect, but it's a damn good game.

Black Ops isn't just a good game, it's borderline revolutionary. It might very well might do what Modern Warfare did three years ago for the future of FPSes. It's campaign might not be the best, but it's solid enough that playing through it is fun and what the campaign lacks, the multiplayer and zombie modes more than make up for. The key here is depth, and Black Ops has a metric shit ton of it.
GameInformer - 9 / 10
It's tough to hate on something as skillfully executed as Black Ops. Call of Duty remains the smoothest, most approachable first person shooter out there, and I had a blast playing it. On the other hand, it's disappointing that Treyarch's much hyped huge budget entry in the franchise feels like Modern Warfare 2.5. Activision hasn't Tony Hawked Call of Duty yet, though, and I'm happy to get a refined update. This year anyway.
GamesRadar - 9 / 10
With the hype and excitement surrounding Treyarch's first Call of Duty where they aren't bound by a World War II setting, it's a shame that they went for more of the same MW2. This isn't say it's poor but personally I feel they've missed an opportunity to really stamp their authority with Black Ops. Still, as a complete package with a great story, strong FPS action and a killer multiplayer mode, Black Ops remains unmissable.
Videogamer - 9 / 10
Treyarch isn't trying to reinvent the formula which made Modern Warfare 2 the most successful video game of all time, but it has laid down solid multiplayer foundations while adding a series of necessary and intelligent tweaks - which should be music to the ears of the game's many fans. A spectacular but silly single-player campaign rounds off the package, and while it comes without Modern Warfare 2's ambitious (but unsuccessful) attempt at carving out a political message, Black Ops offers its own thoroughly enjoyable romp through some entertaining set-pieces. I've considered myself a Call of Duty fan for many years, and I've held a deep-seeded distrust of Treyarch since Call of Duty 3. No longer.
Joystiq - 4 / 5
Black Ops is a terrific action game with a solid story and a deep, rewarding multiplayer mode. Sure, when placed up against the other games in the series, players may feel forced to pick favorites -- they may be disappointed that their favorite playlist is gone, deathstreaks are out, or that the Nuke killstreak has been removed (though the Attack Dogs killstreak in its place is really darn funny, and has the benefit of not completely ending the match early). They may challenge each other to figure out which they liked best, or compare sales figures like a high scores on an old arcade machine. But in the end, who cares? We may all be competitive, but when games of the caliber of Call of Duty: Black Ops continue to be released, nobody has to lose.
Eurogamer - 8 / 10
Call of Duty has long since settled into an enormously successful rhythm, and the good news for Activision is that Black Ops does little to disrupt it. The campaign is relentlessly aggressive and spectacular – a Jerry Bruckheimer tribute act stuck in permanent encore – while the multiplayer modes are a mixture of smart tweaks to working formulas, as focused on protecting that guaranteed bottom line as the campaign's yellow objective cursor is on making sure you never falter. The results are never less than entertaining whatever you choose to do, then, but not exactly brave and bold either. Say what you like about No Russian - at least it was something different.
