This game is it! Finally a game that is a compromise for the hardcore and casual players. Online the guns have recoil and the hitboxes (places where you have to shoot to get a hitmarker) are finally downgraded from MW2 where they would often drag around the player. This game has gotten so many bad reviews from players who think they know what a good fps game is. In MW2 people would often camp and gain massive killstreaks just by getting another killstreak reward with another one! No, this is not ok! In black ops killstreaks don't count towards another killstreaks. Ok so the game needs skill to be played online. Sound world is now finally REALISTIC!! It's not this MW2 hollywood s**t! Finally explotions have a stiff and realistic bang. All underaged MW2 kids say that soundworld is awful. Well now it's realistic! This game is not meant for kids and is rated Mature for a reason. And at the end I have to say that ALL of the pro gamers say this is THE COD game just next to the original MW! So if you want laser rifles with 13 year old kids camping and raping people with nukes, go for MW2. If you want a game that reguires more skill than luck with realistic soundworld, go for black ops!
Also, the campaign is SO much deeper than MW2 with all the twists and has a really amazing storyline. More movie/documentary like than any other. There are only 3 games to buy this year: Black Ops, AC Brotherhood and GT5!
