As I open up my present and what surprise do I see? Yeah, Black Ops for the PS3 console. Yeahhhhh Budddddy!
I open up and played it, and from first impressions thought it was pretty awesome. The graphics are real fresh, characters look good and I dig the environment. But I have to say, this game reminded me of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Las Vegas. The look and feel match up to it very well. Now, I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing to you personally, but it was a pleasant surprise to me.
If you are looking to go back into the old war days, you got your wish. This game basically takes place in 1961, basically the Bay of Pigs era. And you definitely can tell that they tried to make this game seem like a secret top mission with the black out words and secret coding in some of the titles (Which I found real impressive).
What I really like so far, is that this game has more of a “Story” then the Modern Warfare series. It’s not just missions clogged up together, they have a well thought up strategy. Which I love.
The cutscenes are well-done and the game play is excellent. Well, it was a bit readjusting for me because I normally play shooting type games on XBOX 360. But, I’m quickly getting the hang of it.
So, my first impressions is positively good. As long as they keep this route I know that I will enjoy it. I will be posting a review right after I finish the game. So be on the look out for it.
I hope you all had a very good Christmas!
