I dropped by my local EB Games after games night at a friend’s place on Monday night, but the lineup was about 100 people, and it just wasn’t moving. So I went home and had a good night’s sleep and picked up Black Ops the next morning. I played Combat Training for the morning, and online multiplayer in the afternoon and evening, and also quickly checked out the local split screen. Here are my thoughts on the game so far. I have reached level 16 and my K/D ratio is about 1.2. I’ll post a part 2 once I’ve had a chance to play multiplayer a lot longer.
I’m not going to go over all the game mechanics. You can read that elsewhere. Instead I’ll focus more on my thoughts of the game.
I like ’em! I really do. There’s not quite enough variety between the maps, and some look very similar to others. But other than that, there’s nothing I can complain about. WoodysGamertag complained that they are all too brown and gray, but I didn’t think that was a problem at all. It’s obvious that these maps were not made by Infinity Ward. Often when I’m traversing a map I’d think “that wouldn’t be in MW2″. (Like rooms with only one entrance.) On the whole, the Treyarch maps feels a lot more like real places instead of set pieces. There are interesting nooks and crannies to explore, and the maps are big enough that it will take a while to learn them all. Well, except for Nuketown, which is Black Ops’ equivalent to Rust. I’m quite pleased with the maps, and I don’t cringe at any map that comes up in the rotation. At least not yet.
The map voting is kinda cool too. You can vote on what to play next. There are three options. You can vote on the next map the game chooses for you, or the map you just played, or some other random map. Even though I don’t understand why people would want to play a map they’ve just played, we still have more options than MW2 gave us.
Once again, Spider-Man is tasked with saving the day, and he sure has his work cut out for him this time. In Spider-man Shattered Dimensions the fabric of reality has been broken during a fight between The Amazing Spider-Man and one of his oldest enemies, Mysterio. During the battle the Mystical tablet of Order and Chaos is shattered due to an ill placed kick by Spidey sending shards of the tablet off into different versions of Spider-Mans reality. The Spider-Men of those realities need to bring all the shards back together before someone finds one of the shards and the limitless power they hold within.
Just a word of warning, I’ll be touching on things that will give away some plot points and some of the enemies in the game.
The approach of splitting the game into four different flavors is a pretty clever way to put different aspects into the gameplay that would not have combined well if it were just taking place in one setting. Each Spidey has strengths and weaknesses requiring variation on how you approach a task or enemy. What works in one universe leads to a quick death in another. As there are four Spider-men, they are voiced by four different actors and each Spidey has a different personalty and sense of humor, some of the jokes are witty and some are duds just like in the comics.
