Call of Duty Black Ops: Review Roundup

Ice T loves the perks of fame.

What are reviewers saying about Call of Duty: Black Ops?

Kobe Bryant & Jimmy Kimmel love Black Ops.

USA Today says "the single-player game is Treyarch's best work and it's as much a thrill ride as the ones previously taken with the more heralded Modern Warfare games."

The UK's Guardian newspaper says "this long-running series of million-selling military shooters is essentially the Inglourious Basterds of the gaming world – a strange, ridiculous, entertaining, fanciful and bloody celebration of man's interest in violence. And it still works. By some considerable margin, Black Ops works."

IGN says the game is "is a white-knuckled action romp that doesn't disappoint."

CNET says "cooperative zombie killing and video editing tools help make Black Ops the most robustly featured game in the franchise, and though you may have expected it to be the case, this is undoubtedly one of the best shooters of the year."

Kotaku says "this is what video games should be, a confusion of interaction and story-telling, of graphics and camera movement, of play and parable."

Does Black Ops live up to the hype? Let us know in the comments once you've fired up your own copy.
