Call of Duty: Black Ops is a first-person shooter, a seventh installment in the series altogether and a sequel to Call of Duty: World at War. The game takes place during the Cold War and shows different historical periods of it.
The main character is a CIA agent, set out on different classified missions and tasked with eliminating enemies if needed. The story in the game is complicated, featuring characters from the previous games, and historical figures like JFK and Fidel Castro. Despite its emphasis on the scenario and real-world plausibility, Black Ops doesn’t lack in gameplay terms, as the combat system is, as established in series, extensive and realistic. The graphics are made for the player’s highest level of entertainment, with massive special effects and excellent quality of every detail.
Call of Duty: Black Ops features a trademark multiplayer system, with different game modes, competitive play, and cooperative maps. The players can earn ranks for their performance, unlock new customizable weapons and different perks for use in the upcoming battles.

Call of Duty: Black Ops reviews and comments

Call of Duty: Black Ops-a loud Revolution! Even the Announcement Trailers, the Game released in 2010, Announced something special. The 7th Installment of the Call of Duty series was supposed to put the Player in the Role of Alex Mason, who wakes up tied up in a gritty Room and is formally bombed with Questions. The Creators of Kampange have done a really good Job, besides the Modern Warfare triology, the Story of Black Ops is a true Masterpiece on the part of Treyarch and so far probably, in addition to the aforementioned Triology, the best thing Activision ever Has put out. Multiplayer is also a noteworthy Achievement. The Fact that there is an In-game currency that can be purchased exclusively by playing has been a small Revolution in the Call of Duty Branches. The easily changeable Appearance of the Figures caused by the Perks is also an Innovation that has even managed to gain a Foothold in subsequent Parts. The Maps are pretty well implemented and are partly reminiscent of the Storyline. Guns, Perks and Killstreaks Are pretty balanced for the new Call of Duty parts, even if a Helicopter shooter and the self-maneuverable Attack Helicopter are pretty strong. In addition to the aforementioned In-game currency, Golden Weapon Arins cannot be purchased until Prestige 14. However, as well as Essays, Emblems and other Camouflages, they cost Call of Duty Credits (representing the In-game currency). The golden Camouflage costs 50,000 Credits. The maximum Prestige count in Black Ops is 15. For the purchase speaks In Addition to the MW Triology the best Story Of good Playable Multiplayer Official there is hardly Hacks/Cheats On PC running the Multiplayer over Server Multiplayer cards are well implemented weapon/perks are balanced Solid Number of Killstreaks Solid number of W Affenmodifications In-game currency regulates the acquisition of Weapons, Essays, equipment and Camouflages zombie mode offers lots of fun Against buying talks speed level resets admins can Banish a permanently from the Server The higher Killstreaks In part unfair But even in the Context of Bher gameplays, It Is relatively easy To play Personal Conclusion Story: The Story of Black Ops alone should be filmed at some point, because it is quite complex for a Call of Duty. Emotional Depth, Brutality and Action keep the Player happy during the Storyline's completion. Personally, I had never reached a listless low. Multiplayer: The Multiplayer mode Is pretty well implemented. I never felt I had had an unaltable Disadvantage with a lesser level. Every Weapon feels solid in some Ways. The In-game currency makes it a bit harder for Beginners to find into the Game, yet it enriches players to play the Black Ops longer. That the golden Weapon camouflage from Prestige 14 for 50,000 Credits can be purchased is also a nice Gimick, as you have to do something for the gold camouflage and don't just get it for nothing. Remarks: I still like to play the Multiplayer and I'm glad there are still some People who, like me, still play the Game. I hope that At some point Black Ops will be remasterd. Rating 8 out of 10 possible Points. "A lie is a lie. Just because they write it down and call it history doesn't make it the truth. We live in a world where seeing is not believing, where only a few know what really happened. We live in a world where everything you know is wrong.

What a mockery. The multiplayer is very slow and just not playable. I am running the game on an iMac 5K from February 2015 so it will not be the system. Internet connection is also fast (120MB / s) but even at a resolution of 1280x720 the game remains laggy. For 40 I expect a good working game. In addition, you can only play against others who also run the game from a Mac, and there aren't many. I would like my money back.

Too bad, I expected a lot more from this game. On the screenshots it seems a bit, but they are not representative of the actual game at all. I have the latest Mac Pro with a 27 Cinema Display on which the menus do not run full screen. The game itself does not match the presented quality. The details are very poor and despite the high fps the gameplay is poor. Many controls are not assigned by default and you can still adjust that yourself. Furthermore, there is an annoying bug in which my screen resolution goes to default when I adjust another setting. Absolutely not worth the money.

This is more a review of how the game itself runs on a 2012 Macbook pro (because at the time of this writing, it's not officially supported), so I'm basing the grade on how well Call Of Duty performs. I've got a 2012 Macbook Pro, 650M, i7, 4 gigs of ram. Usually I should run this game just fine, but the campaign is a bit of a mess. I haven't spent much time with it, but from what I've experienced, it does slow down noticeably, when there are more things going on. It's obvious that this is a problem with the game itself, and not the hardware, as turning up and down every single setting, does nearly nothing in terms of framerate (what I'm saying is, it's visible that Black Ops is not supported on my Mac). However, Multiplayer does actually run quite well. I can be proud to say that it's running a smooth 30-60 fps when doing good, however, at game start it usually drags down to 5-15 for a couple of seconds. It's not much, but it does happen sometimes, and it can be frustrating, if you're doing good. So if you have a Macbook like mine, I suggest you try it, if you really want to play the game. It runs decently, not perfectly, but manageable without losing too much of what makes it look good. Gets 3 stars for the performance. Able to run with nearly max settings, but does have some noticeably lag issues sometimes, that costs it 2 stars.
