If you have COD:BO2 and don't have this one I say get it right away as it gives a little more detail on the characters Mason and Woods during their missions from the 60's to near present day. Still a great game that's part of a entertaining series awaits true gamers.
once you get into the online gaming part of it the game is fun. if you own a ps3 the game still has lag problems similar to MW2, but they aren't as bad ((sometimes on MW2 it was so bad you would "lose control" of your guy and the controls were "overdramatic" (tap the joystick and you would lag to the opposite side of the map)). somedays i get a lot of dropped games (lost connection to host) and restarting the ps3 will help occasionally. if it doesn't you are stuck playing something else till the servers aren't as full. otherwise its ok, generally not as many nube tubers as MW2 had.
the single player is a b**** to beat on veteran (i was able to beat MW2 on veteran and unlocked all the trophies). this game is just hopeless as you will go through sections where hoards of enemies will just attack you (won't lie eventually gave up and beat on recruit).
fun. the only reason i actually bought this game. similar to the zombies of World at War except your characters talk which i find makes the game more hilarious and less "creepy". some people though find the voices to be annoying and i believe they can be turned down/off but unsure since i haven't tried.
I bought the game primarily because I enjoyed MW2 online multiplayer so much, and I didn't discover the awesomeness until I played through the campaign twice. Logically when I bought Black Ops I jumped right into multiplayer mode after a brief moment with the single player mode which seemed... boring. The game is plagued horribly to it's very dumb respawn system which seems to be harder to understand than your significant other. It would spawn the guy you just killed right behind you, spawn 3 enemies in an open area where you just walked away from and clearing, spawn you right in the face of some guy looking straight ahead ready to pull the trigger, spawn you in the middle of crossfire over and over. Sure every respawn system is guilty of all that to a certain degree, but the Black Ops respawn system will consistantly make you jump off your seat of frustration. It is so bad that one would wonder how the game developers can make it so bad after making MW2 good. You simply can't figure out where the game will spawn your enemies and you will never feel like enemies coming in waves, they just spawn everywhere on the map and really kills the fun.
The graphics and sound somehow don't seem to measure up to the MW2 standards either. What's worse is actually the lag on multiplayer mode, and somehow you feel like you're controlling puppets on strings rather than what it's supposed to be on a FPS.
I really wanted to like the game with all my heart. I played it for long enough to try hard enough to find the nice things about this comparing to MW2 but I failed miserably. If you're a COD fan or a MW2 fan hoping to "upgrade" and play a newer game, Black Ops will simply disappoint you badly.
The online is very fun, but VERY VERY glitchy at times. There will be times when me and my friends won't finish a map for well over an hour due to the game booting one of us from the match or the whole game crashing because it can't migrate the host. The online is by far the most buggy online experience I've ever had playing online games and I have played quite a bit.
When the online isn't being glitchy and annoying this ranks up there with some of the most fun I've had online. I do miss an end all killstreak like the Nuke from MW2, but earning Attack Dogs or Gun Ship are pretty fun too.
My personal rankings on a 10 point scale:
Gameplay - 9
Sounds - 5
Graphics - 7 or 8
Replayability - 10
Online - 6
Campaign - Can't rank because I've only played 3-4 missions, which were fun.
