In the blogging mood - black ops on 360

As per usual I haven't blogged in nearly a year, I always say to myself that I should blog about a recent game. That said, I've decided to be the 10000000th person to talk their experience with  Black Ops.  
To start off I wasn't riding the hype train as most people, I liked the original COD game, I played it heaps on the PC, playing competitive ladder games was great fun back in the day. That was until WoW sunk it's dirty claws into me.  
  
After playing the modern warfare series on 360 last year I decided to jump straight into the single player. I felt that the Cuba mission started with a great tempo, was nice and fast from the opening cutscene, however halfway through the 3rd mission i was thinking that this i the same old game with a different map. I soldiered on and was played through it pretty easily. It was on medium difficulty as i didn't want to cut myself playing on veteran after the bad AI comments I heard online and eventually experienced for myself.
 
By the time I finally reached the WWII stages, i was totally over it and bored. It took effort to go through the cave, the slow pace was starting to irritate me, i just wanted to get through the game at this point. I didn't care for the story or it's characters. I just wanted to finish the game.  I decided to take a break for a while and left it for a day or two.
After the boredom subdued, I powered on and arrived at the Vietnam stealth mission with the water. I loved this mission. This got me back into the game, I was pumped, the sequence where you are under water and grab the 'Charlie's' was amazing as was the sneaking into the village hut section shortly after.   

It then came to me, this is what i wanted, I wanted to play a stealth game, not a splinter cell or metal gear, but call of duty without going against 30+ people at once. A mission similar to cliffhanger in MW2. I did get a taste with the crossbow mission. I enjoyed offing all the patrols before sneaking in and i got an achievement for it. High Five at me!
I  continued on until finishing the game, and boy was it predictable. That's okay though, It was a nice ending especially the JFK zombie section after the credits. Many lolz was had. 

With the game now finished I tried multi-player and felt like a retard fucking a door knob. I guess I will always be a PC FPS gamer at heart and will never have the patience to learn how to utilise a controller like most of the halo/modern warfare kids.  
 
Another year, another COD game finished. 
I wonder what they have install for future games, I hope they change it up.
