Having just completed the singleplayer campaign on Black Ops twice (second time to collect all the intel)
I just want to say that I NEVER want to play another single player mission again, ANY, NOT a single mission...
This is coming from a gamer that has played through the campaigns of all the previous games upto 5 times on multiple difficulties
The story was so bland, even for a call of duty game (which I know isn't know isn't the best place to find GREAT stories). I like the fact that they gave a voice to the played character but did they have to choose Sam Worthington? His dosier says he's an american but yet his accent is all over the place, you can hear Sam's aussie accent, slipping in and out all the time.
And they had to use Gary Oldman's annoying voice TWICE!?
However I did find Ed Harris to be a good pick for the character, however his story not so much.
The press <button> to <insert action here> parts were just plain bad....
MAJOR PROBLEMThe AI was the worst I've ever seen for BOTH sides of the battlefield, I've been killed so many times following a sqaudmates (like the game instructs you to do) and have a enemies that IGNORES the friendly (that also is IGNORING said enemy) shoot and kill me instead.
The "flashbacks" were annoying, seriously what a way to break the flow of game-play than to have short unskippble that does absolutely nothing but disrupt said flow.
I love the return of the infinite respawning soldiers and grenades, the Kahn San Level is absolutely a nightmare.
The real only enjoyable moments?
The helicopter parts were a nice addition but that's about it
The only thing that stands out among all the other CODs that impressed me a lot, were the extras, the computer terminal and the offline combat "simulator"
I know some people would say that SP campaigns have never been CODs strong point but I bet some would agree this is probably the weakest single player campaign of the series
