Call of Duty: Black Ops may not continue the modern guerilla combat motif of the last two blockbuster games, but Treyarch's take on the Cold War still feels incredibly fresh. Taking the role of special forces operative Alex Mason, Black Ops goes into the places previously unseen by the series, like the dense jungles of Vietnam and the war-torn fields of Cuba. On the multi-player side, Black Ops offers a completely reengineered system, with weapons getting as many upgrades as the various soldier classes. Upgrades are more kind to skill, and even new gamers won't get left completely in the dust due to active experience gains. There's even zombies, a Smash T.V. like mini-game, and tons of other explosive amounts of content in the total package. Black Ops may not be Modern Warfare, but it's still a big damn game.
