Call of Duty: Black Ops
Gamescom 2010: Call of Duty: Black Ops Preview - War Is (Not) Hell
Written By
View author's profile
“There’s no time like the present” goes the famous saying and for Call of Duty’s number two developer, Treyarch, there really is no time like the present. With the catastrophic goings-on hogging the airwaves over at Infinity Ward, following "the biggest entertainment release of all time", it’s perfect timing for the developer to put its mark on the map. With tepid additions to the Call of Duty franchise for quite a few cycles now, with all of their 250 strong development team focused on Black Ops, the 3 game a year developer seems a far cry away. This is it this year for Treyarch and after checking out one of the single player missions at Gamescom, it seems like putting all their eggs in one basket could turn out to be quite a shrewd move.

'Victor Charlie' is the mission and stealth ops in South-East Asia is the name of the game. Picking up proceedings along the banks of the Huong River in Vietnam, the spec ops team are investigating the alleged involvement of a Soviet general in the region and judging by the opening minutes alone, Treyarch have taken a leaf out of the Infinity Ward playbook by going for big Hollywood moments and epic set-pieces.

“Mayday, may…!” screamed the chopper pilot, with his last scream for help cut short when the ambushed chopper came crashing into the Huong River with a mighty thud. As water seeped into the fast-sinking bird, the ambush continued to overwhelm the downed crew as the situation dawned on them. Behind enemy lines, Sgt. Mason and the crew desperately flailed as the urgency of the situation crept in and two quick headshots later with the handgun and the spec ops team were leaving the debris behind and swimming for safety. Even the swim away reeked of Call of Duty’s bombastic Hollywood representation of war as bullets fizzed past the crew who used the river to mask their getaway.

After the chaotic beginning, the special ops team reassembled and planned their next assault - a small village a few clicks away. Passing through the green shrubbery that covered the crew’s way in, it’s clear that Treyarch has really paid a lot more attention to detail this time around, as the picturesque waterfall and swinging canopy was almost enough to distract you from the job at hand. Just looking at the drab, overcast day, you knew that rain wasn’t far away and right on cue, the heavens open.

In true Call of Duty fashion, the team - which had since split up - surrounded a couple of Vietnamese soldiers that took up a patrol position on a small dock, just slightly down from the village. As if by magic, two of Mason’s fellow spec ops team emerged from the water to slit the throats of the two soldiers before them, meaning the coast was clear for the squad to regroup.

With a new plan of action, Mason headed underwater to place the Semtex H he had just received from one of the squad members on an underwater structure, ready to detonate to provide an explosive distraction for them once they had moved up into their next position.

Sneaking through the small settlement - slightly down from their previous position - carefully avoiding the cockerels on the way, Mason slipped through the window, to avoid detection. A quick couple of brutal takedowns with the knife later - dispatching the guard while he slept and another one who stood guard - the squad passed through the settlement and out to the long grass the other side.

“Mason, let’s see what the Semtex can do,” instructs your squadron leader, urging the soldier to create the distraction so they can infiltrate the village. Silent infiltration is no longer an option as the explosion goes off and Mason and co. flood into the village to take on the swarms of local troops. Flicking between the rocket launcher and the sniper rifle, the crew make short work of the troops on the ground in an intense firefight. With AA placements dotted around, it was up to Mason to take them down, allowing for the back up chopper to come in and lay some fire down.

The intense firefight continues, that is until the chopper comes in and offers some much needed cover fire. Moving through the village, the enemy’s numbers are thinning and the chaos starting to subside. Clearing a hole with a grenade, Mason, Reznov and Swift proceed into the tunnels.

As the pair progress through the dank tunnels, passing severed feet, the haunting echo of enemy soldier’s voices, cockroaches, rats and a plethora of dripping water along the way, the focus of the action switches back to the more stealth-orientated ops. Rather than spoil how the mission ends and what happens to who, it’s probably something best experienced yourself. Suffice it to say, the tunnels are rife with danger and the squad are up against it to come out of that situation alive. In other words, someone’s going to die!

Victor Charlie is essentially a mission that starts off chaotically, before settling as the crew silently infiltrates the village, before exploding with action once again. If there’s anything that Treyarch have nailed in Black Ops, that’s the pacing.
It’s not just the pacing though that Treyarch have got spot on, but everything outside of that reminded me of last year’s Infinity Ward smash hit, Modern Warfare 2. Whether you’re talking about the attention to detail as the crew dragged themselves through the underground tunnels or the over-the-top epic set-pieces, it seems as if leaving World War II behind has not only freed Treyarch’s arm to really embrace the creative direction, but also allowed them to possibly surpass anything they’ve ever done to date. To say first impressions are positive is probably selling the Gamescom demo short, but one thing’s for certain, if they can keep up that intensity for the whole campaign, then I suspect many of the masses will be saying “Infinity Ward who?” come this Christmas.

And this is coming from someone who’s been supremely underwhelmed by everything Treyarch has done since Spider-Man 3.

Call of Duty: Black Ops is scheduled for a November 9th, 2010 worldwide release.

Gonna stick with REACH and New Vegas for this fall, such better games that give so much more back to the fans (15 bucks for 4 maps that were already in cod 4, what a waste of money, Activision are sucking the money out of all those persons pockets who should experience better games). IW and Activision suck compared to companies like EPIC, BUNGIE, Bethesda and Ubisoft (because of Uni Montreal). No one can deny that

@ #20...I can deny that simply because I don't like those games. I personally wasn't pissed about the map packs being older maps. They were better than most of the newer maps anyways. I have the Halo games, but don't enjoy them nearly as much. It's all about opinion and taste really. I didn't get the hype behind Fallout 3 and sure as hell didn't like ODST compared to Halo 3. I pretty much like most games as long as the experience isn't ruined by the internet warriors trying to pick fights over an internet connection. Microsoft really needs to weed out these clowns. No one cares that you're drunk and angry that you're a loser in real life, ya know? And COD is overrun with those characters. Besides that, seems like a good year coming up for everyone.

Fucking awesome. Preordered hardened long time ago. No doubt single will be one of the most epic experiences this year as every year. Couldn't care less for multiplayer as campaing alone is worth $60. Not sure if it can top MW2 story as I had goose bumps oftentimes (a lot to do with main character's dying;-(), but I have all the faith in Treyarch!

And how the fuck can you say all COD games are the same if each and every one of them has different story and mostly different characters and different time spans... Moronic much???

As much as I loved Call Of Duty in the past, I don't think I will be spending my money on this one. Too much emphasis on the multiplayer and when there are people out there that cant play the game without modded controllers or lag switches it kinda ruins the experience.

@29 While not completely agreeing, I can see how this is a valid point. Not sure what the context was, but HALO has fake purple blood and no gore whatsoever. I don't recall anyone swearing in the campaigns either. While on the other hand you have COD with tons of blood, dismemberment and swearing... Don't forget that some of the games have been banned in more strict countries just because of actual blood in the game when shooting/slicing someone... While CoD games get R rating the worst Halo could get is T...

@33 The blood is justified, you're fighting aliens. You can see red blood in multiplayer or if you betray Marines. And no gore? Have you ever meleed a Flood, especially the human ones? They come apart. The only dismemberment I've seen in CoD is in WaW. The lack of swearing is just something Bungie decided on, and I can't say it's a bad thing. Games don't need swearing to be good. All Halo games have been rated M in America so far.

On topic, I'm looking forward to this. WaW was my favourite CoD, and I can't wait to see what else Treyarch has added.

The gameplay looked brilliant. As much as Treyarch have sponged off IW in the past, now they have truly made the CoD series their own. WaW is my favourite in the series, only just beating cod 4, and MW2 isnt even worth talking about its that awful.

The point of this is not only to receive money, but to give players the FPS sperm cells they are waiting for every year. Not to mention that every MAIN Call of Duty titles are very excellent, exciting game experiences, specifically Call of Duty 4. Plus on those GOTY Editions, I COMPLETLY agree with you. Treyarch's half-assed answer was to release a $5 off Map Pack Bundle. MW2, well, the game isn't even a year old. And it takes a GOTY award to make a GOTY edition, and only one GOTY went to WaW in 2008

90% of your post was decent, then I saw "... and MW2 isn't even worth talking about it's that awful."

I'm not going to claim you as one of many people that complain about the same thing, so please do not take any of this to heart, this might not apply to you, but MAN. Modern Warfare 2 was an excellent game. After maxing it out and reaching 7th Prestige, the only flaw was a short-lived campaign and Co-op, the overflow of hacks, glitches, and cheaters, and the NVG Goggles (I wish all of those PRESTIGE EDITION customers a merry christmas.) What made you think it was such a horrible game?

You're always going to play one multiplayer more than the other, and that's fine with me. i think it'll just be reach for me and not this.

All I honestly want is party chat...I pay for the service, and thereby would like to be able to use that said service. No party chat, then I'm not buying the game. Personally, could care less for the 3 hour campaign (seriously, that's worth $60?), and even the "new modes." I enjoyed Call of Duty much more when I could talk to my friends will either killing, or being killed...

@55 Totally agree with the party chat, it's like IW took a step back with MW2 by forcing us into game chat. For the first time I experienced what it was like to be a ps3 gamer...I hated it.

I don't really care too much about COD campaigns. I do them for the achievements :)

ITT: Massive fanboys. How hard is it for you 11 year olds to grow up and admit that even if you dont like a game doesnt mean its bad/terrible/worse. I personally hate Halo, but even Im impressed with how Reach looks.

Both series have their positives and negatives, get the hell over it.

Everyone should calm down about what game is better! There all good and we should enjoy all of them and stop crapping on each other because someone likes CoD and someone else likes Halo! I'm personally excited for all the games coming out this year and early next year! Halo, CoD, MoH, Assassins creed Brotherhood and all the others are gunna be good! If you all want someone to hate on, there's all those poor people out there with PS3!

@17 WHAT? MW2 single player sucked ballz, WaW single player was OK, the first four games were the only cod games to have a good single player campaign. Honestly the only reason everybody bought Mw2 was to play online, not alone. Btw not that I hate the cod series, I just think Halo Reach is gonna pown Black ops ass this fall.

No gore in Multiplayer is hampering my excitement. I don't want this game to turn into what I think its being geared to... kids. By Activision no less I'm sure. Yes, the same ones that need to go back to HALO and its bunny hopping second chances multiple shots to kill fantasy of a game not here, in a game for adults who want to play simulated war. Not paint-balling or laser tag, but war, bloody goreific war.

Game is overhyped. It won't be as good as it sounds.

Yeah, 91, i agree, some people will be disapointed with the game. Im not saying im not excited for it but i still don't think the game is going to live up to all the hype that it is being surrounded with.
