Okay, so you all have ESP. Well, the majority, anyway.
This past weekend, we wanted to know what you thought we'd give Call of Duty: Black Ops and the most number of votes went to the 8.5 – 8.9 range. And as you can all see, the game scored an 8.8, so y'all win. But don't get all cocky; your prediction had nothing to do with our decision and in fact, we had to think long and hard about that score. In all honesty, about two hours in, it was well on its way to nailing down that coveted 9.0 but see, we're supposed to keep playing. And that's when the issues we just couldn't ignore kept popping up; as entertaining and as blockbuster-esque as the adventure is, the technical problems hold it back. Even so, we highly recommend it if you're a fan of shooters, and we imagine the loyal CoD brethren will be plenty satisfied. We still feel the sting of "what if" (i.e., what if Treyarch had managed to clean it all up?) but as it stands, Black Ops is one of the most intense experiences you'll have this year.
Obviously, we can't keep that poll up anymore so we'll just shift the question: what do you think of the game? Is it meeting your expectations? Exceeding them? Are you disappointed? What's the general reaction from gamers out there? If you don't have it yet, you're not allowed to vote…scout's honor, yes?
