Call Of Duty: Black Ops has been another huge success story selling millions of copies since it was launched. The player assumes the role of various characters during the single-player campaign, changing perspectives throughout the story. The playable characters are special forces operatives conducting black operations behind enemy lines. In this way, the player’s characters have their own traits such as voices and shadows. Each mission features a series of objectives that are displayed on the heads-up display, which marks the direction and distance towards and from such objectives. The player is accompanied by friendly troops throughout the game. Although primarily a first-person shooter, the player pilots a Hind helicopter and guides friendly troops from a SR-71 Blackbird reconnaissance aircraft.
With high image quality settings, the system generates impressive frame rates, averaging around 80 during most of the game. There are a few instances when it drops to around 60, mainly when moving between closed and open environments.
