Call of Duty: Black Ops (or simply Black Ops) is a first-person shooter video game developed by Treyarch, published by Activision. Within 24 hours of going on sale, the game sold more than 7 million copies, 5.6 million in the U.S. and 1.4 million in the UK, breaking the record set by its predecessor Modern Warfare 2 by some 2.5 million copies. Black Ops is a first-person shooter. The player assumes the role of a foot soldier who can wield various firearms, of which two at a time can be carried; throw grenades and other explosives; and use other equipment as weapons. A player close enough to an enemy can kill with one knife blow. A character can take three stances: standing, crouching, or prone; each affects rate of movement, accuracy, and stealth.
At 720P the hardware struggles to maintain playable frame rates, dropping to 15 fps in a few of the environmental sections. Lowering the resolution to 1024×768 helps a little, but frame rates still struggle to remain playable at all times.
