Call of Duty: Black Ops
Treyarch gets a bad wrap for being the developer responsible for the non-Infinity Ward Call of Duty games. Sure, both of the Modern Warfare games are considered pinnacles of the current generation’s first-person shooter genre, but that doesn’t mean that Treyarch’s efforts (Call of Duty 3, Call of Duty: World at War) are any less worthwhile. Now that the dust has cleared after the big Infinity Ward incident, Treyarch is left shouldering the responsibility of carrying the Call of Duty name into the future. At least for the time being anyway. Fortunately, Call of Duty: Black Ops is more than capable of holding the franchise fort down. With a decent, if predictable, story, and an incredible amount of online customization, Black Ops is a can’t miss shooter that fires on almost all cylinders.
