Call of Duty Black Ops

War is hell, especially after you’ve stormed the beach at Normandy for the 15th time. So we were excited when the makers of Call of Duty, the reigning warlord of combat video games, moved out of World War II and into a more modern theater of conflict.

In Call of Duty: Black Ops (360, PC, PS3, Wii) players sign up as members of a special-ops unit on Cold War–inspired missions set in Southeast Asia and the Soviet Union, locations that fit perfectly with the series’ superior writing and sweat-and-blood aesthetic. Clear out jungle tunnels with guns and grenades, then use a C4 to send a Viet Cong headquarters up in flames.

When it’s time to clear out, call in air support and pilot a Hind helicopter over the trees as you rain down missiles and engage in a dogfight with enemy choppers.

The multiplayer matches keep you running and gunning online and help unlock new weapons, uniforms and gadgets to take into battle. Once you’ve sharpened your killer instincts, try one of four Wager Match games in which you gamble points against other soldiers; the “One in the Chamber” match gives each player a knife and a gun with a single bullet.

Later go mercenary and pick up an online “contract” with criteria such as shooting down 50 players in a set time limit. Your next step: Collect your reward and move on to the next mission like the cold-blooded killer you are.

Call of Duty: Black Ops is the first Call of Duty game title set during the cold war era. Call of Duty: Black Ops will be available for sony PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS and also on PC.
