    They should stop making these for ds. The graphics are pretty bad, the gameplay is just un-fun and it doesn't seem to find a suitable control scheme, despite having many options. The campaign is boring, repetitive, and made even worse by slower gameplay then consoles paired with the bad controls and too much touch screen controls. Multiplayer is ok, but isn't as addictive as consoles, and zombies was just a joke. The maps in zombies were way too small, the zombies were too powerful, and guns and doors costs too much to open. For the next CoD portable, don't put it on ds. THis was very dissapointing when it had so much potential. Put it on 3ds or vita next time. Expand

    A bad game. N Space totally ruined the game and put it on a horrible Console. I hate the graphics, multiplayer wont work and I hate the touch screen controls.

    Despite its bells and whistles, Black Ops just can't escape the fact that the core gameplay just isn't fun.

    The numerous modes and options may not be hot across the board, but the strong campaign and bountiful multiplayer options provide a memorable blast through the Cold War.
