No, you should not.

Unfortunately, I cannot back up this opinion with any solid facts. But I didn't want you to feel neglected.

Honestly, though, I'm skeptical. Black Ops seems to be a cash-in on the whole "secret military unit" genre because from what my military friends tell me, it is absolutely nothing like what actual Black Ops teams are like. For instance, you aren't allowed to have tattoos in the Black Ops. That's sort've the purpose, that you wouldn't be identifiable if your body was ever left behind.

That said, as long as the shooting is good and the design ballers, who really gives a shit? So I guess you have to ask yourself how well you liked the last COD game and whether or not you think the team as a whole in moving in a good direction.

Well, that's what's tricky about this. I adore the Modern Warefare games, but I've been less impressed by Treyarch's stuff. But then I couldn't be more tired of the WWII theme, so maybe switching up to a more modern setting is the boost they need. This is a tough decision for me.

If you are going multiplayer then you should get it. I have read multiplayer is really good. The video clips I have seen look very good and the sniper scope shots are among the best I have seen. (I'm a sniper at heart.) No first hand but it looks good enough to at least try.

Coarse makes a good point. What is it you're hoping to get out of this particular first person experience?
