Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies
Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies by Activision Publishing, Inc ($ 7.49)
Available on iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad
The Call of duty franchise is one that creates excitement towards the end of each year. This was always true for console gamers, but now the same can be said for us Apple enthusiasts. The second zombie title released exclusively for the ios, Black ops zombies takes a section of the console version and delivers an enjoyable multiplayer experience. The game isn’t without its flaws, though the entertainment value cannot be denied.
While a solo match can be played against the constant waves of Nazi zombies, multiplayer holds the true replay value. With the option of up to four players at a time, gamers have more chance of survival sticking together, powering up and defending barricades when others are around to revive the fallen.
All the key aspects found in the original Black ops are present here, with achievements and a levelling-up system keeping track of all the mayhem. An assortment of weapons can be purchased as the game progresses, ranging from pistols, shotguns, automatics and grenade launchers.
There is only one playable map at the moment, the run-down German cinema, but more have been promised in a later update. Finding other players online can take quite a while, with the most common result being a 2-player co-op. Hopefully with more users and updates the title will flourish and reach the potential that is clearly visible.
With so many stunning games being released at the moment, the question is simply whether ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies’ stands out from the pack. If the creators fulfil their promises, the newest COD app will achieve this status.
A recent update was added to improve online connection and overall stability. This seems to be creating a more seamless experience.
