Black is a decent game with some nice graphics. It also comes with some great sound. As well it contains an extremely forgettable story but that is fine. I got the game for its gameplay. Which at times is just more or less decent and frustrating. Black is a fun game about 70% of the time and the other 30% is either filled with some odd moments. These odd moments are why does it take a clip to kill an enemy. I think it was their way of making the game more difficult. On the EASY setting you should be able to make it through the game. The emptying a clip into a guy is what brought the score down for me. You will in about every level find a guy up above you on a catwalk or in a window shooting at you with an RPG. Nothing wrong with that but it does get old after every single level. The level designs are mediocre and not really interesting. The only thing interesting about them is the graphics as the graphics do look pretty good. Decent game, worth picking up for a playthrough or 2.
Awesome Shooting Game!!!
Well, this is the first time in...4 years that i try a First person Shooter, yes im telling the truth. The last first person shooter i played was...the second Medal Of Honor. So I'll try to give my best description of it.. The storyline is quite simple, a lot fo talking, basically giving u a vague hint on whats going on. The controls are soooo easy to use, even for an almost "retired" FPS Gamer, The graphics are some of the best i've seen on a PS2 Game, U are always engaged in something, either u are trying to get somewhere, or u are trying not to get killed, the action is so good, u are walking in a cementery, and suddenly u have to take cover immmediately or u will get killed, the difficulty is also well balanced. The only thing i didnt like about this game is that even on a 5.1 sound system...everything sounds exactly the same, contrary to the last MOH that I played where u could actually hear where the bullets where coming from. U will not be dissapointed when buying this game :D
Not The Best Game!!!
This game is rather short ,I wanted this game for a long time and one day I got it ans I was really excited about it and thought the game would be very long and I was On the last level of the game which was kinda hard but, I quit so I played one night and then I beat it and I was All like thats it??? I got real mad so I sold but there is one cool thing about it (Silver Weapons) those things are amazing but i dont like the way the look!!!, The weapons are good but there could have been more of a selection in the game like you use the same guns alot and the guns you like you hardly use them at all.Man The Clips in the game are kind of weird like the ak-47 you know 30 bullets but they make 3x more bigger i not saying it a bad thing its just not normal . The Thing I dont get is when you kill someone with a silencer they still hear you and then start attacking you ,man I wasted My Money But hey thats jus if your still intrested in the game you go head and you buy because im just writng a rreview fro the game!!!!
Black was a fun FPS and it showed off what the PS2 can do. First is the Graphics they were fantastic for 2006 and the PS2, it absolutely pushed it to it's limits, there are bullet holes everywhere and from every shot, there where sunlight rays from cracks in the walls it looked very realistic for a PS2 game and I was impressed. The Game play was very fun almost everything was destructible or explosive and that is something that will please any FPS lover, I liked the live action cut scenes they were original and actually well acted just wish they offered more than to people talking at a table, the only problems were weapon accuracy and button layout/mechanics, the game didn't allow you to aim down the sights like most FPS's and the buttons were a bit weird and hard to learn. Another thing I didn't like was the health bar you seemed to loose health way too quick and limited health packs made playing sometimes a challenge. . The sound was good a bit fuzzy at times along with not the best script, but nothing too bad with the live action cut scenes, just again needs more intelligent dialogue. The lasting appeal is decent the story is short and not very appealing, your just a Black ops agent who is sent to defeat a terrorist group run by a former member of your squad, the two big things that save it from being bad are that there is a good twist at the end and the destructibility of everything was addicting, I only wished it would have gotten a sequel.
This game is possibly the best shooter on the ps2 in my opinion. The graphics are well above its time on the ps2. The gameplay is never boring and always keeps you on your toes. The world around you in the game is your to swist and turn the way you want if you think you can explode it you probably can! the gun selection is great and and fun to look for when your in short supply there is always a hidden gun somewhere you just have to look if you brave enough.
Really good game
Really good game. This game is like a really nice one. The graphics are extremely awesome as is the sound. It is a really weird thing looking at all the detail. it is rockin'. When you shoot a car there are bullet holes. In the first level you have to shoot down a door. It's awesome. If you like Halo, Rainbow 6 Vegas, COD4, Bioshock, Gears of War, Killzone, etc. You will love this game. I bought it, and it was the best thing I ever saw. I love this game (not as much as Killzone, but it's up there with it) so much. If you like blowing stuff up, get this. The weapons, the gameplay, the graphics, the sounds and the controls are all perfect. But this game is really short; only about 6 hours of game play; for a vet I'd say about 4 hours. But this game is so much fun; I play it over and over. I've had it since it came out, and it still doesn't seem repetitive to me. So go get this game. it is so cool!
black: kill em' all
i was looking for a new game to play and i found BLACK and purchased it. i took it home and began to play it and instantly fell in love with it!! The guns are awesome, the graphics are awesome, the sounds of bullets flying and explosions are awwesome!!! I have played this game so many times that I can't stop!! You know what else is awesome about this game? the silver weapons which are equipped with unlimited ammo. My favorite weopns are the Glock, the Remington shotgun, the SPAZ 12 shotgun, the M16A12, the MP5, the Magnum, the Sniper rifle, and the Heavy machine gun. I heard a rumor that there was going to be a sequel and I hope it turns out to be true! The missions may be long but this game is well worth buying. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!!!!
