Call of Duty: Black Ops Preloads

Steam and Direct2Drive each are offering preloads of Call of Duty: Black Ops for customers who have preordered or pre-purchased the military shooter sequel (Direct2Drive is also offering an additional 20% off any other Call of Duty game). The Direct2Drive page says has this to say about when the game will unlock: "Current Release Date: November 9th, 2010 at 7AM PST." For its part, the Steam page currently says: "This game will unlock in approximately 14 hours," which would seem to be about 10:00 am tomorrow morning, but according to what an Activison rep told Shacknews, store-bought copies can be unlocked as soon as they are purchased, even though they use Steam as well.

Very cinematic single player.
Interesting story good script.
Menu interface's & cutscenes very polished.
Maps very detailed.
Perks well done in multi.
Zombie killing looks like a fun addon has a bioshock vibe.

AI surprisingly /shockingly dumb.
Can't see any option on a par with MW2 spec ops for co-op gaming.:(
Muti not completely smooth but still very playable.
Guns feel tinny after the thumping heavy bass and destructable environments of MOH.(Oh well thats why we have an array of games)
Heavily scrpited, bit more ground given up to consoles. (Not surprised by this as its not new & some aspects I really enjoy)
eh... relax & enjoy the ride, it's a blockbuster!
