Call of Duty: Black Ops is off to a tremendous start with its reported game-play data. I don't own Black Ops on the Wii, but purchased it on my PS3 instead....and I really do miss the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controls offered in Wii FPS games.
Treyarch has established themselves as being an extremely capable developer of FPS games for the Wii. Every Call of Duty game released on the Wii so far: Call of Duty 3, Call of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex, and Call of Duty: Black Ops; has been developed/ported by Treyarch, and published by Activision.
Call of Duty: World at War was the first game of the series on the Wii, to implement online multi-player.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex was a port of the original Xbox 360 and PS3 game developed by Infinity Ward, and it was the first game of the series to implement more fully customizable Wii Remote and Nunchuk controls.
Call of Duty: Black Ops is the first game of the series on the Wii, to implement voice-chat with a headset, as well as including the online co-op Zombie Mode.
If you're wondering, "Is Black Ops really doing that well compared to other games' debuts?" Well, here is what Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex's debut game-play data looked like when it debuted, just 21 days after it released:
|The old way I did data stories!
I think with the addition of Zombie mode this year, Call of Duty: Black Ops could be a serious contender for becoming the "Most Played Wii Game" in the "Per person" category.
If you purchased Call of Duty: Black Ops for the Wii, what do you think of it? If you played the other Call of Duty Wii games, do you think Black Ops is a step forward for the series, or is it more like moving sideways, just maintaining the status quo?
