We last looked at Call of Duty: Black Ops' and GoldenEye 007's game-play hours from the data reported on November 29. You can read the report, HERE, in which I compared both games' debut game-play hours, and showed which game had a higher play-time after the first 21 days each released.
Do the reported game-play hours for Call of Duty: Black Ops and GoldenEye 007 from November 29, 2010 to December 20, 2010, appear to show one of these Wii FPS games is clearly pulling ahead of the other? Let's take a look!

GoldenEye 007 has seven more review scores in its average, and Black Ops has an additional five review scores in its average. The increase of review scores, has caused both games to decrease in their overall "professional" review score average. Call of Duty: Black Ops has seen a 2.01% drop to its review score since December 6, while GoldenEye 007 has only dropped .11%.
I think it will be interesting to see if one, or both, of these games get a significant increase in players reporting game-play hours in the next 2 weeks. I really wonder how many copies of GoldenEye 007, and Call of Duty: Black Ops are sitting under Christmas trees as I'm typing this, waiting to be opened in a few short hours.
I would say based on the game-play hours reported so far before Christmas, Call of Duty: Black Ops will continue to be the "most played" Wii FPS game released in 2010. It may not have the most number of players reporting data, but Black Ops players are clearly playing it more often and for longer periods of time according to the reported data, than GoldenEye 007 players.
I'll be watching them both in the coming weeks, but I hope all of you have a merry Christmas, and get to spend time with friends and family...perhaps even drinking some coffee and playing video games with them!
