In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

What do these ratings mean?

First off, this was a very enjoyable game.  The gameplay itself was every bit as amazing as we have generall come to expect from a Call of Duty game.  The first mission was great, the idea of actually trying to take out a head of state was amazing.  That said, I did enjoy the story but I would have actually liked it more if it wasn't your typical "Russia is going to kill America" ordeal.  That kind of story has been done to death, and just because Black Ops was set during the Cold War doesn't mean they had to go that route.  I would have liked to see more focus on the actual Vietnam War.  I think they should have dropped the whole "Nova Six" angle, and - if Russia needed to be involved, it should have been that Russia had covertly dragged the US into the conflict.  Anyway, that was my only real gripe.  Great game.
