After my Dead Island failure, it was time to switch over to my PS Vita for a little while so that I could be left alone. The PS Vita made all of that seem easy because you were able to switch over to it and people couldn’t tell if you were online or not. This was a time when there was only the PS3 and PS Vita, but now if you’re using your PS Vita you can clearly see it on your PS4. Anyway, back to my unfinished game, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified.
Unlike the other Call of Duty games, this one basically has no story and only four modes. There’s operation mode in which you take different operations over and over again until you finally get them right and then get a rating. There’s a time trial mode where you have to do a specific thing in a certain amount of time. There’s also hostiles mode which I don’t even remember playing. Then there’s the classic Call of Duty multiplayer. While everyone basically plays Call of Duty for the multiplayer, the normal Call of Duty games at least have some kind of campaign mode and aren’t some half-assed game that Black Ops Declassified is.
Like I said last week, I didn’t run out and purchase this game, this game came with my PS Vita when I purchased it. It was either this game or some Madden game and I wasn’t having it. So Call of Duty it was and this game actually sat there for a while because I didn’t want to play it. I didn’t want to be one of those Call of Duty people. This was one game that I had no interest in playing, until I basically ran out of games for my PS Vita. This was because I refused to pay for PS Vita games, but that’s besides the point. Anyway, I played this game for a short period of time, got really bored of the operations and time trial mode and went into the multiplayer. There I basically found what I was looking for. I spent a lot of time playing this game for a couple of weeks and surprisingly the PS Vita multiplayer, like any Call of Duty multiplayer, was really active so I continued to play. Unlucky for me though I didn’t realize that at this time that my PS Vita microphone was always on which meant that people I was playing with probably heard a lot of me mouthing off and a lot of The Golden Girls in the background. So why stop playing if I was enjoying myself? After a while it got old and the PS Vita online connection was sketchy at best so I just gave up.
As you can see from the picture above, I was only able to get a whopping 3 trophies out of the 34 trophies this game had. I got one for starting the operations portion of the game, for getting melee kills, and for saving everyone in a certain operations game. That was it. Surprisingly there were no multiplayer trophies. Anyway, there are a bunch of trophies for basically being badass at this game. Sadly I suck at this game with all of its different modes and this was all I was able to get.
Probability of this game getting played again…0 out of 5.
I really have no interest in playing this game again and it’s not even installed on my PS Vita anymore. The only fun I had was the multiplayer and I’m pretty sure by now it’s dead. I could be wrong, but I doubt that any of the connection problems were fixed and while those can be overlooked for a period of time, eventually you get to that point where you can’t overlook them anymore. So for that reason, I will take my pathetic 3 trophies, giving me a D rating in this game according to PSNProfiles.com and be on my way.
Now it’s your turn. Did you get this game with the purchase of your PS Vita or did you go for Madden? If you went for Madden do you feel like you made the right choice? Or did you get this game? Love it? Hate it? Let me know down in the comments section and next week, I’ll tell you how I was roped into getting another game by my “friend” and played half-way through it until she made some new friends and I was just an embarrassment and got stuck with this game and never finished it. You would think that after Dead Island I would have learned my lesson, but I didn’t and that’s why I’ll tell you next week why I never finished Dead Island Riptide.
