I recently got a chance to sit down and play a few rounds of multiplayer in the upcoming PlayStation Vita title Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified. The first thing I noticed when playing the game is how well they translated the Call of Duty franchise to the handheld. The game plays just like its console counterparts with you running and gunning down people.
The major differences are in how the game controls. Running is done by just holding down the analog stick rather than clicking it in. This takes some getting used to be it seemed to work just fine to me. Other changes include touchscreen controls for your grenades, melee attack and kill-streak rewards. These all seemed to work fine for the most part but there were a few instances where I ended up hitting the touchscreen in the wrong spot and getting killed for it.
The map I played on was Nuketown, which is a faithful recreation of the same map from the first Black Ops game and while it did not look all that fantastic to me ( probably because I am used to playing the PC version of most games ) it did certainly look very impressive for a handheld title.
Overall I would say that I am pretty impressed with the title from what I have seen so far. If you’re a fan of the series and you have a PlayStation Vita I would say definitely keep an eye on the title this holiday season.
