The annual Call of Duty juggernaut rolls on, shattering sales records left and right. Now for the first time, the most successful franchise in history comes on the Vita with Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified. Under the direction of developer Nihilistic, I'm sure Activision was banking on this being a big seller, but in the end Declassified is a pretty big disappointment. It's one of those things: it looks like Call of Duty, feels like Call of Duty, but it just isn't Call of Duty. The controls aren't as tight as you'd expect from the premier shooter in the industry, the multiplayer is a mess, and the campaign is criminally short. All in all, this is one mission you shouldn't partake in.
In the end, Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified is a pale imitation of its superior forebears. It's not bad for what it is, but it's not nearly as good as it should be. Frankly, I expected better. The length of the campaign is criminal-there is no way they should charge full price for this. Frankly, it's insulting. What's there isn't terrible, there just isn't very much of it. If they bring Call of Duty back to the Vita (and they should), here's hoping the next installment lives up to it's illustrious moniker.
