Call of Duty: Black Ops calls you to buy Steam CD keys

Call of Duty Black Ops - Trends

Breaking away to forge a new path

The Call of Duty series are a collection of first-person shooter games -- buy Steam CD keys here if you somehow have no knowledge of it -- which initially rose to popularity with its odd (at the time) gameplay of having AI-controlled characters as allies during single-player mode. Back then, shooter games usually involved players in solo missions, without any sort of backup. Along with the game's World War II setting, the feature was one of the reasons the first few games catapulted the entire franchise into the money-making machine that it is now, with the current installment making rounds at the moment.

But the developers were not contented by the sheer number of people getting in line to buy Steam CD keys for their mainline series, a common trend in studios' armed with established franchises like the Battlefield series. And gamers, being the hard-to-please types that they are, would eventually get tired of playing games that follow a similar structure.

And that's how the sub-series Call of Duty: Black Ops became a franchise of its own. Let's take a look back at the first game to ever bear the 'Black Ops' moniker -- Call of Duty: World at War is technically the first in the Black Ops sub-series.

Buy Steam CD keys for CoD: Black Ops and experience the beginning

Arguably, Call of Duty: Black Ops is notoriously known for featuring a questionable new weapon in the series: the crossbow. The weapon may sound a bit out of place in a military setting, but once you get a good feel for it, it's actually pretty cool. And if you are one of those who buy Steam CD keys for shooter games just to showcase your close-range skills with the knife, Call of Duty: Black Ops also offers ballistic knives for deployment. So, if you want to feel what it's like to take down an opposing player with a knife but has no guts to do it up-close, then the ballistic version is an alternative.

The setting of the game takes you behind enemy lines to conduct covert operations (hence the subtitle of the game), but with the added feature of being told between multiple characters throughout the main story. The story is progressed by completing the objectives in each mission.

The multiplayer mode also offers you the chance to record online gameplay, then a first in the series. So, if you were boasting something during online gameplay in the previous games but had no evidence to support it, you won't have that problem in Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Another feature that would go on to become a staple in the series is the cooperative mode called "Zombies", where players assume the role of popular figures in history and team up to battle zombies at The Pentagon. The feature was originally featured in Call of Duty: World at War and was carried over to this title after some improvements.

Overall, Call of Duty: Black Ops is a game you should buy Steam CD keys for, either for nostalgia purposes or if you just somehow missed it during the initial launch all those years ago. Check out its sequel, too.
