Black Ops on Wii is a fantastic shooter packed with all the features of its HD brothers, with the only exception being split-screen multiplayer.
Salvo estos problemas secundarios, la obra de Treyarch brilla con luz propia en un catálogo que haría bien en fijarse en esta producción como ejemplo de buen hacer. No hay que tener miedo ni la menor reserva a la hora de decidirse por la versión de Wii, que cumple todos los requisitos para formar parte de los títulos más destacados de la consola, además de ser una digna adaptación del contenido que tan buenos resultados ha obtenido desde su lanzamiento en el mercado. Desde aquí solo rogamos que se siga esta línea en próximos años. Todavía albergamos alguna esperanza de ver por estos lares al desaparecido Modern Warfare 2, aunque mucho nos tememos que Activision reserva otros planes para la consola de Nintendo.
Nintendo Life
Thanks to an excessively robust feature suite and developers not treating the console with kid gloves, you're not going to find a finer online multiplayer shooter on Wii than Call of Duty: Black Ops. Solo players looking for an action-packed romp with a strong story will have a grand ol' time digging in to the game's eight-ish hour campaign, and anyone in between will lose hours cracking zombies over the head. Black Ops on Wii may not be the best version of the game out there, but for the console it is unparalleled.
With World at War and Modern Warfare Reflex Edition both proving to be great successes on Wii, it is very pleasing indeed to see Activision Blizzard and Treyarch put so much commitment into making sure this year’s Nintendo home console edition is as close to its competitors as possible. The Wii edition of Call of Duty: Black Ops is by no means the inferior product many thought it would turn out to be.

Con el anterior Call of Duty que salió en Wii ya vimos de lo que era capaz la consola de Nintendo, pero con este se confirma que Treyarch le tiene pillado el pulso a la máquina, y es que este Call of Duty: Black Ops es mejor que su antecesor en todos los aspectos. Con un modo campaña igual de increíble, el juego trae un acabado técnico aún más sobresaliente, un online que funciona aún mejor y la incorporación del modo zombis, que nos tendrá pegados al mando mucho tiempo, por no hablar de la compatibilidad con el mando clásico. Como puntos negativos el apartado sonoro, que por culpa de un mal ajuste afecta negativamente al juego y la desaparición del cooperativo en la campaña, que aunque sólo permitiese un segundo punto de mira, era algo que se agradecía. En conclusión, este Black Ops nos ha encantado, y nos parece uno de los mejores juegos de la consola y el mejor First Person Shooter de Wii.
Call of Duty: Black Ops lives up to the top-notch pedigree that the series has earned, giving players an awesome new shooter to enjoy just in time for the holidays.
Ci troviamo senz'altro di fronte al miglior episodio di Call of Duty disponibile per Wii: con la sua spettacolare campagna in single player, la modalità "Zombi" (seppure castrata) aperta anche al co-op online e un multiplayer ricco di spessore e forte di alcune interessanti novità, Black Ops si pone come un acquisto irrinunciabile per tutti gli appassionati della serie. Il sistema di controllo tramite Wii-mote e Nunchuk, affidabile come al solito, presenta un tale livello di personalizzazione da prestarsi alle esigenze più disparate, mentre fa capolino per la prima volta la possibilità di utilizzare il Classic Controller. Tecnicamente questa conversione non fa miracoli (specie per quanto concerne la stabilità del frame rate, la qualità dell'IA e delle texture), ma dal punto di vista dei numeri risulta ampiamente al di sopra della media dei titoli per la console Nintendo.

La scena degli sparatutto sta diventando sempre più affollata in questi ultimi anni grazie al successo di pubblico riscosso da questo genere di titoli. Il Wii di Nintendo, con il suo peculiare sistema di controllo, potrebbe essere visto come la console in cui un FPS può dare il meglio di sé. Purtroppo però sono pochissimi i titoli degni di nota che hanno reso giustizia alla coppia Wii Remote e Nunchuck. Sebbene non possa contare su un comparto tecnico qualitativamente paragonabile alla concorrenza in alta definizione, la versione Wii dello shooter Treyarch riesce a distinguersi dalla massa e a regalare all’utenza Nintendo un’esperienza di tutto rispetto. I piccoli difetti grafici e di fluidità non minano un lavoro complessivamente ben realizzato grazie ad una solida struttura in single player e un multiplayer impressionante per vastità e varietà. Call of Duty: Black Ops rappresenta a oggi un acquisto obbligato per gli appassionati di FPS su Wii.
Game Chronicles
I did my best to look at Black Ops from a perspective unfamiliar with the 360 and PS3 versions of the game, but it is difficult. It doesn’t look nearly as good as it’s next generation brothers, but other than the visuals, very little has been lost in the translation to the Wii. Every mode exists, every level exists, and most importantly, it all just feels like a Call of Duty game. It’s not the best version of Black Ops, but Wii owners should know that they have not been forgotten in any way. Their Call of Duty experience is just as good as any other, except when it comes to the way it looks. That part of the game could really use some work.

Black Ops is a worthy title of the franchise. With its excellent story presentation, tweaked multi-player, the return of zombie mode and the inclusion of bots for practice, Black Ops, for better or worse, is recommended.

Wii puede, y Treyarch nos lo demuestra con una excelente adaptación de su última bomba "shooter" jugable. Call of Duty: Black Ops se estrena en la blanca de Nintendo con las mismas virtudes presentadas en el resto de consolas. Evidentemente, un apartado audiovisual menos potente ocasiona que el resultado final no sea el mismo, pero a buen seguro los usuarios de esta consola quedarán más que satisfechos por probar una de las novedades más explosivas para esta recta de final de año a través de su wiimote. Si eres un amante de los "shooters" y tienes una Wii, este videojuego no puede faltar en tu colección.
Bottom line -- if you prefer playing First-person Shooters with pointer controls, and you don't have a hang up about playing games that look they could run on the PS2, then this Wii port is the way to go. This is definitely not the version of the game that most pre-existing CoD fans want, but for those that are looking for a slightly cheaper starting point to the series, or if you just don't like playing FPS's with dual analog sticks, then this is the version of Black Ops that I would recommend.
Overall, Black Ops on the Wii is a great alternative to those that don't own the high end console version. Some hardware limitations and online issues keep it from being the ideal experience many fans crave, but the plethora of control methods along with the enjoyable gameplay and captivating story make it a game that people must try at least once.
Call of Duty is the Goliath of the video game world. The series has sold millions of copies and catapulted itself from a solid, World War II shooter to the sprawling multiplayer playground and Hollywood-style campaign that we know today. Call of Duty: Black Ops takes everything that made the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions great, but retrofits the mechanics for Nintendo's system. It's mostly successful in what it attempts, but it's clear that the limitations of the system played a role in this title's shortcomings.
La versione per Nintendo Wii di Call of Duty: Black Ops presenta, essenzialmente, la stessa offerta ludica di quelle per console in alta definizione: le qualità intrinseche della serie sono ben note, così come lo è il suo impianto ludico, strutturalmente tradizionale e poco sostanzioso ma convogliato da una regia ottima, che fa di particolari azioni e sequenze scriptate il suo punto forte. La minor potenza della console però inficia molto quest'ultimo aspetto, e quindi viene parzialmente meno una delle caratteristiche più salienti della produzione, già danneggiata da alcune pecche del gameplay (queste però comuni alle altre versioni). Il multiplayer è probabilmente la modalità migliore, davvero ai livelli delle controparti, e promette numerose ore di gioco per coloro che privilegiano tale esperienza di gioco. Per chi invece privilegia l'esperienza in singolo, il consiglio è quello di rivolgersi altrove, ma niente paura: su Wii non c'è poi da guardare molto più in là.
Call of Duty: Black Ops on Wii features an amazing amount of high-octane action and content. The online multiplayer carries the game with its addictive leveling aspects and competitive and fun game modes. The campaign delivers a fantastic story setup — as well as amazing set pieces — but fumbles a bit too much. The visuals, while good in places, are just not consistent enough throughout the package and make one curious about the possibilities of a Call of Duty game exclusive for Wii (or created visually specific for the system).
Cette nouvelle adaptation d'un Call of Duty sur Wii pose une nouvelle fois la question récurrente : pourquoi s'évertuer à réaliser des portages plus ou moins fidèles sur cette plate-forme alors qu'il y aurait tant à faire en tablant sur les originalités du support ? Au final, cette version de Black Ops est certes sympathique et elle ravira certainement ceux qui cherchent des FPS jouables online sur Wii, mais elle ne tient pas la comparaison face aux fantastiques versions sorties sur PC et sur consoles HD.
Game Informer Magazine
It’s impressive how much content Treyarch managed to cram onto this Wii disc, but it’s by no means the way to experience Black Ops. The campaign is well-paced, and the multiplayer is packed with features that can keep you coming back if you can get over the less-precise controls. If you have a choice, however, this version is not the one to play.
While Treyarch has essentially reduced Black Ops to fit on the Wii, it's impossible to engage with the game when so much of what's been lost is absolutely crucial to the experience.
Gaming Nexus
Call of Duty Black Ops is a disappointment on Wii, but not for most of the reasons you're thinking. Yes, it has the typical inferior graphics, glitches and framerate issues, but the core gameplay is as solid as on the other consoles. Rather, the problem is that it's the same old Call of Duty--no innovation, no gameplay improvements, just a slightly better story and a few multiplayer additions. Unless you're desperate for CoD and only own a Wii, pass on Black Ops or get it for a different console. Discerning Wii owners looking for a good FPS should get GoldenEye, and start saving for Conduit 2.
