Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified Campaign 42 Minutes Long

8

Critic reviews for Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified are yet to come in, but early signs aren’t looking good. Whilst Treyarch’s console shooter has been praised for reinvigorating the franchise, it appears nStigate Games’ Playstation Vita port is over before the action even begins.

Those in the industry know that when publishers fail to provide review copies to mainstream sites, it usually means that the finished product isn’t likely to sit too well with critics. As Black Ops Declassified is one such game that has been kept in the dark, its unsurprising to hear such claims in regards to the brevity of the story mode.

The bragging rights come from Dan Ryckert, Associate Editor at Game Informer, who tweeted:

Apparently, the campaign is set to feature ten missions, all of which don’t have checkpoints. Rather than this adding to the game’s difficulty however, each mission takes on average five minutes to complete, making the inclusion of such a gameplay feature irrelevant. Ryckert claims that the game has, “less than an hour of single player content in total.”

As a site that specialises in the single player experience, it appears that this is one game to avoid. You can expect a full review of our impressions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 over the coming days, and we’re confident in assuring you that this is the shooter to aim for to quench your adrenaline fuelled needs.

As for the Playstation Vita port, we wish it just stayed Classified.

  1. If it were 99 cents would this be a big deal? I&#039d love to have some quality experiences I could complete and toss over my shoulder in under an hour, if the price were right.

    1. $.99 cents is to small. I&#039d go for about $5-$10. Since this does have a multiplayer mode.

      This isn&#039t marketed towards me anyway, so I wasn&#039t interested in the first place, but this is shameful.

  2. Seriously? 42 minutes? That&#039s the length of the average Metal Gear Solid cutscene! If those 42 minutes are not the most emotional, inspired, and intense 42 minutes ever, I don&#039t see how in the world this game could be worth $50 if you&#039re only in it for the single player.

    I know this could very well be a speed run, but at most this can&#039t be more than two hours. Disappointing, to the say the least.
