I've never been a fan of FPS and the last FPS I actually enjoyed of first Gears of War.
Any pointers on Black ops from experts?
Takes a while to get used to what guns you're comfortable with and such, but it's pretty easy to pick up. Maybe play some campaign (it's very movie-like in my experience, can definitely suck you in for a few hours) and then hit live if you have it.
You're going to get absolutely lit up on live until you learn the maps, so you'll definitely enjoy the game a TON more after playing it for like a week because you can actually compete. It's really fun though, definitely a solid purchase, especially for me because I'm not a huge fan of Halo.
