SP Spoiler Alert (sort of)
Rumors were floating long before the release of Black Ops, that we would see the return of Viktor Reznov. If you are unfamiliar with him, chances are you didn’t play World at War.
Besides the fact that Reznov is voiced brilliantly by Gary Oldman, there are other reasons why I was so freakin excited to see his return in Black Ops.
There are only a handful of video game characters who really make a profound impact on me. Reznov makes my list. In Black Ops we find that he has been captured and taken to Vorkuta. Time behind those walls and bars did not dampen his spirit or his deep love for Mother Russia. He holds his homeland close to his heart and would do anything to protect it and it’s people.
There are some great values tucked away in Reznov’s story and the entire SP that I think too many people over look. There is more to a game than it’s MP. Personally I love a good story. Call of Duty Black Ops had an amazing one. Like a book that I couldn’t put down, I found myself hooked to this SP. So take some time away from pwning noObz and give the campaign a shot. It’s well worth it.
