Military shooters have become a staple of online gaming, and there seems to be another installment in the Call of Duty series every year now. Call of Duty: Black Ops is the 2010 addition, and once again it offers a robust multiplayer component along with the single-player campaign. Unlike CoD: Modern Warfare 2, the PC version of Black Ops has dedicated servers and it supports up to 24 players online (as opposed to MW2's 18). One new feature that is creating some buzz are the Wager Match modes, which lets people bet CoD Points on the outcome of a match. Along with the expected exotic locations and nifty new weapons, the option to play MP maps against bots has been added, and the ever-popular zombie mode makes a return.
