Hmm…. (1.19)
18/02/2017 11:59:00 3/5 By Robin 2145
Hmmn, yes definitely seems to have problems. For developers info I’m running a late 2015 iMac 27”, El Capitain, with 24 Gb of RAM. Crashes the whole computer constantly with hangs and blackouts in between…Needs attention otherwise what the hell is the point of spending £20

Loved It but Apple ruined it (1.19)

No More Game Center Game is useless unless you want to just play single player. If anyone knows to how to over come this problem i would happily rate it alot more.

Good fun, but……... (1.19)
17/09/2016 20:10:00 2/5 By Pezmannn
Even though I purchased this game in 50% sale I’m disappointed. Its good but SO buggy. Its impossible to play for more than 15 minutes without it crashing. Its being played on an iMac which exceeds all the minimum specs and plays all other games perfectly, even graphic intensive once like BioShock2 without a hitch. This is the first time I have ever had to post a negative review on the AppStore so thats not bad going I suppose but I will be looking for a refund, 15 pounds is 15 pounds at the end of the day and I’d rather invest that in an App that works as it should.

mine keeps on refusing to download and seems really dodgy

Good for what I want it for. (1.19)

I bought this game for the zombies in particular but have tried out the campaign as most people would. I remember playing this when it first came out on Xbox 360 and that being the whole reason behind it, the zombies game mode works perfectly fine for me on all of the maps. The campaign however is completely broken, at the very start of the game when you become Mason and Woods in Cuba it crashes my computer (Macbook Pro Retina, Early 2015 model). As i’m not too worried about playing the campaign this doesn’t effect me but it is still a problem. The graphics are okay for a game that is essentially 6 years old now and the controls are relatively simple if you are used to playing on computers. I cannot comment on the Multiplayer but from what I have read it is near impossible to find a game because of the lack of Mac players Overall, I would say this game is good if you want it for the zombies only, other than that I wouldn’t buy it.

Unplayable (1.19)
26/04/2016 19:09:00 1/5 By Lover of birds
Constantly crashes, each and every time you die. Game does not auto save, or save when instructed! The Team are aware of the problem and may or may not fix it in the future. Untill the bugs are fixed dont waste your money! Real potential for a great game on Mac. Just to add, Running on a 5k Imac so no issue with inefficient hardware!

So bad!! (1.19)

Worth the money for the memories (1.19)
18/02/2016 17:49:00 5/5 By Very very perfect!
I think that this is great, even if you want all those memory’s but other comments say that they get black screens and that it’s buggy but i think it depends on what type of version mac you are on, i’m on OS X Yosemite and so far, no issues, lags or even buggy black screens. I do have trouble opening the game at times to do videos on but i take it as me having a few things on the computer that i need for my movie industry. I recommend it if you want to see all memories or if you cant efford BO3 and the updated version of Nuk3town.

game hanging when i die (1.19)

Doesn’t Work - Don’t Buy it! (1.19)
22/11/2015 17:28:00 1/5 By Mike Storey
Having purchased a new Mac with Yosemite I downloaded COD Black Ops and tried to install it three times before giving up. Each time the application is installed an error displayed when attempting to open. I will be contacting the provider to ask for my money back.

Too many bugs (1.19)
11/11/2015 14:11:00 1/5 By twinter82
Game is good fun… when it works. Which is not very often. I’m sick and tired off the game hanging when I die, or complete a level, meaning i have to reboot my mac and then go through te whole long story board and level again, this time trying to complete it in one go - otherwise repeat the whole reboot etc. Getting to the point where it is unplayable now, which is a shame as the graphics, story and game play are great. Update this and sort out the bugs please!!!!

Zombies and Multiplayer?!? (1.19)
08/11/2015 22:31:00 1/5 By Diamond Osh
Why do I need to be ‘Online’ to play Zombies on Solo or play agaisnt Bots on Local Multiplayer. It’s ridiculous. Please fix it. Other than this, just a bit buggy and slow. FIX IT or PLEASE EXPLAIN

Waste (1.19)
07/11/2015 15:14:00 1/5 By greycobba
What a waste of money, when i die screen goes blank, computer(MacBook Pro) freezes and i have to reboot, absolute waste of time and money for a very expensive game.

Something has happened (1.19)
06/11/2015 15:22:00 5/5 By SLAHXX
Was working fine until El Capitan upgrade. Since then it crashes, freezes, drops out of the game, does not resume where I left off so have to play repeat levels, sometimes does not give the resume option. Pretty much useless now. Sao, what has happened here, my machine is still the same but El Capitan has done something. 5 stars is for the game, it would be 1 star for recent performance.

I knew I had to wait for the update to EC before the game would play but, now that the EC update allows me once again play the game, I keep getting crashes which means I have to restart the game and that means going through those annoying long story boards before the game plays. Also, game saved does not work or at least, it doesn’t allow me to play from where I left of which means not only do I have to watch these long story board intros but I have to start the level from the beginning. Time for a bug fix….

Terrible multiplayer (1.19)
23/10/2015 21:02:00 2/5 By Cricfan80
The single player plays fine for me, I haven’t experienced any crashes or had to reboot unlike other reviewers, I would rate the game higher if they sorted out the servers for the multiplayer, the lag is terrible and renders the game almost unplayable, which takes a massive part of this title away. I have contacted Aspyer about this and am still awaiting a reply, if they don’t fix the server side of things they need to at least drop the price as £30 is way too much for an incomplete and very poor multiplayer.

More problems (1.19)
06/10/2015 13:46:00 2/5 By Daddio:)
As another reviewer - I am having problem on second level (Vorkuta) - game hangs on black screen when I die and have to restart mac - this is NOT because I’m on ‘El Capitan’ OS as I haven’t yet upgraded. Very disappointing - had no problems with other CoD titles on Mac - it feels like this version was produced by a different team who are more interested in art work than gameplay :(

Crash City (1.19)
26/09/2015 17:09:00 1/5 By Slarty Blardfarse
Game hangs every time I play it -you then have to reboot the computer and play the whole level again including the boring, overlong introductions. Very poor.

laggy multiplayer lacks other players and prone to cheating (1.19)
22/09/2015 19:43:00 3/5 By who is nick?
slow loading and with cheats on the mulitplayer. it seems that the developer has little ability to control the so called ‘hackers’ which make the game worthless. the single player is ok but you get dragged through annoying story screens and then the game is a little slow to perform graphic-wise.

Good game and graphics but very buggy (1.19)
19/09/2015 11:16:00 3/5 By Takmen
It’s very good to have this title and great graphics on Mac OS format but this game is still very buggy. So far I’m on second (Vorkuta) level and it just gives me black screen when everytime I die. Gamepad support is very good to have and probably I wouldn’t buy it if it didn’t have it but it’s still very annoying that you can’t use it in the menus, even when you pause the game you still need to touch the mouse or keyboard to continue. And occasionally it pushes your sight to the ceiling or sky until you move or get to a point in the map.

watse of money (1.18)
20/04/2015 18:29:00 1/5 By Mo💙
I got this to play with my friends who own a pc and we dont have the same servers

Lags my Mac - I want a refund (1.18)
07/04/2015 10:21:00 1/5 By Braddz44
This game lags out my Mac and it uses loads of it's Memory. I can’t even play a game of zombies on it because the lag makes the FPS really bad and jumpy. And I cant even do anything in the background. My Mac meets all the requirements as well. It also has crashed my mac. I would like a refund ASAP please. I can’t believe I wasted £30 on this...

dlc pack (escalation bundle) (1.18)
02/04/2015 00:52:00 5/5 By Bo55y12
Its says that there are in app purchases so i decided to buy one and i use it. I cant go on the dlc maps, (hotel, zoo etc because it keeps saying, “you dont have the escalation pack, you can purchases this is the app store”. I’m really annoyed and just wasted £18.99. I dont know what to do now. However the game is good, I love multiplayer and zombies but the only thing letting me down is the escalation map pack. All together its a sick game.

No in game save - you have to always start at the beginning of a full level (1.18)
26/03/2015 13:55:00 3/5 By SophieGee
As many others have said, this is a good game made incredibly frustrating by the ‘no save’. You can be almost at the end of a level, but if you leave the game you have to start at the beginning again. Too many cut scenes that you cannot skip (which makes the no save situation doubly frustrating). Great graphics, nice ideas etc, but often you just think you just cannot be bothered to start the same level all over again!

Two Stars is generous (1.18)
21/03/2015 15:11:00 2/5 By Bowen1154
Well, it’s better than Fahrenheit, but then, counting my toenails is more engaging than Fahrenheit. COD Black Ops is a severe let down after the previous COD offerings. Why? 1) Two many and too lengthy video cut scenes and not enough game play. 2) A confusing (and difficult to find!) resume option. 3) Some levels do not save, they throw you back into the previous level where you have to suffer the cut scenes again AND play it all again and then if you don’t finish it, but you do save it, bingo you are thrown back to the previous level again and so on! 4) Overall, not that engaging, nowhere near as good as COD Modern Warfare or even COD MW2 or for that matter even COD MW3! 5) I have already got so bored with this peice of junk that I have deleted it from my hard drive, prefering to use the space for something more entertaining such as typing tests. 6) Having purchased this turkey and the awful Fahrenheit on the basis of the App Store telling me how wonderful these games are, I can only assume that the App Store’s understanding of “a Classic” is way different from mine. Solution - don't buy anything else from the App store. Clearly they don’t play the games themselves. Conclusion:- Don’t buy this, Don’t buy anything on the App Stores’s recommendation and probably, don’t buy from the App Store at all.

Do not waste your money (1.18)
26/11/2014 16:42:00 1/5 By Baldybig boy
Got this on PS3 and now on my mac and this takes forever to load, stilted game play, you can’t save and pick up where you left off, oh no you have to restart the levels, will suddenly pause, all in all an absolute waste of money and has put me off ever buying another of their products for my mac or ps4.

Only online zombies and combat training horrible idea (1.18)
21/11/2014 22:20:00 1/5 By MaxOwers
i brought this as it is one of my favourite games i hoped i could use it to kill free time in college by playing zombies and combat training, however only the single player campaign is available due a consistent “unable to verify servers” making the game worthless and unplayable only gets a star due to the fact it does run smoothly.

connection (1.18)
15/11/2014 00:17:00 1/5 By Gwapitonggwapo
