Call of Duty: Black Ops launch center

Like it or not, there are few launches bigger than the launch of a new Call of Duty game. Black Ops apparently pushedalmost one millionplayersto Xbox Live on the morning it was released, and it's already receiving flurries of compliments and criticisms. And by "criticisms," we mean indignant rage.

To make it all a little easier to digest, we've gathered up all of our coverage and put it in one place. Where? RIGHT HERE. That's how simple this is - you're already where it's at. Check out our review, guides, and all the latest newsy news on the series below.

We might even update this page as new things happen! That's just how committed we are to the stuff our user experience/SEOguy told us to do. Tally ho!
