Game Modes:

Call of Duty: Black Ops contains single player, multiplayer, co-op multiplayer, and Zombies multiplayer game modes as well as two known mini-games, Zork and Dead-Ops Arcade. In the single player campaign, players take on the role of two special forces operatives, Mason and Hudson as they go behind enemy lines and "re-live" the early missions through a series of flashbacks while being interrogated. As part of the missions players will encounter some famous historical figures such as former President John F. Kennedy, Cuban leader Fidel Castro, and former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara.

The multiplayer game mode includes half a dozen or so maps upon release and the same type of leveling/reward system that is found in previous Call of Duty games. One addition to the multiplayer mode is the ability to purchase upgrades rather than having to earn them. The multiplayer wager mode allows players to gamble in-game money that can be used to purchase more powerful weapons and upgrades.
