* SoOkayItsAverage: The consensus on the gameplay is that it's solid but unremarkable. Critical opinion of the storyline [[BrokenBase was more varied]].

** This game is often called a rebbutal or deconstruction of the ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' series. People saying this seem to think COD is a jingoistic shooter where AmericaSavesTheDay, instead of a series about how WarIsHell where you don't even play as Americans a lot of the time, and America sometimes just makes things worse. ''Modern Warfare 2'' was criticized for beating the player over the head with death quotes about excessive nationalism. ''Black Ops'' explored the murky morality of the titular operations, and put the lead character's sanity and {{Determinator}} tendencies into question.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The Radioman has good taste in rock.
* BrokenBase: After the [[spoiler:white phosphorus incident]], there are exactly and ''only'' two opinions that people seem to have (reactions so polarized as to almost drag the entire game into LoveItOrHateIt territory):

* LoveItOrHateIt: There's very little middle ground between "a deep examination and necessary condemnation of violent games, violence in media, and player involvement" and "shallow, hypocritical, moralizing piece of garbage that insults players for taking the only path offered by the game". The middle ground sees the game as being an immersive dramatic work that is about experiencing a darker side of human nature rather than a simple putdown of the genre.

** Several critics noted that, despite the developers claiming to basing the narrative on ''Literature/HeartOfDarkness'', the game arguably has more in common with ''Film/ApocalypseNow'', another loose adaptation of the former: it shares ''Apocalypse Now'''s wartime setting, among other things.
