Call Of Duty Black Ops II Now In 3D
Call of Duty: Black Ops II — the latest from Activision is one of the most sought after first person shooter video game right now. To top it all, it’s in 3D which makes it all the more interesting.
The box however does not spell out the 3D feature of this game nor has its maker gone to town trumpeting the game’s foray into an extra dimension to make things all the more realistic. One therefore has the natural query of where from the 3D aspect in this game comes into the picture.
Interestingly, the entire 3D episode comes to the fore thanks to the advertisements that come on TV or in the print media, which is likely to make on believe it is LG Electronics that is behind the 3D effects of this game. The fact that LG already has earned considerable respect in the 3D genre of TV making and has also ventured into the making of TV sets that are of the ultra high definition class. LG’s latest TV that is 4K capable measures a mammoth 84 inches and costs $20,000. The ad of this set claims Call of Duty would be a game that one would enjoy more on this set rather than on any other 2D compatible TV. This factor has been verified and it indeed is the fact.
But what is also undeniable is that there are other 3D capable media players that too allows one to enjoy the game in full 3D glory. The 3D feature is embedded in the ‘COD: Black Ops II’ itself and can be played on any 3D capable TV set that one gets in the market. The only essential is that the set should be a high resolution one, like that of
1080p in case of 3D TV of the active shutter types.
The reason therefore that makers of ‘COD: Black Ops II’ have not portrayed the 3D ability embedded in the game is to ensure that people who do not have 3D capable TV sets should not feel that the game is of no use to them. The game is as much playable on a 2D set as it is on a 3D TV. However, what makes the game really enjoyable on a 3D TV is the fact that in a shooter game the perception of depth plays an important role, something that can only be perceived in 3D. The player gets the feel of relative position when shooting the objects or characters which is vital in situations where the shooter will just have one chance to make or break. One can therefore change strategy to even retreat if required in such a scenario and all due to the 3D projection of the game. LG has showcased this aspect and advantage for the players who use a 3D platform for playing this game.
The game has the player facing adversaries both from ground as well as air. Pac-man players or experts would find themselves quite frequently killed due to the fast rate of action in COD as well as the aspect of being attacked from different angles and planes.
Experts of such genres of the game would find it easy to comprehend the entire scenario with a sweep of their eye. The game also provides one with a near realistic effect for the player and all this due to the 3D effects.
