Maybe this is more of a review than an essay? I don't know. I categorized it as a review rather than as a blog entry this week.
Basically, it's a discussion of the single player campaign of the newest Call of Duty release, Black Ops. Mostly I do some comparison between Treyarch's approach to storytelling as opposed to that of Infinity Ward. While I realize that Modern Warfare 2's storytelling was not that well receive by the critical community, I still find myself more interested in what Infinity Ward does with the medium than Treyarch.
