By 2006, the Xbox 360 was already on store shelves and the PS3 was due for release that year. However, the PS2 and Xbox weren’t about to be forgotten about anytime soon. Those systems may have been in their twilight years, but they still had some worthwhile games for us.
Featuring destructible environments, fantastic sound, and what were stunning graphics for the time, Black allowed the last-gen consoles to have one last moment in the sun before the next-gen took over. Upon its release, Black received great reviews from critics and fans alike. Unfortunately, the planned sequel for Black was eventually scrapped, but there are many of us out there now who remember a time before Call of Duty was the king of first person shooters, a time when Black was the best shooter in town.
