The Wii port of Call of Duty: Black Ops. The game was a monumental step up from the previous two lackluster ports on the platform. For the first time on the Wii, Call of Duty felt like a finished game and not an early demo. To do this, Treyarch had to challenge many of Nintendo's restrictive preferences, including expediting updates, bypassing friend codes, and allowing unrestricted voice and party chat. The dedicated team went above and beyond what was expected of them, blowing Wii owners away. In a series known for disappointments and questionable direction, something unbelievable and almost unknown to those outside of the small Wii Call of Duty community happened.

There was a cost, however. The game put massive strain on the system itself, especially the disc drive. Many players were reporting literally burning out their Wii consoles on the official forums. Eventually, the game succumbed to simple hacks following the games abandonment by the developers with the release of Modern Warfare 3, a common trend for the series.
