Black Ops: best menu screen ever?

Rubbish opening screen for Call of Duty: Black Ops, eh? You've booted up the game and are ready for something special only to be faced with a drab old menu with a television showing the various options. Hell, who cares? You just want to dive straight into the action and rack up some kills, don't cha?

But wait! Why not waggle your analog sticks a moment, and press those shoulder buttons... Now you weren't expecting that, were you?

Check out the video below to see how Treyarch have hidden a secret game in the main menu - a top down, twin stick zombie shooter called Dead Ops Arcade. Not only that, but all you achievement hunters out there can also rack up a few points too.



Megabits is impressed - and grateful for the points - but we also took a few moments to look at some of the other impressive menu screens of games from years gone by...

Brutal Legend

Colin McRae Dirt 2

The Chronicles of Riddick

Half Life 2

Are there any other great examples that we've missed? Leave a comment below...


Twisted Metal Black had the first menu screen that truly wowed me.
